Great work John
Where have you been?
Have you been working, as of late?
Yes, work has been very hectic and other life happenings that are keeping me too busy to paint……but keep up with yours your doing great.
Appreciate it DM. I hope you get to paint soon.
Thanks Cyanight and John – glad you find the identification charts useful.Â For an actual history of the evolution of the sculpts, I highly recommend knp7765’s photographic inventory, located here…
…because my I.D. charts approach the subject from a different angle: in almost every case, they simply show one representative sculpt for each nationally-distinctive design produced to depict each unit type that has appeared in A&A over the years.Â The charts mostly ignore the many variations (some minor and some major) that have been seen in the sculpts – for example, the two versions of the Japanese field artillery piece, which was produced with the undercarriage either folded for towing or deployed for firing.Â The only exceptions I made were for the Panther tank, the 88mm AAA gun and the Stuka dive-bomber (interestingly, all three being German units) because of the peculiar evolution of those three units over the course of A&A’s production history (especially in the case of the gun and the plane, which started out as completely different – and incorrectly-used – units compared to their current status).
Thanks again Marc, I had forgotten about his thread. this will be very helpful as well.
