1:144 - PzKpfw II ausf L - LUCHS
This is a scalemodel of the German 'Panzerkampfwagen II ausf L' for 1:144 WW2 dioramas. Named the 'Lynx' or better known as 'Luchs', the PzKpfw II ausf L was the largest, fastest and also last version of the panzer II series. It was completely re-designed and was most used on the Eastern Front until the end of the war. About 100 left the production line..

- (4 pack available) -
The model is designed to be printed in 3 parts
- 1x Main hull.
- 1x Turret (static barrel)
- 1x Set of tracks (glue in position)
- Model is based on blueprints to maximize accuracy.
- Designed and optimized for shapeways to produce it as cheap as possible in 'frosted detail'.
Before painting, always degrease your models in a glass of lukewarm water and a drop of dishwashing soap (do not use a dishwasher!)
. Allow it to dry completely before painting.
Aplie a thin layer of paint, use 'drybrush' techniques to bring the detail alive. Paint the tracks first, before gluing in position. If you don't have a lot of experience; watch multiple 'tutorials' on youtube about painting model tanks. You can't rush art, so take your time to finish the model ;).
1:144 is a popular scale for aircraft and half the size of 1:72 models. It's a great scale when creating large dioramas with multiple models in one scene, especially if you don't have much space available. You can combine tanks, airplanes, vehicles, buildings... to create an epic historical battle landscape. (Normandy, Battle of the bulge,...)
Also very small diorama's with just one vehicule can be an intriguing 'eye-catcher' on your desk.
Thanks for stopping by & have fun!
