Ok fellas I'm going to kick this thing off with a little recap of this kit. I had already started this kit last November but put it on freeze for another GB thats going on elsewhere and then again for this GB. Here's where it all started. My Tamiya Fw190 D-9 fuselage halves laid out together before any cutting took place:

 

TamiyaD-9fuselage002_zpsbbe917e3.jpg

 

and after carving the front of the plane from the fuselage and the tail fin access panel from the tail:

 

TamiyaFw190D9fuselagecutup_zps8325ff7e.j

 

This'll be the update that I'll be using for this beauty:

 

Fw190D9002_zps55dcead2.jpg

 

 

Oh boy good thing this is a long community build......it looks fun but quite involved. I have to wait a week to get started on mine, gotta finish a F-150 pick-up model for a friend first. I'm one of those build one at a time guys. :unsure:

This is with the CMK tailwheel retracting mechanism "guts" in their undercarraige set for this bird. I simply could NOT resist doing this. The fuselage is together with no cockpit assembled yet. The assist spring that came with the CMK kit SUCKED so I bought some guitar string, cut to proper length, painted steel and applied a MIG productions dark wash to the spring.

Oh Mark this is a geat one.

 

It's one of the Cyber Hobby "White Box" Limited Edition kits.  I bought this one a couple years ago for asking price, $45, and now they're up to $55+ if your lucky. A friend decided to thin the heard and let me pick up another for $25.

 

I'll be building African panzers all summer!

Here's where I started with on an engine:

 

fdc12d00-bc86-4869-9530-b5cec7cab5d0_zps

 

and this is afer painting and weathering. The engine is supposed to be a dark color but I painted it a medium shade of grey (RLM 02) and applied a heavy dark wash to bring out all of the detail that this resin engine has to offer:

I love the way that wash brought out all that detail. Looking good.

 

I spent the day with my least fave thing to do, roadwheels. Not so many on this panzer thank goodness.  Adding details to the lower hull as we speak. Pics to come.

Thanks Wayne!! I've heard horror stories about working on road wheels. All the way from sanding to paint!

Ok these pics are of the supercharger/ engine accessory gear box. This part was a blast to build and is complete down to lubrication lines.

If anybody is wondering if they have seen these pics before here............they have. I started this build last year and put it off for a GB at another site and then put it off again for the GB here. I'll be caught up after I post the completed engine /nose module pictures.

Let's go a bit sideways shall we?

 

Remember this one?

 

DSCF4719_zps61ec5172.jpg

 

Base coated in Floquil enamel, Afrika Korps palm tree stenciled on using Tamiya Flat White.

 

I used liquid mask over the palm tree and attached the build to my hitech paint stand.

 

DSCF4722_zpseeb3b67e.jpg

 

A mix of Tamiya buff, Deck Tan and White yielded these results.

 

DSCF4727_zpsbf55a601.jpg

 

More to come. Gotta go to work.

Man don't that suck on the "gotta go to work"? I can certainly identify with that!! Good goin on this build Wayne!  The paint is turning out just right. To me it would seem that the weathering process is one of the hardest parts of getting an armor build to look worn and used.

For the longest time I simply did not "weather" an armor build in the sense that I added no real wear, tear or dirt. The Tank Art books by Mike Rinaldi gave me the inspiration to go ahead and weather that perfect finish to make it more realistic. Using his techniques as guidelines I am finally getting the hang of it.
