Scale I Build

Found 4 results

  1. This is my first attempt at a camouflage paint scheme and I did it entirely with rattle cans using poster putty and Silly Putty for the main masking material and Tamiya tape for some details. I found a single online reference that indicated that this paint scheme was within the realm of possibility, so I sized that reference art to scale and used it as a painting guide. It’s pretty much out of the box, but I did scratch build a simple hinge for the hatch behind the turret machine gun and fabricated some detail for that hatch cover interior from Evergreen plastic. I replaced the kit antenna with wire mounted in a base I made from brass tubing. The headlight lens was from the spares box. This was my first attempt at painting any kind of figure and I don’t consider the little feller finished, but I put him in a few photos anyway. I used some dry transfers to add some interest to the fuel drums (“P” for petrol). Overall, I’m pleased. Someday I may even get around to putting in the “correct” track sag and attempt some weathering on it.
  2. Really old build, A lot of my friends are military modelers and their general attitude (jokingly) was if you didn't build armor you weren't really a modeler. They had a contest coming up and wanted me to enter something and said this kit would be a great staring place. They were correct modifications include, Smooth and center turret on chassis, smooth side panels that include fences for the rear carbon fiber wing, side air intakes, smoothed front panel with SSR headlamps, chrome main gun, chrome machine guns with carbon fiber ammo boxes, new mesh rear grills, Mustang ll tail lamps. Rear diffuser and wooden F1 legality plank, full set of centerline bogie wheels with red and blue side markings, lowered the ride height, tracks with slick rubber pads, and additional air scoops on the turret. Once the body was smoothed it was sprayed in three different Chrome illusion colors to create a color shifting camouflaged paint scheme. The clear for some reason has lost some of it's shine mostly from abuse an handling over the years. May try to bring it back some day. The model did create quite a few conversations and laughs but they quit asking me to model military . Let me say here that this was for fun and I have the utmost respect for military modelers and their attention to detail and accuracy, and have made use of many of the procedures and products they use I my other modeling.
  3. Crown Vic meets Rolls Royce tank engine. https://www.autoblog.com/2020/06/18/ford-crown-victoria-gets-tank-engine/?fbclid=IwAR3dWAWHWUOrg0EMDXUfYcv3T2gxaKp_fmNT1R93TVIrwY7q2Ytpw1sss_8
  4. Hello friends, on this occasion and for a long time with enough desire I present you the T34 / 76, a medium tank of Soviet manufacture. Made of the Tamiya brand at 1/35 scale. It's the only Russian vehicle I have and I hope it's the first of many. https://youtu.be/FjFHh2L_3rI Greetings and I hope you like it
