WIP 001

Cause of a comment I gave in this topic on the forum I recieved a very nice model of this tank from Frank Krüger, better known as Hellboy on the forum. Thank you Frank! The only condition he gave me is that I really would make the model and show it on the forum. You can find all the work of Frank, on this location http://www.hellboy-miniatures.de/ .

I will try to show it step by step like show on the building instructions included by the model. Today it will be step one and two. The next steps will follow soon I hope, because I would like to finish it before the FIGZ meeting in Arnhem, Sunday June 3th 2018. There will be a weathering workshop and this model looks like it could need some of that

Let's start with the box art. It shows the model in a Pacific theatre. The figures shown on the box are not included, but Frank was so kind to include two figures, some stowage and an aerial to complete the model. Thanks again Frank!

Step one

Image

These are the two side pieces with all the wheels on. Not much to glue here but a lot to paint. To be complete, I don't have an airbrush, so I paint all with brushes.

Paints used so far:

- Revell 46 Nato olive
- Revell 09 Anthracite

Image

Image

Step two

Image

Adding the rest of the bottom of this tank and some more small parts. Again a lot of brushwork, three layers were needed to cover the surface. But I'm pleased with the result so far.

Looks like I will have to do some retouching on some parts. But no problem, we will do that with a smile!

See you all in the next episode. ;-)

PS: You can find some more blabla and pictures on the blog!

On the other hand, there was a Krüger's beach. And a party on it.
Shouldn't be the LVT there to free the beach fom drunken people, I think.
