And this is my second entry for the GB. A really cool Thunder Model kit with lots of details and challenging to build and paint. Especially since I am going to paint it in the Caunter scheme. One of the coolest camo schemes IMHO.

I have already a base for the kit and some aftermarket stowage and recovery accessories, like hinges. 

I am still looking for some nice figures to complete the diorama/base.

So here are the pictures:

All the kits:

Instructions and paint schemes. And yes, on the right the Caunter scheme which I will be doing. No idea how to mask this beauty though 😉

Aftermarket kits: Recovery tools by KFS and stowage by Panzer Art. Still in doubt to get some aftermarket wheels but can't find any sagged ones.

The base is cast in gypsum.

They indeed were used in the lend lease program. There is a paint scheme for this version but I just prefer the Caunter scheme.

Ok,so the first parts are finished. Its just part of the engine block and radiator. 
The detail is really nice. There is some flash and unfortunately also some residu of the ejection pins. But nothing which is easily cleaned up.

These two parts actually consists of about 50 pieces. So you can understand this is going to be a nice challenging build!

Something a bit different.  Nice start, and good luck with the rest of the build.

So, I spent some time on the chassis and its coming together nicely. Lot of parts are not glued to gether so I can give it the base coat. 
Its really a challenging build. With every part I have to keep in mind if I can paint it properly attached or detached of the chassis. I hope I make the right choices along the way.

Here is my progress so far. Next I will apply primer to these parts to see how they look and to see if any touch up is needed.

The rear axis can move independently from each other. This gives the vehicle the perfect way of traversing across debris and stuff. I don't know if I leave this moveable or if I am gonna glue them in a fixed position. I never have been a big fan of moving parts in models because I think it makes it more vulnerable.IMG_2876.jpeg  IMG_2868.jpeg 
The front axis is moveable too.

I moved on to the wheels. They are actually made out of different parts to represent the thread pattern. And they have actually nice details for plastic wheels. I have been looking around for some sagged wheels but couldn't find proper ones. Or at least not sagged ones. So I might actually try to make the wheels a little more sagged just by flattening the wheels. But I will first see how they look on the base.

Here are some pictures of the progress.

The front wheels are made out of five pieces. Just glue them together to get a nice detailled wheel 😉. Wheels on the back where made out of three parts.

When doing some research of the build someone mentioned the wheels actually have four holes next to the bolts. So using a small drill I made those holes.
But on one wheel I made a boo-boo. One of the holes was to close to another. An easy way to fix these mistakes or other holes you don't like is by using a bit of stretched sprue and glue it in place. Just let it dry properly and then remove the rest of the sprue. Hole gone 😃
 IMG_2878.jpeg  IMG_2879.jpeg

I also added a valve in the rim of the wheel. Just to add some detail. Don't think its clearly visible though. But all six wheels now have a valve. Its just a bit of 0.5 mm plastic rod.
