A build of a kit I picked up in a closing down sale...and has a lot of issues. Every piece has a pin mark!



Let's start on the underside...



Thanks for looking.

Still looks like good detail in the mold? and is that sheets of PE I see? I have a leather punch and I can use it to punch thin styrene sheeting to make discs that go right into most ejection pin marks. Takes a lot of "work" out of the process sometimes.

That's a great idea Ted.



It's the pin marks on some of the tiniest parts that are a pain, and yet the supporting sprue hasn't got any.
Strange!

OMG that looks totally maddening!! *&^%$. All in all I still like the looks and detail in the parts. Guess its just a manufacturer choice re: the ejector pin marks? A few kits I have seen lately have an extra sprig of sprue that has an "Ejector Pin" attached to it. Keeps the pin marks off the kit parts but requires more "engineering" in the mold making process? more manufacturer cost? Personally I would pay a few extra bucks to avoid all pin marks that might be visible.

It is madness, although there was just something about it that drew me to the kit. I did think it had a full interior, but I'm glad now that it hasn't.
It was the price, as this had a 50% discount and crammed full of extras, including 8 rubber tyres.

I am impressed with the detail.

Rubber tyres....



loads of them and they are all level, so no wobble...



Made a start on the weapons station.



The next updates will be like a game of spot the difference, as all the hull details begins to be built up.

Thanks for looking.

Time for some spraying...so base coat of XF-69 Nato Black over whole model. This will allow me to check all joins and give the depth colour to the model.



just let this dry then correct any mistakes for highlight base...

Thanks for looking.

Update of my wierd way of post-shadding armour using flat white dusted on to areas of the hull.



Just wait for this to dry and then a few coats of hairspray.

Hairspray Update..

anyway spraying done, my first time to try this, and so far so good.



let this fully dry then on to the main base coat...

As an extra, this is going to be my next project...



...looking forwards to this one.

Thanks for looking.
