Update: not much done today as I am currently trying to get rid of the weathered look in the bathroom and re-vamping the whole room.
Latest pics show the trench block rail in place and the exhaust done. You can see what I intend to do with the sponson, still work in progress.



Thanks for looking.

That's a neat idea and a great way to show the work and details inside. Also seeing the red paint around the edges has taken me back a bit and reminded me of the Tamiya catalogues I used to admire when I was a kid (I wish I still had them) the ones I remember from the early 80s had quite a few cutaway models and some great dioramas

Great job Nigel, looks like a really cool kit. Definitely lends itself for a video reveal. [thumb]

Thinking along those lines Simon, might make a cameo appearance if any directors are looking for a Bruce Willis look alike.

Hi Nigel, just discovered your WWI thread - very cool kit and amazing detail. Love that you show the interior. For sure you have to play with it... looking forward to see the clip :-)

that detail is fantastic! when I was growing up "Linburgh Line" models had a LOT of motorized kits, especially model ships that floated and sailed. you know we will want to see a video of the completed tank in action---hope you can do that?

Going to give that a go Ted for sure. Just need to get something done on the Belle and I'll get back to spraying and weathering.

A lot of the early 1/35 tanks by Tamiya were motorised, and some of the kits still have the fixtures molded into the hull for the switch and batteries to this day.

Back at my desk, sorry for not being around.

I really want to get this one done. Amazed that my AB has not seized up, must have cleaned it well.

So Neo in hand prime time.



First few light coats of Vallejo Prmer, one more to go.
First time I've used this. Cleans well, sprays really well. I like it.

I gave the model a good clean with IPA as there is a lot of grease on this tank. Used some tape to just cover the gears.

Have a fair idea how to display this and i intend to weather this as if the mud has dried on a sunny summers day so got a tub of Mig Dry Mud.

I have also collected some garden soil, which i will sieve and bake in a warm oven on parchment paper, for the base.

Good base coat put down. Mig colours spray really nice.
Gone for a middle soil colour so as to post shade.



I like the colour, would have taken me a lot of mixes of Tamiya to get WWI colour to scale.

edit. Yellow caps have a ball bearing agitator built in...nice one!

Seriously thinking of getting a good range of the Mig paints.
Great news is I should have my spray booth soon, got a great deal on Amazon, of all places, £80 for booth, plus air vent and extra filter and p&p to Ireland..wow!
One place wanted £25 just to deliver.
Bring it on!

Okay, base post shading and hghlights on.

Starting to come together really well.



All those lovely rivets...nice. Just a light spray of pale Ochre brought them to life.

Just 3 decals to put on and then onto the weathering and chipping.

That shading is superb Nigel. This is going to look phenomenal after washes and filters. I'm really loving what you've got here already.  [smile]
