Thank you so much for that comment Mike.

This is a great kit, I've not used any filler whatsoever on this. I would recommend this to anyone that wants a great display piece.

Definately doing a video of this working.

Just allowing the paint to dry overnight, and put a base coat of XF 84 Iron on the tracks.



Tomorrow i will drybrush Mr Metal to give it highlights.

I can't foresee needing much but a good dusting after this is done Nigel. You've done an excellent job of it so far.  [smile]

Thanks Pete, i love those AB's.

Talking of which, i haven't put Klear through one yet. What's the best thing to clean the brush with after using it.

Thanks Pete, I've actually got some of that, although don't know the percentage. I'll give that a try. Cheers.

Well look what turned up today...

It's lovely and quiet and folds up into a carry case.

That is quite difficult to do in Ireland, one day rain next day sun, snow. Four seasons in one day.

...and now it's raining from my airbrush!!! Although i have a water trap on my compressor I'm now getting it in my airbrush, water dripping from every seal! Stripped the brush down to clear, clean, dry and lubricate.
Hose getting the same treatment, hanging out to dry. Opened water trap and left to dry out.

The model....soaked up most of the spider splats to take the bulk off. Just have to see what damage this has done in the morning.

As my Grandad used to say "if it's not an arse, it's an elbow", he had a saying for everthing.

Very cool Nigel ,That should help reduce the number of Unicorn sightings when you are spraying Alclad.
This picture shows how large that tank is too, a real beast of a machine.

outstanding! yes, i loved it when you tossed out the video of the tank cruising across your workbench. That is awesome. Screw any critic who says otherwise! This tank has always fascinated me. I may consider doing a series of WWI tanks sometime?

I agree Ted, something about it's shape appealed to me when i was a kid, i still have the 1/72 Airfix version.
This is without doubt the best fitting model I have ever done, i have the decals on now and has been resting to dry completely.
I now have a copy of the WWI Weathering magazine special to get the weathering correct, nice book/mag. If you are going to do a set of WWI tanks I recommend you getting the Mig WWI paints.

Hope to have this on my bench mid-week.

coincidence.............This past Monday night at the scale model club meeting, one of the members brought the identical model in for our "show and tell". He echoed so many things you have in your WIP thread that it about freaked me out! His kit is not motorized but he said he would not hesitate to do that version. Everyone had a good laugh when I told them you "drove" the tank from the workbench to the paint booth!! Yay Nigel!
