Ian, I think the missing link is the gorgeous lines of a Mercury Comet Cyclone GT.

Finally getting back into building after what must be 2 years.

Working on a 1/48 Tamiya Type 10. It is for a group build competition run by the Manawatu Scale Model Club.

I will post a full build log once the competition has finished in August, but until then here is a image on the hull and suspension painted with Tamiya TS-29 semi gloss black.

This is definitely not going to be finished in a traditional camo scheme

Cheers Michael

Stripes have happened !! - horrible job to get them to conform around the curves of the rear flared arches, but I think I've won !! - need to mix a light blue now to spray in to the gaps behind the front 'guide veins' and ahead of the aerofoil mounts. This is a fun hobby, right ??

Look at you, it's a tank, no fixed gun stuff here. Really nice so far. DML I assume?

Hey Tony
I had a few tanks in the stash and just wanted to clear them out and will get back to my SPGs when these are finished.
If I remember right they're all Dragon kits.

Thanks buddy time to get back to work.

Well, it's very early days, but look what has invaded my workbench!





Now I just have to work out a good way to paint a lot of wheels!

I've got an assortment of different size bamboo skewers to mount the wheels on and a block of foam to mount them on. First I paint the black on the tire area and let that dry.
I use circle templates to mask off the tire area and spray the center of the wheel.

Nice clean and neat build you've done

I do the same as Unky Tony... sometimes (often) I cheat and use a good 'Sharpie' - other brands of fibre-tip marking pens are available. ;)

That's what I do too. I get the sharpie and draw the tyres on after painting the whole wheel the colours I want. The nice shiny stuff gets hidden under the weathering and it's so much easier than trying to hand paint. Masks yes, brushes as in the old days for me, never again. Well done for tackling an AFV. Nice choice too.

Interesting, I thought I knew where this was going but the black suggests there may have been a change of plans.

My Type 10 for the same GB is also far from traditional. Paint and assembly is complete, with just weathering to go, but like Mike I? wont give away much more than the use of my Cricut die cutter for some 'custom' masks and a hint at one of the colurs

I use a slow moving drill, and just touch a loaded paint brush to it while slowly working towards the edges, it's really easy to do. I have a piece of aluminium rod that I've put a taper on, I can then push any wheel with any size boss on to it and paint it this way.
When I'm painting wheels that are in situ I block in all of the big areas that are easy to get to then I either use a black ink or a thin wash of paint, i come in from the big area towards the edge and when it hits the band it shoots round and gives a perfect edge which I can then fill up to.

I paint the main wheel colour first, then use a brush in my right hand with the wheel on a stick in my left, spinning it with my fingers while painting the tyre. Needs a steady hand but has always been fast and effective for me.

Still going to be the same theme as planed but felt like mixing it up with a black lower hull.

Nice Hadley. How is it as a kit?

Not that I have had much time at all, but I have been very slowly working away on my Airfix Hawk. Just adding PE to the cockpit and getting ready to button it all up
