Many months have gone by since ast May and the model has sat collecting dust, but I have jusr re-started this kit after -months or so down, but here's what was done Monday.....
If you look up in the upper left of the second picture, you will see an axel pin is snapped off....hadnt noticed that until yesterday when I pulled the kit back onto the bench. What I ended up doing was glueing the roadwheels togenther as usual for that one, and glueing it directly to the chassie. Ended up solid so it should hole. I'm lucky it as a top roadwheel pin and not a bottom!
Looks good mate. Going to be interested to see how you paint this baby. Still doing the captured Aussie one? Good on you for getting back on the horse too.
The heavens were the grandstands and only the gods were spectators. The stake was the world, the forfeit was the player's place at the table, and the game had no recess. It was the most dangerous of all sports and the most fascinating. It got in the blood like wine. It aged men forty years in forty...
Finaly mate! You're off to a good start here. From what I see I must say that the ancient Tamiya kit is miles ahead of the Italaerei kit. I like this cute little tank though, havin' built two allready n' got one in the stash.
Thanks mates...yeah, this is definitely not a high end kit but it's a fun little kit. My biggest intention is to explore more weathering and chipping technique advancement, but we'll see in the end. This kit is breaking me back into the swing before starting either a Russian T-34/85 or Russian truck.....I have never done winter camo and I may stretch myself by giving it a whirl on the Eastern Front.
Yikes! Been forever and a day since I did any modeling!!! Work. Life. The usual. I am taking some time off the end of this week with the plan to rclean out and reorganize my furnace room, which also just so happens to house my modeling workshop!!! I re-modelled my basement family room and te furnace room got over-run with the leftoves. I can't even GET to my workbench, but.....I can see my little Italian tank on ot still!
Hey, no problem there mate...and no rush on 'ya. Truly.
Crickets on the nuts, front, eh?? Well, I serve a purpose
I've been on the road A LOT and finally slowing down so as I'm home for the foreseeable near future It's been so long since I smelled glue on plastic, it feels...well, weird. In my between times home, I fixed up a bunch of 28mm Battlestar Galactica miniatures....so i dod some work with glue. I found Gorilla Glue superglue is awesome stuff for white metal! Also finished up my space combat miniature game rules...starting playtesting shortly.
This Carro Armato has literally been on my mind for months....I can't wait to start work on i again. And, I've also really been missing airbrushing.....hope I haven't lost whatever touch I had with it!
Thanks for the welcome back....glad to be back in the soup.
