This is one of my Christmas present models. SWMBO got it for me as I ride a BMW R1150 (Not with a sidecar!). I Intend to build a Diorama with this and a Panther.
I knew it would be fiddly as the kit is very small and I have frankfurter fingers. Every part also had an offset mould line to be cleaned off. Whilst I appreciate that accuracy tends to slip with the small scale and size, I was disappointed to see that the exhaust pipe headers were not represented in the model.
I chose to paint to outfit in Panzer grey, a colour that I mixed myself using Tamiya XF24, XF50 and XF2 to a ratio of 9:8:3. The mix was put together using the iModelkit software on the ipad, using FS36118 as my original reference.
I made the exhaust pipe headers from plastic coated wire and painted them Panzer grey. Rust and 'Blueing' was added using Tamiya weathering master. The HT leads were made with a strand of copper wire.
The Images are at least twice life size.
I am pleased at the result, and have got the figures to do now (Help!) As usual, comments are welcome (good or bad).
