Sprue shots etc. to follow (when I've finnished wallpapering the bedroom :emo2
I have the Up Armour version also a trumpeter kit. We do seam to have a good spread of kit makes in this build. It will be fun to see how they compare.
Anyway plenty of opportunity for loads of dust on the pair of them :woohoo:
All the extra work on my guntruck and overtime at work is holding up everything else right now, hopefully get started on the Challenger some time next week, it's a good job it's a 6 month build :smile8:
Do you have a link to that barrel? be interested to see that.
1/35 Challenger 2 barrel [LM20000] - $11.80 : LionMarc, LionMarc
I got mine via ebay
The quality of the moulding looks very good and it seems like I've got lucky with the tracks, mine seem to be almost perfect
There are decals for 4 different tanks but it doesn't specify in the instructions what any of them are, plus there's no colour sheet with this one either but I suppose it's not really necessary for an all over sand colour scheme. There's no PE included but in fairness there's lots of plastic for 17 quid
And here's the extra bits, Eduard PE and Lionmarc barrel
I've really enjoyed this build so far, it's given me a definite taste to do more modern stuff in the future
Anyhow, this is what it looks like following the last 2 weeks of superglueing tiny pieces of metal to my fingers
How many times do you think you will snap/bend those antenna while painting it???
A nice clean build. Now lets see a nice dirty paint job!
photo etch is the same as i've just ordered too. At lease i now know what it'll look like.
Have fun, John
PS, my computer has stopped online long enough to post :badcomputer1:
They're carbon fibre so it shouldn't happen in theory, there again my powers of clumsiness are beyond all imagining
A bit of a mixed bag, most of it went together perfectly but some, especially around the turret was fairly gappy, very enjoyable though as I said
An enjoyable build this one and it's opened my eyes to modern armour too
now I went to the last post and indeed saw the finished job ..... top class mate ....
weathering, very impressed.
Love the weathering and a great result all round!
