Here's what I'm doing for my second GB. I may very well put this in a simple dio.
According to Wikipedia, Zimmerit was officially discontinued in 1944 and the paint schemes given by Revell are for 1945. So no zimmerit!
And that's my excuse and I'm sticking to it! lol
What d'you think I am? Some kind of modeller? Zimmerit's waaaaayyyyy beyond me at the moment. Maybe when I've had a bit more practise - say about another ten years!
Unlike some of the other tank builds I've seen recently, there are absolutely no interior details at all so I've buttoned up all the hatches.
Nice clean build, looks like it's coming together really well.
192 of the b****y things. Each one with 15 - count them - places to be checked for flash and cleaned up before you even start to think about how to join them to get them looking realistic!
Thought I'd have a break and look at the next part of my Mig 29. Decals! 100s of 'em!
Some parts of this hobby are better than others.
Not had that pleasure as yet. Tamiya 1:48 use 'length and link' so you get the top and bottom run in one and then double or single links to go around the wheels, nice and simple when you have done a few.
I'm making progress though. Six hours work and I've got a quarter of the links ready to start gluing!
That's a nice looking hard-edged camo scheme, once the weathering is done it's going to look amazing. Stick with the individual track links Dave they are worth it in the end. Also, if you think they are bad you should try the Model Kasten Sherman track links - 6 parts to each link, all of which need clean up!!!
All the best mate
