The advance recon groups had other Ideas.
So looks like there wont be any nude bathing :-(
Must try to find the time to make a start soon...
Have fun, John
Typical Tamiya, almost falls together, so After about 20 minuts, I got this.
OK I did stop to drink my tea this time, so I still need to do the cabin part. Then is a splosh of primmer.
Might start on the other one later and paint them together.
You did well though in 20 mins (although it's not a race - so I'm told :winkingshades:!!!)
Great start and an interesting build. Will there be any water in this dio?
@ Martin; Why spoil a perfectly good cup of coffee by putting milk in it??? I'll send a message and you can get the bike started. Might well be cold by the time you get here though!!
Onwards and upwards as superman would say.
Need to be able to pose them so seperat arms and legs if poss. would be a great help!
Any ideas suggestions well received.
Makes it a bit easier to see dont it!
So might get a bit of colour on it after Germany has whipped Spain's but in the footy!
Figures: Dragon or Master Box get my vote. Dragon sculpting is generally very good and the equipment is excellent (especially on the 2nd Generation sets). Master Box have some more interesting poses and observed situations - even hand-to-hand fighting. Tamiya are also good but not as good as Dragon although the weapons tend to be sharp.
If you know what kind of scenario you've got in mind I might be able to help further.
This set (although expensive) would be great with your schwimmwagen!

Ps. I wouldn't have given Germany a prayer before the world cup started, but ain't it just like them to prove everybody wrong and be the best team in the tournament!
Come on England! - oh yeah, we're out aren't we...
Nuff about that!
The mut boat is more or less painted! Need to put the wind sheild on and and a few 'pimpy' bits!
First primer, you saw that yesterday. Then Humbrol metalcoat; Steel. That was buffed up a bit then given a bit of hair spray. Vallejo camo olive green #70894 should be the correct green for russian army trucks and tanks. Once that was dry, I wetted it with a cotton bud and water and gently rubbed the green paint off untill the bare metal was showing. Other places it was attacked quite hard to give skuffs, scrapes and scratches.
Heres the photos.
