A nice looking kit Monica, although you'll have to restrain your heavy weathering on this one! ;)

well an update on this one,have the crocodile together, 9_9


some parts were a tad bit fiddly,but no major problems,but all in all,a nice build,


next will be the ase coat then,start on my camo,and yes there will be a surprise,as we jump 70 yrs forwards to modern day,


I know maybe some think you should not do,but the Rission,did have a lot of surplus after the war,and things are always found in sheds,


and so on, :D


but It will all tie together,as what setting I,m put it in, o.O


well I do hope you like my idea,time for a wee kip, :D

Monica, how do your WIP threads go from sprue shots to the built model??  O.o  I think you've got some kind of stasis field around your workbench!


That camo scheme you're attempting would really have been easier if you'd masked off the colours, rather than doing it freehand. But I'm sure you'll turn a dogs dinner into the dogs danglies  :P


Nice toenail varnish btw ;)

I dont think it looks too bad, many times camo schemes have soft edges especially in modern vehicles that get re-painted quite often.

I'm not saying it's bad Bob, just that the real life pics Monica posted clearly show a hard-edged pattern.

You beat me to it Patrick. It would be nice Monica if you could include some shots of the actual build. It is all part of the process of a group build. I'm not saying you should take a photo of every single part you glue together, but a few more inbetween shots would be interesting. 
You are new to the GB's so still learning the ropes. I have been into the GB's from the start and even now I forget to take them. I know we all get tied up in the moment so dont be sad about it.

0o,I get it so next time more in between shots,at different stages,it was one of these build,that you kind of had to study the instruction,s a lot so ,the last thing was,


taking a pic after ever other part if you ,know what I mean,but next time,will do, :D

I did try to use some type of masking,as you can see from the pic,but it did,work in away and other ways no,as its got all bits and bob,s that wont,let it sit, O.o


so what I will do is get some,tack,and do ,repair bits,


and I was just having trouble with my paints as well,even there model air,there just being painful to use, :$


glad you like the nail paint,do try to keep it on my finger nails as wel,but have that very wreathed look, ;)
