    Cracking work, lovely finish. I fairly recently finished its predecessor, the early 80's moulding - which was okay but yours is fab!

    Looks great! I've been inside the one at Bovington and clambered about on top, it really is a big brute!
  3. F-104G Marineflieger

    It looks great yes, so I'm determined to do the best I can. A bit more practice first I think!

    Thanks Steve - one for the techniques toolbox.

    Spot on! Looks damn near perfect. I've got the Hasegawa F104C that I'm building up the courage to start.

    Cheers Steve - will bear that in mind for next time.

    Thanks Rog. This was the Italeri boxing I did - I was well impressed by the quality of the moulding and the engineering from the original Esci parts. Good tip for the white glue - I'll maybe try that next time. I'd be keen to do the other bike models as well - it's a lovely scale to work in.

    Thanks Stesca - 100% natural wear on the seat (and the leather on the helmet) - the horrible vinyl material for the seat, chain and helmet strap wouldn't take paint properly. It started to rub off as soon as I'd sprayed it. Luckily it looked pretty good so I put them aside and didn't do anything else to them - a happy accident!

    You'll be lucky Harley John! I think the 1:1 scale is likely to be static and trailered to shows. 😊

    Cheers Devo!

    I don't know...you wait 4 years for an RFI from ModelMonkey then two come along practically at once... This is the original (1976!) boxing of the venerable Tomy/Peerless Max Raupenschlepper Ost (RSO/01). I'd done the Italeri boxing of this about 20 years ago but had abandoned the nearly completed model on the shelf of doom after I couldn't persuade the included super-springy rubber tracks to behave. I then lost it when I moved out of my parent's house. I looked for years for another one - unwilling (as a Scotsman) to pay for the new Dragon boxing... I found the original boxing at the Scottish Champs in Perth this April and was delighted to find that the tracks were usable, the decals were still good and best of all there was a bonus Nebelwerfer in the box. There was also a driver , but he was about 25% overscale. Really enjoyed the build - along with my vintage Esci Triumph motorbike - it's a pretty good kit and was challenge free. I now just need to make/buy a load of stowage for the back. Built 100% OOB. On with the pics!
