In the post Christmas sales I picked up the Miniart Dingo Mk II. The boxing I picked up has a captured example on the outside, but also has some Allied markings available as well. The one that caught my eye was for one serving with the Royal Canadian Dragoons, mostly as it has an RAF roundel on the back. It took me a longish time to complete (missing parts, a bout of ill health), and I had a few issues with some of the tiny pieces and the decals lifting, so not my best work. Brush painted with Vallejo Model Colour 70.826 to represent SCC 2, various Vallejo model washes for weathering. Steel guitar string for the wireless aerials. Build thread can be found here: Thanks for looking.
Miniart Dingo Mk II in Canadian Markings
SimonL posted a topic in Work in Progress - ArmourIn the post Christmas sales I picked up the Miniart Dingo Mk II. The boxing I have has a captured example on the outside, but also has some Allied markings available as well. The one that caught my eye was a for one serving with the Royal Canadian Dragoons, mostly as it has an RAF roundel on the back. Now, there appears to be some uncertainty in the actual colour, see the following thread for the discussion: I’ve decided to go with overall SCC2, with with an RAF roundel on the rear deck. The project was delayed due a missing sprues, which in some great customer service the guys at Miniart got to me just a few short weeks before the tragic events of the last fortnight. I hope they are keeping safe . This will be my first attempt at doing an interior on a 1:35 scale kit. So first the box top: Here is the example I am going to build (just imagine it’s brown): Oh oh - photoetch. The printing of roundel looks a bit out of register, so I may use the spare I have. So I started on the cabin interior (cockpit?). Lots of little bits, but went together well. Will need to leave some parts as sub-assemblies to be able to do the detail painting. I managed to use some of the photo etch, however there was some really tiny bits that defeated me. Painting underway, with the main colour being Vallejo 70826 German Camo Medium Brown. Detail painting with various Tamiya and Italeri acrylics.
Canadian Colour Conundrum - Dingo Mk IIIn the post Christmas sales I picked up the Miniart Dingo Mk II. The boxing I have has a captured example on the outside, but also has some Allied markings available as well. The one that caught my eye was a for one serving with the Royal Canadian Dragoons, mostly as it has an RAF roundel on the back. The box didn’t actually have any colour and marking diagrams included, but luckily these are available from the Miniart website. The instructions indicate that the markings are for a vehicle in the UK during spring, 1943. The colour indication is for a green overall colour - which seems unlikely to me. From a previous inquiry concerning Canadian vehicles (for a C15A truck which still resides in my stash), it would seem to me that it is more likely to be SCC4 Stone (especially with the roundel on the back). See below for the previous discussion: My understanding is that the inside of Dingos were painted the same colour as the exterior when delivered. My question is, should I paint the inside SCC2 (which is what I assume it would have been delivered as), or would it have been repainted SCC4? Also - anyone want a couple of German soldier figures
I am really getting addicted to these 1:48 military vehicles. This was just a weekend build. Finished in brush painted Tamiya acrylics. I was going to wait to take some photos outside, but winter weather has really set in. Build thread here. Thanks for looking.
I am getting addicted to the Tamiya 1:48 scale military vehicles. After a couple of tanks, something a little smaller - a Dingo Mk II scout car. Just two sprues of plastic: And just one set of markings: My challenge this time - my first go at painting figures. The kit comes with two figures, and it would seem a shame not to have a go. An morning at the bench, and already have most of the construction complete. Only slightly tricky part, making sure the figures were assembled so that they fitted correctly inside the vehicle. So onto painting. My understanding is that the base colour for British armoured vehicles in NW Europe in 1944 was SCC15 Olive Drab. I used the following recipe: 5 parts Tamiya XF81 + 1 part Tamiya XF58 + 1 part Tamiya XF71 (recipe found in the following conversation: http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/234913729-british-ww2-tank-colors/ ) Painting ensued. I am reasonably pleased with my first go at painting figures. They look a bit stark at the moment, but some washes will tone the look down a bit. Only issue so far are some rather visible injector marks on the open roof part. A bit of Mr Surfacer will deal with that, although it will be a fiddly sanding job later. While I wait for the paint to dry, a got the display base sorted. A cheap picture frame was the base, and then some earth and grass coloured scatter did the trick. A bit simplistic, but bette than nothing.
