Hi All,

 

A bit of late start, but I think I'll have just enough time to finish.

... and I've got these figures to go with it.

Hi Dave. It will be interesting to see this going together to compare it with the Takom version I still need to finish. :popcorn:

Kind regards,

Stix

Hi All

 

Most of the building is done now.

The crew compartment gave me some problems - but I've not read of it causing problems for anybody else, so it must just be me.

Hi All,

 

Got some paint on it now.

The German uniforms don't look quite so blue in reality - it's Ocean Grey - but if anybody has a better match for german uniforms please let me know.  I'll make them less shiny as well.

The colour you want for the German uniforms is Feldgrau, which has a greenish tint , a number of paint ranges carry this colour.

Hi Andwil,

 

Thanks for the info.  I've repainted the uniforms and I think they better now.

Hi All,

 

I've added the tracks and decals.

I hand painted the id stripes to make them look a little crude.

 

Next is going to be weathering which I'm not too good at, but a WWI tank needs to look covered in muck so I'll need to try a few new things.

Looking good! I'm building the same tank on 'the other forum' in the WW1 group build, I also had a few issues with the crew compartment, so maybe we're both stupid?? 🤣 I really didn't enjoy bending the parts......

Hi All

 

Last update before the eleventh.

I still have quite a bit to do the figures - not least how to stick them to the base, and bit of tidying up to the base and the tank.

 

Dave.
