This is certainly the smallest armour model I've built to date, and probably one of the smallest I've done in any genre. The FT 75 is an updated version of Flyhawk's original FT 17 kit, which was released a few years ago.

The 75 was an upgunned  development of the FT 17, with a 75mm Blockhaus Schneider gun in place of the original 37mm, and a fixed casemate replacing the 17's turret.

The kit is one of the best available in braille scale, with very nice detailing, and clever engineering which make assembly and painting very straight forward. For the most part it was finished OOB, with the only additions being the tarp and chain on the rear tail. The painting was a mix of acrylics and lacquers and, as a bit of an experiment, the weathering was done entirely with acrylics.

The build can be found here

Simply wonderful build again Andy, the shot of it balanced on your finger is brilliant!

 

Certainly one of the best braille scale models I've ever seen! :thumbsup:

That's probably the fastest wip that I've ever seen on here, but the speed of the build doesn't detract from the quality of the finish. Superb.

It's amazing, Andy.

 

When you see the photo of the model above your finger is when you are really aware of its size and the impressive and tiny work that you have done with weathering.

 

It is a small / great masterpiece.

 

Regards.

Hi Andy,

This is such a clean model you have built there and the painting is phantastic, perfect! You would expect a much bigger model when you only see the model without your hand holding it. 

Best,

Mark

I loved seeing this pop up almost fully-formed on Flickr, such a tiny jewel of a thing. I'm off to read about the weathering now having done some experiments in that direction recently.

 

Cheers,

 

Will
