Scratch build walker type thingy

Recommended Posts

I got some plasticard for the first time and decided to give it a try. Seen plenty of videos online with walker type stuff? So I'm going to give that ago today? Woke up unusually early so I've been at it since this morning. Got this far so far. Amazed at how quickly it all comes together.

Primer on the body. Just have to figure out how to get some legs on it.

This has been really fun this afternoon. I'll try get some paint on it in a bit. Got to do some housework type stuff for a bit.

Got the chance to air brush it quickly. I put a layer of silver down first, sealed it, then some green with a bit of yellow added.

Chipped the paint back to the silver, sealed again. Will put some orange and browns on in a bit and some rust and oil stains.

Well I added some lighter green, the didn't like it, then messed around some more and ended up with this.

Need to hand paint some extra details. And make some legs. But that's enough for today. I could get used to this plasticard stuff. I've had loads of fun today.

Cool. Thanks very much for the tips and inspiration. I've got some fw190 spare bombs and fuel tanks that will do nicely for the leg armour too.

Don't forget,(like I did a couple of times) the upper leg should be thicker than the lower leg, so that it slips over it at the joint.

I ended up with four leg sections of equal thickness. Doh!

Like the BM decals!
