1/72 Type 15 RADAR set

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

My current WIP in amongst my figure painting is this.....

 

Austin K6 Type15 RADAR dish, this will eventually end up on a base with the 2 Austin K6 Receiver and Transmitter trucks, plus another K6 with 50Kv Generator set to power it all.

 

For now just the dish is on the go.....

Hi all,

 

 

Poured the 3 K6 chassis' I'll need to build the Transmitter, Receiver and Geny trucks this weekend, now though I need to get on with the figures I'm in the middle of painting now though for fear of getting distracted and not getting them done (Pics in the appropriate section if anyone cares).

 

These are a fast build, single pour kit that I've been working on so I'm not constantly just building up multi part chassis kits, ( the kits for the K6 I used to sell used to be 18 parts with a full engine, looked awesome but took for ever to build) , and I can then get on with the fun bit faster 😉

And here are the new Austin K6 quick pour 1 piece kits I've designed to speed up the process of making the K6 variants.....

Yarp, the K6 kit I used to sell was 15+ parts in total on 5 or more sprue blocks, very detailed including full engine, carb and manifolds, separate bonnet, interior and cab..... took an age to assemble. Now I don't sell kits anymore, its just for me and working on the "3 foot rule" made this one piece kit, takes me about 10 minutes to make and then I'm on to building its back body 😉

These little trucks look reeeeally nice. Too bad you don't sell anymore 🙂

With the finishing up of the dish its now on to the rest of the set...... The Transmitter, the Receiver and the Generator trucks.

 

Here I have finished the prep work on the 3 chassis ready for their bodies to be made. 

 

(I'm also still trying to find a good universal scale that's not to physically big, as I had complaints an age ago about using a penny as not everyone knows/uses the queens currency, a scale rule is difficult to see in photographs, and not everyone knows how big 1/72 scale is by just saying it in a post...... So, I figure a lighter must be fairly common world wide!?)
