The resin printer is fantastic for adding details! Redid the rear light clusters & mud guards, adding reflectors, blackouts, fastex clips, bolts, & power outlet.

Used the excuse of see how the non-skid would turn out to do a paint test using the SMS camouflage colours.

I am really enjoying following your thread. It’s just hard to believe it’s all done from scratch. Beautiful work 👍

Thanks @vytautas - CAD makes this more a “design & print your own model”. Certainly a lot of work, and you can’t blame a manufacturer for bad design!

 

Interior painting has commenced, once again using SMS paints & custom decals for the seat cushions. Not a lot will be seen, so there’s not much more to do before it’s completed.

Seat backs will be aligned & glued prior to sealing up the hull.

Need to repaint the interior of the air sentry hatches as they’re also insulated.

Should be able to finish the interior by the end of the weekend.

Excellent work  - really top notch  workmanship.

 

Erk.

 Thanks, Erk. I appreciate the kind words. This’ll definitely be a three footer!

 

The arrival of SMS paint’s CARC sand allowed another series of quick wins on the “how will it look” phase.

So, the DUKE ECM antennas & mounts, plus the EOS R-400 remote (protected) weapon station & screen (on the dash) got an initial coat.

Then it was the turn of the satcom x-wing antenna & the base & bracket for the blue force tracker (or MT2011, as it’s known formally).

Sealed the upper & lower hull. Blocked out the RHS camouflage. Starting to look more like a Bushmaster :)

Painted up the LHS and took some pics against a higher-contrast background.

Installed & painted the suspension. I had printed new, one-piece versions on the resin printer, but wasn’t happy trusting the interface between the hull and the transmission to CA
 

Front:

Overall profile views with the wheels dry fitted, showing how little of the suspension is visible!

Appreciated, Vytautas. 
 

Lots of time spent bringing it all together. As always, the last bits before mat coating seem to take the longest.

Finished the weekend with a quick test fit of the truck in the display cabinet.

Will be a tight fit, height-wise, but will squeeze in.

Looks good in there Greg, so what is next? Something by Rheinmetall?

Thanks Ray.

 

Probably finish the M1 & my M113. Considering an AS1. On the fence about Boxer, tbh
