Working on the back end tonight. 

Mainly the tools and track grousers, the rear lights lens show a milky colour, this is Micro Kristal Klear for the blackout lens, still drying. I have the straps and buckles to paint up 

yet . I also noticed that I forgot the crow bar :frantic:

Cheers Chaps.

 

Very frustrated indeed :o  I had to replace the air valve packing seal on the Iwata TR-1 that I use.

So ordered a new one - £8.99 The old one started to stick so I thought after 12 years best replace it along with the piston. 

 

This turned up today !??!! 

 

Completely empty.  Sent Recorded next day ?  Still sealed, slightly crushed but very much intact - absolutely nothing in the packaging.

Looks like some one has been practicing their magic tricks with that package now you see it now you don’t hope you get it sorted soon. 🤔

Frustrating is one word for it.....

You'd think whoever packed it might have spotted, or in this case not spotted, something!

 

Sure it'll resolve itself with a call.

 

Tools are looking, well, like you've painted them, brilliant!

Cheers chaps,

 

Email sent about my expensive packaging issue ;) Lets see what they say.

 

So a bit more done tonight, more painting on the running gear. Just waiting now to get the lower hull in a satin coat on ready for decals and weathering up. 

 

I coated the hull in some places with some Tamiya gun metal lacquer paints, mainly around the high traffic areas. Added some chipping fluid and then the top layers of OD.

Just had a chipping up session to see how it turned out.

Nice Dan, interesting...the chipping fluid has paid off. First time I ever tried the stuff i put the top coat on and gave it a good 36/48hrs to dry.....  really didn't want to come off...how i laughed...

 

Anyway,  great work.

 

Cheers

Cheers chaps,

 

Glossed and decals added, completely screwed up the front Reg Number though :frantic: Oh well, I'll see if i can cobble together 

one from other sheets that I have.   Once this stage is dry then another blast of gloss and then its's onto weather up the hull.

Really looking the part now Dan, Tamiya decals gone down really well, some people can be critical of them but the I've never had a problem with them.

 

I assume when John refers to the engine stops he's referring to the red buttons by the filler caps?

Learn something everyday..

 

Great work, as if we'd expect anything less! :thumbsup:

I say engine stops, but I'm not sure if they are that or fire extinguishers, or both. Someone more knowledgeable can probably tell us.

Cheers guys :thumbsup:

 

With a bit of a brown wash done.
Some subtle shadows around the turret ring and the drivers hatches, the rear deck louvres have just started to pop now.
Mig Ammo brown wash for dark yellow German vehicles used with mineral thinners.
Chuffed that the kit supplied decals have settled down well with no slivering.
