MiniArt 1/35 T-54-2 1949 full interior


Recommended Posts

if I thought I was mad doing the Wespe with a load of add-on PE and tracks, I am now starting this.... full interior T54-2 1949... I hope to be able to do it justice, some of the other interior builds I have seen is what are driving me on....

 

so far I have just opened the box and panicked... need to label all the sprues I guess before starting

Looks promising. Will be sure following this one.

 

Don't worry about the number of sprues - their number will go down fast.

Majority of the manufacturers, I believe, put most of the similar subbuild details on the same sprue,

so mainly you'll be dealing with a 2 or 3 sprues at the time.

unfortunately Miniart are not "most" manufacturers. they tend to spread there stuff around sprues!!

I have this one in the pile of “I’d love to start this kit, but have too many that need to get finished first”.  O’ll definitely be watching with interest!

And I love Miniart kits, but they certainly don’t follow the subassembly rule with sprues!  I’ve been working on a T-34/85 for months longer than I normally would because you have ti have ALL

of the sprues handy and I don’t have the available space on a regular enough basis.

Hi Rob
Looks good! The engine in the tank is the most beautiful detail for me. Are you planning to leave the hatches open?

the modular nature is taking shape. I am adding parts with same colour to main bits, then will paint other parts on the sprue before attaching... so need to work out how to pay 8,345 shells (or however many).... 

 

the air pump(?) pipes broke in to multiple parts but are attached and hopefully wont be too visible

Looking really good Rob, engine looks great and a good start to the baseplate, this looks to be a cracking model, looking forward to seeing more...

progress...all still dry fitted. So far so good, just a couple of breaks but they are OK once in situ.... really need to start painting - going to prime all grey, airbursh the large parts (sides/bulkheads/engine/floor) an dthen brush paint the detail...

That seems to be a MiniArt tradition from my experience. 

 

Courage mon brave!

havent forgotten this build. I might be able to prime it over the bank holiday weekend I will have to see. At the very least I have started marking up the priming scheme I need (combination of black for darker colours and grey for the white)

Hi, Rob

I don’t know what paint you use, but I can recommend Mr.Metal Color series metallizers. I like them very much, I didn’t notice any flaws. I really like the fact that they are buffed. And they suitable for brush.
Here is Pak40 ammo painted with that paint:
