Looking very business like now Ivan the fascine and blade are bringing this to life!

 

    Stay safe            Roger

Thanks Roger I’ve got the Full Width Mine Plough to go on as well but I’ll do that as a separate build I reckon😀

Thanks Pete I have seen those videos,beasts aren’t they? If you haven’t found War Machine TV on YouTube it’s well worth it for British kit roaming Salisbury plain👍

Hi guys,this is going slowly now,all the rams are on and despite thinking I could have them moveable I have failed🙁ithe arms were far to loose and flopping all over the place and just crying out to break! As I’ve said before it is VERY brittle and I’ve broken a set of pipes cleaning them up so out with the card and wire! Half done,time for a break😀

the kit part is by the cupola so you can see the problem ,cheers

This is turning into an impressive model and I'm sure you will sort the plumbing problem, the light at the end of the tunnel is gradually getting brighter!

Hi, a update😉 paint is on although it will need another wash,top hoses done I’ve made my own couplings as the kit ones are brilliant it’s just I couldn’t see them properly when they come off the block😳

Kind words indeed thank you👍 however the quality of this kit is outstanding (albeit expensive).as I’ve said the only issue I’ve had is it is probably a bit over engineered with some of the small parts.

At last was able to do a bit of hose porn today that’s it done just needs touched up when it all dries😀

It's a Beast - Lovely work

Ivan - out of curiosity what green paint are you using?

Rob

Thanks Rob just some more fiddly bits now👍

Hataka IRR green is the colour although I’m not that satisfied with it it seems a bit too dark and then in another light it’s ok🙄😂
