It's the kit... As WhiteGlint, I am working on the 72nd kit, whose basic engineering was used in 48th scale kit and I see the same problems. My intakes look hideous so I will just finish it without much of a fuss.

Yes, a lot of Perfect Plastic Putty to remedy this; the fuselage (front to wings comparison) is also a little crooked, but only I can see it! 🙂

Thank you @WhiteGlint - the dirty part will come after, with some restrained weathering made with oils

Ohoh... never seen the rubber tracks on a tank.....do yourself a favour. Place these tracks where they should belong to... into the trash bin.
Diese Vinylketten sehen nicht gut aus...ansonsten man ist gespannt auf den Fortschritt
6. February, 16:45
As written in the Image captions: DS Tracks are fine for holding the roadwheels on, they get replaced with 3D Printed ones.
Entschuldige, verstehst ja Deutsch ; ) Ich drucke mir meine Ketten selbst, hab bisher ca 15 verschiedene Einzelgliedketten konstruiert und gedruckt, geht prima...

14. February, 10:40
@Achim Ribbe Ich nutze den Photon S und Sonic Mini 4k. Dein Dioramabau mittles Resindruck ist auch etwas neues für mich. Solltest mal Ketten brauchen, scheibst mich einfach an, die vom Panther sind mittlerweile durchentwickelt und schauen nochmal nen ticken besser aus. Fühe (Splint und Ring am Bolzen, mittlere (Ronde und Splint am Bolzen) und Späte (Mischung aus Mittleren Ausf. D und frühen Ausf. A Ketten) habe ich jetzt schon erfolgreich verbaut.

I made a start with a new dio: a French St. Chaumont tank resting next to a ruined factory with its crew. While an old fashioned Belgian dog cart passes by. Old meets new. Hence the name. A start has been made with the factory and the tank has been build so far that it is ready to receive primer...

Interesting project.

28. August, 19:26
Erwin Leetink
You are too kind...
I also started the painting of the first figure.
The Belgians used a specific kind of breed to pull their carts : the Belgian Mastiff. It has been extinct for quite some time, but by careful breeding, they managed to reinstate it. Though there are a lot of variations in colors, I tried to represent the general looks with the black snout and mask, as good as I can…
28. August, 19:27
Erwin Leetink
And the second dog, although a bit meager I painted it like a old British sheepdog
28. August, 19:28

Good job so far, i like all the improvements you've done and the chipping effects looks even nice 👍
26. September, 06:01
Thank guys, @Zach Wilson, @Oleg Smilyk, @Simon Nagorsnik.

So, in conclusion,
A scaled-down bronco kit to me, very crisp detail and minor issues here and there.
- Searchlight (Early/late derivation)
- 'The aiming device?' [: in front of the commander cupola] (Incorrect folding indication)
- Spare tracks (Simplified/incorrect teething) [: Nowhere to hide, correction is almost a must]
- Rare fenders (Interfering with tracks) [: As there's no stopper or whatsoever for driving wheels, to set the center of the entire track assembly all in line with each other, the end tip could end up being too wide, which leads to the interference. A bit of sanding will do as well I suppose. I just cut the retaining bolts of the track.]
- 'Mysterious square detail' at the back of the storage box (Irish post-war units only it seems, red it from: https://forums.kitmaker.net/t/a34-comet-cruiser-tank-vespid-kit-build/1442/13 )
- Canvas fixing points (WWII/post-war derivation)

Thinking of figures and packages, but not for today. Thank you all for watching.
28. September, 14:58

Without photo captions it's difficult to understand what you're doing. Did you recast the primary hull in translucent resin for lighting? Trying to figure out what's going on in photos 1 and 3.
28. September, 04:47
Jay T
The yellow stuff is an RTV rubber. I'm making a surface mold of the "plain" parts of the saucer and edge, so I can cast copies and fill in the missing sectors left when the Ent-B's second set of impulse engine are removed.
28. September, 15:32
Ah, so you're converting the 1:2500 B into an Excelsior. Got it - cool idea. Secondary hull should be fun.

Got to love those Airfix vehicles! 👍
28. September, 00:41
Thank you! 🙂
I like that they were 1:72 back then - actually fitting the planes, most I can find now is 1:78 - fitting model trains (scale H0 of I remember correctly?)
28. September, 06:33
Alex K
Well, these Airfix vehicles are actually in 1:76, but the general consensus is that there is no problem for them being displayed next to 1:72 aircraft - the difference is minimal. On the other hand, you are right, HO scale for trains is 1:87, which is significantly smaller. Keep it up! 👍

Thanks, István! No this varnish (ALC600) is not really odorless. But it is acrylic, so it's no where near as strong or as toxic as the lacquer varnishes by Alclad.

Thanks for the comment, John, and the likes, gentlemen - I'm glad you found the idea interesting! Perhaps a better modeler than me could make something really good out of it - maybe in 1:35...
12. September, 19:06
A great idea! Love it

Thanks again, gentlemen - Jørgen, Bruce, Villiers, I feel a bit awkward with this thing and terrible pics appearing again in the newsfeed - but I'm glad the whole idea caught your eye - cheers, mates!

😄 My turn to say wow - thank you Łukasz, I hadn't seen those extra 3 pics!!! And now, for anyone interested, we have definitive markings for at least one seep: 4501-BA8 = NICE 956 = Arromanches I, while Arromanches IV = 3499-BA8...

Neil .I just wanted a different paint style.. though I lost my pre shade ..hence the practice..you on the other hand nailed it .
21. September, 04:20
Hi Flight Line & John, thanks very much for your comments. John looking forward to your version very much also! 👍 🙂
21. September, 07:58
Hi Pete, think you're being a bit hard on yourself there - looks great to me! 👍 I think I've done my usual and probably over-weathered this build now - it's nearly finished. But hey if something's gonna look worn. Then a Stuka must be a candidate! 🙂

Agreed ..I do like the look of the German aircraft. And they do have some funky paint scheme's .

Thanks mates for all the nice comments and likes. I really enjoyed the painting on this kit even though the construction was a bit of a battle.

Poor Semyon Lavochkin fell oit of favour in Moscow, and his OKB relegated to working on air to air missiles whilst contemporary MiG OKB were flattered by the politburo; even Yakovlev were eclipsed. Lavochkin's jet Anaconda was his last hurrah.

This La looks stunning: a nice tribute to a half forgotten aero designer. Congrats.

Excellent work on the surface treatment of the model 👍.

This set is good as a teaching aid. But this kit is not suitable for building a model that corresponds to reality. The set has many shape errors and their repair is very laborious. For example, the bow is very short and has a bad shape, the glass cover of the cockpit is too wide and the windshield has a completely different shape, the centerplane is also inaccurate in shape ... you know for sure. But as you write, this kit is good as an aid to trying different procedures when building a model 🙂 🙂
Také mám rád tyto staré stavebnice. I really enjoy working on their modifications. Some of my model modifications are almost scratch building. So I know very well what it's like to build a nice model from an old kit. I wish you a lot of patience and a lot of fun building other models. 🙂
22. August, 10:54
Hi Ludvik, Thanks very much for your comments 🙂

I agree, the kit being a vintage one and by this manufacturer is not particularly accurate. Especially when accuracy is compared to the modern kits that are available. However, a vintage build brings it's own complications and challenges in attempting to build something comparable to the more modern kits in look and that is my aim. 🙂

I enjoy the surface treatment part of a build the most. As for me modelling is more about the finish than the build/construction, as my bio says - call my efforts artistic interpretations of the real thing. I wouldn't attempt what many of these guys can do, it's truly wonderous what they can build.

Best to you also Ludvik 🙂 👍

Hello scalemates,

I wonder if/how it is possible to attach an accessory such as a piece of ordinance on a kit.
