I wonder what Manfred would think of the metallic duco?
I'm sure he'd love it!! - Hey, there's enough reason to paint all you German armour & aircraft in metallic finishes!!!!! - hmmm...... Tiger I in Metallic Green - Wow!!

Does anyone have any tips for the resin novice for these "thepartsbox" models - as they are completely devoid of instructions!! I have to complete this by start of November.
This went very badly - broke a sail when trying to get it to stretch to the required slot......now sitting on the shelf of doom!!!

Oh cool! A Metal Earth Speeder Bike? Count me in!
I am also curious 🙂
Looks interesting I'm in!
me too. it looks really good so far.
This is enjoyable to watch
A few more photos added - the end is in sight!!!
and thanks for all your comments!!
All these different surfaces and colours make this PE only kit look so great. First metal kit that really looks interesting to me.
Now finished - more photos & notes to add.....soon
Nice build, ❤️️ it
Having seen you build a metal earth kit has me wondering If I would even have the patience to try one!
Hi JD, I find them a good test of my patience & concentration - I should add that I ALWAYS use 2.5X magnifier eyewear!! I've done about a dozen of them now - I think I'm a bit hooked. Just picked up the pre-coloured Red Baron Fokker Triplane. That should be fun!!
PLUS a big thanks to everyone else for you comments & likes!!

Count me in!
Watching and learning Roger. Now you've retired to spend more time modelling, will you feel compelled to also build Elvis' companion Memphis - fixing these couple of minor errors ?!!?
Nice building report, i will stay tuned 🙂
I have been waiting for LoneStar to do their resin conversion for this. Didnt know Metal Earth had one. Watching!
They are seriously upping the ante with their metal kits. Never seen one in this complexity.
Have to agree with you on that, Alexander. Following the instructions are absolutely essential. (although careful recovery is possible!!)
Congratulations to that great result 🙂 Good job 👍
Nice Result. If you are looking for another challenge with these kinds of "puzzles" I can recommend the aircraft carriers and other big ships.
I like it! Well done!
A Big Hunk O'Love for this 👍 My eyesight wouldn't stand to even attempting that kit! Highly impressed 🙂

Very Nice, how long does is take?
Wow, Metal Earth kits are getting more sophisticated all the time..will you be painting it?
Time: about 8 hours for that as it's a two-sheet model
Painting: That's what I'm avoiding........ and I think it would be too hard to get yellow on everything once completed. As for painting then assembling, I guess that would be possible, but handling it during assembly would then be a problem. I'm not yet proficient with an airbrush to try either approach. I'd be worried about losing detail too.

how is the build? I still build some of the model earth models, but not in scale 1:112, semse like it is really tiny and hard to handle....
Hi Florian, only done 3 steps so far, and it is pretty small, but it's such an iconic chopper with the Australian bushfires. - I think it will test me - this is around the 15th MetalEarth I've done....a little hooked!! will create an album and post pics as I go... another buddy of mine has just bought it too....
Hi Roger, yeah i can imagine. I was having a look for it and found it on eBay, bout 30 bucks is a bit to mich, waiting for it a bit more. Can't wait to see pictures from your model.
