Yeah, Kerry, I did load up on Tamiya Olive Drab jars in the mean time... I have about 4 large ones now. Today you see an update about the hatches and the crane locks. The mg-ring is not very correct in the details, but with some etching tool tricks this can be repaired. The locks for the cranes have to be repositioned and replaced with a composite profile I made out of an ABS H-profile with two ribbons glued in it. This makes the right T-section in the locks, of which you need 32. Dragon only does a square section and Voyager tries to be helpful but in this case they botched it, making the locks too hollow. A pain was the relocation of all locator holes in the fenders. All had to be redrawn from the pictures, drilled 1mm deep and then tediously squared off with a scalpel. Next will come the cranes, but I think these too will be oversize.

The cranes on the Dragon T28 have indeed some errors, but with the Voyager upgrade and some scratch parts they can be upgraded such that they become fully operational. Swinging the tumbler makes the pinwheel go round one tooth. I had to attach the Voyager pinwheel to the plastic wheel for its thickness and I had to hollow out the whole crane structure to get something like on the pictures of Allied-Axis. I placed the cranes in the front position, but this still shows a bit of the torsion in the fenders. With the gun installed, I hope the skewed position will not be that evident. The Voyager toolboxes were a nicer version of the Dragon ones, so they too had to be decreased in size to fit. Still working on that.

And the fully operational engine goes in soon. ? 🙂 🙂 🙂
Great attention to detail Steven. 👍
You mentioned the tool boxes too I see. That makes me wonder if the 'Voyager' 1/35 scale German tool box with spanners would be suitable too. ?

Thanks Kerry. The T28 has two toolboxes for the regular tools hidden inside its track sponsons, that were rediscovered intact during the recent restoring phase. I don't know what exactly would be inside the PE boxes.

Making the spare tracks for the left side of the armor. So I had to correct the width again for 12 plastic track pads. I found out the DS tracks are a bit more brittle, they broke at a weak point. Maybe because of the glue content.

I started on the Saladin today, with the hull parts and some of the MR resin parts for the GB version. I had loved to add the promising Voyager PE set, but it seems arrested in development. So I acquired only the light set and the DEF wheels.

Kerry COX
An almost forgotten but effective member of the wheeled armour family that I remember seeing at Puckapunyal in Australia in the early 60's, where it was part of the 4/19 Prince of Wales Light Horse Regiment. Looking forward to your build and progress. 👍 :)
30. March, 21:09
Steven Van Dyck
Thanks for the appraisal, Kerry. I read that it even stayed part of the regiment after the vehicles were decommissioned, the turrets were just recycled on M113's. Today I compared the kit wheels to the DEF models ones. In one picture you can see that actually both resemble different patterns, with the kit wheel as the classical type and the DEF wheel as the later replacement type. So those of you who want to depict an early ante-BRD Saladin, you can't use the resinkit. But it does mean that I can go for an exotic camo scheme. A nice scale plan can be found at https://weaponsandwarfare.com/2020/09/page/10/

Looks very nice!
31. March, 22:54
Steven Van Dyck
Thanks, Tini! I used a spare PE part from my Kondensator project to improve on the single piece of Dragon PE that was in the box. I also added some MR parts.

I had to saw a millimeter from the axle stubs to get the DEF models wheels to fit. I also scratched the license plate holder aft to make it look slimmer. This was done by drilling, scribing and ripping a brass plate and then bending it like on the WWP picture. I also replaced the exhaust brackets.
25. April, 19:21
Tini Hendriks
I think you liked building it very much. So much joy in such a small afv. 👍🏼
25. April, 19:33
Steven Van Dyck
It continues to be funny because I scratched some parts I do not need. These are already provided with the Voyager kit. I did add all the lights on the hull.

Another fav of mine.
Geez, light years away from the old Tamiya kit.

A little gem. And suddenly I remembered, I had a Matchbox Saladin in the sixties ☺️👍🏼

I stumbled on this series quite late last year, but I was hooked and wanted to build the sinister looking Raider model in 1/32 with lighting. Not easy to find, but I won one in an auction for only $25. Then I acquired the Green Stuff LEDs and a cheap PCB to make the roving eye.

Welcome, a video of the first roving eye experiments can be seen on Youtube Video. It's not yet very steady, I hope this is because the contacts are not all soldered. Sadly there is no possibility of including this module inside the model, so there will have to be a stand with a pipe containing at least 11 wires in it, 14 if I include thrusters. But this is no drama as such a large model needs a firm base to stand on.

I know that that is a possibility, but as long as it's only letters in 2 colors, I can manage it. The Judy part will be tedious however, and there are two fragile antennas nearby.

Good luck. Eager to see how this dio turns out.
9. May, 10:50
Steven Van Dyck
OK, Gary, I just uploaded some new shots of the plastering session I did today. I also made a Wall with the Green Stuff Dutch Bricks 15mm seal. Works very good on clay. The trees I still kept apart from the base to be able to paint the road.
9. May, 21:53
Steven Van Dyck
The lettering on Judy is done. It was indeed tedious to cut but I think it turned out well. I also received the Schwimmwagen extras today and immediately started the build with some Aber interior parts.
12. May, 23:15

Some dry-fitting of the Blackdog parts and a lot of tiny Aber PE particles later...
