Stephan Ryll Nice start on that last gunfighter
8. July at 18:18:17
Daniel yep, I'll take a seat here
8. July at 18:36:14
Steven Van Dyck Take all the seats you want, people, the show is still running. Today the white primer went over the fuselage. It appears the jet exhausts fits snugly on the Tamiya turntable shaft. Primer used is a Rust-oleum rattle-can.
@Holger: no, it's ex-Hasegawa.
8. July at 19:02:42
Steven Van Dyck The yellow lines have been painted on the canopy (Eduard wanted these to be Flesh, I doubted about that) and then I started to put some dust on the panellines, followed by some post-shading.
15. July at 21:45:19
Steven Van Dyck The Light Gull grey and the shadows are sprayed on. Masking was not so hard, but I used pieces of paper to cut back on tape.
18. July at 22:04:52
Clifford Keesler Looking very nice indeed.
18. July at 22:27:53
Slavo Hazucha The shading looks excellent - good idea to use the brown-ish color for pre shading, the blend with the grey creates a really great outcome. Good show so far! :)

Urban Gardini Somehow I've missed this one but now I'm in the crowd...

Steven Van Dyck The weathering of the hull is in progress. I used a Humbrol light grey enamel wash and then a thinned sludgewash for oily grime.
5. July at 21:32:46
Thomas Bischoff comes along very nicely!
6. July at 06:55:21
Slavo Hazucha I missed this build so far, so much amazing stuff... I don't know if I have seen 1:350 planes with modeled cockpits before :) Joining late, but happy to follow the last stages!
6. July at 07:10:50
Steven Van Dyck Thanks, Thomas and Slavo. Some rust is added now, using red and yellow enamel paint and some grey acrylic for the chips.
7. July at 10:25:36
Hans Robben Beauty!
7. July at 10:49:56
Steven Van Dyck Thanks, Hans! Today, the ship is screwed to the diorama. This was better than glueing, because the hull didn't align at the extremities, being slightly warped up because of the side wall tension. I came up with the idea to put a Parker screw on both ends. Even then I had to remove a large part of the internal joint in the lower hull, and I had to eventually add a third screw to the extreme aft, very tightly seated. Now the ship sits perfectly level with virtually no seam, visible on only the last seven pics (compare to the middle series). This came at the cost of some damage to the bow barbette, which will be repaired.
10. July at 22:51:52
Steven Van Dyck Thanks, Hans! I've been busy fixing the floater nets, adding some silicon waves and then using the AK Water Foam. This is a thick acrylic paint that can be pasted on for wave tops or thinned and painted on as spray. But it smells a bit sour.
14. July at 20:04:19
Steven Van Dyck Princeton's showcase has arrived and it's a good fit. I will have to add a little to the base. At the same time, some tracklinks had been delivered by the mailman. You can guess how I'm in heaven.

Steven Van Dyck The figures are assembled, but one had such a small face I replaced it with a German soldier that got a Hornet head. Some parts didn't fit as well, but I made them. There are still 2 mg's.
3. March at 23:25:51
Steven Van Dyck Some of the Voyager hatch hinge halves just don't extend far enough to go around the pin. I replaced these parts with Albion Alloys 0.6mm tubing.
30. March at 23:19:11
Steven Van Dyck Even more hatches and hinges were produced.
27. April at 22:56:14
Rui S looking great
28. April at 15:56:46
Ingo F Looks very good so far. I will take a seat.
28. April at 17:48:45
Steven Van Dyck Voyager has got the aft fender plates wrong, these are for BTR-70. Luckily Trumpeter has them right. Even then, bending on the kit bend tool is not enough, because PE always reverts a bit. A drill can correct this problem.
9. June at 21:15:54
Steven Van Dyck I had to add an extra facet to the Trumpeter hull, that has still the BTR-60 configuration on the driver lookout position. It's unlucky that I found this out so late, so I can't finish the inside paint, but this part would be concealed by the turret anyway.
15. June at 22:30:19
Steven Van Dyck The wheels are fixed temporarily. I added an extra viewing glass protection that I saw on pictures. The last picture is with the crew, construction is almost done now.

Steven Van Dyck Thanks for your attenton! I started to build the outriggers, made with square ABS tube and printed parts. I did discover a discrepancy in the proposed width of the tube, it seems to have been adapted so both outriggers can be at the same width. This was not the case. I will also replace the C-beams for the counterweights with Evergreen, because they are not completely cast off and obviously made out of Evergreen masters.
16. May at 21:25:51
Peter Hardy I get nervous when I see a razor saw in the background!!
17. May at 01:39:38
Lenny V Sweet!! This one has bin on my building bucket list for years. Will be following with great interest. Good luck with the build Steven.
19. May at 19:48:09
Steven Van Dyck I understand it is a daunting kit. I hope I get it right... Yesterday I was on a running Famo at Militracks, so I took some reference pics of the cab inside also.

Steven Van Dyck For a walkaround on this great event, check out my topic at https://modelbrouwers.nl/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=23&t=52046 (Dutch language). I bought the AFV M35A1 for 40 euros with 5 Hobbyfan figures in it, and I bought this Panzer 1 tracklink. [img1]

20. May at 19:14:47
Lenny V Haha I was at militracks saturday drooling over that sd.kfz. 11 late with holzfahrerhouse and the maultiers, don't know why but something in that sd.kfz. 11 thing just grabs me. Especially the sound of its ratteling track's (they should make meditational music out of that). I pray they will some day restore the sd.kfz. 9/2 from the Becker collection and take it to militracks, that would be some sight to see it driving through the Overloon woods.

I also checked the tracks for sale but spend my money on an ADV kit and a book about K5(e), but above all the weight of the thing and explaining yet another "dirty rusty thing" I'n the house kept me from it. But as I see yours I already regret it, another reason to go next year.
20. May at 21:30:41
Steven Van Dyck Thanks for the nice comments. I bent some replacement Evergreen profiles and added the mudguards. It's not so clear how to cut these from the sprue.

Steven Van Dyck The base for the diorama is now worked out and the tracks and spare chains are fixed to the tank. Without the rotor it looks a bit like the mantis I bought last weekend.
28. May at 22:33:02
Peter Hardy That's not a crab! Crabs are flat and taste good!
28. May at 23:43:15
Bob Hall I'm With Peter on this one ! Not Flat, Doesn't look tasty ! LOL !
29. May at 01:08:47
Steven Van Dyck I finished the Crab on friday. A few hours later it entered the contest at BSMC, but today it proved unlucky. Next time better, that will probably be at KMK. I adorned the wooden base with pictures of the Overloon War Museum example. I also put a dusty spray over the front of the tank, which I would find normal for the amount of soil it throws up. It probably cost me some points compared to all those colorful camos on the table, so be it.
2. June at 20:33:25
Lenny V Looks stunning Steven! I admire your patience, it really shows in the finished model.
2. June at 20:57:43
