Paul
following, this kit is high on my todo list
22. October, 18:59
Steven Van Dyck
Welcome Paul. The interior of the elevator well is detailed with counterweights and guide rails. Then it is primered grey.
24. October, 00:17
Sven Schönyan
And looks very good! Do you know this book:

https://christian-schmidt.co..d=rp1fen0q26lr9q5vsb81eefsq0

There is a lot of detail information provided.
24. October, 07:07
Steven Van Dyck
Thanks, Paul. I hadn't seen the book, this is also my first IJN ship.

David Taylor
May I take a seat.
24. October, 15:59
Steven Van Dyck
Welcome, David. Yesterday I painted the outline of the plane positions inside both hangar decks. I decided the easiest way was to rescale the Morskie plans from 1/400 to 1/350 (114%) and to make a paper cutout mask. Because I only trimmed 3 paper planes, painting had to be interrupted to mask off every plane position.
19. November, 22:32
Steven Van Dyck
I removed all plastic detail from the Fujimi deck and started to construct the PE replacement parts. Most of these girders are sharp as airbrush needles, but sturdy enough to deburr. The last picture shows a problem in the construction that will have to be solved with a Dremel polishing stone. Strange how these support triangles weren't filleted, they interfere with the deck droop.
22. November, 19:51
Steven Van Dyck
I added the PE boat supports, the ship's anchor chains and the front AA platforms. The stern deck girders were abraded at the posts so they would fit the deck.

Taking a seat...
19. September, 11:53
Steven Van Dyck
Welcome, people! I now cleaned up the wheels, because the mudholes had a lot of flash. But now there is a discrepancy between the Aber and AFV tread plates. It should be the right PE set... At least it has some fine axle restraining braces.
18. October, 14:59
Olivier
Looks promising...
18. October, 16:26
Steven Van Dyck
Thanks, Olivier. Today I added the fender supports, the transmission and brake handles and the munition racks. Hobbyfan doesn't give any instructions, but I assumed they had to be placed perpendicular to the loading floor, leaving a crevice on top and after.
24. October, 23:16
Steven Van Dyck
Some additions to the cabin. I dry-fitted the engine but I decided to order the Aber engine hood. The munitions locker has a roof now, after some filling at the sides.

8. November, 11:56
Steven Van Dyck
Welcome, Jan. The Aber hood has arrived and is bent in shape. If only it had some hinges to hang on to the vehicle, but this seems not have been the case. I will have to put it aside of the half-track. An important point is that you are expected to be in possession of the Aber basic set to be able to add the ventilation hatches and hatch actuators in the hood. Luckily I was.
15. November, 21:44
Olivier
What colour will you paint the engine ?
15. November, 22:09
Steven Van Dyck
I built this set yesterday and though it looks very satisfactory I have to point out that it can not be completed without some parts of the Aber basic set for your vehicle.

Impressive work making the leg spines more realistic!
28. September, 00:14
Steven Van Dyck
Thanks, Mike! Now the antannas and other appendages are detailed. This is made by repeatedly rolling a knife over a thread.
30. September, 22:50
Nathan Dempsey
Your additional details are looking awesome!
30. September, 23:13
Olivier
What does it feed on ?
30. September, 23:19
Steven Van Dyck
Thanks, Nathan! For Oliver I have included a few pictures where it is hunting a locust. Yesterday it has finally molted to a full-grown mantis. Today I wanted to try to trace the kit wings on a piece of transparent plastic. That's better for the thickness, but now I lost the veins.
7. November, 01:34
Steven Van Dyck
The wings are replicated on a sheet of pvc, with Vallejo Gloss to recreate the veins.

Preacher! Every AFV builder making tracks from links and pins :D
18. April, 13:51
Steven Van Dyck
I took it up again, replacing the telephone box with PE and building the turret. It looks great, but it's a bit overengineered. The barrel can kick back in the mantlet with a spring, but why would a modeller need that? On the other hand, the fit of the mantlet to the turret is quite weak. I build the version with the .50 in the front.
26. October, 23:39
Steven Van Dyck
Thanks for the likes, I just added some more components.
28. October, 17:26
James C
Impressive detail work Steven. Looks like a nice kit as well compared to the bloody awful Italeri/Tamiya offering.
28. October, 17:47
Steven Van Dyck
Thanks, James. I also have the Eduard upgrade for the Italeri Chaffee, but I didn't use it. I expected some things not to fit on it. Now I built the .50 with Voyager PE and Lionroar turned brass.

Steven Van Dyck
Thanks, Tom, and everybody who liked the album. The Shilka has got some modulation now, using dark blue and yellow paint additions to get some contrast in the dull green. I chose the DDR outfit because of the conspicuous tricolore shield.
20. September, 21:31

Coming along nicely Steven. Great job on the paint work

Steven Van Dyck
The mantlet opening had to be increased in size after it shrunk 3mm while the hull was split. I figured out that the circle cutter wouldn't finish the job, it was hampered by the fenders. After the milling was done, I started to slash the remainder of the DS tracks for the extra 2mm width. They won't be visible, but they will tend the track properly.
31. August, 22:07
Steven Van Dyck
The wheel axles were repaired, but were reapplied too soon. Like this, the tires would not fit on the wheels, so all was disassembled again. All PE is fixed, though.
3. September, 22:47
Steven Van Dyck
The toolboxes unther the armor are replicated with styrene. This is a major omission from Dragon making it unlikeliy to build the towed version. They will not be visible but they suport the oblique armor angle. The last of the tracks are being adapted.

Bedankt, Maarten.

Tracks are now primed grey after measuring on the suspension and removing excess links. Also, the suspension area is primed Rustoleum grey.
7. September, 20:57
Steven Van Dyck
Painting has started with the wheels and suspension in Tamiya Olive Drab and the tracks and tires in Tamiya black. Takes a bit longer than the usual tank build.
10. September, 16:27
Steven Van Dyck
All lower hull parts are now painted olive drab. Tracks are masked and sprayed metallic, taking forever to get the thick pigment particles through my 0.20 mm airbrush nozzle. Wheels are combined with tires.
12. September, 23:52
Steven Van Dyck
All wheels are installed definitively and a sludge wash applied. After some rust and oil this can be masked.

A pit is made for the landing skis to let the Huey sink in a bit. I first prepared the field to make some crops, but this would have been too time-consuming for the water gel to harden. So I just smeared a mix of AK Transparent gel and Swamp Mud over it, followed by short grass fibers and then the Huey was pushed in. The excess grass will be removed later. The other fields are filled with Swamp gel and prepared like I had imagined for the larger field, just without the drilling. A Historex stork is added from the spare box, luckily it already had some primer. Reference pics are from centaursinvietnam.org/History/ihistoryEqAir3.html .
20. July, 22:12
Steven Van Dyck
The other vehicles are fixed to the base. The truck I pinned down, the jeep I only glued. Then, the Huey is further detailed at the front side. The doors should have been workable, but glue creeped in the lower hinges and they were fixed, offering a good internal view.
21. July, 21:00
Steven Van Dyck
The M60 guns get some attention from Eduard. I'm also adding a Tamiya bike I scored somewhere, with some Aber PE I scored on top of it. The wheels are going to look a lot better, but the bike will look a bit dilapidated when I'm through with it.
25. July, 22:07
Steven Van Dyck
The bike got a bit grainy from priming, but I will be adding rust too, so it should be no problem.
29. July, 20:40
Steven Van Dyck
The Vietnamese bike is now painted, so I'll be able to move on soon.
