The wheels are pigmented with sand color and the hull got a dust filter. The wheels are fixed to the model, I will use the casting blocks as locating pins in my diorama.

A plaster base block is cast inside a metal frame. By this method, the AK Beach Sand must be applied with a fine brush after inserting the wheels.

The Saladin is finished today, after adding the antenna and the figures. Eventually these turned out OK, though the driver position remains an empty hole.

The suspension comes first in this build, something to pay attention to as mistakes can be made on the steering parts position. The leopard figures will be changed to caracals or "rooikats".

The model has no rotor retraction joint details, so I drilled the hole for it and added scratch detail. Some of the PE was hammered with a ball bearing.
4. July, 22:45
Steven Van Dyck
The second rotor is finished and a start on the interior is made with a lot of ejector marks to be filled in.
8. July, 22:01
Steven Van Dyck
The front engine nacelle is adapted to the Blackdog replacement parts. The fit is well but care had to be taken not to bend the leftover kit parts.
10. July, 22:19
Steven Van Dyck
The rear rotor nacelle interior is easily installed. For the instrument panel I chose a combination of the resin front part (be it referenced on a CH-46E example - this I could expect from the Blackdog set name) and the Eduard instruments, being flatter but very realistically painted. A PE sunscreen must be added too, so the instruments are a dry-fit. I found an error in the reference book, showing the details of the CH46-D front hatch under the CH46-E chapter.
12. July, 20:57
Steven Van Dyck
The interior painting instructions are quite confusing on the left side, so I did a bit of guessing. I added shadows and then a lot of decals, which were great. The Blackdog nose resin and Eduard PE instruments are fixed.

After their Triceratops I knew I wanted to tackle another of Pegasus' dinosaur models. This one is even larger. I took the time to remove all casting traces and resculpted where needed. The dinosaur will be preying on a large fish called Xiphactinus.

Everybody welcome, I have now primered the figures and used yellow as a base color for the Spinosaurus.

Hmm, I must have been in my prehistoric cave too long.. I didn't know Zombicide has a paint line from the Army Painter
6. September, 00:58
Steven Van Dyck
JD, the set has 6 bottles, containing this yellow, a pink, a light green and an orange for jailmate suits, plus some washes.

The dino needed some cosmetic surgery to its tail and neck. It shows some extrusion lines and the joint where you glue the neck has to be retextured. Then I painted the shield and neck a pale yellow and then a German Camo Brown shadow, with white teeth. The fish needed to be varnished to keep it from bleeding silver.

Thanks for the compliment, I found the courage to add the front doors this weekend. Now it's only the roof and then I can start the gun build.
27. July, 14:20
Steven Van Dyck
Time for the PAK. The barrel is fun, but they totally botched the pre-bent splintershields. They were both a bit deformed and easily corrected, but one is completely plied to the wrong side. So I will have to flatten it again and then "counterbend" the bends. And it has to be perfect to get the spacers into the locator holes. We'll find out next time if I had to buy a new shield or not.
4. September, 22:22
Steven Van Dyck
It's worked out with the kit shield and both plates are now positioned with the AFV spacer set. I even have enough bolts to do a Scheunentor afterward, so that goes on the wishlist. The torsion bars are staggered, something that is arranged correctly in the kit but is not visible in the build step aspect. Therefore, checking with your Nuts&Bolts reference is really helpful. One locator block had to be removed to correctly place the extreme parts of the torsion legs.

Project: Cylon Raider
1:32 CYLON RAIDER (Moebius Models 926)
7 | 14. May, 22:43
Steven Van Dyck
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.
14. May, 22:48
Ben M
that'll look cool!
14. May, 23:06
JD
Count me in!
15. May, 06:24
Steven Van Dyck
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.

 
23. May, 00:32
Steven Van Dyck
I am building a pentangular stand for the Raider, that will contain the battery pack and the PCB and is made out of a 3mm lower plate and 2mm walls. The battery pack will be accessible through the floor. Cutting through the thick styrene plates is done quite easily with the Tamiya engraving tool.
17. July, 23:05
Steven Van Dyck
The stand is now polished after the joints were filled with Evergreen rod. The leds have been installed on a plate scratched to match the face of the Raider, so all of them had to fit inside 10mm. A tube with a diameter of 7mm was needed to connect the base and the model. The PCB is placed top down so the frequency can be adapted through a hole in the bottom. The battery pack door is hinged with a wire and will have a lock. The two blue leds for the thrusters will get their own switch to make them independent of the roving eye. Soldering everything to test this will make it necessary to paint the model and the base after connecting both.
