Steven Van Dyck I've seldom seen a sprue that was so attacked by sinkmarks on the channel nodes. It doesn't show on the model parts, but it makes the part numbers that are exactly there, close to undecipherable. Does this happen with other Eduard kits as well? I would suggest they don't place these numbers on top of sprue junctions and mould the numbers on cast paels like everybody else. I also did well to buy the improved seat. To close down the fuselage, there will be needed some strain.
5. January at 01:12:14
Steven Van Dyck The cockpit is painted and the fuselage halves are connected.
7. January at 17:14:48
Steven Van Dyck Its a bit of a job to have all the seams filled up. The hardpoints are quite blunt, I had to reshape them.
11. January at 00:37:38
Steven Van Dyck I chose to have the canopy open. I do not recommend to build it closed, there are some fitting problems that require sanding on the fuselage, as you can see on my pictures. The eduard PE rocket template is very useful on the Matra rocket, but I hope it works better with brass Sidewinders then with resin ones. I remember it was not precise enough for the resin fins to align them correctly.
1. February at 20:06:29
Steven Van Dyck The Sidewinders were more difficult because of the small parts, but it was worth the effort. I repainted the wheelbays in silver (and I also repaired a small bike for my godchild, she painted it with Vallejo's zombie inmate paint set).
3. February at 18:10:21
Patrick Hagelstein Nice bike! :D
3. February at 18:13:34
Jos Jansen Nice progress so far Steven...!
3. February at 18:13:37
Patrick Hagelstein This kit isn't exemplary for Eduard's otherwise very nice and very buildable kits... If I remember correctly, this is one of their first attempts at producing injected molded plastic model kits to complement their PE products and they have come a long way since. I will build any new Eduard kit without even twitching an eye, they're so good! I have this kit back home as well and (apart from being across the Atlantic) it's sitting on the Shelve of Doom..... Maybe one time I'll finish it. Until then, I keep following your proceedings over here. ;)
3. February at 18:17:20
Steven Van Dyck Thanks for the comments, today I used Gunze H45 to paint the underside of the Mirage and its droptanks. I shaded the panellines and then highlighthed the panels. The rockets are primed white.
21. February at 22:15:51
Steven Van Dyck The Light Sand color Mr.Hobby H79 was painted yesterday and shaded today. In a moment I will continue on the third color.
24. February at 21:10:02
Steven Van Dyck Painting is done now, let's do the decals. The Mr.Hobby H72 went on really well, but painting the tyres after spraying the gear silver was a bad idea. Even though it is Tamiya NATO black, the paint chipped upon touching and will need some repair.

Steven Van Dyck The loader has been improved with the Voyager PE upgrade, even when it was going to have photo etch out of the box. The difference lies in the method to create riveting, using embossing in stead of etched detail. Even more improvement will follow when all piping is done with wires. The hydraulic cylinders of the elevation device have to be sawn off to accomodate a PE ring. This has got an overscale perforation though, 5,2mm having to fit over a 4,8 tube. I will address this with a small 5,5mm ring.
12. January at 21:29:02
Steven Van Dyck Thanks, Lode! The crew has manned their stations now, I found a funny picture I want to imitate, so I repositioned one of the drivers a bit.
19. January at 19:49:04
Steven Van Dyck I found a great walkaround for the Kondensator: walkarounds.scalemodels.ru/v..afv/after_1950/Kondensator/. I'm using it now to superdetail the hydraulics.
28. January at 22:50:54
Slavo Hazucha Very much looking forward to the hydraulic superdetailing! You know your trade in this department
3. February at 10:44:52
Steven Van Dyck Thanks, Slavo! On these pictures from walkarounds.scalemodels.ru/ you can see what is missing on the model. I had to add some quite complicated machinery. Some of the wiring needed a lot of force to fix to the plating.
6. February at 17:12:10
Steven Van Dyck Even more hydraulic ducts are added, following the pictures.
12. February at 00:07:05
Steven Van Dyck Making flexible hoses is a time-consuming endeavour. For the wire shown, it took one hour and a half to spin the copper thread around it. I also improved the position of the brass tubes on the rammer.
15. February at 23:32:50
Steven Van Dyck Some more flexible ducts are produced, and then it's only the small details.

Vesa-Pekka Palmu The topol-M is even slightly longer than the first generation topol of the zvedna kit..
2. February at 17:19:50
Chris I added it both times. It's in Trumpeter's 2021 catalogue. When I first added it, someone changed the photo to the fake one from a few years ago. I didn't re-add the listing until now because I didn't know about the fake listing from before, and thought maybe Trumpeter cancelled the project.
3. February at 03:18:22
Steven Van Dyck So they don't have a box-art yet? The fake one seemed doubtful because it didn't focus on one TEL, like a Trumpeter box would. I also wonder if there is any news about the Famo plans they had last year.
3. February at 06:06:57
Ingo F As usual, Trumpeter put some real pictures as a placeholder for the box-art.
3. February at 12:23:35
Michael Valentan In the catalog they already have a boxart. and i will get one of this cool Vehicle...saw it years ago for real in St. Petersburg and fell in love...

Steven Van Dyck The results are shown. It looks comparable to the base gel. I see very tiny air bubbles, but these are not visible more than half a metre away. Now some further detailing, I already finished the ship's wake.
16. January at 23:48:39
Bart Teunis Steve question did you form a base (the form and the waves) before you placed the gel ?
17. January at 08:39:41
Steven Van Dyck Yes, Bart, this can be observed on picture 43 and further. The base is a plaster cast. Yorktown + Hammann | Album by StevenVD (1:700)
17. January at 16:23:36
Aleš Pražák Very nice!
17. January at 17:10:30
Bart Teunis Thanks Steven, good to know
18. January at 16:25:24
Steven Van Dyck Thank you. I wanted 4 Wildcats on Yorktown, but some modifications were necessary for the wheelbays. The WEM Enterprise set has nothing on it for Wildcats, but the Corsairs wheels can be turned into a nice retractable wheel set.
19. January at 10:24:00
Steven Van Dyck The Wildcats got their decals, weathering and a matt coat (not as matt as I imagined). I also made a nameplate out of the Yorktown one and an old CVN nameplate I had. The lettering for Hammann is scratch.

Steven Van Dyck Apparently i never made an album for this project, that was on hold for almost 6 years. I had drilled extra portholes in the destroyer's hull, but these were not needed for the timeframe it was depicted in. This week, I corrected that issue. The first part of this build can be found on the Ship's forum at shipmodels.info/mws_forum/vi..;t=154909&hilit=hammann.
22. November 2019 at 10:22:52
Steven Van Dyck Both ships are painted partially, first with grey Tamiya paint to primer the PE and the with Lifecolor. Now they are masked for the secand camo colors. Hammann was hardest with its horizontal surface deck blue restrictions.
29. November 2019 at 17:13:44
Steven Van Dyck The ship's camo is painted and a layer of Pledge used to protect the paint for the next steps.
2. December 2019 at 21:04:12
Steven Van Dyck The railing for both ships is added after painting. I looked for a better seabase, it's more spacious now.
8. December 2019 at 22:14:41
Steven Van Dyck While unpacking my ESM special prize for Princeton, I also found some time to cast the water base for Yorktown and Hammann. I thought to use aluminum foil for wave shaping, but it caused too many bubbles and was abandoned for a more classical method. Then, some Mig Deep Oceans completed the preparations for today.
11. December 2019 at 22:43:31
Steven Van Dyck The weathering of the hulls is done with washes for rust, grime and oil. Hammann's boot topping was only Vallejo black, it got scraped off but was quickly repainted. The deck is airbrushed with two wood tones, first red brown and then light sand. The boats got a coat of red brown and a light sand interior.
26. December 2019 at 14:10:28
Dave Flitton Some excellent work so far!!
26. December 2019 at 14:43:34
Steven Van Dyck Thanks, Dave. The project is finished now, I added some Wildcats and figures from two different set to have about 50 sailors on the two ships. I detailed the Yorktown deck to show all textures. After 8 years, it can finally rest in my showcase.

Steven Van Dyck Thanks for the nice comments, guys! You make me blush. Just added deck weathering and I decided to scratch all flags from a piece of aluminium foil. Like that, it moves more realistic than the Dragon offerings, nice as they are.
4. November 2019 at 16:51:08
Steven Van Dyck Some of the figures are already installed, next to the Mk.13 torpedoes. A lot of work went into removing them from my painting stand. I would advise against using CA to fix them, it's harder than some of their legs...

7. October 2019 at 16:17:36
Steven Van Dyck It took a few more days, but that's because the BTR will attend the contest of Plastic and Steel tomorrow. At least, I hope so, because I didn't have the chance to pre-inscribe...
The snow is made with Vallejo Foam and Snow covered with Joefix snow powder. A last layer of Still Water is just added, it's still a bit opaque. The hatch retractor cable and an antenna are added. The airbrush strated to act a bit weird, but because this resembled snowflakes, I went wild with it. I hope you like it too.

Neuling Impressive detailwork on a very interesting piece of artillery! It`s scale 1/32 isn´t it? Congrats anyway for the well deserved gold medal!

Kerry COX There is nothing like the taste of GOLD. ;)
Salute. !
13. October 2019 at 21:51:50
Steven Van Dyck Thanks, guys. When I came back, I saw that the running around had created havoc around the pneumatic lines on the fifth wheel after, so it will stay home from now on.

Steven Van Dyck I started the build, although the hull is quite warped.
24. January 2019 at 23:48:03
Steven Van Dyck The suspension has some very movable parts, but attention has to be given to the manual. The towing hooks are unassembled in the sprue and the suspension arms seem wrongly numbered.
5. February 2019 at 18:57:50
Steven Van Dyck Today, I found three different cases of instruction errors. The track tnesioning adjustment bars and some of the suspension parts are switched up and there is a PE part that got the wrong number. I needed to redrill the tensioning arm to get the other adjustment part back on. The wheels are a nice assembly to build. The reason that this build continues now, is that I got hold of the Lion Roar upgrade for the Bronco M24, which I am fitting to the AFV version. It contains the tank fenders and some turned parts of the .50.

Steven Van Dyck Some engine scratching is necessary to fill up space beneath the Voyager mesh.

Jörg Luther Solid craftsmanship. What's pic #25 showing?
1. October 2019 at 06:00:59
Steven Van Dyck Thanks, Jörg. This pic shows the remnants of a Revell/Italeri M47 engine, not needed in this project: M47 Patton | Project by StevenVD (1:35) It was also used on the atomic cannon (see M65 Atomic Cannon | Album by StevenVD (1:32) and further) but now I found some parts looking a lot like these generators on it. They are being sliced off it on the picture.
1. October 2019 at 17:24:10
Steven Van Dyck The fake engine is now installed and painted. i also drilled a lot of 0,30mm holes for the Voyager strap tie-downs. They have short of two.
2. October 2019 at 21:16:01
Steven Van Dyck It takes a while to finish the motor deck. But then it shines like gold. Interesting are the flash on the plastic grille, the wrong hinge halves and the excessive PE parts from Voyager for it.

This should be removed, it's clearly a double for German Knight (MiniArt 16002, 1:16)

Maybe it should be stressed again that people shouldn't add obviously existing stuff of popular brands like Miniart without checking if it doesn't already exist.

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.

Peter Hardy I get nervous when I see a razor saw in the background!!
17. May 2019 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 2019 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 2019 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 2019 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.

29. May 2019 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 2019 at 20:33:25
Lenny V Looks stunning Steven! I admire your patience, it really shows in the finished model.

Steven Van Dyck Now the barbettes get 40mm ammo racks. They're nice to see but a pain to fix in the tapering barbette insides.

Steven Van Dyck The smaller barbettes are finally done, they were finished in 4 rounds to avoid insanity. Now up for the two large ones.

Steven Van Dyck Thanks! I hope so too. It helps that I already provided the complete Lifecolor paint set, and that a week of vacation is approaching.
