Bryn Crandell Interesting kit. Strange that the wheels ha a small variance between the kit and the aftermarket ones.

Ingo F Little update on this one. Also added some pics of the kit and resin wheels.
11. February at 22:49:23
Ingo F Hey guys here the next update on this monster. I was out with a cold for the past few days and therefore could not build or post in this time. The frame is almost finished and i will prime it tomorrow. Then moving to the cabines and interrior.

I had to search long for the pictures of the BM-30. Especially for the pictures of the frame. I was not sure if the frame is black or also painted in the camo colors. I found both variations: Smerch painted in camo with a black frame and also a Smerch completely painted in camo colors even the frame.
I decided to go with a russian two tone camo sheme: Green and light green. The frame will be also painted in camo colors on the outside. I will upload a picture of the camo sheme later.

The building process till now was without any problems. The only thing i didnt like so far was that you have to use the PE parts. There are no plastic parts that you can use instead of the PE parts.
Trumpeters PE parts are way to think on the bending points and it make it very hard to bend very small parts.
Advise for you guys: use the sharp tip of your hobby knife and go with it over the bending points. Two or three times are enough. Just turn around the PE part and look if you can see the wells on the other side. After that you can bend the parts without any problems.
I am still not sure if i shoud use the kits wheels or replace them with MENGs resin wheels. :/
18. February at 23:14:49
Dan M Ingo, when I look at one of your builds I'm always admiring your PE building skills. You do a good job and it inspires me to try harder on my builds as I always do crappy PE stuff.
18. February at 23:21:09
Ingo F Hehe, thank you Dan for your kind words. :D
I llike to use the PE parts on reasonable places but not like using them everywhere and replace half of your model with them.
18. February at 23:49:14
Ingo F This PE madness is really killing me. Took me almost two hours to get the fenders right and glue them to the model. The fenders are hold by 6 parts that are made from PE parts and you have to glue them to a structure that you later need to glue to the frame. And here the problems started. Somehow it was not possible to glue the PE parts and they just fell off. I managed to glue them but had to use too much off CA glue. In the end i decided to remove the parts again, clean the attachment points and glue them anew. Now the parts are fixed and very hard to remove.
I think i messed up two or three of this holders while bending them.
Its some kind annoying that you dont have an choise and have to use the PE parts. :(
19. February at 21:57:51
James C Nice progress mate and looking very good so far.
I used to be a big fan of PE, but not so much now. Fat fingers and a lack of dexterity sometimes make it more trouble than its worth for me. It's great for engine grills and covers etc, but I think it's way over priced and sometimes very much over rated.
21. February at 20:23:35
Ingo F Thank you James. Yeah using PE parts for engine grills and covers is a good idea but i dont like to use them to connect two plastic parts as i am always afraid that they could easily break off.

Project: Leopard 1 A5 in scale 1:35
1:35 Leopard 1 A5/C2 (Takom 2004)
30. January at 20:20:08 Share
Ingo F Here comes another german cat that is resting on my work bench right now. This kit was finished between the T-10M and the start of the King Tiger.
Very nice and interesting kit and really fast to build. Unfortunately no clear parts for the sights.
This one is an Takom kit and also have no information about the number of track links per side.
For you guys its 83 tracks per side. :)
The tracks are from Orochi and workable. Really easy to build.
30. January at 20:28:52
James C Nice. I was wondering what this kit is like to build. Will probably go with the longer turret version when time comes to do mine. Are you going to do a NATO scheme or green only?
30. January at 23:15:00
Dan M Oooooh, nice subject! I'm in. I have the Meng's version, the A3/A4.
30. January at 23:19:10
Ingo F James i am going t build the german one with NATO camo sheme. The longer turret version, you mean Leopard C2 the Canadian version?
31. January at 00:21:57
Ingo F Hey Dan i was planning to get the Meng's version to build the A3 version despites that i already have the old A4 version from Tamiya finished.
31. January at 00:24:33
Dan M I just love the early Leopards with their round turret, so I had to get the A3. I'm also considering the Revell kit 03240 which is an even earlier version. And it also doesn't have anymore the much hated green plastic :)
31. January at 09:51:24
Ingo F Dan, the A3 version got the same turret as the A4. A welded angular turret.
I got te new Revell Leo also on my list. :D
Going to replace the tracks with the AM tracks from Leopard Club.
31. January at 10:13:33
James C Hi Ingo, yes probably the Canadian version as I don't have anything else at this stage with which to do as a Canadian armoured vehicle with exception to the Lav III which is destined to become an NZ Army unit. ;). The Leopard family of tanks have great lines and look awesome! ;)
31. January at 21:15:21
Ingo F Little update on this one. Applied the base color NATO Green from Tamiya and painted the tracks.
12. February at 20:37:17
Dan M Looks good . What color did you use for the tracks ?
12. February at 22:02:53
Ingo F Thank you Dan. The tracks were primed with NATO black. Then i masked the inner tracks and sprayed a mix of rusty tracks and dry light mud over the whole track. It was about 80% - 85% rusty tracks and 15% - 20% dry light mud. The inner tracks were then drybrushed with steel color. The rubber blocks were painted with dark rubber from Vallejo. You can read about it here:
themodellingnews.com/2016/10..ted-andy-finishes-mengs.html
I really liked the way the tracks looks in this build and decided to test it out on my model.
12. February at 23:00:54
Dan M That's an interesting article, thank you Ingo!
