Luis Alvarez Thanks guys! Tamiya's M8 kit is really outdated and lacks of a lot of details. I tried to work'em out with sheet metal and plastic, solder and copper wire, a couple of Eduard's PE kits and Verlinden's + TM resin. I added texture to the upper surfaces with Tamiya liquid cement and my finger. I'm currently working in the suspension, but the kit's wheels are early type and my subject is late type, besides the VVS lacks detail. Fortunately, AFV club sells the M3/M5/M8 suspension in kit firm for a reasonable price and what a bounty it is! Cheers!

Maik Berlin Hello Luis! I am definitely watching your project! Ever wanted to build an M8, but as you said, the price for the resin-one is very high. So your build is highly interesting! Good work so far!
29. June 2015 at 07:55:16
Kerry COX Lous, I am always fascinated by the 'detail' and yours is not lacking from it.
Just a tremendous series of images mate, you gotta' love it. :)

9. July 2019 at 05:10:01
Sergej I Where will you get the vikings for that?
9. July 2019 at 06:06:12
Luis Alvarez Well, no Vikings in sight right now. No 1:50 figures are available. The only way right now is either heavily modify existing 1:50 scale figures or sculpt some by myself....
9. July 2019 at 15:18:42
Sergej I Check D&D minis, some dwarves might qualify :D
9. July 2019 at 15:22:28
Luis Alvarez D&D minis.... I'll look into it. Thank you Sergej!

Nathan Dempsey Common gaming figures in 28mm are about 1:56 scale. That may be as close as you can get for ready made figures.

Great build so far!

Luis Alvarez Thanks Nathan!

Erik De Smet The kit looks as weird as the plane itself
9. July 2019 at 15:06:54
Luis Alvarez Yes indeed, it is an awful kit. Terrible casting! Very challenging....right now I'm figuring how to balance it as the tail is very heavy and the nose is all transparent. Probably I'll glue it to a flat base because even an all- metal cockpit floor is not doing the trick. Besides, the resin is very brittle an if I go too heave probably the nose undercarriage will bend or brake.

Luis Alvarez Thank you guys! I'm really learning a lot and with your help and enthusiasm I keep myself motivated. I'm finishing the shields and will start painting the dragon head. The sail is a big challenge as I don't know how to make them yet. Then the rigging and ...voila!

Luis Alvarez Thanks Augie! I'm battling the oars now. I just can't get a reference for the right oar length!
28. December 2018 at 18:47:43
Augie 5 to 6 meters was the average IIRC for oar length
28. December 2018 at 19:07:22

Luis Alvarez Jaja! Yes...! Now I'm trying to figure out the sail. As I don't know how to sew, my attempts have been really a disappointment...... In the meantime I keep moving with the shields...the 28 of them. Very repetitive work as the tracks of a tank!
