Tamiya decals have the reputation of being a bit on the thick side, and the ones in this kit are very thick. Having said that, I'm useless with decals. Other people don't seem to have had a problem.

I was too until find micro twins

Growing up we use hot water and that was it!! Haha

Sand down those thick decals haha
20. November 2020, 16:06
Joshua Strong
So you painted the "decals" on right?
20. November 2020, 16:08
Joshua Strong
What I dislike is ripping a decal because too thin!!
20. November 2020, 16:09

I just sprayed on the red/white rectangles rather than use those decals.

I watch out for it, however i try to build mainly easy airplanes by airfix in 1:72 and tanks in 1:48

I have trouble with car kits (all the car suspensions parts and engine parts.

It is really cool truck and like driver and tool box in the back!

If I am ever in Britain, Driver is on the right side of the truck!
19. November 2020, 18:04
gorbygould
This is a really easy kit Joshua - simple suspension and no engine. Although, I converted mine to a civilian version rather than the military options that Tamiya offers. It doesn't come with the tool box - that was from a different kit.

somehow, i missed this beauty! excellent, as usual. looking forward that dio :)
16. September 2020, 15:14
gorbygould
Thanks Spanjaard!
I was just planning the dio a couple of days ago and I may have too much to fit into the space. As this is only intended to be a bit-player in the dio, it may not make the grade.
16. September 2020, 16:31

you can always give it own little vignette ;)

Spanjaard: I really enjoyed working in this scale so perhaps if I end up with something else to put with it, it may end up with a little dio or something.

Great job Gorby! I thought the color is a primer, and it will look finally like pic 1. The paint is may be a left over from your Roland? ;) Would be a nice pair together!

gorbygould
:D :D :D
Thanks mates for the comments.
Michael: The Jehlik AV is a future possibility, but due to it's size I'm going to have to resort to 1/72!
Frank: The colour is the nearest I could find to WWI battleship grey, but who knows what colour it would really have been - I don't. I've tried persuading Roland to pose with it, but he's just cowering on the shelf and won't go anywhere near the monster.

Now I'd like to see the size of the truck you'd need to take it to the actual battlefield. Didn't this thing have a top speed around 10mph?
19. June 2020, 09:50
gorbygould
I should imagine that if it managed to get to 10mph the designers would have thrown a party to celebrate. If they had ever built any, the more likely outcome would probably be the stripping all the gears in the gearboxes, before it exploded into a million pieces taking a significant part of Texas with it.
Thereby resulting in the score: American industrial ingenuity 0, Mexican donkey 1. ;)

gorbygould
Thanks very much Alec. I'm pleased that you enjoyed my efforts, although, a little concerned that someone may actually follow my advice. It's never done me any good. :D
As you enjoyed that, I'll let you into a secret – I've decided what my next scratch-build is going to be, Google 'holt 150 ton field monitor'. It's going to be a whopper!

You're right, this one didn't seem to go down that well on Brexitmodeller (A very unfortunate name – but the 'Brexit' bit has nothing to do with this 'leaving Europe' business). It's only got a very small membership (I don''t think the name helps) but they're are a great bunch of nut-jobs who rarely take anything seriously. Which is why I like it. I usually repeat my stuff on Britmodeller as well, and it got a much better reception there.
17. February 2020, 15:19

Wow! That looks very ambitious. Send us a link to your WIP thread on Brexit or Britmodeller when you get started so we don't have wait until it's all over

What a great build Gorby! I'm glad you persevered with this build.
25. February 2020, 18:46
gorbygould
Thanks very much mates. :)
Bughunter: Yes it is very, very impressive and I did give it some thought, but to do it justice it needs to be built by a significantly better modelled than myself. Someone like Angel or, errmmm, let me think, eerrrmmmm, are yes, BUGHUNTER! Go on, I dare you. ;)
