Love this Tamiya kit. Keeping it mostly OOB, with a few drilled out lights. Replaced turret bars with wires to give it a more natural look.
If you are looking for a nice looking and easy to put together model, you could do much worse than this one. Most of my models take many weeks, this might be put together in 2 days - did tracks and wheels yesterday in about 2 hours, almost completed the construction in maybe 3 hours today.

Slavo Hazucha
Watching this, not least because I have an idea to try something involving a 48-scale tank (and most probably this particular one)

Looks like a really nice kit, not resisting the attempts to get build and thus leaving ample time & opportunity to focus on making it really nice! ;)
22. January, 20:35
Palo M
Thanks! Of course, first pieces are now consumed by the carpet monster, so now I'm stuck on deciding whether to call it battle damage, or to scratch build replacements...

As I finished construction today, the little T-55 received a layer of black primer and various rust tones from MRP. It might currently look like an autumn prop, it's only a temporary stage.

48-scale an all different world - provided the model is not an upscaled 72 like some Zvezda kits... :D

I hope you are enjoying this as much as I did, the seat definitely looks like it! You really worked out all those beautiful details with the wash & paint-job

Thanks Nathan and playtime 222. I soldered the engine parts, as glue didn't quite cut it. Went quite well.
Thanks for the comment on sharing, first time the whole model was done with MRP paints, they are excellent. A thin layer lets the pre-shading show nicely through, multiple layers cover it completely. I also sprayed a different shade of grey over the whole surface through a dish washing sponge (through the more rough part, which I thinned to make sure I can spray through). This made the surface more interesting, but was a lot of work :). Remembering all my trouble with Vallejo air, it's a world of difference. I hope I'll never have to use Vallejo air again (except for brushing, which works fine). Haven't sprayed Tamiya or Gunze yet, can't compare to them.
15. January, 16:24
playtime 222
I'm the other way - sprayed T and G (fine BTW) but not the V :-/
15. January, 17:27
Palo M
Keep it that way :) Vallejo clogs the AB as it quickly dries. It's also had to spray with a narrow stream, at least I can't. Never again.
15. January, 18:54
Palo M
Most important of all, my wife is impressed the model turned out this way, as she was worried it's just not good enough to finish nicely. And my stress of disappointing her with ruining the gift she gave me many years ago is now also over. It also got ves some extra satisfaction from seeing an acceptable result from all the effort. Maybe not as great as Nathan's, but I'm happy!
15. January, 19:28
Daniel
I am impressed as well lovely result and some nice pics! Congrats for a clear victory over the kit Palo!
Hope you gave your wife some hints that this kit is absolutely-- err ---that there are a lot of much better kits out there ;)

I still love my vallejos - shake the bottle, drops pure in the cup, 35psi, 0,4 mm nozzle and bang! Hot water - spray - clean. Quick and easy, less sputter and less clogging no need for misty coat and stuff with this setup.
But I agree for low-pressure free-hand patterns or transparent layers I use lacquers.
15. January, 19:47
Nathan Dempsey
I like your build better Palo. I wish I would have posed mine with the canopy down now :)
15. January, 20:38
Slavo Hazucha
Been following this closely and I´m really impressed - the paint-job really catapulted it to the next level

The color seems just right and the weathering perfectly represents a "used but not abused" EF as they are often found in RAF service. Nice one indeed!

+ I had a similar story working with MRP´s - started with a conservative "lets paint the thing somehow" goal, but as I worked out how easy the control is (and the cleaning...), it just pushed me on to experiment & try out new things... :) - & wait until you get into the metal business, that´s where the real fun is hiding!
15. January, 22:55
Palo M
Thanks! I've been sticking to alclad for metals, the surface they create is fantastic. Lately had some issues though, they would clog the airbrush and it would either spray nothing or a giant blob. Maybe I should give MRP metals a try.

A simple weekend build. The kit fits together very well, is a joy to build. Would recommend trying to paint the guns separately from the rest.
7. June 2020, 13:10
Slavo Hazucha
Cool stuff - I never even held a "Das Werk" model, but words have been good...

Nice topic as well - they really went creative on those muzzle-brakes... Happy times drilling them all out :D I only saw something mildly similar on the Flakpanzer Gepard - was this supposed to be recoilless or did they just really needed to teach troops not to block the gunners view by standing anywhere near this contraption..?

Nice results too with the chipping & scratching bits, soon going to be Night-shift time at your desk! ;)
8. June 2020, 11:13

I have no idea what the engineers had in mind for this Vierling, probably only 2-3 were ever built. It was the appeal of a nice weekend build and this kit did deliver. I'm now doing a Takom kit and can only appreciate the effort that went into the Vierling - so much nicer!
8. June 2020, 12:26

You should put the Vierling in a Whirbelwind, would be an interesting (historical) what if!

No problem!
"The Wirbelwind II " Zerstorer 45" In hope to increase the Wirbelwind firepower in December of 1944, Ostbau built one prototype armed with quadruple 3 cm Flakvierling 103/28. Due to the chaotic situation in the German war industry, only this single prototype was ever built. According to Walter J. Spielberg, up to five were built by January of 1945 and these were issued to front line troops for use."

I guess the Soviets just put everything they could think of on the KV chassis... :D Is that basically an IS-2 turret there?

Great looking engine - you are not seriously keeping it under the cover? :o
1. June 2020, 10:13
Palo M
The cover is there to prevent the engine from turning green :) I'm now experimenting with Vallejo chipping medium and MRPaint. Vallejo says to only combine with acrylics, we shall see. As MRP doesn't provide a good "booklet" of what their colors look like, I tried all shades of green I have to find on that works best. I think I'll go with MRP-102, SEA green.

I did find an online reference to their colors, however the shade they show for MRP-26, 4BO, is nothing like what it looks like on the tank. Thus, I'm spraying it on some spare parts to see what it actually looks like.
1. June 2020, 13:49
Palo M
Turns out, MRP over Vallejo chipping medium is fine.
29. June 2020, 20:46

@Lukasz, funny mention the accelerator: was in a store with @Slavo once and the shopkeeper tried to sell us one. We both thought it's pretty much a scam :) will look up how it helps.

Accelerator is handy thing, but you have to remember two things while using it:
- it's quick and I mean really quick!
- the glue itself becomes gooey for a second and sometimes milky or white, not transparent anymore
28. August 2020, 08:04

Thanks Lukas! Maybe I'll try wood glue first, sounds a bit safer :)

This is such an attractive little aircraft and you managed to do it justice. I feel your pain with the panel-liner, it is always my fear to trip and fall on the finishing line. But you managed to rescue it nicely!

Thank you, Thomas! I was despairing while rescribing-sanding-priming-rescribing many times over, I was afraid it all holds together on putty only. But I'm glad oils made it look good in the end. Of course a long way to go until I got something like your MiG-15Uti, but that's why I'm here, to learn!

Thanks, Nathan, I think Slavo has an AMUR engine upgrade, not the Amigo one.
20. July 2020, 14:03

Vladimir - thank you, looks good! I think I'll order them. Do they need lots of adjustment to fit in properly in the GWH kit?
20. July 2020, 14:05
Slavo Hazucha
Indeed, I had the AMUR´s. The diameter is about 1,5-2mm smaller than the GWH-kit tubes. AMURS are "for Kittyhawk kit"...

Donald had the AMIGOS, but he actually had the Kittyhawk kit:

Flunked Flanking... DONE! | Album by smokeriderdon (1:48)

They seem to have the right diameter for the Kittyhawk kit... so options are:

A: KH kit has smaller diameter tubes, AMURS & AMIGOS fit KH, but are both too small for GWH
B: AMUR has smaller diameter nozzles, too small for both GWH & KH kit hence AMIGOS would fit GWH too

place your bets... :D

20. July 2020, 14:42

Yes that's right. Since the diameters of the engine hoods are slightly different AMIGO releases two sets: one for KittyHawk (AMG48025) and one for GWH (AMG48025-1)
