Hello and welcome to the build. After recently completing the Krachenvogel FNS465 | Project by grabius (1:20) , I was keen to dig deeper into the Maschinen Krieger universe by building this interesting fellow. You'll note the "head" is a nearly-identical shape. But those two legs are new! Looking forward to digging into it and chatting with you all along the way.

Hi TWN ! Good seeing you again! This one will not have the LED treatment. Just a straight build without electronics...
18 February 2022, 19:00
In my opinion, it also does not always have to be electronics, a nice classic oob is always a beautiful thing 😉

This is going to be a very weathered and beaten machine so smooth application of paint is not my concern. Ahhh to be freed! After coming off of my most recent project - Nissan Fairlady 240ZG Build | Album by grabius (1:24) - where I focused on smooth, brushless painting, this sloppy style will be a release.

Now that I've finished my build, I can enjoy watching your cool build more closely.. 🧐

That paint looks unique. I like it. 👍
Already makes for an interesting surface.

Pulling up a seat. This is looking very interesting already.

That's right, Markus Kutsch ! I've appreciated not having to use any gloss anywhere!

tuned in!

Getting very close to the end of this build! I'm working carefully and methodically to refine each part no matter how small.

All done! The model was a blast to build and came together very easily. Parts needed a lot of sanding to remove seam lines and fill mars but nothing out of the ordinary for a (non-Tamiya) kit. I'm happy with how the weathering and dirt washes came out. All acrylic brush painting. Well, thanks for following along and see you on the next build!

Well done 👍

well done indeed 👍

You're really talented, Peter! Fantastic work on such a complex model!

Robin (WhiteGlint)
Wow, awesome work, Peter! 👍
With the shape of the body I get why it is called Gans now. 😄
3 March 2022, 07:26
Well done Gans! 👍 Btw are the legs turned around on purpose?

Nice, very nice 👍. Like your style of weathering 🙂
Is the shock absorber in picture 32 the same as the shock absorber seen in picture 33? If so, that's definitely a improvement.

FinUhu : Good eye! I thought the legs looked better in that arrangement.

lexjassies : So it turns out that Wave (maker of the kit) included more realistic shock absorbers and I needlessly painted the ones that are all plastic. I agree, it's a major improvement. Maybe I can use the painted shocks on a future build.

WhiteGlint , ah! I didn't know that "gans" means "goose" until your post. Thanks! You are spot on.

Thank you, TWN ! That means a lot to me. 🙂

Really, really liked this one. Thinking of kit bashing something simular and this is a great inspiration

Ein tolles Modell, sauber gebaut und lackiert.
