5. October 2015, 23:42 Share
Fabian D. Inspired by George tackeling the old version of the kit (M-46 Patton, 6th Tank Battalion, 24th Infantry Division, Korea, 1951 | Album by Gbmodeler (1:35) I collected it´s rebox quite cheap. It´s been a nice and easy build, just had some fun creating a better casting texture.
The rebox comes with DS-tracks, which seem to be a little too short, but more about that later. I´m currently busy cursing the desinger of the Decals as they don´t like beeing twisted around on the glacis plate. Surprise, surprise...
6. October 2015, 00:01
Hunter Cummins I was thinkimg of getting this kit, or the hobbyboss version...
6. October 2015, 02:25
Hunter Cummins But the yellow looks absolutely great so far
6. October 2015, 02:45
Fabian D. Thanks buddy, but which Hobby Boss version?
Got the decals on aftersome struggle. As it turns out the you should:
cut the carrier film on the side of the claws,
not attach towing lugs and pioneer tools on the front plate,
cut the huge mouth decal in at least three pieces (upper, lower and side part).
Other than that, there is probably no way to get front decal on, I ended up with a few scratches and about 3mm "excess decal" in the middle section. Luckily everything could be cured with some extra paintwork...
13. October 2015, 21:13
Hunter Cummins No problem! And sorry thought this was an M-26 for some reason :S. But the decals look so awesome
13. October 2015, 23:14

15. August 2015, 02:56
Calvin Gifford Quite a few people have commented on various forums that it is actually much bigger than 1/32 - more along the lines of 1/28 to 1/30!!
15. August 2015, 02:59
Hunter Cummins Oh! Well even better!
15. August 2015, 03:00
Calvin Gifford And, although not mentioned in any of the forums, it did come with a driver & three other figures. I may modify one or two for my 1/28 Spad/Fokker Dr.I Centenary build for my local VFW.

George Bacon Thanks Brian and Bill. I greatly appreciate the comments and encouragement! Brian, the gun mantlet cover was added after the gun was fully installed on the turret. I cut a rectangle out of a plastic grocery bag; put a slit in the middle to get it over the barrel; and played with the fit to ensure it "draped" over the mantlet details, and was large enough to extend all around the mantlet. It also had to reach the point on the barrel where I wanted to attach it. Once satisfied with the fit, I super glued it around the barrel to "pin" it down, then started trimming, tucking, and super gluing around the mantlet edges starting at the top. That way, all the unwanted "excess" ended up at the bottom. Continued trimming and tucking all around. When the smoke cleared, I had a working cover! But that didn't last. I noticed some of the folds were too "tight" (like folded paper, not cloth), there was too much "excess" on the bottom, the attachment point at the barrel looked bad, and paint (acrylic) would crack off the whole thing. I fixed the barrel by gluing a strip of plastic bag (folded in half to make it thicker) around the barrel. Fixed the bottom "excess" by cutting it off and slathering super glue mixed with corn starch to blend it all together. At that point I noticed that a slurry of super-glue and corn starch could be dabbed along the ridges of "folds" to make them look more like cloth, not paper. Ended up covering the whole mantlet with super glue and future floor polish to fill gaps, smooth lines and hold paint (which the plastic bag will not do!).
19. November 2013, 14:06
George Bacon By the way, the mantlet no longer "works" to allow gun elevation. :(
19. November 2013, 14:08
George Bacon Brian, the turn buckles were made by super gluing two plastic strips off the end of a plastic rod (like building a little two-tined fork). The strips have been pre-measured to the length of turn buckle you want and are placed on the rod to overlap it a little. The strips are also parallel to each other (i.e. top and bottom of the rod). Once dry, another rod is glued to the other end of the strips (you now have a basic turn buckle in the form of two rods connected by two strips with a gap between the rods). Once again, I used a slurry of super glue mixed with corn starch to blend the connection points between the rods and the strips into a solid connection, and then file to a final "turn buckle shape". Reference pictures of large turn buckles help in the building process!
19. November 2013, 14:29
Brian Geiger Thanks for the details George. And thanks for posting the in-progress shots too. Those are very helpful going along with your explanation. I should take a lesson from you and post some photos.

Sounds like you're getting a lot of use out of your super glue slurry. I like the forgiveness of Mr. Surfacer since you can later wipe it away with Mr. Color Thinner.

The improvements you made add a lot of finesse to the model.

So are you working on the Piranha now? Man, you're not wasting any time. That's awesome. Your Jagdpanzer IV/70(A) turned out fantastic. You don't see many of those, especially with the screen skirts. Superb! I look forward to seeing it in person.
20. November 2013, 06:26
Acki Amazing job, George! Great details, perfect tools. The mantlet is very very good. Thanks for showing. Greetz Acki
20. November 2013, 07:27
Bill Spargo Hey George, have you considered using toilet tissue paper for the same job? Perhaps coating with (PVA white glue for timber joining in Aus). I think it may have done the same result with less problems.
20. November 2013, 09:56
George Bacon Bill, I tried using tissue paper (like is used for flying model airplanes) but had trouble with tearing. I was also thinking (naively) that the plastic bag would allow the gun to elevate :( Think I will give the tissue another try, next time!
20. November 2013, 13:47
Bill Spargo Hi George, tissue used on balsa models etc. is fine and designed to shrink and tighten when dope is applied. That is how the tissue gains its strength. Two types of tissue/towling to try... first paper hand towels, type used for wipping up spills and cleaning windows etc. This type is soft but firm and reasonable strength. Second toilet tissue paper, there are so many brands and grades of tissue paper ... suggest you get one that is soft but firm with a patern that is not too grainy. apply the wood working glue over the tissue.

Frank Krause Hi George,
I'll have a seat and watch. What camouflage have you planned? As on the box or something different?
1. October 2013, 05:02
George Bacon Not sure yet, but I'm thinking about the box art. It's so unusual! I haven't been on Scalemates all summer. It's good to be back!
1. October 2013, 14:16
Frank Krause Glad, you're back! The box art is challenging, but also rewarding once done!
