For teeny-tiny too-small-for-tweezers photo-etch, I recommend a wax pencil. Might still be impossible, but maybe slightly less impossible? 🙂

Adrian, thanks for your recommendation and I will have a try later.

Decided to build this ancient warrior over the weekend. Initially planned to build OOB and paint it as a one-weekend challenge, but I couldn't help adding to it!

Great to see the old Tamiya kits get some love, they are fun to build. Sadly I've ruind myself with the endless accuracy race. Did you paint it with the details like tools and helmet on?
19. August, 12:16
Adrian Forest
Yes, everything's on there. I would usually paint things separately but I wanted to keep things simple. The helmets and stowage will all get painted after the camo is finished.

Looking really good!
22. August, 06:07
Lenny V
Nice, you have a steady hand. Looks great! And certainly saves some time.
22. August, 12:49
Adrian Forest
Lenny: the camo is airbrushed, but the stowage/accessories are hand-painted. Definitely needed to wear my glasses!
22. August, 12:55
Lenny V
Well the result shows, looks fantastic! What are the straps on the "luggage" made of?
28. August, 10:22
Adrian Forest
The straps are very thin strips of Tamiya tape. Same for the helmet straps attaching the helmets to the turret lifting hooks.

Thanks for all the kind words.?

Well it's to the point that I call it done. There's a few minor issues I could of fixed, but it's fine for my shelf. As always I appreciate constructive criticism.

Neuling
Sorry, no criticism possible here. A very good build in every aspect. Great attention to every detail and to realistic appearance, nothing overdone. 👍

Neuling, I love your work as well. Thank you for the kind words sir.

This kit tooling is 50 years old this year! It's not great accuracy-wise, but it's still a great Tamiya build, and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to a novice modeller!

looks fantastic

Thank you mates! I like to work with models, when assembling which you need to add something from yourself. I like to make homemade parts and structural elements. Coloring is also an interesting stage, but it is difficult for me to achieve the desired result in weathering! It turned out in this work and I like the result myself)

You certainly turned the Ark model kit into something exceptional!

How's the build on this kit? I'd love to build an Ausf. D but I keep hearing this kit isn't great!
18. August, 00:48
Dmitry Melnikov
Adrian, the build took a long time, but with very long breaks. There are no photos of the process before painting

I agree with all of the above, very nice!
