Wojciech Kucza It's definitely a nice paint job! I think I like the light green shade more, than one I have on my Strv!
10. November 2017, 22:31
Patrick Hagelstein I concur with Wojciech, a beautiful paint job and you nailed the colors exactly!
11. November 2017, 03:53
Andreas Thanks! I used Mr Paint and they're supposed to be a quite close match to reality. That paint mask I had didn't work out for me so I ended up masking by hand.
11. November 2017, 05:54
Patrick Hagelstein I just ordered a bunch of colors with Mr. Paint after having tested the orange combination specially designed for the F-16AM Solo Display. I'm looking forward on using them! Any tips on pressures, cleaning and thinning?
11. November 2017, 08:33
Andreas Not really actually, I'm using a low budget compressor and H&S Ultra and haven't had any issues with it, and I haven't thinned it at all, just out of the bottle. Have been cleaning my AB with both AB-cleaner (Vallejo) and with acrylic thinner (Tamiya) with various results, but since it's a lacquer color it usually needs more than the AB-cleaner...

If they weren't so smelly I'd use them all the time...
11. November 2017, 14:26
Jose Costa Andreas, are those paints really that smelly? I was tried to buy some...nice to know about that.
And by the way..smelly or not, Great Work there ;)
18. November 2017, 22:47
Andreas Well, they smell a lot more than acrylics that's for sure, but not worse than I can sit in my living room when using them, of course with a spray booth with fans. I haven't been able to use them with brush, they're too thin. But they're great, good coverage and nice shades.

Darren Hazes I'm having a problem with my project. Notice those bars at the side of the tank above the suspension. I have no clue what those round bars are and why they are stacked there. Could somebody help me by telling their purpuse?
13. May 2017, 22:52
Clint Mecham Gun cleaning rammers or maybe camo netting supports???
14. May 2017, 01:14
Patrick Hagelstein Hi Darren, those are parts for the floatation screen. For crossing rivers a canvas 'bucket' could be built up around the tank. The tracks were used for propulsion.
14. May 2017, 01:17
Clint Mecham Ah. Makes sense.
14. May 2017, 01:18
14. May 2017, 01:20
Darren Hazes thank you patrick, i was talking about this tank with some friends of mine and we came to the conclusion that it truly was an Ikea tank. so many extras and major improvements, it's quite remarkable what the swedes did with their tank.

Ulf Petersen Hi Wojciech!
This is an absolutely fascinating vehicle. I can understand that you "instantly fell in love with" it! :)
One of these Stridsvagns is exhibited in the German tank museum in Munster. I am there quite often (and call it "my second living room" ;)) and I never miss to pay this tank my special attention.
So carry on with this interesting project! So far you did a top job with all the brass stuff I can't wait to see your model grow.
13. April 2016, 05:31
Wojciech Kucza Hi Ulf!
Many thanks for the kind words!
I'll be sure to see the real thing one day :)
So far it's going nicely - even though Trumpeter didn't make it easy on ejector marks. Now I have to solder front brackets, because their quite complex shape is not well suited for CA glue.
13. April 2016, 18:22
Bart Goesaert nice build so far... will you make this one in the splinter camo?
30. November 2016, 11:05
Achim Ribbe Gee thats a interesting tank...hm are you sure about the green colour?
30. November 2016, 11:21
playtime 222 Plenty of video of this on The Mighty Jingles youtube channel as he just visited the Swedish Tank museum. Unique.
30. November 2016, 11:27
Wojciech Kucza @Bart - yes it wil be in splinter camo, it just have to be as unique as the tank ;)

@Achim - I'm quite sure about the green because it's just the primer so in no way it resembles the original thing. I will soon start the proper painting :)

I might actually see those videos, because what reference I have are from Belgian museum and I must say that I disagree with some details and paintjob. They are understandable for a museum piece, but shouldn't be present on a service vechicle. I'll see if I'm right or wrong :)
30. November 2016, 18:15
Wojciech Kucza Thanks, I wonder how it'll look like after all the filters and washes :)
27. March 2017, 21:58
Bart Goesaert looks very good like that...
28. March 2017, 07:01
Jose Costa Greatttt....another S Tank building :)
You and Andreas at the same time, lots to learn...and a growing weal t start my own :)
Great job
27. April 2017, 22:35
28. April 2017, 03:55
Wojciech Kucza Thanks a lot :) And as I was able to see, though we use mainly the same kits and detail sets, we have a little different approach :) SO far the S-103 is painted with decals applied, varnished and filters are applied. However I didn't have time recently to make wash yet... But it's coming, it's coming :)

Bart Goesaert nice kit, most "difficult" part is the cleanup of the hose at the back. Some kits seem to have a serious misalignment problem (I have two of these, one perfectly cast, and the other.. lets say that I need to replace most rods by styrene rod...)
28. October 2016, 07:47
Przemek Przybulewski Hi Bart, Thank you for the tip. To be honest I didn't check the part to close. I will have to verify them, hoping that my kit is OK. It's quite old, so fingers cross that moulds were still good.
