1/35 IBG Scammell Wrecker (4)

Hi all, this will be the last update for this project. I have finished the weathering phase and I think it’s finished. It’s not the best project I have build. One of the reasons is that I had problems to glue the parts together and that was the reason I had put this project on the shelf of doom. But when the Turkey Shoot started I put it back on the table and working along with more does give more motivation and finally I have manged to close this project. The only thing to do is give the model a final coat of matt varnish.

The final pictures:

The final day of the Turkey Shoot weekend on Fory Models. It’s time to start the weathering. I use most of the time clay washes, pigments and inkt.

Most of the times I start with inkt. When that’s dry then I make a pallet from clay washes I want to use for a project, as I do have different colors.

Al thought the Turkey Shoot is finished, I did not manage to finish this project.

This the second day of the Turkey Shoot event on Flory Models.

After a night of sleep I sprayed on the chipping fluid. I do have two bottles from different compagnies and I will test if the do the samen or if there wil be a difference between both products.
 

The fluid has to dry before you can put on the final color. I chose to spray on a grey color.

After 20 minutes a started with chipping. I used a stiff brush and some warm water.

And … is there a difference between both products? I can’t see the difference. The paint was easy to remove, sometimes a bit to easy but the result is ok.

A new update from the painting stage. I have decided to make a civil after war vehicle with some bath maintenance.

The first stap is to paint on Vallejo Frimer UK bronze. I did use a paintbrush to paint it on because it doesn’t need to be need.

When the paint is dry I will make some scratches and more with the colors I show below. After that is will spray on some chipping fluid.

Uses the colors above to doe some pre-chipping. Before I will spray on the chipping fluid when I have thought about the final color on the wrecker.

Hello,

at the moment there is a Turkey shoot on Flory models. I decided to pick up a kit that I had started a while ago. But I had problems with gluing the parts, because after a while the parts felt of and I good not find the right glue. After some search on Google I found out that the plastic is not the same as in most models kits. Finally got a bottle of Plastic Magic glue and that did the job. In between I also got the Scammell Pioneer from Thunder Models and there is some discussion about the faults in the IBG kit. For my not a problem.

First I will show some older pictures I made during the build process:

The kit is build out of the box. The only thing I did was using a fine saw to make the wood parts a bit more grainy.

Yesterday I started with preparing the parts for the primer coat.

The primer I use is from Vallejo and works fine for my.

75mm Nutsplanet Traitor Basford, Chief of Ettin Fanatics

Hi there,

a new post with a different topic. I had bought some fantasy figures from Nuts Planet. I start building and painting them a while ago, but I had a crash with the computer and as I’m a bit lazy I forgot to back-up the files although I do have a NAS server and enough drive space.

That means that I only do have the pictures I took from the finished figures.

The first figure is named Traitor Basford, Chief of Ettin Fanatics. The picture of the box is taken form the site of Nuts Planet.

And this is what I made of it:

1/10 Nuts Planet Indian Home Guard (1)

Last weekend I was at SMC in Veldhoven. It’s a large modelshow with a lot to see and to buy. On of the thing I pick up was a bust from Nuts Planet. It’s not my first bust of this manufacture and the other I have do have a great fit and are very detailed with not much to clean. As  the kits are not cheap you expect also a good quality but  when I opened this kit I was a bit disappointing as the parts had a lot of flesh and the fit was terrible, I had to use a lot of filler to fit the arms to the body. I had almost the idea that I had bought a bootleg in an original case. But there is always a way to go and I cleaned the parts and put the body and arms together. Normally I would have paint them separate but with the filling is was not possible.

First step was painting the face and eyes. I used colors from Citadel and Jo Sonja and followed the picture on the box.

Today I started with base coating the other parts. As it was a bit difficult to find good paint reference for the shirt I mixed some colors together that I thought would make up the right color.

I had build this kit a long time ago but was not happy with the result so finally I through it in the garbage bin. A year ago I saw the kit for just 10 euros on a stand at a meeting and though why not.

The build started almost directly but finishing is not the best part of myself. But things can change and I have the drive to finish some older project so this one is also finished.

I painted with Vallejo color, weathering with Flory Model clay washes and oil colors from Abteilung 502.

This one is finished, but still a lot to go 😉

1/35 Hasagawa Hitachi Zaxis 135

Hello,

I have been a bit offline for several reasons. In the meantime I build two Hasagawa kits. Hasagawa has a serie kits excavators. The first one I build was the Zaxis 135TP. This Double Arm Working Machine Astaco Neo has two arms, a grabber/digger and a snipper arm. I made both arms but finaly decided only to use the grabber/digger arm as the other arm only fell down every time and I didn’t like it.

The second kit is the Excavator Z Axis 135 US. It’s the same base, only this one is provided with a excavator bucket and dozer blade.

Thanks for watching.
