Thread: For the Motherland!

Tracks look OK , not an easy build by the sound of it at times.

Its a shame all that internal detail will be lost , will any of it be able to be seen ?

Miniart do make some fantastic models , but at times I do wonder if the level of detail and major sub assemblies is really required, and I do wish they would change their plastic compound .!! What do you think of the plastic now you've come this far ?

Smithy, Behave .teeth 2

You are the last one that should be apologising for not commenting, your original post was about commenting in a different context .

When you full time guys are out all day you don't get the time to spend on here like us part timers .When I ran my workshop before I joined here I had no time for anything .

You get well , and when you feel like it and have time we will all be here, as Andy says " Sticking plastic together and splashing paint about " How Andy knows I do that , ? Did you tell him teeth 2.

Take care mate .

Thanks guys .

Mike ........Yes hrs indeed was fun , not like the faces , just find it so hard .

Peter.........Thanks my friend , I went back to the bench and tidied up the edges of the webbing, using those new brushes, must say they feel right in the hand .

After that it changed the lips on a couple and put a mustache on one as I realised he had one !! Looking much better Right following instructions from Peter , tomorrow I am going to put some lines in on the details of the jackets, the detail on the pink ones is really pronounced , so that should help.

Lifted some what I shall crack on tomorrow afternoon and post the results .

I can't keep a tight line on the webbing for one , chin straps I ve painted over after several attempts . The lips look like , oh I don't know . Photos are just not right either . Sorry a real moan .

Gaz .

Firstly the build is superb, your attention to detail is outstanding and really takes the build to another level.

Thank you for taking the time with info on the camera and settings .I am using a Canon 5 d with a 24 /105 lens . The lens I normally use for landscapes and general stuff Will have a look at a Canon lens eq to the one you use, as the depth of field is always a problem .

Think the set up with the tent looks grand .

Thanks again

Hi and good morning . smiley

Drums look good esp the dented ends showing a bit of wear. The right hand looks more realistic, unless Russian drums were made like those on the left and centre. Yes to the guide please that will be a great help.
