Thread: 2017 Small Scale Group Build (SSGB17)
20/01/2017 13:49:52

As well as the T-55, I have had the time to return to some older models sitting waiting for some paint for perhaps more years than I should admit to. smile p

First one for Pail E in particular, the Minitanks 1/87 M932. This was in a drawer, and I found the black kit tyres were sticky, deteriorating with age. So, a quick coat of paint seems to have sealed them quite nicely...

Then a 1/76 resin kit by Gramodels, the Char 2C (not finished yet)...

Hi all,

It's great to see so many small scale builds coming along, this is great. teeth 2

Just to get up to date with my T-55, it has gone a long way, just some final weathering to be done. It went together very nicely, especially the link and length tracks which worked well. A few very small parts to be careful not to lose, especially the lifting hooks on the turret. So, under construction...
