Thread: Kettenkraftrad, 1/48scale ( Des GB18) JR

Hi John

The little Ketten and its trailer is looking good. Palm trees, fronds and trunk, are coming on a treat. Mind you at this stage the trunk does look a bit like something adventurous couples get delivered in plain wrapping thinking face 20

Hi Ron

The wrecking of the building is very convincing and with the rubble piled up it will be a perfect backdrop for the Abrams.

Hi David

Well I for one reckon you have done a superb job with this. The huge amount of work has resulted in a very nice figure of a very unusual subject.

So was it worth the time and effort - yes wink 2. As for the other two - up to you but you have shown what can be done.

Wishing you well for the surgery.

Hi Si

I will follow with interest. I built this a few years ago and seem to remember the tiny track links drove me demented face 20

Hi Gary

Interesting history. Long life - 1966 to the present. The kit looks quite a challenge with almost 550 parts but that makes for great detail I suppose. I hope the fit is good with that degree of complexity.

Chassis looks superb.

Hi Dave

I reckon the mesh looks great, worth the effort. The paint job looks very good. I wish you well attaching the mesh screens.

Hi Tim

Love the background info, love Rudyard Kipling's poem and love these figures. Excellent detail for such small figures. Interesting process with the oil wash. Look forward to more.

Hi David

A warm welcome to MilMod. Can't really comment on the paints for your particular kit but before you go out and spend a fortune bear in mind that often a kit instructions will flag up a paint which is only used for one tiny area, maybe you can live without it. Another thing to think about is whether you could mix a paint colour. For example if the instructions say you need a black, a dark grey, a light grey and a white then maybe the light grey could be made from the dark grey and white. OK some modellers, you may be one of them, really like to get the paint colour exact. Deciding what is an exact colour can open a real can of worms face 20

Another consideration is whether you will be brush painting or using an airbrush as some paints work better for different applications. Let us know how you will be painting your model and the guys can help.

Yes there are sets of paints from many manufacturers for particular situations. Whether they are a lot cheaper I'm not sure and they will only have the main colours so you may still need others.

I am also colour blind. A real bummer at times but I have a very helpful wife.

Do share your 109 build on the forum. You will get loads of encouragement and help. We pride ourselves on being friendly and supportive so take the plunge.

Above all remember why we model - TO HAVE FUN wink 2

John - bought it *HERE*

Si - the book has some useful stuff. Photos are nice. The translation is not as good as I first thought. Perfectly understandable for the most part but a bit clumsy - at times you have to think about what is meant. Worth buying.

Jim

John - not only useful in the old gluing department but allows you to indulge in a little pyromania as well. Win - win face 20

Bought this book. Looks good, quite comprehensive and not too expensive. English translation seems OK too. With Eduard and Adam Wilder on board it should help with an aspect of the hobby that can cause tears of frustration thinking

It is one of a series so if it proves helpful I may buy a few more.
