Thread: HOW many wheels?!!
12/11/2017 13:42:26

A`noon guys,

Some progress has been made on this one,but firstly.....

Paul,Cheers mate,much appreciatedthumbs up,

Mr.R.Thank you very much Sir! It really is a great little kit,typical Tamiya-good fun,and a good fitteeth 2,

Simon,Thanks mate! Pm`d you,as you know,i hope you`re have a less frantic time of it at the mosmile o!

Steve,Yeah,wheels touching all at once is always a concern!! Thanks for the compliments Buddyembarrassed!!

Well then,a last pic of the underside before it`s uprighted for good.......


Didn`t go overboard with the weathering as it won`t be seen,apart from here and there! Front end bits mostly on..


Some touch up required in places,then the final weathering can start,next,load bed on..........



Wheels still need detailing like the front one`s,lastly for now,a lightened pic to try and show some details that you do see of the nether regions!!........


So,there you have it so far,nearing the finish now,some stowage to add,and then load bits,with 3 figures.

Thanks for looking in,as always,any thoughts,ideas or plain old abuse,more than welcomedface 20face 20,

A`noon Dave,

Blimey..... you certainly didn`t hang around on this one ehsmile o?!!

Liked the look of this kit from the start,and now,seeing it built up,it`s shot to the top of my "Wanted" list!

A`noon Tim,

Been watching this from the shadows,gotta say it`s coming along very nicely,some great touches on the interior`s paintwork matethumbs up.

The StuG is,without a doubt my favourite German AFV of WW2...... there`s just a different "menacing" and "meaness" about them compared to other Tanks etcnerd,

Anyway,great stuff indeed,i look forward to seeing this progress.

..... Back!!......

Right then,before the pics,i`d like to address all the "Lurkers" who may be looking in,(Although that sounds a bit sinister to medisgust,why you can`t just be called "occasional viewers",i don`t knowface 22!!), in response to an ongoing thread at the mo. DON`T be put off by my "POST COUNT"..... that just means i talk too much! Also,the "PHOTO COUNT"....... just take a look at the one`s coming up,(and in my "Albums" if you like),..... and you`ll see it means NOTHING ......yeah,quite a few picssmile o........ but i`m still crap!! So don`t hide.......JOIN IN thumbs up!!

(That was a partyparty broadcast from Smythe Towersface 20face 20face 20),

The COMPLETED build....Side view.....


Various stages of painting/weathering already going on,but only due to build process,next......


Arse end there......and a very happy Smithy with just dropping on the load bed and all brackets touchingrose!!


Down the tother side there,and now we move around to the front......


Well,ok,not EXACTLY the front...... but it is the other frontface 22!! Finally,("Thank God for that", i can hear you all sayface 20) not only the head on pic,BUT..... the WORST pic!!!!


So there you have it,it`s been a pleasure of a kit to build...... now it`s just left to me to completely ruin it with my painting!!!devil

Thanks for looking in,and as ever,any thoughts,tips,or good old abuse is totally welcomedthumbs up
