Dear gents,

Im calling the build finished!

finished build 1.jpg
finished build 2.jpg
finished build 3.jpg
I've made a cover from Greenstuff and straps from paper, behind the cabin.

Beside of the flimsy plastic, IBG did a nice job with this kit!
The only thing I didnt like was their pulleys, but luckely these were included with the PE parts.
Altough the etch was a lot of work and sometimes frustrating, Im quite happy with the end result.

Hopefully it will all stay put when I start painting / weathering the whole thing.

Enjoy your sunday!

Sjors

Hi Sjors,

Looks good to me, the additional photo etched parts has improved the kit greatly. Very tempting to add one of the kits and etch set to the stashsmile p

Ps..don’t forget to add the wheels face 20wink 2

Hi Sjors,

What a cracking build in braille scale. The PE must have been a nightmare, I have difficulty in 1/35 .

The PE really enhances the kit.

Hi Sjors

A great build. Even more impressive taking into account it is 1/72.

Terrific work on the small stuff. Etch is difficult at the best of times but at this scale you have done a terrific job. Look forward to the paint work.

Well done on getting the building done bud, PE in and around the cab sets of the Diamond T really well thumbs up, 1/72nd scale and PE frightens me to death .Looking forward to some paint and then the figures wink 2.
