Hi Guy,

Thanks.

Hi B,

I don't see them featured in the build instructions for the MK IV but I will check the instructiond for the Mk II as I also have that version. I can't see them featured in that build either so probably a question form the Valentine Experts and more investigation.

Sorry haven't updated in a while.

Superb, Alan...

As I see, until now, this kit is very, very superior to the older Dragon or Maquette !!!

Regards and all the best !!!

Alan This is looking real nice. Would you mind posting a close up picture of some of the blistering?

Hi Marcos,

Thanks for looking in and the comments, appreciated.

Hi Jeremy,

Here you go, as close as I can get without things becoming a blur. I used Vallejo model colour crackle medium 598 for the experiment.

Hi Guys,

Apologies, I though I'd posted these up!





Ah, just remembered I sent them in as a photo model:

Sorry, but a couple of pics will finish the blog better.

I'm going through my own Valentine oddyssey at the moment and just finished the Bronco IX, which is based on the Miniart kit. It was, as you mentioned, a really fun build. I've been working on the AFV Vally Mk1 for a few years, and it is a wonderful kit. The new Tamiya II/IV is next, but looks a bit more simplistic compared to the others (definitely nicer than the Dragon/Alan/Maquette though!), but the Bronco/Miniart ones are "fun" for sure.
