HI Guys - Me too!
Robert - very nice work on that truck and trailer - funny, with all the detail it looks a bit like monochrome images of a restoration! - and, yes, I too would like to find out more about the detail parts you might have access too - I find myself repurposing stuff all the time!
Hi Angel - wow! the trailer(s) is/are looking great - and man, you seem to build pretty fast too - very nice to see!
Below, the parting shots of my updated HMMWV - I am a bit surprised that there isn't a kit of this somewhere? the front bumper and rear bedwalls are distinctive and not at all like their predecessors...and I think it looks pretty interesting.
Please see final:
And there you have it! yes...there are a few odds and ends to fix - but, mostly done! and...I must have broken the taller antenna, and each of the forward grenade launcher off at least four times along the way!!
Ok - while not exactly a scratch or conversion, certainly a modification or two under way for this T55 AMV....some etch from Eduard and Aber (the Aber stuf btw - is something else - VERY small and pretty nice - very tedious!!!) and many unseen scratch built elements used to hold it all together. The plan was to build it OOB, but no way - too many fun things to try!
Mike - I hope you don't mind me posting this - I'm hoping it's in the spirit of the thread - this will be used in a dio with the GMV
Ok - please take a look:
And there you have it! Clearly, once done this tank will appear to have some hard miles on it - this is my first Takom kit - so far pretty straight forward and good build - I have a few fit problems but nothing too far out of what you'd expect from any kit - the scratch work is scattered throughout-as the PE is for another kit, so, many adjustments, modifications, and not seen brackets, lips etc to allow the various parts go together -
OK, happy model building!
