Photos of progress to date.
Still lots to do.
I left as many hatches and doors open as I could but you can see very little of the detail inside.
If I had your skills, I would be tempted to buy a second kit and craft some side panels out of clear Perspex to show off the inside like they do on real ones in museums.  They've done as good a job with the mouldings as you have sticking them together.  Bloody lovely!

Yes, but only subtle.

I prefer the full on approach to weathering....especially on armour...dirty beasts they were and so should they look.
Only my opinion.

It seems ages since I posted anything WW1 related.
Mr Beesting gave me this Roden 1:48 RA F BE 12b.
I bought a jig similar to the one John had at the last meeting, so I thought How hard can it be.
Well here it is so far.
Assembled and undercoated.

I think Zak is a robot - thats why he needs no sleep.
That has just given me an idea for another cartoon - sorry Zak.

After masking, the upper surface coated in WW1 green - Humbrol !08 is no longer available and so I used Tamiya XF51, it looks ok to me, but I am slightly red/green colour blind slightly, I can see the difference between red and green, but shades of green baffle me.

I have had a disaster with the Roden decals transfers, they broke up, luckily I had some appropriate ones in the spares box.
