Once things strarted to go together a good coat of etch primer was applied to all the parts.
Don't worry about the rusty axles in the background thats my model and its only light surface stuff :oops:
Looks a little better with the proper colours starting to go on...

Great idea of Tim's to leave the cover plates on the clear lenses loose, I just popped them off and stuck masking tape on the reverse side when its painted peel it off and you have a perfectly clear lense...top stuff.
Bogies next.
Cheers Paul :wink:

Hi Paul

Good to see another 88. Looks good already, i can only imagine how good it's going to look when you are done with it.

Kind regards
Tim

Got the basic camo on now "Varicose vain pattern" I think :D leave all this to dry now overnight and I will be able to start the chips and scratches.

Rooting around in my old box of tricks from the custom bike days I found an old roll of pinstriping tape that came in really handy for the kill rings on the barrel, but looks like the crew have had more luck with planes than tanks :)

I have only got to weather the bogies now and wind the cables on and this one can be put to one side ready for collection.

Its been a fun build really and something different if anyone is listening a "pak 43" would be a nice model to have!! I think hint hint Mark :D.
Anyway thats it for today on with the bogies tomorrow I have an appointment today with Mr. Smiths John Smiths ha ha

Hi Paul.
Thats a top paint job you have done there, I realy like the subtle camo pattern you have done. The more i look at that 88 the more detail i see.
Well done
Regards
Steve

I decided to add the flag just a add a bit of colour and life to the model. . . one thing you can't take away from the swatika emblem is it adds a good spash of colour :oops:
This model is really getting down to the final bits now,hope you like it so far.

Paul,
Nice job on the 88 as always! I can only echo what others are saying. Great job on the build and fantastic paint and weathering. I bet that would be fun to build these for others! Great way to get more models in the field!

Thanks for posting,
Bob
