Re: Dave B's Quad

Hi All,

Just a quick up date today. Finally, all one colour and a matt varnish coat added pre decals and weathering, hence no spare on the rear roof. Added the chassis and Limber for the photos. 25 pounder needs more work before ready for the camera.

Regards

Dave

Re: Dave B's Quad

Hi All, Another productive weekend over and the weather was hot and sunny, ideal for a spot of spraying. So now I have a quad in one colour although I still need to spray the rear roof, just waiting for the weather to improve again. What is it with the weather here, one minute its hot and sunny and ...

Re: Dave B's Quad

Hi All, Just completed the 25pounder ring roof support/clamp, which was very intricate but very enjoyable. Just need to order some more fixing bolts the right size and the push handle. Not too much more to do now with regards the build only the final small details such as the mirrors and wipers. Reg...

Re: Dave B's Quad

Hi Adrian, Thanks for the kind comment. I would suggest, but happy to be corrected, that this lifts the 25ponder ground ring off the guides. As I think the Quad could carry the ring on the roof, however not sure how they got it up there in the first place as I would imagine that it would be a heavy ...

Re: Dave B's Quad

Hi all, Just a quick up date. Finished the rear details, although just have to add the bolt detail. Moving on to the roof next before the weather warms and dries up so I can complete the paint and weathering. Should have the Quad finished before the end of the summer, then need to weather the Limber...

Re: 25 Pdr Paint & Weathering Tutorial

Good evening Keith,

Weathering is a step that can make or break a model and after all the time invested in these models, a tutorial on weather would be most welcome.

Re: Armorteks next model

Hi All,

What about a Matilda 1. A cracking little tank that will be easy to transport and something a little different from the heavy weights

Re: Dave B's Quad

Hi All, Don't you just love the warm summer days, perfect for adding some colour to the bare metal and you get the sense of things to come and the vision of the final colour. Finished and painted the chassis with a few extra bits. I will now turn my full attention to the body with the plan to comple...

Re: Bergepanther "A" build log.

Hi Phil,

Following a number of your builds and impressed with the engine bays and details you add.

If you don't mind me asking, where do you get your accessories from, i.e. tools, shackles etc.

Regards
