Re: John’s Czech Hedgehog

Not being happy with the rust decided to repaint in very dark blue. Looks almost black. I’ll leave it this way for a while while deciding what to do about rust.

Re: John’s Czech Hedgehog

Not sure about the rust. May need a little bit more work.

Re: John’s Czech Hedgehog

Just add rust. 😁 Primed, textured paint applied and the Tamiya matt paint mixed to the approximate shade of dark blue used in the east.Decided to not go with the brown as used on the beaches it is so commonly seen in models despite not being the colour used often inland. Work done in filling in the ...

Re: John’s Czech Hedgehog

Applied putty to the button head bolts. A light sanding then ready for priming. Used Green Stuff putty which I find so much better than Milliput and much easier to work with. Could never go back to Milliput. Makes nice weld detail as well. Fitted a few hex head bolts instead of the button head bolts...

Re: John’s Czech Hedgehog

The bolt patterns do seem to vary a lot. Found a photo of two sitting side by side and they had been bolted together differently. May make some minor changes and will be fitting a few hex head bolts as again found photos where a few hex head bolts had been used. Two sections were fastened together i...

Re: John’s Czech Hedgehog

Assenbled and I think I’ve got the bolt pattern right. 🙏🏼 Also tested the textured paint on some scrap. Will look good once the final colour is applied and rusted a bit. https://i.postimg.cc/G2bfq83J/9-E59-B259-1674-4-DE1-9-CFE-9-ED72-AE68-F8-C.jpg https://i.postimg.cc/SRB7137F/AE661620-0-DBB-4-A2-A...

John’s Czech Hedgehog

Received the little hedgehog kit this morning. Looks a nice little “weekend” kit.Bought just the one for now to see what it’s like. I’ll be finishing mine in the very dark blue as often used in the east rather than the beach brown. Filling in the button head bolts with putty will be a bit tedious. S...

Re: Dunkelgelb - what colour (color)?

Came across this info a while ago based on spectroscopic analysis of original paint and they mixed Tamiya paint to duplicate the original colour as accurately as possible. Of course given the colour variations of the original paint would’t be accurate for everything but at least would be accurate fo...

Re: Working early Tiger 1 headlamps?

Steve Winstone makes a fantastic set of working lights. Not cheap but worth every penny. Just email him and ask for a copy of his catalogue. steve.winstone@sky.com He also makes a lot of other very desirable parts.
