    .50cal according to Matthew....

    Post  Dottore on Fri Aug 28, 2009 8:46 am

    To some it doesn't make sense to hack up a perfectly good Tasca .50 cal to get to this Frankeinversion but sometimes detailing gets the better of me....some 5 different detail sets used....Tasca, lionmarc, armorscale, eduard, aber....

    Some 16 hours of swearing flew away but I think the end result is well worth it....

    Dottore

    PS still considering addition of a couple of chains and rounds...but PE rounds are anything BUT round!

    Bomba man! Really nice, it is not just having the photoetched but putting it together correctly and you did a magnificent job. I follow Joe's thought, what about the ammo? It would look cool if it were not flat photoetched.

    I would rather like to see you doing the rounds and their minute clips, for a chain of 20 you'll be spending a whole week fiddling for sure ... What a Face

    16hrs on just an MG, you are crazy, so on painting you dedicate a month?

    I'd be shot down for that...the main problem was alligning the cooling jacket to the MG body and the actual muzzle...believe me it will make you swear!!!!!
    Besides the clean up and preparation of the plastic MG to receive the PE....

    Very nice work, Matthew! So realistic!

    Tell Ray that all he has to deal with is an axe or a sword... nothing complicated like this MG (Machine Gun.... for Ray)

    Alex yes I thought the same as you, especially as I just did it to wind him up even more Laughing how I'm enjoying this bashing (mhux ha nigu square vis a vis kemm jaqlghali u jiddiehak b'xi Pirjol hu xorta) Evil or Very Mad

    Insomma biex jibda jingabar mieghi vis a vis "modelling" I would like to see those PE rounds (which are flat) well, ROUND hux at least Cool

    At Alex....I actually didnt check again cousin...for I did enough checking...and rechecking...and glueing...and reglueing....so yes I can bet my remaining two hair follicles that it is straight in the x, y and z axis....( meaning in all directions Ray! Very Happy )

    At Ray....remember when Mike (?) Blank was commenting on Pirjol at Girona...couldn't help running away laughing....out of that great peice all he said was ...the bible is well painted!!!!!!!!!!

    At Tank Red...yes it will be painted but nothing beats the actual jacket MG perforations as opposed to plastic (apart from Tasca) solid cooling jackets...and PE subtlety is hard to beat in plastic trust me!

    At Samwel...good to meet you at pv mate...
