    izhorsky BA-1 1/35 EASTERN EXPRESS (

    Post  alexbb on Sun Mar 18, 2012 8:57 pm

    At last i managed to finish this one. temptation to smash this model against a wall, pick up the pieces and shred them into granules and then burn and bury the ashes six feet under where great but i resisted.the kit by eastern express is a lie except for the turret the model is a mix and match of 4 different versions none of which the model on the box art (just about the only decent thing of the lot)
    anyway here are some pics. anything which is not grey is scratched except for the wheels which are tank workshop and do not deserve the disgrace of being stuck to this horrible piece of plastic.























    now a good clean up and some primer

    at last after more than a year im building something again

    Prosit Alex, Very Happy

    A very good job indeed. Basketball

    Just one question, I see that you have added the rivets. From where do you purchase the rivets ? and how do you fix them in place - using super glue? Question

    I am asking, as I need hundreds of those thing for my ship and they seem to bethe correct size. Rolling Eyes

    Just can't wait to see your model ready for action. cheers

    tks all
    paul follow the link with this method you can do round rivets to your hearts desire for hex rivets i would suggest WALDRON PUNCH AND DIE if it were not so hard to find

    Rivets...

    Brass rivets...round and hex...different sizes...

    http://www.scalehardware.com/

    I just yesterday purchased a hex punch and die from this site...even there Photoetch folding tool looks quite nice...

    www.steelmodels.com

    Waldron puch and dies are virtually impossible to find. Historex don't do them anymore either as I was told at last Euro...
