    Bronco Staghound

    Post  Noel Petroni on Sun Oct 07, 2012 11:40 am

    Hi Guys,

    This is my current build in progress. To try and get my mojo back I shifted from the room on the roof to downstairs complete with new workbench!

    Here are two photos of before and after of the staghound turret:

    @ Ivan - Well almost ready! Just a few more little pieces and I'll start planning the painting and what colours to use. A couple of figures but no dio for this one.

    @ Brian - the casting of Staghound turrets was very textured which was not represented in the kit. I used Revell putty to form the texture because the Tamiya putty I had, hardened while I was hibernating.

    @ Aw! Tancred..... up for a coffee and model talk to get our mojo going?

    Great to see some of your work. Like what youve done to the turret so far. I use Mr Surfacer 500 for casting effects...

    PS have couple of metal barrels for that 37mm if it can help your mojo... Twisted Evil

    I've been searching the net but found no colour plates!! So it has to be in the usual British Drab (still have to research the colour)

    Hi Noel, Very Happy

    I see that you are back to modelling, and woring on the staghound.
    I would like to see the good old German cross on that, so please make the verion, the German captured during the Ardennes offensive.

    Cheers.

    More work on the Staghound:

    It will be probably Canadian and with lots of stowage! Much more than in the picture!

    That is a really cool setup. Love the way the figures interact with the vehicle.
