    My first model is done!

    Post  jojjemannen on Wed Sep 10, 2014 8:22 pm

    Hi,

    I've completed my first model, with one exception, and that is the tracks.
    I lost a few pieces of the tracks supplied with the kit, so I used some rubber tracks that I found in my stash. And I haven't painted or fixed them since my longterm plan is to replace the tracks. If I just leave the tracks as they are I will soon be so annoyed with watching it on the shelf with that setup that I'll force myself to replace them.

    I can see that the colors I've used doesn't match that good, the color difference is too huge and a bit sharp.

    well done Tiny, what I suggest just add a bit of dusting on the upper deck and roof and will be spot on ... Prosit Tiny!

    Thanks for all the comments! And yes, it could use some touchups but I took the decition that if I don't mark it finished then I'll never finish a model!
    It's on the shelf and awaiting more touchups in a year or two!

    "A comment from a Malteese is worth more then two from a Swede" - Joseph - 2014.09.15

    I brought the model to the local IPMS club here in Sweden and I got the feeling that when they say "Well done", they just say it to be nice.
    But when you guys comment my build you're never afraid to say "It looks good, but you could have done this or that better" .. That's why I value your comments much higher then my fellow Swedes.
