    WHAT????????? A SCRATCHBUILT MG????????? ALEX, WHY DIDN'T YOU CONSULT YOUR VENERABLE COUSIN RE THIS?????????? You could have spent just 17hrs to roll a perforated sheet of PE and avoided the SCRATCHBUILDING!!!!!!!!!!

    lol! lol! lol! lol! lol! lol! lol!

    Ray there were no perforated PE just small PE attachments to pre-fabricated hollow brass barrels + plastic ... just to justify the process bom

    But have to say it is very much more complicated to fabricate then any other MG around ...

    ADDING DEATAILS AND THE DREADED RIVETS

    Post  alexbb on Thu Aug 26, 2010 11:13 pm

    FINISHED MOST OF THE DETAILING ON THIS ONE. I HAVE TO SAY I WAS NEVER FELT SO DEPRESSED AS REGARDS TO APPLYING RIVETS AS ON THIS ONE. well over 900 revets of 4 different sizes compunded by this hateful and unbearable humid heat every rivet cost me sweat and almost tears.

    the wheels where re modelled and re cast



    detailing





























    note wheels are only temporarily stuck, they need cleaning
    next mud guards, wheels and headlamps

    IF I WHERE AN EXAMPLE OF CLEAN CONSTRUCTION I WOULD. ONE OF THE MAIN REQUIREMENTS FOR AN UNPAINTED SCRATCHBUILT MODEL IS THE CLEANLINESS AND PRECISE CONSTRUCTION. ON THESE MODELS FILLER AND SANDING MARKS ARE A NO GO.

    maybe one day, WHEN PIGS LEARN TO FLY

    NONETHELESS THANK YOU GUYS

    Looking great Alex, all the detailing has sure paid off. Can't wait to see some paint on it but then i suppose that neither can you. That's when the fun part starts.

    paintwork

    Post  alexbb on Wed Sep 01, 2010 11:43 am

    the model was given a black pre shadeing as guideline to the grey green colour. the model will not be painted in the usual 4bo colour but in the much earlier grey green.







    heavily diluted tamiya xf56 acryllic was used as the first dark base, after which tamiya deck tan was gradualy added to the basic colour. this was done in four coats increasing the ammount of deck tan after each coat.

















    next i will pick out the details such as tools exhaust etc and will start filters washes and general weathering

    apologies for the photos today is one of those days when me and my camera are not on speaking terms
