    Post  Guest on Wed Sep 29, 2010 12:17 am

    Hi to all.. in my first post here I told that i usually build airplanes of II WW...
    Here is an exception..
    This is my last work... What do you think about? I'm not a super modeller .. Here I have admired many great works... very far compared to my.. Anyway it's a reproduction of a launcher with three missiles Hawk.. kit Revell 1/32.
    The kit comes only with missiles and launcher of US army.. I opted for the version of the Esercito Italiano..








    Excuse me for photos.. I used my phone.. Embarassed Embarassed

    I love artillery pieces specially those that are made to bring down flying things Twisted Evil
    As others just suggested images are a bit out of focus but what I surely notice is apart that looks like a clean solid built, IMHO the lower part would benefit more with some weathering, especially the wheel area. Pigments and some washes would help to add that touch ...
    Keep them coming amico!

    What do you mean exactly by "wheel area"?

    The wheels, tyres, behind them and the lower carriage area.
    In my eyes I find it too clean for something that is in touch with ground and road.

    You may be right but I think.. not too dirty.
    I took inspiration from real photos, then you must keep in mind that the launcher did not move a lot.
    The launcher once placed in his area did not move many times a year.
    However I'll keep in mind your advice. Thanks!! Very Happy

    Yes I agree, surely these things do not collect that much weathering as a car or a tank; but that little dust effect, especially between the tyre treads to get the detail standing out might add that extra touch.
    These effects are just like make-up, helping out make the objects stand out... makeup work great on women so why not also on models Laughing
    I guess this Revell model was not a straight forward easy built?
    Keep them coming Marco!
