    Behind Enemy Walls - Para 101st

    Post  Noel Petroni on Thu Sep 30, 2010 6:32 am

    This will turn into a small diorama displaying mainly figures with the Zundapp and a fountain well being the main objects

    This Lion Roar (Great Wall Hobby) is a gem! Very detailed and a delight to build!





    The wheels come in 6 parts! Including x2 PE rims!

    Its not a "bike"! It's a motorbike! Powered by an engine! Turbo and reaching speeds of over 300mph. The Zundapp was the fastest bike on the battlefield and could do 200mph on field terrain. It had a crew of 7 and had frontal armour plating of 50cm. If more were produced, it could have changed the tide of war in favor of the Germans. It's main armament was the MG34 machine gun that could fire a fast deadly 1 round per minute

    What you are seeing here is the standard conventional type Zundapp

    More like a panzer 1 Noel....at the most I would figure a crew of 3...two on bike and one in sidecar....

    Nice MOTORbike...

    PS claims of the zundapp changing tide of war are a biut far fetched i think...it wasnt a SHerman after all Twisted Evil

    The KS-750's engine was well designed and could deliver lots of power and torque, so much so that the bike was equipped with a towing hook and it could consequently tow heavy loads behind it...up to 1850 lbs, the bike could even carry 7 persons and their equipment quite easily

    Good question: First of all you need to establish some targets. You need tools such as a good airbrush and about 3 grades of paint brushes. Than you go down to your secret laboratory and switch on your Mega-Hydro force-field shrinking machine to 1:35 scale. It is important to stand in from of the lazer and in the magnet force field radius to obtain an accurate downsizing scale as possible. As soon as you are down sized to scale (you might feel some drowsyness due to the transformation) it's all spray and go. Very easy.

    OR..... forget the shrinking machine and spend a hella lot of time trying to airbrush the damn thing!!!

    YOU GOT A Mega-Hydro force-field shrinking machine?!?!?!?!?!? I've been looking for one of those for over 20 years!

    Anyhow.

    You don't glue everything together before you paint it? Do you leave it in sub-assemblies and then paint the sub-assemblies?
    Because it looks really tight to come close with a AB around the engine.

    So if it is all glued, how do you get to paint the inside of the wheels, the actual wheels behind the chassis frame, etc?
