Thought I'd kick the year off be posting a couple of images of this tribute to Edgar Brooks.
I began this build during the GB but stalled when I got distracted.
During the holidays I have been able to re-visit it and finally finish my tribute to Edgar. Better late than never.
Hope you enjoy the end result.
I had hoped to be able to display the model all buttoned up but the intake under the nose does n't want to come off anymore.
I managed to batter the kit stencils into submission but chickened out with the larger markings which were masked and painted. sluggo kindly provided the masks which worked beautifully, thanks Randy.
The cannon are metal items and fitted perfectly. Really a top notch product.
Also, the wheels are resin items from Barracuda studios. Excellent product and heartily recommended.
The finish is Tamiya AS whizz can with a coat of clear gloss lacquer over it from Montana Gold spray cans.
I then toned that down in places with Valejo satin varnish before weathering with various mediums from Games Workshop inks through water colour pencils to pastel chalks.
I finally gave up trying to use Photobucket and reverted to Joomeo but it's a while since I use that site so hope the images show up for everyone.
Any comments, good or bad, are most welcome.
