    I am sure most of you are in the same position... Trying to finish those last projects for 2018! I just managed to knock this one off a few moments ago that I started back in March.
     
    As per normal.. Family life, work and another round of back surgery have keep me busy. Having some free time today, I picked this one up an managed to finish it was it was pretty much weathering that I had to complete. It's my 4th Tank I have ever built. Tamiya's 1/35 Jagdpanzer IV /70 Lang. Built from the box, but I did use Kaizen tracks. Painted using Mission Models Paints, Camo was painted free hand. and weathered using AK Interactive Washes and Pigments.

    Sure have! Did it to an 48th Tamiya A6M2b Zero... And have a Tamiya 48th F4U and 32nd IX Spitfire on the go that I am doing this too.

    Yea.. make sure that the motor is 100% inline to drive the prop, or it will shake the crap out of it.

    Use boiling water to fix that.
     
    Tape the wings leading edge to a steel ruler, boil some water and put the wing in a large container with the water and allow it to cool naturally.

    Has this news been publicly announced by Revell? If not, I would take it with a grain of salt, as you could be spreading false rumour! False rumours could hurt sales, and imagine if there were rumours about Fundekals? I bet you wouldn't be happy!

    I did mine free hand... Its a pretty easy camo scheme to do actually. Just work with low pressure and build it up. Excuse the old image! I do need to take a better one that isn't hosted on Photobucket!

    I can relate everything you are going through at the moment and how it affects every aspect of life.
     
    Some people already know over the last two years have been living with chronic back pain and I've had two spine operations this year. I only got the staples removed today from my second op 15 days ago. 
     
    So I wish you the best of luck, listen to what the Surgeon says and don't push yourself even if you feel great. Take all the time you are given to heal, and enjoy the time off. The first 10 days I didn't do much except watch TV & Movies and playing Xbox.  It wasn't around 2-2 1/2 weeks where I could sit at the bench again for short periods of time, I managed to build a 1/35 Tamiya M10 Tank during this time.
     
    Hopefully, this op will address everything and you don't need to go in a second time like me.

    You will find that numbness and the sting will take a while to fully disappear. It's a nerve injury so it can take up to 8-12 months for your nerve to fully recover. From memory, it took about six months for my nerve to heal.
