Bitten by a Mosquito!

Wolf, bows the Eduard nose gun set have good ammo shutes? If not great I can let you have the ones from the Barracuda's set I have....Harv

Thanks Harv, that's very generous of you. The Eduard nose gun set has a beautiful set of chutes with it as well as a whole bunch of other stuff. It is very comprehensive and incredibly detailed. As soon as I get a little further along with it I'll post pictures. I also have the BarracudaCast feed chutes which are quite nice as well.

 

Cheers,

Wolf

Hey Martin, where do you find all these great pics?

 

Do you have some secret stash or something?

 

Looking forward to more updates Wolf, Chuck.

Martin is a master at finding photos on the ol' interweb. Very helpful indeed too.

 

Hopefully I'll have another update soon. The nose guns are currently in the works and there's a lot of work to be done on them but it'll all be worth it in the end. No more posts from me now until there's pics to post. :)

 

Cheers,

Wolf

Nose gun ammunition cans...........how to spend a lot of time working with very small pieces!

 

I've made a little bit of progress on Eduard's nose gun assembly. These parts are extremely detailed and the chains that prevent the locking pins from falling down and disappearing on the armourers are incredibly small. No way I could have worked with them without my magnifying lamp. :mental:

 

Eduard provides all the data stencil decals, chains, photo-etch, and as you can see, four separate ammo canisters as opposed to Tamiya's three piece ammo canister assembly. Eduard's set is a huge step up, detail wise, for the nose gun assembly. Well worth the money in my opinion.

 

Cheers,

Wolf

Sweet! (as usual).  Did you use Tamiya semi-gloss clear lacquer after painting, like you advised me to?  I am now a HUGE fan of the stuff, so thanks for the tip!

Those look amazing Wolf. My first thought was that you had completely gone to town on the kit ammo cases until I read your posting. 

 

I'd consider them but mine is all done. Well, the nose gun bay is. :whistle:

That looks REALLY really good Wolf.

 

Very crisp details and I love how your painting technique makes everything just "POP"!

 

Nice work.

Thanks Chuck! I did indeed use Tamiya's semi-gloss clear as a final coat to seal everything in. I rarely use a dead flat finish anymore. The last coat is literally blushed on to give it a slight sheen just off dead flat. It looks way better in my opinion.

 

Cheers,

Carl, ChuckT, Harv,

 

Thanks for checkin' in guys. Always a pleasure and it's great to have another set of eyes (or 3) to check my work and see if it needs any adjustment. That's one thing I really appreciate about the digital camera. It shows everything but sometimes it takes another viewer to catch something I have missed. The ol' forest for the trees kind o' thing.

 

Cheers,

Wolf

100% certifiably insane levels of realism and goodness..

 

tuning in here Wolf is like visiting the twilight zone - you think it's real, it certainly looks it......    but it just can't be...

 

it's a religious experience - a bit like witnessing a miracle..

 

I am off to wipe the drool from my person....
