Now for some light relief, superb Tamiya engineering i had the kit trundling along the carpet in two evening sessions, made me smile

I think I'll do a captured German machine that has funky camo similar to this Youtube build

Tamiya also has an R/C Unit version of this kit out as well.

 

The first release just had the electric motor and on/off switch with no vehicle control really.

 

I love these things!

hello fellows

 

Had some great fun with this kit, lots of firsts for me and my new airbrush, did some colour modulation, some free hand camo which I'm not sure is good enough for a plane but looks good on a dirty tank

 

Mix of German grey and sea grey

Modulation:ph34r: but too much maybe

Up next is waiting for the masking set for the German markings, weathering the un-hitching beam, then full dirt and rusting

 

thanks

yeah the paint scheme is, in my opinion, really cool I'm always drawn to German colours

 

I used old school pastels for the tracks plus some vallejo thick mud for some depth

I'm first time user of DN Models mask set, i was worried about paint bleed because they didnt seem to stay in place over the very high rivits, but they were very very good, no issues at all, next up the german crosses

Those tracks look very realistic! Great use of weathering tools. I keep forgetting about buying some pastels.  How do you powder them? Shave the sticks and then pulverize them?

Also a good reminder for using pencils for metal edges

Awesome work as well for your first airbrushing too BTW. Are you a convert now?

Just scrape the pastels with a file, no need for extra pulverising 

 

I should have bought airbrush years ago, I didn’t because I wasn’t sure if my new found modelling mojo was a fad or serious commitment 

 

now my my stash is growing and AB is so versatile I love it

Looks great! I love the detail on the unditching beam in particular, but the whole thing is nice.

 

Makes me want to get one of these and start an attack across the living room carpet.  

 

One thing I have noticed in videos of this model in operation is that Tamiya did a pretty solid job of trying to capture scale speed with their choice of gearing.  It moves pretty slowly which is important to me; makes it more realistic.
