Great work everybody.

Colin, I'm watching closely as I have the civilian bus version I'm planning to do soon. I bet the driver of the pigeon carrier is glad the bus has a canopy. LOL

Excellent progress on all "fronts."  Keep your eyes skinned for trouble!

Mike the only thing that lets the kit down is the silly places they have sink marks and extrusion points ...other than that i'm actually enjoying it

Made some wooden panels to cover afore-said sink holes / lumpy bits also gave the wooden slats a tan colour and then black washed in between them to give them definition




I'm quite impressed with revell aqua color brass !!!

These military builds are stunning with the attention to detail y'all are putting into them. Keep up the outstanding work.

The plans called for a piece (num 75) looking like this



this is what you get on the sprue (yay airfix QC)



Made my own and it'll do as it's underneath.



leaf springs not too bad when painted, most of it is hidden behind the wheel anyway



got the stairs attached





wheels have decent detail but there's a few extrusion lugs that you can't really get to, so i left them and will paint them brass ... it'll add a bit of extra detail to the wheel lol

Man you are cracking on with this one Coilin but it's looking good.

Part 75 is the tie rod. (The bit that transfers the steering from one side to the other.) The styrene part is obviously malformed and looks more like a Pitman arm, which is the bit from the steering box to the steering arm.

Question: There are a lot of 'ripples' in the bonnet sides, are they molded in? Makes it look like it's cast iron!!

Answer to question (lol)

I tried to get it to look a little hand painted over rough cast

Method ... spray (rattle can) till its just about to run then hit it with a hair drier till it forms a "skin".... when nice and warm hit it again with a decent coat of spray and stuff it in the fridge

the second coat cools and the first (still warm) ripples as it's cooling and gives a reasonable effect

Stretching it a little further than the three minutes i've been allowed by Al for this build  ... lol

Got the mud guards / fenders / flaps attached






Started the exterior boarding ... will be adding some solder lengths to simulate hinges later
Also the top seats are installed .... and added a little green foam cushion for the driver




Getting used to making up stuff myself after finding the sprue parts deformed in some way.

Hand rail (fuse wire)



side guards ... Main brackets (fuse wire again) in kit are shash ... (thought i'd add these guards (they're not added in the instructions) as it's an airfield version and so wouldn't have to go across rough terrain (which is why they were taken off the battle bus))

Though i'd just get on and do the hinges ... then i'm giving it best untill sanity is restored.

at this point...............paint is on, its a bit light cos it was all i had thats vaguely close and i hope once i get a brownish wash on it will look better...had a go at this preshading malarky, never got on with it in the past but since this is a light colour over all i thought id have another crack at it...its had a good coat of Kleer ready for the wash and the decals applied

currently doing the boring job of doing the road wheels

Pre shading is something i've never been successful with Paul ... yours looks ok to me mate.


The "runners" for the chassis were a little warped when i first cleaned them up to attach, i thought it might not be too much of a problem when finishing the model off.... how wrong i was and it's come back to bite me in the a$$

Need to get the brass frame in the gap .... problem indicated by the arrow differences.

Its all glued up and set and it looks like if i bend the runners enough to fit the frame i'll have some snapping on my hands

Hairdryer action needed perhaps ???

ive never got preshading to work cos i tend to be too heavyhanded putting on the top coat and just blot over it all, figured since is a sandy colour id try using a brownish colour rather than black

im still not sure about it but we shall see when it gets a wash

Got the frame to fit with a little heat and persuasion ... not in exactly the right place but it's about right and doesn't put any strain on it or the chassis.




started the external boarding and weathering
