and the next project is..........

im at that point where i can see the end coming to whats on the bench and have started planning the next one.........and since i dont have any GB's going on any of the forums i go on i can  pick and choose what the next project will be

picked this up at a recent show for not a lot

its a Italerai repop of a Dragon kit......ive never done a Dragon kit so thats a first for me........ive also never played about with individual tracks so thats a second first...........be good practice cos something im planning on soon will have aftermarket tracks and they have been scaring me off from starting that particular kit

for those that arnt familiar with a BMP-2

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/BMP-2

kit comes with a choice of 5 different schemes/decal option......at the minute i have no idea which one i shall go for...wait and see how brave i am i guess lol

there dosnt seem to be many parts to it so hopefully it will not be a long build






the real deal.........

Nice little bit of armour there. The individual tracks are indeed intimidating, there's just so many, lol. Looking forward to seeing this come together!

Had to go back up to the kit to check the scale as you've been busy with 1:72 stuff. Having seen the individual track links I was very relieved to see its 1:35 lol.
Enjoy Paul.

progress so far today.........

lower hull has all the suspensiony bits added and rear doors.....as normal ive bonded in a nut so i can use some threaded rod as a handle, and some scrap metal to add some mass

upper hull ive gone as far as i plan at the moment

turret is about half done

next job is to have a go at these individual tracks..............but i have a bold and cunning plan, which is why i cant progress any further with the hull

ive never done a Dragon kit in this scale.......id love to know what the quality of Dragon kits are like and if this was moulded/boxed at Dragon with an italerai box or did italeri borrow the moulds and do it all themselves in Italy.....................cos theres quite a bit of flash, 1 sprue was slightly warped and the injection gates are some of the worst ive ever seen!

One l-o-n-g vehicle! Let us know how the treads fit together and if there are bits to file or trim from each piece. It looks like it'll take a Russian Winter long time to fit them together!

so its had a shiny coat of Kleer, then the few decals that there was, a few black washes (and i think i might have over done it) now ready for a matt varnish to dull it all down..........then i can think about those tracks lol

The wash effect looks great! I don't see that it's over done, the matte coat will likely blend it all in nicely

tracks are on...........and im not too impressed

first time ive played with individual link tracks in this scale and a right royal pain in the bum they were

i was using this kit as a trial run for using link track on the Sturm Panzer but cos they were such a pain im going to use the rubber one on the Panzer

cos they arnt as nice as i planned the next step is to hide them with some mud splodged on and ive got a nozzle for my airbrush ive never tried specially for 'spattering' so might try that with some mud coloured paint
