PostSubject: Snatch Landie 1/48   Fri 14 Apr 2017, 11:34 pm

so after 6 months without a bench or the ability to do anything involving plastic ive finally got things in order...must admit ive been climbing the walls with boredom cos ive not been able to bodge plastic!

thought id better do something pretty simple to get back into the swing of it

about 18 months ago i did a desert dio with a selection of the Airfix Operation Herrick vehicles.....i didnt do the Snatch Land Rover cos it seems a little out of place with the WMIK and Coyote

for those that dont know the Snatch is a lightly armoured patrol version of the LR, dating back to the troubles in Northern Ireland

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Snatch_Land_Rover

given the sprues a light coat of grey primer

theres no way the firewall would fit if the engine was fitted.......dont think the doors are going to have a nice fit, so im going to have them open (a little dio is planned)........its a 2 sides and a roof affair that is very difficult to get square.....wheels didnt fit the hubs so needed some 'adjustment' with a knife

Hang in there, Paul. No sense marring the paint on the wall.

current state of play......

made a schoolboy error! put on a gloss coat so i could put on the decals, then forgot to go over with a matt top coat before i added the 'glass' .......but ive added a wash since i took the pic and its took the shine off it all

next step fit the last few bits and bobs then some sand in the nooks and crannies to weather it

be glad when its done but i want to see it through

I think you have made a great job of that Paul, and you have my admiration for finishing it to such a standard.
