Gorby 17,213 Posted March 9 Report Share Posted March 9 While I’m having to move between proper workspace and a cutting mat on the dining table I’ve got two builds on the go….well actually more than two. Because I’m a bit cack handed I’m not going to risk paint downstairs. Can you imagine the grief I’d get if I spilt a jar of XF-69 on the carpet? So I’ll just be sticking bits of placcy together….and what doesn’t need to be painted inside? Tanks. When one gets slapped together, I'll then start on another and then paint all of them together at the end when the dog is fully fixed and I can go back to my workroom proper. First on the table is IBG Models A9 CS Close Support British Cruiser Tank from their 'World at War' series, which I reviewed here. As it's easier to use my moby phone for taking pics at the table, pictorial evidence will be both sporadic and not very good. To make painting easier I'm trying the 'stick a magnet in it' method. In hindsight it would have been better if I'd stuck two magnets in because one isn't good enough. That was quick. Maybe I should have said "virtually no existent" rather than 'sporadic'. The least enjoyable part of the build was cleaning up the mould seam on the outside and particularly on the inside of the track/road wheel parts, other than that and a few minor annoyances if was an enjoyable build. Easily buildable in a single day, although I took about a week. 7 Quote Link to post Share on other sites
