Mexican ERC Lynx Paintwork Mk 2
I've now had another bash at the paintwork for the lynx. I used mr hobby H321 light brown for the base colour then hand painted the green using vallejo 890 retractive green. A couple of coats of this did the trick nicely.  Once the gloss coat & weathering a...

Plenty Of Primer
Last night saw me spraying the primer on the transporter & howitzer. I'd say it took a couple of hours work which included mounting parts for spraying etc. This morning the model looks really good with the primer on and I'm glad I deepened the door lines on...

PLA Transporter Progress
The model is now all built with many parts left off until after painting. It's been the usual round of sand fill & repeat with some horrid pin marks to eliminate on the rear ramps. Also the trailer tyres are again a poor fit so I'll be gluing them onto the ...

Benchvent BV300S-D Bench Test
So I've just tested out the benchvent and have sprayed the primer on the transporter chassis & re primed the Lynx. My initial thoughts are that the unit works extremely well and is actually very quiet. I've also got loads of space in front of the unit for s...

Transporter beaten Into Submission!
Well after more swearing and beer the lower chassis is now at a stage where I can paint it. Luckily it's all black apart from the funky orange engine block so the paint should hide a fair few flaws! I also managed to get the wheels to fit better by using gl...

PLA Transporter Putting Up A Fight
I've struggled today with the model trying to get the rear axles fitted square and level. Lots of fiddling & swearing finally got the buggers in position. Nothing seems to be in the correct location and there are lots of these issues to deal with. For examp...

PLA Transporter & Flickr Changes
The model is now starting to look like a transporter and boy is it big! Lots of fill, sand & repeat has been going on mind you to get to this stage with more of the same to come. However the details are pretty good for such an old kit and I'm enjoying it so...

PLA Transporter & Pumpkin Carving
I've now made a start on the transporter, mostly at this stage cleaning up seam lines and filling, sanding and generally trying to eliminate lots and lots of ejector pin knock out marks. Good job they are all quite accessible, the engine has also been built...
