  1. FYI - Martin Kovac has a YouTube Channel with very informative model tutorials. Mostly armor models but the techniques are usable on any genre. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCNM5EknY1XBA9buLmJqYLdw/videos.
  2. In case you haven't heard about it yet, Martin Kovac has been putting out some very informative videos on all aspects of armor model building. Great stuff and worth a watch. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCNM5EknY1XBA9buLmJqYLdw/videos

    Takom SMK

    Thanks. I agree. I just need to add some light buff patches to complete the look.

    Takom SMK

    Paint applied to the SMK. All paints are AK real Color. The distressed mottled paint effect was created with the hairspray technique. I used Montex masks for the markings.

    Finished the ISU-203. Additional images can be found here: ISU-203
  6. I was just teasing! But it would get the rest of the country exposed to the glory of South Texas smoked sausage links. 🤣 I'm looking forward to the show. It will be my first one in years.
  7. Can you arrange a shuttle to go from San Marcos to Luling so people can eat at City Market BBQ? Heck, a loop from Luling, Lockhart, Austin and Driftwood should keep you full for the rest of the stay.
  8. Finished the Saturn Knight. Additional images can be found here: MK44 SaturnKnight And I got the family together for the weekend.

    Takom SMK

    One was built. Immobilized by a mine during trials against Finland. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SMK_tank

    Detail painting and first filters and wash. There is still a lot to do.

    Takom SMK

    Well SMK my ass! Built mostly OOB. I didn't like the fender stowage wooden boxes and tools so I added boxes from the spares. Easy build. I worked on and off for about 5 weeks in between other projects. Wads of blue tack mask the wheel mounts. I always have better luck with gluing tracks to wheels at the start. When I leave rigid plastic tracks off and try to install last, I always run into fit issues because of paint layer build up.
  12. Looking forward to your build. It is a very interesting and rather large piece of equipment.
  13. The Takom instructions call out a MIG 909 Light Grey Base. Looking at images of the paint bottle, it appears very dark so I don't have a good answer for you but these guys might. You will need to register but worth the effort. https://www.tapatalk.com/groups/missinglynx/world-war-i-1920s-and-1930s-f282066/

    Thank you Rodolfo and Bill!

    Final details and ready for primer. The busted wheel and spare track stowage are based on ref photos. The damaged headlight is the kit part carefully thinned with a motor tool cutter, softened with liquid cement and dented with a finger nail.
