  2. Hi Fellas: Just a quick post to show my latest work, a 1/35 M24 Chaffee from Italeri. This kit was built between two weeks, I added some soldering lines on the turret using plastic melted by using Tamiya thin glue, Silver dots from Sticko for the headlights, and wire for the antenna and that its, everything else is straight from the box. The kit was painted using the Modulation basic set for olive drab from Ammo of Mig Jimenez, and the markings I choose are for the Korean War.
  3. Thank you! The color its a mix of Tamiya Red Flat with Yellow Lemon in a mix of 1:3 , the result is a opaque yellow, but when you apply a Gloss Varnish, the color change to a wet yellow color. Hope this helps!
  4. Hi : I paint this fantastic figure 3 times, my skill are nor great, but I'm improving with each figure and bust kit that I tried. This is a great kit to any entry level, very recommended stuff.

  16. Hi all! This month I started a new challenge, my very first kit in 1/16 scale and on top of that from World War One, the Takom 1/16 FT-17 Renault! At first I was reluctant to choose this kit, since I have no experience on that scale and I have read about WWI in the past, but never work a kit from that era, so I'm on uncharted waters in many ways. I order the kit with a book reference which I receive from Spruebrothers in just 4 days! (consider that I’m out of the States in the Caribbean, Puerto Rico). Started right away to look at the parts and get familiarized and also look at the information and pictures of the reference book. So I started now calling this a Char, not a panzer, not a tank, that’s the word for tank in French. Also found that this tank was call during WWI just as FT! The FT-17 name was later after the war due to the amount of variants and other French’s projects related. This Char was considered the first tank ! and was used in many conflicts and many countries, so I found a lot of references for the colors. I started right away with the engine, at first the pictures were difficult to find, and even I confuse the American version with the french one. The engine its just called 4 HP Renault engine, the american one is the BUDA HU engine. The building its very straight forward, some cleaning is needed, but is minimal, the fitting is perfect. I added the cabling, the sparks plugs and some metal tubbing to represent it as much real as possible.
  17. Здорово! Наши поздравления с Сибири.(Great! Congratulations from Siberia.) Спасибо! :army7:
