  1. Hi guys: Constructions done on Friday Night, Primed on Saturday and today (Sunday) started with the green color of the Camo.
  2. Well last night I work just two more hours, so with that little time I finished all the details of the turret. I just left apart the machine gun barrel so I can paint it easily. Next the fenders and constructions is done.
  3. And finally the Turret in a 75% done. 12 hours so far since I started this project, should stay out of the soccer games on TV jejejee
  4. The Only PE Parts, I just glued it with Carpenter's white glue. Works fine for me, just use a small amount.
  5. More work in progress, hull and turret near complete. both have some plastic line to let you know where to put some pieces, remember to removed it first. Also some plastic putty used here and there to fill some seams lines an other parts on the rear.

  14. Hi Guys! during the last few weeks I was frustrated with the results of a complex PE kit and lost my "Karma". so I decided to comeback to the basics. Start a kit OOB, and looking on my stash found this really old model kit from Tamiya, the Horch 1A. Horch was a car brand manufactured in Germany by August Horch & Cie. a curious thing I found looking information for this model is that the company Still Exist as AUDI. Audi is the Latin translation of horch, from the German verb "Horchen", which means "Listen" The Audi name was proposed by a son of one of his business partners from Zw
