Time for another update tour; this one is a small one given how little time I got to spend on the workbench. Fortunately, I did manage to finish four models; you'll see them in the finished forums.
I'll start with my aircraft, since all I did was to shoot another coat of white on them after fixing a few blatant blemishes. First was the Norseman:
And then the Fokker F-27:
My apologies for the pics there; they were taken in my 'spray booth'. Barring any unforeseen additional blemishes, I'll be gloss coating these soon.
Now on to my armor, and another apology: I said I wouldn't have any more pics of my Centurions here, but then I realized I still had a ways to go on my Australian one. To start with, I'd forgotten to put the outer return rollers on the one side. Kinda need them since this tank has no skirts:
After that I figured with all the moisture in South Vietnam where this operated; I would rust out the exhaust covers a bit:
Moving on, I wanted to get some more progress done on another Centurion; this time the Israeli Sho't Kal Alef. I added the turret storage bins, the fenders and storage bins on them as well:
After that, I re-started another two projects that I'd been neglecting, why; I don't know. They are so close to paint now so I finished up adding all the extra parts and adding the "open" hatch to the Type 89B:
There are more detail parts to add later but they would break off during painting and handling so I am leaving them off till last.
And finally, this last model that has been annoying me by being in the way all the time: my M-ATV. I cemented the interior to the chassis and then finished painting the interior so I could close this up:
Before I could close it up, I had to add the photo-etch grill screen on the front of the hood:
Finally, this beastie is all closed up and the rear bed is attached as well:
I realized later that there was a photo-etch assembly that needed to be added to the interior. Oh well, it wouldn't have been seen anyway inside this thing with such tiny windows so I'm not bothered.
Now to finish the upper turret, add the windows and some other detail parts before painting.
That's it for now. Stay tuned as I hope to have more to show later.
Thank you all for looking in, comments are welcome.
