A great little 1/72 scale printed resin model, given to me by a wargaming buddy, Carlos.
The turret is fixed unfortunately, but not a big problem. It looks the part and now we need to get around to getting it onto the wargame table.
Painted with Vallejo Khaki Grey, added a British roundel off some old aircraft kit I had in the spares box, weathered with a wash, and finally dusted with some crushed pastels.
Not too sure about the scratches to be honest. I think I went a bit over the top - but it's done now, but maybe I'll try and soften them a little with some more dusted pastels.
Looks good to me. Very realistic.ReplyDelete
Like the Airfix Bedouin as well.ReplyDelete
Thanks ! Considering that those Airfix Bedouins were first sculpted nearly 60 years ago, the poses have stood the test of time.Delete
It looks very good. Can use it for both WWI and WWII.ReplyDelete
I plan to do something similar, but I have a FDM-printer so I guess the quality won't be that good.
Thanks Roger. I'm not too familiar with the types of 3D printers. Does sn FDM printer leave visible print lines ?Delete
Yes, the FDM-printer prints in layers and those layers shows as 'lines'. A resin printer also prints in layers, but the surface is smother and the lines don't show. I'm trying to print it in a larger scale so perhaps it will turn out OK even in a FDM-printer after all.Delete
Hi John great job on this armoured car !! Indeed FDM let visible print lines on the model, I understand perfectly Roger's comment and worry. This is a 3D resin print and the quality and the variety even for historic stuff are growing everyday.ReplyDelete
Happy to see you in the saddle again
Un abrazo, amigo!
