Hello All,

After a little break way from the Famo with a quick Takom Chieftan build I feel like the Mojo is back to get on and finish the Famo. It was a good break and The Takom Chieftan fell together with little ease.
Painted in Tamiya acrylics fished with Ammo washes and
the Excellent Valykrie British modern tank crew to man the Chieftan.
Here is the result of 2+ months of model direction change.

Cheers,
Michael

Hello again,

Once more it is slowly getting there, have been tinkering around with trying to get the right colour for the famo front end with washes and chipping.
The problem arising for me was I had crap everywhere on the painting desk and needed to rectify the sprall of products.
The result, clean work platform,easy assess:thumb

The painting desk after

Wow, Michael, that desk is amazing! Self-made or ordered from somewhere? I'm thinking about ordering HobbyZone system but have not decided yet...

Thanks MZsoft

My dad wanted some more work to do to keep himself busy through his retirement days so I had drawn up some plans and he built it up for me.

He did a fantastic job.

Cheers
Michael

Hello again,
Work on famo, limited
interim project, Radio Van has my attention.Sorry FAMO

Intention was to have a Mantis Miniature bulldog sitting in front seat of the Famo.
It was going to be a tight squeeze with the dog and the 3 guys in the front.
Option 2 bulldog will now sit on floor in Radio Van.
Will have to look for a smaller mutt to fit in the famo.
Really smashing the work on the radio van.Will be back to famo shortly.


Michael

Hello again,

Here is the next stage of applying the primer on the panzer 3 with the Mig Ammo primer along with the other current WIP. Opel radio van stowage , tyres and radio operator head.
I found the radio wires and smaller components that go with the radio's very tedious but well worth the effort.

Hello,

Next update with the famo and trailer.

I have been delaying this particular job off for a long time because it required a little more patience to do it right.

Holes have been drilled to allow pins be be glued to hold the famo and trailer in place on the display base.


The inner wheels on the trailer have a hole drilled in each resin tyre with the Famo front wheels also drilled to accomodate pins to help reduce any movement of the model.

It's not much but it will help keep it all together.

It was at this stage I wanted to check the size comparison of the Famo and trailer compaired against the M26 built back in 02 and as you can see the Famo is one hell of a huge beast.



Whilst doing that I have also been working on the 2 tankers which will be sitting on the panzer 3.


They are the kit figures which will have the heads changed out with hornet heads.

Both figures have been base coated in Humbrol Matt black with Vellajo acrylics highlight over the top of the matt black .Still working on the tankers, they need a coat of flat clear to reduce the shine and there will be uniform markings to go on both of them.

Michael
