Tempo G 1200 _ Double Trouble

Hi guys,

To prove to my wife that I can manage multi tasking dispite being male, I have several projects on my workbench.
This one is in the paiting stage. A resin kit by Plus Model that required some extra care by replacing some kit parts and adding some stuff that was omitted or wrongly interpreted by the manufacturer.





Some paint added




The story behind the title, Double Trouble, I hear you ask?
Well, two flat tires, one spare wheel and a sad looking German. That's all. Just a small vignette.
This is the base in the making:


The figure in progress



Some details:
The head lights with home made lenses



Floorplanks


PE Wind shield with home made wipers


A Chevy wheel that a friend of mine gave me was much better sized than the kit one on the right


Seats were worked over to give them some volume


Wheels with flat tires


Internal details


Still way to go but we're getting there.
Finally, a snap shot of the lay out


To be continued

Robert

Tempo, (also known as Vidal & Sohn Tempo-Werke GmbH), was a German automobile manufacturer based in Hamburg.
Found a few pictures of the vehicle in camo colors.
4 wheel drive, 4 wheel steering and two engines (one per axle).

Well, it's truly German. It is arguably the first off road four wheel drive vehicle ever.
This thing had two engines, one in front and one in the back, and by some genius construction the front wheels and back wheels could steer independently from each other. Like on the PUMA for example. The suspension could also perform some serious tricks.
My guess is that it must have been a mechanics' nightmare.

My research tells me that this car was more of an export product than that it was used by the Wehrmacht itsself. The vehicle was used by Argentinian, Chilean, Skandinavian and various other West and East-European countries.
The information provided by Plus Model mentions that it was used by several units of the Luftwaffe and the SS.
So I made my model an SS-vehicle.

Robert

Small update.
I have been chipping myself silly on this thing. Added some Archer transfers to the dash board and now noticed I still missed some spots for scratches 'n' chipz
Anyway, here the pics. Sorry for the fact that they're not that great. I tried out a new set up for these.

Howdy y'all

I made little progress. Too much sunshine here, for a change.
Thought you might be interested to have a look anyway

Tempo was faded using dots of oil painted wich were faded (get it? ) with a brush moistened with white spirit, leaving color nuances and streaks.
It's all there, but perhaps too subtle and difficult to catch on a pic.



Tires were flattened almost to the rim as my original attempt to reproduce flat tires was a joke.
I used A+B putty to imitate the rubber. After that the wheels were chipped,
tires were re-painted with Tamiya NATO black.
I will add some little mud splashes and dust, but after that I call them done.


My fig is standing about like this for a few weeks now.
Face basecoated with Vallejo Sand Brown, first step only,
and eyes painted. Also with acrylics, which is a first for me
as I normally do the iris and pupils with oil paint. Sorry for the blurry pic


And the base is nearly done. I mainly used MiniNature grass. Super stuff.





This will be the front view


And some artistic shots shot in a sporty position




Hope you like it so far.

Robert

Hey Robert,
this is looking VERY nice!
I always loved your stuff.
I canīt put my hands on it, but did you change something one your style in the finish/weathering phase? It looks slightly different to your other stuff and be it what it is, itīs getting even better.
