I’ve been busy

While waiting for a break in the UK weather so that I could undercoat the F-104C I started the Masterbox 1/35 kit of the Mercedes Type 170VK Radio Car;

I reviewed the kit for Model Military Int’l mag a couple of months ago and was quite taken with the model so I’m building it straight from the box. The only things I’ve added so far are a folded roof on the back from tissue paper, various grab handles from copper wire, and a new holder for the shovel on the front wing. I’ll be making a cover for the windscreen from Milliput as the frame broke into a couple of pieces.
On the whole it’s a nice little kit with good detail but talk about FRAGILE! Cutting parts off the sprues was ‘interesting’ to say the least and along with the windscreen I broke a couple of other bits too.

I've been a modelmaker for a verrry long time and still show no signs of growing out of it after 50 plus years. I mainly build tanks, aircraft and paint figures but generally do whatever takes my fancy whether it's historical, Science-fiction, a 'what-if' or because it has pretty colours and looks nice. I'm hoping that you find my blog interesting and useful, particularly if building a model that I have built and documented here.
