Que tal, tengo poca informacion sobre la historia de este vehiculo, si alguno sabe algo al respecto mucho se lo agradeceria para colocarlo de introduccion.

Luego de haber contactado a algunos compañeros militares consegui acceso para la observacion, toma de fotos y medidas de este ejemplar, luego de llevarlo a la mesa de diseño en AutoCAD logrando conseguir un plano de este modelo a escala 1/35 muy cercano a la realidad. Con un poco de paciencia y scrash pude consegir unir las piezas quedando de la siguiente manera

This is a prototype which will help me to correct some details and observations that I make and then make the mold. This is a conversion to be placed on the Unimog chassis (3082 to revel) in their respective chassis modification.

Estoy indeciso en cual de estos dos modelos realizare al final, solo cambia el color.

I'm undecided on which of these two models will make at the end, just change the color.

Bueno ahora estoy colocando los guardapolvos y los cajones de tanques de gasolina. Observo que tengo que hacerle un recorte al chasis para que cuadre con la carrocería del UR 416. Acá esta la comparación.

Well now I'm putting overalls and tanks of gasoline drawers. I notice that I have to make a cut to the chassis to fit in with the body of the UR 416. Here's the comparison.

Como la huella del caucho del UR 416 no es igual al que trae el modelo de revell, me dedique a buscar ese tido de rueda por la mayoria de las casas de modelismo en internet (dunlop 13) pero fue en vano y es por ello que no me quedo otra opcion que diseñar la huella del caucho para luego hacer un tipo de vulcanizacion casera ... hasta ahora ya tengo una buena distribucion de los tacos muy parecida a la huella original

Loving the scratchbuilding work. Great to see a neat and tidy build. How awkward was it to set out the angles of the bodywork? Do you have access to the real thing for measurements or are you working from drawings?

Hope to follow this build.

Hi Nige, was certainly a little difficult to establish the angles of the body but as I have access to the real scale model I could make corrections and another thing I had to take into mind to make the frame was subtracted the thickness of the plastic sheet the scale of 1 / 35. I hope you understand my English.

Your English is perfect. I regularly make the mistake of forgetting about the thickness of the plastic, especially as I do not make too much effort to measure the card thickness when choosing which of my card stock to use for my 1/24.

With you working in 1/35 the thickness of the card will have a bigger impact on your measurements.

Are you adding a full interior or will the model be simple with hatches battened down? Are you in the military that you can get access to the real vehicles?

You seem to have the angles just right.

Nige

Well, I had initially intended to model the interior but I'm working with a tpz ( http://fororyc.forumsmotions.com/t1117p45-tpz-1-transporte-de-infanteria-ejercito-venezolano )and has given me a lot of work to do inside in scracht, moreover, as I have few details of the interior of UR 416 I chose to do only the outside. I am not military but I know some peaple can get access to enter these areas usually civilians can not enter.

Por ultimo, el recorte del chasis es de unos 7 mm a fin de que las ruedas cuadren.

Luego de hacer varios intentos logre acercarme a la forma de las bisagras de las escotillas del techo asi como la base del riel donde va la ametralladora, quedando de la siguiente manera

BUeno, continuando con este modelito... ya pude realizar una buena pieza para luego realizar el grabado, esta es la pieza con la proteccion de las partes que quiero realizar.



y luego del proceso de grabado, este fue el resultado, para el proximo fotograbado ya se que tengo que hacer las lineas de sujecion mas anchas, para que no se me caigan las pecitas como me paso en esta oportunidad

Interesting. It seems like the styrene modeling prior to 27 Sep 2011 was a test-fit. A subsequent version appears to have the colored lines printed on from a computerized design, perhaps before assembly...very interesting.

Bueno, he sacado algo de tiempo y pude por fin hacer el neumático con el detalle adecuado y ahora estoy muy satisfecho del resultado. Por los momentos actualizare las fotos que se han borrado y continuaré con el proyecto para finalizarlo a mediano plazo y si todo va bien hasta podré sacar un molde para reproducirlo para la venta jejeje
