A very short amount of bench time at the end of a frustrating day to get the tires pigmented and start the dust coat....
annddd disaster narrowly averted.

When using the pigments I put down a sheet of white paper to keep the benchtop somewhat tidy..
so I get the pigments on, knock off the wiper blade, finish the pigments, and throw the paper in the trash..

THEN I remember the wiper.
Lucky me it's right there in the paper and unbroken.

Back on the shelf..

Only 9 months left!

I was doing this as well. I finally decided to stick with the Merkava. I have so many un-built kits. I need to concentrate on one at a time.

I like the washes on the satchels and tarps, etc, the colors look totally on spot, Steve! They do not look like plastic or resin!

Thanks, Mike. I'm just hoping I can find the rear view mirror or a suitable replacement.

Looking good Jim,
I remember seeing the decal woes you had before.

Now all you need is 'Florida Man' to put in cuffs in the backseat..

Hello from the Shiny Side! So, I managed to get some more work dome on the Charger Build From Hell. My decal issue was resolved, and this is where the build stood on 26 FEB 16:



And here is where we are now:





The front & rear bumpers are just placed on for the photos, and are not secured yet. Despite some setbacks, the build is starting to come together. The latest setback is the rear view mirror shot across the room, and I cannot find it. No idea where it might be. I minor setback, but I'm sure something will pan out (or I'll find the part). So, onward with the build!

Welcome to the fun that never ends. In my case, the perennial non-finisher, it really doesn't. As the year progresses and more people miss campaign deadlines, we won't be alone!

I have the base coat of Tamiya XF-62 on. I lightened it a bit with yellow/green. Has anyone noticed XF-62 seems a bit greener now.

Next up is base coating the stowage.

Thank for looking Steve

Harald,
Another one (shelf queen) bites the dust.. soon, I hope.

Chipping on the rocket pods.

Paint and wash,


First layer of chips


Second chip layer


As it stands now, needs a filter to blend it all together still
