Getting closer to my favorite phase of construction...the paint.

First off, this kit is reminiscent of the old LifeLike kits - big seams, sink marks, HUGE sprue connection points...not what I was expecting.

Some parts (seats and frames especially) were quite fiddly. I expect the shield-to-gun-frame to be the same.



All in all, it did go together pretty well. The instructions are not really clear where some parts go...only because the pictures are dark.

Making quick work of this little jewel. It's quite fiddly, especially the gun assembly and the carriage. Care must be taken when removing small parts from the sprue, but it looks like it will build up nicely.

My progress so far.
For one of the pictures I "borrowed" the gun from another project.
Will build another one for this campaign.

Wow, Ian! I had no idea the G6 were that big.

Nice progress. How is the quality of the kit?

Looking forward to see more.



The quality is pretty good. the detail is nice and it's a fairly straight forward build. no real issues so far. I'm not a big fan of the mitered joints though. be careful with the steering linkages they are meant to be workable. you melt the pins, but if you press a little too hard you can melt the 2 parts together then it won't work. like mine grrr.

Ha ha! I know the feeling, Iain! I'm currently enlisted in 14 active campaigns!




And I thought making this my seventh active campaign was pushing things.



It will only get worse, guys! I have an average of 18 completed campaigns pr. Year. Highly addictive although having two kids have slowed down the speed somehow.

Hello fellow modelers,

Because I seem to have developed a small campaign build addiction, I am going to provisionally throw my hat in the ring for this one too.
Probably won't make start till I get nearer completion on a couple of other campaigns, but I'll be pulling the Dragon 25pdr out of the stash for this one. It's two and half pages (I think) of instructions should make a nice change of pace from the novella sized booklets from my current and previous build of Bronco kits.

RJ, That is an awesome project. I have never seen that before.

Mr. K, excellent choice! I have really been tempted to buy that kit, but resisted so far. Looks like there are some great options for camouflage schemes.

Cool to see the G6 Rhino is also here.

I have started my Forgeworld plasma mortar. I feared this kit quite a lot since it was a resin kit, but after an evenings work it is cleaned up and build. Next is a solid base coat and some painting.

More to follow.

Just take your time, mostly it fits together well, but there's some areas that need a little more attention.

Progress so far, hope you like it. (sorry for the drive link, I don't have much room left my kitmaker gallery)

No issues with the build so far. Quality control on this kit however...leaves something to be desired. when I first got the kit after Christmas I noticed the decals were missing, got those replaced. once I started building. I found out the glass sprue was wrong ( belonged to the Hanomag) so now i'm waiting to get that replaced. Which is why I started with the turret.

Hi all,
Is it called the artillery? I choose a coastal gun 130 mm Bereg for this campaign.



Regards,
K.
