1940 Dio update

May 21, 2019

Moving along and making progress in a bunch of different areas so far. Almost ZERO weathering or anything beyond basecoat is done on any vehicles. More decals and more markings done as well.

Dragons Mk IV C gets onto the table. Tamiya’s old Mk IV D will also be making an appearance and both have decals/markings for the specific units in the dio. Added a few things to the build (replaced PE chains with real ones)

I mean c’mon, really? Couldn’t have just put these on yourselves???

My new favorite tool from Citadel!

 

A fun, quick and easy build.

And the Krupp

Somua marked up. More work to be done in getting rid of the ‘film’

And of course more work on the motorcycles…

The 263 is a new build. And by a factor of 10 the most difficult suspension build I’ve ever had to do.

If you end up building this I would urge you, at this point in assemble, to attach A14 to both A9s and A11s BEFORE you put them all on.

And as I go I am priming ‘stuff’ that will accessorize the diorama. Tons of it to be done.

    When I was a kid (in the early 1970s), I used to LOVE making model tanks; my favorite tanks were German Panthers and Tigers, and Jagdpanthers and King Tigers…. Douglass Knight PARATI VENIMUS (We Come Prepared)! Motto of the Massachusetts Military Academy
