Hello to all...
After lurking on and off for a few years here I actually made my 1st post a few weeks ago after a friend sent me the link to Jose's beautiful Enigma and I was in the middle of mine at the time. I have not seen many on the new Tamiya kits being built but the ones I did see where here so I thought I would share mine.
I used the Aber and Voyager PE sets picking the best suited part as needed, modified a Voyager barrel, a bit of scratch building here and there and replaced dozens of nut and bolts with brass form Scale Hardware, plastic from Tichy and resin ones from a company whose name escapes me at the moment. Weathering was kept to a minimum for an in service look. Oh yeah, I forgot to mention the welds. Had to add welds, welds, welds everywhere. Sure was good practice.
A running set of WIP pics can be seen here
Thank you for looking.
