Looks like Iím on the right track as to the colours- Iíll poke about Landships and see what I can find. As I am in the process of doing a ďloadĒ, jerry cans oil drums and boxes for the new Airfix Jeep and GMC I have to make some molds this week, Iíve decided to make my own pattern for the flimsies and to cast them in resin. AB miniatures do them as part of a set and Iíll size them from those. When theyíre done Iíll post to let you see.
Re your FT-17
When I build a model I have 3 goals these are-
Do the best I can, but donít sweat it, its ONLY a model.
If you follow ALL of these guides then ALL of your models are good builds. The results of ALL model building is directly the result of experience i.e. skill level, time spent on the project, experience, time spent in research, experience and (particularly if your doing oob) then the quality of the kit itself will determine the resulting finished model and finally did I mention experience?
Never compare the quality of your work to others other than to say one of two things:
ďThatís what I want to aspire to (this =experience)Ē
ď Iíve come a long way since I modeled at that level (this also =experience)Ē.
As you can see thereís a pattern to all of this, so, be happy with your FT-17 it reflects your experience and thatís only improved on by one model at a time and you donít want to know how much time Iíve spent on models!
