1/72 Vickers Mk.VI B

My longtime project was completed.
Here is a scratch build 1/72 Vickers Mk.VI B.

If the ACE kit had come out earlier, I could make it easier.
But much thanks to ACE for their very nice tracks!

Now I'm looking for nice decals fit to this vehicle.

I hope you like it.
Thank you.

What a fantastic model. Superb skill, if only 1% of your scratch building skill I would be a happy modeller.
Hope to see more of your work in the future

Hi Mutsuhito,

Wonderful scratch-building, superb paint job, what more can be said. I look forward to the final details being added and would love to see more of your work.

All the best,

Looking more 1/35 than 1/72 to the naked eye...

July 28 2012, 8:15 AM 

Very, very nice scratch building, and the ACE tracks look great!

How did you go about creating the rivet detail?

Cheers,
Peter

How to make rivets

July 29 2012, 7:36 AM 

Hi, Peter.

Here is my way to make small rivets.

01.JPG
This copper sheet is drilled some small holes and pasted on a board.
I use 0.3mm, 0.35mm and 0.4mm diameter holes.

02.JPG
Rivets are made with sprue.
Heat one end of sprue and press melted part on the holed sheet immediately.

03.JPG
Rivets are molded.

05.JPG
Cut rivets.

04.JPG
When I set rivets on my models, prick them softly with a knife to glue and set.
Practice is required but I love this way.

Did it become helpful?

Wonderful idea...

July 29 2012, 8:00 AM 

Hi Mutsuhito,

That is so elegantly simple. I normally plunder the undersides of tanks, especially Dragon, as the manufacturers put rivets there and unless you are modelling a turned over tank they are never seen. This is a way of ensuring I never run out of rivets and I can do them the actual size I need. Thank you so much for sharing this with us. I will be practising later today, look forward to seeing the results.

All the best,

Paul

Works a treat....

July 29 2012, 2:58 PM 

Hi Mutsuhito,

I have just tried this method out and after a few tries I was producing rivets quite easily. I just did four 0.5mm holes in a square for now and will try some different sizes over the next few days. This is going to make life so much easier, thank you very much for this wonderful tip.

All the best,

Paul

It's easy

July 29 2012, 7:40 AM 

Hi, Dan.

These ACE tracks are made with soft rubber(?), so I could make sag with a little effort.
I glued tracks to each wheels on two or three points to make them sag.
That's all!

Cheers
Mutsuhito

Looks really good

July 28 2012, 4:52 PM 

Did you use IBG Bren parts too?

I have the Airfix/JB decals if you like
they are 1/76 & seems small though

Dan Taylor does a set

nice info

July 29 2012, 7:42 AM 

Hi, Elliott.

Thank you for your information of decals.
They seem very nice. I will try to get them.

I didn't use IBG's parts for this light tank but they look good in your construction report.

Enjoy modelling!

That is the most amazing small scale scratch build I've ever
seen. If you ever do A9/A13 British cruiser tanks I'll cry
if you don't make a mould of them.
