well, kind of lost track of the dates and times on this one so hopefully am not to late? Work took over and other stuff for the mags became pressing. But here is my entry and i hope you like it. It will feature in MMIR Mag 52 for a build and paint article.
As you know its the ICM 222, without the updates but all scratch built as previous build photos. All comments are welcome.
thank you for comments, the figure is a very old Gasoline one from a two fig set and i knew he was the one when i saw him in the pack, although as Oliver told me, he's not one of their best i changed the cap for a Tamiya one to help.
state is still the same ... somehow I fear a bit about all the Hauler stuff, OTOH the new turret looks much better. And also I have to find the correct location for the gun, which I did not totally understand from Konrad Schreier's Article on Track48... a crewmember disbording through the side door would be great too, this way I coul dpose it open without showing the - not present - interior
well i think you must continue with your 222 as i think it will come together, Yes the Hauler turret is a must, and much simplier than the way i did it,,,,,and will be better looking with also the finer mesh screens. The crew man exiting etc would be good, and you could use Oliver's new DAK tank set there i think with a little modification maybe...maybe not!!!!
As for the Gun mount, don't worry when the screens are down pop a guy in the top and paint interior black and you'll never know..i did. ha.
I modified the wheels a lot (mainly shape) but have since sorted a master in resin so i might do another with all the extras i didn't have first time round.
Just had a look and there are a few DAK Figures in the Gaso-line ( ) that I could use. Thanks for the hint! Problem is that my budget is really at a stretch and the next months will be even worse as I'll do a trip to Eduard (in June) which will be very expensive (no matter if I buy some stuff or not) ... otoh this will be very cool to see the new shop
As for the gun: if I understood that right it sits too high and too faar aft, but I am not sure. Also I have a barrel from Schatton for it so I would like some emphasis on it ... not to mention that I have a myriad of started and unstarted projects both in aircraft and military ... you see it is just to easy for me to find excuses
We'll see. Thanks again for the great inspirational model!!
I recognized the old Gaso.line figure and love what you have done. I like the tonal varation on the vehicle and stowage also. But I really like your ground work and look forward to reading about the project.
