The post-nose-dive rebuild has left one of the road wheel-track sections somewhat wonky, so will have to park her up against a pile of bricks/rubble. Thanks for the suggestions about where to look - search party already dispatched. Hope the multiple posts aren't overkill. Cheers, Ralph.
Even though the "113" number had been pointed out as being incorrect way back, only now did I revisit the instruction sheet to find that Tamiya got it right with "424". Maybe the model was trying to tell me something when it jumped onto the floor!
No excuses - I applied the wrong decals. Time to bury this one at the back of the shelf.
Thanks for your interest and help along the way. Off now to stick my head in the fishtank and sing... Cheers, Ralph.
Donīt worry too much about the numbers, pal. I always prefer to use different numbers from instructions or photos so I can build my own story for the tank and weather it with no history limitations. Please finish the bricks base, this is looking awesome!
So sorry mate for my recent online absence, been a bit preoccupied of late....well what can I say, I saw your name and thought I'd take a peak. To my delight you've really expressed yourself with this one. No worries on the decals, trust me, no one will really ever give a bleep in the end, right. Love the colors and tones you've been able to achieve...
Take care and congrats for showcasing your work here.
No one will give a rodents rear about the decals ,hell i wouldn't have known if you hadn't mentioned it.Most models have some sort of flaw and usually it's only the builder that knows, this is a really nice build so don't stop now .Have fun and keep going wayne
I am into this model as we speak, and I love how you've done the dusty film on the turret top, and even though I agree that engine deck is a bit dark, I like the contrast.
I've been keenly following your work on this one, and I like your methods for all the tonal variety. Don't worry over the decals, no one will care anyway, it's the finish we care about, and this is a good-looking JSII.
