JGSDF Type 10, Because, well, why ever not?

I was at the hobby shop yesterday and wanted something shiny and new to build.

So I bought this to just have something to build quickly. I also wanted to try glueing all the tracks and road wheels together as one unit to attempt to simplify painting.

So far, so good as the kit builds wonderfully and looks quite nice. I did add a little piece of mesh for the bottom of the turret bustle but everything else is OOB. Not to shabby for a few enjoyable hours work.

I hope the running gear comes away cleanly( I only tacked it with PVA glue) and stays all in one piece.

Thanks for looking in.

I fully agree! Why not? :)

Hi Daniel!

Seems to me that Type 10 kit fitted perfectly what your were looking for so, as said, why not?

I look forward the painting stage!

Regards!
Alvaro

Basic Paint

March 20 2017, 6:08 AM 

Thanks!

A quick build is a happy build.


It looks as if so far the road wheels are staying put. I just gently pried them off and the whole running gear just popped off. It is still a very fragile unit but heaps easier to deal with than painting in situ. I have never had much success with blue tac as the wheels on these 1/48 scale kits aren't the tightest fitting. The PVA glue seems to be the way to go.

I sprayed a bit of paint tonight and the basic camouflage is on. Not 100 percent happy but it will have to do as fussing about will only stall me out.

Here's where I'm at on day two.

I'll do some brush painting tomorrow then I can shoot some clear to seal it all in.

Thanks for looking in.

More painting done

I have the turret just about where I want it. Just need some detail painting and some chalk weathering.

And I have started working on the running gear even though it will be mostly invisible.

Lots of lovely detail to paint up and a lot of fun.

Thanks for looking in.
