New arrivals 31th of August 2023

Those three kits have arrived lately.

All three are pretty expensive kits that I would love to start building anytime soon.
The Citroën have instructions in french only which might be a small problem.

Ork Trukk – WH40k- final reveal

This was a fairly quick build, even though the kit have a few problems with fit locations.
It’s no big problems to sort, and now this one is finished!

It would be fun to build one for one of the other clans and get a little more bright colours!

Ork trukk – part 2

I did some more work and added the missing parts. Then I used thinned out pale sand to give tires and a few other spots a sandy look. Trying to make it look like sand had collected in some places. I used a brush but perhaps I should have misted it on with the airbrush instead.
Anyway I think I’ll consider it done!

I’ll take some proper pics for the final reveal later.

Ork Trukk – Warhammer 40k – Games Workshop

As I’m already building a lot of orks, I thought this truck or trukk could be a nice addition.

The chassie was fairly easy.

Next part of the build was the engine.

Not long after it was time for some black paint.

After painting the engine, tires and frame, I could start assembly a bit.

Then I painted some more parts in rust and different metal colour.

I think I achieved a nice rusty metallic feel to the whole vehicle.
Next some more parts was painted black.

Then it was time to assemble a bit more.

I had to build and test fit the two figures before I could paint them properly.

Some more painting done.

Close up on the figures!

I put the figures in place as well as the wrecking ball and the ramps.

Not much left to do! I need to sort the exhaust pipe as I wasn’t happy with how it looked and then there’s one more part to get in place. Looks like exhaust pipes of some kind but the instructions aren’t very clear on where they should go.

I think I’ll need to get the large pipe in place first and then try to figure the small pipes.
Once that is done I’ll start making the finishing touches by adding some dirt and touching up small mistakes.

Citroën traction 11CV w/7 Luftwaffe crew figures – Tamiya 1/48

I talked with a friend of mine and he showed me the dio he was working on, and in it there was this Citroën, that I thought looked quite nice. I checked the hobby shop and found this set with car and crew. I thought it could fit well in a dio with a plane.

I started building it on the build weekend the other week. Except for some glimpses in other pics I seem to have forgotten to take proper pics.
So I took a pic of what I had done so far.

I had problems painting with the clear cote at the meeting and it didn’t turn out as I had hoped.
I layed another cote today that is just slightly better.

Hopefully I can polish away some of the blemishes once the paint have cured properly.

Meanwhile I’ll start painting the figures.

My intention is to create a dio with the Fw190 I’m building.

Fw190A-3 – update 3

The parts inside the canopy was assembled.

Tires, gears and some other small parts was painted.

The propeller was masked and painted aluminium.

Then the propeller and hub was assembled.

I made the shoulder belts and glued and painted the sight glass.

Next will be to sort some of the seams, glue the front window and the canopy.
Hopefully I can start priming and painting soon.

Fw190A-3 – update 2

I masked and painted the inside of the canopy and a few other parts.

I think the canopy turned out quite nice.

I made some seat belts from masking tape and painted them.

I’ll do the shoulder belts once the cockpit is in place and I have checked where they’re fastened.
With the cockpit and wheel wells done it was quite easy to assemble the plane.

Fairly easy and quick build so far! I have seams to check and a few more parts to paint and then I can start painting the plane.

Combat Patrol – Orks – part 3

The boss and the dredd got some more paint.

The rest of the gang got primed!

The box with orks ended up following me to the build weekend. The dredd figure got some terrain and some more paint.

The boss also got some more paint.

The orks got some grey primer and a light white drybrush.

Then I started painting the skin green.

The deff koptas also got the same treatment.

Once I got home, I continued with the green colours adding more highlights.

Still some more to do with the skin. Then I’ll start painting their clothes and other details.
Just need to figure good colours for their pants and shirts. Since they’re goff I guess it would be mainly dark or perhaps black.

Fw190A-3 – Tamiya 1/48

When I got home last sunday the internet was down, which was annoying as it lasted for three days.
One way to pass time is of course to build models and with nothing to do on my computer I could spend more time building models.

As I’m thinking of doing a small dio with the Citroen and figures I bought a while ago, I started building this plane to be part of the dio.

It’s a nice little kit and I got quite far before even taking any pics.

As the cockpit is inserted from the underside, I could glue the fuselage.
The inside of the fuselage, wheel wells, cockpit and landing gear is painted and only need some detailing.

New arrival 10th of August 2023

I was away the last weekend on a weekend build meeting that we usally have once a year.
This was the second one this year which was very nice!
There on of the members had a bunch of models for sale and I managed to pick up three of them.

I also bought a package of 2 component clear cote and a bottle of flow improver at one of the local hobby shops.
