1/48th Tamiya Komatsu G40
This is the 1/48th scale Tamiya Komatsu G40 Bulldozer. I finished earlier this year, I completed most of it in one weekend. It is really a fun little kit to build, and as usual with Tamiya well engineered.
A friend of mine once told me never put a model on a table without putting it on a base. So it is my practice to always make a base for a kit. This one I wanted to put it in natural settings, but keep it simple. I made the palm fronds from feathers and the base material is Durham’s Rockhard Putty with sand on it.
I had fun with the weathering. I used pastel washes, as well as oil paint, along with sponging for the chips. I was happy with the results, but have seen a lot of pretty awesome builds of this little kit.
