Battle of France / Battle of Britain Group Build – 1/35 Tamiya B1 bis French battle tank
Well, I’m not sure what time/date it is in iModeler land, but where I live it’s 11;30 am on 31st October! Here’s my contribution to the group build, Tamiya’s 1/35 kit of the French battle tank B1 bis. Being a Tamiya kit it was easy to build, the only alterations I made were to leave the crew door open
, and to add a radio aerial. This is my first attempt at camoflage painting, and, I’m afraid my weathering technique is a bit heavy handed. As opposed to many other comments on this site, weathering is definitely not my favourite part of modelling. If you’d like more information on the prototype and the kit please have a look at the WIP thread in the group build. Anyway, here it is. Many thanks to Seamus and Martin for organising this, I wonder what the next group build will be?
Thanks for looking, George.
