RG-31 Kinetic

May 23, 2017 · in Armor · · 6 · 2.1K

Hello gents. After a long period of me trying to sell this kit, decided to build it after all 🙂

The kit as such has its problems(mainly many voids in plastic in the undersurface), but putty can fix it all. Replaced the unusable M2 gun with a LiveRezin one and scratched the mount around it. Did some scratcbuilding inside(SINCGARS,DUKE,seatbelts),added hydraulic actuators for the roof hatches, LED lights,wiring for them,DEF wheels(kits are rubbish),wiring for the under surface(hydraulic lines,brake lines,electric),made the DUKE antenna.

Painted with gunze paint,weathered with oils for the filter,brown wash,pigments and speckling with various stuff.

Since i took the pictures, i made a new base which i will show you in a few days.

  1. It looks great, Matija! Beautifully done.

  2. Glad you decided to build it...turned out pretty good after all, didn't it? 🙂

  3. Great work - very realistic finish!

  4. I saw a You Tube video of one of these being built and decided I HAD TO have one... then I saw the price and the feeling went-away !

    Love this subject and you've done a superb model, Matija... well modelled, sir.
