1/32 Scale MB 326 K Scratch Build Part 2

August 11, 2020 · in Aviation · · 14 Comments

Time for a little update on the Impala Mk2 or commonly known as the MB 326 K.
Did a little detail work this past week end and built the DEFA30mm cannon, Ammunition Draw as well as the gun sight, I really enjoy scratch building the details, using old bits of resin and wire and pretty much anything i can find that will work. You will also see the avionics bay behind the cockpit and some engine detail and hydraulic lines. Busy with the tail pipe, and then some scribing and a ton of rivets.

Hope you enjoy the pictures and look forward to any comments and questions.

Keep safe,

  3. Hello Marc ! @marc
    Thanks for posting this magnificent update. Your plane is looking wonderful. Besides making your own models completely from scratch, the added details you incorporate into each one are incredible. I have been experimenting with scratch building small parts in an effort to correct a deficiency with a kit supplied part, or to increase the realism of what has been provided in some cases. This is hard to get quite right, but it does seem to get a bit easier as I go.

    You my friend are a master craftsman... I pressed the "liked" button too.

    Stay healthy and safe my friend.

  4. I always hate looking at your models, Marc, since they make me want to take up stamp collecting, or bubblegum cards. 🙂

    Beautiful work as always.

  5. Hi Marc @marc!
    Those scratchbuilds are simply fantastic! I love scratchbuilding, using whatever leftover or raw materials I have at hand.
    Your works are truly master class and I use them as my scratchbuilt guide.
    The Impala come along beautifully.

  6. Coming along great, Marc.

  7. You are really a master craftsman. Wonderfull.

  8. Great progress, Marc.
    Makes me jealous about the results you achieve.
    I will for sure follow the outcome of this build.

  9. The level of your scratchbuilding is unbelievable, Marc. I am really looking forward to seeing this one done.
