All about AFV and other military model making.
Lockdown build number 2 (well number 1 is continuing the build of the Tamiya 1/35 Matilda) is this modern JGSDF Type 16 (my first modern armour). Being build out of the box with a what-if camouflage scheme - home made digital scheme to be paint[...]
The Tamiya model, whose mold is from 2008, is simple with a correct exploded view and a lot of finesse in detail. In its assembly, following the photos of the time, I removed the sides of the box and built with plastic sheets stringers screwed [...]
Now completed - my 1/35 TAKOM G6 'Rhino' I have done it in to overall brown used by the SA Army during the bush war and up to 1994. It is shown with its spades/feet down and up as these are working. Paints used for main colour - Vallejo 70.921[...]
