GazzaS Posted May 20, 2021 Share Posted May 20, 2021 When the Takom Pz I came out, I ordered one straight away. But.... looking for figures cooled my ardor for the scale. Jeff Shiu makes great figures... but they ain't cheap, and the the cost of shipping from the US... raises the cost into the realm of not-gonna-happen. So, anyway I settled on the Tamiya guy. I thought "how bad could it possibly be?" After assembling him, I thought something was wrong. Mid way through painting, I realized what it was. His head is not to scale. And... instead of getting him a new head, all they did was extended the chin to almost double what would be proportionally correct. Anyway... despite his Frankenstein face... he's with us for the duration. So... yeah... I started this one a while ago painting the hull tub and assembling some of the suspension, and it's been sitting in a relatively dust free space while I built lots of other stuff. But, with the Albatros in a state of drying, and a cardboard palette full of paints I decided to restart the PZ I and dust up it's chassis and suspension with oil paints... this is another new thing to learn. Here are some pics... feedback and advice... always appreciated. Happy Modelling! 5 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
