Thanks for the interest helps keep my motivation going.

Just done some painting so far. The road wheels suspension arms and hull coated with my new air gun.

Nice but of progress. I always find cleaning up and painting road wheels the most tedious part of an armour build. 

I don't find it to bad. Tho it is annoying getting the colours to not cross sometimes. Although making any kind of Churchill tank is an exception. Or German for that matter. So so many road wheels ha ha

Never built HobbyBoss so interesting to see how it builds up…….looking good 

The level of detail is pretty damn good. Love the fact that there is actually torsion bars modeled in and fitted together properly. Unfortunately it's gonna all be glued in place as the plastic doesn't have enough strength to actually work. And the shock absorbers can't pivot or move angle wise. But it all fits and looks great together IMG_20240121_212256421.thumb.jpg.4112bcced304fb44d3ff1f937b883397.jpgIMG_20240121_212837063.thumb.jpg.17f4172ff03e67fbfedeaa2bed7e5a8c.jpg

All of the suspension arms have now been fixed in, Road, Sprocket and return rollers painted and some weathering added, tracks have also been cut from sprues,cleaned up and primed + painted.IMG_20240225_183815461.thumb.jpg.1f90003d2a052543fe0d4be6b4945419.jpgIMG_20240225_183758614.thumb.jpg.278d1085fcdfc35c3324ddf68daa2a55.jpgIMG_20240225_183934174.thumb.jpg.39e29c974658621e18a33a2356d4e383.jpgIMG_20240225_183836485.thumb.jpg.cdcc52fd2a7160fed2af3110c8d2a565.jpgIMG_20240225_183857434.thumb.jpg.839aa03969a0f362f807118b0efa6ce1.jpg

It took some time to get most of the simpler parts stuck together.

And then everything has now been primed

Been working on little bits over the week. Got most of the engine parts painted in a dase colour.

Will post photos later 

But I have painted the fuel tanks in a patchy sort of way and then detailed and weathered them with some washes. Definitely getting better with that sort of thing

Abit more work. Got some nice things for weathering. 

IMG_20240303_211342_755.thumb.jpg.720d219e4467bedfcd5033510128ecfc.jpgIMG_20240303_211348_715.thumb.jpg.997adb5327e3cea767b5d367345000dc.jpg

And put the engine together. Still got the exhausts air intake pipe. And some other bits to put on. But it's coming together.

Just had a little go dry fitting the engine and transmission and it's starting to look pretty good.

Not too good at blending. But it's definitely looking pretty good.

Loving the detail on the engine. Painted the rocker covers with a more olive drab look. Think it really makes the engine just look that extra bit IMG_20240311_200927494.thumb.jpg.b40df26785741a6b86fa59524faa39d5.jpgIMG_20240311_200933836.thumb.jpg.6851b1e0e00b3bd51c60c7d42179fe2d.jpgIMG_20240311_200940271.thumb.jpg.c91884cdec2bf047abb8148d8fce9fb4.jpg

It has been a while since I put an update out. 

Both sets of tracks are now on and all glued in place. I found the lugs for the sprocket wheels to be a bit to small and short so had to bend them out a bit at the ends to stop the wheels from falling off while the glue was drying. Weathering is all on now for the tracks and lower hull. Looks good I think 😅

The tracks themselves need some dirtying up but I'll get round to that sooner or later.
