Just WTF?

 

I don't build armour, but I've been bent over the table and given extreme instruction by the powers that be that I should build some armour. For the sake of my poor ass, I need to comply......but with what?

 

I'm entering this with the 1:35 Tamiya Matilda Mk.III/IV in Soviet Lend-lease colours, courtesy of Echelon decals. The kit will have an RB Productions barrel, and that is it as far as aftermarket hardware goes. I also need to learn some techniques as I know nothing about armour.

 

One reason for building a Matilda is that these were built at the Loco Works, about 1/2 a mile from where I live. This is more of a local history thing for me.

 

Bear with me.

I've been bashing this one since the start of the GB and I have the model more or less complete. I'll post more images this weekend. 

 

Assembly has been a piece of piss, with everything falling together without any fit issue. Almost a shake and bake. Not as pretty as a piece of Nazi armour, but still full of character.

This is certainly a very quick build. Here are the hull, turret, and images of the finished assembly.

 

It's a great kit, and fun to build. I've not glued the barrel as I'm replacing this with a metal one from RB.
