m8 greyhound 1/35
« on: April 30, 2016, 05:50:43 PM »
I took a bit of a brake from aircrafts and started an afv for a change, it will be a vignete representing Yugoslav peace keeping contingent in UNEF on Sinai in 1956. The vehicle is well known Tamiya's Greyhound with Eduard photo etched parts, Eduard brassin 0,50 cal machine gun, Jordi Rubio main gun barrel, RB 0.50 cal barrel and Karaya 7.62 mm gun barrel.

The interior is great, no need for too much tuning up, Eduard gives all you need, only the wires are home made, at first step it's all painted in white

The first round of weathering, to get dirty look I always use a wash with burnt umber

Yes, looks good to me too... But, as I made my military duty on tanks (CVRT), if I can give you a tip it's the following: interior can be heavily weathered...

Yes, thank you for the tip, it's all ready done but didn't post it yet, so here we go, the start of weathering, highlighting the shadows

Once again I made a tow cable from brass wire, the main is assembled and the first mr surfacer on the spot, and the first and so far only problem has appeared, after assembling the jerry can holder and put the jerry can on it's place I found out the belt from eduard which should to fix the can on its place and prevent it from falling out is too short, so masking tape again to fix the problem
