Staghound MK I late version (Italeri 1/35)
« on: April 16, 2011, 09:43:00 AM »
Last year I've begun that kit for a French group build, but I did not finished it in the delays. I will restart the build soon (as soon as the KV-1 will be finished in fact).

Here are the work already made, step-by-step...

The kit:


I will add Eduard's photoetch




The kit contents




The photoetch. Three, not two...


The decal sheet. I will of course opt for the Belgian...


First elements removed from the sprue, and the third PE from Eduard

First steps. Removing of plastic, to be replaced by PE


Episcopes. More realistic than the plastic, but not easy to form...


PE again, and tyres. You will note my "home-made" tool for the manipulation of the little PE parts: toothpick + Blu Tack


Sanding of the excess of glue


Again PE

The Eduard's jewel on the PE sheet: the interior of the turret!!!




Then the forward machinegun


But back on the turret interior. The work was not simple. All the plastic but one part was removed and replaced by PE

And that will gives what follows:




Nice, isn't it? Yes, but...
... When I wished to continue, I constated that I formed and glued the PE inverting the sides!!! The interior is outside and the exterior inside...

After the need to calm my nerves, I dismantled all the work made...

With the correction made, I continued to work on that turret interior, forming little PE elements




And, progressively, the interior is more detailed






What will be seen when the work will be finished is something like this:

See the last photo just above, and the modification with the replacement of plastic by PE


The leader trap






The light...

... And, again, back on the turret...
I was annoyed because the interior is splendid thanks to Eduard's PE; but it was also so empty without ammunition...
I visited my preferred hobbyshop (Tankit, Charleroi) and my friend MichaŽl found this for me in its stock


I prepared the ammos for painting, like this


Then, gluing of the lateral doors




The front windows. One is open, the second closed


The part #43 of the kit is replaced by Evergreen and PE


Some work on the rear door traps


Again, some PE




Preparation again: some plastic removed, to be replaced with PE


... And here we are. I will resume my work soon...

After more than one year in stand by on the shelves, I restart the work - My goal is to finish all the kits I've begun before to start new ones (except the kits received for review of course)...

White airbrushed. Looks nice...
