    That is why I've been working 3 day weeks for a month... not fun, hard to keep the bills paid

    Ok I tried mixing techniques from Plastic modeling with my paper craft. I've tried to dirty up the FV101
    The first pic is the front view of the FV101 main hull as built,

    And the next is dirtied up.

    The left side.

    And dirtied up.

    And finally the rear

    and dirtied.

    not bad but not the effect I was hoping for, I'll try another technique latter.

    I just want to take a moment to thank those of you who view these models and post your thoughts, that is the essence of what this forum is for,
    Thank you all.

    I started on the turret today but didn't get far, the turret hull is done with the blast doors and ammo container in place.

    I'll try to work on it some more tomorrow.

    I agree. I think that some people don't understand that just letting it be known that they looked at the model, and saying a simple "Good job" goes a long way. I am still taken with the weathering you did! :)

    A little update: I'm back to working full time so hobby time is cut down.
    The gun tube is rolled and installed along with the mantlet Mantle? (sic?)
    anyhoo here are the pics.


    enjoy and more updates to come.

    Nice straight barrel. Looking good.

    I too like the weathering. Never though of weathering afterwards, I always though it would have to be on the kit. :cry:

    thanks. I always weather my other subjects so why not paper.
    the seam is on the bottom and it is visable but from the side or above it looks good.

    FV101 Final

    FV101 Scorpion finished.


    My fingers couldn't fold the grebelies for the top of the turret, and I mangled the first crewman so I installed two crew and closed the third hatch.


    I tried using tweezers to fold the little pats and still ripped them. So I added an antenna from stretched sprue.


    I'll get started on my next build shortly. Thanks everyone
