Tamiya R-35
Posted by JBRaider on Monday, February 15, 2021 4:30 PM

I don't do a lot of armor but I picked this one up during the lockdown to do something different. Finished it up last year but I thought I would post a couple of pics.

The kit went together in typical Tamiya fashion. It was my first time doing L&L tracks and I had a couple of minor mishaps but the mud effect covered them. Masked off the various colors with poster tack. The black lining was freehand. 

C & C welcome

Oh that's friggin' awesome!!! Great job! 

I've got to pick up one of these- I love the French camo schemes.

Very nice work JB. Like the figure too.

That's a nice build of an unusual tank! Who would have thought Tamiya would do one?  It's really great that the mainstream kit makers are doing WW I and between the wars armor.

Your build looks great.  I really like the paint job.

Thanks all. I was drawn to the paint scheme, wanted to see if I could tackle it.

The new Tamiya figures are great, this one is molded to sit fimly in the hatch.
