Well folks this has also been on the bench for a while.  Slowly working on it.

As I said in the Hawk thread I have had little desire to build and even less desire to post anything.  

 

I have however over the last few months slowly worked on this kit.  

 

To date this is what I have accomplished.

 

 

And even some on the engine.

 

 

Overall not too many issues that were unknown.  This build is part of a buddy build on Facebook.

 

 

All comments, critiques, and criticism are encouraged.

I know how you feel Joe. I've  been pretty uninspired over the past 6 years. Trying to get something over the finish line. Glad to see your building armor. Nice start so far. I hear these Takom kits are very nice.

Thank you both for looking in.  Honestly still not that motivated but more than a couple of weeks ago.

Oh that looks great Joe! 

 

I've been in a sort of funk sorta like that, I haven't finished anything all year. I just keep pulling new stuff out, fiddling with it, but never finishing anything...

Many thanks.  Funks are not fun to be honest.

Come now, snap out if it. It happens now and then and as a matter of fact I fellt the same way a couple of months back but I got bit again so back to the bench. I'm switching gears from planes to armor for a different flavor.

That is quite an excellent kit with tons of details. It's looking really good so far and will be pulling up a chair to follow along.

I have in my stash # 2047 with the Henchel Turret w/Zimm and it looks impressive. I have several Dragon, Takom and Rayfield Tigers in the stash so I will be starting some of them soon.

Guess what is back on the bench.

 

Tacom 1/35 King Tiger.  

 

Did just a little since the last time I showed it.  Not much to be honest.  Had to refresh my mind as to how I was going to tackle it.

 

One thing that is done is the cuts are made.

 

 

 

More to come.

You've got more guts than me to make cuts like that!
