Interesting commission this one! It came fully assembled and expertly modified, so just a paint job for me! ( well I did do some tinkering...) Not sure of the manufacturer, but a lovely piece all the same. The request was to decal and paint as per the example below, so you can make your own conclusions on whether I achieved the brief!
As I understand, Rafa "Archiduque" is painting the crew, so the final ensemble should be pretty impressive!
As always, you should know the drill by now.... more pictures on flickr!
Been waiting to get my hands on some of these for a while, so really pleased when two turned up. Some mods, as always, but nothing major. I remodelled the rear portion of the tarpaulined version and added some stowage and rear frame on the other. Adding the windows was a bit tricky as you'll note they have rounded corners! Also a two part build as they have drivers! Anyway, the one with the full tarpaulin is now with its new owner, the one above is spare, so is for sale if anyone is interested
As always loads of full fat pictures of this one and some sneaky other commissions up on my flickr:
Now on a roll! All the bits are now complete, have managed to make the components flexible enough to depict the bridge either stowed or deployed. Only have two bridge sections at the moment but you should get the idea!
Close up of the deplored front arm. The piston has been made extended so you can cut it down to the housed position. You need three of these.
Close up showing the t55 hull mods, all are placed on at the moment
These are the securing frames that go between the individual bridge sections. The pistons will be duplicated to reflect the two attached to the top of the assembly
Finally all the bits, some will require duplicating. I've done all I can now so I'll deliver it to shaun to see if it can be moulded. I am aware so of the bits may need changing to be able to mold them, but let's hope not too much.
