This mega transporter conversion is coming along well. Some of the more major structural changes, all done with 040 & 060 styrene, have been largely completed – meaning that I’ve been concentrating on some of the finer detail most recently.
I don’t think I’ve ever expected how many rivets this thing needed. I’ve been using the “small hex bolts” fine detail from ZINGE INDUSTRIES (based in the UK). I’ve used this company time and again and their accessories really are great – it’s why I recommend them at the bottom of this blog.
I’ve still got a long way to go yet. Notably, the transported tanks have yet to arrive in the mail. Small tracks are to added at the rear, the trailer needs to be completed, including the loading ramps and the front bay. I would estimate this being around 60% complete, so far. It is, by far, the most detailed model I’ve created to date.
In the next few posts I’m thinking of uploading some how-to’s, as opposed to just the results.
