Wow 1:16 scale... How long will it be?Viele Grüße,
So the build have started....
With buildgroup1 the hull. I did of course get the laserparts for this model :) and it seems like the partsfit is very good here. Havent been able to find english instructions for this model...so I make it in a slow pace with a lot of research....but there seems to be very few builds out there of this model.
Ok..enough said, on to the build. A lot of frames here, and I did some custom stiffeners to assure a 90degree angle between the formers.
Top and bottom view
And a side view.
Next will be the drivers department :)
main battle tanks in Norway are a bit unusual - I'll wish you luck !

Started to make the cockpit. Many small parts in this buildgroup....So I only managed to do the right side in one evening..
The drawing and the main layout of the cockpit
Main part scored and cutted and almost all parts for the right handside is ready. Some levers and adjustmentpin to go
Good luck, Johhny, hope you don't hit any mines!Mit herzlich grusse!
Hello! happy new year to all of you :)
Drivers cabin is done..a lot of work for almost nothing since the inside will nearly be visible through the drivers hatch..
Plenty of details inside the cabin
Continued skinning the beast...
The fit of the skin is not the best I have seen...but its good enough with some help with trimming and paint..
The front part. A lot of parts and details on this side of the tank...Also started to build up the underside of the hull. The shafts and other parts.
good progress on your Twardy. It is a pitty that the nice details of the driver's cabin are nearly vanished but you and we know that they are still there.
beautiful Progress on Your Twardy...
don't worry...the builder knows what is inside there and that's the reason for building reports...
Had to try to make one of the roadwheels. Oh my...what a timeconsuming job it was on this model. Used about 4 hours to make half a wheel :)
It contains a lot of parts as you can see of the drawing.
Its a lot of nice details. Also did some weathering...or accident if you like :)
This kit is really a massive one, and will take some time to finish :)
But as I see it..the pleasure with this hobby is so great that the time does not count.
So lets continue with the wheels..
Im not used to this type of drawings so I use a bit of time to study parts and drawings...And have not found any buildreports of this kit that are much helpful..so I struggle on :)
More next week :)
I have decided to make the tank in several sections. First section to be finished is the underside of the hull.
The part isA bulldozer blade is mounted on the T-72's nose and can be deployed to dig firing positions or clear debris.
Drawing tells me the number of parts is 50..
The top side is laminated to 1mm lasercut part :) Just have to say that the laserpackage for this tank is really huge!!! Almost complete covering of 1 and o,5mm parts.
Not very strange it was pricy :)
Another neat thing with this model is the 1:1 drawing. A lot of them :) As you can see here, the finished part is placed on the drawing.
Next was to start making the cylinders. Pretty straight forward building here.
A lot of bulbes or some halftubedshaped parts on the underside
Im not sure what this is for parts...maybe someone can enlighten me??
Managed to delete the picture of the finished parts..will do another soon :)
The roadwheels of a tank...yes, I have currently some fun with those of my Jagdtiger, too. But your roadwheels are much more detailed. and the testbiuld is very nice.
Next is the inside of the front mudguards.Not very difficult, but getting it nicely done....is another matter.
Some parts laminater to 1mm laserparts. And did also some preshaping ot the main part :)
Inside of the mudguard and the preshaped part.
The first one in place :)
More next week!
Have a really nice weekend fellow modellers!!
A lot of work but the result is really great. It is looking very realistic.
Continuing making parts for the side. Since im no expert on tanks..im not sure what this parts are...
But here we go :)
Drawing and some of the parts to be used.
Also had to make some rivets/boltheads. Theese are 1mm in diameter.
Here I have cutted and laminated the parts, plus some of the laserparts. The finished parts placed on the 1:1 drawing.
Then placed on the side. There are 3 such part on each side.
Next will be the upper rollers and some other details :)
More next week!
Great job, Johnny. This really looks like a lot of small stuff.Ein schönen Gruß aus Schläfrig-Holstein.
"Wenn das Ihre Lösung ist, dann hätte ich gern mein Problem zurück."
big result onthe side, with a lot of mini parts to do.
Thanks a lot Bernd and Volkmar!!
Update on the P91 :)
Making of the upper rollers.
First the drawing.
The roller is made of 27 parts all in all with nuts and bolts included
I made the base plate for the roller first. Then cutted all parts ready.
Added some disks and nuts on the plates to make a more realistic look.
So lets get started with the rollers :)
I hope you dont mind going in details on how I do it...maybe you do it otherwise then me, but here are my ways of doing it :)
I always start with painting the edges..and since im colorblind it a challenge :) . I have to take the model with me to the colorstore to have the colors scanned
and then make colors out of that. works fine, but minimum quantity is 0,5 liter of paint..so you can imagine I have A LOT of paint at home :)
After painting the edges, I do some preshaping of the part. Placing the strip in my hand and use a wooden dowel to shape it by rolling it on the part until I have the desired shape.
I roll it so the edges of the cirkle overlap
Then I glue the edges together.
Next is to put the disc in. I put in the front side first, the fit has to be tight, so a bit of sanding is often required.
I found a picture of the real roller,and I could see I had to add some details to it :)
Next is the inner part.
This part is 6mm in diameter.
First shaping with a 2mm copper rod
Roll it so the edges overlap. Then glue the edges together.
Then press the disks in and glue.
The rollers are finished with nuts and bolts, ready for paint.
Placed on the 1:1 drawing
Then I glued it to the tank...maybe not very wise since im sure to break it off when handling the model when the build continues :)
Next will be the base and suspension for the roadwheels.
In the meantime..say hello to Franz krupp :) He is the driver of this tank!
Im not very good in figure painting as you might see, but when he is finished painted im sure he will look good enough for me :)
So until next time...stay sharp!!
I worked 2 evenings for theese parts..
Watching Tv and having a good time preparing parts after a long days work :) feels good!!
The base structure to the suspension arms placed on the 1:1 drawing
The finished one...Going to check if I can find an image of the real part and maybe pimp it up a bit :)
So here are the result of two evenings work...
So until next time...stay sharp!!
Started to make the "boxes" on top of the left mudguard.
Picky work...takes me forever to finish just one of the boxes..
But its fun to build, so im just picking on :)
First the drawing
Next to cut the parts roughly...and start the assembly of the main construction
Cut out the strips...and make the halfpipe construction in a way...
Assembled and started to make the hinges
3 done...3 to go...
parts wating for monday :)
Great work, and one can see what level of detail is possible in this big scale.
Keep on like this, it will be a masterpiece.Viele Grüße,
