BZ-38 ReFueller

Postby Spud » Thu May 11, 2017 9:40 pm

This is one i have been interested for a while So again while i wait on My Stuff from the Far lands to arrive for other projects i made a start on this one

This will be done in White Wash :D and Maybe refueling something along the lines. I cant find many photos of these yet but only had a quick look.

Now this is Kit has Many Many parts... Removing parts is fine from the sprue most of the time but they require a lot of clean up, The axles i to removed some lugs because of how it was molded.

The wheels look great once together but there a pain in the ass to do being so many parts

This was a pain in the ass to do and it does not look Square, Time will tell.

The Axles were ok except for the fact i just off some connection lugs that i didn't even notice. but they should be ok.

this kit is a pain in the ass. Mounting points are not marked very clearly on the parts not the instructions. i started doing the brake lines at 2 today it is now just gone 5 took me that long to figure out how they mount.

Progress is slow but at least the rear is done, now it the front axel and brake lines no doubt and that should be all the fiddly bits done.

i get the frustrating but your patience is rewarded, nice detail shot of the brake lines and looks good on its wheels, good reference for anyone else considering the build Cheers
