Hey folks. Sharing a 4 year old shelfqueen which I finally managed to finish - Tamiya’s Universal Carrier Mk. II. Built up quite easily - only hiccup was me losing the rear decal with the number and insignia. Nice kit, gave me a bit of time to practice figure painting. Thanks for looking!
Nice job! That is the same kit I post on April 5th.
Same decaleing as I did also.
I added some photo etch did you?
It was my first build in over 50 yrs.
Once again great paint job and weathering on both vehicle and figures!
Have you considered adding an antenna?
Thank you! I just saw your build - you did an excellent job Nice detailing on the figures and the equipment. I’m not very good with photo etch unfortunately - I prefer styrene as much as possible. Could definitely use some practice.
Thanks Joe. I forgot about the aerials - I’ll add one to the kit when I manage to stretch some plastic over a candle again.
You can also use the thin electric guitar strings…they will look great and don’t
bend so easily.
Looks amazing. A small kit that has a big story to tell
Brilliant rendition of this kit!
Wow, Fabulous dust job. Not too much, not too little, just right.
Yup! Guitar strings are pretty nice, been using them for other projects. I’m just saving nowadays because I’m nearly out of supply - I don’t actually have a guitar and got the strings for free from a friend who was discarding them hehe
Thanks Chris! I appreciate Tamiya throwing in stowage and crew figures - they add a lot of life to the kit. I wanna improve how I paint them
Thanks Karl! Pretty enjoyable kit, would love to build a Wasp version in the future.
Thanks a bunch Jack!
