Weeeee .. I finally finished the Kröte. All that was left was to make a base, and a bit of weathering.
Not much to tell actually … I’ll let the pictures speak for themselves…. I hope they will at least 😀
I’m getting close to the finishline with my Kröte, but it hasn’t been withouth tears.
I think I’ve broken just about every single possible part on the Kröte .. Even the legs … How fumbly can one guy be. 😀
But I got the legs repaired. However they’ve been glued in a position, which makes the model a bit “back-heavy”, and I fear that will result in another broken leg with time, so at the moment I’m considering either making a base, that tip the model a bit forward, or attack the glued knee-joints with a saw, to fix the posture.
Oh well .. enough whinning … let’s see some pics, of the kit prior to weathering.
I hope the next Kröte-post will be a “It’s finished” and not a “Oh well, I ended up smashing it against the wall” post 😀
A week ago, I attended the big hobbyfair Intermodellbau in Dortmünd, Germany. This is what I brought home.
A Styrene/Balsa Chopper
Some Magic Sculpt
Misc. Mr. Hobby products
A 1/700 Prince of Wales (will be used as a donorkit for a StudioScale project)
I had hoped to find more donorkits for a couple of upcoming StudioScale project …. but I didn’t …. so instead I used my remaining money for a kit, that I’ve dreamt about for half a year.
The Hasegawa 1/350 IJN Aircraft Carrier Akagi
See how happy (Goofy) I look 😀
All in all, a fantastic and enoyable day in company with a couple of good friends.
