Thanks fellas- glad to know my postings are appreciated and have people actually take the time to say something.



This is a good thing but it would have been nice if DML included the wheels that were common for these Bison I's. These wood spoked ones were used as well but definitely not as much. Looks like they have improved on the breech as well- including the two metal hoops at the back- the Bison kit doesn't have them.

So a few posts of where it's at these days although these pics are from the weekend- can't do much till I get some Humbrol white... and I need it to mix colours for painting the interior.
But I did manage to get the gun together for the most part.

Glad to be of help- something else I noticed today- the PE metal parts that are to go on the sides of the fenders have the wrong numbers on the instruction sheet.

James, the Camokid beat me to it, but it is worth repeating...the metalic finish on the gun carriage wheels is amazing. What's your plan for paint colors on the interior?

I'll throw my hat in on that beautiful smooth steel. So what's your secret?

Great base color on the gun.
Smooth steel with a hint of a fresh rust film, dust on all the corners of the dark base color.
Yeah, cant wait for your next update!

Do you plan to work with differnt grey tones on the vehicle and gun?
