Valentine Mk.IV | Lend Lease One | MiniArt 1:35

Hi there,

Its been a while since my last post here
but thingz had gone so slow in my life,
that making an another dead workflow thread
hasn't made any sense...

but finnaly I hope I back to old good modeling road.

Part One | The build

Chapter one | The model


The model is new Miniart kit no 35092
I bough it just because I have some spare Friultracks
it reprasent Mk. IV Lend Lease version of Valentine tank,
(attached file shows orginally one of model paintings)



Box contains classic grey sprues with tank parts as well as 5 figures,
small PE and decals and I must say it looks like a standart these days.



When You inspect the box the parts appear to be clean and crispy (really),
and looks suprisingly well, and thats why I decided to make it as OOB model,
with only addition of mentioned Friultracks and maybe some stowage.



Chapter two | Hull and suspension.

So far gluing the hull and suspension (wheels) was a bit tricky...
The really hard candy is to keep symetry and geometry in all dimensions
mostly because of poor engineering for parts connections.
I can only guess how inbox single track links works
combining with this suspension but definatelly can add
day or two additional work





So far model beats me 2:0

Chapter three | Conclusion

For sure I need to finish this one before I get new AFV club model.
And If I can give an advice - wait for AFV club model too.
I am sure it will be a bit better engineered plastic kit
with not so much more money involved - and the boxart version is also supercool.

cheers
Pawel

PS. As long as I do this OOB the historical and tehnical matters are not the issue
but if somebody see some "problematic" areas I'll be happy to know and maybe fix it.

PS2 . Sorry bout my english . Hope at least the phots speaks well.

As far as I see you're a bit dissapointed about this kit, and that's bad news 'cause I was planning to add it to the stash... Good luck though, the lend-lease vehicles are so cool.

Thanks for supprot Guys.

I have some 24/7 work call of duty whole last week
and all works has been stoped.

Anyway I am almost at finish of the hull, and 30% of the turret,
still far to lego style model workflow.





There is need to add some cast textures here and there,
and I am not sure about detail in stowage boxes - I have made some tunning
but I am not really happy about... the question is if I am able to make 6 same lockers?

Alos the placement of figure going to be problemetic
becasue of gun "things" inside turret.

Feel free to comment.

cheers
Pawel

Pawel, your photos are fine. Your English is fine --- much better than my Polish. Like many, I am interested to read your opinions of this kit, and curious to see how it builds up. Diekuje bardzo.

That sedan is a beautiful little kit, eh?

Carry on, and we will enjoy watching your progress.
