Now to beat the land-speed record. She just got here and I'm one hour in to building! Gotta love the engineering on a Tamiya kit!



I'll keep you posted, Jon

Jon,

You will check personally how quick build the new Tamiya Matilda is. You can complete comfortably it in ten days if you want, amigo (see mine for instance).

Keep us posted.

Hi all, I hope everyone is doing well. I finally got a bit of spare time, so here is some of my progress between last night and this afternoon.....


Built and ready for paint

Started with the base coat of Buff and it's highlights


Followed by Light Grey, because the Blue they called for would have looked really bad.(Sorry Tamiya, but you know it's true.)


...And finally green.


some decals, they went well enough, I screwed up the turret decals so I had to go back in and paint them...thats why the color difference.


Now for the part I like...






So at this point I need to figure out how I'm going to display the little "Queen" and show off the beauty of this little kit. Gotta say she's been a real blast to work on.

Thanks again, Jon
