Very well done, John. The finish, accessories, and subtle "understated" weathering are perfect. Simple base set's it off nicely.

Take care,
Rick

Hello John,

Very nice job on the WMIK. A quick question: it seems you reduced the height of the WMIK cage from what Hobby Boss provided, by how much and where from?

Pics would be appreciated!

Thanks again and good job.

Regards,

Greg

Great work John, an excellent finish and superb groundwork.
One minor nitpick from me, you might want to add the clamp and wingnut to the antenna base just to finish it off.



Cheers,
Paul

Greg,

The WMIK frame supplied by Hobbyboss is too high (about 4-5mm). It's easy to tell this when you compare where the spare wheel is located in photographs with what HB provide.

My solution (inaccurate though it is) was to simply chop the bottom 4mm off the frame. The side bars don't really suffer from this treatment, but the framework behind the driver does. You end up losing the lower part of the crossbars. Once complete, you can't really see the problem.

However, short of completely rebuilding the WMIk frame, there isn't another solution.

It has been pointed out to me that the weapons ring sits too far to the rear. Again, I didn't correct this, but it wouldn't be too hard to do.

Frame chopped down


Frame before it was reduced in height

John

Thanks Paul - I meant to add the wingnut but had forgotten to do so!
