The rumors of my demise were greatly exagerated

OK, it's been a little while since I've posted anything to my sadly neglected blog. Proof I'm still alive and building. Admittedly at a snails pace, but I'm still plugging away. I've been dabbling a little bit with Mig Pigments. So far I'm pretty impressed with the results. They're much easier to use than your average pastels.

Here is RPM's FT-17, possibly the most over engineered kit I've ever built. The amount of detail is incredible, but so is the number of parts.

and here is Aces' M3 Panhard armored car. Overall a nice little kit, not bad for a limited run kit. One of aces best.

I also tried pigments on Dragons T-34/76 L11. They really rescued the model. I wasn't at all happy with the pastel job I did on it.

Here is UM's BT-5. I really like this kit, it builds up fairly easily, and has pretty good detail. However, I'm adding Part Photo Etch details and tracks.

Lastly I'm working on Dragons AAVP7A1 with external Armor. Dragon first released this amphibious beast with a diecast metal hull. Thankfully they've followed up with
an all plastic version. I obliterated most of the side detail filling seams, but this will all be covered by the bolt on armor.
