Hello all :-)..
Yesterday I finished a fast model in scale 1 / 15. This material is cardboard, cardboard and items from the resin. Building from scratch, of course ... Photos of the construction of the model, etc., are available on my blog - I invite you ....
Yours - Andy

I showed your work off to a few friends and they were amazed!

And you just happen to have my 2 favorite WWI tanks sitting side-by-side too. Very nice work again ... and using mostly cardboard too.

(nice kat)

Jeff, cardboard and paper is a very pleasant material to model ...... Perhaps soon will be even FT17, but this model will have a whole set of resin. For now only the turret is ready and the Renault badge....

Andy, that is some of the most stunning work I have ever seen!

I would love to make one... I don't suppose you can be persuaded to do a complete build log on how you did it? I can't believe that is made from card and paper. Absolutely stunning work!

Hello Murdo .. :-)
Thank you for the nice comment .....
Unfortunately this is only cardboard and paperboard, of course, details are cast in resin, otherwise the construction would take another year :-)
Yours - Andy




This here is ready to send ....

Andrzej, stunning... fabulous looking texture and finish. I am curious to know if that is partly a result of using cardboard. Bird poo - a super detail that really adds to the sense of reality. Also great photos - get the depth of field on photos 2 and 4 below, you had a nice bright day for it!

Agree with Darren that we need a feature.

Thank you again ....
The model is not very difficult - this is probably the sixth :-)....
Murdo - trtacks and other minor things are cast in resin just ... Original details are made ​​of different materials, then the form and casting .... The pictures show what and how ....





Small invoice is made out of paint nitro plus a fine powder (flour, gypsum, talc)


Then fine sandpaper ...


That looks like up close the paint .....


On my blog is to turn everything from the beginning of construction of the model, making rust, paint, weather conditions, etc. .... Just look ......
Greetings to all - Andy
