Mark IV Female 1/144 Brengun
« on: March 04, 2022, 07:44:03 PM »
Hello everybody, long time no see.

After a long break I am back to modelling and decided to kickstart my modelling mojo with this little resin kit by Brengun.

The assembly of main parts seems rather straightforward, the PE parts will most probably be a different story:







Cheers

Many thanks for the nice welcome, I am really glad to be back in this lovely group!

So far a very relaxing and straightforward build, the part engineering is brilliant. Even gluing the door joints in place went smoothly, although them PE parts are really tiny.







Cheers

Many thanks for your nice comments!

A bit of progress over the weekend, soon she will be ready for painting, only a few parts remain to be added + of course some cleaning and retouches.

She's shaping up beautifully, Ondra! I only have limited experience with the brand* but there are a few of their kits I'd love to get. I'm excited to see your next update!

Many thanks for your nice comments!

Given the fact that I have next to no experience with PE parts this part of the build was a bit of a struggle and the result is far from perfect, but I can live with it.

There are two more parts left to be glued in place and then she gets the first coat of primer.

Many thanks, KiwiZac!

It is time for some paintjob, so she got a coat of Mr. Resin Primer, afterwards Black Surfacer and finally Drooling Bulldog Zinkweiss. Ready for preshading now. :)

Ok, here is what she looks like after decaling, wash and first layer of oil filters.
