A7V Schnuck
« on: April 07, 2018, 03:06:57 PM »
Had a bit of a clean-up and found this old project lurking at the back of the bench with only a few details to finish, so a bit of glue and a squirt of paint later...







It has a full interior too, just visible through the various doors and shutters.

Very neat, where are the wings lol
Is it 1/35?  The A7V to me is so ugly and steampunk, you can almost dream up steam driven robot storm troopers coming out the mist behind it.

What else do you have hidden on your workbench Justin?

Very cool, Jason!  I love it!  Just starting to get into vehicles, myself.
Cheers,

Thanks guys. Yes Ray, it’s the 1/35 Meng kit. If you really want to get steampunk about it imagine it kit bashed with a VW Kombi!

Thanks, chaps. Call me a heretic, but I'm a little bit bored with rigging and struts, so I've decided to go 'off reservation' for a while and build Schnuck's grandson...

Heretic! Actually I used to build an Armor vehicle or two back in the day. Always liked the Panther and the Ambush scheme.
