Wow, great work Stef!


Thx for the kind words Colin. I am waiting for the nuts and bolts now. as I already got 580 holes predrilled, so it will take some time... Still some missing, but I might just nor predrill them as they are hidden inside the frame.

580 holes pre-drilled!? Holy crap! You have the patience of a saint. I tip my hat to you sir.

I am actually not, which is why a flying baseball had smashed the tender previously and in the aftermath had to be repaired. This "kit" is a good practice for patience however😂.

Stef - First time thru the pgs of this impressive build, and can only admire your dedication and determination. Not a loco guy, (well maybe back in the day ) but your detailed descriptions, info, and progress are much appreciated!
Makes one want to read up a bit on the "Age of Steam".

Beautiful use of mixed media, and the "if it ain't right, redo it!" approach is admired as well. Not your everyday subject matter either.
Looking frwd to how you advance the painting stage and the start of the diorama!

Cheers
Dave

Hi Stefan!
It's great to see this coming along. I'm sorry I couldn't comment any more on Brit Modeller but I got booted due to a dispute with an over zealous administrator.
Any who, such is life.
Your work continues to inspire and personally, I'd consider this build to be a good source of reference material
Must go, but will be stopping in here to see how things are going
Bye for now
Si

Thanks guys.
I got some parts done but ordered way too few bolts and screws, so need to wait for new shipments and my little nephew takes a lot of my spare time into his possession ^^.
Trying to get the reviews finished, then back to the train.
Madhatter, sucks, I was wondering what had happened since you suddenly disappeared. Glad to know that you are here, will pm you.

While the train is waiting, the G10 is falling together. The IRONSIDE kit is quite bad, despite apparently being a new remake of the old one... after some layers of paint it looks ok, however I guess. It will be good for the background and just as some stuff for the rear of the dio and it is also good to try my 2 new airbrushes and colours.
Panzergrey primer and some lighter grey. Later I sprayed white on the larger surfaces, but I had not taken a picture, however. Not sure if it passes the the critical viewers' standards.

The first 2 layers of Rotbraun:

I will mask the red parts once painting the final layer onto the frame and roof.
And finally the messy workbench
Hope you like it,
Prost, beer time now,
/Stefan

Great work – I’ve never seen a built-up Ironside (resin?) kit before, all I remember is they were very expensive kits (in Oz anyway) years ago. Lots of dirt & grime to come? Nice workbench, now I see that essential modeller’s tool – the Mauser rifle. So that’s how you made those holes in the BR52 chassis

Haha,
No, as gun laws are super strict here and I do not own a license to be allowed to own a gun, the barrel is filled with stuff, so it is demilitarized 😭😭😭. Would be fun though punching holes with the Mauser. I shot a friend's Mauser in Canada, while we were hunting beavers and deer, quite a 💥 bang.

The G10 is no resin btw. It was fairly priced I thought, but considering its abysmal quality, it is massively overpriced. I am eagerly waiting for the Thunder Models G10! (Sadly LZ Models only got it in resin... and I am no resin fan) but luckily Libor supplied all his info to TM! I hope he gets a cut of TM's earnings!
