I have actually started the lower hull of the large transporter, but the weather is so nice, I have been spending more time in the garden drinking Gin and Tonic, or when not drinking Gin and Tonic, going out on the old Ducati.
But some progress is being made…just very slowly…
It is big, grey and getting painted.
I have started with the upper hull and the engines, I wanted to do a multi grey pattern like the Enterprise D, well a bit like it anyway.
I will be painting most of the upper hull of the GR-75 Transporter a few colours, grey and gray. Well I actually have about four versions of grey and plan to paint all the panels in different greys. I have started on the nose section, so if it goes wrong, I can just respray that bit.
This resin Inquisitor Car from Wargame Exclusive is a great looking model, another I have been delaying in painting.
Being of a Batmobile type design, I thought I would paint it black, but black is such a hard colour to do. So I decided on dark Panzer Grey instead…which is nearly black…
After a long cold and damp winter, a window of opportunity to undercoat the beast was approaching.
I still had a couple of last gasp decisions to make, I had been undecided on which sort of vertical thrust engine nozzles to use.
In the end I went for the larger of the types I made made.
I also added a recess to the upper hull and a couple of what can be called missiles. Although bits of sprue would be a more accurate description.
With all the engine nozzles finally glued on, it is looking pretty good.
I added more than a few rivets…
I still really like the rear view, the engine configuration looks great.
So now it is ready for undercoating.
