This seemed like a good idea when I bought this online, I thought the Toons style design was quite fun and might work as a steampunk tank, but now I am not so sure. This Meng Toons King Tiger is more likely to work as a Weird War II tank.
The model itself took a few minutes to build, really not very many parts.
The tracks are soft rubber so they can actualy work, but I do not want that, so I have glued the wheels in place.
When it came to painting, I originally did a green and brown cammo pattern with my airbrush but I did not like it. So I went back and did a dark gray that I will highlight a bit.
As previously posted, I went for plain German grey. I still have to decide if I am going to add some transfers.
The mech frenzy continues, with the Westwind Jotun being the next one I wanted to get finished.
German grey I think for this chap, nothing fancy, just grey.
This was a simple olive paintjob really as I wanted it to be an American Mech.
I may yet add a white star transfer or two.
There is a mech frenzy going on at the moment, I have a small collection of Westwind mechs that were the result of a Kickstarter some time ago. They have been sitting up on a shelf, undercoated, but unfinished for far too long.
I added a heavy machine gun to the top of this Mech to give it a bit of defensive fire, I just need to get some suitably American colours on to it. That will be olive green then.
This West Wind quad tracked gun is a model that will fit into several games, Weird War II, Steampunk and Sci-Fi. So I want to paint it in a generic colour that will fit any army scheme. It was originally planned for my robotic Mechanica army, so I suspect it will be finished in grey or Gun Metal.
When I need a break from painting the rather large transport, I am returning to the excellent Westwind Mechs.
I am still deciding what colours to go for, one will likely be for my British Steampunk force so may be a patriotic red, white and blue. The other may get done in grey.
