TOPIC: The Duke Finishes One in November

The Duke Finishes One in November 24 Nov 2019 18:09 #1

Hello everyone. Awhile ago; I thought I'd finished my Nagmachon, but when I took the pics I noticed a few things. So, at first I was going to post this pic:



But then I noticed the crooked box on the side of the fender. Not good. Then when I wanted to post this pic:



...I noticed the black smudge on the back of the armor. So, I came up with an idea....


And now I can finally post the officially finished model.


Here it is with the box fixed in front:



And now for my solution to the black smudge. I decided to make it look like someone took a shot at it:



And the final view:




I tried to get a closer pic of the 'damage' but couldn't get the camera to focus on it. This was the best I could do:




That was the first time I'd ever done battle damage like that before. I'm pretty happy with it. Thanks all for looking in, comments are welcome.

Mark, that is 1/72 scale?

I couldn't imagine trying to do the photoetch detail work on that. I have a hard enough time with 1/35. :)

Looks awesome!

Cheers,
James

Mike, Luiz and Paul, thanks! I'm so thrilled to have finished this. I think it's the best job I've ever done on an ACE kit to date!

James, yes it is 1/72 scale. I was fortunate that the screens came in sheets and were actually pretty easy to attach. I have to admit, they do make this model look amazing! Thanks for the compliment!

Great work - the screens really make this shine. I love your shot hit on the rear panel too. :rockon

Good job addressing the issues Mark. Battle damage is convincing. :thumbsup
I told you photobucket sucks...

Thanks Ian! I appreciate it very much.

Thanks Bob! I'm glad I was able to make it look convincing. It was a unique experience for me adding that.
