A friend at work gave me this kit. This is my first adventure in 1/6 scale. I though while I was building I would post info.
This is the kit. The instructions are very basic.
and the parts.
I started with the ammo box. The two halves went together with large seams.
I then started with the rear legs on the stand.
I had quite a bit of seam clean up on these parts as well. While these were drying I worked more on the ammo box.
I still have some filling to do on the box. The box insert is not glued in place yet but I found it handy to help brace the box while I cleaned it up.
There is quite a bit of clean up needed for mold lines but it has been easy to take care of so far. This is much bigger than what I am used to building.
Two questions for those who know. First, is the base left in bare metal steel or is it painted in OD green? Second, is there a way to bend and shape the ammo belt or will I have to separate the links to do this? Any other tips/pointers would be appreciated.
