Ma.K Hover Tank - part six



This set of images shows the continuing detailing work on the generic turret.

The cupola is a section of plastic road wheel mounted on to a 1/2 Euro coin, the weld seams are a mixture of stretched sprue and some thin Green Stuff, rolled out and applied over superglue while the two half-round 'ears' one to either side of the turret are round beads cut in half and then trimmed to shape.

The exposed torch-cut edges to the front of the turret were cut with the tip of a scalpel. The rest of the details is either plastic card or plastic rod.



Most Ma.K tanks I have seen have prominent weld seams on the hull. I reproduced these with thin strips of sticky-back plastic (ex advertising labels that have a very strong glue).

The light to the front is again a bead cut in half and detailed with thin sections of knitting needles. I strengthen the join to the hull by adding a short section of paper clip wire as this looks like it might get knocked.

Nice attention to detail. And it looks cunningly done to avoid sticky out bits which will break off.

So far.
