Ok folks, so here is my build diary for my attempt to build a radio controlled replica of a Russian T72 tank. I haven't decided yet if i will just follow the build as per the instructions, or 'try' to attempt a bit of customization like the other build logs on this forum. I should warn you that i am not adverse to a bit of plagiarism where i feel it necessary and it's something i feel i can actually accomplish with my limited experience (and let's face it there are some excellent build ideas on this topic!).

Please feel free to pass comment on my build, whether it be to advise or criticise, and any suggestions gratefully received!



Here are my before and after shots of Pack 1, stages 1 to 5. The reason the rear container is not fitted is because i managed to lose the screw! thankfully CS has come to my rescue and is sending out a replacement.

Thanks for looking
Gray

Nice start Graham, hope you have fun building this and well done for starting a build diary. Cool ThumpUp

I wouldn't worry about plagiarism, the whole point of posting builds of the same model is to share experiences with others and to hopefully help each other with ideas - if people don't want their ideas copied then they shouldn't share them, lol! Laugh Cool ThumpUp

Hi Phil Thanks for looking and the comments Cool i actually fancy having a go at the water transfer process, it looks easier than airbrushing, but will have to see how it goes.
