Menzi muck dio Finished

Post #1 by niner » Fri May 30, 2014 11:01 am

A good morning dio building this morning before my daughter drags her backside out of bed!

It's not finished but for now the mold had a coat of paint last night and then this morning the PVA glue came out to add some grass, bushes and some rocks. There is still a lot to do, i just need to nip into the local quarry to pick up some fine dust that collects under the conveyor belts. This will be put down so I can add tyre and track marks in and then seal it with a PVA spray.

I've bought a JOAL Morooka tracked tipper to add to it. I plan on weathering that a bit. It should arrive in the post today.

The pics so far.

Any points or criticism to improve it welcome as always. :-)

It's 1:50.

A nice little model but debatable if it's worth the £120 pricetag.

Well, lets be honest, are these things ever finished?

Here are a few photos of the finished article. I really need to get to grips with sorting a good background for the photos.

Wow this is great, there is so much detail! I might have to try something similar to this. Great work!
