BIG MOLE

Alphans
Hi guys well I have been underground lately and been working hard at building a BIG mole, and here she is after 3 weeks work, not as big as I could have made her but not bad I think, I would be interested in hearing what you guys think about her. It was a total scratch build and I mean scratch, each wheel each track and all those nice rivets. I will be honest this is a static model but as you can see the body lifts as it should and even though the tracks do not move they look pretty good. the model is approx 30 inches long 14 inches high and 9 inches wide. the spiral on the nose was made from das clay and coated in pva glue before painting. The main chassis and wheels where sparyed and the body hand finished using Humbrol paints. please be honest with your comments as this will help me to improve my next model, we model makers have to stick together.The model will be on display at TRANSPORT MODELS OF PRESTON next week if your passing the shop pop in and take a close look.

regards Barrie ( the old guy )
