MensajeTema: Marder Mania part 1 / Gun detail....   Vie 23 Ene 2009, 3:40 am

Greetings,



Well not much progress over the weekend, but some work was accomplished.



First, rivets were added to the outer side, right and left.





Then to match on the inside. I also added the welded on "nuts" for the gas mask container stowage bracket. I only have three, so I decided to leave this one missing.

The close ups really show what a mess I made with the liquid glue... And what appear to be unfilled ejector pin marks. <img src="/images/sad.gif" height="14" width="14" alt="sad.gif"> Those are actually filled with super glue. All of this will disappear under a coat of paint, rest assured.




Left side. Gas mask container is from one of the Tamiya German infantry sets. The strap is from Tamiya tape, and the P/E is from the Hauler set. This set has been very nice to work with thus far.

Box is for stowing the gun sight.





I made the stand off mounts/welded nuts for these as well. The gas mask holder fits the plastic part perfectly, but the strap is not long enough to go around it. Luckily there are extra straps provided so I used one of these to make up the differance.





I have no idea what the cylinder on the left is. It is in all of the photos though, so it is here as well.






More updates to follow,



Cheers,

John

MensajeTema: Marder Mania part 2 / Gun Shields...   Mar 27 Ene 2009, 12:27 am

Alright. The first post. I am behind (of course) but progress is being made. There is actually quite a bit built but not yet photographed.







I have no idea what the proper name for this part is, but it has been tricked out with rivets and various bits. I am using the Nuts and Bolts book as well as Model Art's for reference. Both as superb... But they lead to this, at least for me <img src="/images/happy.gif" height="14" width="14" alt="happy.gif">













Right side of the cradle,









Left side of cradle. There was a lot more work to do on this side. Including hollowing out the sight, and building the support for the hand wheel. P/E "data plate" is from a Dragon Fokker D.VIII I had left over.







Breech, with the first of Jan's P/E that I have installed.









Muzzle cover, sculpted from Kneadatite. I am building a specific Marder, and using a photo for reference. I can not tell, however if this cover is supposed to have the hollow ring on the end. I have seen it on some covers and I thought it looked cool so there it is...







Ready for the armor plates

MensajeTema: Upper hull   Sáb 31 Ene 2009, 5:45 pm

Hi,

As stated in the first post I am building a specific Marder. I was taken by the photo of this Marder for a number of reasons, among them is a chance to try a few things that are new to me. And there is an interesting paint detail...

The down side is that it's hatches are open. It is going to require an interior.

Here is the start of that.



Side walls made from .015 styrene. This will hide all the various voids on the inside of the lower hull sides., and hopefully provide the illusion that the inside and outside are the same plate. There are still a few items to add to the sides. Ammo boxes will be visible so here they are. At this point I also thinned the fenders out and added a strip to form the return on the outer edge. This will make it easier to mimic the damage seen on the fenders.








I opened up the holes in the ammo tubes so the walls appear thinner. Tubes were added below, probably not needed...

Next installment? Well, you will just have to come back to find out <img src="/images/happy.gif" height="14" width="14" alt="happy.gif">

Thanks for looking in.



Cheers,

John

MensajeTema: Firewall and floor   Sáb 31 Ene 2009, 5:47 pm

More interior work. This time the firewall that separates the crew compartment from the engine. The gray part is the front wheel hub from a Tamiya Me 262. I think it came with 2 so you had the option of which to use. I originally planned to kit bash the major interior parts, but that rapidly proved to be wishful thinking. I have made use of scrounged bits where possible, but as you will see as we progress it has not happened that often.

I got in a hurry to take these pictures and forgot that I had not added the strip the fixes the gap at the bottom of the firewall... It is in place now, but I'm lazy, so no new pics...







Also visible here are the brackets that secure the ammo boxes to the floor. Everything is a little loose at the moment so there are a few gaps. those will be adjusted out once everything is permanent.

Thanks for looking,

John

MensajeTema: Interior Goodies   Sáb 31 Ene 2009, 5:58 pm

Greetings,

This was the part that killed the kit-bashed/ simple scratch build interior plan. The Transmission. Initially, I Misunderstood some of the photos/ captions in one of my reference books. This caused me to think that the entire Transmission was covered with a sort of box like structure. This cover was simply missing. A drawing in another book seemed to confirm my (erroneous) thoughts on this. It turns out that there is a missing cover, but it is an inspection plate on top of the Transmission... So no simple box with levers sticking out of it. By the time I had realized my mistake, it was too late.

Here it is. Completely scratch built. The larger unit is the 1/35 Tristar Marder III H kit part. I used this for measurements, which were scaled down with my trusty calculator.



The lower firewall. This and the main firewall were separated and attached to the lower and upper hulls in such a way as to help align the separate interior parts. and hopefully contribute to the illusion that all of this was installed together in the factory.

[IMG]http://i73.photobucket.com/albums/i202/ledmirage/Marder%20Mania%20Build/MIII_int_6.jpg[/IMG

Almost all of this upper panel is invisible now that it is installed. That does not really bother me, and I have the pictures Smile



Drive shaft.

[IMG]http://i73.photobucket.com/albums/i202/ledmirage/Marder%20Mania%20Build/MIII_int_7.jpg[/IMG

Not sure what these are. Maybe power supplies for the radios, there will be some wiring to support that idea, and add a little "clutter".



And all of it in place, plus some bolts added along the edges.









Back to the bench now. Apologies, Lu, apologies, but I am going to drag this interior stuff out a little longer
Thanks for looking.

cheers,

John

MensajeTema: Marder   Lun 02 Mar 2009, 7:55 pm

Greetings friends. cheers

More work done on the Marder. It's been slow going lately, but some progress has happened. Here the gun shields or armor are now in place. There is still a little more work here to be done, but this is basically ready for paint.






Okay back to the interior. These are the tracks or rails for the seat. It appears that the seats were adjustable just like in a car. They would slide on these.




The seat frames and bases. I still need to sculpt the back pads for these.




I made a mold of the kit seat. Then I shaved a little off the sides as the driver/radio op seats are narrower and have flat sides. They are also slightly asymmetrical. I need to sculpt pads for these too...




The radios, and the frame/mount brackets for them. I cheated a little here. :ale: It is actually one radio, cause the detail was better on this one then the separate smaller ones...



And here it all is. this is just a rough, quick placement for the photos. I will line it all up properly when it is time to make it permanent!





MG cover. My Marder is being matched to a photo, showing it at rest and not combat ready, hence the covered weapons. This is something new to me and inspired a little by our friend Lu. So there will be a base and figures...





Thanks for looking ala

cheers,
John
