Here is my 1/35 Type Odin tank, kitbashed from a Tamiya Type 90. Built with bits bin and scratch build parts/details. i added in an assortment of 2 Photo etched sets(lion's roar and Eduard), 2 resin stowage sets (Verlinden) and set of resin tank figurines(Verlinden).painted with enamels, weathered with art acrylics and MIG pigments . mud was a pigment/dirt acrylic resin mixture(MIG) all hand painted with the exception of primer,flat black/white and top coats(spray cans) this tank took me around 5 weeks and is my most detailed tank by far.Lets just say i put ALOT of work in on this one.
Overall I am pretty happy with how this one came out and for the most part i had no major mix ups or mistakes(just the usuall tons of tiny ones)Working on this thing was really fun but in someways quite stressful($$ of project,PE,color, photos,ect) i am not super happy with the mud but it was a new material/mixture so that's something ill hopefully improve on. Could probably use some more pigment dusting and a few touch ups, but ill wait till i get it on a base to mess with that. i am happy i got it together and its done, i have have spent wayyyy to much time on this thing XD up next is a kitbashed Humvee to match the Odin and then a base/diorama for both of them to be featured on.
as always questions,comments and suggestions are welcome.
this build almost kicked my butt. two sets of PE,two sets of resin stowage, resin figures and overall kitbash. it was a tonnage of work but it all was worth it. i am still pretty proud of my self for this one.
yea the main gun was a scratch/kitbashed. really a hodge podge of parts and styrene and wires. plates/main berrel were from MG gundam kits, there is even some 1/24 car parts gun up to make the inner details/wire intakes.
anyways thanks a ton for choosing my work and giving me a heads up! you do great work!
lol yea they had to have some tunes!
i was thinking that and wondered how long it would be till someone said anything lol
lol i could see that or some slayer to pump themselves up XD
yea if you had asked me a few years ago, i would of said i would never learn or care about the photos. now sometimes they are harder than my builds. sometimes coming up with that one good angle can be quite the accomplishment.
thanks once again, glad you enjoyed it and appreciated my detail.
I hadn't realised you'd finished it (dam I'm slow). I'll have to start watching you
That thing looks amazing. Can't wait to see your future projects
thanks man, was a tonnage of work but i am really happy i built it.
yea i went with a coil/Gauss gun design, the cables provide the magnetic charge inside the cannon.
lol sure they do, that was some of their recovered tec XD
yea this was ALOT for me and was pretty challenging. After the $$ of the kit and all the fun stuff to go with it i was really worried i would mess up something. lucky i think i pulled it off and it came out really decent.
yea i sometimes hear that, and i tend to see alot of projects like this done thru renders and such. unfortunately/lucky i dont have any skills in that area and try to recreate some of my ideas with scale models.
there is something about obsessing over tiny bits of plastic that is quite soothing for me.
and thanks again, this is by far my most detailed project and probably took the most work. was really challenging for me and happy i got it done alright. tho i am sure it will not be the last time i make something like this.
Keep up the awesome work!
it is in fact some sort of coil gun, you called it. i had done a bit of resherch into future/teroritcal wepsons tec befor i built this. always been a fan of Gauss type weapons(video games) . it was pretty fun mocking up my what if on the design.
yea you never know, i am sure there are top secrete weapons out there, this could look strangely like a r"real" one!
I am a fan of new weapons as well especially when they rely on sth else then the stuff we use nowadays. Well I just made a quick check and Railgun weapons are different from Gauss guns. Altough they are pretty alike there are some differences. Maybe building a turret based railgun could be your new project? Maybe as defense turret for an outpost in this post-apocalyptic world?
My motto: The bigger the better or more applying in this case the faster the better since this will inflict more damage.
The design looks really good, I envy you for your skills!
maybe, we can only wait and see.
lol but really that's kinda how i felt building it. it was pretty stressful in some parts but by the end i was very very proud. i can see a few things i really improved on and really went all out on detail. its kinda hard to even see all of it from the photos,a friend of mine IRL was pretty dang floored seeing it and say it looks like my best.
you know me i am a stowage addict, only takes a few fully loaded builds to get addicted lol.
Yea you've defiantly improved and I agree with your friend its defiantly your best!!
I need to get more into stowage myself lol
it can be really fun! cant do it every time but some armor is just asking for it!
thanks man, i think its my technical best. i put in everything i know how to do and then some on this thing. think i learned/got better at alot of things in the process of this. at least PE is not soooooo scary to me anymore. anywasy i gotta build a few more things and get this one a base. after all this work, think this might go to a con with me
