My first "real" critter

For discussion of the issues faced when building a model or layout - how to replicate wood, what glues to use, exactly how much weathering can a Gnat take, a good source of detailing accessories - you get the picture, I'm sure.

My first "real" critter

Postby Matthi205 » Tue Oct 05, 2010 4:05 pm

Hello fellow Gnutterboxers,
after some inspiration from Dieselwater I decided to do another critter,realising that the chassis from my older one was nearly junk...
It's in the "body-done-but-it needs-Detail" stage now and it is unpowered,made from some wagon Parts and a box for superglue.
So,look for yourself(images are VERY bad quality):

Sorry, M., but your images are really difficult to make out.
Can you try to re-post some different pictures?
