Basically on and off over the previous two evenings I extended the front of the hull and built the Drivers Cab.
For a bit of difference and to bring some non linear shapes into the vehicle I made the Drivers Cab a semi circular bulge, he has a nice panoramic view.
So this evening the plan was to start working on the outer track unit panels, filling out the gap, adding road wheels etc all in preparation for the new tracks to arrive.
First thing I thought of was to add the forward drive wheels.
And then I realised the slight error I had made, namely I had covered up the area where the damn things fit.
So I had to carve out the two areas and then plate and detail everything back up again.
Another scale shot, with the track outer panels blu tac'd on and the front extension.
Going to take two or three days off the Karrier now, before getting back to it this weekend.
(copy and past job from the last post again.)
I have decided to run a competition revolving around the Karrier.
In the past while doing conversions people found it amusing if I kept a track record of the number of rivets I added, so I thought for this huge build I would do the same.
So the competition is this, you have a guess on the number of rivets I eventually add to the karrier with the person who is closest at the finish getting a Gun Emplacement kit as a prize.
However, to take part you will have to Follow this blog and post up your guess as a comment to this or post. This is your last chance to put up your guess. Once the next Karrier post is done that'll be it...
The running total will start in the next Karrier update.
