Ford Tf-c

As far as I came up the idea about wheels with spokes looking exactly at this armoured car, I think, I had to build such model.

Unfortunately, I did not find enough documentation: almost all photos I found had not very good quality and pictures contained contradictory information. So, this model is a mix of various pictures, photos and ideas. Very good page with information about this AC is here: Ford FT-B (Tf-c) Polish armoured car
And there I found a picture with camouflage, but it contains mistake and copying of it is impossible. As a result, the model has a camouflage with my imagination.

So, here is a prototype:


And the model. Despite of the fact that the scale is 1/35, the model is very small:




This time I tried to make black bottom. Exhaust pipe is flat, but it is almost invisible.

Very nice work! Did you have any white edges after the build? If so, you did a very good job covering them. What technique did you use if so?

You have definitely captured the appearance of this early armored car.

Excellent work. That is a great looking example of an early armored car.

Thank you!
What about edges - I just paint them with gel ink pens.
