Not much time recently, progress is quite slow but it's almost the end.
Today I finished my work on the headlights. Glass will be attached after painting. At first I have to paint those headlights chrome inside.

Looks like it's the last WIP. And yes, it is the last WIP update.
Dodge WC6 is completed, has all parts except the windshield wipers(they'll be the final parts to attach). Also I've decided to not make the canvas top. Today I spent some time on examining how it looks on a real vehicle and now I'm sure it would be very, very difficult to make that tarpaulin from paper or fabric in 1/25 scale.
The last stage of this project is painting. Then will be the final...

Premiere on December 7th.

USN Dodge WC6 - Pearl Harbor 1941

Here it is. After three months, USN Dodge WC6 has been finished. And today on December 7th, on 77th Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day, it has its premiere. I'm very happy that I was able to complete it before that day.

I put a lot of work into this project. WC6 was the most difficult model I've ever done in paper/cardboard. No blueprints, very few sources, unclear markings and even unknown specifications(lenght, width, height) of WC6 variant. I had to work with pictures and specifications of the other version.
Thankfully I solved all these problems.

Model is recreated according to Tora! Tora! Tora! movie and photos of the other USN vehicles.

Scale 1/25

Absolutely splendid creation Kacper. Amazing skill and persistence mate. And I'm so glad you did a USN version too!
