You are making me want to build one for myself!
1/14 scale? Fabulous!

But why this gray colour?
Your build is so amazingly clean and precise.
But I'm not thrilled about the colour and texture banding.
Is that an effect you have applied?

The actual Tumbler was matte black or something very similar.
Its rough looking, a lot of the paint surface looks worn. I've seen it.
But it was definitely black or close to black.

And there were no bright metal the gas caps or actuators.
They were more like an anodized copper or a bronze if i remember correctly.

Regardless, this will be an amazing model when its done.

To be honest every piece that I see I have no idea how or where it is installed, I do not know any technical details or all that, I do not know if the color is black, gray, blue or whatever, I only see an excellent job where I look at it, it's great.

I'm with Dave on this one - great build, but the colouring is wrong.
Remember, " Does it come in black ?"
"It's all in the reflexes."

Thanks, folks.

The color choice is my personal preference. As is the PS filter effects used to obtain the look that I also wanted. Thatís the nice thing about this kit; YOU can print yours on any color of paper you want. As to the gold, itís what I had available.

Continuing with the build...

Pics 93 Ė 96 show both parts, 17-5 & 18-5, attached. 97 Ė 101 show the visor headlights, their under plating and the rear flaps, above 17-5 & 18-5, installed.

2 mods here: The under plating and the rear flaps were re-drawn/re-shaped. I felt that the former was too thick and the latter the wrong shape. Also, I made the flaps double-sided, to fold and glue back on themselves, and then embossed the perimeter edges against their own template to create the folded edge.

Now on to the roof. -J
