1/25 Henschel Bn2t Riesa, Modelik

Hi all. It has been a while since I have done any modelling, so to break the drought I thought I would try something different. It is a Henschel Bn2t Riesa by Modelik in 1/25 scale.
It is a very nice kit. The fit has been excellent. I have been using the laser cut set for the wheels and most of the drivetrain parts. It is not comprehensive. It would have been nice if it had the chassis parts laser cut. Also there was only half the number of nuts required. But never mind. I have painted the whole model. The pipes are made from piano wire, brass wire, brass tube and solder. I also used bamboo BBQ skewers for some of the rods.
The base and tracks are made from balsa.
I am having a great time making this model.

The rivets are drops of PVA glue

The red paint is Vajello flat red and the black is Lifecolor flat black. Both have taken to the cardboard and paper very nicely.
I buffed the flat read with a tissue and I did some dry brushing with dark grey.

There is still a bit to go, mostly in the cabin. The kit comes with two wagons, but I don't think I will make them.

I'm having trouble adding pictures now. The picture above shows the lamp. I used silver foil inside with a clear plastic rod for the filament. The plastic came from the canopy sprue of the new Airfix spitfire
