1/72 K-Wagen card model
Permalink   


I recently built Bryan Tan's K-Wagen, and thought I'd share a few photos of the completed model. If a card model file isn't locked, I always like to perform a little Photoshop work to individualize the finished product, and this one was no exception. In this case, what you see is a full re-texturing of the original kit. Assembly presented no difficulties, although it might present challenges for an inexperienced card modeller: The skins have no glue tabs, so the modeler must decide where to place them for ease of assembly. There is no support structure, so either an internal egg crate must be scratch built, or the larger panels need to be laminated to beefy cardboard. I believe there are only a couple of factory construction photos of the prototype tanks, so I can't vouch for the absolute accuracy of the model. There's no mistaking what it's supposed to be, though.

Nice build! Love the name you gave it! Hammer of the Gods...

In combat it probably would have got stuck in the first shell hole it encountered, and then attracting the attention of every artillery piece within a 5 mile radius...

Thanks for your kind words, fellas. Credit for the name belongs to the designer, Bryan Tan. Mjolnir, (the proper name of Thor's hammer) is certainly appropriate.
