Schneider CA Hobby Boss
Permalink   


 Hi all

Just started to work on this Hobby Boss Schneider CA

I decided to detail the tank's belly (the kit it's pretty...basic) and to update the running gear structure.

In 2018 I visited the Musée des Blindés at Saumur and took some photos of their Schneider.

Moreover, Blast Models produces an update set for the Schneider and it's very useful as a guide.

Of course more to come 😊

Glad to see you are posting a build on this kit. I have this one in the stash to start. The tracks from what I understand can be a real hassle. There is an upgrade set on ebay from the Chino Company I believe that can be purchased. I will be getting this set if the kits tracks are an issue for me, so I wanted to give you a heads up if they are an issue for you. I will be following your build here. Thanks for taking the time to photograph and post your work.

Hallo Rowich 

Thanks a lot. You have fun with this kit if you like to make some minor and major surgery here and there😅.I'm an old modeler, and I like it☺️. However, I think the real fun will be to paint and weather it🤞🏻

Brentprice thank you for following 😊

You're right, tracks aren't top quality (understatement)

I used the kit ones, though.

You just need some patience...and heavy weathering😅

Hi all

Here are pics of the finished Hobby Boss Schneider CA. I noticed that the axles of the sprocket wheels were a bit on the little side, hence I enlarged them and, consequently, the pieces related to them. You can see from the pics what kind of surgery I did on the model☺️

The thread that you see coming out from the armor plate on the right side operates the panneau d'appel and will be hidden, of course.

Next step primer, than the fun begins😊IMG_20230414_193051.jpgIMG_20230414_193205.jpgIMG_20230414_192148.jpgIMG_20230414_192706.jpgIMG_20230414_192524.jpgIMG_20230414_192548.jpgIMG_20230414_192836.jpgIMG_20230414_192932.jpg

Looking good. I will be waiting to see what you do with painting and weathering. Is this going pnto a base a diorama or just displayed on it own?

Hi brentprice... Thank you. The idea is to display it in a diorama, while trying to cross a trench. Let's see... But first of all want to have fun with the camo😊

I have a question about your build. I see there is a string coming from the armor plate to one of the suspension springs. My question is, what is the string for?

Oh, that is just the thread operating the panneau d'appel.

It's not running to the spring, it's just a visual effect.

You can remove the armor plate, and the thread will be inside the tank in the finished model

Thanks for the link, that explained a lot. I had forgotten about the call signs used on tanks as I had read about them accidentally a few years ago.

Hi mates

Here are two pics  of the camo very first step.

I know, it's not so sexy at the moment 🙄

I also did a barbed wire barricade for my next WW1 diorama...

Here are pics of the base for the Schneider.

It will fall into the trench😦IMG_20230625_201524.jpgIMG_20230625_201416.jpgIMG_20230625_201306.jpgIMG_20230625_200949.jpgIMG_20230625_201213.jpgIMG_20230625_201100.jpgIMG_20230625_200824.jpg

The tank tried to get over the trench, or maybe it fell in it (because of a mechanical failure, or driver's fault...) and has just hit the opposite wall

Hmm, sometimes I get the impression that only a few are still holding the fort here!?!confuse

It’s a pity that you are receiving hardly any feedback on your wonderful work here. Although I don’t know anything on French camo I note with pleasure that your paintwork looks like painted with the brush – exactly what they did on the original vehicle. A lot of modelers falsely use the paintbrush.

But what hit me first was your trench section – awesome work!!!

Thank you Peter and Ned 😊

You're right, I actually used the airbrush for the base colour, then just brush.

And was inspired by the reconstruction of trenches at the Passchaendele Museum (visited it a while ago, in 2014)
