MPV S&C Video Unit by 3DR
« on: February 06, 2018, 10:54:49 am »
Just dug this model out, originally offered on this site as a Shapeways print and mechanization kit.  I have been slowly trying (over a year!) to get the yellow stable and as the roof is going grey i'm now happy with the sides.

I'm using a Zimo sound chip and it is now functional with the base coats of yellow and black dry and hard.



Now to research the details and add transfers.

V Nice.  What did you use for the yellow?

Cheers Jon  :)

As I am painting the MPV I am going to paint my Harsco Grinder at the same time so I have put the hardware and sound chip in tonight.

Quick update with the block color done.  The surfaces are currently gloss to help the transfers when they go on.

Almost done.  Needs some fine detail inked and painted.  With the windows in I reassembled it tonight and ran this test.
