So the RX-78 built was halt due to the unfriendly weather here in my town 😦 Which means I should do something that could be done indoor. Lucky to have Morser Karl that could keep me busy for a while.
as you can see in the picture above is the ammo for Morser Karl compared next to a German Soldier….some people called Morser Karl as The Hammer of God, now I can see the reason why.
I always start building a tank from the lower hull. Lower hull contains the lower body, wheels, and tracks.
Wheels attached to the body 😀 After this, I move on to the track. There are basically three types of track in military scale modeling. The vinyl track is just like rubber (simple but not realistic). Individual Track which needs to be glued piece by piece (frustrating but looks real). And PE tracks made of steel (very hard to assemble, but it really resemble the real thing and workable too). Morser Karl use the individual track:
Morser Karl has an ammo loader that needs to be operated manually by hands. It is actually a tools to push the big ass ammo into the canon 😀
Now moving on to the upper hull. Upper hull is the place where Morser’s crew are passing by. Since Morser is a very long range artillery, it doesn’t really need a roof to protect it’s crew. So they can always work while inhaling fresh air 😀
It needs a big gun to fire big bullets. That’s why Morser’s cannon one of the biggest I’ve seen 😀 This is the where the cannon is placed:
This is how the Morser looks after the assembly:
That’s all for the first WIP of Morser Karl 😀
I’ve been gathering some materials for a new tutorial as well as continuing on the RX-78 (finally got some sunshine and some time :D) so these two most likely gonna appear soon 😀
Ow, and this is a picture of what happened when I’m gone to the bathroom for a while…
