Hello,

The Caterpillar D6K dozer in 1/35 by MMK Models - a multimedia kit in very good quality, with 3 sheets photo etched parts, decals and clear foil for the windows ...


First starting with the chassis ....










... and the interior ...






... the ripper ... (pipes follow later)






The dozer blade with all the additional parts - some pipework still missing ...







So far for the moment ...

Cheers
Micha

Hello,

last update of the dozer before the primering. The cap finished with lot of great etched parts which add lot of details.

Some wire, etched parts etc. added and ready for the paint job now.

Hello,

black primer over everything .... then iron color and rusty color sprayed ... then some chipping.

The main color is mixed of several colors of Lifecolor and sprayed next, then some more chipping.

NOw all the details were painted with a brush .... then some filter follow ...

Hello,

the great "track wash" was added on the whole body parts (only outside) next, to give the yellow color the correct shape. Then clear coat fixed it, before the decals were added and some displays at the interior (colored etched parts from the kit).
All the great decals were included, also the Caterpillar markings (no idea if they have the licence for it)

The tracks were single pieces, holes have to be drilled and wire was used to mount thte tracks... in theory.... it was a horror job ... the tracks were not all accurate ... so the fitting was terrible.
Finally I have glued it all in place and fixed the whole, unpainted tracks to the dozer .... then masked all around ... and sprayed the tracks after the mounting ... this was the only option.
First black, then rusty red, then silver, chipping, yellow, chipping. Then once again a rusty red wash
































Now follow the windows, some further details, then assembling of the whole ... then dust and dirt

Cheers
Micha
