Maddog Manufacturing 2020 Production

Hello all and welcome to the Grand Re-opening of Maddog Manufacturing in 2020. I had a pretty good end of year which has set me up to make even more progress this year. So come on in and enjoy the tours!

I'll start with a reminder of what I finished the last year with still on the bench:

Image

Today I managed to find some time so I sat down to get some of these moving. This is the results, starting with my aircraft.

The little Russian glider was still mocking me so I re-sanded down the seam I'd filled again for the fourth time. It still wasn't as smooth as I wanted but I'm tired of dealing with it. I shot another coat of green on this bird:

Image

Later when it was dry, I went back and shot the second camouflage color on it. I free-handed this paint work with my Sotar 20/20 airbrush:

Image

Moving on, I also decided to shoot the final green color on my Israeli Sufa since it was already masked and ready for it:

Image

After that, I completed the masking so I could shoot the underside of this jet:

Image

After shooting the grey, I forgot to take a pic before I masked off the nose and shot the gunship grey on it. So, here's the underside, with the nose still masked off and painted:

Image

After all of that was done and dry, I removed all the tape and Silly Putty. I'm gonna need to do some touch ups but I'm happy with where this is now:

Image

That's all I got done with my aircraft for now. Let's look at the progress I made on my armor and vehicles.




Since I had already masked my BMP-3 Early with Silly Putty when I masked the Sufa, I shot the next color on:

Image

After that dried, I masked that second color and then shot the third one on:

Image

After that was dry enough, I removed everything to see how it looked. I'm happy; there's not too much to touch up on this:

Image

Image

Since the T-15 Armata was also masked; I shot the second color on that one too:

Image

Later it got covered and the third color shot on:

Image

And once again, when it was dry, I removed everything to find only a tiny amount of touch up needed. This looks pretty awesome in this scheme:

Image

Image

Now on to my big trucks. First off, the AA-60 fire tender still had issues with the white on the sides so I re-shot it. That is drying now; no need to take pics again. Meanwhile, I decided to modulate the color on the big trucks that will be all one solid color. First was the MAZ tank transporter:

Image

Next was the KZKT Iskandar:

Image

Then I shot the KZKT Heavy Cargo Truck:

Image

And finally, the MAZ Heavy Cargo Truck:

Image

The last two models had some measure of camouflage on them, only two colors each. First off the Bereg Coastal Defense Gun got it's second tan color. I free-handed this camouflage on this and the Baikal Command Truck still with my Sotar 20/20 airbrush since it would have taken too much tape and Silly Putty to mask off all that green. I should have shot the tan first, then masked that and shot the green. Oh well, I did it in reverse instead and here's how the Bereg looks:

Image

Image

And finally I camouflaged the Baikal; but it only needed the second tan color on the command cabin so I modulated the drivers cabin:

Image

Image



And that is all I managed to get done on this; the first building day of the new year. Thanks all for looking in, as always; comments are welcome.

Man, the guys from Modelcollect should send you an employee of the moth badge or something like that.
Outstanding!

Wow, what incredibly motivating and inspiring replies guys! :bow:

Clint, Lyle, Blacksheep, thanks guys! I'm liking those trucks more and more as I get them closer to the finish line.

Thanks Carlos! Hopefully I'll be able to keep it rolling far more than last year.

Thanks Kevin and Steve!

Mostrich, thanks! I am trying to finish as many of Modelcollect's modern armor kits as I can. I have already built about half of ACE's lineup and all of the ancient ESCI line. I want to have the same record with Modelcollect.

Thanks Stuart! Most appreciated my friend!
