7TP twin turret with snow-plow - Mirage - 1/35 - case report

         This is the building of this interesting and rare model: the 7TP twin turret, by Mirage. I'll add a snow plow blade constructed from drawings and profiles I found in the literature. There are no known photos (yet. ..) about this version, but the literature states its existence ...
The kit:
...and the profile:
7TP snow-plow


        The kit is very primitive and raw, but nothing that a little work does not resolve ....
The slits of the turrets are closed...
Surgery in progress...
Some scratch...
        For building of the blade, I reworked the drawing of book, just extrapolating that to a vision in 3 planes; Done this scheme, print in scale 1/35 and these profiles served as a model for the scratch of my blade ...

Elevator device done...
       And the girl, ready for paint job:




      Well, painting time...First of all, primer to promote best adherence in the kit. Automotive enamels after the primer, starting with sand-yellow. The camo stripes was made with green and brown. After the paint dries, a fine layer of Future, to prevent the silvering in the decals.
