    Hello !
    I've decided to build a BA-64 (Brone Avtomobil 64) . My model is from allfrompaper.narod.ru a free but a nice model. I know that there is one from Modelik but I don't have it.
    Anyway I've change the camo and now you can say it is original. I don't know if it was the same in reality but I like it. The ideea is that my BA-64 should be a captured version.

    That paint job looks great, Dragos!
    I too am working on a Ba 64 and a Ba 32, in order to curb my appetite for the new Modeliks!:roll:

    Did you have to change the file type along the way and if so, how?
    Also, what program did you use to color it?

    I know these questions get asked a lot but everyone has their own way of doing things.
    You may have a better working method than someone else has.

    Thanks for the link charliec.
    Amazyah asked me how did I change the camo well it is very very simple: if you are using Windows you can find in Accesories a little program named Paint. You open the file in Paint after you have convert it in a .jpeg file. I use to convert Adobe Photoshop 7.0 . I think it is easyer using Paint vs. Photoshop

    Thanks, Dragos.
    We both do it the same way, except that I use a program called paint.net
    It is pretty much the same thing, though.

    I built that model, the flat olive one. Kinda tricky figuring out how to peice together the hull, but not too hard. What I found hard was the turret. I built it on stock that was too thick.

    I start the work at the turret, paperwarior warned me that it is a little hard. My model is printed on a A4 120 gpm sheet , we will see....

    the turret....

    Ok here is the situation of the turret, paperwarior was right it is very difficult to built it because the card is too thick.

    I have this file also Dragos and hope to build it one day soon. Is it that the part is just very small, or is it that the design doesn't take into account the thickness of the paper resulting in a poor fit?

    I think the design doesn't take into account the thickness. If it were printed and built on regular paper, then reinforced, it'd be a bit easier.

    Turret build........

    Your are all quite right about the difficulty with this assembly. I took three attempts before I was happy. I ended up removing ALL tabs and building the base and inner surfaces first. Then I cut all the outer sections apart and glued them to the inner assembly one at a time. You may have to do a little careful trimming but in the end it comes out pretty good. You could probably print it on regular letter paper as there is no mass to this assembly. If you plan ahead, you can make the turret revolve. I know, too much time on my hands. :) With all the extra detail parts, this is a neat model. I am not normally an armour person, but these are so unusual that it makes a good addition to my model shelves. Repaint looks very good. Have fun!
    Later,
    Fred Z.

    I think that the turret is too small for the thickness of the card. Anyway I'm pleased with the result.
