    In between building my Viper, I came accros trymodels scout car. You can download it here http://www.zealot.com/forum/downloads.php?do=file&id=1630 This scout car is known by other names and in different variations. The dingo is the name it is best known as but it is also known as the Bison and the Lynx. The basic shape is there but as usual, I will try to make it more detail within my capabilities. The first stage of the build, will be the wheels. This procedure can be used for other vehicle builds to include warhammer. Thanks for the model Trymodel and I hope to do it justice.:thumb:

    Here is the next batch of photo updates. I did the wheels first, because they are time intensive. I make my wheels different from the known techniques. The next posting will be on the chassis, suspension and axle arrangements. Enjoy and see you all soon.:thumb:

    With the wheels done, it is time to go to the chassis and the body of the Dingo. The first photo is a teaser as to where I am at the moment. The interior is coming out better than anticipated. Working with the BSG Viper has helped in the detailing of this small vehicle.

    Awesome, I'm really excited. Interior, wheels, chassis .... exquisite detail. The original model is simple. What I see here, tells me, that I still have a lot to learn. Beautiful work, thank you

    It's a collaborative effort. It's what makes this forum special. The sharing, instruction, and friendship. :)

    It is simple but effective and cries for more. The base was done, I only worked from there.


    Thank you for your contribution. Simple is sometimes better, because it encourages the brain cells to think, "what if". You started the road and I am just making the road signs and traffic patterns.

    Always build with the expectation that some one can learn from your mistakes as well as your achievements.



    So here is the next batch on the chassis and axles. The next section, will be on the cab construction. That will be a bit tricky in that the cab is not done in a forward seating arrangement but slightly canted. Enjoy and see you all next posting.:thumb:

    I wonder what would you do if you get one of the models I (still) intend to release. Gee, I think I would have to hide myself in my little corner of shame... Naaahhh... You would make it look so cool, that I would actually feel proud of giving you something to start with... :mrgreen:

    Keep in touch and I will see what I can do. Keep in mind that I may not get to it right away, I still have a couple of unfinished threads to work on, especially the Viper build.

    Continuing with this small project. The main unit is finished, now the only things left, are the extra stuff and details. The last photo commentary, is not meant as derogatory. A fag, is an English term for a cigarette. As you can see, here is where the scratch building really begins past the wheels and axle system. Enjoy and see you all soon with more updates.

    devilThat's kind of dangerous because whatever your disposition, they could always shoot back at you, if you're going to try and smoke someone, better get them the first shot.:boom: Still don't see how that would cause a problem, except with the return fire.:joust1: :eek:. Those tanks are probably lined with 1" thick rubber bullet shielding, and I am almost positive these are all diesel, which solves many problems.idea1

    Dingo/Bison

    The M-113 are a multifuel engine now but in the early days of the Indochina war, they had gas engines and the fuel cell was right in the back by the exit ramp/door. The enemy knew where the fuel cell was and would aim for that part of the APC. Other than roadside IED's, This probably led to many GI's to ride topside. Besides, with all the gear on board, it was very cramp and hard to exit the vehicle. If the fuel cell ignited, the soldiers would have to face a wall of flames to exit the ramp. The APC's were bullet attractors, which led me to join small unit operations like recon teams.


    In continuation with the Dingo, Here again is a teaser photo as to where I am at the moment. As you can see, I hand painted the vehicle a NATO green and added the unit identifications for an SAS, Rhodesian Army scout vehicle.

    Dingo/Bison

    Still working on the little fella, The model that Trymodel has design, seems to be the Mark-I, This one is the same but with enhanced add on's to make it more compatible with the Mark-II or later. One of the biggest changes to the models, is to the rear engine radiator louver shields in the back. Here is the section of the build where the coloring changes. As with my ALIENS APC, I gave the body a base coat of black, and then colored the overall vehicle an olive drab. The steering column was a bit tricky but by using the paper clip wire, I was able to bend and form it to the right angles. Enjoy and see you all next posting.:thumb:

    You know, I think I'll have to stop posting at your threads, because I'm running out of words to express how mesmerized I am by your magnificent work. Besides, the way you post in your threads makes them so educational, that learning your techniques is a pleasure that's only matched by the one I have when reading and seeing your results.
    UHU02 is an undisputed master of design, but you're the king of improvement and add-ons! Absolutely fantastic!

    The more you tell me, the less I now about you. As long as you don't tell me a "Dingo ate my baby!", we'll be fine! Beautiful job man, like always, another ones comes to life! :)

    To see the vast array of techniques employed in building this Dingo is a true pleasure.
    The vehicle's descendant, the Ferret, was even more crowded in the interior, but every bit as useful.

    Yes, the Dingo did have three pedals on the floor, but some of the later ones also had (iIrc) a pre-selector gearbox, subsequently deleted and those vehicles returned to standard manual transmission, because the pre-selector was not sufficiently rapid in changing ratios.
    The crewspace and detailing in the vehicle interior simply amazes me. :)

    I am particularly impressed with the wheel construction you employed, and the methods by which the axles were placed and detailed.

    This build is very enjoyable to watch and follow. I look forward to seeing the model evolve.

    Kind and Respectful Regards, Uyraell.

    Thanks for the comments Rogerio. It is just my nature to look at things and envision them in my mind. The model is already modified in my mind and I just follow my those building steps. Now if only I could have the skills of UHU and put those ideas to a working plan and process.

    Thanks Zathros and welcome back after your short sabbatical.

    Thank you Uyraell, I did accumulaate a stor of reference material on this little fella and there are so many small details that I could not replicate in paper but with the meager details that I could come up with, I am pleased as to the final outcome of the Dingo.


    Here are some more photo updates on the build. The model is almost finished so all I have to do now is edit the photos. I wish that my graphics program had a spell checker. Sometimes I go over my threads and cringe at some of my misspelled words. Enjoy and see you all soon with more updates.

    I watched with bated breath the construction of this model. In the dream, I would not think that is possible from a simple model to do. Especially when the size of 1/35 (the length is 9 cm !!!). Masterpiece, very inspiring, beautiful work. Thanks :thumb:

    Dingo/Bison/Lynx

    There are a lot of smaller details, that I had to do without, and when there is a wealth of reference material out there, it sure helps in the construction. Thanks for the model, too bad that I am not that good in making the printed details.

    The Dingo/Lynx/Bison, depending what country of origin, is finished, I have to do the editing and post photos from here on. Be patient and the first photo is of the finished model. Stick around until I get to that point in the future. Enjoy and see you all soon with more photo updates.:thumb:
