Sorry I've not been here more, work and family...you know the drill...

Anyhoo, I've just completed building a IG Medusa Siege Gun for an IPMS Regional contest. All papercard - total cost: maybe $3 U.S. About a month of building on my free moments.

I'll be painting and building a diorama for it (in less than 2 weeks - Yikes!:shok:).

Hope you like it.

Nice work man!! I hope you've logged alot of photos for the contest! I do historical armour and I know the drill with IPMS and the North East scene! One comment I'd hit you on if I were a judges is the gun position with the blast shield. The shield on MY left is rubbing the gun and there is a much bigger gap on the right hand side! Just watch that brother, they might ding ya on it! Great work though!!!

The original plans came from a Russian 40ker that goes by the handle of Patoroch. I must admit to adding some detail to the model (like rivets and tank tread links). I am priming with sandable auto body primer, but am using a new type as the place I usually get my primer from changed companies....we'll see how it goes (maybe it will all go to mush...:()

The shield was not glued in at the time of photography and the gun is not either....so I can paint it better.

look here for links:

Thanks for all the compliments! Now an update, I have it colored and am starting to weather it. It was painted with sand-able auto body primer, and then painted with a mixture of acrylics including GW paints. No warping and it is somewhat water proof on the surface.

pretty nifty...i'm thoroughly impressed! how did you do those treads? I've been struggling with those.
I printed out the treads twice. The first I left as a strip, then I cut a verrrry thin piece of cardstock to use for the link pins. I cut and glued them into position on the first strip. I then cut out the individual links on the second track and glued them down over the link pins on the first track. Finally, I cut out the squares and glued them down to the top of the links.
