These images are of the 1:35 scale V103 RE-4 Reichenberg produced by Bronco Models.  The kit was built out of the box over a span of about 15 hours spread out over 10 days.  A full, four-part build log for this kit can be found here, here, here, and here.

Materials used included:
Tamiya acrylic paint
Vallejo Model Air acrylic paint
Testor’s Dullcote
Pledge “Future”
Artist Oil Paints
Generic Hairspray
100% Acetone Nail Polish Remover
MicroScale Industries Micro-Set and Micro-Sol

Tamiya Extra-Thin Cement
Gator’s Grip Glue
15-second CA “Superglue”
Squadron White Putty

Iwata HPC-Plus Gravity-Fed Airbrush
X-Acto brand blades
X-Acto “third hand” clamp with magnifier
Tamiya Masking Tape

None of the manufacturers named have provided me with any sort of incentive to list them.  I simply enjoy using their products.

Thank you for coming along with me on this build.  I hope that you’ve enjoyed it.  I’m about to get started on a new kit, this time a Trumpeter 1:700 USS Lexington CV-2 (You can find an unboxing video of the kit here), so new posts should feature a build log update of that project from time to time.  I’ll also be posting more tips and tricks, as well as unboxing and product reviews from various models in my que.  Of course, don’t forget that I’ll be throwing the random history lesson in here as well.

Take care, and happy modeling.
