Dozer and Smigg

‘EADBANGER PAINTING CONTEST – 3rd PLACE LARGE/VEHICLE CATEGORY

COMPETITION GUIDELINES

This project was originally intended for a fun paint off challenge between myself and a very good friend and owner of The Warren Hobby Shop in Somerset West. We had both seemed to get our copies of the Dozer & Smigg model at roughly the same time and with our competitive spirit, we decided to create a paint off.

Early on during the project the Facebook group; ‘Eadbanger”, launched its annual painting contest. Since the deadline for the contest fell within a few days of the deadline for the paint off, it only seemed logical to create the piece for both challenges. Although in hindsight, Warren and I had agreed to no fancy bases, I could not resist especially since I would be competing internationally with this piece. With that in mind, I decided to challenge myself by trying my hand at NMM (Non-Metallic Metal), something I had only previously attempted once before. Painting this piece was a challenge as it required numerous sub-assemblies, in order to access hard to reach places. This project pushed my limits along with my patience but the ultimate reward was completion within both deadlines. A challenging yet hugely rewarding project.

Dozer & Smigg achieved 3rd place in the LARGE/VEHICLE category.
