  2. That's a brilliant idea!
  3. Just a few shots without the canopy and at that time did not have the hood clamps made. [/URL] [/URL] [/URL] [/URL] Regards Richard
  4. Yesterday
  5. Well, as I said, it's something I have wondered about. It does seem logical, but I don't recall seeing it being done, ever; If anyone can pull it off though, it's you Stix; You are the master of dry brushing in my humble opinion! If you do experiment, even if only on a small 'spare' piece of armour, a 'scrapped' AFV, etc, please do exhibit it on BM, because I would love to see how it turns out. I'm thinking that a wash over the 'multi-colour' dry brushing might help to bring everything together? Rearguards, Badder
  6. It really only worked under the Base coat, not so much under the other 2 colours.....
  7. Much better now, thanks for asking!
  8. Very nicely done. There's me thinking 1/35 is getting a bit difficult to see... :0 matt
  9. Link doesn't work, and you've put it in Armour.
  10. Looks great !
  11. The PE gun shield is a huge improvement on the bog standard plastic one Rob, can't wait to see it painted.
  12. It's a great build Etienne and excuse my getting hot, bothered and excited by Friul tracks, I promise to only pull the boxes of tracks out and fondle them when I am all alone
  13. Lovely builds, Steve ! This SAS Jeep is cool
  14. All time spent modelling is well spent and relaxing, in the great scheme of things modeller's wives prefer more constructive paintwork like maintenance.....................................................

  17. Great news! I am glad you and Mrs. W are well and I will check out your (what is bound to be a stunning) model later. Hope you have a great day too. Kind regards, Stix
  18. Stunning pics to go with a stunning model! Roger
  19. Very nice, although I would suggest for realism not obstructing the viewing ports for driver and machine gun operator and the sights for the main gun...
  20. Thinking of building the Roden m37 3/4 tonne truck (Vietnam) next... Anyone got any good references for something different (gun truck for example). I have raided Google but anything else greatly appreciated. Any 1/35 50cal machine guns in any after market sets.for example?
  21. Thanks Julien. A sort of ugly duckling to a swan! John.
  22. not much interior detail, but as long as you don´t want to display the doors open... size relation
  23. Hi Andrew, I glued the 2 ply tissue paper with student glue, then I glue another layer of tissue paper for all the edges to strengthen it more. When cure just spray some primer or flat coat to protect it. Straps make from masking tape, buckle and rings made from flattened thin wire. Here is the the only in progress photo for the tarpaulin.
  24. Last week

  28. Hi, I am building Type 89, and would like to do it in the Navy version (SNLF) sirca early 30s. The instruction sheet suggests grey (XF75 by Tamiya). Possibly makes sense. But here, it is suggested that it was painted overall khaki which also makes perfect sense. Now, which way should I go? Also the IJN emblem on the frontal glass is seems to have been painted. Was it white?
