    Let's throw some colour on this beastie. I was going for NATO 3 colour, but I decided to base it on that, this after all is a developmental / experimental vehicle so it's only fair it's colour scheme is as well. For those who like the info, it's Humbrol enamels, the green is 116 with a touch of light grey, the brown is 026 with a touch of matt red to make it a little orange, and the grey is 032 described by Humbrol as Panzer grey. All were thinned and painted over an undercoat of light grey using a brush, each colour got 3 coats with the last coat being the lightest. She's sat drying thoroughly before a gloss varnish, some basic decals and then matt coats and dirt. I'm working on a commander who is a modified Mini Art USMC tank figure. Some pics below.

Thanks for looking, get outside and enjoy the weather!
  2. KFS 1:24 Land Rover Series 2A Ambulance

    I've ordered a few bits from KFS in the past 18 months, always excellent service & really helpful on the phone or email. Oh & the Landy looks very smart.
  3. Looks good! Very sharp scheme, do my eyes deceive me or is there some detail there in the cockpit?
  4. Interesting site,worth a look.

    Looks good, thanks for the shout!
  5. Britain`s Biggest Warship

    Good programme, i found some of the information given a little bit insulting but I guess I was watching it with insider knowledge being ex RN. A good honest portrayal about the problems taking a brand new design to sea for the first time. It's funny how a modern day PO Stoker is just like one from 30 years ago! Yes, "guys", ah well. What happened to; "Oi Lofty, get a grip" and "that man there, yes you!"
  6. Jolly Rogers history in 1/72 (31 planes)

    Wow! The Jolly Roger's Tomcat is my favourite version of the aircraft but that Phantom is tasty!
