    RT Dioramas do a set of 10 for €10 https://www.rt-diorama.de/english/to-the-shop/modern-combat-new/ MAiM also do a set for the same price https://www.modernarmies-in-miniatures.de/barrier-container-set-1-1-35_maim-brmodern-armies-in-miniatures-front46_maim35012.html Both based in Germany and post is not too bad. I've used MAiM before and like their stuff. Not used RT but will try them soon

    Just proves the car was smarter than it's owner
  6. Russian AAA

    I got both sets of Meng/AK paints for Modern Russian Armour and I have to say they do spray very nicely. Russian AAA All 4 vehicles have now got their base colour. I'm using the schemes in the Meng Shilka booklet for 3 of them. It may not be 100% accurate but they look good and that's good enough for me. Russian AAA Russian AAA Russian AAA The Tunguska will get an Artic scheme with black and grey stripes Russian AAA I hope to get a good bit of the camo painting done over this weekend
  7. Meng 1/35 Bradley M2/M3 BUSK III

    Nice work. I found those Trumpy decals very brittle and hard to work with....
  8. Russian AAA

    SA-8 AND SA-13 are possible future additions but have you ever seen anything as ugly as that SA-4? 😂 SA-2 Is another I'd like to add sometime. But first to finish these 4. I have a great track record of starting projects, not so good at finishing..... EDIT: Have the SA-9 also in the collection
  9. Russian AAA

    Don't know why I decided on such madness but I'm building 4 modern Russian anti-aircraft systems in parallel. The kits are: Meng Shilka - beautiful kit with workable tracks but clean-up of the spruce attachments on each link has to be exact for them to connect. Trumpeter SAM-6 - simple kit, nice missiles. Link&length tracks though. Not a fan of them from when I build one years ago. Will replace these. Panda Tunguska - horrible kit. POOR fit of parts and really overdone with tiny bits. Non workable individual link tracks. Might replace these too Panda TOR - such an improvement over the Tunguska. Very detailed radar that went together very well. Also has individual workable tracks Soviet AAA Soviet AAA Currently on the process of priming them all. Each will get a different colour scheme just undecided on which ones yet....
  10. Air Defence Stryker

    Finally finished the Stryker ADV. Apologies for not keeping the build log up to date but with the PB woes and finding Flikr troublesome I've not been posting recently. I shall rectify that going forward. Anyway, here we are, all done at last. AFV Club M1128 hull with Ledgends A DATE conversion mounted on it. Painted with Mr Hobby Olive Drab and weathered with various washes, filters and pigments from AK, Mig and Tamiya Air Defence Stryker Air Defence Stryker Air Defence Stryker Air Defence Stryker Air Defence Stryker Thanks for watching folks.
  11. Very, very nice, but......Starbuck would never have left the Big G 😁

  13. US Special Forces GMV and M-ATV

    Hopefulĺy this album will help you http://s213.photobucket.com/user/35th-scale/library/Models/Panda M-ATV?sort=3&page=1 And there is a build thread in the armour section but all the links are broken thanks to our friends in PB And if you message me an email address I can send you a wiring guide I got off a guy from the states who knows these things very well. If you want to add the cables that is. I didn't do it right as my fingers and eyesight just wasn't up to that level of detail
  14. US Special Forces GMV and M-ATV

    As far as I can remember the dimensions were way off. Panda has no radio gear inside but a more detailed exterior than the Kinetic version. ProArd did a lovely radio set but hard to get now. BLAST Models in France also do an MRAP radio set which is quite nice and will fill the interior for you.
  15. US Special Forces GMV and M-ATV

    Hi Dave, the Kinetic M-ATV was withdrawn because of the errors in the kit. It was Kinetic's first 1/35 vehicle kit and fair play they put their hands up and admitted the mistakes and didn't make any more. They have been promising an updated version for some years now. The Panda kit is very nice. Suspension is challenging but do-able and the parts need lots of clean-up and dry-fitting, bu t any moderately experienced modeller should be able to manage it. The SF M-ATVs as far as I know normally have the RWS, the extra bull-bar at the front and the rear area has build in storage bins on the sides as in MagMans pictures above. These would need to be sratch built
