  1. Panzer II

    I think I understand, did you print it on transfer material? And stick it to the putty? Either way the tank is gorgeously painted!
  2. Awesome weathering! Looks like it's been sat In The snow for 5 years!
  3. Trumpeter 1/16 Panzer IV type H

    I do love the trumpeter build quality. Nice work!! N much better photos as @Badder says. I find the best way to get photographs of these is to lay on the ground. Heres one I took of my RC Opel Blitz Try getting the camera to the height a man would be and looking up :-). Then Insure a clean background with any foliage in the background being far away. :-) keep up the good work!!
  4. Su-85 from miniart 1/35

    I've managed a little more recently. I've learnt some lessons too. Mainly ... don't fix the position of the track tensioners until all the tracks are in place. ๐Ÿ˜ก I've added lots of electrical wiring to the inside, although perhaps it's not that neat... but don't forget the crew of this beast are a sloppy lot ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚. I proped the upper hull parts together to see how much will be visible through various hatches ... not much. But still ill trundle on making her suitably filthy. The miniart "functional" tracks are anything but fictional. They require you to "snap" them together but you end up breaking every single little pin that's preformed onto the tracks so I gave up. Cut them off and glued her solid. It's a bit of a shame but thankfully the t34 chassis vehclies don't have return rollers and usually are pretty taught along the upper return. So no sag to add. The engine cover above comes with two options...a plastic all in one piece... but you can't see through it. Or a 3 part plastic (1) & PE(2). I chose to add some damage to mine. ammo rack still to add ammunition and weather ... interestingly the kit provides you with a full supply of rounds.... however as the rack is mostly covered you can just put one in each of the frontal positions and 3 on top... leaving you with plenty of spares!! The kit also comes with functional pistol ports if you so choose. I only left one open but was happy with the result It's a shame that miniart went to all the effort to produce a 3 part clip for the stowage cases and still use a 2 part plastic case. The walls are too thick to leave open fully and don't allow for some bashing about to easily. However I've left one ajar to add a length of rope to later. Thats probably it for another week. Off to see Dunkirk tonight at the cinema (now it's been on a while I can enjoy with the mrs without being squashed in to a sardine tin! Lol)
  5. Steam in China. No spark arrestors

    I've an awesome book on the last days of steam, ( Steam, by Colin Garrett) I've found a bit of a recent liking for steam trains, having always loved traction engines. Awesome video
  6. @eddiesolo Yeah that photo worked on my iPhone. :-)
  7. Hypothetical N Korean win

    Multi functional nuke... they can use it as a power source until it goes bang? ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚. Seeing the news news this morning it looks like Kim has tested a hydrogen bomb. Japan recorded an "artificial earthquake" and state tv has proudly explained the test went well. I dod hear an interesting piece to radio radio the other day and it's sentiments were "who gives the current nuclear weapons holders the power To dictate who has them" Is N Korea just benign braver than the other countries and standing up for itself ?
  8. What image uploaded are you using? I can't see the images ๐Ÿ˜ข๐Ÿ˜ข๐Ÿ˜ข
  9. Brief guide to using Flickr

    If your using the Flickr app for your iPad it should be easy. I use Flickr through my iPhone. basically click the image you want to find the URL of at the bottom of your screen it should give you 4 options 1 ) โœ๏ธ 2) ๐Ÿ’ฌ 3) โ„น๏ธ 4) โคด๏ธ Hit the arrow to forward the image and it should just come up with a (copy URL) button. The app makes it so much easier however I have found uploads incredibly slow recently!
  10. Photobucket fix

    That's some effort! 100% urge everyone to follow your example. Credit where it's due!!
