  1. 1/35 T-34/85 Tank

    Nicely done Jim, and you've given me a couple of ideas for my 1/48 Hobbyboss T34/85, when I eventually get round to unboxing it! I like the look and sit of the tracks, but especially the hand painted turret markings.

    The Zimmerit looks pretty spot on to me, but I would replace the wire aerial with an Aber product. Their aerials are not too expensive and machined from brass with the correct taper etc.
  3. Excellent work! I think the muddy weathering is spot on.
  4. 1/32 PCM G-55 Centauro

    Much better, thanks.
  5. Nicely finished!

    Can't see any images because you're using f**kbucket.
  7. 911 GT1

    Having looked at the Porsche's bodywork again I wasn't entirely satisfied with the painted black window surrounds, or the blue trim around the roof intake so I've set about it with some wet 'n dry and re-primered. This time I've used Tamiya's rattle can 'white primer' and it goes on silky smooth, much better than I can seemingly achieve with my airbrush. Whilst I was at it I sprayed my other project, the Ford GT40. Comparing both cars at the same scale shows a fairly similar plan view profile, despite them being 3 decades apart, and although the Porsche bodywork is much longer, the wheel base is nearly the same.
  8. It's looking great so far, and I especially like the ill fitting doors, very prototypical to my mind.
  9. Nicely done! You've inspired me to put a 1/24 scale jeep on my Christmas list.
  10. Thanks for detailed info, much appreciated, and I'm enjoying the photos of the 1:1
  11. 911 GT1

    Looking good Ian, Unfortunately mine is still born at the moment due to some AFV's getting in the way, not to mention a Fujimi Ford GT40 (1967 Targa Florio version) which I'm building for a friend.
  12. A very different and interesting project. Following with much interest. Trivia info; According to the DVLA records your 1:1 Hotchkiss was first registered in the UK on 1 January 1957, has resided near Chester Le Street since 2006 until it's last MOT on May 10th 2012, and only had 11,011 miles on the clock at that time. Talk about low mileage!

    Excellent job! I like the very realistic rust effect on the close up shot of the upper turret, and of course the shell holes and other damage.
  14. Very nice model! I think the weathering is spot on and I especially like the rubber bumper strips under the turret and the fender extensions.
