  4. Perhaps more familiar in the UK in its Panther CLV guise, the Iveco LMV (Light Multirole Vehicle) was initially adopted by the Italians. Perhaps uniquely among modern enhanced protection vehicles, it serves with both NATO and Russian forces, being built under licence in Russia as the Rys. According to Wikipedia it also serves with Albania, Austria, Belgium, Brazil, Croatia, Czech Republic, Lebanon, Norway, Slovakia, Spain, Syria and Tunisia. Surely once of the most widespread single vehicle types this century. The Italeri kit has been around for a few years, and is typical of the manufacturer, decent basic outline, some annoying mould issues, etch and (I hope) excellent transfers. What do you get: LMV Lince, Italeri 1/35 by jongwinnett, on Flickr LMV Lince, Italeri 1/35 by jongwinnett, on Flickr LMV Lince, Italeri 1/35 by jongwinnett, on Flickr My idea is to produce one for the vehicles used by KFOR, or at least one in NATO three-tone camo. A British Panther would be good but a cursory glance suggests a fair amount of scratchbuilt additions would be required, so I’m taking the easy route.

    Almost a month of fruitless polishing, I gave up and resprayed today, genuine Toyota red: Hilux 1/35 Meng kit by jongwinnett, on Flickr Hilux 1/35 Meng kit by jongwinnett, on Flickr The wheels were another mojo suck, and have been repainted twice. I'm satisfied now, and have started weathering them and the chassis

    It's smaller than anything I've made in 1/72, if that helps! @AdrianMF, wingspan in this configuration is 14ft. There's an extended endurance/payload version with 20ft wingspan and underwing hardpoints.

    Just a couple of evening's work gets us to this point. All that's still to add are the various engine pipes, prop and I'll need to scratchbuild the arrester hook, the only significant omission from the kit and understandable since it's so fine I have no idea how to replicate it.

  12. I'm great at starting build threads, less good at finishing them. @Procopiusand @CedB have been muttering (politely) about my being seduced by larger scale modelling and even earth bound stuff. Sadly this thread is not going to make them much happier! Up even further in scale, to 1/35, this is the tiny Academy RQ-7B drone, or UAV. 1/35 RQ-7B UAV by jongwinnett, on Flickr

    Don't know if he'd have anyone specific, but the generic figures from Red Zebra are well proportioned.

    Apologies for lack of progress photos, painting is not going well. Better weather forecast for tomorrow hopefully means I can have a fresh attempt .

    As well as finishing the interior, next steps will include a start on the load, which will be loosely based on the well known photos of a SF Tacoma in Afghanistan. I know this isn't a Tacoma (it's probably an older Hilux but is unbranded) but until I find a reference shot showing this model I shall have to make do. The SF load out in the box includes one sprue of weapons and stores, the same as in the Meng equipment set (although you get two sprues in the latter) - the equipment set includes a handy colour rendering as instructions: Meng Pickup with DEF wheels 1/35 kit by jongwinnett, on Flickr
