  1. FV432 & Series III 109

    Lots of lovely research material Research 😊 by jongwinnett, on Flickr
  3. FV432 & Series III 109

    Tonight I made a start on the 109" chassis, using the Tamiya Pinkie axles and springs: Chassis by jongwinnett, on Flickr Chassis by jongwinnett, on Flickr I'm in two minds whether it was worth it - both kits are showing their age so there was some tedious cleaning up, and I don't think the workable steering works anymore (an errant drop of Tamiya Extra Thin has gummed up the works) although at least I have been able to turn the front wheels a little.

  6. FV432 & Series III 109

    The obligatory unboxing shots, or, ooh, look at my new toys… First the FV432 What's in the box by jongwinnett, on Flickr Quite a lot of plastic for what is really not a very big vehicle. Some nifty etched brass too, ripe for ruination at the shovel sized hands of 06/24. The odd brown bit is a suspension/track jig: What's in the box by jongwinnett, on Flickr Next the Landie, this is a Revel boxing but I understand this and the Italeri kit share the same moulds. Horrid end opening box of course… What's in the box by jongwinnett, on Flickr And finally the first extra. I’m not sure you can call it “aftermarket” when it came out before the other two, but the prehistoric Tamiya Pinkie includes some okish GPMGs, and poseable front steering, which I always prefer to the “fore and aft” look. What's in the box by jongwinnett, on Flickr I’ve also splashed the cash for a range of Tankograd reference books and some Accurate Armour bits: Old style fire extinguishers Chieftain stowage bins and Proper Landie wheels and tyres If I decide to go down the diorama route then more accessories may be wanted/needed.

IWM (CT 681)IWM Non Commercial Licence Fashionably late to the party, I have acquired a Takom FV432 2/1 and hope to make a decent fist of it, reports I’ve read suggest it’s a nice kit to work with. I’ve added a Reveleri Series III Landrover to the stash as well, largely for sentimental reasons as my favourite vehicle I’ve driven to date, is the 1983 Series III 88" Landie that my family owned briefly in the early ‘90s.

  8. Are those the Eduard etched belts? If so you've done a fine job of making them sit/hang naturally.
  9. Beautifully done
  10. Hi Ced! The IP is good enough that I wonder why I bothered ordering a replacement. Little enough of it will be visible anyway. I can take no credit for the framing, the kit is really rather good!
  11. Thanks for the info and the warning. "As was" will do nicely. Is there photographic evidence of it in 1940 condition?
  12. I shall take the lazy option and use whatever comes with the kit. This is, after all, a mojo restorer, or should be!
  13. A little yes. Not so much warped as bendy, there was no need to apply pressure to straighten them, the locating slots held them true. i've ordered a replacement panel, but had a quick go with the kit one to see how it looked: by -jongwinnett-
  14. Thanks Roger. by -jongwinnett- I have since painted the lower section aluminium, and here's a cruel enlargement of the cockpit framework by -jongwinnett-
  15. Although I have been doing some railway modelling, I have been going through a dry spell in terms of enthusiasm, productivity and just generally not getting anything done. Today, a broken boiler forced me to have an unexpected afternoon off. While I waited for the gas man, I made a start on what I hope will be a reasonably simple build to get me back into the swing of things. R4118, UP-W, Hurricane Mk1, 605 (County of Warwick) Squadron, RAF Croydon September 1940 / IWM Duxford September 2015 by jongwinnett, on Flickr I know the Airfix 1/48 Hurri isn’t perfect, but as an OOTB build it suits me. And as the kit markings include UP-W, which @procopius, @cedb and I saw at Duxford on our grand boys day out (was that really almost two years ago?) the choice of subject was straightforward. R4118, UP-W, Hurricane Mk1, 605 (County of Warwick) Squadron, RAF Croydon September 1940 / IWM Duxford September 2015 by jongwinnett, on Flickr I deviated from the instructions by building up the undercarriage box and main spar onto the lower wing before adding the cockpit tubular structure. I read of doing this in a magazine (Airfix?) and it certainly seems a more logical route, giving a square and sturdy foundation.
