  1. Looking good so far!! I have a couple of modelcollect kots in the stash - really must build one.
  2. You'll enjoy them!! Fit wise they go together nicely and look the part once built
  3. 1/72 Tanks and armoured vehicle kits

    Excellent - looking forward to seeing what you do with it. Really must get mine out again!
  4. Cheers There's a few bits I replaced on the kit - jerrycans (with buckled straps), width indicators (cut down insect pins), wired up the turret smoke launchers, added periscopes to the insides of the hatches and the command aerial (pinched from a dragon kit). I also replaced the wheels with resin ones. This isn't really necessary but I already had them so thought I might as well use them. The kit ones have been donated to an italeri kit as they really weren't bad. Oh and I replaced the barrel as this was the worst bit of the kit (far too skinny). All the best Ben
  5. If you see Hasegawa's German Puma armoured car that is definitely worth getting as it's the most accurate kit around (and a cracking looking vehicle as well!) This is mine with a few added details, awaiting paint All the best Ben
  6. Not bad based on what they go for on ebay these days. They are quite basic but a good canvas to detail up a little. Mine is built almost out of the box, just with added stowage and a figure. Daimler mkii definitely served in Normandy (11th ADs Inns of Court Regiment used them) , fairly sure the humber did as well (I know the later versions were), but it might be worth a check on the latter. All the best Ben
  7. 1/7nd AFV's, what's the attraction

    There's a lot of AM around - it just takes a little bit of finding. Tracks and Troops webstore is a good place to start. Also recommend Dan Taylor modelworks and Part who make some excellent sets. I started a 1/72 Revell Panther Ausf A build on here a couple of years ago that shows some of the range of things on offer. Really must finish it off! All the best Ben
  8. Hi Steve This is the Daimler I built some years ago They are nice, basic kits that could do with a bit of detailing. However as far as I know no-one else makes them. Matchbox do the Humber in 1/76 but the turret is rather too small if I remember correctly. I'd recommend them if you can find them for a reasonable price All the best Ben
  9. Blame it on Black Mike...

    Good progress! I've been building the same kit using a set of roadwheels and tracks from a scrapped Dragon kit to get round the double width wheels esci use. I've been hunting high and low for a metal barrel as the kit one is utter garbage. I did find an M60 barrel that I thought might do but it isn't the same so am still looking. Be interested if you manage to find one All the best Ben
  10. Well done!! 3 tanks in 2 weeks - I haven't finished that many in 2 years!! At this rate you'll have modelled the entire 11th AD by the end of the year!
  11. Ha! Like the reference - haven't seen that film in a while but used to have the soundtrack on cassette in my old mk2 fiesta! Random thought is that aerials were 6ft but can't be certain. RB models do metal ones that are 2 metres if that helps. Rather like all the figures bit if I had to pick I'd go with b and c too. All the best Ben
  12. 1/72 Tanks and armoured vehicle kits

    It is - apparently for instructors when being used for training.

    Hi Mike I've had mine a while and can't remember where I got it from. Possibly either jadar or tracks and troops. This site have it in stock but have never used them so can't say what they are like https://www.super-hobby.co.uk/products/Magach-6-B-IDF-conversion-set-for-Revell.html Price is about £18. Regards Ben
