  1. Greetings from Texas.

    A very warm welcome to Britmodeller, Russell. I'm sure you will find it an informative and friendly place to be. Cheers. Chris.
  2. Chevi w. Flak 20 mm

    A wonderful, finely-detailed model, my friend. You have building and painting skills I cannot fail to admire. Thanks for sharing with us. Chris.
  3. Altered Carbon on your telly!

    Watched the series on Netflix last week. Looked amazing, great sets, state-of-the art Special FX, story stretched WAY too thin for the number of episodes... Would have worked much better as a four or five episode series, but Netflix wouldn't have wanted that. Plot was difficult to follow in places... some of the character motivation was not very clear at all. Tiny Mexican detective very easy on the eyes (enhanced frontage not withstanding). Agree about the dialogue... main character mumbled most of his lines into his own chest... resorted to subtitles in the end. Final analysis? Well worth a watch, but give your ears a good clear out before viewing. Cheers. Chris.
  4. Dunkirk movie

    I've just been to see the new Dunkirk movie and - although it was very well-made and produced on an epic scale - there were a few aspects that need some comment. A. Tom Hardy's Spitfire - who had any idea that a Spit could glide for (what seemed like) 10 minutes? Also, just how much ammo did that Spit carry? I thought that early model Spits carried a maximum of 12 seconds ammunition, but I would estimate that our Tom was carrying between 40 and 50 seconds worth..... (Yep, I'm only too aware that only a military nerd like myself would be aware of this anomaly). B. Soldiers on the beach. I would say that there is never more than 1,000 people on the beach at any one time. Is this because Chris Nolan has an aversion for using computer-generated imagery to enhance his movies? Surely the beaches would have been much busier than this if they had 300,000 troops to move? Don't get me wrong, it was a good film of a very important subject and you should give it a go. Cheers. Chris.
  5. Solo: A Star Wars Story - Teaser Trailer

    Lovely, smiley miley Emilia Clarke.... another reason I want to see the film..... Chris.
  6. Hi, Francis. Thank you for the reply. I am intending to build the Hobbyboss 1/16th Tiger 1 sometime soon (in this lifetime?) and I want the tracks and lower hull to be covered in fresh mud, so your information should be very useful in the build. Cheers. Chris.
  7. Solo: A Star Wars Story - Teaser Trailer

  15. 1/200 AMT Man in Space

    A great collection of legacy space-craft and a real tribute to your building / painting skills, my friend. I will resort to using a rusty, old cliche here, but "they don't build 'em like that any more!" Thanks for sharing. Chris.
  16. I can only repeat the sentiments that have already been expressed by others.... Excellent, superb, stunning work, my friend. A true tribute to your building and painting skills. Thanks for sharing with us. Chris. PS: What material did you use for the mud?
