  1. Completed this model a couple of weeks ago, just got round to finishing the simple base and getting some photos done; Overall Views A few closer shots
  2. Picked one of these up on ebay for more that what I'd want to pay. Sadly, Kettenkrad kits seem to be few and far between and it was a bit of a struggle to get one. This should be a nice little project anyway. Exams are coming up, so larger projects that occupy undue desk space may not have much progress on them. You don't get either of the figures shown on the box art, but I was aware of this, and may use the later war German driver figure included. Started by constructing some of the vehicle's internals. So far, it's a typical Dragon kit, with a bit of flashing and some mould seams to clean up.
  3. Pzr IV/70(A) Sd.Kfz.162/1

    Started today, the old Tristar kit in the Hobbyboss box Work starts with the two sets of road wheels - steel rimmed for the front and rubber rimmed for the rear. I've left off the rubber rims at the moment - they can go on after paint Then on with the bogeys Then finally for the day, the drive sprockets This is a typical Tristar kit, a lot like Bronco - lots of detail, and tiny pieces but everything so far fit's really well. Peter
  4. Using Eduard Etch sets

    I am unsure how exactly to use the film provided in eduard etch sets (like in the pic provided). I have a rough idea, but I'm not sure if I should paint the dials from behind, or what. Could someone with a little more experience please help? I have a few projects where there is film provided for dials and etc. Thanks, CS.
  5. 44M Tas

    I've finished another model kit for my slowly growing what-if tank collection. This time the Hungarian 44M Tas heavy tank. The original Tas only got as far as the prototype stage when it was destroyed in an air-raid, along with most of the documentation & tools at the factory, which put an end to its development. This kit is from Hobby Boss & is rather cheap & simple, so it only took a few days to put together. I then spent a month slowing experimenting with adding extra parts though. Most of which were made from inexpensive household items such as the camouflage net around the barrel is a stretched out bandage. The rolled up tarpaulin on the back of the turret & flag are made from tissues. The logs are random twigs from the garden. Bits of old wire for the handles & cables etc. Other extra bits are the fuel drum on the rear which comes from a Tamiya set. I added a fume extractor to the turret roof which was a left over part from my previous E-100 model. The side armour was extended at the rear with plastic card to make attachment holes for tow ropes. The cardboard box on the engine deck is from a set by J-Works. I also tried out printing my own custom decal transfers for the first time with the registration number plates on the front & rear. I think they turned rather well, I look forward making more in the future. I had a lot of fun adding all the extra parts to this kit. So much so that I might make another one in the future...
  6. Not really a construction wip more of a weathering and painting experiment, the ferdinand is an absolutely great kit by zvezda, pretty recent, and for £27.00 with link and length tracks it a total joy to construct, i built this over 3 nights complete oob , including kit tracks, and then primed , this was built as more of a paint mule so i could try out some chipping methods, no hairspray, all with a paint brush and sponge, old school, Also i need to learn to weather tracks, my sherman calliope ones in the gb are terrible, and a right let down, so i cobbled the ferdinand together to copy, learn, some techniques, the tiger initial, which I'll be building as tiger 100 from the battle of leningrad, this tiger apparently was captured intact by the soviets, this will be painted in a winter camo and I'll post the progress of this, I've got some pe coming for this from hk, theres a few bits that need to be re done , and I'll need some tracks which I'm hoping to pick up from cosford tomorrow, along with some mud and dirt effects for both kits, I'm thinking fruils for the tiger, comments on the ferdinand good and bad are sought, and appreciated, cheers Glynn
  7. As I've slowed down a bit on my Panzer II due to the fiddly etch, I decided to start another project. Couldn't resist putting together the basic chassis and gun. First order of business I think is the PAK, so I've been cleaning up the kit parts and adding the photo-etch parts. I'll be using this picture as a reference, as the Eduard instructions aren't clear where everything goes. (Though I hope mine won't look as ropey as this does in places) Luckily, there are loads of images of this gun online, so I have an idea of where things go.
  8. A new project then. What to build, what to build? I have plans for a summer project so I was hoping to find something simple, preferably requiring very little outlay of money, so a perusal of the stash. I know, actually building something from the stash, who'd a thunk it? As well as being cheap(ish) it needed to satisfy a couple of other things; not my current trend of IDF as I'm sick of Sinai grey and it's variations, it had to be in 1/35 & it had be fairly simple so no complex interiors. With that in mind, I stumbled across these two bad boys. M113 ADV - 1 by phil da greek, on Flickr I'm a big fan of the M113 in all it's guises but I especially like something that's a little different. So, with a little imagination, a little truth and a little plastic card..................... By 1984 it was apparent to all but the most die hard in the US Army that the M247 Sgt. York DIVAD was not going to work. Meant to work alongside and ultimately replace the M163 Vulcan system and the MIM 72 Chaparral system (AIM 9 Sidewinder on tracks) the M247 was not working as planned and was horrifically over budget, by the late 80's it would be a bad memory that nobody would admit to having been involved with. Something was needed to plug the gap. They could have gone down the route of the Flakpanzer Gepard from West Germany but what fun would that have been? The army needed an air defence system that was mobile, that could keep up with the forces it was meant to protect and could provide a degree of protection from the enemy air forces. You'll remember the gunner / commander on the M163 has his head stuck out. The Stinger missile was now in service with the US and had recently been used in combat by UKSF in the Falklands in 1982, could this system be incorporated into existing vehicles? The IDF would of course eventually take a four shot Stinger pod and bolt it onto some of their M163s and give us the "Machbet". And of course there would be the M1097 Avenger system, Stinger on a Humvee and of course the short lived but very successful Canadian ADAT. But before that..........................
  9. Hey guys, This is Takom's new Maus, and it's a nice kit! Resembling something of an IKEA item, the vehicle is pretty much flat-pack with sides slotting into each other and the most complex bits being the running gear and track, where the track is made from 3 pieces per link and each piece is secured by at least six points connecting it to the sprue... The paint scheme is off the top of my head, a splinter camouflage influenced by an ambush scheme, then painted in Mr. Hobby Colours. The weathering was grimy enough as I created various airbrushed effects and then using oil paints, washed, filtered and streaked the rest. Thanks for looking guys! Sam
  10. I had earlier done a diorama of the Paras in Afghanistan (not posted) and wanted something of the opposite... The front view. The rear view. All the figures were posed and arms legs and sometimes hands glued into a positions that I thought were more normal. There are some glaring mistakes..... All comments gratefully received.
  11. Okay, before I put up the pictures of the finished article - a few points: The Trumpeter kit as it stands is horribly inaccurate. Despite this, the kit builds extremely well and would make a fine model in its own right. There are a lot of variants within the class, so pick one loco to build. So here are the pictures of the finished article... Dave
  12. Here is Takoms new King Tiger kit 2096, the initial production, prototypes maybe. Interesting kit with the old style tracks which are indy link working tracks and no jig so harder to assemble. The Porsche turret, original straight fenders and several options for the exhaust. The prototypes and training units didn't have zimmerit and I'm waffling on whether to try it again or not. The turret with that curved side for the cupola would be a little tricky and the gun mantlet wouldn't be easy either so it may not get the coating. Made a bit of a start and some of the parts are from Takoms 2045 kit of the KT with the interior and the upper and lower hull don't fit very well at the rear. The upper hull is a new piece and it's warped while the lower is from the older kit and the two will need some persuasion and clamping to fit properly. Sort of strange representation of the cooling fan mounts but once the grilles and screens are in place it won't be seen anyway. Otherwise it looks pretty good and should be an easy build.
  13. Lanchester 4x2 Armoured Car Copper State Model 1/35 This is CSM's new WWI era Lanchester armoured car. It's quite a simple little kit compared to some of the armour mega-kits that come from a lot of manufacturers these days. Despite the simplicity though, it really is a joy to put together. The fit is just about perfect, and the whole thing was built up and ready for paint in only 4 days. There's some really nice example of moulding to, like the front fenders which are thin enough to almost pass for being photo etched, and the wheel spokes which are remarkably thin for an injection moulded part. There are a couple of errors in the kit. The little bump on top of the turret is a socket for a flag, and it should be closer to the turret roof hatch rather than at the front edge. Also the insides of the rear wheel arches should be panelled off, instead of being open as they are here. Neither of them are big deals though and are pretty easy to fix. CSM have a photo etch set in the works for this kit, although to be honest, I don't think it's really necessary. They do have some nice figures though which should work well for a diorama. This one's painted with Gunze RLM 65 and RLM 76 in a rough representation of Admiralty light grey Thanks for looking Andy
  14. M3/ M4 medium tank gallery

    This turned out a nice kit, good fit, no issues at all, theres a good range of spares in the box too for true shermaholics, thanks to all for a great gb really enjoyed it, nice one sarge Glynn
  15. The kit seems good, and the ET set seems fairly in-depth but straightforward, with items like the smoke discharger rack being completely changed for plastic rod/photoetch/resin parts. Might try to backdate this to a Polish campaign version, as I have plenty of spare decals, and I prefer the curved front.
  16. Hello! Its my new work. This is old Italeri kit and its look like very boring without additions. I have made the decision to add Black Dog conversion kit (very difficult in works), barrel for browning machine gun Master and wheel set of DEF Model. Painting - Gunze Mr. Hobby Color. Weathering -oils and pigments russian and ukrainian manufactures. Thanks for watching!) In best rewards, Konstantin!
  17. Here is my second try at Mengs Panther A Late with my first ever semi-successful attempt at zimmerit from putty. Pretty much OOB except for Friulmodel tracks and Elmers Wood Filler zimmerit.
  18. Hello all, Here is my recently finished diorama based around the 1/35 Meng Pickup truck. Entitled 'Hunting' the scene depicts an American Tier 1 Special Missions Unit (Army Delta Force or Navy DEVGRU) in a sniping/observation position, somewhere in Afghanistan in early 2002. I added some extra resin storage to the truck, along with some Legend AT4 launchers, a ProArt tac sat antennae, a radio in the cab (can barely see it) and some other small bits and pieces. The sniper team are Legend figures, the squatting figure is an unknown brand of ebay, the .50cal rifle is from the Meng kit and the M4s/MK11 are from Trumpeter. The build thread is here Thanks for looking. Dave

  20. My next major armour project will be this, an Italeri RSO with PAK-40, a strange little German vehicle designed to fill the role of a mobile anti-tank gun. I bought this packaged with the Eduard etch (an ebay bargain), which so far has been a nice test for my new bending tool. Here's some progress pics, after a few night's work. I enjoyed upgrading the driver's compartment, the etch makes a difference in this case. While the rest of this kit is decent, the tracks are what I would call garbage- stiff, thick, and seemingly too big for the model. I'll try to work out a solution, but I may have to find aftermarket tracks- if anyone has any of these to hand, or knows of some affordable ones, please tell me! Finally, a Zvezda Volkssturm man. The figure was fine to assemble, and nicely moulded for an inexpensive plastic figure, apart from one thing. The arm holding the gun does not fit at all, the provided Kar-98k being useless in this regard (but a nicely well-moulded rifle nonetheless), so I had to replace it. Luckily, I remembered from prior studies that Volkssturm units were commonly armed with Italian rifles, so a spare Italian M91 Carbine was chosen, and fitted fairly well into the hands. The way he is holding it isn't perfect, but a mostly untrained man would probably not have had the best grasp of how to use his rifle, so that's my excuse.

  22. Decent little kit that should be ready to paint soon- I need to paint and assemble some sub assemblies before I can get on with making the two crew figures.
  23. Seems like lots of Panthers being built so I picked up that Meng Panther A Late yesterday for a second attempt now that I know what not to do and what to watch for on this kit. I'm trying that Meng Panther A again only this time I didn't put the poly caps inside the wheels so they are easy to remove without breaking the swing arms like I did on the first kit. The wheels fit fine without the caps and will just get glued in place eventually. The Meng tracks are so hard to clean up with 7 sprue attachments per link so I chucked them and replaced them with a set of Friulmodel Panther tracks. Looks much better and lots less work. I'm also going to try applying zimmerit using Elmer's Wood Filler and the Tamiya zimmerit tools. I tried the Trumpeter roller zimmerit tool but that didn't work as the wood filler kept lifting and plugging up the roller. Clean up the roller with water then get too much water on the wood filler and it ends up a gooey mess. This time I'll let it sit for a few minutes then try the Tamiya rake. Never could do zimmerit but I'll try again. Here it is this morning with the tracks and wheels in place and the rest of the pieces just taped together for now.
  24. IDF "KESHET"

    I'm calling this one done. It turned out pretty good I think, pretty happy with it. It is the venerable (old) Tamiya kit that I found on ebay just before Christmas, there is a WIP if you fancy it. It continued my happy theme of M113 variants and the IDF with their adaptions of the vehicle. The Keshet carries the 120mm mortar, I've built this with the ramp up, first of all for a change as I usually build them with the ramp down and having studied pictures of the mortar itself I realised I wasn't in the mood for scratch building it, this was more about the vehicle than the weapon. The kit itself went together very well with little clean up needed and the usual clear instructions. There is some Tamiya, Meng, Accurate Armour a little Italeri, some Bison decals and some bits and pieces from the spares box for flavour! As always it was brush painted using Humbrol enamels and finished with Winsor & Newton acrylic varnishes. I'm working on a simple base for it inside a Tamiya "C" case with a little Signomatic name plate. Some photos then; M106 - 1 by phil da greek, on Flickr The original Tamiya box, late 70's maybe.
