      Ongoing DDoS Attack causing Forum Slowness   26/04/17

      In case you have missed the announcement, the reason that the forum has been slow at times since the minor version update the other day is due to a Denial of Service attack, brute force attack on our email, and judging by the lag with our FTP response, that too.  If you're feeling like you're experiencing a glitch in the Matrix, you're not wrong.  This is the same MO as the attack in September 2016 that occurred when we transitioned to the new version 4 of the software.  We're currently working with US and UK cyber-crime departments, who specialise in this sort of thing, and we're hopeful that we'll be able to track them down this time by using the accumulated evidence already held.    We are pretty certain that it's a continuation of the same attack last year, only at a reduced intensity to deter people from using the site "because it's terribly slow", rather than taking it down completely, and we're also sure of the motivations of those responsible.  Spite.   Please bear with us in the interim, and wish us luck in dealing with these.... "people".

  1. This is IBG's newish release of the Polish Rosomak APC, which is really just a licence built version of the Finnish Patria. It's a very nice kit, with a pretty much full interior supplied, although hardly any of it can be seen, even with all the hatches open. The fit was great and the detailing's good. The wheels/tyres in particular were nice, being all styrene, so much easier to paint and weather than the usual soft vinyl type. Not the most inspiring of colour schemes, and the weathering's a bit bland, but it's pretty representative of how they looked when they were operating in Chad. Thanks for looking Andy
  2. OOB except for the luggage, cable and flag (which could be better - not sure tissue is ideal, I need to try Magic Sculpt or some such). Nice kit, enough bits left over to virtually build another superstructure. Regards J A
  3. Looks sweet, like the tracks with separate pads. looks like it will be a winner. Dan
  4. Hi, I haven't built a Tank in 25 years and have very fond memories of the 1/35 Chieftan by Tamiya which I have bought. I am also planning to eventually build a Challenger 2 in early spec and colours. The exact Tank I want is modelled by Trumpeter in their Challenger Mk.2 Boxing but I have come across numerous threads about various innacuracies and (compared to Tamiya) poor moulding on this kit. I wondered the Tamiya Challenger 2 desert kit or the Tamiya Challenger 1 kit could be combined to make a more accurate Challenger 2? It seems that the reactive armour is moulded into the Challenger 2 which would make it hard to back date, is the lower hull and running gear common between the Challenger 1 and 2? Could I then bash a Mk1 and Mk2 by Tamiya together and use the short skirt armour from the Trumpeter kit to complete it? Does anyone make a really good Early Challenger 2 in 1/35 given that taking potentially 3 1/35 Challengers and trying to create 1 tank will cost a lot and give me an interesting spares box! Thanks. :-)
  5. Hi everyone, My first completion for the year, Takom's T-55AM in Soviet Naval Infantry colours. I used Star Decals set 35-C-1054 to represent a vehicle belonging the 111th Tank Regiment, 61st Guards Brigade, Northern Fleet. It's not 100% accurate as that unit seems to have had a preference for removing the side skirts from their T-55AM's but I bought the sheet after I'd started the painting process and I prefer how it look's with the skirts! It also meant I didn't have to do a full track run either..... Colours are mainly Humbrol over Tamiya primer, 86 Light Olive with 67 Tank Grey for the rubber portions of the skirts. Tracks were done using 170 Track colour over a Tamiya NATO Black base, then dry brushed with 270003 polished steel and 53 Gunmetal. Weathering was done with 29 Dark Earth, 32 Dark Grey and 93 Desert Yellow. Apart from the Tamiya paints, which were sprayed, it's all done using a brush. On to the pics: Mike.
  6. I've never really been a figure modeller but there's an anniversary coming up that I feel I need to commemorate in the best way I can, and that's with a figure. April 1917 is the centenary of my Grandpa Walker's wounding in the Battle of Arras. I'm not sure exactly which date it happened but the 1/7 Argylls were involved in fighting at a location known as the "Chemical Works" from the early hours of 23rd April and we know Grandpa didn't get that far before he was hit. We also know from his discharge book that he was evacuated from France on April 28th, so that seems about right. I bought the Tamiya WW1 British soldiers from Hobbycraft a while back. I'm only planning to use one, the advancing soldier, on a plain base. I'm not aiming to recreate the final scene of Blackadder 4, just something simple. I'll finish him a a 51st HD Sergeant. I found this little unglazed ceramic plaque which will do fine as a stand for my soldier. I also managed to get it home without breaking it, which was an achievement. An aerosol coat of gloss black enamel will be the first order of business for it. Basic construction and a couple of coats of Humbrol 36 Pastel Green as an undercoat: followed by a mix of Revell 86 and 16 for the khaki and Humbrol 94 for the webbing: I also bought some Fields of Glory Models barbed wire for the base, but the I think the stanchions are a bit out of scale. The actual barbed wire looks quite convincing: Grandpa's army discharge book showing that he was evacuated from France on April 28th 1917: John
  7. Hi. It's my first post here (well, i put one in "Welcome" section"). I'd like to present the build of T-55A. It's Tamiya model in 1/35 scale. I got it as a gift. I prefer WWII models, but i decided to have a go with this one. There we go: Lower hull. And upper hull. A turret. Fuel drum racks assemled. Road wheels. A put-together. Some storage boxes. More work on a turret. Headlights. The grills. They come from Eduard PE set. A/A gun. Grills in place. Barrell. This is ABER. Everthing i build so far in place. Be back for more. Cheers.
  8. Hi guys, I will try to build the Revell 1/35 Leopard 1 from Revell. It will be in the Koninklijke Landmacht (Dutch Army) livery. The only extra's I will use are some metal tracks (Friul Modelismo) and a metal gun barrel (RB Model). The gun barrel is originally for the TI 67 Tiran, so I think I may need to modify it a bit. Pictures will follow later. Cheers,
  9. A nice simple little build with a fairly terrible kit! Full album here:
  10. Here's my Tamiya Somua S-35. Its OOB and I think the click together tracks are superb. Goes together superbly - only criticism is that if you have the hatches open there is only nothingness inside. I've tried a basic diorama using a FOG models base which was really easy to work up. I resisted the temptation to weather too much as these seemed to be well looked after and didn't see prolonged combat. By all accounts this was more than a match for the German tanks of the time but was used in a tactically inept way by the French. The Germans used them successfully in Russia and a few went back into action for the French post D Day. As usual comments and criticism welcomed. Cheers David
  11. Hi Pals, I finally finished the kit, to my taste. Not exactly as would have imagined that over, but I like the end result. I tried some new methods for me as the most severe pigmented and do some snow. I also decided to add at the end some leaves and dried herbs, to see what they looked like, and ... there they stayed. The kit is OOB except for the slogan in Cyrillic As a final point, I have taken pictures with a SLR camera, which is, I think, the perfect complement to a finished work, for good or ill. Thanks for commenting and watch, and the support and good wishes in the thread. Included link to WIP, and vice versa the RIP To WIP: Cheers to all
  12. Build this severals years back, the only aftermarket parts used in the build are 3 PE clamps. Canvas tarp made from tissue paper. [/url]
  13. Calling this one done. It was a fun build, but I got the most enjoyment out of the painting and weathering process.
  14. Wanting my model to look battered and poorly-maintained, I decided to use the hairspray technique to achieve a realistic scraped/chipped paint effect. So far, I have given the model a coat of Tamiya Dark Iron, followed by light over-sprays of German Grey and Vallejo ModelAir Rust. Then, a coat of hairspray was applied.
  15. New Chinese company with some interesting and new subjects: regards, Jack
  16. Hiya. Here's my latest project. After few WWII vehicles. I wanted to go for something modern. Few years back I was in Berlin and found a hobby shop. I bought Trumpeter's Grizzly for a bargain price as box was a little damaged. This is an outcome of this. Trumpeter's Canadian AVGP Grizzly. I read few reviews indicating that model is full of mistakes. Maybe it is, but it's fun to build and - in my case - for painting colour modulation training. See for yourself. That's it. As I said, it was great fun to build. Hope you like this. Thanks for watching. Dawid
  17. Hello, here is my latest model, a 1/35 Tiger II from Dragon. I have added Voyager PE for the exteriour and the skirts, a RB barrel and antenna and home made Zimmerit. The figures are from Mini Art. The model depicts tank "233" from s.Pz.Abt. 503 in Budapest. You can find several pictures of this particular tank online and in books, f.e. in "Tigers at the front" by T. Jentz. This allowed me to reconstruct most of the paint scheme. Only the upper surfaces, the lower glacis plate and the rear hull plate had to be improvised. I also tried to match the tools and the weathering to the photos, which depict a heavily worn turret upper surface. Here are some pictures: Reference: (source:!Bundesarchiv_Bild_101I-680-8282A-03A%2C_Budapest%2C_Panzer_VI_(Tiger_II%2C_Königstiger).jpg) Reference: (source:!Bundesarchiv_Bild_101I-680-8282A-06%2C_Budapest%2C_Panzer_VI_(Tiger_II%2C_Königstiger).jpg) Comments and critisism are welcome! Best regards, Thorsten
  18. Hi Pals, I have finally decided to build another vehicle from the time of Vietnam, the well-known M48A3. This is the version of Tamiya, an old kit, but as they say an oldie. It will certainly not be very accurate, but I'm sure I can get a good result. In principle it will be OOB, but maybe add some extra equipment. Let the show begin .. (lol). Thx for watch and comment, cheers mates
  19. One can never have enough Tiger II's so here's another one. This kit has some good points, especially the rolled steel treatment on the armor but also some not so good features. The tracks are not that great and probably will be replaced with individual link tracks. The link and length tracks are ok but they are too short to sag properly.
  20. Hiya, folks. I finished my Willys, so it's time for something new. This time I decided to build something more modern. I found this Grizzly in my stash. I bought it once in Berlin for a bargain price due to the box damage. It's an easy to build (i hope) model with no interior. It has lotsa mistakes - too bad. I'll try co correct some of them. Here's what's inside the box: But first, the box itself... Rubber tires. Some PE parts. Clear parts. And the sprues. The Hull. I also started on lower hull and suspension. So far everything fits fine, no problems. Some more details added. Some close-ups. As lower hull is nearly done, I'm gonna go for upper one. First I'll fill these 3 holes in the center of the image. They are incorect, the hull should be flat. That is it for now. Cheers. DAwid
  21. Hi All Here's a relatively quick build of Tamiya's old Pink Panther. pretty much OOB except for some stowage items out of the spares box and some replacement head light lens. A quick and easy build(except for painting the number plate, I gave up in the end), which I will make a decent base for. Mainly built out of respect for a character I'll be having a beer or two with at the end of the month and who spent plenty of time behind the wheel of these back in the early 70's. Hope you like it.
  22. This is a Tiger II with an experimental enhanced ambush camo scheme. Who knows, the Germans tried everything near the war's end. It probably turned out too labour intensive but it is pretty disruptive, especially in a forest with fall leaves. It's as far as I want to take it as it is just something different for a change. I've been wanting to try this and aside from the eye strain camo it's not too dirty, just rolled out of the shop a few weeks ago.
  23. Quad Gun Tractor BRITISH ARMY NORTH AFRICA TAMIYA 1/35 Hi everyone I built Tamiyas classic Quad in May 2014 after picking it up cheap on ebay. The kit came with Eduards PE set and, in addition to that, I scratch built a few extra details. The stowage came mainly from a Bronco British equipment set. The figures are MiniArt with Hornet heads and the base is a square of plasterboard covered with Vallejo texture paste. It was always my favourite when looking through the Tamiya catalogue as a kit so I'm glad I've finally been able to build it. It was first issued the year after I was born and after 40+ years, the fit and finish of the kit is distinctly better than that of the builder! Hope you enjoy the shots Thanks for looking Andy
  24. So so here she is, I've built using the separate track links and also the grill set. Everything else is OOB, the reason for the straw on the front is due to the tank being used in a Band of Brothers esk diorama. So here she is.
  25. Hello all, Here is a side project to my current (and next) aircraft builds - A 1/35 diorama with a SAS jeep and LRDG Chevrolet truck. Two classic Tamiya kits, ones which i've built in the past. These will be OOB with a few additions from the spares: Been wanting to do this for a while as these old Tamiya kits remind me of my youth. I've always been interested in the history of the SAS and LRDG but only recently have I read up in more detail about the units during the Second World War. Looking forward to it! Dave
