  1. Here's my 1/35 Trumpeter BTR 80A. It's a great kit but you must get the sit of the suspension right early doors - I didn't as you will see. I tried to sag the tyres with small screws but I was in great danger of wrecking the hubs and adjusting the screws when the wheels were on was tricky Painted with Vellejo acrylics which I still find tricky to get consistent results from but does give authentic looking colour I think. The KFOR script was done with some stencils I picked up which I was pleased with. Let me know what you think - plenty still to learn but getting there Cheers David
  2. Build this severals years back, the only aftermarket parts used in the build are 3 PE clamps. Canvas tarp made from tissue paper. [/url]
  3. 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
  4. 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.
  5. 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
  6. 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
  7. 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
  8. 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.
  9. Here is the Flak 40 AA gun as mounted on the Zoo Tower in Berlin. And a comparison to a 1/35 Tiger I for scale. It's a pretty big gun, must have been fun hauling it to the top of the tower and at 20 rounds per minute how did they keep it fed?
  10. 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
  11. Krupp 21cm Mörser 10 in 1:35 scale from Takom. Finished with Ammo of Mig and Vallejo acrylics; MIG and AK Interactive enamels, 502 Abteilung oils, and MIG and Vallejo pigments. This model represents a German piece captured by Canadian soldiers of the 27th Battalion (City of Winnipeg) during the legendary Battle of Vimy Ridge in April 1917. After my Whippet build last month, I've definitely fallen in love with these First World War kits. When I started deciding which kits I would buy, this howitzer was definitely on the top of my list. I find subjects like this rather interesting; it's a niche (artillery), within a niche (First World War subjects), within a niche (armor modelling). I can honestly say that this is one of my favorite builds out of all the stuff I've done in my short time in the hobby. Like any build, there's things I like and things I don't like, but overall I think it turned out rather well. Comments and criticism is welcomed as always!
  12. Started a new thread as this was originally posted as a Hermaphrodite but now it's Female.emale. Decided to add the track grousers? and the un-ditching beam as it looks more complete. Added some spare track links, tools and junk to the storage box and roof and a heavy duty tow chain to the rear. I think I can finally say it's complete with all of the changes made since I started.
  13. Hi all, This is my completed Tamiya 1/35 Type 90 Tank with Mine Roller. Build Summary I built this pretty much OOB, with the exception of stowage, the wires on the smoke dispensers which were scratch built using thin wire and the antenna, also made using slightly thicker wire. The visors on the hatches were made by mixing Microsol Klear and Tamiya X-23 clear blue. I decided to keep the tank clean and weather it very slightly. The tracks, and mine roller were weathered a bit more but the tanks as a whole has a clean look. This is how I like it. I built the tank first and the mine roller second, as I prefer to build in sub assemblies. The mine roller tow cables broke off and so look slightly bent in the final model. With the stowage I added a few civillian Jerry cans to add some colour and a brief case carrying the launch codes! The colours on the tank are slightly off as I decided not to use the Tamiya JGSDF colours as I do not like to paint with acrylics, so the tank was painted using Humbrol enamels, with colours that were eyeballed to match but also to create more of contrast. Finally the panel lines were highlighted using Copic Multi liner pens - Black using the 0.03mm tip and the 0.05mm tip. I prefer using these to washes as it gives me more control and also helps create that clean look I was going for. The paint was faded slightly in areas and preshaded in others to give that ever so slight weathered feel. Kit Details (from Brand: Tamiya Title: Japanese Type 90 Tank with Mine Roller Number: 35236 Scale: 1:35 Type: Full kit Released: 1999 | Rebox (Updated/New parts) based on Tamiya Kit 35208 released in 1996 Final Video Type 90 with Mine Roller Type 90 without Mine Roller Final Photos I hope you all like it. All comments welcome.
  14. Here is my attempt at this excellent kit.
  15. Fresh off the heels of my Whippet build, I decided to stick with the First World War theme and build this interesting little kit from Takom. The kit gives you two options for construction: the short-barreled 1910 model and it's replacement, the long-barreled 1916 model. I opted for the 1910 model because the color guide shows a piece captured by Canadian soldiers of the 27th Battalion (City of Winnipeg) during the Battle of Vimy Ridge in April 1917. Overall, this kit goes together well with no major issues. The biggest problem is the photo etch rifling for the barrel; it's kind of a pain because it's too large and rolling photo etch can be troublesome, but after trimming a couple of ridges off it went it much better. The two pins under the barrel housing snapped while I was attempting to remove them from the sprue, so they were replaced with brass rod. The support rods for the gun shield didn't quite fit so I cut them off and will replace them with styrene rod after assembly (the gun shield was left off for ease of painting). I also added a few extra bolts taken from the spares provided in the Whippet kit plus pins for the wheels and gun mount. I used Alclad grey primer and then preshaded with Tamiya German Grey (XF-63). The main color is Ammo of MIG Yellow Grey and the green is Pale Green mixed with Yellow Grey. A different green is listed in the color call-out, but the Pale Green is closer to the pictures provided. All of the chipping was done with Yellow Grey (over the green areas) and a mix of some Vallejo dark browns and black over everything else. The track pads were also painted with XF-63 separately from the wheels. After a brown filter was applied over the entire model to tone everything down and bring the colors together, the rivets and details were given a wash with Dark Green Grey panel line wash from Ammo of MIG's aircraft line and some streaking was applied with MIG Streaking Grime. After gluing the track pads to the wheels, I sponged on some Yellow Grey to simulate worn off paint. With a majority of the weathering done, the model was given a coat of gloss varnish to seal in the enamels and prep the surface for the two decals representing graffiti applied by Canadian troops to claim their prize (these are applied after weathering to show fresh paint). After the decals go on, I'll add more dirt buildup using oils and more enamels on the lower areas of the model.
  16. Here is the Dragon 15cm field gun and the Dragon 7 ton half track tow vehicle.
  17. Takom's 1/35 scale Medium Mark A Whippet, completed as tank A321 serving near Achiet-le-Petit, France, in August 1918. Finished in Vallejo & Tamiya acrylics; MIG enamels; Abteilung 502 oils; and MIG, Secret Weapon Miniatures, and Vallejo pigments. This was my first entry into armor modeling and there are some things I don't like about the finished product and some things that I think turned out great, but overall I'm pretty happy with it. I've always been fascinated by the First World War and I think this will serve as a nice springboard into more models in this subject. (I've picked up this kit, the Meng Whippet, the Meng Renault FT, the Takom Krupp 21cm Mörser, and the Takom Mark V heavy tank kit in the last month!) Please feel free to tell me what I can approve upon as comments and criticism are always welcomed!
  18. Here is a fairly new Canadian unit in Afghanistan, it's fairly new because it's still mostly green. Easy build with lots of detail, quite a bunch of add-on parts and a surprising amount of photo etch.
  19. Last one, alongside the Meng Whippet: Regards J A
  20. Started this today and hope to build it as a Canadian version to go with my C2 MEXAS Leopard. Haven't made much headway so far.
  21. Here is the Trumpeter 105mm Kanone in transport mode.
  22. 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,
  23. Hi guys, I've been struggling to get any modelling time over the last few weeks, but for a good reason, I have been building a new man cave! I have it almost finished, in the meantime I have finished the winter diorama using the MiniArt SU-85. This is only my second tank build, it's not a bad little kit apart from the rubbish plastic tracks that were a fiddle to build. It was an experiment in modelling ice and snow, I used 5 minute epoxy for the icicles and tried a product called Krycell for the snow from a company called Precision Ice and Snow. Anyway it dragged on far too long and I am glad it's finished, overall I am happy with how it came out. Wear your winter woolies before looking at the pictures, I won't be held responsible for any frostbite claims LOL!
  24. As my 'thing' is modern AAA I snapped up the Armo resin kit of the ZSU-57-2 when I found it for sale. When I say that the kit is a 'challenge' it is no understatement so when Meng and Trumpeter announced that they would be bringing one out in plastic I had to think long and hard whether to abandon the resin kit or build it. Well I started to build it but got disillusioned when I found problems with the wheels due to bad casting. Although Meng's came out first I decided to wait for Trumpeter's offering as the ammo storage in the turret looked more realistic. Trumpy's kit dos not include the radio but I had already bought one for the resin kit. On the whole it was a good kit to build except that the large ammo storage brackets kept breaking into smaller pieces as I was fitting them. The problem was that the ammo clips were slightly to large once they and the brackets were painted. I eventually got them all to fit but the air was blue for a while! I bought a couple of packets of brass empty 57 mm shells to put in the basket on the back of the turret to simulate 16 rounds fired. These are the pictures I took of the finished model. Unfortunately the pictures have not come out as well as I wanted as the light was not very good. That's the first batch
