  1. Modelling Magazine

    I am creating a Modelling Magazine for my Media GCSE which is a qualification for 16 year olds. I will not actually create magazine as I don't have the money but this is required and I would like to know more of the community. Please fill in all the questions, this would really help, thanks! There are only 10 questions and they are all tick boxes or multiple choice. https://goo.gl/forms/shABhht7Xi43mdek2

  3. Hello Fellow modelers ... We have Four succesful Single type Builds for Armor. The M3/M4, Panzer IV, Tiger tank, And Patton. We also have two Soviet Armor proposal’s in the T 55 and now with the T 34. Let me ask you this question ? Would there be any interest in a Group Build of British Armored Fighting Vehicles ? This would most likely be in 2019-2020 plenty of time to gather everything together. This would cover From 1945 to present and each has countless variants and progeny to offer up as options. Im just curious as it seems we have interest in both German and US Armor. There are two build ideas showing good signs of some interest in Soviet Armor but no one has offered up British Armor ? I’m proposing this as a group build that will cover British Armored Fighting Vehicles. This would incorporate all British Armor proposed, designed, produced, and operated by any country from January 1st 1945 to the Present day. This of course would include both UK & Commonwealth units. To help Clarify the restrictions or rules for what is allowed. A.) The Vehicle of choice would need to be operated By the British military, Commonwealth, or others after January 1st. B.) The vehicle of choice would need to have been purchased by the British, Commonwealth, or Foreign State military (Army, navy, marines, or royal air force) after January 1st. C.) The vehicle would need to be designed by a British or Commonwealth based Company after January 1st 1945 (Centurion, Chieftain, & Crusader). D.) The vehicle had to be built in Britain or a Commonwealth after the date of January 1st 1945. This includes tanks like the Late Churchill’s that were built and used into the Korean war. Im sure there were plenty of types built in and used during World War Two were operated by the British and Commonwealth after the war for varying lengths of times. Again if you or anyone else is interested but are not sure please contact me. I would be glad to research and give you an answer. Im always looking for input and help so please feel free to offer ideas and/or constructive criticism. I realize this might upset some of the original joiners of this group build. That isnt my intention. I asked for input and votes earlier towards this idea. The results are in and of those who voted this was how the votes tallied out. Final count was 4 votes in favor of inclusion of all AFV/APC. And 2 votes of inclusion of all “C” Type tanks. This is 6 of 13 members. Less than 50%, however it seems no one else voted. So I will incorporate both post 1945. “ALL SCALES ALLOWED” Now some quick ideas for the qualifying variants. Heres an Airfix 1/72 centurion kit. Another one is this Centurion in Australian service. Then heres a quick look at a couple of kits of the Chieftains. First up is this Chieftain Mk.2 from Takom. And an interesting option with the Berlin Camouflage is Takom’s Mk.10. Next up is a Tamiya Challenger Mk.1. and a Tamiya Challenger 2 As there are a substantial number of Variants, Versions, and Prototypes just in British service I cant write down all of them. If anyone knows of a type they would like to build. That or an offshoot that they are not sure about please ask ? I will investigate and let you know. 🔺-Standard build rules apply such as the 25% rule. 🔻If you are using individual track links talk to me as i consider those to be a kit in there own right. 🔻I will hold the same absolute here as I did with my Patton build. NO WHIF’S - there are so many versions and sub-types of these that we dont imaginary tanks. 🔹 I will consider working prototypes so long as they aren't paper projects. A paper project is just another form of whif to me. please ask i will research and advise. 🔺I am of course looking for any interested members to be co-host’s INTERESTED MEMBERS 1.

  5. AMD Super Mystere B2 (P&W) in Honduras

    Hi all, Do any of you French experts, or wise owls of a Latin persuasion, know if the SMB2s operated by Honduras ever carried the 1285Ltr wing tanks, i.e. of the type used on the Mirage and Kfir? I'd really appreciate your thoughts. So far I have only found them with the smaller thanks in online images. Thanks in advance. Martin

  19. The Armoured Monster Due into stock in August PRE-ORDER AVAILABLE In 1916, British and French troops launched the Somme Offensive against German army astride the River Somme in northern France. This battle, one of the bloodiest in human history, has also been remembered because of a new weapon that shocked the German army, the British Mk.I heavy tank. Tank, one of the greatest inventions in the war history of the twentieth century, marked the beginning of a new era of army mechanization. Mark series heavy tanks went through several improvements. The only thing unchanged was their unique rhomboid shape which remained in many people’s memory as the main feature of WWI tanks. In 1917, the British found a new transmission and engine, and then they started to improve Mk.IV tanks. Thanks to the epicyclic gearbox, only one driver was needed to drive the new tank. The tank was powered by a 150hp Ricardo 6 cylinder in-line petrol engine and could drive for 10 hours on a rugged terrain. This new tank was finally designated Mk.V. Mk.V tanks were first used in the Battle of Hamel in 1918, when they contributed to a successful assault by Australian units on the German lines. During the development of Mk.V heavy tank model kit, MENG received great supports from The Tank Museum in Bovington, UK. As one of the most famous tank museums in the world, it keeps more than 300 vehicles, including the Mk.V heavy tank (male). MENG’s designers measured the real vehicle and studied a lot of reference materials in order to accurately represent this classic tank. This kit includes precisely reproduced driver’s cabin, engine and other interiors. Traditional cement-free workable tracks are easy to assemble. “Crib” trench crossing device is provided to show its unique history. We believe that this Mk.V will bring a brand new building experience for rhomboid tank fans.

  20. New Meng Model Due In September

    The New Meng Models Whippet. Due in September 2015 Thanks to its streamline shape, the beautiful Whippet originated in England can run at a high speed which is hard for common dogs to achieve. So it’s easy to see what British designers expected when they named a tank Whippet. In 1916, many problems were exposed in the first combat of British Mk.I tank. The dissatisfied British Army started to develop a new tank to complement the slower Mk.I tank. William Tritton (1875-1946), one of the creators of tank, was in charge of this project. The War Office called this project the Tritton Chaser, and Tritton called it Whippet. In October 1917, the first Mk.A Whippet medium tank rolled off the production line. It was 6.1m long, 2.6m wide and 14t heavy. It had a crew of 3. Two 45hp Tylor gasoline engines were placed at the front. Because of its small fuel tank, some fuel containers were hung on the hull. Four Hotchkiss machine guns of the polygonal turret at the rear of the vehicle pointed at four different directions. Compared to Mk.I tank, Mk.A was lighter, faster and cheaper. After its service in 1918, the British Army was greatly encouraged. As an famous example, a single Whippet destroyed an artillery battery, an Observation balloon, the camp of an infantry battalion and a transport column, inflicting heavy casualties. Almost a century later, there are only 5 Mk.A tanks preserved in UK, Belgium, Canada, USA and South Africa. After studying a lot of reference materials, MENG's team now presents the replica of this unique Whippet. This MENG 1/35 British Medium Tank Mk.A Whippet plastic model kit has the following features: the exteriors are perfectly represented; all rivets are replicated; armour plates of the turret can be bent easily; four finely reproduced Hotchkiss machine guns are movable; the track links are cement free; three paint schemes are provided. This MENG model kit perfectly represents the unique WWI Whippet tank. Please can you give us your opinion's to what you think about this kit.

  24. Hi folks, Now that I've got Gerty to something approaching the paint stage, I thought I needed some light relief. I'm wary of doing more than one thing since my GB completion record is pretty poor, but these are very simple. I picked up the All Quiet on the Martian Front starter box at the weekend after finding it for a decent price in a sale. Steam Tanks! Giant Tripods! Heat Rays! You can see how I might not resist such a thing. Production values from the box art - not great! It's printed from an extremely low-resolution JPG of all things - you can see the pixellation and even the compression artifacts. A bit embarrassing for the printer and whoever did the prepress work... Thankfully the contents look pretty good: Six of these tanks, which can be built in a couple of ways, plus three tripods: and a several bags of metal infantry, MG teams, and "rough riders" on motorcycles. I'm not promising to build all of this but I reckon I can get somewhere with the tanks and tripods. Plus I'm just desperate to clip some bits off sprues that don't need to be sanded to death Cheers, Will
