  1. Having been looking for the Italeri 1/72 Valentine for several months I just have met the Fujimi 1/76 one for a stupid price. As I never heard about it I'd like to know, whether is it visually much smaller and of lower quality than 1/72 Italeri one. Of course I know that the difference in hull length should be less than 4mm, but how much is it really in this case? Cheers Michael
  2. Am wanting to finish a Tamiya Valentine as in the photo below named 'Black Knight' in North Africa. Photo was taken in late 1941 or early 1942. Believe Light Stone would be correct for this time period but the dark sand shields are throwing me off as to how this tank was painted. I can see the white/red/white markings on the front of the hull and turret used during Operation Crusader. Any thoughts/comments/educated guesses on the camouflage? Thanks, Charlie
  3. British infantry tanks in 1/72

    In contrast to the plethora of German and Soviet WW2 AFVs the British tanks are not so well represented among the 1/72 kits. Trying to build a Valentine Mk VI (small turret) there's only ancient ESCI (recently labelled as Italeri) Mk II or a "wargame" extremely simple Armourfast kit of the same variant. Which one do you consider worth bothering with? Another important British infantry tank is a Churchill. And here again we have to choose (leaving 1/76 Airfix aside) between the 40-years old Hasegawa one, the ESCI/Italeri kit of similar vintage and the expensive new tool from Dragon. Is the last mentioned worth its price? Which one is the best basis to build a Mk IV (squarish-type cast turret with 75mm gun) model? Some years ago I have seen also the Churchill under the Humbrol and Heller labels? Were they just rebadged Airfix kits or something other? After some 40 years break in AFV modelling I'd like to build some dozen of the most prominent WW2 tanks. What I need is accurate dimensions and sharp surface detail - interior doesn't count as all hatches will be closed. Could you help me with building such a stash?
  4. Infantry Tank Mk.III, Valentine Mk.I MiniArt 35116 The first model of the Valentine (350 were built), it was not sent out due to problems from rushed production. The tank had a riveted hull, was powered by AEC A189 135 hp petrol engine and equipped with a 2-pdr. gun and a coaxial Besa machine gun. Its two-man turret forced the commander to also act as the gun-loader. (Wiki) Need to start another build today, it's Build Club and I can't get at my paint gear for another few days so.... Workspace ready - it's 1:15pm and I'm waiting for the guys to arrive shortly..... I was going to do the Austin Tilly but? So, here we go! And kicking off with the Drivers compartment which held no scary parts, only basic clean-up. This kit come with the Transmission and Radiarors so a little extra work can be added, fiddly but not difficult. Constantly test fitting parts and this construction to the hull to ensure it all has a snug fit. The radiator fit is delicate. Time will-out if this part of the build fits well into the body of the vehicle as the upper hull is slightly warped. However, It can be fixed. This is my 3rd MIB Build and 4th this year. Unfortunately, due to domestic issues I can't get at any of my painting kit for at least a week and I can't go a whole week without 'getting a fix'. I shall see how far I get as this coming week, for me, will be a very busy one. Next Time: The Running Gear and perhaps the Indy-Track
  5. Valentine interior

    Hi Everybody Have any of you wonderful people got/seen/know of any pictures/drawings ect. showing what's on the inner sides and floor of a Valentine when the turret is lifted out and some images from turret and transmision ? Could you share? I'm building an open hull and haven't got a clue what is between the driving compartment and engine when the turret isn't there. I have a part view of the right hand wall which seems to be bare but that's it .
