Julian Brother I have thought about you often and just decided to google your handle and yea the dark side won :) Doing OK still doing A/C got a couple of German Armour under the belt nothing fancy I might add but a good representation.I am surprised the Wiffee is still putting up with you? OH and the Armour may be the trade off she said smaller is better no more 1/200 scale ships! I see now brother :)

I moved in here at Brit-modeller after leaving Model Shipwrights, nice site, nice people here who made me feel at home. You might like it here too.

1/200th ships, no, no more space to store them built or unbuilt :thumbsup: I have done a couple of 1/16th tanks though so haven't given up the monster size builds completely.

I think a couple of my wingy things builds are still posted here too.

;)

Those optics are neat.  Look at them one way and they're blue and another way and they're red. 

 

You should get with the Christmas spirit and make them red and green though, lol.

 

The racks turned out pretty good too, never know they were warped now.

 

Take care,

 

Lloyd

Thank you both Francis, Dan, the optics do look good but it's not due to my modelling skill but to the AFV Club optic foil I bought for the Princely sum of 6 Euro's :thumbsup:

Really can't take credit for the looks, it's just a nice add on effect albeit one I would recommend (the glue is good too B))

I have been looking for a tiny 1/35th Christmas tree to stick on the edge of the cupola :P

The racks were worse to build than they now look, used just about all of my inventory of "harsh language" learned during 10 years at sea on ocean going tugs and supply vessels.

Thanks for looking in Lloyd and you take care over there with all those polar bears and rabid penguins :thumbsup:

cheers

Julian

Not too many polar bears left, ice is melting and poor buggers can't take the warmth.  I feel really sorry for them and some of the pics I've seen are very very depressing.

Penguins not so much, see them in zoos and wonder why they are used in so many commercials and comic strips when they are really not that swift. (intelligent)

 

Yes I had to resort to some Evergreen styrene rod to patch up the racks on my 2nd Rye Field Abrams and then even some bedrolls and a tarp to hide some oops. Might

have used a couple of expletives myself.

Hate to say it but photo etched uprights and plastic bars would be better but probably add to the cost and those kits are already over the Cdn$100. mark.

 

It's looking good so far and the paint on the turret brings it together.  

 

Take care,

 

Lloyd

The added on extra armour makes the whole thing look a lot more meaningful and don,t :poop: with me kind of stance

What did you use on the clear shields are they painted or do they come in the kit that colour  :book:

Thanks Keith, Rye Field provide two sprues of transparencies: one the normal clear glass version and one tinted green. Looks quite good with the green tinted shields IMHO,
