    TAMIYA T34/76 1943 PRODUCTION

    Getting even betterer! Truly up there with the best. Jiminez better watch his back! What are you using for the chipping BTW.... sponge or brush, and enamels or pigments? I find the pigments great for rubbing back. The only chipping I've done so far has been using AK Interactive Heavy Chipping Fluid, and I've only used that on vechicles with winter camo plus a tiny bit of brush-chipping. I've watched how to chip solely with a brush/sponge and I will be trying that out on future builds. But smelly-bum how much do I want a Tamiya T34???? For something costing around 15 quid (IIRC) it's a bargain! Rearguards, Badder

    I still have a Bruni Desert Eagle blank firer that I bought back in the 80's. Stupidly though, I can't buy the 8mm blanks for it (not being a re-enactor) although my firearms licence allows be to buy and hold .22, .357 & .44 Magnum and NATO 5.56mm & 7.62mm FMJ ( the proper projectile stuff, not blanks).

  6. Plugging away with the smaller details, I think I managed to get the wingnut thing done, although I think I can do better Added the bolts to the hinges and the mudguard hooks, I just need to add a padlock now. Cheers Dan
  7. Looks excellent with the tracks on. Kind regards, Stix

    Easy Metal Links (tracks)

    I bought a set for a Leopard, they are easy to put together but the Leopard tracks are a little too flat or squashed for my liking TBH

    Tamiya Panzer IV Ausf D

    Looking good Roger. You’ve picked a tough kit for this project. The T34 I’m working on is of the same period of production, so many moulding anomalies to take care of. I like that RB MG 34 Kris, Looks sharp, nice detail. Keen to view the progress on this one nice work Simon.

    Pzr IV/70(A) Sd.Kfz.162/1

    I am not big fan of self-propelled guns, but build looks interesting so I am here. Good progress so far.

    Meng Panzer III ( Toon)

    Progress?; Not too sure about the skirts, need to work on em a bit. I might do without em completely, no rules Thanks for looking in. Dan
  13. Spent a few hours detailing the tops of the ballistic skirts. Well worth the effort, IMO. A mix of 1.5 x 0.5mm strip, Tamiya poly paper, punched discs, and Meng bolts. Almost ready for paint

    Sherman Firefly Tamiya 1/48

    Stunning model. All things - model, figures, stowage are lovely and making it all together.

    Noooo... I've been using that trick for years, honest guv. If you wonder whether your buttons are failing, just point the IR blaster directly at your phone camera in live mode, and you should see a flash of light when you press the button. If I had two phones I could video me videoing it!
  21. That you Carius. You are very kind. Kind regards, Stix

    1/35 Australian Centurion MK 5/1

    Very nice mate Got the Shot Cal version of this in my stash, I think I might just dig it out.

    Kinetic M3A3 Bradley CFV

    Hi Richard Yes it just falls together. The turret is a bit tedious with all of the detail and the "cut off the sprue and glue on" bolt heads are going to be fun but I didn't want the version with the ERA armour. This one will be in a NATO scheme rather than the more common desert sand. The carpet monster got one antenna base so it has an antenna off an Abrams, will look ok with paint I hope. Take care, Lloyd
