  1. Past hour
  2. That's a great, battered looking IS-2! Superb weathering! Kind regards, Stix
  3. Wow! That is superbly impressive! Amazing weathering and finish! Kind regards, Stix
  4. That really is very impressive (as all your modelling is!) Beautifully modelled, displayed and photographed. Kind regards, Stix
  5. I saw this kit a while back going relatively cheap in a sale but I failed to acquire it. Having now seen you beautiful model I wish I had purchased it. Ah well. Fantastic modelling all round! Kind regards, Stix
  6. That really is excellent all round! Very well done! Kind regards, Stix
  7. As I threatened above an armoured tractor is next on my list.
  8. Today
  9. Thanks both of you for the comments. Yes, I thought that it would make a nice change from the usual sandy finish. John.
  10. How is it going Jack? Have you taken up your steelworker's err....brass worker's career full time yet? I can't imagine trying to solder these tiny 1/35 pieces. The pe in 1/16 scale is tedious enough and if it can't be super glued then it gets missed. Solder and I are like figure painting and I, just not happening. Hope you can get started on your Jagdpanther soon. I have a G1 and a G2 in the works and I could use some tips. Take care, Lloyd
  11. I must say you have about 10,000% more patience than I do. Not too sure about the sanity quotient though. All kidding aside it does look good, unique and a definite eye-opener. Keep it up, the turret is just a little project now. Take care, Lloyd
  12. Did some work on the tracks, well one one track, the left side only for now. Haven't done anything with the spare tracks yet. I was going to put some of that thick black mud on the wheels and tracks but if I goof then it's impossible to remove so I think the lower sides of the hull are ok for that stuff, not that it can really be seen. Yes I know there is a gap at the front on the glacis and gaps where the sponsons don't quite meet the upper hull on each side. In order to make the upper hull removable then the gaps become a fact of life. My first 1/16 Panther is the same and I don't notice any longer. Well since that one has side skirts then the gaps on the sides are hidden.
  13. Yesterday
  14. dunkelgelb on the stuka assembly (used Mission Models thinned with water - ok coverage). I like the green/sand contrast so looking forwad to the cab & rear with camouflage (will mask with blu-tac to try to give slightly soft edges. Moving away from tiger stripe to more green patches with dunkelgelb pattern (no patches)... like I said, its pure WHIFfery so thinking guy in field with spare Dunkelgelb would spray it to break up the green,,,,
  15. Thanks Yeoman. Yep, and they still never come out clean.
  16. Fantastic looking T-70. Superb finish and weathering. Cheers
  17. Some weird looking home-brew armour there. Wish I'd had a proper look inside before sending it to you now, but by gosh and by golly, I can't remember it arriving here at all!
  18. I've recently completed a Merkava, but it pales in comparison to yours. Such patience, skill and attention to detail!
  19. Last week
  20. The painting looks superb! The metal tracks are fantastic - looks like real!

    Interesting discussion, thanks to all. I admit I hadn't checked the date of the scheme and hadn't realised that it was quite a bit post-Caunter. I'm going to have to get one now... John
  22. I can second (or - more accurately - third) the recommendation on Forgebear. They are very good, professional people to deal with. Chris.
  23. Hello Terry, welcome Thank you for your kind comment, much appreciated. My joy is always to ,,play,, with the colours, different shades, highlights, shadows, subtle look, not tons of mud, Bundeswehr vehicles i like to paint and weathering in barracks traffic look, i like it more, and as i seen you too hehehehe. Yes as i heard, the Leo 1A5 is out of stock, and i am sorry i dont have a one which i could sell to you, i have only a Leo 1A4 and A7 both of Meng in my stash.
  24. It's unlikely to be as new as an M60. I have spent a lot of time looking at tank photos - and the closest I have come is an M41 in a museum in France that has an additional rear light mounted by the exhaust. It has similar bolts on the side - but it appears to have an additional support that isn't there. It is possible that the oval shape by the mounting comes from deformation associated with the hit. I also believe the hole in it is around 60mm, which would seem a bit large for a 50 Cal bullet. The mystery continues....
  25. At Shapeways you can also find a proper Vietnam era M16A1 in 1/48, the problem is that they are quite expensive
