    AML-90, IDF, 1/35, Takom

    Repainted the front and redid my steps, but hopefully a bit better: (I know, the barrel needs some TLC...) some more cleanup is necessary here slight damaged steps: turret (except for barrel) complete wheels dusted: may apply some more in the thread pattern, the way I tried for this result can be found here: http://www.scaledracula.com/how-to-paint-and-weather-rubber-wheels/?fbclid=IwAR2zMFoZnkx7WLoZ2PZcJHAUptv8PP0bI3q3NqQiUdRo21wUf2toThHsXRk
  9. German Tank Crew at Work (35285) 1:35 MiniArt via Creative Models Tanks despite looking cool demand a lot of hard work from their crews to work well. This is as true now as it was during WWII. This new set from Miniart shows a crew performing maintenance on their tank (well apart from the Officer taking a drink, so thats not changed either!). It arrives in a standard end-opening box, with three sprues of grey styrene inside plus a small sheet of PE as well as an instruction sheet and sprue guide. The painting and main construction diagrams are printed on the rear of the box, with colours called out in a large number of brands of paint for your ease. From the box you can build five figures, each having separate arms, legs head and torso, plus two caps. Three soldiers are cleaning the barrel, while a is holding some sort of tool. What appears to be an offer its taking a drink. There is a small sprue with two buckets on it, and an accessory sprue which provides various tools and tool boxes, the PE fret provides the doors for the open tool box and additional tools. The painting guide covers Vallejo, Mr. Color, LifeColor, Tamiya, Testors, AK Real Color, Humbrol, Revell, and Mission Models, with the names of the colours given in English and Ukrainian. Additional painted renditions of the accessories are also included for your use. Conclusion MiniArt's figures are excellent, and these figures can be used to give your Panzer a little human scale. Highly recommended. Review sample courtesy of

    Tamiya 1/35 M48 Patton

    I would say that in the second way you comment, at least I did it in mine (same kit, but the USMC). For the land of Vietnam, I used the specifier manufactured by AK, with a reddish / orange hue. I included some color photo of the M48, maybe you will be of help if you are interested. Cheers mate

  13. Been really enjoying this build, takes me back to making similar models as a child, although I had a bit less guidance. There's also a definite charm to seeing these Airfix models made, even if they are unrefined by today's standards.

    Meng 'King Tiger' 1/35

    I haven’t heard anything about any problems with their Panther kit. And to be honest, I haven’t had any with this one. The fit has been excellent. I’ve just fitted the upper hull, and it is very snug. Certainly no filler required with the front and back fit. It’s finally starting to look like a tank

    Photo’s of the 1st Infantry Division Museum Armor

    I'm glad that no-one has ever sued the museum. In my (very) humble opinion, if parents are happy to allow their kids to clamber all over the exhibits, then they should also take responsibility for any accidents that may occur. Chris.
  18. You wrote "Only one Tiger (P) was ever built to completion". Actually, ten of them were completed. The first eight were a match for this kit; the final two had a different turret. It was one of these two that served on the Eastern Front. Its turret had a side hatch and a different roof, and its hull had extra armour, so it can't be made from this kit. David
  19. Thanks, but already know that site. Nothing for Norwegian ones, for the Finnish one only a link to the already mentioned KMT piece.

    Thank you for the kind words. Yes. They did tow something, but I have no space for it, on my shelf. So it will stand alone.
