  1. Past hour
  2. I can tell you what colour the Air Products bottles are here in the uk. CO2- black cylinder. Oxygen-black cylinder with white around the top. Argon-Blue cylinder Argon/Co2 mix-blue cylinder with white top. Acetylene-maroon cylinder Propane-orange cylinder. Whether they were those colours in the forties I don't know but they have been for as long as I can remember. Tim.
  3. Sorry you couldn't make the deadline Greg. The Zvezda is a buildable kit, and should be fun when you can approach it in a relaxed manner.
  4. Today
  5. Very good progress, very detailed as expected. Who would say that an Oldie like this, beat a new Takom kit, what an unpleasant surprise for those who buy one of the new ones. I remember that when I first saw the Italeri kit, I was pleasantly surprised, because it seemed very detailed, even more than many of Tamiya, who were "The Queen" at the time, and that could hardly be bought for its high price, was Then when I discovered Italeri, with tighter prices, models that Tamiya didn't have, and some of an even higher quality, and even today, it resists ...

  6. looking good with a bit of colour to it beefy
  7. Reasonably. Because I used a painted polystyrene ceiling tile as the base with lots of bobbles, and built up the water in layers, it tended to follow the bobbles, thereby making waves. I also used a flat half inch brush. HTH's. John.
  8. Hi Nick! Maybe it’s time to try something?! I hope it’s not getting cracked...
  9. Hi everybody, most of the parts are attached now, only a few (machine gun rail, windscreen wipers) are left, then she's ready for some colour(s)! That's all for now, thanks for looking. Have a nice day Nick
  10. Hi all, I found on web this site. I never saw it. It seems to me they restore Afv’s very well and are there a lot of good walkaround. Hope you like. Ciao Filippo https://www.baiv.nl/

  12. Soviet Road Signs WWII (35601) 1:35 MiniArt via Creative Models Ltd. If you're travelling unfamiliar roads you need a little help to find your way, which is where road signs come in, and with the size of Russia and the likelihood that most of their troops weren't used to being away from their home villages, it's hardly surprising that signs became more important once the Great Patriotic War began in earnest. This set is full of signs of this nature, and includes military signs to guide their troops to rally points, service areas and so forth as they didn't have the luxury of GPS and satnav back then. The set arrives in a shrink-wrapped figure box with a painting of the contents on the front and brief instructions on the rear. There are four medium-sized sprues in grey styrene in the box, plus a decal sheet on thick paper that contains all the painted descriptive fronts of the signs. As well as the signs themselves there are a number of posts on which to hang then, one of which is a two-part telegraph pole with a lamp on a decorative bracket and ceramic insulators on short metal arms from which you can hang wires loose as shown in the diagrams, or taut if you have something to attach them to. Each sign is either metal or moulded with a restrained wooden texture that will show through the decals if you use decal solution during drying. Some of the larger signs are also made from a few planks, so the joins will also show through the decal. On the sprue that contains the pole there are also additional undocumented parts for poles and such, which you could also press into service if you can figure out how to put them together. There are 50 signs so there will be a few decals left over, but it's entirely up to you how you lay them out. The instructions recommend painting the faces of the signs gloss white before you apply the decals so they obtain the maximum brightness, and in case you don't read Russian, there's a helpful translation graphic on their website, which we have reproduced for you below: Conclusion Dioramas rely on the minutiae of the background to give that "lived in" look to the terrain, and signage is essential for all but the straightest of roads. The addition of the telegraph pole gives extra depth to any road scene, and the painting guide helps with painting the plastic parts. Highly recommended. Review sample courtesy of
  13. From photos I've seen, all the US stuff arrived in OD and were painted in local theatre schemes. That is looking very nice.
  14. I like that, lots. Your extra detailing with cables, chains, shackles etc sets it all off wonderfully well.
  15. Another GB with superb results. Well done to everybody.
  16. https://www.lexpev.nl/grenades/europe/germany/nebelkerze3939b.html Found this. Don’t know if that’s any help to you?
  17. Wow! I admire your patience and your dedication to the details! Have a nice day Nick
  18. Nicely done Roman. The dry brushing has brought out the detail. John.

  22. one world - superlative ! one of the best Elefants I have ever seen in the World of the Model Forum !!
  23. A coat of primer, in hindsight I should have brought black primer with me, but I didn't so this is how it will stay till I get home. The exhaust guard is still to be attached but I'll need to paint the exhaust first.
