    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

    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.

    Fire Extinguishers: US Bomber Support Set

    Yes thanks.
  8. 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
  9. 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.

    Dutch Army vehicle colour before tri-tone?

    Thanks, that´s the info I came across on other modeling forums. Planning to build Austrian Leo2s in the future and as you may know these are former Dutch tanks. Most of our Bundesheer equipment is painted in RAL7013 brown-grey. Looking at pics of our tanks and pics of Dutch A4s, a difference in colour is hard to tell. Seems both are more or less the same colour tone, can´t really say if our army kept the colour or repainted the tanks. Our RAL7013 also comes in many different shades, from greyish to greenish to brownish, depending on the light.. p1087568283-3 by Reinhard Spreitzhofer, auf Flickr 8027479493_22c28c5986_b by Reinhard Spreitzhofer, auf Flickr 20131003_181022 by Reinhard Spreitzhofer, auf Flickr

    A13 Cruiser with 25pdr

    Would be interesting to understand more of the context around this eg who where wrote the Tech Report in the first place and what the preceding 89 paras were about. Without that we have no clue as to whether, for example, it was simply a practical design exercise for trainee designers to cut their teeth on.

    Sd.Kfz.173 Jagdpanther Ausf.G1 (TS-039) 1:35

    So, i guess that there was a price difference between the kits that included a metal barrel and the ones that didn't?

    Busy 1/35 2019 for HobbyBoss Too

    On closer inspection, nothing listed as new for 2019 in 1/48. This is the listed range, below. But they appear to have pulled a rabbit from the hat in 1/35 by announcing something not in the catalogue within a couple of weeks of announcing the catalogue! On the other hand, the catalogue doesn't show other 1/35 things they said they would be doing. So I'm not sure just how trustworthy the catalogue is.

    Austin Tilly.

    I appreciate the comments. Many thanks. I usually use Mike Starmer's Tamiya mix for the SCC2, but I compared the two finishes together and there doesn't appear to be any difference, so I'm happy with the Mig paint. John.

    Excellent buid on this one,and the figures tie in well with the dio,must say the guy at the back with the bottle looks like Tom Hanks,sure he hasn't snuck away from the set of Saving Private Ryan ,Cheers.
  27. Last week
  28. Good morning all, I'm in the process of assembling an Opel Blitz truck and have the option of high sides (with or without canopy) or low sides. High Sides Low Sides: I would like to know a bit more about these different designs/configurations. How did they work? Why the difference? For a 1941 DAK setting, which would be most accurate. I'm also assuming that it would be rare for troops to be transported without the canvas on to protect them from the sun? Many thanks

    Tamiya 1:35 chieftain

    Scopes would have a greenish hue to them on the Chiefy not blue, the laminations involved in making Armoured glass give it a transparent green look. Best way in achieving that is to paint the scope face with silver and then spray tamiya clear green in thin layers to build it up. Later on with more modern MBTs they used an anti laser coating which had an orange hue to it which again you can replicate with silver and tamiya clear orange. Regards Dan
