    Ukrania Russia in Krimea 1/72

    Man that's one as scarse as an honest politician. I tried to get one for a long time even if I was mentally willing to pay US$50.00 for it never was able to touch one so later I got a cheap metal one and that's if for my collection

    Scratching A Frog Prince

    I never said I knew anything about them, but I've certainly developed a taste for them.....I've had to stop myself buying this a couple of times too!

    1/35 88mm Pak-43

    Revell M60A3 (1/72)

    Thanks Sgt SH.
  7. Whaddya fancy? There's some smashing stuff in this scale, PST are kind of middle of the road, taking into account the extremes, but they do look the part once they're done.....Maybe take a look at Flyhawk's limited, but excellent range? http://henk.fox3000.com/flyhawkmodel.htm
  8. Many thanks Sarge. I really do enjoy the figure painting although think I need some new glasses as this one seemed harder than usual despite having treated myself to some really food brushes a little while back. The kit was ok to build, a bit of cleaning up here and there but not too bad. It's a fairly soft casting so some of the details are not that sharp. Might just be my copy but there seemed to be a fair bit missing as there was no horn, central headlight, pipe on the right of the glacis plate or the brackets for the tow cable. I added these from a mix of scratch built parts and some donated from an esci panzer I that was in the scrap box. Think there might a tow hitch missing as well but I won't tell if you don't Do rather like my early war panzers as this joins a munitionspanzer 38t on the shelf and there's the munitions version of the 35t in the stash. All the best Ben
  9. Great to see you back at the workbench Dan, looking forward to seeing more of the build as it progresses.

    Panther Ausf.A Late - Meng 1/35

    Typically lovely work Andy. You sure have patience and more importantly nimble fingers when it comes to those tracks! Rearguards, Badder
  11. Thanks for your patience and for popping back to have another look Pete! I'm pretty sure it was a glitch with IMGUR. Rearguards, Badder

    4 fists for Takom, M47 Patton

    That is looking so good!

    1/72 T-90s - accurate + easyish build?

    Oh boy.....I own at least one of all of them! How do kit manufacturers do this with such alarming frequency.....I despair sometimes, I really do.

    AFV Club 1/35 M113A1

    Somehow missed this build but just caught up and lovely work !

    Takom Panther A Mid-Late w/zimmerit

    Thanks Soeren Now that you mention it I am starting to regret building all of the interior also. Probably should have only built what's visible through the hatches and the turret ring and forgot the rest. It's fine to do a complete interior in 1/16 scale like the King Tiger I built but in 1/35 it is just too much and a waste as it's mostly hidden anyways. The Merkava isn't nearly as big as a Leopard or an Abrams, those two are monsters. Thanks Mick Good start maybe but went too far on the interior and now it's going to be a challenge to paint. Take care, Lloyd

    IDF M50 Super Sherman

    It turned out really well, despite the problems with the resin conversion. Nice on. John.
  17. I never used the Mig colours but they look as if they would be a good match.

    A30 Challenger.

    Thanks Troy. That's the clearest evidence that I've seen yet with regards to disruptive cammo on an A30. The argument for the Polish A30's though, is less convincing. Some opinion is that it is purely shadows. Some further digging required. Thanks for the photos. John.

    Panzer Kampfwagen II Ausf. F/G

    Sorry for the lack of updates, been a busy month and a holiday to attend. Pretty much every thing built now, just the lights to go on at the front. Some dry brush scratches around the edges, some more to do on the lower hull. Probably gloss coat next and then decals. A few errors, the desert color seemed to scratch easily after airbrushing and putting the turret on has scratched the hull. I rushed a few paint details when painting with a smaller brush and made a few errors.

    TAMIYA STEYER 1500A/01

    Thanks Kris.. First time experiment. I like it as a technique for light coloured vehicles. I'm going to try and crack it on darker coloured one as soon as I have the right subject. I might try it on the Wespe I'm working on in Panzer Grey. Simon

    Dragon 1/35 Stug Ausf.G III complete

    Looking good Tim. Gotta love that ATAK zimmerit as it looks the part and fits well and easy to install. I like Stugs and especially like what you've done with the weathered white wash. The camo peeking through looks just right. Those side armour plates look great and the beat-up markings really enhance them. I didn't use an electron microscope but the mistakes and inaccuracies sure aren't obvious. Take care, Lloyd

    Sherman tanks in the PTO ...

    Very nice uniform job on those tracks etienne, they look like the go to track, for the sherman at least, looking good
  25. Thanks for all comments guys. About time I posted a bit on myself on forum.

    Tamiya Panzer IV Ausf D

    Starting to really come together now Roger, keep it up fella

    1/35 Mirror Models T-20 Komsomolet

    I agree with Hamden, very interesting little AFV.....and yes as Kris said, not something I'd have wanted to dropped into......has the look of a more up-armoured Universal Carrier with the open backed seating. I'll look forward to following it along your build Rob. Simon.

    Taigen Panther G 1:16

    Thanks Simon. I am just trying. But at least after watching a 15min tutorial for Windows Movie Maker one is at least able to get a slide show going. Not yet as far as doing a real filmed video. We will see how much use one can get out of it :D
