    Vacforms, does anyone still do them?

    I was wondering if anybody still does vacforms? I used to back in the day when it was the only way to get a model of something that was not mainstream. I ask because I am doing a kit that was designed to be motorised (1967 Tamiya Hunting Tiger) and therefore there are modifications and simplified details to allow this to happen. I am treating this kit as I would have done with a vacform, fabricating bits and using the spares box but it lead me to wondering about Vacforms in general. Do you still do them are they no longer built? Rodders

    Bovington Tank Museum

    I live in Yeovil and as such I have the FAA museum 10 minutes away. The Tank Museum 49 minutes away and the helicopter Museum less than an hour away Come and live in Yeovil if you like modelling. Good reason for coming back is the Tiger expo is now on for another year. You can use the museum ticket all year around except special days. I hope you enjoyed your visit and wont be too long before you are back in Gods own country. Rodders
  7. FINISHED!!! Got there in the end Thanks for everyones help Just some ariels to do and then i will call it a day Rodders
  8. I DID IT I GOT THEM TO WORK Thanks to eveyone who suggested how to do it I have managed to get them to fit around the wheels I am so pleased they even fit togeather after a fashon. I will use plenty of mud to disguise my workmanship but once again Britmodeller chums came up trumps
  9. Superb job mate and I have started working on the tape method but as you suggest I am using masking tape. Took 2 hours to get about 20 links to make a run. Unfortunately the painting is going to be compromised but that's life. It may yet end up in the bin Rodders
  10. Thanks I thought it was just me. I will try ozzys idea but don't hold out much hope Rodders
  11. I have the Dragon King Tiger Late production kit and I am just about to give up on it. The problem is the tracks I cant see how I am going to build them! They dont stick togeather unless they are glued and they are no good to me I need to get some rubber track but where? the pictures below illustrate the problem As you can see there is nothing to hold the tracks togeather this is the instruction sheet I didnt realise they are handed as well and there is no indication of the numer to be glued in a straight line as that would help It says "new pattern tracks" I would settle for any workable tracks to finish the kit There are a lot of them any ideas welcome on how to get them to connect Many thanks Rodders

    Panzer Kampfwagen II Ausf. F/G

    I bave built this kit a couple of times it is great because it is a quick build and can be found for less than a tenner. An ideal Guinea pig for trying all the techniques for weathering and pin washes. Looking good so far Rodders
