  1. And lots of those bits were there, in bits or badly cast. The new grille was several pieces of resin. Believe me, I made the best of what I had. This was the prototype.
  2. Thanks! Appreciate it.
  3. Something I’ve wanted to do for a while, a “civvy” jeep converted to a small town fire truck. Using the Tamiya jeep & Black Dog conversion. CJ2A 2 by phil da greek, on Flickr CJ2A 1 by phil da greek, on Flickr The Tamiya kit is superb, almost snap fit no glue needed. The Black Dog set is, well, disappointing. Lots of snapped parts, rough casting & air bubbles where you don’t need them. CJ2A 4 by phil da greek, on Flickr CJ2A 11 by phil da greek, on Flickr in the next couple of photos the dark green is Tamiya, the light grey is Black Dog resin & the white is plastic card that should be light grey resin. CJ2A 8 by phil da greek, on Flickr CJ2A 9 by phil da greek, on Flickr You get the idea, a fairly straightforward conversion became a bit of a chew, the resin ladder was so rotten that even after filling, sanding, glueing & painting I felt it necessary to hide it. Here’s the finished piece, the ladder rack ended up not square but I was past caring at that point. CJ2A 14 by phil da greek, on Flickr CJ2A 17 by phil da greek, on Flickr CJ2A 21 by phil da greek, on Flickr CJ2A 15 by phil da greek, on Flickr CJ2A 20 by phil da greek, on Flickr CJ2A 18 by phil da greek, on Flickr CJ2A 19 by phil da greek, on Flickr CJ2A 16 by phil da greek, on Flickr There we are, not my best but it’s on the shelf, a project I may revisit one day. Thanks for looking.

  5. Maybe in the wrong forum but very smart!
  6. Nice builds & nicely photographed! I like the reflections in some of the photos.
  7. Very nice, I think the 190 is the most attractive of the German aircraft.
