  1. First AFV build, seriously? You should be well pleased with that.....I would be. Your approach to the build was spot on.....IMHO you should treat yourself to a really good base kit and give 1/72 armour some more of your attention.
  2. If you have a couple of Heller Shermans in the stash you may well have enough spares to rebuild the running gear completely (although your tracks are likely to be a little short due to the M4A4's longer hull).....I believe Dan Taylor Modelworks are making a set that should vastly improve the detail level of this kit (but I suspect the running gear is something you will still have to fix for yourself).
  3. That is a lovely build of a tricky little kit.....These are probably the L&L tracks that I fear the most and having around a dozen assorted UM BTs in the stash it's a fear I really need to overcome! Do you think the issue could be dealt with by very slightly shortening each length & indy link individually or perhaps by shortening the long run under the roadwheels (where it's easier to hide)? I'd rather not shorten the indy links or one of the shorter lengths as they are always more visible.
  4. Still staggered by the immensity of this project.....Truly amazing! All the best for the new year.
  5. Sounds like Revell still haven't sorted out the instructions for their Kingtiger tracks....So take heart, it really wasn't your fault. The tracks actually go together really well if you approach them in the right way, but Revell screw you from the start by telling you to use the wrong number & sequence of parts around the sprocket (IIRC, it's been a while).....I used to have photos of the correct assembly sequence (which is actually quite simple, if a little time consuming) but PB ate them (along with everything else).
  6. Glad to see these back.....Hopefully the ex-MK-72 SdKfz.250s won't be too far behind.
  7. I think this one may be a re-pop of a Toxso tool, rather than an update of Revell's previous kit (allegedly they will be releasing a PT-76B with the same origins in due course).
  8. That's a cracking finish on a figure that's pure nostalgia for me. A heated needle or blade can be effective in removing flash from vinyl figures, or if you want to go a bit further, this is an interesting option: http://umpapas.blogspot.com/2015/09/converting-and-sculpting-plastic.html
  9. What a fascinating build.....Wish I knew what more of the words meant!
  10. So, @JohnT & @Paul821.....Are you in or are you just spectators of the apocalypse?
  11. Welcome to the end of the world. As fas as I'm concerned, the storyline is at least as significant as the model for the purposes of the GB.....Knock yourselves out! Still hoping we might hear from some of the 'Dinosaur Crew' and I'm surprised thre han't been more interest from the Luft/Panzer 46 fans.....Probably because of me teasing them in the past, I guess?
  12. Err.....This text doesn't seem to relate to the photos of the Leopard kit above, which clearly has L&L. I think you cut & paste from the wrong Leopard review!
  13. Looks like they've sorted the biggest issue with the earlier releases of this kit, sinkmarks on the trailer load-bed (either that or the new grey plastic hides it better). Hopefully tis might prompt Eduard to re-release the two large etched sets they do foe the Elefant kit.....Finding them at the moment is a nightmare, it took me almost six months to get a set.
  14. Allegedly a combi-boxing of this kit and the MIG T-54B was planned.....I believe it's listed on Henk's site. FWIW PS - Nope, it's not there anymore, just a brief mention in the Ammo/Mig section.
