  1. Hi Bjorn.....I didn't realise you were a member here. Very glad that you are. All the best Andy S.
  2. That ET Models etch looks very nice: http://www.etmodeller.com/product/277979829 It was made for Revell 03105, which is a much older kit based on the ancient, but reasonably accurate Matcbox Leopard 2A4, with the addition a new turret sprue: https://www.onthewaymodels.com/reviews/RevellAG/Leopard2A5prev.htm Your kit 03180 is a 2011 new tool, much more detailed than its predecessor: https://www-modellversium-de.translate.goog/kit/artikel.php?id=13094&_x_tr_sl=auto&_x_tr_tl=en&_x_tr_hl=en-GB Not confident how well the parts will fit, but at least some of the smaller items should be useable.
  3. These really are very cool. Iit's a bit of a shame that they didn't go to more effort to integrate figure and base (as Zvezda have with their 'Art of Tactic' range), but they still make a very striking set...What's the game like to play?
  4. For a bit of inspiration, here's an experienced brailler 'going to town' on another Strelets 1/72 artillery piece: https://www.tapatalk.com/groups/missinglynx/8-inch-mk-ll-howitzer-t329870.html It can be done.
  5. IIRC Revell did more than one kit of both the 2A5 and the 2A6 and there were various etch sets for both.....A bit more info is needed (kit # & etch set #).
  6. Love your flag bases, but I reckon they'd look even better painted black around the edges.
  7. The absence of decent Challenger 2 & Warrior kits in 1/72 is a continued irritation. Wonder if Takom might follow up on their Chieftains? Hope so!
  8. Double-Plus-Gonktastic! There's something wonderfully 'pantomime-horse' about the pose of the double-gonk.....It really suits it. Blimey! I was originally thinking of a whopping double-barreled blaster pintled off the Gonk, with a seat hanging off the back, so that the gunnery Jawa swings around with it. Of course @Pete in Lincs suggestion of an MRL Light-Artillery Gonk is also extremely cool, although I feel it would need a few more tubes or maybe a (Hell-Cannon style) barrel-bomb? Perhaps you should do both!
  9. @Will Vale Dude.....Surely now is the time?
  10. Had a feeling that would be the case.....Filling the undersides with plaster or similar might help to steady them.
  11. Are the bases integrated into the rules (footage etc.)? If not, maybe think about basing your figures on 1p & 2p pieces.....They're the cheapest bases you can get and all that weight at the bottom helps preserve your figures as they don't fall over.
  12. @Enzo Matrix Would it be possible to move this thread somewhere a bit more current please.....Still want to blow up the world, but there was a short delay!
