  4. Hi Dennis. Nice idea for a project and I'm looking forward to seeing it in progress. Kind regards, Stix
  5. HI Craig. Wow! Great project and that looks to be a rather nice kit! Lovely work in the cockpit! Your IP and other equipment turned out beautifully! Very well done! Kind regards, Stix
  6. Hi Ray. I am sorry for the VERY slow reply! I managed to miss your post completely! Consider yourself counted! In fact you are number 30!..............I know......you are not a number........... Hi Bertie. I have added you two to the list at number 31. The GB will only be 3 months long [if it get's through the vote at the end of the year] (it's only a Single Type GB - not a full one) - so I'd suggest that's really not long enough for a MiniArt kit with an interior! I'm not a fan of modellers starting building before the start date of a GB. In my opinion it's a bit unfair to anyone else taking part. The 20% rule was originally introduced to encourage modellers who had, perhaps, started a build years ago but never finished it. Kind of a way to allow someone to finish a build started a while back. My suggestion would be to build your MiniArt kit some time when you have the time to do it right and enjoy it - rather than feel rushed. For some GBs I specifically choose to build something in 1/72 or 1/48 - that I know I will have plenty of time to do and enjoy the process in the time allotted. It's entirely up to you if you want to try and build your Australian M3 - but three months isn't that long if the kit is that complex. Do you have any other possible kits or is the M3 it? Kind regards, Stix

  15. Hi Steve. Great to see this one in the RFI section. It's a real stunner! Thank you for building it in the LTAT GB. Beautiful modelling as always. Kind regards, Stix
  16. Hi all. As planned, this will be my build for the GB: I bought this kit when it first came out in 2016 and it's one I've been looking for an excuse to build for quite a while now. I always thought this was an interesting looking vehicle. I'm hoping that, now I have finished my two builds for the Less Than A Tenner Group Build, I will have the time this weekend to make a start on this one. I still need to wash the sprues in warm soapy water, but, after that, I'll get it underway. I won't probably get as much time on this as I'd like until after the LTAT GB has finished - because I'm the host of that one - but we'll see According to Wikipedia: The AMX-13 is a French light tank produced from 1952 to 1987. It served with the French Army, as the Char 13t-75 Modèle 51, and was exported to more than 26 other nations. Named after its initial weight of 13 tonnes, and featuring a tough and reliable chassis, it was fitted with an oscillating turret built by GIAT Industries (now Nexter) with revolver type magazines, which were also used on the Austrian SK-105 Kürassier. Including prototypes and export versions, there are over a hundred variants including self-propelled guns, anti-aircraft systems, APCs, and ATGM versions. The Wikipedia page for the AMX-13 can be found: HERE Kind regards, Stix

  18. Hi Craig. I hope you and yours are well. How are you doing at the moment? I am sorry I haven't been able to keep up with other people's builds but it looks like you have made an absolutely superb job of your 109! I love the whitewash! Very effective. Take care. Kind regards, Stix
  19. Hi Ozzy. I hope you are keeping well. Great to see this finished. Lovely job! Kind regards, Stix
  20. Hi Greg. I hope you are keeping well. That's a great result there with your 109. I love the paintwork! Very well done. Kind regards, Stix
  21. Hi Francis. Thank you very much, as always, for your most kind comments. I know what you mean about the barrel....it does look a little on the thin side. Yes, good point about the scale of the models - I will try take a photo of this and my other build, this weekend, with something in view that will show the size of them. Good idea. Thank you. I am well thank you and I hope you are too. Take care. Kind regards, Stix
  22. Hi Dave. Welcome to the GB and great to have you here. Nice idea for a project and it looks like you are off to a cracking start. I've looked at this kit with interest in the shops before, so I will be intersted in seeing what you do with it. Kind regards, Stix
