  1. Guys many thanks for the comments , Terry a big part of my model making is the research for reference pics and I can sometimes spend hours trawling the net for them. I use a couple of sites regularly for reference pics which are , 1 , plain military forum ( top site 0 2 , spta military image group , on facebook 3 , http://www.flickr.com/photos/wanderinguk/sets/72157634542116421/ 4 , http://military-database.de/category/ausrichter-uk/
  2. Well I have to say thanks to Airfix for finally taking the lead on plastic modern British Military vehicles with there Operation Herrick sets. Its a shame they picked the very latest version of the Land Rover WMIK the "R WMIK plus " as this version of the vehicle has not seen service in OP Herrick ! It has entered service with the British Army & Royal Marines and is used with British Forces in the UK , Germany , and Canada and can be seen on exercise in these Countries . I have made 2 versions of the R WMIK plus , the 1st one on exercise in Germany and the 2nd on exercise on Salisbury Plain in the UK. 1 , Germany. 2, UK Hope you like them folks and welcome any feed back. Neil.
  3. Cheers mate , I do have a collection of Rovers and will post some pics when I'm of at the weekend .
  4. Cheers Pete , your right mate so many Ariel's not like back in the 80,s Neil.
  5. OZ many thanks for the kind comments and im glad you like it. Regards Neil
  6. Looking really good and the weathering looks spot on , one idea maybe a few muddy boot prints from the front of the vehicle up to the top of the hull where the crew have climbed on it .
  7. WOW ! Very nice indeed it looks spot on , great colours and great weathering . Top Job.
  8. Hi Dave. Many thanks for the comments , the EOD Rover is correct as vehicles serving across the water in NI were all green unlike EOD vehicles on the main land which had the red front wings. Here is a pic of the vehicle my kit is based on Regards Neil
  9. Hi Sean . Thanks for the comment mate , the Baracuda was all made from tea bags ! open the tea bag at the seams ant tip the tea leaves into a container. With the tea bag empty cut it to fit the sections of the roof , once done soak it into PVA glue and water and then lay it over the roof sections. Allow it to dry for a while and then re cover with PVA glue and sprinkle the tea leaves over the panels , allow it to dry fully then paint. It doesn't come out to bad mate. Regards Neil
  10. This is the E-WMIK TES LRA003 which comes with the 2 GPMG,s , the kit is very comprehensive one and does replace a lot of the Hobbyboss kit. it goes together very nice and the fit is great and gives you a great Rover at the end. It is the R-WMIK TES that has the .50 Thanks for the comments.
  11. oops missed the internal pics which show the full Bowman radio set up
