    Milton Keynes goes XXL for 2019

    I think after the 2018 show they’ve taken on board the advice and put it on steroids! Mental, yet brilliant if it works out for them

    Trumpeter new tool Avro Vulcan

    I agree that it’s the airfix kit but I don’t believe it’s a hoax as it’s the official Facebook page for Trumpeter and Hobbyboss. What I think is that it’s the airfix kit they’ve used just to give an idea. What they have done however is blurred out anything around it that gives a sense of scale. Therefore I do think they’re doing a Vulcan only they’re rescaling it either smaller or larger because they wouldn’t of done that without a reason. Knowing Trumpeter’s idea of go big or go home I would like to hope that they’re scaling it up! Sam

    If it is a vulcan, and the scales in double and not triple figures I am most definitely in!!!

    Hello from Bedfordshire

    Hi from another dweller of soggy kempston!
  5. Hey Guys, I have here IBG Models new Panzer III. It's not everyday you walk into WH Smiths and see them selling models so I thought why not I'll try something different. Construction was simple enough and with it being 1/72 and no running gear construction, apart from gluing it to the hull. Detail was utterly superb though, puts some 1/35 kits to shame... Painted with humbrol enamels and finished with a light weathering as well as drybrushing. Really enjoyable kit to be fair, and I've got their panzer II on the bench now! Thanks for looking guys! Sam

    Takom 1/35 Pz.Kpfw. VIII Maus

    Here's a few more from the collection, can compare it with everything from a Pz.Kpfw. I right through to the Tiger II! Thanks for all the comments guys, greatly appreciated! Sam
  7. Hey guys, This is Takom's new Maus, and it's a nice kit! Resembling something of an IKEA item, the vehicle is pretty much flat-pack with sides slotting into each other and the most complex bits being the running gear and track, where the track is made from 3 pieces per link and each piece is secured by at least six points connecting it to the sprue... The paint scheme is off the top of my head, a splinter camouflage influenced by an ambush scheme, then painted in Mr. Hobby Colours. The weathering was grimy enough as I created various airbrushed effects and then using oil paints, washed, filtered and streaked the rest. Thanks for looking guys! Sam

    Dirty Canopies

    Hey guys, Do excuse me if this is in an interestingly wrong section but the subject is rather broad. My models are stored in the room in which I model as there's no where else to really store them unfortunately. As you may know there's a lot of dirt, dust and stray paint particles thrown about in the average modelling den and because of this crisp, clear canopies are no more.The canopies look generically dusty, but I was fooled into a false sense of security before finding the stuff on them is stuck good. Before I wade in there with the big guns, I was wondering if you guys have any tips or tricks in restoring the sparkle to the canopies of these models? As I said, they just look dusty and dirty, so I'm just curious as to what voodoo you guys use to get yours clean again. Thanks Sam
  9. Impressive work! Making me want to get mine out of the loft... Sam

    Fw.190A-3 Build Review 1:48

    Very impressive! Watched the work in progress and that’s a brilliant bit of work! Sam
  11. Following this! Brilliant work, I've got one in the stash at the mo and I'm thinking about the Accurate Armour Ambulance conversion. It'll be nice to see one of these not out the box! Sam

    Sea King HU 5

    Brilliant bit of modelling there! The base really sets it off nicely, shows off all the extra work brilliantly! Thanks for sharing! Sam

    Airfix 1/72 Vulcan XL360

    So a small update today, Unfortunately the minor inconvenience of the build up to A-levels has meant that I've been picking out each individual hour I can get to myself to work on the Vulcan. So far, however, i've been hacking up some more resin to make this time the main undercarriage bays. They're a relatively simple affair but the detail is utterly splendid. However, weirdly the things are all-white and don't actually have that many details painted so I've just washed them over in smoke and tbf I'm not 100% convinced at the moment. Meanwhile, yet not photographed, I've been working on the main fairing that receives the Blue Steel. I've removed the masking tape and to be fair the plan worked well, with only minor work required to smooth it out. One primer coat later and I may have that bit in the bag! Thanks for looking, Sam
