    1/72 Dragon Churchill Mk.III AVRE

    Hello Roman, Very nice work. What colour Gunze Acrylic paint did you use as the base colour green if I may ask? Regards from Australia, Ian
  2. Hello All, This was part of a GB for the 100 Anniversary of the RAF. The kit is the 1963 pop of the Avro Anson from Airfix in its 1970's boxing guise. A bit of a labour of love and is no show winner, but she was bought second hand unbuilt and saved from the rubbish dump. Thanks for looking and Happy Modelling, Ian
  3. Hello All, This was progressing excellently till I removed the canopy masking and found that I'd cracked the canopy.... Grrrr it's only a hobby (repeat 50x) Apologies for the rubbish formatting - still getting used to embedding from flickr. Ian

    1/144 DML Tiger and Flamm Hetzer

    No not quite up to the standard of needing an electron microscope although a pair of $10 reading glasses does wonders!
  5. Hello All, after an enforced layoff from modelling I have recovered these from the shelf of shame and completed the builds. Questions and comments welcome. Gee hope this works, not used to using Flickr after the photobucket debacle last year..... Happy Modelling Ian
  6. Yes that is pretty darned good. have one in the stash and might camo mine too Ian

    Spitfire VIII kitbash eduard 1/144

    Hello Paul, Roundels and empennage flash are from Kits World 1/144 spitfire set. The rest are from the ebay 1/144 direct store. Not sure if they are in print still. Thanks for the comment and it would be good to see your spitty. Ian
  8. A kitbash of the eduard 1/144 Spitfire. Fun Build ... Depicting a RAAF plane from 452 Sqn 1945. Thanks for looking. Ian
  9. A few weeks ago I posted a Star destroyer from Bandai. So much fun I thought I'd give another a go and try a slightly different approach to the paint finish. Below is the result. A final pic with her sister ship. Thanks for looking Ian
  10. Hello All, First time in this section of the forum. Saw one of these a couple of weeks ago on another forum. Was impressed enough to try to track a couple down on online for a quick fun build. So I present Bandai's diminutive non scale Star destroyer. It's about as big as your palm. Superb snap fit engineering although I did use tamiya ultra thin cement to ensure a good fit. - a smidgen of filler was needed to fill a couple of smallish gaps but overall good fun to do. Paint is tamiya primer then gunze acrylic light aircraft gray H332 and some gunze very pale gray H331 and off white H2. Finish this off with some USN white H316 highlights on raised panels and some dappling. a pin wash of varying shades of artists acrylic eye mixed grey and MiG filters and oils from their winter camo set. Apologies for the iphone pics - doesn't really show up the tones very well. Happy Modelling All Ian

    Tamiya Quad Gun Tractor

    Yeah good stuff... Wow I don't think I have anything left from even a decade ago....... Happy Modelling. Ian
  12. Hello All, The latest completions - Nashorn, Panther G and a kitbashed Jagdpanzer IV L/70 all 1/144 scale from DML's armour series. Finished in Gunze Acrylics and MiG acrylics. Weathering in oils, inks, pigments and Tamiyas weathering compacts. Thanks for looking. Thanks for looking, Ian
  13. As someone who does a lot of 1/144 builds that is serous quality! Like that a lot. Cheers Ian
  14. Hello All, Dragon Models Panzer Korps Series Early Hetzer and Jagdpanzer IV A-0 in 1/144 scale. Good detail for the size but the rubber tracks are abysmal.... Happy Modelling all, Hope all goes well on the modelling front in 2017! Ian
  15. Hello All, While you lot in the Northern Hemisphere rug up and spend those long hours of darkness undertaking quality time at the bench, we in Southern climes sweat it out! Tamiya's 1/72 scale offering - My interpretation of the Kagero folio of Brown 18. Gunze and Tamiya Acrylics, Alclad II and some Games workshop paints and finished off with some oils. Hope Sanite is good to you and there is some plastic goodness under the tree or in the stocking. Happy Modelling all Ian
