  1. What build is that then Terry? Stuart
  2. Great work John. With the list keeping you busy 'till Christmas, I have to ask 'What new project do you have for us for the New Year?' Stuart
  3. Nice work. Like the use of water colour paper to achieve the ripple effect. Stuart
  4. Nice job with the stays, nice idea with the use of the buckles. Stuart
  5. Fantastic looking build. Stuart
  6. This has been ticking along in the background for a little while and is now done. Here is my spin on the Churchill IV(?) A.V.R.E tank in 1/76 using the venerable Matchbox kit and built OOB with some little enhancements. With kit of this vintage, their was always going to be some issues of fit and detail which were soon overcome. The only enhancement I done was to replace the handles on the rear deck but I'm sure their can be other refinements like towing cables, tools that can be done...on the next one maybe. Painted with AK Interactive paint. Kit decals held out well. Very lightly weathered with an oil wash. I wanted to depict the Churchill in its first roll using the SBG (small box girder) assault bridge. The assault bridge was designed to overcome the coastal sea walls (up to 12' high) and once that job was done, the bridge operating gear was ditched and it went into a support role. Thanks for stopping by. Stuart
  7. Moving along nicely, can't get used to that orange/ red paint though. Stuart
  8. Very true J├Ârgen, just wished that their more kits of them. Stuart
  9. Lovely job. Here is my effort that completed last year using the Planet Models kit. Stuart
  10. Looking nice and used, good work. Goes hand in hand with ship building me thinks. Stuart
  11. A fantastic job, you've there, wish I was as that brave. One observation, the weathering of the tire treads is inconsistent, particularly between the truck and trailer tyres... you did ask. I use a Molotow chrome pen and my aircraft undercarriage. You can also use foil. Definitely, I've printed my own 1/72 aircraft decals but it is a little bit of an art and something to practice. Stuart
  12. Cheers @Dads203 but I think @JackG has supplied what I needed. So it'll be an 8' and a 4', just got to make sure them in the right place. Cheers for the quick response guys. Stuart
