  1. The Trumpeter 1/16th JagdTiger is in stock at Axel's Modelbaushop. Mine shipped yesterday and I am hoping it will be delivered today.
  2. The final build in a series of three examples of upgraded US armour in use today. This is the AAVP-7A1 with EAAK as used by the Marines, but Gator is a lot easier to remember and Gator it will be for the rest of the build. This is the Hobby-Boss offering with (nearly) full interior detail. I'll be using a set of Mini-Art marine figures and I have ordered another set of the beautiful tracks I used on the Bradley. This build will be in anything but the US desert sand colour
  3. Time to move the Abrams build over from the Bradley thread to it's own blog. RyeField have produced a nicely detailed model that arrives in large box crammed with parts for three different versions of the Abrams. Considering the package the price is very reasonable. I have bought a set of crewmen for the build (yes, it includes a sheep. No jokes about Velcro gloves, Wellington boots or knee-pads please ). I also bought some stickers to beef up the view prisms.

    5/1 update. Spent some time on the "Motley"crew of the Gator. Spent some time adding road dust to the Gator. Probably do some "dusting" on the lower outer hull tomorrow: Pulled my next project out of the stash today, felt almost like sacrilege opening the box, even the instruction booklet is still sealed in a polythene envelope

    Happy New Year Lloyd to you and yours, thank you, looks better when it's dirtied up a bit. The liquid pigment sets from Lifecolor need a bit of getting used to but deliver nice results. Cheers, Julian

    A Happy New Year to you and Lady R. too Simon, thanks, needs a bit of cleaning to pull back the effects here and there. Luckily that is quite easy with these crazy liquid pigments. Wheels and tracks still quite stark but a dusting of, er, dust will cure that. Looking a bit better and not as beaten up as some of the photos of Gators suggest.

    1/1 update. Happy New Year to the fellow builders on this forum, may you have a productive 2018. Washes and some playing around with liquid pigments:
  11. Happy New Year Kev and congratulations on reaching the finish Pension in Holland is a bit like like the carrot dangling from a stick: the pension age is being raised in a true liberal stealth fashion. Enjoy all the free time

    SA-2 Guideline missile/transporter

    Very nice Cesar, the Big Ed set will keep you busy I am sure. Silly question maybe but is the launch pad included?

    30/12 update. Taking more touch ups than I expected. Need to do some work on the track pads before I start making things dirty again More tomorrow, calling it a day,
  16. It's in a lot of small details Glynn, the rope that ties up the motorbike and has started to unravel, the tea cup on the running board, the tarps etc. I love it, gorgeous work. Julian

    Bradley M2A3

    I skipped fitting those parts so that I could still open the engine bay cover.
  18. I really like the look of this build. The tarp covering it really gives character to it. This should look amazingly sexy when you get around to painting it. Julian

    Hi Simon, flashy, squeaky clean at the moment. The masking was done with Panzer putty, great stuff. Best moment is when you remove the masking and see that you have either achieved a very gorgeous looking effect or have made a complete b***s-up of it Free hand spraying without masking is more fun but this had to be tight edged camo. Photos show up alot of spots that need some TLC

    Hi Keith, I am approaching an armor OD at the moment so I think I'll be doing something completely different, just not sure if it will be a wingy thingy or a floaty thingy

    Hi Chris, Vallejo Nato green primer, Vallejo Nato brown and black. I'll get some photos up later. Just in the process of peeling of Panzer Putty and doing minor touch ups. Thanks Glynn

    Hi Lloyd, this is Vallejo Nato green acrylic ground and it is a bit lighter in color than the Tamiya Nato green. Amazingly these things do float

    28/12 update, rather picture heavy today. Base coat of Nato green added. The gator is turning out to be a very enjoyable build and is looking very nice so far. Wine time
