  1. This is my attempt at building a Belgian gendarmerie Minerva. After WWI the gendarmerie used these vehicles during the occupation of Germany. Top speed was 40 km per hour for a weight of 4 ton Weight, small tires and lack of power meant they had to stay on roads (limited weathering of the model) The Belgians often drove the vehicle reverse in conflict as the back was better protected. spare tires had to be removed to refuel. The driver would often drive the vehicle standing up ....times have changed.... The kit is very nice, I’d say better than their Lanchest
  2. I enjoy most of the models you present, but this one is sensational. Really, really nice!
  3. I started early in the year, maybe about 100 hours or so? I never really keep count of time and never set myself targets. since you’ve got some to do, here area couple of things. The horizontal tail stabilisers clicked in nicely, but under an angle, bit of sanding required there. Seen several others with that problem. Not hard to fix, but not good if you don’t notice in time. I had a bit of problem with the outer struts of the middle top wing part. They appeared slightly too short. Not sure what went wrong there. I am pretty sure the struts over the cockpit ar
  4. Hi Andy, started with desert yellow from Tamiya. Then masked the prop and sprayed on a darker brown. After that I used oils to blend it all and then finished it with a gloss varnish. The masking was a bit of a pain, but past that, it was all simple really.
  5. Hi, the camo is free hand. Wasn’t too hard to do really and the references I saw seem to indicate “soft” demarcation between the colours. The ribs are pre-shaded, you can still see a little remaining here and there. The colours are Tamiya acrylics, slightly altered to what WNW suggests.
  6. My latest build. WNW AEG G.IV early. Lovely kit. Figures are from CSM. couple of detail pics.
  7. That is an absolute winner! Very nicely weathered indeed.
  8. Nice, I hope you'll build a couple more and display them here. Well done.
  9. Very nice and realistic replica. well done
  10. Came up ok-ish considering the trouble she gave me. Think the moulds are getting a little old now. Couple of parts short shot. There are the tricky inserts and the resin Eduard added wasn’t the greatest fit either. Anyway, finished and in the display cabinet now.
  11. Very nicely done. Very clean build, suits the aircraft.
  12. very, very nice. I enjoy most of your projects, but find this one a real stand-out. Such nice weathering.
  13. I always look forward to your posts. Unusual topics, very nice execution. This in particular stands out for me.
  14. Absolutely great work on the old kit. Very nice. Love the colour scheme.
  15. The first one was very good, the second one is superb. Very nice color scheme, very well executed
  16. My lock down builds. These two are Eduard 1/48, royal class boxing. They are very very nice kits. Eduard always seems to have lots of parts compared to most other brands, but this one in particular fits perfectly. No aftermarket needed, it’s all there. As always, some little mistakes were made, but I enjoyed the build a lot and that’s what matters most.
