  1. Really like the way you've displayed the Tadpole. Great looking model and really nice snow and mud effects too Andy
  2. Very neat work on the points Will, especially as it's N guage. Looking forward to seeing how it all progresses. Andy
  3. Hi witjas, The white is a heavily worn winter whitewash. Andy
  4. Hi Badder, sorry for the late reply The windscreen was something of a happy accident. I'd removed the kit windscreen from the sprue early in the build the check the fit. Predictably, when it came time to install it, I'd forgotten where I'd put it. I cut a new one from some clear sheet which was probably a piece of thin perspex or something similar. Either way it was quite brittle and one of the corners cracked as I was trimming it. I was going to cut a new one but then I thought using the broken one would add a nice detail to the kit. I took a few more chunks out of the broken corner with side cutters then scratched the radiating cracks on to the inner side of the screen with a needle. After that, it was sprayed with the clear green/blue tint along with the rest of the glazing and installed. Andy
  5. The B-Wing's higher retail price usually meant it got hit with VAT and the PO handling fee when it hit these shores (at least mine did). I guess Revell's RRP will be higher than the Japanese price but hopefully still a bit cheaper than importing. At least we'll know the price we're paying up front and won't get any unfortunate surprises. I've wanted to do another B-Wing since I finished my first, but the increasing Japanese price has put me off, so I'm pretty happy that Revell have decided to distribute this one. Hope we get the A-Wing too eventually. Andy
  6. It's not an E-100. They have vertical hull sides and four outer road wheels. The sloped hull sides on the model are closer to the E-75 although, again, that has four road wheels. It might be a conversion or scratch build, or some obscure resin kit. The closest mainstream kit to the one in the photo that I know of is the Amusing Hobby Jagdpanther II Modelcollect do some E-75s with a similar layout, although they'd be a fair bit smaller than the one in the photo, and are 1/72 rather than 1/35 You could check the World of Tanks Tankopedia. It's a good source for some of the what if stuff that sometimes get released as models Andy
  7. Amazing work as always Will. Zarbag's Gitz are definitely my favourites. I love the portrait montage you made for them. Andy
  8. Fantastic collection Bruce. All stellar builds, although the Hunter really stands out. Andy
  9. Thanks for the kind words everyone A Massey combine would make a great model. Maybe we'll get one someday. I have got Hasegawa's follow up kit to the tractor, a Yanmar rice harvester. Quite a small thing but should look good once it's built. Hopefully I'll get it done in 2020. Andy
  10. Cheers Simon. Yes, I remember your Bradley. I liked the way you did the negative, masked-off version of the logo. I thought about doing the same with this at first. This one is actually a decal, so no skill on my part. Andy
  11. Much like last year, I've had more starts than finishes in 2019. I'd been hoping to get a few long term projects completed, but various factors towards the end of the year prevented that. At least that should give me plenty to get stuck in to in 2020. In the meantime, and in no particular order, here's what I did manage to get done this year. Focke-Wulf Triebfl├╝gel Interceptor MiniArt 1/35 Part of MiniArt's new "What If ?" series, and a very nice kit. Good fit and not too many parts made the build very straight forward and relaxed, and some clever engineering of the sub-assemblies made painting a simple process too. More photos here Leopard 2 A7+ Meng 1/35 A re-tool of Meng's previous Lep 2 A7 release, this version represents a tech demonstrator built by the manufacturer. The type is now entering service with Hungary and Qatar, although you can't build these production versions form the box. Despite that, it's still a very nice kit. More photos here Abrams M1A2 SEP V2 VOIIO 1/35 This is VOIIO's first release, and they've made a really nice job of the Abrams. The kit's quite Tamiya-like is some respects, with a simple straight forward assembly and plenty of good detailing. Oshkosh M911 C-HET Meng 1/35 This has been a long running project for me, having been started early last year. The accompanying trailer was finished about 12 months ago, but it's taken most of this year to finish off the truck. It's turned out okay though, and I was happy to finally get it off the bench. More photos here Lanchester Armoured Car - Russian Service Copper State Models 1/35 This was CSM's second version of their Lanchester AC, this time with the modifications applied to the vehicles used in Russia. Like the original release, this one makes for a really quick and easy build and is a lot of fun to paint and weather. More photos here Rolls Royce Armoured Car Meng 1/35 This is one of Meng's more basic kits, and requires a little extra work to get the best out of the model. That being said, it's still light years ahead of the old Roden release. Full build here Renault FT-17 BS Flyhawk 1/72 Flyhawk released their tiny 1/72 FT-17 a few years ago and I've been wanting to build one ever since. I finally picked one up this year, in the form of this updated release featuring the 75mm gun. Despite the diminutive size, the kit's engineering makes the assembly very easy, and it builds into a very nice, if somewhat hard to see, model. Full build here Sharotank - Russian Ball Tank MiniArt 1/35 Another release from MiniArt's "What If?" line. A nice kit with a full interior, only let down by the grossly underscale seats which are closer to 1/48 than 1/35. I added a Tirydium Models lighting kit to illuminate the interior and headlight. More photos here Toon Sturmtiger Xinshi Hobby Non-Scale I've develpoed a love for the various Q edition toon tanks and planes that have been released over the last few years. This one is part of a new range from Xinshi, who are a Chinese online model retailer and distributor. There's no information as to who actually manufactures the kit but, since Xinshi are a distributor for Meng, I'm guessing Meng make them. More photos here Yanmar YT5113A Tractor Hasegawa 1/35 This is part of Hasegawa's expanding plant and agriculture machinery range, and it's the kind of subject I love. A bit different and left field, and lots of scope for weathering. More photos here GOUD-4 Mouse Droid Scratch Build 1/12 This was a quick scratch build of a mouse droid that appeared in the Solo movie. It was scaled to sit alongside the Bandai droid models. More photos here CR90 Blockade Runner "Liberator" Bandai 1/1000 Part of Bandai's Vehicle Model range of small scale Star Wars ships, this is actually the Tantive IV from A New Hope and Rogue One. I painted mine as the Liberator which was another CR90 Corvette which featured in the Rebels animated show. Full Build here Super Star Destroyer Executor Bandai 1/100,000 Another of Bandai's Vehicle Model releases, this one is the Super Star Destroyer that featured as Vader's flagship in Empire. The scale is tiny but the model is relatively large for the VM series, coming in at about 19cm long. It's also got an almost unbelievable level of detail. Full build here TIE Striker - Royal Guard Escort Fighter Bandai 1/144 And to round out this years collection, yet another of Bandai's VM kits (I make a lot of these). This is the TIE Striker that appears in Rogue One, but painted up in Royal Guard colours for a bit of fun. More photos here Okay, that's the lot for 2019. Hope you all have a great New Year Thanks for looking Andy
  12. Great builds Chris. I love the Japanese water bus. Andy
  13. Fantastic collection Pete. I really enjoyed watching the Kreiger builds coming together. Andy
  14. Thanks again for all the kind words everyone. Andy
  15. Must have missed this when it was first posted. Fantastic build Dan, and the base sets it off perfectly. Andy
