  1. Hi All, Here's the Tiger Models late Nagmachon. Having built the Hobby Boss one earlier, this is definitely the better kit especially in terms of the "Droid", glass, bar armour and headlights. Goes together very well and Instructions look just like Tamiya's - are they related companies? Painted with AK Sinai Gray then covered in dust as all of the ones in service seem to be. Love the look of this AFV - I think you'd feel safer in one of these than any lighter wheeled vehicle. Usual C&C welcome Cheers David

    Hanomag SS-100

    Looks great - I saw one at Saumur last year - French had used it well into the 50s.

    1/35 Sturmtiger Dark yellow

    good job nice finish!
  5. Hi All Here's the Trumpeter T62 in Iraqi service with ERA. Easy and pleasant kit to build and came with a metal barrel. Painted with a cocktail of Vallejo acrylics as they seem to have a million derivatives of sand colour. The figure (badly painted) came from the Tamiya T55 Enigma; he's looking out for A-10s. Any comments and criticisms welcome Cheers David
  6. Hi All, Here's the much lambasted Italeri Bergepanther kit. It's my first Italeri kit and I won't be rushing to get more, but it was very cheap and whilst it's been made clear that it's not accurate I quite like the way it looks. Lots of sink marks some of which I missed but I'm over it. Completely OOB apart from the AA mount,P/E Grilles and a few spare tools. The cannon was rarely fitted but adds to the appearance I think. There are a couple of million part Takom kits on the way which I'm sure will be much better but in terms of enjoyment this was one of the best £18.99s I've ever spent. Usual C&C welcome Cheers David

    Tamiya Brummbar 1/35

    Hi its always the way that you see things once you've done the photos . I've stuck the zim back down now. In hindsight I wish i'd left the mudguards alone as the Zim is tricky to get to lay down and the Saumur Brummbar doesn't have it on there in any case. Thanks for the feedback - Cheers David

    Tamiya Brummbar 1/35

    Hi Lloyd, I had the idea that it was a plate in primer taken from another gun but i take your point. Cheers David

    Tamiya Brummbar 1/35

    Hi Thanks, the wheels are as per instructions - I think you could put 2 more rubber tyre wheels on but not the full four. I can't find a photo of one with steel wheels at each end though. The one at Saumur is all steel. Cheers David
  12. Hi All, Heres the Tamiya 1/35 Brummbar late. I've added the ATAK Zimmerit set and painted with Tamiya acrylics. Goes together really well and with a bit of time the Zimmerit can look pretty good I think. You can simulate battle damage easily and it takes paint well Usual comment s & critique appreciated. Cheers David
