  1. 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
  7. 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

    Berlin Brigade Chieftain Mk.10

    great job - someone told me these were always kept spotless in Berlin so well done to avoid the weathering temptation!
  9. Brilliant - i hear the next one out has a 1km mobile runway attached to it..

    Achzarit Early Hobby Boss 1/35

    Did a bit of research - it weighs 44 tonnes, 14 of which are armour. You'd feel a bit safer in one of these I think. Cheers David Thanks Jim - All the best to you Cheers David
  12. Happy Easter All - Here's the Hobby Boss Achzarit APC (Early). Pretty good kit overall with good PE which was easier to work with than many I've come across. I used the new AK Real Colours paint which I was very pleased with. When the Achzarit first came into service the IDF was just moving over to the grey Sinai Grey from the sand Sinai Grey if you see what I mean. Last photo with it's ugly sister. Usual comments and criticisms welcome - the left had track does need a re-tension but it was too late when I noticed Cheers David
