  1. Thank you very much for the kind feedback Martin - really appreciated - I really enjoyed this model as my first foray into tanks - it's amazing how many skills and techniques you can use that are both similar and completely different between AFV and aircraft
  2. Thanks Michael - much appreciated. Your feedback on the collar insignia is well received - the kit instructions were useless for this info so I did my best to research it but couldn't find what I needed so went with some artistic licence - thank you for being able to clarify and clear this up for me
  3. Thanks John - I really experimented when it came to weathering with this one - nice to do something totally different as you can't really weather aircraft in the same way you can weather an AFV
  4. Thanks for your feedback Red - that's much appreciated coming from you as I'm a big fan of your builds - especially your fantastic dioramas
  5. Hi all, So I'm here now with my second armour build after my Kubelwagen which kick-started my slide over to the AFV section as I'm normally found in the aircraft forum. This time I went for another fairly simple kit by Tamiya - only this time decided to go for a tank - the Panzer II. I really enjoyed this kit and had absolutely no fit problems - I'll definitely continue to do more armour builds and have already added a few to the stash including a Tamiya Panzer IV and the new Airfix re-boxes of a 35t and a Stuart. So here's the pics and as always your feedback is appreciated especially as I'm new to AFV builds: Thanks for looking Kris
  6. Thank you very much for the very kind feedback - don't think I'd go as far as advanced skills - mine pail into comparison to the other guys on here. I totally agree with you about the kit - it went together so well and has now got me hooked. The wife will kill me though if I end up with an AFV stash as well as an aircraft one lol
  7. Thanks Pete - much appreciated. I'm hoping to have more for you to see soon. I think the AFV bug has definitely bitten!!
  8. Thanks for your feedback John and for your kind words. I'll definitely have a look into Tamiya 1/48 models. Kris
  9. Thanks for the advice Stix - really appreciated. That sounds like a plan - a 1/48 38(t) is on the list. I'll also do like you suggested and look for inspiration in the BM AFV section. Kris
  10. Thanks very much for that Stix - much appreciated. You're right about being addictive and I would like to do more - what would your suggestions be? Kris
  11. So as you can probably guess from my user name - my usual modelling territory is in the Aircraft section. However, I decided that I wanted to have a go at something a bit different and having been inspired by all the fantastic military vehicle builds on the BM forum I decided to give one a go. So whilst having a nosy around the Monk Bar Model Shop in York on a recent weekend away - I decided to pick up this kit: There's just something about the Kubelwagen that I like - probably it's simplicity and functional aesthetic. As this was a Tamiya kit, I knew I'd be in safe hands building this as my very first military vehicle. As you'd expect the kit went together with hardly any effort whatsoever and was one of the most enjoyable builds I've done for a while - I think sometimes it does you good to get away from your comfort zone. The kit also comes with a figure which you can have perched half in and half out of the drivers door which I decided to use so I could add a bit of interest to the model. I decided to go with the German Grey scheme (24th Panzer Division - Eastern Front 1943-44) rather than the other 2 schemes (both camouflage schemes like the box art). I liked the idea of completing the kit in the German Grey as I think nothing says WW2 German vehicle more than seeing one in this colour. So enough waffling from me - here's some pics of the model. As always please feel free to offer any feedback or comments - especially as this is my first vehicle and all advice is good advice. Thanks Kris
  12. That's a fantastic 111 - they're definitely one of my favourites and you've done the type justice - well done
  13. Thank you Mark - really appreciate that. Definitely give it a go - you'll do a great job - I'm not even close to the skills of everyone else on here!!!
  14. Thanks Clive - definitely recommend giving it a go - I actually started to enjoy it once I got going
  15. Thank you - that's why I went for the desert scheme as it was a bit different and it was going to make me practice my mottling skills
