  1. 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
  2. Thanks Pete - much appreciated. I'm hoping to have more for you to see soon. I think the AFV bug has definitely bitten!!
  3. Thanks for your feedback John and for your kind words. I'll definitely have a look into Tamiya 1/48 models. Kris
  4. 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
  5. 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
  6. 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
  7. That's a fantastic 111 - they're definitely one of my favourites and you've done the type justice - well done
  8. 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!!!
  9. Thanks Clive - definitely recommend giving it a go - I actually started to enjoy it once I got going
  10. 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
  11. Thank you so much Sky although I'm a mere novice compared to a lot of the members of BM
  12. Thanks Crane - I'm sure you could do better than me - would love to see your version of the kit if you get one built
  13. You're too kind Valkyrie - now I've managed to do my first mottled aircraft, I've got no excuse to do more lol
  14. Thanks viper - that's very much appreciated
  15. Thank you opus - you're too kind and your feedback with regards to the mottling is much appreciated.
