    1/125 SUNKEN U-BOAT.

    Cheers mate, looking knackered seems to be a talent of mine. Ta very much Mick, glad you like it. Chuffed you like it and for the wonderful comment, really appreciate it.
  2. This is a M19 MMGC the original was a Chaffe chassis but this is adapted from a Bulldog. It runs the other way around as the Bulldog is rear drive and the M19 is front sprocket driven. The turret works but the twin 40 MM Bofors are manual lifted. Top superstructure is all scratched made. https://preview.ibb.co/h3Enp8/P1013224.jpg https://preview.ibb.co/bHY2NT/P1013225.jpg https://preview.ibb.co/hyqhNT/P1013226.jpg https://preview.ibb.co/bMdDU8/P1013227.jpg https://preview.ibb.co/mHAtU8/P1013228.jpg https://preview.ibb.co/bWW098/P1013229.jpg https://preview.ibb.co/coUWGo/P1013230.jpg https://preview.ibb.co/nzqtU8/P1013233.jpg https://preview.ibb.co/h3O2NT/P1013237.jpg Si:)

    Thank you mate, glad you like her and thank you for stopping by. Cheers Ray, these sunken subs are my bit of not worrying about having to do something perfect, helps me to just chill. So pleased you like her.

    1/125 SUNKEN U-BOAT.

    Thank you Vince, this kind of modelling is great as I can just get on with it and not worry about finish.
  6. When my health goes through a bad faze modelling tends to take a back seat. However, I managed to get the U-99 model kit cheap and so another sunken u-boat was born. To me this is a nice size to work on and I do not have to worry about mistakes etc and just enjoy it. As some of you know the Revell kit is well...poor, loads of injector marks, flash, too thick railings and slightly warped sections (well on this kit there was) of course for what had in mind...this was not an issue. The model was washed and then cleaned up and assembled with damage added to buckled and bent hull to damaged railings. It was then coated in a undiluted coat of PVA and a very fine sand was added to give some texture. Once dry it painted in red oxide and then I added a pre-shade in satin black to the underside and lower hull to give a more dark appearance. Once all dry various greys and greens were airbrushed, a beige/coral colour added to topsides by sponge dabbing. A brass and aluminium base was then added. Si:)
  7. Hopefully Andy will get some piccies in the next week or so. Glad you like her, she isn't too big and is very light so handling her is easy...no fear of dropping her...fingers and everything else crossed.
  8. Ta Vince, wasn't even sure she would float never mind sail...sometimes it is a joy when everything goes right on a model
  9. Yep, that's the model! Once I read your comment the old penny dropped. Glad you like it.
  10. Thanks Andy, glad you like it.
  11. This is my semi-scale Aeronaut Diva cabin cruiser. Plank on frame, with metal accessories, painted lower hull, working nav-lights and fitted out for RC. She has been on the water a few times and runs really well.
  12. Thanks guys, I sail on a lake with my RC boat club so she may show her face, but she will have to go in when there is no wind and the big boys are not making washes and waves
  13. I have had this model a while and cannot remember the make or the ship but it is a kit. It has been converted to RC with brass prop shaft and prop, micro servo and speed controller. I have got rid of many models to make room for others but forgot about this, I then decided to have a goo look and see if she still floated and worked. Did a tank test (bath) and all was well, no leaks. I then changed an old 40Mhz receiver to a 2.4 receiver and powered her up...SHE MOVED AND STEERED! Needs ballast adjusting slightly, but here she is, my little RC fuel ship.

    1/16 HENG LONG GAZ.

    I have both the B1 American truck and the B24 Russian Gaz from the Heng Long truck series. Last week I decided to start on the Gaz. Total strip down, primed, latex added and then top coat, once dry scrapped the latex off to show patches and then re-weathered to tone down. Wood added to rear and benched added, other items added to outside, interior cab all painted and windows added, rear lights added. Original electrics ripped out and a servo added for the steering, rewired the drive motor and added a speed controller and receiver so she now works on proportional 2.4 without the all on or all off. Turned out rather well. https://preview.ibb.co/evicmx/P1013017.jpg https://preview.ibb.co/jwPTtc/P1013018.jpg https://preview.ibb.co/ipa1Dc/P1013019.jpg https://preview.ibb.co/d6AZYc/P1013021.jpg https://preview.ibb.co/gexEYc/P1013020.jpg https://preview.ibb.co/bZMKzH/P1013023.jpg https://preview.ibb.co/j4C3Rx/P1013025.jpg https://preview.ibb.co/eKUiRx/P1013027.jpg https://preview.ibb.co/nwMmeH/P1013028.jpg https://preview.ibb.co/bHSReH/P1013029.jpg Si:)

    1/16 P-IV

    Thanking you, a simple paint scheme but worked better than I thought and am pleased with look. Don't say that Vince...although when I took these pics there was ice on the ground, hence not loads of piccies...too cold
