  1. Hi Darryl, Today I have some time and desire to go through the forum, and from what I see, your kit works very well, I love the modulation you have achieved, and the rough appearance of the anti-slip. Cheers and TC. Francis.
  2. Hi Joseba, I am afraid to say that I love your "two panthers", the one that is already finished, is charming, what is it, a Norwegian forest or a Maine Coon?, or simply something more "normal" ... I would love to have one like that, well apart from the models, I also adore cats. Don't have problems with English, I don't speak it very well either, and with the Google translator, it's enough to be able to share our work. As a colleague said, your M26 looks great, when you have the desire and time, you can make a topic, in the RTI section, to see it in detail. I have something similar posted on the RTI, an M47, which was one of the first ones I made when I returned to the hobby, and I tried to make it look more like the M26 than the M47, because it had three different muzzle brakes in the kit, and I chose the most "retro". If you are interested in seeing it, it is still published in the RTI section. Cheers and take care. Francis.
  3. Hi Phil, sounds really good. I love this model, about a couple of years ago or so I did it, and to be one of the first to attack in my hobby, I managed to like how it turned out and I still have it in the showcase. I would love to do something similar to what you mention, a base and above all add some figures, but my ability for figures is very little, so I keep procrastinating ... lol. If it helps your documentation, my M48 is still posted in the WIP and RTI sections. Cheers and TC Francis.
  4. Hi, I imagine you mean the saggy of the tracks, when they are indi-links, it can be molded to your liking, not without difficulty, but when they are in one piece, you have to do a trick to make it "appear". Although I have noticed that the Honey had the side skirt, which almost hides the top of the tracks, so the saggy can be almost invisible. I myself was thinking of doing some saggy in mine, because in boxart, the model appeared like this, but apart from the extra work to do it, I have not seen any American Stuart with saggy on the tracks, although I may be wrong, I decided to make them tense . Cheers and TC Francis.
  5. Hi Maklo, I have just finished an M3, but in the U.S. version, although it is from Italeri, I think it is an Academy or Airfix rebox, it even includes the pieces to make a British Honey. I tried to use the indi-link tracks, but they were too difficult for me, so I opted for the vinyl ones. IMHO I think the result was more than good, if you want, you can see how it turned out in the RTI section, and assess what you like best about the tracks. Cheers and TC Francis.
  6. Hi R. Many thanks for your kind words and like, i'm glad you like it. It is always a pleasure to be able to share something with others, and receive feedback, good or bad (better good, of course ... lol), because it encourages us to continue building and then sharing the result. You are more than kind, as a mere mortal that I am, I aspire to be something more, for the moment I am in the process ... lol There is a lot of great modeling everywhere, they are very hard to reach ... I'm on it ... lol I really want to do something else, but with this hot weather (the heat is here ... lol), and everything about the CV-19, added to personal circumstances, means that if I think twice, I don't dare with a new kit, for fear of ruining it. Cheers and TC Francis.
  7. Hi Steve, good job with the Scout, I really like the equipment and the figure looks very good with its marks on the clothes. A simple but effective vignette that brings life to the model. Cheers and TC Francis.
  8. Hi Nev, Many thanks for your like and kind words, i'm glad you like it. I don't always use the leaves, and I try not to overdo it. Cheers and TC Francis.
  9. Hi Badder, I see that you have been very busy with your building, and the result looks very good, as they say above, it looks real, someone will be able to do it better and faster, but before running you have to learn to walk, and you are well ahead in the learning process..lol. I really like the "Fairy" trick (around here we also have that ... lol). Maybe a little bit of appropriate color pigments, do the job, because it would also be "rough", like real lichen. The tiles, often work, similar to some indi-links tracks, but they have been quite good, nobody would say that they are "pieces of paper". I really like how it is staying in the building. I hope to see more progress later. Cheer and TC Francis.
  10. Hi Ernst, Many thanks for your like and kind words, i'm glad you like it. I really wanted to do something, and this, although with a fairly decent interior, is a small kit, with a good fit and practically OOB, anyway doing calculations, I think it took me about a month to have it finished, I'm definitely not "the fastest south of the Mississippi ...", lol. Cheers and TC
  11. Hi R. Many thanks for your like and kind words, i'm glad you lik it. That was the idea, to show a used vehicle and in the final stages of the war. Cheers and TC Francis
  12. Hi R. many thanks for your like and kid words, i'm glad you like it. I have to do more SPG, there are very nice models too. Cheers and TC Francis.
  13. Hi Wayne, many thanks for your kind comments, 'm glad you like it. I think yes, it is a fairly simple kit to build, any skillful modeler can make the most of the model. I would really like to see your Honey. Cheers and TC Francis.
  14. Hi DAG058, Many thanks for your kind comment, i'm glad you like it. Cheers and TC Francis.
  15. Hi Pete, many thanks for your kind words, i'm glad you like it, after all, it doesn't look too much, once finished, I will really like to see how yours looks. Cheers and TC Francis.
