    Revell Jaguar XK SS 1/24

    The exhaust pipes will be replaced by a metal solution, and I have drilled holes into the exhaust cover.

    Revell Jaguar XK SS 1/24

    Couldn't wait that long and started to put together some parts like engine and suspension. I removed the chrome, which will be replaced by ALCLAD colors, with an ordinary oven cleaner spray. The kit seems to be quite detailed, but some more details will be added. I started with the rivets on the body. Those were taken from laser cut accessories of my cardboard modeling. Tom
  4. After many builds of cardboard models I felt a real desire to walk downstairs into the cellar and open one those plastic kit boxes hidden in a corner shelf. Well, once opened my desire became strong enough, to start a build. I have chosen one of my favorite classic cars, a Jaguar XK SS, manufactured in scale 1/24 by Revell. Tom

    Moskvitch - 401, ICM, 1/35

    This one looks great as well as the base. Thomas
  6. Thanks to all for your really nice comments and likes. @ Steve: For the sea-scape I painted a sheet of transparent paper with different acrylic colours (blue, green, brown and a bit of white). The sheet was glued onto a piece of waste wood. The surface is an ordinary "sea foil", which I bought at a model train store. Fast and easy solution.
  7. Thank you for kind comment. CFP is a one-man business owned by Horst Mürell. I am not familiar with the terms and conditions for delivery outside of Germany. Just contact him by email and he will surely reply and send an offer. To try out his models you can download an Admiralty 61,5 ft. MFV for free on his site. Print, cut and glue... Thomas
  8. Hi, I have finished a small paper model of WW II Orkney steamer "SS Earl Sigurd" published by german publisher CFP (Coastal Forces in Paper Kind regards Thomas
  9. Nice to see you all on board. @ Michael: Although I'm not going to paint it, it won't be a clean paper model. There are lots of templates for the use of wire, some metal will join the paper model. And - I will build the waterline version. Tom
  10. I will stay tuned in, really interesting. Looking forward to your way of realization. Tom
  11. Thanks a lot. The card is finn card, 1 mm thick. It is from an additional, model-specific laser cut set, which I bought together with a brass gun barrel set. The model itself has only templates to glue to 1-mm-card on your own. I wanted to save my fingers from cutting that card, so I decided to buy the laser cut parts. Tom
  12. Hi at all, I have noticed the start of some Dreadnought builds during the last days. Well, I don't want to stand back and get started with a report, too. This model is released by polish publisher "Maly Modelarz". It is rather detailed and - hopefully - will bring a lot of fun. First of all, the card frame of the hull had to be mounted and glued. I have added decks and parts of the superstructure. Did not glue them yet, since I will have some work on the deck's surfaces. The width of the planks and their colour isn't that satisfying. I am going to replace them with newly drawn "wood". Kind regards Tom
