  1. Got one to build. What a shame all the photo's have gone due to photobucket
  2. That's a great build Rich.It would be good if Emhar were to release other similar kits,but must admit I will not be holding my breath .The Bedford 1 24th scale trucks were quite out of the ordinary from all of their other stuff . We live in hope never the less.
  3. Nice one. Love the little CV2s Built a couple myself Great stand. Fine work Thanks for sharing

    Paint Pens

    Anyone any advice on fine line paint pen brands? Thinking of buying some,but seems to be a wide choice of makes & types of paint. Any help would be appreciated
  5. That's a great build Pat Like the weathering,very well done.Did a part started Jag & know it can be a challenge Great work
  6. That's a great build of a good looking car. Love the original display too. Wonderful work. Thanks for sharing
  7. Thank you all for the kind comments. Like the tipper Pat W very much a unusual build. Just been down to Telford for IPMS show.Great weekend but seeing some of the wonderful stuff people produce, brings it home to you how far I have to go. I will never reach their level. Time is not on my side for one thing. That's my excuse & I'm sticking to it Ha Ha
  8. Agree my favorite is the scrapper tow truck ,I do also like the green LWB side tipper. The other 3 are Ok for when I built them, but now think trucks without a little weathering look strange. Saying that I have a American tow truck in my stash which I am hoping to extend & build out of the factory.
  9. Built about 4 years ago within 1st year after a 40 year absence from the hobby
  10. Hi JeroenS Like it. That's a real good brush paint job. Would not have the talent to try that. Been on lookout for kit (again) as a while ago I wrecked the one I had.(Glazing totally rubbished) Go on it happens to some of us.
  11. Thank you Roy Quite pricey as you say plus postage of course. Not desperate for one,so think I will take my chance. Seeing as Bussing was a re release they may do trailer soon Thanks for heads up anyway.
  12. Thank you Pete Glad you like it. Hoping I may be very lucky & pick up the Hanomag Trailer at Telford Not seen it on E bay at all so guess there is not much chance,but never the less a great day out.A long ride & a very tiring for me but great to see how good some modelers are..I like the dioramas some are works of art.
  13. Hi Roy Again thanks for info & kind words If it seems the triangle will come off ok will rectify, if not will have to live with it Good to know.& maybe someone building it in future will spot it.Admit I am quite pleased the way it turned out. One of my better ones I think On subject of Krupp are Evergreen 149 & 158 just strips & not shapes ? Thank you again.
  14. Hi JeroenS Thank you very much for kind comments. There is a pic In fact 2 with the engine on show if that is what you mean.Paints used were Revell my own mixed colors. I know they get a poor name for paints but they work for me, at times hard to spray but they do dry. Have used Mr Hobby, Tamiya both of which I found never seemed to get hard + a couple of others. Also I find Revell are more economical. Each to whatever works for them.Got to admit the main painting of a model is not one of my favorite bits.Like pre paint assembly & detail painting but don't think I am much good with a airbrush. Better with matt not so good with anything that needs a gloss finish.
  15. Completed tarpaulin Not great,but not to bad I think.Lifted rear load side, Managed to detach & lift steering wheel as far as it would go,looks better.Other bits completed & I think I can now call this one done.Can be displayed with or without tarpaulin .Enjoyed build. No real problems .From quite a big one my next project is a Morris Mini.Quite a change.
