    Takoms Panther

    Well, I have started on my 2nd Takom Panther, making this the 5th Panther I have completed so far... But I am looking for a full crew for the Panther, including the gunner, loader, driver, radio operator, and finally the commander. I have never done any type of figure sculpting or modifications to figures so preferably something that's a kit. Thanks Mark

    1/35 Nashorn

    So I have decided to pull out Tamiya's Nashorn out of my stash for the first time since Christmas of last year... how appropriate. But I have decided to order some PE for it (all PE available), along with a metal barrel and tracks. I have decided to do a diorama for this model, and I was looking at some German soldiers that will match the Battle of Kursk scene I'm thinking about doing. So this will be a project that'll last my entire Christmas break. Pictures will be uploaded when I receive the aftermarket parts and figures. Along with some ideas for the dio. I plan on making. Marry Christmas, Mark

    Trumpeter 1/16 King Tiger -Finished

    Thank you all for your comments! I will take a look at this forum, I am apart of a 1/16 Panther build group on Facebook that has some really impressive work in there, far better than what I have done wih the KT. Mark If you plan on getting a 1/16 KT, please note that the box is about 2X larger than the actual model, so you'll have to find room for the giant model and its giant box. (Made quite a difficult maze for me when I had to leave my chair to do something.) Good luck if you do decide on getting it, its one project you'll never forget.

    Thanks, but I plan on being even more meticulous with the 1/16 Panther than that of my KT Mark

    Thank you Chris. You are correct in your guess. Its nice to have a open workspace aswell. Mark.
  8. You all have probably seen my from in WIP's section but heres the 'final' update on the KT, I have gotten the 1/16 Panther a couple weeks ago so I already have my work cut out for me. This has taken over a year and a half to build and complete, about 30-35% is aftermarket purchases or scratchbuilding that I based off the book Super King by David Parker. Hope you all enjoy(also please note that some small things are not pictured, as they're currently MIA). https://www.flickr.com/photos/140207497@N02/46138441912/in/datetaken/

    Trumpeter King Tiger Porsche Turret

    Looks good as per usual, do you have any room left for all of those 1/16 models? How was the assembly of the Porsche Turret? Mark

    Trumpeter King Tiger

    I got some of the PE parts off of eBay, again... but for the res I either 3d printed, or bought off of AFV's website(the same on that I got Super King from) Mark

    Trumpeter King Tiger

    I based most of not all of my extra detail off of the book Super King by David Parker, its a fantastic resource for the kit since it documents David's build progress of his own 1/16 KT. I got the book off of AFV's Website for 90$ USD. Mark

    Trumpeter King Tiger

    I got it off of eBay, I know that some people... have had troubles with eBay but so far I haven't. This ran me about 250$ USD with shipping. Mark

    Trumpeter King Tiger

    Hello to anyone who looks at this post, I have been meaning to do this for a while, but I just got caught up in school, work, and my re-enactment stuff so I haven't remembered to upload the 'final' set of pictures for the KT. I am pretty much done with it, but I'm currently bouncing between three other kits at the moment so my workbench is covered in paints, glues, and paint brushes. Also please note that the radio rack, mg casing collection tube, and the fire extinguisher on the rear deck are not pictured as those parts are 'lost' at the moment. I know none of them were thrown out, they're just misplaced. Anyways enough of my rambling here's the final pictures of The Beast.

    50 Years of progress Soviet/Russian armour

    The family was impressed with it and shocked at how long it took for me to complete it. (But that's the fun part, right?) I know you have had bad experiences with eBay, but I have yet to have a bad experience or a bad seller(Knock on wood). eBay is where I got my KT and the Panther off of and got them within a week of ordering. Not sure of the shipping costs for the US to Canada, but it cost around 30$ to ship a large package from FL to my hometown. Sounds like a great deal for those 2 SSD's I sadly couldn't score anything more than a couple parts for my PC. Can't imagine what its like up in Canada for it to be that cold, down here where I'm at, we just went from about 50F(10C) to about 20F(-6C) in a day so everyone is in 'shock' since rain turned to snow in about an hour. So it makes for a fun time in school, where heating is dependant on the classroom or stairwell. Mark.

    50 Years of progress Soviet/Russian armour

    I have the pictures on my phone, just have to upload them to Flickr, and hopefully not go over that 1000 picture limit. I'll probably post them in my KT post since I don't want to start a new form for a tank I don't plan on building for a couple more months. And I did manage to get the Beast done before Thanksgiving, so I was able to show it off to the family that came to town. How was your Thanksgiving? Mark
