  1. Thanks Gordon, It's a scheme from AFV club's instructions. Although they don't give the exact colours as such I would say it should be Khaki Green No3 (G3) and Dark Tarmac No4. Wayne
  2. Thank you Rob and Pete. The gun mount is pretty delicate and a few expletives may have been muttered when it was being attached. Wayne.
  3. Thank you John. I generally prefer a black background for most subjects as you say it makes it look more dramatic, however I think the white shows detail a little better and is probably better for getting critique. I have a custom made spray booth which doubles up for my photography area and I use vinyl back drops and some LED light panels.
  4. Thank you all very much. Weathering like this is quite a new experience for me especially with the multitude of products available these days, so it's nice to know I'm in the ballpark with it.
  5. No they didn't Darryl, the serial numbers broke up. If you look closely you can see it. I covered the worse bits with some mud. The yellow square was painted on.
  6. This is AFV Club's Valentine Mk.I. It's one of a number of models that I manged to complete over the last 18 months or so but have just got around to photographing. I enjoyed this build nothing was really added to what came in the kit apart from AFV Clubs workable tracks. Painted with MRP paints and weathered with Mig pigments.
  7. Thank you all very much for your kind words. I don't belong to any modelling clubs and therefore nobody ever really sees my models so it's lovely to get some feed back.
  8. This is Eduard's Nieuport XI depicted as one of French ace Jean Navarre's mounts. Unfortunately this wasn't an option provided by Eduard hence the missing 6 from the serial number. The build itself was fine but on the painting side I found applying the edging tapes a bit tedious and feel I could have made a better job of them.
  9. Thank you John. I based the model on some photos in the Tankograd book on the Conqueror. It was operated by the 3rd King's Own Hussars in Northern Germany around 1955-6. The Bouncer 3A markings are not provided by Amusing Hobby. I made them up from the spares box but they are over scale.
  10. Thank you! I used MRP-341 Deep Bronze Green No.24.
  11. Thanks Francis, It took me a little while to work out how these forums work. I do like British Armour. I'm working my way through building a representation of every type of tank they used. The Takom Chieftain is in the pending pile. You have made a lovely job of yours. How did you find the kit? Wayne
  12. I changed my photo hosting to Imgur, hopefully the photos are visible now. Wayne
  13. I did wonder. I was using onedrive. I will try and sort it out tonight. Thanks
  14. Hi all, I've been a member for a little while but this is my first attempt at posting any of my work. This is the Amusing Hobby 1/35 Conqueror MkI. I actually built it last year but have just got around to photographing some of my models. The build was pretty straight forward apart from the inner skirts which were warped in my kit. These were replaced with plastic card. It was painted with MRP paints and weathered with MIG pigments.
