  1. Ha ha APA whilst you’re there would you pick me up some mascara please? The usual waterproof one. As you know, there can be a lot of crying involved in modelling
  2. Strangely enough I’ve already bought them. Months ago??
  3. More than likely that MiniArt will release a 1/35 version as they’ve done the bus and lorry. That is If they haven’t already and I missed it?
  4. Ooo, more excited now! (It doesn’t take much, does it?)
  5. Wow Mike thank you so so much for your input. I have been searching for info for some weeks and felt like a dog chasing it’s tail... I will mail you. Thanks again for your very kind reply. I will mail you tout suite. cheers Andrew
  6. Hi everyone. As you may know, I normally restrict my model building to WWI. But, with a sense of nostalgia, I am tackling a Sherman M4A1 which was the tank my late father served in. He was in the Middle East, trailing around northern Iraq (due to some wobbly intel that panzers were reported to be mustering for a flanking attack.. which proved wrong) and then into Egypt. From that area, they were transported to Italy. He was in 2RTR which I believe was part of the 7th armoured division ( feel free to correct me if I’m wrong!) where he and his crew got through the Gothic Line, only to drop a tr
  7. I eventually solved the problem - or rather Michel at Black Lion Decals did - he made me up a set! Well two actually, in case I had a little accident. Well done to him; they look fantastic!! cheers Andrew
  8. Hi Keith. Also been building the lorry; I chose the 3rd variant namely Lancashire Lass; but can you or anyone else tell me what the capital B stands for on the cab side? I’ve looked and looked but cannot find an answer... tia! cheers Andrew
  9. Hi guys yes thanks, I’ve tried Jadar but they’re sold out of the set I need cheers Andrew
  10. As it turned out, Black Lion had the right package but the wrong decals were inside. Not BL’s fault, rather NPD’s packing error. so if anyone has a set they don’t want or know someone who may do then please pass it on to me thank you ! cheers Andrew
  11. Hi ganevender are you addressing me? If so, then l relied on photos of the original vehicle and then did what l thought looked ok on the interior. As a kerbside model, mine came out ok. But wouldn’t stand up to historical fact! Cheers Andrew
  12. like so many others have said, I’m really and truly enjoying this thread. Your daughter has real talent, and the intimate way you write the thread makes us all feel like we’re there lending a hand ...how big is the shed? Would we all fit in? Thanks so much for sharing this heart warming and ongoing story with all us model nutters. I’m also a bit jealous as none of my children had any interest at all in modelling! Cheers Andrew
  13. Excellence seems to be your standard. I’m running out of superlatives , so I’ll just say brilliant job! cheers Andrew
  14. That’s fantastic too, Andrew oh crap italics. Too lazy to change it now l build everything from WWI but I’m very taken with this little chap. Really nice, well done ! cheers Andrew
  15. Andrew S. Hello that’s a superb job done there! I love the chosen colour scheme, and l will shamelessly copy it! Love it love it love it!! Cheers Andrew
  16. Hi John yes me too... but maybe one may come soon in 1/35? Now where was that box art for a railway wagon, with an Austin AC on the previous wagon? Hmm. cheers Andrew
  17. Looks great so what’s next as they all are saying cheers Andrew
  18. Hi Andy That's fantastic as always! Loving it's 'look'. Cheers Andrew
  19. Your model is possible to sum up in one word: PERFECT! well done, I love it Cheers Andrew
  20. Good afternoon to you what a great little model. I scratch built one in 1/35 scale, the thread is around somewhere; I absolutely love the nutty vehicles that were produced around this time and concentrate on them as model projects. I recently finished (I think they're finished, when do we really know?) 3 more scratch builds. One of a Pierce-Arrow armoured lorry with anti-aircraft gun, a chain driven Wolseley-Peerless armoured truck also with AA armament, and lastly another Pierce-Arrow armoured truck with revolving turret housing a sort of 3 or 6 pounder gun. I will post them in R
  21. Nice. Got the bus for Christmas, this lorry will certainly be added!
  22. Duh, just realised I’ve been looking at the wrong batch number. They do have them! Thanks again for pushing me in the right direction. Cheers and happy new year.
  23. Thanks very much. I’ve tried Black Lion, they don’t have any as far as l can see. I’ll try the other company you mentioned. Thanks again for your time. cheers Andrew
