    Where's OzH?

    He’s alive and well, made contact tonight chaps

    Where's OzH?

    I'll have to be careful here … Late 40's early 50's I would guess, we served around the same time so as an approximate guess only.

    Where's OzH?

    Not sure, he did the 1/48 Wessex full resin kit that Ian put out a few years ago under the Heritage label and the 1/48 Apache British Army detail set, OzH is a talented chap indeed, shame he's not around anymore.

    Where's OzH?

    Ian is indeed K4C but he isn't OzH fella. Ian served in the RAF and OzH served in the Army, OzH and I used to chat quite regular a few years back as we both served in the same Corps but he has gone dark, I PM'd him a year or so ago but got no response.

    Where's OzH?

    I think you might getting confused , OzH isn’t kits for cash, that will be Ian as mentioned,but I know OzH has done some masters for Ian in the past. OzH hasn’t been seen for a while on the forums so I hope he’s okay.
  6. Cheers chaps, Another small update, I've added the weld around the troop hatch, Archer decals again. I've also added a few more bits of PE around the exterior. More later Dan
  7. Stunning work again Rob, some stunning paint effects and good all round wholesome modelling
  8. Yup ... Nailed it beefy nice work bud, lovely seascape indeed.
  9. That's looking rather good Roger, The AA kits do take a bit more thought but the results are always worth it
  10. Very slow progress I'm afraid chaps, Adding the troop compartment hand holds to the inside of the roof I've also scratched up the second interior light that will get fitted later. Regards Dan
  11. I use Tamiya acrylics for 70 % of my projects and have never had an issue with them, never had to use the retarder with an airbrush but I do use Mr Hobby rapid or self levelling thinners rather than the Tamiya own thinners. I found the retarder great for when you need to brush paint Tamiya acrylics but never needed it for airbrushing. I use an Iwata TR1 0.3 needle for most of my airbrush work, you shouldn’t have an issue with Tamiya’s own thinners btw. I’ve moved onto the the new Tamiya lacquer paints recently and they are one of the best I’ve used, just to throw that into the mix HTH Dan
  12. Just be careful with those tracks Roger, I would look at the Bronco double padded tracks rather than using the AA resin link and length bud, they are not the easiest to fit. A hairdryer or boiling water is a must to get them to conform properly if you have to use them. Dan
  13. Nice one Roger, I'll have to hang around for this one, it's also in my stash Nice haul of AM as well buddy
  14. Cheers chaps, I tested the Hataka lacquer paints last night and happy to report back they are very good, I only sprayed the cupola with green and it goes down well. I then tested a few more colours on some scrap plastic and I can get quite tight demarcation so I’m happy. Regards Dan
  15. I would safely say that you nailed it Rob You should build more AFV's buddy because that's lovely
