  1. This is my take on Zvezda’s T34/76. I was looking into aftermarket parts. A turret and tracks but since this model retails around 20 quid I just built it straight from the box. An for 20 quid I can’t complain. Never built anything from Zvezda but after this kit I’d happily buy one of their newer releases. The model was painted with Mission Models paint. Weathered with the usual oils and pigments. Didn’t want to weather it to much. So very little chipping on this one. Wanted to give the impression it’s fairly new out the factory but seen the elements a bit. The figures are from Stalingrad miniatures. I will get round to a small base for it in the near future when I get time.
  2. The D-Day centre is worth a visit if your visiting Dorset. Took my 7 year old with me. Lots to see and the museum is very hands on. The boy loved it.
  3. Thanks everyone for getting back to me on this. Don’t have much of a clue on Russian Armour. That’s a great help and learned something too.
  4. Looking at building Zvezda T34/76. Apparently it’s a good kit out the box. Missing the cast detail on the turret. So was thinking of just replacing the turret for a after market one. I just want to check with someone who knows about this stuff if the resin turret im looking at getting is the right one. An what’s the crack with grab handles. The kit has grab handles but the resin turret doesn't. Can anyone help?
  5. Here is some pictures of my latest build. Academy Panther G. Last production. Great kit out the box. Wasn’t to happy with the tracks that came with the kit so got some bronco tracks. Found the detail much better on them. Figures are from Alpine. No drama with the kit. Went together great and was enjoyable painting it up. Any comments or Criticism is always welcome. Always trying to improve with every build.
  6. Hopefully now the Election is done the Gov will make a announcement on this soon. The RBSL version looks and sounds a good upgrade. Fingers crossed.
  7. Rather be in a Boxer than a 432 any day of the week. Long over due getting Platforms like this for the British Army. Seeing how it’s a off the shelf buy shouldn’t take too long getting it into service with the Field Army. Unlike some other projects.
  8. Managed to get the base and the figures done. So calling this one finished. Here is some pics of the finished vignette. Thanks for looking.

  10. Hi everyone, This is my Tamiya 1/35 Brummbar. Nice easy build with some nice detail. Used aftermarket metal tracks. Painted with Mission Models paint. Weathered with a range of different Oils from 502 and products from Mig and AK. Gonna do a small base for it with a couple of figures from Evolution and Stalingrad miniatures. Just thought I post the vehicle seeing how it’s finished for the moment. Thanks for looking.
  11. https://www.lexpev.nl/grenades/europe/germany/nebelkerze3939b.html Found this. Don’t know if that’s any help to you?
  12. Yeah kits just arrived this afternoon. 99 on the rubber band set. So will use that as a gauge an see how it looks.
  13. Don’t suppose anyone knows how many track links a late war Brummbar would have on each side? Building the Tamiya kit next and using after market tracks. I got some late war Panzer iv metal ones in my stash. Was thinking of using those ones?
  14. Thanks Badder for the kind comments. Yeah I will look at sorting the antenna out. If the film Fury is anything to go by they was larger than a 2m whip on the real things. As for the figure I need to peg his other foot in. Thanks again.
  15. This is my attempt at Tamiya’s 1/35 scale Easy Eight Sherman. It was primed and painted with Vallejo paints. Oils, Enamels and pigments from Mig, Ak, and 501 was used for the washes and weathering effects. Also tried life colour liquid pigments for rain and dust. The decals are a set from Star decals and the figure is from Alpine. No drama with the build. A great Tamiya kit only the rubber tracks was my only negative. It’s a fairly live track anyway but still needed some glue and sponge to get it to lay on the upper return rollers. Thanks for looking.
