  1. Thanks You could well be correct about the colour, I may try to search out some refferences, it wouldn't be that difficult to change it at this stage
  2. Hi all, so sorry, I've been so slack uploading progress on this one, I'm actually moving along with it quite well Here's some build photos And masking up for the base coat Paint is drying as I type so more photos to come soon Cheers, Andy
  3. I haven't been slacking, just not uploaded progress due to , well, stuff happening recently Anyway, here is where I am at the moment A light fading of buff Tamiya and decals added Details painted, pin wash and a bit of weathering with oil paints, followed by a couple of coats of Dullcote So, further weathering, mainly pigments and I should be done Cheers, Andy
  4. Not at all , I quite agree, though I can't see both sides at the same time so I'm OK with it
  5. Some really good textures on there. A lot of thought going into the detailing, a proper story taking shape
  6. Can't see anything wrong with your camo, looks great to me
  7. Right, I tried a bit of dot-to-dot painting and I think it's an improvement. Probably stick with this and get on with the weathering I'll take another look at it tomorrow and see if I still like it. On the plus side, it seems to bring out the zimmerit more
  8. Well hopefully this one won't be as problematic as my last two GBs, it's a Tamiya kit, what could possibly go wrong? If this kit has an Achilles heel I'll find it (see what I did?) Slightly late to the party but the build did start last Thursday, here are the box & contents A barrel and some aerials and some brass shells I started with the crew figures which look pretty good for kit ones, not sure if they'll be used on the completed model yet I also obtained a set of AFV Cub decals because the Tamiya ones aren't D-Day specific So, let Operation Overlord commence
  9. Been busy but progressing slightly Tried replicating the cammo shown on the Zvezda illustration sheet provided, not entirely convinced by it (looks like Mr Blobby to me) so need to give it some thought, strip and start again or modify what I have. I suppose I should try modifying it first
  10. Oh I do love a Typhoon, shame I'm so hopeless with aircraft Never mind, I'll enjoy watching yours come together instead
  11. A couple of quick photos, this is where I am at the moment. There probably wont be much progress this week as it's a 5 night-shift week and the D-Day GB starts soon so what little time I have will be fairly intensive but I do enjoy having a model or two at the build stage while I'm painting another and swap between them A bit of light shading The base coat So cammo next and then on to the weathering Cheers, Andy
  12. Hi, here's a catch-up with progress, photos were taken over the last few days Firstly the top goes on with the breech, barrel isn't fixed yet for ease of handling The rest of the zimmerit applied and Mr. surfacer on the cast areas to give it some texture This one shows gaps in the zimmerit This one shows the part that I made to replace the omitted one, also the sledge hammer and it's holder were molded as a solid rectangle so I tried to give it some shape Wierdly, lifting handles are supplied for the centre engine grill but the 2 side ones have solid molded blobs so they came off and new ones made with old brass p.e. frets The bottom photo shows the zimmerit gap on the other side After chipping away some of it I primed the model to see what the zimmerit looked like (If you stare really hard...) and fitted the last few bits, tow cables and some spare track links Another quick blow over with the primer today and I should be able to start on the paint this weekend Cheers, Andy
  13. Hi, can I join in please, another 1963 I'm afraid and I'd like to build the Takom FV432 APC if I can get hold of one. I always fancied having a go at the interior, it looks a very nice kit to build
