    Academy 1/35 Jagdpanzer Hetzer 'Ambush' Camo

    Although the figure is superb. For me, the rust to the armour was stand out! Great job!

    Thanks Roger! The struggle I have right now is spending the funds on more kits or modelling supplies/paints etc. Will definitely get it painted up as soon as possible.

    The tank is complete! Honestly over the moon with this and thanks to everyone who's joined in so far with my first build. Literally took me back to being a kid completing it, really happy with the look of it once complete. Tamiya did not disappoint. Tracks have currently been left off as I've decided I'm going to attempt to paint it at some point soon (whilst lining up my next couple of projects, I see how you guys build up stash's) and will be contemplating turning the vehicle and accompanying soldiers into a diorama. I hope you folks don't mind me popping the figures in here when constructed and not over in the figure section. I want to keep the project together. Cheers, Steven

    Sherman Mark V with Tulip Rockets

    Jumping in on this mid way through, very interesting idea and the model looks great so far. Look forward to seeing the rest of it come together. Cheers, Steve

    Cheers guys, I will give that a go. Think I made a bit of a mess around the chap poking out of the hatch. Particularly around his ears. Will give that a go with the rest of the troops soon.

    Next out of the stash - a Lynx AH-7

    The detail inside that cockpit genuinely blew me away. Bravo.

    Thanks Roger! Really happy with this, should get the ball rolling properly tomorrow as I have quite a chunk of free time. A question for all you model folks out there, quite a bit of mould lines on the figures that come with this kit and I've literally got one poxy file. Any tips for cleaning bits of flash off? I need to invest in some half decent tools...

    We have a turret ladies and gents. With half of a commander who I will mount in the open hatch when the rest of the model is constructed! Smaller wheels fitted to the main hull also. Cheers guys, Steven

    Safe to say, progress has been more slow than steady. But at least I know all parts are cleaned up appropriately etc. Lower wheels are now on both sides. Off out to the shops with the other half, so might end up coming home with a kit to add to the stash.

    Yours looks superb! I hope my finished product is half as good. Will be looking to add some interior finishes to some at some point. Thank you for sharing and for the inspiration!

    Hello all.

    Oooo, I'd have to go White Sox myself, actually got a little baseball card collection on the go! Funny for someone residing the other-side of the pond! And what are the chances of that! Brilliant! (TRAITORS!) John, thanks for the welcome! I'll stick to MMI, I think it was actually for sale in the Hobbycraft I picked up my first kit from, so possibly another kit and a magazine the next time I pop in.

    I actually noticed that, there is a template etched into the floor of the hull showing where the battery pack should go for the motorisation. I will get them filled in when I'm a bit further along in the build. Appreciate you coming on board! Hopefully have some progress for you soon! It's a really nice kit, much better than the airfix starter sets I got bought for Christmas as stocking fillers. Thanks for the welcome and thanks for joining!

    Hello all.

    Paul, laziness on my part for not attempting to google. Apologies! I've actually held a copy of M.M.I recently so will probably delve in, I'll try and get down to my local WH Smiths soon and grab the latest of each. Thanks for the warm welcome! Dennis, thanks for the welcome! Cubs or White Sox? Just started my first thread if you want a nosey! I will check out Hannants today! Thankyou for the suggestion!
  14. Hello all, Welcome to my first modelling thread! Picked up this Tamiya kit for £10 and the knife for a quid to start my descent back into modelling. Opened up we have And managed to get a little start on it at the time Thanks for looking, nice to be back in the hobby and I hope to make more progress soon! Cheers, Steven

    Hello all.

    Good morning everyone, I could argue I'm a life long modeller. It all started with my Grandad and his "stash" when I was growing up. The reality is, I haven't picked up a model kit properly for years, (did manage to land a couple of airfixes last Christmas) however, I grabbed a Tamiya 1/35 kit after being dragged round hobby craft by my other half and I'm back in. I love it! Wanted to get involved with a community so I can learn about what's out there and I would prefer to support independent model shops than a company like Hobbycraft (I can settle for that if needs must, one is quite close). I'm based in Manchester, England. So any recommendations on local shops would be much appreciated! I would also like some hobby magazine recommendations if anyone minds? I did buy a couple of issues of Military Modelling and was involved on their message boards at one point, but sadly I have learnt that ceases to publish. Look forward to sharing my 1/35 build with you all and see all your projects! Cheers, Steven
