    Well, I do like making models...

  1. I had an attack of motivation so... 20210403_212712_Film2 by OutcastJoel, on Flickr I painted as many of the markings as I could and I was really happy with how well the MAX on the leading edge came out! painted figures 2mm tall!!! The rest was pretty simple, the serial number is definitely wrong but I just want to get this off the bench so will live with it for now. 20210404_225754_Film2 by OutcastJoel, on Flickr
  2. @lifeline that is seriously impressive! My only criticism is that we need a bigger photo of that beautiful tiger striped Seaking!
  3. You have done a cracking job of the rest of it though. It is worth trying microsol and microset rather than decalfix. I have never managed to make decal fix actually work.
  4. You might be please to know they have a few 1/350 jobs slated for release in the next year or so.
  5. From what I remember the Rheinmetal bid included a 120mm smoothbore gun so it should be able to use NATO standard ammunition. Beyond that the press release suggested it was mostly control and sensor upgrades which are important for the blokes using them but not especially exciting for the rest of us. This is the only thing I could find: https://www.edrmagazine.eu/rbsl-unveils-comprehensive-challenger-2-modernisation
  6. Well I am calling this done for now. 20210307_222311_Film2 by OutcastJoel, on Flickr 20210307_222255_Film2 by OutcastJoel, on Flickr 20210307_222329_Film2 by OutcastJoel, on Flickr
  7. I am loving this build, great work. As a shermanaholic you might enjoy this, it's a radio play from RTE about a man building a model sherman (it is oddly compelling). https://www.rte.ie/drama/radio/plays/2015/0213/680068-small-plastic-wars-by-pat-mcgrath/
  8. I started rethinking the dio before realising I did actually mean the tent would be on the right of the tank but keep referring to it as being on the left because it is on the left hand side of the photo... Doh! @Bish & @Widow 65 thank you for that guys, really interesting bits of info I had never even thought of. Tent poles are now in the ground on the right of the vehicle 20210306_222953_Film2 by OutcastJoel, on Flickr
  9. @Keif those are seriously cool, I absolutely love the SR71. Also hello from across the border in Notts.
  10. Eyup fella (from North West Notts for my sins!) I do (did before the pandemic) come down to Derby (actually Risley) for 4mm rail modelling purposes with the East Midlands Area Group of the Scalefour society. I am also big fan of the Gentleman's Scale so will be interested to see your builds.
  11. I managed to flick one of the headlamps off with a clamp and lost it to the carpet monster. The headlamps guards were quite chunky out of the kit so I wasn't too bothered and drew up some new ones. whilst looking at reference photos I realised I had missed a bit of additional armour above the driver. received_307513937462821 by OutcastJoel, on Flickr I blended them in and also manged to do a little exhaust staining. received_861071584749562 by OutcastJoel, on Flickr
  12. Dude! You said you build slowly but this is moving at one heck of a pace for the work going into it! That interior is looking awesome!
  13. Thank you! I have started to do the detail painting of tools etc. I have tried a bit of googling but couldn't find out if the spade balde would be painted or bare stainless steel. I like the idea of having a green painted low alloy steel spade where the end of the blade has had the paint worn away and has started to rust so will have a crack at that.
  14. Well I lost motivation for a bit but I have finally got back on it. I have reconstructed a fairleads and some other details that got destroyed in the sanding and also finished drawing up improved 6inch Mk 23 turrets. Edinburgh Turret by OutcastJoel, on Flickr
  15. That did cross my mind! I decided I can't justify adding more stuff to my stash though (and this way is more fun)! Now the weather in the UK has warmed up I got some colour on the beast. 20210215_215711_Film2 by OutcastJoel, on Flickr
