  1. I just spent best part of £200 with Fruil for various track sets...........i know how you feel if she finds out i will be found under the patio
  2. Got some really nice pics of KiKi ............just make sure you don't do her paint as grua and dunkelgelb....those in the know have since proved that she was painted in a three colour paint job............ should be a lot of fun doing her though....will have a dig through my Tiger folder might take a while though mate as i now have 750 + pics in there at present
  3. Looking at your fine work you can start to understand why it has been so hard to tell whether these tanks had camo or not........very subtle isn't it......great looking chipping by the way Darryl can you do me a flavour.....can you measure centre to centre the gap between the holes at the top of the commander's cupola as the Tamiya kits don't have this detail......thanks bud
  4. Glad your ok mate ...was watching the news as that storm was rolling through and said to the wife that i hoped you and yours were ok...........handy tips about the sandbags keeping out inlaws ...have just ordered a load in the hopes it keeps my troublesome Daleks out also....... one can dream eh
  5. You should receive a public service award ...for your one man effort to keep all model shops alive in England Wales and Scotland during this time of lockdown............only a shame you couldn't have done what Darryl has and done the same service for all pubs ....................speaking of which ....has anybody heard from Darryl lately ...bit worried for our fella as all that stormin and flooding goin on recently i know he has to pull out the sandbags every now and then.......................... @Jasper dog hope your ok bud
  6. I thought that might be the case ...still a high precision needed ...used masking fluid a lot when i used to do 1/8th scale buggy racing back in the day ...only way to get the control needed to get the inside of the shells accurate....how did it do with acrylic always wanted to go back to liquid mask (and would have if using enamel) but was a little worried about it tearing the acrylic of....and how did it react around things like the grills.
  7. Some stunning precision masking there mate really stunning........ can't wait to see this when it's done.....a true five star build and looks like the paint is going down the same route
  8. Only the first nine or so Tigers as far as i can tell used mirror tracks .....the slightly later initials that were delivered to Africa were early tracks IE they were not handed and had no chevron pattern on the shoe and the late were again not handed and did have the chevron pattern...be interested in whether you can burnish those as they don't look like white metal...may have to undercoat those and paint.......look like they went together well though.
  9. I have used dressmakers pins in the past and very effective they are to ....just do not use your best side cutters to clip them to size as there hardened steel and will totally butcher the cutting edges of your nippers...use a set of automotive pliers or a dremel cutting disk to zip through them in seconds
  10. Hey Zack was havin a dig through my Tiger file on the pooter and found these ................... notice the shell ricochet of the turret side and the way its bent the smoke discharger bracket and snapped the weld seam
  11. Glad you posted this mate ...was gonna pre order one ....might hang on a while Edit ...just been on the Faceplant page and David is not happy with it is he........ and rightly so whomever built that must have done it with a spoon and a kitchen knife......and as for all that garbage thrown on the engine deck ......well..........
  12. As if it needs saying ....but very nice Andy well done and rather well executed in every aspect.
  13. Yeah has been chilly lately mate.....hard to work those little bits wearing mittens and detail painting goes right out the window when your teeth are chattering.
  14. Understandable mate ....home and family first...... best wishes to ya mate hope muma nature doesnt give you too much to worry about.
  15. Does look nice ...unfortunately i have invested my money in Tamiya now and an awful lot of brass ......... so i will be stickin with those ....you can only have so many Tigers and i have five waiting
