  1. An excellent all round finish.
  2. Top job. I love the truck, the cargo and the diorama. I like those 'shady' photos too.
  3. Some good progress considering you've been unwell.
  4. Love the colour. I'll follow this if it's ok, as I'm planning to start this kit soon and it will be my first attempt at a car. Hopefully I'll be able pick up some tips.
  5. Tamiya 32407 1/35 scale LRDG command car I'm not sure if I'm brave or foolish posting this after Carius' recent excellent example of this model, but this is my take on this classic Tamiya kit. I originally intended to go for a very worn and battered look, but I was reading a book about the LRDG while making the model and from the text and images it appears the vehicles didn't suffer too much damage, so I've gone for a more subtle approach. They seemed to get through a few of them, but it was maybe more due to mechanical issues caused by the harsh desert conditions that took there toll. I took some artistic licence with the stowage colours to create a bit of variety, and I've also seen the recent post questioning the use of large oil drums. It would appear they may not have carried them, but mine was already glued in place so, for better or worse, it stays!
  6. Thanks Nigel, and a fair comment about the gun. I made that about two years ago, and nowadays I usually paint such things black with some silver to create wear and scratches. You can just about make it out on the Harley gun.
  7. Thanks. I used acrylics. A tan colour base coat then dry brushed a darker shade, building it up to create some colour variation, and finished it by dry brushing a dark brown on the edges and a few other patches. I have also used a mix of both since to create a darker leather - mid brown acrylic, then dry brushed burnt and raw umber.
  8. Here you go, I've dusted them off a bit and taken some pics. I made these two a couple of years ago when I was less experienced and it shows a bit. The weathering is perhaps a bit heavy handed and the decals on the BMW are not great, but I was happy with them at the time considering the level I was at. I've also included an image with a 1/35 scale jeep next to the Triumph to give an idea of the size.
  9. Thank you. The leather was an area I tried to improve on from previous efforts, to try and get some depth and variety of colour and make it look more realistic, so it's encouraging to get a comment like that.
  10. Italeri 7401 1/9 scale Harley Davidson WLA 750 This is my 1/9 scale Harley that I finished during the Christmas holidays (only just got round to editing and uploading the pics). I've also previously made the BMW with sidecar and the Triumph in the same scale. I've enjoyed making them all and they now make a nice trio on my shelf.
  11. Very nice. The extra details and additions lift it above the norm. I'm just coming to the end of building one myself, but mine's a bit more 'bog standard'.
