  1. Great new, that will make it easier with my build. cheers, Mike
  2. I remember having to wait for that to be on sale at our local record shop, after hearing it on Radio Luxembourgh.
  3. Yippee, whoop-whoop, hurray! At last, a British vehicle that can find itself in many settings. Great review Mike. cheers, Mike
  4. That book looks to be a very good starting point. Thank you for the recommendation. Mike
  5. The title basically says it all. I am trying to build some Far East street scenes and I have no problems with constructing the buildings and vehicles but figures have me stumped. Having searched the sites, including the 3D ones, and received suggestions, mostly military, I feel that I am going to need to make my own. Can anyone help with how to go about making people? I have a cutting machine and 3D printer, even a casting machine, but I need to know how to make some original civilian figures first. I work to 1:35 scale. cheers, Mike
  6. Hi Jim, nice views; however, it would be better if you posted your images directly here rather than sending us off to the site with all its other distracting images and swearing etc. Here is an example of how your post should look for best effect: cheers Mike
  7. Thank you, that is a nice start. I have a question, which I shall ask by pm. cheers, Mike
  8. Hello Cklasse, it is nice to hear from someone in Singapore and thank you for your update. Can I ask if you know of any local sources in Singapore, where I can get photos and architectural dimensions of the old buildings? I am trying to find more photos of the old shop and house fronts, the ones with the covered colonnades, especially any views with people, hawkers and street sellers for my diorama. So far, I have managed to make up the start for one building, based on photo-interpretation, and my intention is to make a row of them for a street scene. this is an idea of the type of setting I wish to produce. This one is of a house and I would like build some open fronted shops alongside. cheers, Mike
  9. My time in Singapore was at Nee Soon, on the Sembawang Road. 1966 - 71. There were two camps there, the old one; where the film Virgin Soldiers was shot and the new one called Dieppe Barracks. Mike
