    AFV Club 1/35 M113A1

    The foam is standard fit out of the factory, glued to the ceiling, and also to the inside of the rooftop cargo hatch: this is based on my expertise with late-model M113, so may not be correct for a 1960s track.

    AFV Club 1/35 M113A1

    Fantastic work! If I may make an observation? The ceiling of the M113 is covered with a foam insulation layer, and isn’t metallic.
  3. Thought I’d post my progress with the Tamiya 1/16 Abrams, converted to an Australian M1A1 AIM SA.
  4. http://www.tamiya.com/english/products/56041/index.htm There you go!
  5. With more F-35s built than Buccaneers (235 to date vs. 211), more operators (RAF, RN, RAAF, RNAF, RNoAF, USAF, USMC, USN, Japan, Israel, Italy vs. RN, RAF, SAAF), and more potential operations and markings, I can’t agree. Some of the USN, USMC, and RAAF schemes so far are looking pretty interesting (IMHO).
  6. That looks absolutely amazing! Fantastic work.

    1:147 HMS Surprise

    I’ve always been a bit down on/sceptical of injection molded plastic tall ships. Having seen your work, it seems a hasty revision of that opinion is in order!

    1:147 HMS Surprise

    Those headrails! Wow! Apart from the excellent work, they really change the way the bow looks. Lovely work.

    1:147 HMS Surprise

    Looking great - nice and steady progress, too. Are those sails vacform ones from the kit?

    1:147 HMS Surprise

    A lot of work to make this a flush-deck? Or does it qualify as a razee? Excellent job, regardless!
  11. Only the ‘C’ variant to go before the Big H has the full house.
  12. Excellent progress as always - any chance of an overall pic with something alongside for scale reference (bottle of beer, Eiffel Tower, aircraft carrier?)?
  13. Great to see more progress on this.

    1/35 Accurate Armour SAS Land Rover

    Is that a gun ring that the AGL/GMG is mounted on? Looks like it’s visible to the driver’ left (right as we look at it) and immediately to the rear of the roll-bar padding/rolled up tarp.

    British AFV Group Build

    Dependendant on when it kicks off. I’m up to my eyeballs converting Tamiya’s 1/16 Abrams to an Australian A1 at the moment. https://imgur.com/gallery/dzYND

    British AFV Group Build

    Small correction - Challenger 2 wasn’t deployed to Afghanistan. The only western tanks to serve there were Danish Leopard 2s, Canadian Leopard 1 & 2 variants, and USMC Abrams’. Interesting concept for a GB.
  17. Stunning work! That bridge is impressive - doubly so, when the scale is taken into account!
  18. Andrew - stunning, stunning work! Really enjoy watching such quality scratch building unfold.

    Japanese KC-46A?

    They have congressional approval for four KC-46s - note that these are very (very) different to the current KC-767J that the JASDF has in service.
  20. Lovely work! Looking forward to watching the sea-scape develop.
  21. Fantastic work, John! Always been fascinated by the ELCO 80’ boats - an interest piqued by seeing a Revell 1/72 kit built by a primary school mate. Regarding 109: I guess we have JFK to thank for the Revell kit: were he not skipper of 109, and later President, it’s less likely that Revell would’ve produced the kit... In the photo you linked to, PT487 also looks like a candidate... Please keep up the excellent work!

    HMAS/m AE2, Scratchbuild

    Steve, fantastic work! Your hard work has managed to get me interested in a subject I had a vague knowledge of, but little interest in! Side note: Australia is a bit odd as it has a Minister for Defence, but no Ministry of Defence....it’s the Department of Defence (DoD, not MoD). Tends to confuse both the UK and the US, I’ve found! Once again, fantastic work - no doubt everyone will continue to enjoy your updates.
