  1. Yeah, my thoughts exactly. From what I've read it took 250,000 man hours per vehicle and 300,000 Reichmarks in cost. I have to take my hat off to that young chap, very talented in metal work indeed - even down to making the wing nuts from scratch. I wonder how long before they embark on the full interior and up and running.
  2. Hello all.....had a chance to do some catch up on the forum. I wanted to drop this in the thread. Not having sen all of this thread, it being a long one; but I came across this on Youtube. Thought it was a good one as you get to see a lot of details on the Tiger one in restoration, especially some components and how they went together. Impressive work they have completed to date.
  3. That's a nice Sturmtiger. I don't think enough are painted in plain Dunkelgelb, as this is. Really nice variations to the colour overall.......it's a colour scheme I intend to do more of in the future, as I've fallen into the trap on some projects to do a camp scheme........really nice job...
  4. Interesting build I must say, with some very nice scratch building. Enjoyable to follow along........
  5. Hi Rob, yes I know the one. I put one in the sale section on here a few months ago....but no takers. I sold it on Ebay in the end. Thought as I already had the spaded version it could go. You should enjoy the build as it virtually the same internally. Good luck with it.....
  6. Here's the finished piece if you haven't seen it.......
  7. Hi Rob, how are you and thanks for the kind comments. I take it you mean the Umbau version D, is it by Takom?.......if yes, to my knowledge it was released after the order for Zim to stop being applied. I might be corrected, but it was without. Thanks again mate....enjoy the build. I enjoyed this one a lot as a full interior as you can expose more than a standard Panther interior kit.
  8. Yes, I have to agree with all of the above comments above. Nice job on build and weathering, Panzer Grey isn't easy to do..........
  9. That's a nice job Stix, love the diorama. I have a Firefly waiting for its paint job, you've motivated me to take a look at it again. I'll probably follow your lead on the paint and weathering, really nice job you've done. I wish I had the space for such large diorama's.
  10. Coming along nicely Steve. My bench is still shut down, much to my disappointment. Hope to be back up and running in a month or two. I'm enjoying the build so far......
  11. Seem's you have a handle on it so far Maddox.......nice weathering on the parts..
  12. Cracking piece of modelling that. 10 out of 10. Nice layout and positioning of the figures. All looks very natural, great job......
  13. Wow, that's nice. Really nicely done weathering.Great job.....
  14. That's a nice piece of modelling, very nice. All very vivid, but at the same time so subtle to give a really well used and combat worn look. Top notch.......
  15. Not my subject matter, but bravo on the build so far......nice clean build and lovely paint job..............
  16. Seems like you're having some little issues, but it's look really good mate. Defiantly a kit I'll look for in future, but as you say maybe check out the Miniart one. I'd lie to know your overall opinion at the end. Painting it looks to be a mamouth task as it does have quite a lot of detail. I have a Jagdpanther on the cards next, with the same issues.
  17. Really like how this is turning out Rob, nice job. I think the Wespe itself is spot on. I know there are some out there that lean towards very light weathering, wear and tear. If you study images, especially the Eastern Front, the AFV's and soft skins were well dogged. I think you've achieved that look. Nice all over.
  18. Nice work Filipino, really nice. Wish I had the same patience. I take it you had plentiful images of the real thing. looking forward to the paint job
  19. Hi Rob, my best advice on the booze/brass is try MrColor Burnishable metallic's. I've found it to be the best and polish's up really well with something like a cotton bud. No need for a thick coating which can produce problems with fit of parts etc.
  20. I've heard that HobbyBoss and IBG have some to a lot of issues in their build fit and detail. Looks like you did a good job though on the artillery bringing it up to scratch. Nice work......
  21. That's a nice little thing that Rob, quick build too. I've yet to build an ICM kit. Looks like there were little to no issues you experienced. Might keep my eye open for an ICM and give them a try. Seem's they are reasonably price too, in light of the ridiculous prices now being asked on Ebay and the like for other brands - Dragon, Tamiya and Takom.
  22. Interesting build so far. This would a full interior kit I'd look at as you can leave the top off to actually see the interior; unlike some other's like the Panther's. Quick question. It looked like to sanded those box structures pictures above.....any reason why?
  23. Must have missed this one, nice progress so far.....an interesting build to follow indeed. I've always loved this Citroen and would love to have real one......I nicknamed it the "Gestapo Citroen". There's an Historian on TV, James Holland; that has one and he drives in some of his documentaries when he visits veterans to interview them. Nice work....
  24. Thanks Steve, not far away. My model bench is down at present working on some DIY. Once I'm back up I'll kick off the jagdpanther G2 full interior. I'm spending my time at present getting all the upgrades - brass shells, anti aircraft armour etc. I'm also picking up all the upgrades for every kit I have in the stash as it looks like there's going to be supply problems all round for some time. I was told yesterday that Friul hasn't made any now stock since early COVID......plus with China in lockdown, all I see is out of stock notices for most UK sellers on many things. I switched back to Ali Express to pick up some R-Model tracks as nothing was available in the UK for an Sd.Kfz.8 Schwerer Zugkraftwagen 12t that I picked up cheap off Ebay that had no tracks. Anyway, looking forward to progress on the new Tiger. all the best..
  25. Nice work all-round there Steve, love all the weld detailing and changes to make it more accurate. I'll try and catch up a bit on the thread and keep up with this new Tiger build; now I have a little more time......
