  1. New Tamiya P38 Lightning 1/48 1/35 Tamiya Valentine 1/48 Revell Mosquito Very happy bunny!!!!!!!!
  2. Hi Great build so far. Just wondering what revell colours you used, out of tin or custom mixes? Andy
  3. Hi. Afraid not, but I seem to remember that it was more than the instructions stated. Andy
  4. Hey Roger, Finished the KV-1s version of this kit at the beginning of the year, looking forward to see how yours turns out. Watch out for the tracks, the instructions were wrong about how many links were needed. Regards Andy
  5. Hi, Sorry having bit of trouble photos but I have made a start . Lower hull assembled, now all those wheels to paint!!!!! Andy
  6. Hi guys, About to make to a start on my Tamiya Tiger I Early. For the first time I'm going to adding a little aftermarket in the form of some Eduard engine grills and some ARV Club single link tracks. The kit will be brush painted using Revell and Humbrol acrylics ( not chosen the exact paint scheme just yet). I will be shamelessly copying some of Plastix excellent techniques to get the best finish possible. Will put some photo's up in the next few days. Cheers Andy
  7. Hi, Room for one more? I would like to join in with a tamiya 1/35 Tiger l early. Looking to try workable tracks for the first time.
  8. Hi Some really great builds that can only be described as a brush painting masterclass. The Tiger and the M4 being my personal favourites. Looking forward to next year's selection. Regards Andy

    UM kits any good?

    Hi guys, Thanks for all the info. Lots for me to think on. Planning to get hold of one of the smaller train kits to see how it is Andy

    UM kits any good?

    Hi guys, I seem to be developing an interest in WWll armoured trains/railway guns but have realised that building them in my normal armour scale of 1/35 is not practical. A quick web search has shown there are a number of options in 1/72. UM seem to do a wide range of Russian armoured trains in this scale but as I have never come across this company before I was wondering if anyone has any experience of these kits? How do they build and what's the quality like? Was also wondering if the armoured train kits came with track lengths to mount them on? Many thanks Andy
  11. Hi thanks for the info guys. Looks like I'm not going to struggle to find one of these kits. Going to give the monogram kit a look too. Not too concerned if the shape is slightly off. Many thanks Andy
  12. Hi all. Just wondering if the Airfix Dornier DO17 has been discontinued as I cannot find it on the website? If it has can anyone recommend an alternative in 1/72. I'm looking to build a Battle of Britain aircraft. While I think about it can anyone recommend a decent Heinkel 111 from same period and scale? Many thanks Andy

    Tiger 1 tracks

    Hi Got a rather nice 1/35 Tamiya Early Production Tiger 1 for Christmas. Planning to build it more or less out of the box but would like to replace the rudder band tracks with some single link ones. I was therefore wondering if anyone recommend a good set? Want to keep the price reasonable so probably plastic rather metal. Many thanks Andy
