  1. Armycast.cz used to have this set including decals: https://www.armycast.cz/eshop/index.php?id_product=42&controller=product&id_lang=2 Seems it is sold out now at Armycast.
  2. I'm in with a ESCI/Italeri F-5A in 1/72. Will be making an NF-5A of the Dutch Airforce and using DutchDecal set 72080
  3. Hmm, so with the new hull, tracks and existing Cpl Overby set the only 2 parts from the kit you need it the left anr right side of the turret.
  4. This time another Market Garden related topic. On 25 September 1944 Coldstream Guard enter the city of Oss. Amongs the vehicles there was at least one Stuart tank. Box art: 3 identical sprues in the box: The Cpl Overby conversion set: After a few hours this is what I managed to build: Plastic sheet added to extend the left side. On actual pics seems the right side was already removed by the crew: Wheels and tracks are just 1 part: Airbrushed the little tank and added some subtle weathering. Decals are from Dan Taylor Modelworks and Aleran decals. Crew and somee last bits and pieces to be added
  5. On 19 September 1944 my home town was liberated by Allied forces. As part of operation Market Garden 2 Cromwell tanks and 1 Chrevrolet truck liberated the village of Oss. Quite a lot of pics where made of that event. Link can be found below: http://www.bhic.nl/memorix/images/search?serviceUrl=%2Fbeeldbank%2Findeling%2Fgrid%2Fstart%2F24%3Ftemplate%3Dxhtml%26apikey%3D0ea60280-55ad-11e2-bcfd-0800200c9a66%26ltr%3Db%26f_fotograaf%3DBergh%252C%2BLeo%2Bvan%2Bden%26f_plaats%255B0%255D%3DOss I'll be making one of these tanks. Box: Sprues: Decals: I'll be using the Dan Tayor Modelworks conversion set. It contains of a new cupola and some additional details. Excellent manual: Revell manual: Sprues: After putting the main hull together it is starting to look like a tank: And the resin cupola: Adding some colors and weathering: Last bits and pieces of equipement to be added. Tank commander and some members of the local resitance to be put on the tank.
  6. Last bits and pieces added to the jeep.
  7. Started this one some time ago. 6PDR comes from PSC and the 10CWT trailer is scratch build. Made the 10CWT trailer from plastic card and used the wheels and suspension from the Airfix kit. The 6pdr came from PSC. Used this website as reference: http://www.valiantminiatures.com/articles/making-an-airborne-6-pounder-anti-tank-gun/ And my interpretation of the Airborne jeep: As a reference I used Rob van Meel's book (http://www.robvanmeel.nl/?q=node/8557 ) After adding some colors it looks now like this: On the bonnet I need to add some small bits and pieces. Also the belts need to be added. The 10CWT trailer is finished: On the 75mm howitzer from Airfix I added some small bits and pieces:
  8. This one you mean? In Rob van Meel's book (http://www.robvanmeel.nl/?q=node/8557 ) there are 2 more pics and also one from the front of the jeep. You can see 2 sets of tubes on the bonnet, ammo case on the bumper and the pioneer tools strapped on the bonnet including some canvas/camo webbing. I'm using the AB, Germania and SHQ figures to recreate the same scene.
  9. Well, the box on the front bumper comes from the PSC Loyd Carrier set and is 6pdr ammo. According to pics around Arnhem the ammo was carried on the front bumper and in tubes on the bonnet. Never saw white crosses on the jerricans. The jerricans behind the seats are resin copies of the kit one . The kit one was was meant to put on the back of the jeep and had the holder molded on the jerrican. Similar holders were used to stow the jerricans in the jeep. I compared the size of the jerricans with other 1/72 samples and they have the same size.
  10. Well, to be honest. I first wanted to make a 10CWT trailer and then look if I could make another one as single pieces and cast them in resin. Seems possible to me but need to work out the details in the coming weeks.
  11. Hmm, bit of scratchbuidling could give some nice results: Made the 10CWT trailer from plastic card and used the wheels and suspension from the Airfix kit. The 6pdr came from PSC. Used this website as reference: http://www.valiantminiatures.com/articles/making-an-airborne-6-pounder-anti-tank-gun/ And my interpretation of the Airborne jeep: As a reference I used Rob van Meel's book (http://www.robvanmeel.nl/?q=node/8557 ) Hope this helps.
  12. Nice build Nils, whats FS-clors did you use? This kit brings back memories about the Italeri F-16 quite some years ago. That is why I bought this one. Almost comple; and mine will be in Dutch AF colors.
  13. Absolutely correct about the hood. This one was build for an IPMS new year event. One rule: kit needed to be build out of the box. One could only add missing parts and not replace any of the parts. Decals came from Dutch Decal.
  14. AZModel 1/72 Spitfire 322 Squadron H-51 Dutch Airforce as used in the Dutch Indies. Decals are Dutch Decal
