  1. thanks George. I have ummed and ahhed a few times on various kits but this one is just perfect.... hope I can do it justice.... and if I do, I am thinking my super Pershing (when I build it) may get some crew too
  2. Wheels on.... That's a big step.... Dust done.... Detail work underway. Hope to have it finished for next weekend....
  3. Would a 1/4 tonne utility truck (or a Jeep) be acceptable? Plan to load it with stowage rather than the .50 cal
  4. Sooooo small but fighting compartment has come together.... Bit of weathering with chipping and then dirt and leaf litter held with VMS sand and ballast freeze (likely to need a touch of Matt varnish when dry)
  5. no progress since the last update BUT have taken the plunge and ordered my first resin figure. There is a nice DEF model Korean US tanker for winter 50/51 that is perfect for this kit... may put in turret or mount standing on engine deck, will see
  6. Can't see it very well but started on a slight bit of weathering. Frist it was panel lines. Will do some very light chipping and scuffs....
  7. Ooohhhh it's beginning to look like a tank ..
  8. With the aid of a new compressor and a new .5mm needle in my nacky old airbrush the interior parts have been primed.....
  9. that was the reasoning behind the BartSharp..... and why the H&S needs cleaning (and possibly a new needle - which will cost more than the new A/B
  10. well actually my original chinese AB130 is not overly usable so will turn it in to the primer/varnish mule with a new .5mm needle. The H&S is OK, needs another good clean, so added a BartSharp 186 to the mix - yes cheap but within my budget it seemd a good choice.....
  11. one dead compressor replaced, hope to get matt varnish on - maybe tomorrow lunchtime.... then its on with wheels, weathering, fiddly paint, side armour and finished.....
  12. wahoo, new airbrush compressor has arrived which I hope will mean this can be primed at the weekend... fingers crossed
  13. thats a great build of a big ugly vehicle.... love the texturing, I am doing the same on my M46 Patton from Takom - has some texture just not enough for my liking Looking forward to seeing this painted
  14. very nice work, and those figures are brilliant
  15. stunning as always... looking forward to it being painted
  16. New compressor (and sneaky airbrush) ordered, should be here before the weekend ... And first run of tracks done ...
  17. thanks... luckily. 1) I a due a bonus from work in this months pay packet so can afford a compressor (or at least ~£100 of compressor) 2) this kit doesn't need paint just yet so can build this while I wait....
  18. Can I ask if you went with either of them? If so, any good?
  19. A dead compressor meant painting planned for today has to wait, so the Patton gets some more work.... Wheels done, tracks have pushout marks filled ready for sanding and rear fixtures and fittings on (plus one replacement handle after the other pinged off in to the ether)....
  20. Suspension on, starting on the wheels....... Lots of wheels
  21. Front glacis sanded.... Think this is a bit better
  22. Thanks Francis. So far the kit has gone together well but as you can see not a great deal of progress... I have sanded the extra texture back a bit. Much happier now
