  1. Love these 1/32 Arii kits, looking forward to seeing this one.
  2. Love these old 1/32 kits, especially with the driver added.
  3. Thanks Stix. It is a nice kit for sure. I built their M4A4 a while ago and enjoyed it too. Here is the turret glued together! That's quite a joint. I sanded, filled it with melted sprue and then textured it with the cement and toothbrush. I also managed to assemble the bodies, Nothing to report there, all fell into place.
  4. Here is Theoden with base coats mostly done. Used acrylics and will mostly continue with them. I might use some oil paints later.
  5. Those tracks look great, quite good design and quality that they include the steel pins.
  6. Looks like a major project, looking forward to seeing it unfold.
  7. It is a good pose, and the fine detail of the uniform! I made a start, the sides of the cast hull are smooth so they need some texture. I brushed on some thin cement and then dabbed it with an old toothbrush. When it dried I sanded off the high spots a bit. The rear of the hull has a horizontal line from the mold. I sanded it flat and then did the same texturing. I don't usually build 1/72 kits and have to get used to how little this thing is.
  8. That track looks great. I used to collect AFV rubber band tracks for Dragon Shermans to avoid individual link tracks. The Dragon tracks have their own challenges. Looks like these Miniart tracks take longer but give a better, more workable result. Looking forward to this build.
  9. I finished the sculpting on the king of the Mark. It was a big hurdle because I don't have much sculpting experience. And I feel reverence for good sculptors. I think Snowmane deserves a bit more decoration on her harness. And I still need to add the buckles for the sword belt. But I feel really good now that the bulk of the conversions are done.
  10. Thanks all. I was looking at the figures and they deserve a close up. How did someone sculpt these? So much skill.
  11. Here's my entry, this little kit came in a huge box with an LCM and vacuformed beach. It is a beautiful looking gem, No photoetch thank goodness. The crew is a really nicely sculpted and cast resin set. I don't build many 1/72 kits and am looking forward to this.
  12. Good idea Marklo, I'll think about painting mono-colour rib tape if I run into worse issues with these decals. I sprayed some Humbrol 75 on the cowling, some tamiya acrylic on the fuselage, and then brushed Vandyke brown oil paint on the plywood panels. It took a while to rub it into all of the panel lines, I'm happy with how it turned out.
