  1. germans go crazy for recycling and deposits on bottles etc. can be a nightmare when like 10 diff coloured bins etc. i always got confused i agree, the boxes are crap,but i dont think this is down to recyling issue.
  2. Ta Dan. doing little bits when im not high on meds or bent over backwards with back ache. car should be sorted on Wed, so i can get your package weighed.
  3. geez, got to agree. i love the prowler, but the kinetc was out of my price range, so this takes the crap. esp as someone else says not been out long.
  4. Made one, the grey one and really enjoyed it, so dug out 2 more from the stash. grey one has metal front bumber added and resin cab cover but tried to make all 5 different, imade the rear cover myself, i think it should have been a little futher down the sides.. heres a load of fotos images
  5. looks good. wheels and tracks dont match the condition of the rest of the tank though. good you havent overdone it though.
  6. good points. i have some fotos of the rear trailer carrying a damn huge electrical generator, trying to squeeze through a factory gate, only just managed it. can see your points, but then the germans seemed to over engineer most things, cost wise and reliability wise
  7. no, in 32nd it would be right scale :-) its never perfect ;-)
  8. cool pics ta. gives me a good idea of the lenth of the bar between them. i have done all 3 slightly different, one has a large metal bumper, and half cover added at the rear (grey), one camo and open with full rea of bits n bobs, and a third, slightly differrent camo with a canvas cover with added foilage(although i dont think it looks right for some reason). i guessed the turret would be reversed. the middle FAMO has broken down itself, with drivechain problems and the removal of the main drive sprocket wheel. i have a FAMO book but doesnt show the detail i want,so will have to keep a lo
  9. HI. built 3 FAMO, as i want a little vinigerette of them pulling a tank, i cant find any real fotos. maybe they used a long rod on each? Also if they were pulling a tank back from the front that needed repairs, would they remove the tank tracks so it ran on the wheels or leave the tracks on? thanks
  10. nice fotos of my fave plane, seen lots of real DDR ones, and been to a place in W Poland once. i only drive to poland for the vodka, the fuel, the tobacco (and the girls)...i really need to see more aircraft though :-)
  11. check his other items for pavla , i got this last week, and a much larger Mig range. not sure about a mig 19 though http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vie...em=230602045625
  12. thats great ta, its only 72nd so want to get close, i have some metal and resin german ones, some in cases etc but didnt want to totally use the wrong type lol
  13. oops, i just saw the word military... i always just click new posts, i never just look in certain sections.
  14. Im doing this i cant find any info on the ammo rounds it used, but i want to do it towed by a half track, so i guess the ammo rounds, if the only image i can find, shows them in long tubes each.is this correct? also, the kit is basic and having built it, something isnt right, how it connects to the truck, google doesnt really help :-/ has anyone got any drawings orknow awebsite that would help? thanks
  15. HI. has anyone got any pics or links to good websites please. want to open panels, rescribe and goto town on the kit cheers Jules
  16. palva/pavla??? do the vac canopies for the migs, i got a pack last week.
  17. mmmmm not sure airfix's latest FRS1 is poor compared to the esci, but they did it, mig 15 is very crap compared to the others, inc hobbyboss, hawks, spits etc etc..... i have the mbox one, its pretty poor for this century quality, and im sure a brand new tooled one would do well...
  18. cool. i tried ebay after seeing that but many times more expensive. that ones in my price range. i need some soon for a airfrix strikemaster rescribe
