  1. Very stylish markings. The black background looks slightly strange though: is it a high gloss finish and it's catching a reflection from the sky ?
  2. Welcome and a very evocative diorama to introduce your work. If you select the three horizontal dots in the top right hand corner of your other post, you should see an "edit" option which will let you add more text to the post and then save it again. Hope this helps.
  3. To offer an uneducated suggestion, you could probably create a scene using any suitable vehicle that was at hand at the time.
  4. I think both kits use a common "Sprue A" which includes all the chassis and axle/drivetrain components.
  5. Hi Rob Sorry to hear your news, making contact with the British Heart Foundation http://www.bhf.org.uk might be a good first starting point. Hope all goes well
  6. Another alternative, try to find some anglers' micro lead shot (available from your local High Street Angling Supplier or on-line auction sites) and carefully pour it into the nosewheel bay in the way which @Black Knight has described. One of my father's friends shoots clay pigeons and he gave me the contents of a couple of shotgun cartridges a few years ago and I'm still making use of them.
  7. Following with interest as I have one of these on my wish list but I have always been reluctant to part with the fairly significant amount they (understandably) cost without having the opportunity to see one being built up first.
  8. That's a FV180 Combat Engineer Tractor - again Accurate Armour may be able to help you.
  9. This 'twas probably the other one - an FV106 Samson
  10. Hi Mike These folk might be able to help with some aftermarket parts.
  11. Hi Dave It might be worth asking the same question at www.fightercontrol.co.uk - they have an Old Serial Tie Up Area which could be a good starting point.
  12. Hoping the the Britmodeller collective can help shed some light on a straightforward question. Modelcraft produce three sets Broaches in both cutting and smoothing versions: Set 1 - 0.4 mm to 1.4 mm Set 2 - 0.6 mm to 2.0 mm Set 3 - 1.2 mm to 3.0 mm Can anyone shed any light whether the three sets overlap by sharing some of the same size tools or do they all contain a separate set of tools with different diameters ? Thank you
