  1. Aye up Andy. Great job. Looks like its just come off a road march. Not too mucky but not too clean either. Well done for sticking with it. Regards, Steve
  2. Aye up Andy, Nice save on the track. I always have trouble with one side of indy links then the other side goes on easier. The law of sod no doubt! Look forward to seeing more progress. Regards, Steve
  3. Aye up Darryl. Nice going so far. I would imagine white for the cab interior etc. As for the turret, i reakon the interior of it would be the original colour of the exterior eg Olive Drab or SCC2. The light mud colour may have been applied in theatre and would be on the outside only. I'm sure someone with greater knowledge than me will be along with better and more accurate info! Regards, Steve
  4. Aye up Andy. No WIP unfortunately. As regards the painting - I completed the build then primed and painted the kit complete with tracks on. I really do need to finish it! Nice work with the funning gear. Be wary when fitting the drive sprokets as i found them VERY fiddly and six pairs of hands are needed! If i recall it was quite a fragile sub assembly too unless it was due to my ham fists and fatfingers! Regards, Steve
  5. Aye up Andy, I built the MkII* version last year. Nice kit. The running gear is very fiddly but looks good when done. The indie tracks were proper scary so i used the rubber tracks from the Tamiya Matilda kit. If i recall they fitted without having to nip any links off and they look ok. Really need to finish it off as its currently in weathering limbo.... Look forward to seeing what you do with yours. Regards, Steve
  6. Built by The Hunslet Engine Company about 2 miles from where i live no less. The company originally built steam engines then designed and built diesel and electric engines for mines and quarries etc. Still in business too. They built many steam engines that went the world over and many are still running, including one on the Middleton Railway in Leeds which is the worlds oldest railway still in operation. Regards, Steve
  7. On A64 on way back from Scarborough this afty.... a Chevrolet Bel Air in a strange pearly, grey pink colour. Was all shiny with lots of chrome. Mrs fatfingers thought i said it was a Chevy bell end! Regards, Steve
  8. Aye up Roger, Great job. Really like the two tone paint scheme. Regards, Steve
  9. Aye up Darryl. Brilliant job on the Cromwell and i really like the finish on the Sherman. Regards, Steve
  10. Air date finally confirmed for November 17th at 9pm on BBC1 Regards, Steve
  11. Britain At War and History Of War November issues. Both good mags but tend to get History every month and Britain only when something of interest is in it. Regards, Steve
  12. Aye up John, Great job on this. Really like how you've posed it on the slope and some nice little details such as the box of cans and open locker on the fender. Regards, Steve
  13. They even managed to shoot up some of their own ships at the same time!! Steve
  14. Aye up Nigel, It is indeed a Gatling type gun. Not sure when we stopped using them though. Aye up Chris, In the programme reference is made to some fishing trawlers being shot up by Russian warships. One was sunk and several others damaged. This happened in 1904 off the east coat of England when trawlers from Hull were mistaken for Japanese torpedo boats! The Russian Baltic fleet was on its way to fight in the Russian/Japanese war which would make the year correct. Regards, Steve
  15. Aye up Ratch. Nice to see you in the clanky tanky bit. Kit coming together very nicely. Got the Tamiya J version on the shelf of doom at the moment. Regards, Steve
