  1. Hi, I get a flat firm base not to big about 8inches x 8inches, stretch & secure some cling film to it, I then spread out a thin layer of white glue, then sprinkle “Ice Sparkles” from Deluxe Materials. Once it is dry, usually overnight, shake off the excess, then peal of the resulting sheet of shattered glass. Cut to required size, I use the original glass as a template. richard
  2. Hi, Another lockdown diorama finished. Italari Ford Transit & Ebbro Citroen 2CV pickup All the best Richard
  3. This years IPMS Salisbury Model Show was cancelled, but we have put together an alternative show featuring our members lockdown models. This will go live on Saturday 30th May at 9am.
  4. Fair comment. The Tamiya & Revell clipped wing will be set in a museum diorama, waiting on the 1/32 civilian figures I ordered to arrive to go with the Spits. Just want to get the finished planes out there while I wait to finish the bases. Fair comment.

  5. Thanks for the info reference antenna, as you can see aircraft are not my usual modelling genre. Give me a rusted transit anytime...

  7. Hi, During lockdown, like most of us, I have made a few models, this gave me a change to hone my modelling skills and try my hand at modeling aircraft. Not my normal genre of model making, usual make restoration dioramas, figures & rust vehicles. I have put them all here, to save starting three individual threads. So here they are my three 1/32 Spitfires. Tamiya Revell - "Aces High" Revell MK. IXc clipped wing Stay safe Richard
  8. Cheers Copper645, I thought that when I saw the LWB was to be released, it would be nice to have a SWB version, so after some thunking time, it looked possible. So after taking a very deep breaths I started cutting, and it turned out to be easier than I thought. Might make a few more SWB versions, try and perfect the conversion method.
  9. Cheers. I'm going to build the kit as it is LWB. Then will do a pickup version:
  10. I have done it as an AA Relay Vehicle as well..
  11. Cheers. I have.. Started with the LWB shell, then cut off the back section: Then cut out the rear door: Further cutting was done on the rear section: Repeated for the other side, test fit of the cut out sections: A bit of filling to do with plastic card, then filled and sanded: Then it was on to resizing the interior and chassis: Once completed, test fit of all parts then a quick coat of primer: That's it, on SWB Landie.
  12. I build the base so I could swap out different cars. But, in time, I will build a base specifically for the Landie, thinking of a farmyard / barn scene.
  13. HNY to everyone. Last year was a very busy year for me, so have not been able to get on here as much as I would have liked. I guess my new years resolution will be to visit BritMod more. Thought I'd show off my conversion of the new LWB Revell III series Land Rover into a SWB version. If useful, I will post some of the pics I took of the deconstruction stage. Cheers Richard
  14. Cheers JohnT - Sea Harrier will have to wait a while, got some figures from ELAN13 to do yet, small scale stuff. Trevor, Cheers for the kind comments. Many thanks John. Hope to get some pics taken soon with out the background clutter. Cheers Richard
