  1. An incredibly ugly aircraft, but an excellent model! The only area where the kit shows it's age is the clear parts (especially the nose turret).
  2. The Pe-2 is a very elegant aircraft and you've done her justice! The marbled color modulation on top surfaces breaks up the monochrome scheme nicely.
  3. Mike, the pictures look great! Surface detail and panel shading are more visible, and focus seems to better. A very nice blue-nosed Thud.
  4. A very clean build on one of the classic jet fighters from the 1950s. The Fujimi kit may be old, but surface texture and detailling still look up to date. The resin wheels do make a difference!
  5. Thank you for your response and your interest! Yes the model is airbrushed, using my Harder & Steenbeck Evolution with 0.15mm needle/nozzle. To replicate the camo scheme I used Uhu Tac, rolled into sausages, to mask the surface. This gum-like material sticks well and can be shaped into curves easily.
  6. Dear fellow Britmodellers, this is my 1/72 Hasegawa SdKfz 251 Ausf.D, painted with Mr.Hobby acrylics. Photographs by Wolfgang Rabel. The Hasegawa kit was first released in 1999 and does not hold up well against the Dragon kit, which has far better detailling on the inside. I converted the SdKfz 251/1 Ausf.D model kit to a battlefield ambulance, using Sandsmodels resin tarpaulin (to hide the missing interior detail) and decals from Aleran Miniatures ((MS-1). Thank you for your interest, best greetings from Lower Austria, Roman
  7. Dear fellow Britmodellers, this is the 1/72 Hasegawa SdKfz 234/3 "Stummel". I painted with Mr.Hobby acrylics and weathered with artist oils, pastel chalks, graphite pen and mud from the garden. Photos by Wolfgang Rabel. The Hasegawa kit was released in 2005 and builds into a nice replica, although detail in simplified in places. I built from the box, with the addition of a few etched parts for the interior (all of them invisible) and the antenna (from streched sprue). This quick build took about 10 days to complete. Thank you for your interest! Roman
  8. Your F-35 looks sinister in it's shade of greys. Well done paint job! It's not an aesthetically pleasing aircraft to my eyes, though.
  9. The Tamiya kit is a wonderful canvas to color your P-47! Most ETO jugs I've seen carry red or yellow nose bands, so blue is an interesting change. Nice trio you have collected.
  10. Thanks for your feedback, Simon! My IBG Cromwell was a smooth build, this kit is not as over-engineered as some of their other vehicles. However, there are a few inacurracies: the wheels have perforations around the rubber rims, according to my research, these were not used on combat vehicles in '44 (that's the reason I replaced the wheels with resin add-ons from Tank Models). The commander cuppola and hatches are a bit poor in detail, the same is true for the gun barrel - I replaced the kit's gun with a part from the Revell Cromwell. I generally enjoyed the build, but was slightly disappointed with some simplifications and omissions. For example I would have appreciated seperate towing hooks (a standard feature on other IBG vehicle kits), an open gun barrel, and photo-etch parts for the ring antenna base (the kit does include a small etched fret).
  11. Dear fellow Britmodellers, this is IBG'S 1/72 Cromwell Mk.IV (C-Type Hull), in markings of the 6th Airborne Armoured Regiment, 6th Airborne Division, operating in Normandy in summer 1944. Painted with Mr.Hobby acrylics, photos by Wolfgang Rabel. I added resin tracks and wheels from Tank Models (TM72030), stowage from Modell Trans (MT72062) and photo-etch antenna socket from Dan Taylor Modelworks (C-76081). The mud is real dirt from the garden, mixed with white glue and pigments and applied to the hull with a bristle brush. Weathering with pastel chalks, graphite pen and artist oils. Thank you for your interest in this topic, best greetings from Lower Austria! Roman
  12. Dear fellow Britmodellers, having completed my move from the city to the countryside, I now enjoy bird songs instead of road noise and the greenery of my garden instaed of concrete facades! It took quite some time to set up my modelling room and equipment in the new house, and I'm happy to share my first completed models with you. Number one: the 1/72 Dragon Hummel from the "Neo Pro" line wich features link-and-length tracks instead of the dreaded rubber bands they used before. I built from the box, adding the antenna from stretched sprue, and painted with Mr.Hobby acrylics. Markings represent a vehicle of an unknown Self-propelled artillery regiment on the Eastern Front, 1944/45. Photographs by Wolfgang Rabel. # Thank you for your interest, best greetings from Lower Austria, Roman
  13. Beautiful model, like @Tempestwulf said, the Academy Tempest really holds up well (much better than their Thphoon).
