  1. After just completing two Tamiya motorbike kits, here is something completely different. I was lucky enough to have been given two old Bandai kits by a friend. They are both 1/16 scale, one is a Mercer Raceabout car and the other is this Traction Engine. There are excellent builds of both of these kits elsewhere on the forum which I encourage you to have a look at. After quite of bit of research on the internet, I have found that the Pendle Princess kit has been released by other companies apart from Bandai, but I think the original was by Bandai. To the best of my knowledge my kit
  2. Hi Folk's Figure's don't feature much for me but needing a quick build for our first Blitzbuild of the year I took a punt on one of Tamiya's kit's. It took around four hour's over the two twelve hour slot's allowed to complete and was great fun,thank's for looking in.
  3. Built some time ago, this shows it pre-weathering (primarily achieved by driving around the garden). I've also added squadron markings since then. Several mods to the interior and electronics. External mods include the front equipment rack and opening drivers hatch (for the control switches) It's in the uniquely coloured NZ MERDC camo.
  4. I've been working on this one for the last couple of months, but it's a loooong term build, so I've still got a long way to go with it! It's the 1/16 kit from Model Airways. Here's some of the progress I made so far Putting together the wing ribs (each one needs capping with strips of wood): These are then pinned into position: Leading edge and wing tips are added next: Then the trailing edge, and compression bars are added So far the only modification I made was to replace the compression bars with wooden parts (including brass mounting points for all the internal rigging), and
  5. I have had this beast on my bench for months now and I have been taking pictures of the progression I have been making on it. The only problem is that I haven't uploaded them so I have over 100 pictures that need to be shared. I have been doing my best to make the tank as historically accurate as possible thanks to the book.
  6. Something different I built this week. Needs some weathering, mostly dust. It's big, almost as big as that 1/16 King Tiger.
  7. Hi everyone The first work in new year. ICM 1/16 SWAT Team Leader. The figure is executed for the customer. Cheers Martin
  8. I have been working on the Trumpeter Tiger II for almost half a year now (yes I have pictures of the progress). But I've run into a problem with the Turret basket, on the real Tiger II there is the diamond plating at the bottom of the basket and in the kit the basket is bare. I also noticed that the diamond pattern around the turret basket is also incorrect and they are missing the diamond pattern for the drivers' feet. I am curious as to where one could acquire the correct diamond pattern and size. I have been looking around and couldn't find anything that is correct.
  9. Up for RFI is a 1/16 scale plastic kit of Leonardo Da Vinci's submarine design based on sketches in his notebooks. Of note is it is unclear if this was used as there was mysterious sinking of Turk ships during a campaign involving Leonardo, wether it was his submarine or his diving suit that was used is not known from what i could find out on the web. Heres a link to the WIP thread The model is a snap fit kit but i did glue mine. Hand painted in Vallejo acrylics with a black wash to enhance the grain effect moulded ito the plastic made it a very enjoyable build.
  10. Hi guys, This is going to be the first in probably a very long set of updates over the next god knows how long. After getting back into the hobby as an adult last year I've finally got myself up to where I want to take on a big project, until now the most difficult model I've built was MENGs terminator, which was more work than difficult. I wanted a challange, something to sink my teeth into over a long time and boy did I get it. After looking around for an internal detail kit for a quite a while I finally settled on the 1/16th panzer 4. I went for the ausf f2 variant, personally I
  11. Trumpeter 1/16 Tiger II Here is my Trumpeter Tiger II finally completed after almost 3 1/2 years. This project was a huge challenge, with lots of firsts for me. The base kit was modified with lots of aftermarket and scratch built items to increase the detail / accuracy. I won't go into detail about the build as it can all be found HERE. Just want to say a quick thanks to all those that followed the build and all the encouragement to get this build finished 1 by Matt Tullier, on Flickr 2 by Matt Tullier, on Flickr 3 by Matt Tullier, on Flickr
  12. Anyone seen any more previews of Trumpeter's 1/16 Jagdtiger? I think it's due out soon?
  13. Finally some progress on the huge King Tiger! I started this almost a year ago! But found I was getting too short on time, with commission builds:-( I've restarted it now and i'm going to see though to completion ....somehow. This KT is going to be based on Abt 503 or possibly 101 from France 1944. This will have a Zimmerit finish. Some progress pics below: The hatch mechanisms, although quite a delicate fidel, work quite well when finished. The build quality and fit on this model are very good considering the size of the molds. The 88mm L71: Dry fit to turret base
  14. This kit I bought to practice painting faces on several years ago and it sat in my cabinet, headless for about 2 years. I finally decided I should take a crack at finishing it off so here's the result. I'm happy I managed to line the eyes up and it looks ok from 3ft away. My first attempts at a face looked like Marge Simpson after Homer had done her make up with the make up shot gun (for women with only 4/5ths of a second to get ready). It was brush painted with Vallejo and the base is an old trophy with some dirt from the back yard and grass tufts from MiniNatur.
  15. Trumpeter's upcoming 1/16 German Sd.Kfz.186 Jagdtiger, is now available to preorder!
  16. Well, better late than never! Here is my GB entry. After much stash searching, procrastination, rethinks, and other excuses i have settled on this for my subject. Admittedly i am not a regular figure builder, and this is outside the comfort zone, but hey, its something different (for me). Heres the pics... As you can see he's quite a grumpy looking chap. I hope he doesn't make me grumpy in the process!! Thanks for watching, cheers Greg
  17. Good afternoon all! I an in Seattle Washington, USA. I like the 1/16 because it is large enough to detail without a microscope, yet small enough so that you do not need to build an addition to your house to display it. Those Tiger IIs are truly impressive. I have bought one of the Trumpeter 1/16 Pz IV H models and intend to build it doing as much detailing as is possible. After the Pz IV H I would like to build the tiger and if there is a Pz III N that would be sweet! I am primarily Tiger I and Pz III fan and have an extensive collection of books, DVDs, etc. on these subjects. Now I need
  18. Hi all, I'm not big into Armour, don't know my tanks well so would like some advise and what you think to this idea. Firstly, I would like an R/C Tiger tank, on a budget, I know this does not bode well, but hear me out.... The R/C is not to go blasting everywhere but more as a novelty (it will sit in my display case most of the time), the Tiger has to look like a Tiger (so long as it looks OK, it does not have to be rivit correct), It HAS to be a Tiger, early or mid. King etc is no good, it's an Tiger early or mid or nothing. But most importantly I do not have an endless budget, less than £
  19. Hi folks, I haven't seen anything about this here, but it appears from TamiyaBlog that a 1/16 scale RC type 10 was shown at Tamiya Fair this weekend: http://tamiyablog.com/2014/11/first-photos-from-tamiya-fair-2014-new-releases-and-events/ A previous entry suggests this will also be a static kit. Looks nice! Will
  20. Hi folks, This was a build I did for my mother-in-law who always wanted a purple VW but never had the chance to own one... The kit was ok but I found the quality of some of the mouldings very poor. There was lots of repair work done to one of the doors (no pictures as I was not totally happy with it) and the fit of some of the key pieces was off but overall, a very fun project. First time trying to paint Gloss finish on a kit as well - Enjoy. And just a few pictures of the build: one of the many many coats of Purple used to build colour depth.
