  1. Finally.... only took me two months but serious illness in the family took me out of things for 6 weeks and was nearly finished then. Fairly pleased with this as a follow on from the old-skool tamiya Panther I built in March. Some of the decals are not quite right but something that I like on the shelf is more important than accuracy for me. Going contemporary with next build.... RFM Challenger 2 or Trumpeter T-14 Armata are waiting, but they might not get done until after summer when outdoors hopefully beckons. Straight out of box, no changes, painted with Vallejo acryli
  2. A Panzer III Ausf N I know, I said snow and the box says Tunisia (a country not noted for the cold), but there is method here. The intent is to build a vehicle attached to Pz.Abt 503 in early 1943. PzAbt 503 had trained for Africa, but were diverted to southern Russia after Stalingrad. Some of these characters may be invited to crew the tank.
  3. All done, typically good Tamiya kit presenting no problems at all. As always, brush painted with Humbrol enamels & finished off using Winsor & Newton Galleria acrylic varnish. The extra bits came from a separate Tamiya modern American set. The commander is a USMC tank crew from Mini Art. Photos below with a couple in black & white.

  4. Focusing on the figures in this diorama which shows my interpretation of the invasion of Crete in 1941. A glider load of 10 fallschirmjager disembarking from a glider which has just landed at Tavronitis Bridge. 10 modified and unmodified Dragon figures from various sets with Hornet heads. My first real attempt at developing my ability to paint faces and better uniforms. Still a long way to go. 10 pairs of eyes did my head in.
  5. Early in lockdown last year I fancied building a 1/35 OH-6A Cayuse but they were rather thin on the ground . However a fellow BM'er came up trumps and supplied me with an Italeri boxing kit along with a resin XM-27 mini gun, an eduard eched detail set, paint masks and a couple of resin figures for a very reasonable price. I was also lent a very interesting book called Aeroscouts in Vietnam which contains a wealth of information on how the OH-6A was used in Vietnam and also a lot of great pictures which I used to provide inspiration for the build. The M16 and M60 and, I
  6. I got these 3 1/35 figures on EBay. They seem to be looking for lost treasure in Egypt to me.
  7. I know I have to complete the models I started first. But because I have a very strong will, I have managed to defeat myself, and I continue to expand my collection of started and unfinished models. This time it’s Tamiya Marder I (35370) that I found under the Christmas tree. It's a very interesting vehicle - on thecaptured French Lorrain 37L, a fighting compartment was mounted with the best anti-tank 75-mm Pak 40 cannon at that time. All details fit perfectly. Excellent, easy to sand plastic, semi-assembled tracks. If assembled directly from the box, the model can be glued in
  8. A few shots of something I just completed. The diorama represents a glider which has just landed (heavily) next to Tavronitis Bridge on the morning of 20 May, 1941 during the start of the invasion of Crete. It is Bronco's 1/35 DFS. Nice interior but I added a battery and various pipes and cables which are difficult to notice, I did a cutaway of one side to show the nice frame. Capacity 10 including pilot, so there are 10 various modified and unmodified Dragon figures from different sets plus Hornet heads. More pictures of glider and figures in relevant Ready for Inspections.
  9. Something to keep me occupied during the winter break Tamiya 1/35 Mark IV Male tank, take two by Jon Gwinnett, on Flickr Tamiya 1/35 Mark IV Male tank, take two by Jon Gwinnett, on Flickr Tamiya 1/35 Mark IV Male tank, take two by Jon Gwinnett, on Flickr
  10. Well in between painting sessions on the BPBC and things being a bit fragile to transport I took this into the Model club on thursday night to start and I nearly had it done in a couple of hours while chatting and building with good friends only a few bits to add before painting and it comes with a couple of funny looking crew figures Hmm one looks familiar with that mask beefy
  11. P 204 (f) AKA a captured French Panhard AMD-35. Over 200 Panhard’s were captured by the Germans in 1940 and used by the Wehrmacht and the Waffen SS. I didn’t realise until I built this that the vehicle had dedicated front and rear driving positions. The Kit. I quite like ICM models. They build and fit well, are well priced, are not over engineered and when they come with figures you have great potential for a diorama out of the box. One thing I don’t like is the rubber wheels. Very hard to clean up and nothing seems to stick them. I have tried to depict the v
  12. Hi all, In between the frustrating steps of my other projects, I've decided to start something a little more easy going. I picked up Takom's M-46 and Jeep combo, a few days ago. Both kits have been previously released separately. I don't think there is anything new here. The patton has the fantastic Korean War tiger markings, and the jeep can also be built as a USMC Korean War vehicle. The choice was simple. Some of Takom's early kits were extremely frustrating, but the more recent releases are what I like to call "Tamiya-plus". The kits are wel
  13. Hi folks, just starting on my next build, which is Miniart's T34-85 Egyptian tank. This looks to be an absolutely stunning kit, which only came out the end of last year, there is so much detail, hopefully I can do it justice. As is typical with Miniart with the amount of detail that you have, it comes at a cost with the amount of parts in the kit (no problem for me as I enjoy the building). You have no fewer than 82 sprues plus photo etch and decals. Looks like they give you decals for some shells and some instrument panels as well, which is nice. On checking the parts I only found one breakag
  14. Please have a look at this diorama ‘Last Stand’, set somewhere in the final weeks of the war on the Eastern Front, featuring the Tamiya 88, figures from AC Models, base from Great North Roads plus bits and bobs mostly from Reality In Scale. I left the house interiors alone to focus on the devastation on the street. Thanks for looking!
  15. I'm going to park this thread here for the start of the GB. Here's the kit I'll be building: I was planning to just do a straight OOB build, though seems the kit is missing the tracks, so gah I'll need to find some replacements! Seems like a nice little kit, not an insane amount of bits and comes with a metal barrel for the cannon (handy as plastic that thin would be bound to break), a small PE fret, all the sprues being individually packed (apart from the duplicate sprues for the wheels)... Instructions seem - erm interesting, I was scratching my head over this
  16. Hi folks, After just completing my StuG for the Panzer III group build, whilst also in the process of being halfway through my entry for the A4 Skyhawk GB, I thought why not join in the fun for another GB I think this is a great topic for a GB and it offers such a vast array of options and choices. I had a few options in the stash that I considered, but in the end I decided to go for the following (cue obligatory box art shots): I thought this would make for an ideal entry to the GB - not a complex or taxing build but plenty of detail none the l
  17. With the Paris bus almost done I thought I’d start this which has been sitting on the shelf for a while now ive made a start while waiting for gloss varnish to dry on the Paris bus and after a few sessions and 114 parts I have this A bit of cleaning up to do and then on to the bogie assembly
  18. I'll be taking a crack at the Das Werk Stug III for this GB. Looks to be a reboxed Dragon kit , but could be wrong. Kit looks pretty tasty with some nice waffle zimmerit moulded on Box Artwork Schemes to choose from: Last tank scheme I did had a winter whitewash.... leaning towards having a go at something different. So think either the tri camo option or the one with the fine green lines. Going to have a bash at the interior too, as a lot seems to be included with the kit. Acquired some Vellejo mud effects for this one too, some thick and some
  19. Hi friends Sometimes i get feels for old school modeling, without Friuls, without PE parts, such projects which running quickly over the work bench, as we say in german,, a between through,, projects, you can switch off your mind totally, and build up just for fun. This M 113 was one of those. The build goes quickly coz just small amount of parts and straight of the box As my old Italeri Leopard, i want just have fun and joy to build this 40 years old kit fast and comes early to my passion the paint and weathering job. Hope you like it
  20. My entry for this groupbuild will be ICM's Model T 1917 LCP with ANZAC Crew. Plan is to raid my spare's box for some stowage and produce a small diorama base. A review of the kit and sprue shots can be seen here in @Julien review. Sprue shots far better than anything I could take.
  21. Time to start a new project, enough of the winter blues, to be different I decided to build something from the stash! Some classic Tamiya plastic: M60A1ERA 1 by phil da greek, on Flickr There’s no drama in this box, no hidden messages in the instructions it’s just classic Tamiya. I already have a bit of sand in the display cabinet so I think it’s going to be out of the box in NATO three colour camouflage. After a couple of two hour sessions most of the main construction is done, requiring clean up & a good looking at tomorrow before I get some paint on.
  22. Seems to be a run of large scale builds again. My hull for my 1/72 Leander HMNZS Waikato (see other build thread) is taking a bit longer than I expected when ordering due to demand (everyone staying home and model building I guess) and even when dispatched will take 4-5 weeks to get here so in the mean time I have decided to dive into the 1/35 Vosper I have sitting here. I intend to build as MTB 82 as she appeared in the Med Feb 1943. I while ago I picked up the Italeri Breda 20/65 mod. 35 gun to be able to add the Breda to the fore deck. Today
  23. Happy Friday BMers Hope you're all keeping well and getting plenty of bench time in. So here goes - this is my first ever StuG III build and only my third armour/military vehicle build to date. For anyone who'd like to take a look - these are the links to my first two builds: The Bucket Car and Tamiya 1/35 Panzer II I'm getting more in to armour builds as well as continuing with my usual aircraft builds - such as my Airfix Wellington which is progressing along nicely - so what better way to become even more acquainted than to join this GB along with all the other fel
  24. After a bit of research (Wikipedia) I decided to do something more on the modern end and use the Walker Bulldog from my stash. New Zealand acquired 10 in 1960 and they were used up till the early 1980s. The kit is the old Tamiya kit, which has roots back to 1964, so almost as old as the NZ service of the vehicle and pre-dates me! This will be the second time I've built this kit, the first was in my youth and it was the first 1/35 armour kit I built and I remember it going together quickly and impressively, lets see what 30 years of rose tinted glasses does! Even bac
