  1. 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
  2. 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.
  3. Hi all. As I have got rather busy these days, I decided to make a small kit. I found this kit on Amazon at a reasonable rate and present it to you guys. It has 2 options, US Army and USMC. After the scientific decision making process that is heads or tails, I decided I will make the US army version. The box art. This shows the Marine Corps version. The sprues and instructions. And because nobody asked, a picture of my workspace.
  4. This little adventure started on Boxing day, when @Brad worked wonders in the Christmas ‘Blitzenbuild’ – with his Tamiya Volkswagen Kübelwagen. I was so impressed with the result I shamelessly decided to copy his lead and have a go myself. I’m sure it isn’t as easy as he made it look, but nothing ventured – nothing gained as they say. Now – if it’s OK with everyone I’m going to drop the umlaut (ü) from here on in – as I struggle with the windows ‘character map’ at the best of times. Anyway - after a bit of trawling round the tinterwebs I found the kit on Amazon for a nice price
  5. Right chaps, I'm a bit stalled on the 43, so much scratch building that i feel that I need to do build something a bit less challenging. I've selected this little beauty, one that my very good friend bought me a few years ago, Longshanks, so take a bow fella I know you've been waiting to see this get done. After my holiday to Normandy I'm a bit inspired to build something that would fit in with the trip. Next to no AM will be hurt in this build but I'll do some light scratch work just to work things in my own way. I built a Sherman back in 2016 and really enjoye
  6. Kit - Zvezda Paint - All Tamiya acylics Decals - Spares Extras - DEF Models kit-specific resin mantlet and aluminium barrel. So here' my first ever Zvezda kit which I started about six weeks ago, and other than some cursing around the link & length tracks which seem a half-link or link too long... it went together very easily in just three sessions. I mixed my own version of 4BO green using various Tamiya greens, yellows and possibly some witchcraft. I gave it two co
  7. 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
  8. 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
  9. 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
  10. Hi Pals, I finish working with this model. I have seen that it is a fairly simple kit, without major problems for assembly, with acceptable instructions. As a bonus, you can make several versions, just before the Paladin appears. Although this is an old kit, modestly I think that you could still get a good result, (I am reasonably happy with it), the only thing that gave me headaches were the main pieces of the turret and helmet, as they were crooked , I imagine that by the passage of time, and the worst, the tracks, which when they were already in place, split, where the hardest (in
  11. Hi all, Just completed this Hobbyboss sd kfz 222 - built OOB. Nicely detailed interior which is completely wasted if you close the vehicle up, as I did . Lightly weathered with some oils and pigments, but that's about it. I haven't built much armour, but am keen to understand where I could improve, so don't hold back
  12. I think this is ready for inspection... This is the first model I've completed since my youth nearly 20-years-ago. I've found that as I've reentered modeling as an adult I'm never exactly sure when I'm done with a project. Please let me know if there are any aspects I can improve or add on. This is an older Tamiya "Early Production" kit I've had for nearly two-decades. The decals required quite a bit of softening to properly adhere. Perhaps taking the easy route, I chose not to recreate a specific Tiger; just a three-color camo pattern with no unit markings other than the tank's nu
  13. I have had this Dragon kit in the stash for over 20 years so it's not one of their newer kits but it still looks quite nice for it's age. I have just ordered a metal barrel with brass muzzle brake to improve it's looks and a few more bits of AM to bring it up to date. Sometime in the distant past I made a small start on this and attached the axles but that's as far as I got, everything else is still bagged up including the track links which are the pre-magic track individual links on sprues. so now I have retrieved from the stash I might as well finish it off. At the moment my idea for

    Hello, I'm very excited by this GB, and my first entry will be Trumpeter's Rooikat AFV in South African service. The vehicles are used for reconnaissance and in the tank destroyer role. They entered service around 1990 and took part in the South African and Botswanan 1998 intervention in Lesotho. About 250 of these decidedly strange looking vehicles are still active. The Trumpeter kit looks pretty nice, but these tie downs on the turret could use replacement...or at least some kind of camouflage netting to conceal their solidness. Im not lookin
  15. 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.
  16. Taxi de la Marne ICM 1/35 Finally finished after 18 months on and off It’s been a challenging build - slightly misaligned molds meant every part had to have work to get them to fit along with the usual ICM over engineering (why use 1 part when we can use 5 on something you won’t see when it’s finished anyway ) Happy with the result though in the end
  17. Whilst searching the internet for a Kitty Hawk Blackhawk and not getting very far, i came across various models for different figures on the ol' eBay and upon looking at the description and the product picture, i thought looked really cool! The detail of the 1/35 Figures were very intricate and detailed, best of all was the price....£9.32 including post and packaging! wow i bought 2 and waited.......and waited.....and waited....checked the details page on ebay....Sending to the UK from none other than Shaghai......by boat...jeezo, long wait Then finally one day a battered pack
  18. Over the last couple of years I have been modelling various vehicles that were used by the British 11th Armoured Division on their journey from Normandy to Lubeck. Somewhere down the line I was googling & stumbled across this picture... later I found the official description of the picture... The men doing the painting are... Men of 23rd Hussars 11th Armoured Division painting divisional and arm of service markings on a German Schwimmwagen captured from 12th SS Panzer Division (HitlerJugend) 6 July 1944 So we have a
  19. Good day, colleagues! I present to you for your review my variation on the theme of the most likely boring "picnic carts". I took a pre-order model from my local store, fell for the wheels (which I never regret) In general, the model is out of the box, but with "nuances". For the same pre-order, I got a set from Quinta. There is a gopher. Another gopher - photo-etched belts from Microdesign. Externally - self-made nets instead of the godless out of the box Replacing all staples with wire (Not right away, but I won over laziness: 3) Camera wires Manhole drives Well, I also w
  20. Here is my recently completed Tamiya Stug III G, which I have depicted with a well-worn whitewash. Unfortunately, I was a little too far advanced with it to join the current group build. It was painted with acrylics and weathered with oils and pigments. I used the kit rubber band tracks, which I think turned out ok. I used little bits of sponge to push the tracks down to create sag, then super glued them in place before removing the sponge pieces. I also lost the fire extinguisher and will try to make one soon. Thanks for looking, Greg
  21. Ahoy! This will be my second tank kit built as part of a GB. I will almost certainly be throwing out a few questions about weather at some point! Made a small start with this last night. This is my first non Tamiya tank, looking forward to seeing how the tracks turn out on this compared to the normal Tamiya rubber bands. Like the way Das Werk have designed them to make it easier to glue on the guide horns, sure I'll still manage to knock some of them off at some point. I found gluing the rear section of hull to one of the side walls helped with getting the botto
  22. 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
  23. Decided to join in on the Takom 'experience'. Inspiration for the build will be this period photo, though it won't be displayed knocked out: There are a few builds ongoing with the Takom kits, and wanted to see myself the fit problems - it did not take long ... There is also some measurement discrepancies compared to Dragon's smart kit of the III J. The length of hull plate (has the red bar over top) on the Takom kit, is bit deeper in depth. The weld bead in front of this looks ok, but the armour plate thickness appears to be slightly more
  24. This is ICM's recently released AC-40 Firetruck, which is a re-tool of their previous Zil-131 truck. The real thing dates back to the early '70's, although the 137A upgrade represented by the kit first appeared in '84. They're still in extensive use in Russia and the former bloc countries, and the marking option I went with is for a fairly current vehicle based in Vinnytsia, Ukraine. It's a pretty good kit overall, although a few errors with the parts and instructions seem to have crept in during the re-tooling from the basic Zil truck. The only really weak point are the vinyl tyre
  25. 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.
