  1. Bit of a placeholder but, courtesy of Col the wise and omnipotent I'm in with my part-built Hawker Fury from the Lesser AirForces GB HERE. I'll do the pictures later and get ready for the GB to start. Second time lucky I hope.
  2. Greetings All I have resolved to actually finish at least one GB this year, on time. This could be the one! My entry is a Meteor F.4 using the Tamiya kit and a resin manufacturer (who I won't mention) supplied wing set. The resin appears to be a rip-off hence no names but it quite reasonable. I intend to build a full-span F.4 in 92Sqn service, they didn't last long before it was discovered the extra power was a bit much for the wings. 😮 The two fuselage halves are assembled but nothing else has been done on this except for painting the wheels. Photo bombing in is a long stalled Sea Meteor conversion which I'll finish at the same time but try to keep out of the photos. I should finish it as I got a lot of help HERE and then started building it HERE. Better late than never....
  3. I have inventoried my pile of Panzer IV bits and pieces and will be doing this rather rare beastie captured from the Boche and returned to Blighty so our tank designers could see what they were up against. Naturally it made no difference to the quality of British AFVs. Shortly after the Tamiya Ausf J was released Mike Belcher released an Ausf D conversion which turned out to be a curate's egg. The replacement upper hull was based on the 'J' which meant track-guard tops were the later pattern not fitted to this type as new. Like all the other pieces it was very well cast and the modifications were well executed. Then came the big blow. Turns out '800' was a rather rare hybrid D/E hull with an E turret. I filled the swear jar and put it away. Last November 2017 I dug it out again as conversions mastered for the kit seemed not to fit as they should. After careful measurements of Bovvie's survivor it became apparent that the fighting compartment is 1.5mm too short from the rear to the break in the roof line. While attempting to correct this I broke the resin upper hull. I sobbed and put it away again. Rather than post images I'm uncertain of have a gander HERE. As regards painting DAK vehicles Bruce Culver put together a very useful item linked in first post on HERE. I shall start this thread with a photo of the junk I'll be starting from nearer the time.
  4. After a terrible year of signing up (many times), starting build threads (fewer times), starting builds (even less times), and finishing builds (none at all 😪 ) I've gone back to THIS THREAD from October 2013 to get going again. This is where the model stands today I was a little optimistic about the time scale but this time it will be finished. I promise. Looks a little battered because of the Great Shelf Collapse of 2018 after which many models were put in an annex to the 3 Boxes of Doom while I got on with getting better. I'd also mounted the idler too far forward which started to really annoy me. After the fight to build and then paint this beast I'd had enough. Looking at the photos I've just taken the paintwork needs attention especially the tracks. However it will be a good start to recovering my mojo and learning to cope with a less-than-perfect right hand (trapped nerve...again ) Cover me Chaps and Chapesses I'm going in.
