  1. I found this underneath the Italeri kit boxes that I just finished and thought it would be a nice filler between other builds going on. The 2 pounder was the British Anti-Tank gun at the beginning of WW2 and was a very effective weapon, being the best AT weapon of its time. It was used both as an anti tank weapon in AT units as well as arming British tanks. As armour became thicker it became less effective and was replaced by the 6 pounder in 1942. It's a weapon often overlooked and continued to arm armoured cars up to the end of the war. The box contains
  2. Hi everybody, up for inspection is my little Saracen from Ace, which I finished recently. For anyone interested in the building process I provide the link to the WIP thread. The build was not easy because of the many small detail parts and the flash everywhere - at some parts it was difficult to tell which was flash and where the part began. All in all I enjoyed the build, the real problem was me and my clumsiness. Shortly before reaching the finish line the vehicle decided to act as an airplane but failed and landed hard on the floor losing all the
  3. Hi everybody, hope that everyone is fine and safe. While I'm slowly slowly crawling towards the finishing line with my current project (Zvezda Tiger M w/Arbalet) I will start this little thingie, just to stay in the flow. It's one of the newer kits of Ace and I really look forward to building it, I really like the Ace kits. Before I begin let's have a look what's inside the box: Typical for Ace kits are the very small and delicate detail parts - this is going to be fun! Most likely I will build the
  4. Hi everybody, after a cursed and protracted build I am happy to show you the finished Tiger, albeit I am not happy with the result. Too many mistakes and too many problems made it hard not to throw it into the bin. Please don't get me wrong, I do not complain about the kit. It is a little gem, it is just my obvious and blatant lack of skills that kept me from doing the kit justice. For anybody interested, here is the WIP. Enough said, here she is. Because of the problems I had with the green pattern I chose to represent a dusty vehicle, mainly to cover
  5. Hi everybody, parallel to Zvezda's GAZ Tiger M - which came to a stll - I started his little brother in 1/72 of Ace. This is what you get in the box: Very nicely moulded parts - I hope you can see some details in the next pic. The kit also contains the bonnet for the "M" version. Instructions 3 camouflage versions More to come soon! Thanks for looking. Have a nice day Nick
  6. A Bofors 37mm from Ace, 40mm Bofors on an English carriage and a Flak 36 with the latter two from Zvezda. A quick little project between one that wasn't and one that probably won't be.
  7. The International Resin Modellers Association (IRMA) is to release a 1/72nd Gloster E.1/44 Ace resin kit - ref. 16 British single-engine successor to the Gloster E.28/39 Pioneer - 1947 Source: http://internationalresinmodellers.com/irma_on-line_store V.P.
  8. The last of my recently built Soviet trifecta. This little BTR is the 1:72 kit by ACE. It is a beautiful kit, but a bit tricky to build. Some of the structures (e.g., smoke grenade rack) are multi-piece PE, all grab handles are made from bent wires, parts have to measured and adjusted to ensure proper fit, and the suspension took a very long time. This is essentially a short-run kit, but for once I felt like I was modeling and not just assembling. I've mentioned it elsehwere, an I'll say it again. I really like ACE's plastic. It reacts quite well to Tamiya Extra Thin, and disolving and t
  9. #34/2016 After some pause a new 1/48 vehicle in-between by my dad ACE kit, painted with Gunze, Tamiya and Vallejo Initially I only wanted to try out "Precision Ice and Snow" on my dad´s model. But then I thought why not try out a little vignette. Done this for the first time. Took about an hour. Found a piece of panel wood. The rills on the backside matched the track width of the vehicle, so I decided to do a snowy field road. Used some gravel, grass and bushes (leftovers of our former model train phase) and fixed it to the panel with white glue.
  10. This is my dad´s next armour project, the little BA-20 from the Ukranian manufacturer ACE. There are better kits but also worse :-) Gonna get a winter dress, stay tuned
  11. Let's have a look at the following Ebay offers: http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/1-48-ACE-DASSAULT-RA...=item414f8fd970 http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/1-48-ACE-RAFALE-B-AR...=item3effce1f85 A Korean reboxing from the 1/48th Revell kits. Anyway the price - P&P incl. - is rather attractive respectively £25.86 and £17.45! Also a Rafale C mixing the B and the M parts! - ref.1203 - Rafale M - ref.1205 - Rafale B - ref.1206 - Rafale C V.P.

  13. #33/2015 After the Autoblinda and the 38(t), here´s my dad´s newest quarterscale WW2 vehicle. Decided to do something a bit different. Used the new Tamiya kit and made an AA truck out of it. The Flak is from ACE, the flak base from gaso.line, the wooden "outline" on the cargo board are matchsticks. DAK palmtree decals from the sparebox.
  14. Hi gents; I thought I might have a change of scenery for my third build for this GB so I chose a car; the ACE Citroën 11CV - in the Gentleman's Scale, of course. The father of my childhood best mates owned one of these - an exotic rarity in the 1970s - and it remains fondly in my memory as a classically beautiful car. I always imagined that one day I would own one myself, but experience proved me a dangerous liability when placed in proximity with motorised transport, so I never actually learned to drive... however thanks to the Eastern European model manufacturing industry I can have one of
  15. Just to prove that I occasionally complete models, and not just natter on about them, below please find photographs of my latest completed model. As the title indicates, this is the nice little Academy P-39N/Q in 1/72nd scale. I have finished it as a P-39Q in the markings of Grigoriy Andreyevich Rechkalov, the third-ranking Soviet ace, twice a Hero of the Soviet Union, with some 56 victories, most of them on the "Kobra". The kit went together very easily, with little or no filling needed, and I think it looks the part of an Airacobra. I chose to weather this a little, but not too much, as this

  19. After the Panther wanted something simple so picked out the Ace P-51. This is the early cannon armed Allison Engined Mustang. The ACE kit is a Korean boxing of the Accurate Miniatures kit, and is nice and simple As is normal work starts with the cockpit - first the instrument panel Then built up the cockpit and sidewalls Fitted the fuselage halves together then slotted the instrument panel in from the front Finally fitted the Allison engine nose, and filled the small gaps with some Mr Dissolved Putty, then sanded back Peter
