  1. Hi all, I don't normally build AFVs but gave this one a go for the Ground Attack GB here on the forum. The build thread is here but to recap: Kit: Trumpeter 07221 AS-90 SPG Scale: 1/72 Build: Out of box Paints: Halfords plastic primer, Tamiya & Revell acrylics, Klear, Flory Models Wash, Oils, W&N Matt Varnish Extras: Value Gear Details stowage bits donated by good friend Pat. It's a super little kit packed with detail and I think the stowage really helps bring it to life. The only downside are the individual link tracks made out of some kind of soft plastic - there's not enough of them to make up two full tracks so there are gaps hidden by the side skirts. But had lots of fun and great to try out new genres that aren't planes or rotors. 1_72_Trumpeter_AS-90_Done_ (9) by Dermot Moriarty, on Flickr 1_72_Trumpeter_AS-90_Done_ (14) by Dermot Moriarty, on Flickr 1_72_Trumpeter_AS-90_Done_ (13) by Dermot Moriarty, on Flickr 1_72_Trumpeter_AS-90_Done_ (8) by Dermot Moriarty, on Flickr 1_72_Trumpeter_AS-90_Done_ (12) by Dermot Moriarty, on Flickr 1_72_Trumpeter_AS-90_Done_ (10) by Dermot Moriarty, on Flickr Thanks for looking and happy modelling. All the best, Dermot
  2. Hi all and jumping in with this one for something a bit different.. Trumpeter_AS-90_Boxtop by Dermot Moriarty, on Flickr What's in the box.. Trumpeter_AS-90_contents by Dermot Moriarty, on Flickr Customary hull-beside-paint-jar size picture Trumpeter_AS-90_hull_turret by Dermot Moriarty, on Flickr Thanks for looking, good luck with your builds! All the best, Dermot
  3. I haven't had much luck finding images of the AS-90 on operations or exercises online, most searches turn up photos of about 10+ models for every one of a real example. What I'm seeking is images that feature typical stowage layouts and weathering. Both Middle-East or European theatre schemes are fine. Thanks in advance for any help.
  4. AS-90 Side Skirt set 1:35 Tetra Model Works This is the second set for the venerable Trumpeter 1:35 AS-90 155mm SPG from Tetra Model Works. This set contains a single sheet of relief etched brass and a sheet of rubberised plastic. The purpose of the set is to completely replace the kits side skirts. In addition to the skirts, which come with the illusion of separate hangers, for which you have to be very careful in folding along the whole length, you also get the front and rear mudguards. Now you can either use the brass mud flaps or the rubberised plastic, or even a combination of the two. Using both together means you can have a strong and bendable unit with just the lower edge able to flap like the real things, or if you use just the rubber material you can fold them away, in the case of the rear flaps. All the hooks, brackets and clips are also included and there are rubber parts for the front and rear end sections of the skirts, making the model even more realistic. Conclusion This is a superb and very useful set which can be used in conjunction with the large detail set, reviewed HERE, or on its own. The addition of the rubber parts gives the model that extra bit of detail not normally seen on a model, allowing even the most intermediate of modeller to achieve a great look.

  5. AS-90 155mm SPG Detail set 1:35 Tetra Model Works The Trumpeter 1:35 AS-90 155mm Self Propelled Gun has been out for nearly 15 years now, so it’s good to see that it’s still getting attention by the aftermarket companies. This set is for the general detail; the other set released alongside it will be reviewed separately HERE, and contains two sheets of relief etched brass. What sets this detail set above some others is the beautifully laid out and easy to read instructions, which show exactly where the completed parts are meant to be fitted, unlike some other companies. Whilst the majority of parts on the sheets are for the smaller items, such as brackets, headlight guards, latches, clamps and hinges, there are some important additions. The thing that most modellers moaned about with the kit si the lack of stowage basket on the rear turret roof, well this in included in this set, along with new stowage boxes, ID box and grille for the rear of the turret, new lids for the turrets side bins. Then there are the engine intake grilles, air conditioner grille, smoke discharge plate and brackets, new ammunition stowage for the GPMG boxes, which also receives a new ammo box and ammunition, and the faces of all the viewing ports. There doesn’t appear to be much of the kit detail to be removed for the PE, mainly due to the fact the parts weren’t included in the kit so fitting is pretty easy. That said, some of the folding is a little fiddly as it is in most PE sets, and some parts need to be indented by use a ball point pen in one side, particularly the louvers on the grilles over the air conditioner box. Conclusion Given that the AS-90 kit has been out some time now, it’s great to revisit it with the release of this very nice set from Tetra Model Works. With very few complex bends or folds it should be useable by all but the newest modellers and would be a good introduction to the art of using etched brass. The details contained in the set do help to improve the somewhat clunky look that of the styrene parts, plus adding some that was completely missing, and will help make a good looking model into a great one.

  6. Well she's arrived In my very early modelling days this was my first ever armour build, needless to say it ended up in the bin, now however, older but non the wiser, this will also be a first in many ways, It'll be the first time I have used any after market accessories to detail my kits The etch, and AM barrel set up Usual OOB shots of sprue A lovely set of tracks if I do say so So waiting on arrival of etch and barrel so for now I'll just be researching the Nasty. Im undecided as to weather I'm going for the all over green, green and black or even the desert scheme yet, im slightly favouring the green n black ATM.....cut this could change hourly.. Also toying with the idea of having the rear crew door movable.... And would maybe like the crew graffiti of "NASTY" somewhere, but will see about weathering and stuff like that at the end More to come as and when Any comments and reference you guys have will be very greatfully appreciated Thanks for now Mark
