  1. Here is my attempt at the Academy Panzer II Ausf F “North Africa” completed as a tank captured by US troops in Tunisia. The kit was a delight to build, needed some modifications to better represent the actual tank. These included scratch building a storage locker and jerrycan rack as well as re-positioning the spare wheel. I brush painted with Vallejo paints, and used Mig Ammo Acrylic Wash for weathering. Aiming for a fairly weather beaten look, as that was the appearance in the photos I found of the actual tank. Build thread can be found here: And one in black and white: Thanks for looking!
  2. Moving on to planning my next project while the paint drys on my A9, I picked this up as a semi-impulse buy recently: I’ve been keen to build one since reading Robert Crisp’s amazing personal story of his experiences in the desert in WW II in his book Brazen Chariots. I suspect many on this site will be familiar with his life story (which is altogether extraordinary - see for example https://www.badassoftheweek.com/crisp). I am going to finish it in the other Caunter Scheme tank in the box (not Bellman!). I have Tamiya mixes for the silver-grey and slate from when I built the Tamiya 1:48 Matilda and Tilly a few years ago. I’m also going to use Vallejo ModelAir Portland Stone. As you can see I have the appropriate reading material to hand!
  3. I’ve been keen to build a Stuart in British colours since reading “Brazen Chariots” by Robert Crisp. My local hobby store has a restock and I managed to grab the Academy kit at a good price. Here is my attempt, pretty much out of the box other than a go a making more of rack for the cans at the back. I also had a go at brush painting a Caunter Scheme using some Tamiya mixes I made awhile ago and Vallejo acrylics. Weathered (a little too much) with Vallejo Model Washes. Build thread can be found here: According to the box the markings are for the 8th King’s Royal Irish Hussars, 7 Armoured Division, Sidi Rezegh, Libya, November 1941. Thanks for looking.
  4. Hi All, I have been working on this on and off for the last year as my first larger scale armour build and attempt at figure painting. Its a bit heavy handed in places but I'm pleased with it and has been good fun and learning along the way The kit is the Academy 1:35 last production version of the King Tiger with narrow transport tracks. One of the box options is for the much discussed Octopus camo scheme and as I really liked the look of this I thought I would give it a go. The kit does have decals for the rings which I had considered using, but they are a bit thinner than the rings appear on the photos so I decided to have a crack at spraying it instead. My method was to spray the green then use blu tack snakes and balls to mask for the yellow and paint the yellow centres in the rings by hand afterwards. You'll have to decide if you think it works, I can tell you though that putting a clear coat on to protect the green before masking made it a right PITA to get the blu tack to stay in place.... Anyway enough waffle, on with the pics - hope you like her and any C&CC appreciated as always, Stu
