  1. My Carro-Veloce scratchbuild has been gathering dust for a while now, but I’d always intended to build a diorama and figures for it. Having completed a few kit builds while I procrastinated and finally consigned a troublesome racing car kit to the “shelf of shame” where it’ll reside for a bit, I’ve decided to return to the scratchbuild arena and get this little tankette completed. There are two very different components to deal with – scratchbuilt/sculpted figures and diorama, so I’ll start two threads – this one and one in the figures section. As it’s 1:16 scale and I don’t have a great deal of display space, the plan is for a very tight little vignette. One of the reference images I used in the build showed an exhausted tank crew member taking a well-earned rest, sitting against the back of the vehicle. I’ve decided to add a second, standing figure and move the sitter to the side of the vehicle. It’ll be parked up on a dusty road and as a bit of background vertical interest, I did an image search for Italian road-side shrines. As a result, I knocked this up from scraps of HIPS foam board, with the stonework pressed, pushed and scraped into the face using a variety of pointy tools. For the base itself, I used a section of cork tile, cutting and scraping out a pair of ditches, adding a background dyke and underlying sculpting for the uneven road ruts using building insulation. These were all PVA’d in place and chunks of cork and insulation were scattered around the base of the dyke. The road will get a rough coat of building filler and the cork tile will be fixed onto a piece of wood – it has a sticky backing which is very helpful. I stuck the tile onto a scrap of chipboard, slathered a load of squeezy tube filler all over the roadway and dragged my fingers across it to replicate the trafficked surface. Once dry, I dribbled on some drops of diluted PVA and sieved a load of tile grout over the whole thing, concentrating on the edge and central reservation ridges for the most part. I’d hoped to prime the whole thing grey, but realised I’d run out so I used the last few squirts of black primer that I had. I broke out the airbrush and loaded it up with some Tamiya desert yellow and instantly regretted the black primer choice as it took ages to get decent coverage. I decided it was a bit too orange so sprayed some buff and deck tan over it in fairly random splotches. Flat earth went onto the ditches and dyke and grey/buff mix for the stones and the shrine. I’m not exactly delighted with the roadway and will dress it up quite a lot with washes, extra grout and stones etc. to hopefully improve matters. I applied light grey acrylic to the mortar joints on the shrine and applied a few slightly different grey/brown washes/filters to different stones. This was supplemented with some oil washes in various brown and black shades. Here’s how it’ll come together. I had to cut into the central reservation and rearmost road edge to get them levelled and avoid the tankette floating. There’ll be a bit of fixing and filling to these later.
  2. I do enjoy the occasional AFV and haven’t many German tanks in the collection, and so decided I must build a Hetzer. I knew it was derived from the Czech CMK 38 but a little research showed that there many many variants produced. In total about 1400 panzer 38(t)chassis were built and in every conceivable configuration from Bergepanzers through anti aircraft, self propelled guns and of course Jadgpanzers and Marder IIIs ( not I or II) There is also the 38(D) a German variant used for assault guns and antitank weapons. There are also lots of kits including some of the more unusual variants available. Seeing how we don’t seem to have that much Armour STGB proposals for 2022, I thought I’d start one. So the build would be anything built on an LT 35 or 38 chassis or a 36(t), 38(t) or 38(D) chassis or any proposed E-10 vehicle in any scale. I’m really leaning as I go the Swedish Stridsvagn m/41 and the Pansarbandvagn 301 would also qualify as both use licence built 38(t) chassis. 1. @Marklo * 2. @ColonelKrypton * 3. @Stef N. * 4. @Tim R-T-C * 5. @Corsairfoxfouruncle * 6. @Rob S * 7. @Robert Stuart 8. @Mig Eater * 9. @Adam Poultney* 10 @Orso* 11. @fittedkitchens* 12. @sardaukar 13. @f matthews* 14. @PlaStix* 15. @blimp * 16. @sampanzer* 17. @Threadbear* 18. @Jasper dog 19. @Mjwomack * 20. @Jinxman 21. @MARADER * 22. @Maddoxx77* 23. @StuartH 24. @Geo1966 25. @f matthews 26. @IanC* 27. @bigfoot * 27. @Maddoxx77 28. @Ned * denotes members who have reconfirmed or initially said they’d build a 38(t)
  3. For so many reasons I can’t resist this one. Almost but not quite the first prototype British tank, which its development led to Mother which in turn led to the MKI heavy tank and the rest as they say is history.
  4. This is the beast in question. Been sitting in the stash for four years now, so about time to get it built. The inevitable sprue shot. Apparently the hull is not quite correct so I’ll be working on that as per one or two threads in the AFV section, but otherwise it will be pretty much oob.
  5. Here now my Models of the old Matchbox/Rebox Revell. I purposely didn't improve anything, just experimented with painting and other techniques. I hope you like them 😊 The first model was a T-34
  6. The Revell boxing of these two classics. Just need to decide which colour scheme.
  7. My internets been on the fritz all Christmas Day so a belated post. Christmas Day 8:43 sprues 10:50 all parts cut off and fettled. Turret partially assembled and ready for paint. My secret weapon a can of Montana Black Morpheus, ( I bought Dumbo but it wouldn’t spray ) 11:20 painted and a sharpie used for the black on the road wheels. St Stephen’s Day (Boxing Day) 9:50 major assembly finished. Next up, attach the tracks, a bit of brush touch up then decals, white distemper and weathering.

  9. Morning all. This will be my first build: An ebay purchase, still sealed in its shrink wrap. Think this is the right catalogue info for it: Airfix Catalogue information: Series: 2 First Issued: 1970 Catalogue Ref - 7th Edition (1969): A205V Catalogue Ref - 8th Edition (1970): A205V Catalogue Ref - 9th Edition (1971): A205V Catalogue Ref - 10th Edition (1973): 02305-8 I have the 1973 boxing judging by the box number and artwork. Contents This will be built as an early(ish) Mk2 as this is what the kit depicts. The chieftain went through many upgrades during it's service life but I'd really like an early one to go with several cromwell resin kits I have of later versions. This is my reference pile - can you tell I rather like chieftains? I'll be using these add ons. The matador set is to convert it to a Mk 3 which I won't be doing, but a couple of the bits will be needed. The wee friends running gear set replaces the horrible vinyl tracks and corrects (in my opinion) the one main failing of the kit - the strange multi-ridged roadwheels. I've built this kit before (as a later version), so have some idea of the challenges the build will throw up. The main issue is the fit of the roof top so I'll be paying special attention to that! Looking forward to making a start. Roll on the weekend! All the best Ben
  10. And here we go again. Yes, it's yet another kreiger scratchbuild. No, as usual I'm not quite sure how it's going to turn out, but I do have a plan (subject to change as always). Consider the battlefield. After the flash bangs and screaming is over, there is always kit to be recovered for salvage or repair. Who does that job? Most model builders focus on the flash bang stuff, but I thought I'd try a bit of recovery work. Hover, tracks or wheels? Of the three I thought the track made the best sense, they should handle most terrains, and a crane doesn't really work in hover mode. So lets start with a box of bits and haul out some T-54 parts. A 1/35th Trumpeter T-54 chassis. Though I've done a cut'n'shut and got rid of a roadwheel mount each side. So we're down to eight instead of ten. Why? well it makes it shorter, and I only have eight wheels anyway! So they're single wheels on each axle and not in pairs. Plus I'm not using the original tracks, pairs would be too wide for them. The plastic is quite soft to cut, BTW. And this is where I ended up. The drive sprocket (at the rear here) is from a Sherman derivative, The front idler wheel is made from two disparate parts and the tracks are also sourced from a Sherman type. If memory serves it was an Italeri recovery Tank. An overview shows what I have in mind. I think the engine decking is ex King tiger. The crane was on a multiwheeled Kibri truck. The crane needs to be on a raised platform. That will be next up. The vehicle then needs to be generally 'kreigered' to make it fit in to that world. As always, comments are very welcome. Thanks for looking, Pete.
  11. Hello Fellow modelers ... We have Multiple successful Single type Builds for Armor. The M3/M4 last year. The Panzer IV, Mk.VI Tger, and Patton S.T. builds earlier this year. Currently we have the T-54/55 build running. With T-34 & Panther Mk.V next year. Let me ask you this question? Would there be any interest in a Group Build of British Armored Fighting Vehicles ? This would most likely be in 2020 or later so plenty of time to gather everything together. This would cover From 1945 to present and each has countless variants and progeny to offer up as options. Im just curious as it seems we have interest in both German, US , and Soviet Armor. However no one has offered up British Armor ? I’m proposing this as a group build that will cover British Armored Fighting Vehicles and Tanks. This would incorporate all British Armor produced and operated by any country from January 1st 1945 to the Present day. This of course would include both UK & Commonwealth units. Since this build has gone through a few rewrites. As a result of this I've been asked to clarify the rules. To Clarify the restrictions or rules for what is allowed this is what is allowed. A.) The Vehicle of choice would need to be operated By the British military, Commonwealth, or others post January 1st, 1945. To clarify things. This includes AFV’s and Tanks procured, built, or used in WW2. If they saw use after January 1st 1945 they are good to go. So for example a Cromwell, Comet, or Churchill built in WW2. If the vehicle type was used after the 01/01/1945 it counts, and can be used in the build. This also includes tanks that were built in WW2 and used into the Korean war. This group build does also include specialized vehicles that didn't originate as an Armored Vehicle originally. Which includes jeeps, lorries, and Technicals that have been field improvised with armor and armament. Lorry soft-skins that have some form of defensive armament. They do transport troops so in a sense are APC’s if they have armor and/or armament ? Mine resistant Armored personnel MRAP’s vehicles are included. Specialized vehicles operated by Special units are ok if they have armor and armament. So long as any of these were made, procured, designed, or used post January 1st 1945. Im sure there were plenty of types built and used during World War Two that were also operated by the British and Commonwealth after the war for varying lengths of times. Again if you or anyone else is interested but are not sure please contact me. I would be glad to research and give you an answer. Im always looking for input and help so please feel free to offer ideas and/or constructive criticism. I realize this might upset some of the original joiners of this group build. That isnt my intention. I asked for input and votes earlier towards this idea. The results are in and of those who voted this was how the votes tallied out. Final count was 4 votes in favor of inclusion of all AFV/APC. And 2 votes of inclusion of all “C” Type tanks. This is 6 of 13 members. Less than 50%, however it seems no one else voted. So I will incorporate both post 1945. “ALL SCALES ALLOWED” Now some quick ideas for the qualifying variants. Heres an Airfix 1/72 centurion kit. Another one is this Centurion in Australian service. Then heres a quick look at a couple of kits of the Chieftains. First up is this Chieftain Mk.2 from Takom. And an interesting option with the Berlin Camouflage is Takom’s Mk.10. Next up is a Tamiya Challenger Mk.1. and a Tamiya Challenger 2 As there are a substantial number of Variants, Versions, and Prototypes just in British service I cant write down all of them. If anyone knows of a type they would like to build. That or an offshoot that they are not sure about please ask ? I will investigate and let you know. 🔺-Standard build rules apply such as the 25% rule. 🔻If you are using individual track links talk to me as i consider those to be a kit in there own right. 🔻I will hold the same absolute here as I did with my Patton build. NO WHIF’S - there are so many versions and sub-types of these that we dont need paper/imaginary tanks. 🔹 I will consider working prototypes so long as they aren't paper projects. A paper project is just another form of whif to me. please ask i will research and advise. 🔶 = I am happy to announce the Two Co-hosts will be Threadbear and PantherII. INTERESTED MEMBERS 🔶1.

  12. Acrylic Primer Set (PS01) LifeColor via The Airbrush Company You may prime your models or not – it's a choice that we make with some pros and cons on either side, but generally speaking I fall into the category of being a modeller that primes my models. I feel it gives a standard colour and texture over which to paint your top coats, shows up imperfections that might need some attention, and generally gives the model a key onto which you add your next layers. This brings with it some requirements for a good primer. I prefer using a primer that is sandable, and adheres well to the plastic so it doesn't pull off the paint when you remove any masking. I also spray my primers predominantly, so the ability to run them through an airbrush is also a must. This new boxed set from LifeColor is mainly aimed at armour modellers judging by the colours, but as I only had an aircraft fuselage to play around with them, that's what you get! The paints arrive in the standard box with the six colours all held in a card insert. The bottles are 22ml and have black screw caps keeping the paint in and new labels with their name and number at bottom centre. Opening up the lids you can see what they mean, as it is immediately obvious that they are pigment rich, and thicker than the usual consistency of LC paints, as evidenced by the slow sinking of my glass mixing beads into the pots. In the set you get the following 6 colours: BC01 Primer Panzer Dark Grey BC02 Primer Red Brown BC03 Primer Olive Drab BC04 Primer Tank Interior BC05 Primer Burned Base BC06 Primer Panzer Yellow Airbrush Use The thickness of the paint has a knock-on effect of requiring more thinners to get it to spray through an airbrush (my nozzle is 0.2mm), and clean-up is extended slightly due to the pigment content. I got the mix a bit wrong in the Burned Base, which explains the slightly spitty demarcation with the Tank Interior White. It's easily corrected with a bit more thinner though, and for this review I used Ultimate Thinners, as usual. When thinned correctly it sprays well and covers well, as you'd expect with the whitish shade of Tank Interior White requiring a little extra care initially to mist on the primer with heavier coats to follow. Ignoring clean-up between the colours, there was little to slow me down and my ad hoc thinning method (i.e. "that looks about right") seemed suitable. Adhesion seems good from the outset and upon trying the aggressive masking, burnishing and ripping off the tape again there was almost no paint removed despite my best attempts. The paint that was removed appeared to have possibly had its adhesion reduced by some exterior factor – possibly a little oil from my fingers. Fresh paint didn't fare too well against a sanding stick and it peeled off rather than sanded off. After the paint had cured overnight on a warm day (21oc) however it reacted better to sanding sponges, but was still a little prone to tearing with sanding sticks of coarser grades that had no cushioning layers behind the abrasive. Saying all that, you're a lot less likely to need to sand seams with AFV models, which is where these paints are aimed. Brush Painting This was a bit of a novelty for me, as I'm a dyed-in-the-wool airbrush user. I painted the insides of the fuselage halves with an AMMO #6 flat brush without thinning, and was very pleased with the results. The paint goes on very smoothly and brush marks don't seem to be much of an issue. Whether there's an element of self-levelling in the formulation I can't say for certain, but the effect suggests that there may be. Only the Tank Interior White, which is actually a slightly off-white with a hint of yellow-brown needed a second coat to achieve even partial coverage with a brush. I would have added a third coat if I was actually building the model rather than just testing the paint. The Dark Yellow also needed a second coat, but would not need another one on the basis you would be painting over it. I'm sure a veteran brush-painter could make a better job of it, and the fact that I was painting around lots of internal ribs didn't help, but overall I'm quite impressed with the quality of finish. I'm not going to throw out my airbrushes just yet mind you! Conclusion LifeColor paints are good acrylics and clean up with water, Ultimate Airbrush Cleaner or their own thinners. If you're not using it on subjects that may need further sanding after application, they're a good base for your work. Airbrush or brush painting gives a good finish, and using a similar shade primer to your top coat allows greater freedom to achieve the results you're after. Highly recommended.

  13. an AN/MPQ -53 radar unit? Now I have ordered some kits to start off my stash but in the mean time I was getting bored. BlackMax12's posting was very inspiring and his fine pictures were very useful as there isnt a great deal of info' out there to be had. Most of the calculations were based on comparing the unit with its tractors as their sizes are available. It's as close to a 1/72 as I could make it . Resources were limited but time and loads of scrap balsa were available Progress was fine to begin with until it all went wrong and went in the bin. Second effort started better, took a while but ended up in multiple sandings and then first coat of primer to show all the flaws. Usually I work in bare wood but at the suggestion of others on my Centurion tank I was going to pain this one. and there were loads Lots of filler, and loads more sanding, then priming, then more sanding, more filling, more sanding and I'm wondering why I decided to paint it in the fisrt place. More primer was coming off than stuck on ! Frustrating and time for a rest. See you all soon
  14. Hey there, It's been a while since a have made a post... well, here I'm with a small beast: a Stug IV from Italeri, 1/35 scale. Is the first tank that I make since I was a little boy, and it is very grateful to do, I mean, I use to make Airplanes and when you have the freedom to make a more "dirty" work it feels good. The kit is really good, it comes with some PE parts an a metal canon barrel, separated track links, and a really good details in general. I had only added an MG34 from Dragon to upgrade him. For about 30€ is a very recomendable kit. And, here is he:
  15. German WWII Clamps & Tie Downs and Straps (STEEL 36362 & 36369) 1:35 Eduard One of the shortcuts that many AFV model manufacturers take is to simplify the tie-downs and clamps that fix the pioneer tools and barrel cleaning rods etc. to the hull of your model. Often they're just blocks moulded to the tool, and that detracts somewhat from the realism that you can achieve with your model. Similarly, everything that is carried on the outside of a vehicle has to be lashed to it in order to stop it from bouncing off when you pass over the first shell-hole. This is the detail that is seldom depicted in a model, and unless you wanted to scratchbuild it all, it's hard to get hold of. Well – you're in luck. These new sets from Eduard will allow you to up the detail without needing to fork out for a complete set for your latest creation. As usual with Eduard's Photo-Etch (PE) and Mask sets, they arrive in a flat resealable package, with a white backing card protecting the contents and the instructions that are sandwiched between. German WWII Clamps (36362) This brass set contains fifteen clamps for shafts of tools, with the cam-lock that tightens them against the tool to prevent them working loose. The base is folded up and the cam is fitted to the rear, simulating the cam, while the last segment of the base goes to form the clamp that latches into the other end of the base. Twelve Lockable towing eye tie-downs are also included, and a further eight cable tidies with butterfly closures a supplied to keep the rest of the towing cables in place. Tie-Downs and Straps German STEEL (36369) In case you don't already know, these are Photo-Etch (PE) steel, and because of their strength they can be etched from thinner material, which improves realism and flexibility in one sitting. Coupled with the new painting method that adds perceived extra depth to the buckles and other furniture by shading, they are more realistic looking and will drape better than regular brass PE. You get fourteen belts of different styles, seven in black, five in red, and two in tan for a bit of variation. The buckles and clasps are all nickel plated, and you'll be pleased to hear that the belts have been printed on both sides, so if doesn't matter if you can see underneath. There are no instructions, as they're designed for you to lash everything down, and there's no decree issued about what goes where when it comes to personal equipment storage on a tank of armoured vehicle.

  16. Somebody found a very interesting add in some magazine Link to the source of original news By the way, artwork of Vauxhall is simply stunning, isn't it?
  17. Hello all. This is my first GB entry. I'm a bit late, but at least I made it on time. This model have some small story behind it. Usually such vehicle would not be in my field of interest, but a few years ago I was playing a World of Tanks, around five I think, and I had so much fun with this vehicle. Around this time a new model shop opened in my city. It was mostly a RC one, but it had a set of models from Mirage Hobby, so I decided to pick up this one. Unfortunately it was closed soon after that. Then I had noticed a GB proposition, I looked through my stash and and decided to join with it. There is a story of tank taken from instruction. Other sources also mentions, that designers were caught into Stalin purge, and incomplete hulls were left. Model have vinyl tracks, and surprisingly, a complete interior with possibility to open hatches. However, I'm not a fun of opening models, also it would demand more work with for example thinning armour plates and so on, so I have decided to make a it simple, relaxing built it by making it fully closed. I'm not planning to add any sets (do any exist anyway?), but I will try improve some details like ventilation net over engine compartment. Surprisingly, in comparison to newer Mirage Hobby models, I haven't noticed any sink holes so far. I have jest started and glued hull and front drive wheels. My English still isn't perfect to say it lightly, feel free to correct me. I will improve quality of photos too.
  18. I don't think there is need to make a separate thread for each new plastic model in 1/72, because it is not that popular like aircraft, so I will run one thread to aforementioned company.

  19. Been modelling for a few years now. Usually aircraft, although I did build a T34/85 early on - nothing to write home about I'm afraid. But I've always wondered what the acronym 'AFV' stands for? My guess is 'Armoured Fighting Vehicle'. But please enlighten me? I love the weathering work you armour boys do BTW, fantastic. I rekon the armour boys show off some amazing skills in their work. I like to look at it. But personally, I've always been fascinated by aircraft. In the main, military, but I do love a Constellation. Anyway - what does AFV mean?
  20. I've started this topic as a place to post any current works in progress. Tamiya's venerable PzII. This one's nearly done and should be finished soon. Filters, pastels, some extra stowage and crew then I'll call it done. Thanks for looking!
  21. So what Revell prepared for tanks in gentlemen scale?

  24. Hi there! Just photographed my new model) I didn't work a lot on it, made only mantlet and searchlight covers and machine-gun shield. Hope you'll like it!
  25. Ok this was something I originally suggested way back in 2013 but then it was just for the airforce, this was a bit restrictive. It got into this years vote and I had completely forgotten about it and didnt remove the earlier restrictions. But it seems like there is still a lot of interest in this so its now opened up completely. So if it was made in Italy or wore the Italian colours then bring it along. I have always liked the flare and passion the Italians put into their designs and if that wasnt enough then add a few more cylinders or even an extra engine!! Which would you rather listen to a Ferrari 250GTO a Lamborghini Miura or a 60s Renault or 2CV!! So lets go for a drive around Tuscany, a cruse over Lake Como, sail the Tyrrhenian Sea, or a flight along the Amafi Coast. Lets live the good life in 2016! ok the list..... 1, trickyrich - Host 2, Mitch K 3, vppelt68 4, JOCKNEY 5, Lex77 6, CliffB 7, Giorgio N 8, Prenton 9, milktrip 10, Arniec - Co-Host 11, Bonhoff 12, Caerbannog 13, Paul J 14, swat11 15, TallPaul 16, Chimpion 17, Doug Rogers 18, hgbn 19, feoffee2 20, Ettore 21, SleeperService 22, iJones 23, Shermaniac 24, Mitch K 25, maltadefender 26, JackG 27, RobG 28, 06/24 29, Enzo Matrix 30, pinetree_fella 31, Hardtarget 32, SAU 33, Blitz23 34, usetherudders 35, wellzy 36, wimbledon99
