  1. Time to start a new build. After contemplating kits in my stash for a week I have decided to go with Asuka's 1/35 M32B1 Recovery tank. I have the Academy 1/35 M36 kit that has the drivers compartment/ transmission etc. in it and will kit bash it to fit this build. I am also considering adding an engine bay to this build as well. I will use online references and also Tankograds Book on this vehicle for my build. The plan is to depict a WW2 era vehicle. I think I have the Star Decals set for this too. I may replace the tracks with aftermarket if paint doesn't stick to the rubber ones.
  2. I'm short of time at the moment, but I will try to do something with this. I'm well out of my comfort zone here, so it'll be OOB - constructive criticism is fine, but I'm not getting into rivet counting. This is the kit:
  3. Hello all! I am straying into unknown territory here, and have recently dabbled with the Asuka Sherman Firefly VC in 1/35 scale. Military vehicles are not a genre I am familiar with, so there may well be some glaring errors with this (I recall making a Tamiya motorbike and side car with the Red Cross markings, but added the machine gun too for example). I had an absolute bundle of fun with this, I was truly amazed at how well it went together, quite a few parts did not even need glue the fit was so snug. The kit itself had 4 options, and there were call-outs to highlight what bits were needed for which one. The biggest problem I had was that a lot of the information was in Japanese, with not much translation. The upshot was that I had to guess on quite a few bits. Weathering is not a strong point of mine, so it is seen here fresh from the carwash. I also was unsure about how to deal with the tracks. They were stuck together with CA gel, and they stuck like a limpet, which was one surprise, but the instructions suggested not using enamel or acrylic paints on them, so as I had nothing else, I have left them black - forgive me! The kit was brush painted with Humbrol enamel paints, and they worked a treat. This was intentionally a fun build while I recovered from an operation, but it was just interesting enough to keep me going. I can highly recommend this brand, I was highly impressed. One thing I must say, there were some incredibly small bits to this! Thanks for looking Ray
