  1. Will start this project shortly after I finish the 1/24 Dodge Charger from the Fast & Furious film my daughter and son in law gave me for Christmas. The Panzer has been loft insulation for several years now so it's time it saw day light, I need to do some research before starting as the right up in the box say's it is portrayed in markings from the Polish campaign but I have read somewhere that the bridge conversions were not carried out until 1940 and there not many of them. Those that were used apparently with the 7th Panzer division in the French invasion so if anyone has any info
  2. Can't resist a blitzbuild. I had this Bronco figure in the boneyard and after some wikipedia-ing I found out about this WAC unit. "No mail, low morale" was the motto of the US 6888th Central Postal Directory Battalion, the only American all black, all female unit to serve in Europe during WW2. I needed a different cap and dug through all my spares to find one. The kit is very detailed. I built the two British figures (ATS and RAF) that came with the set and put them in a Blitz diorama a few years ago.
  3. I'm in with a 1/32 Kittyhawk OV-10D Bronco with markings for VMO-1 or VMO-2 from Desert Storm. I've also got a fair amount of after-market to go with it: And decals from Caracal: I'm not quite sure on the final markings yet - looking at the references it seems that most of the OV-10s left the US in standard 3-tone camouflage or grey but them were repainted into two-tone brown with grey under-surfaces. More on that to follow. I've also bought this: With all of the extras and the vague-ness
  4. Sand A Sturmgeschütz III Ausf D, in North Africa Four of these were sent to help Rommel: one sank on the way, two were captured. And of the fourth? I know not? Of the captured examples, one survives and was restored to running condition, AM stuff I doubt I'll represent the Desert Fox, but some of the other figures here may make the build. The decals are, possibly, overkill, since the kit contains all that are needed.
  5. On a bit of a roll with submarines. Here is my attempt at the Bronco Models 1:350 kit of the USS Seawolf SSN-21. Very simple to build, but made a bit challenging with a very hard black plastic. The decal placement diagram was also pretty much useless. Terrible stand as well, which I will need to do something about. That being said, ended up ok as a relaxing build. Brush painted with Tamiya and Italeri acrylics and photographed in the very non-maritime environment of my backyard. Thanks for looking.
  6. Picked this up as a way of getting back to the bench after a long dry period in 2020. Brush painted with Tamiya Acrylics, finished with a brush painted coat of floor polish. Base is an old piece of scrap wood (I think it was from an old chopping board that split) with a couple of coatings of decking oil. Build thread (limited that it is) can be found here. thanks for looking.
  7. My next armour project arrived in the mail today. Tamiya 1:48 quick build this ain't! Looking forward to getting started, this will take longer I think than some of the recent kits I have built. Anyone know what the British markings are?
  8. Here is my first ever 1/350 scale model. Bronco models 1/350 Song type 039 Submarine. The Type 039 submarine (NATO reporting name: Song-class) is a class of diesel-electric submarines built for the Chinese PLA Navy. The class is the first diesel-electric submarine to be fully developed within China and also the first Chinese diesel-electric submarine to use the modern teardrop hull shape. Apart from a scratch built 1/1200 scale Oberon class built in my teens, this is also my first ever model of a Submarine. The Bronco kit is quite basic but in my opinion has good genera
  9. So with work on the Vosper continuing, and a couple of other "offline" projects going on (each of which will get an RFI), I decided to start my first ever venture into 1/350 scale maritime modelling. I have great ambitions for this scale, having watched others on here producing superb examples, @robgizlu, @Ex-FAAWAFU, @beefy66, @Courageous, @longshanks and @Nick Charnock to name just a few. You have all conspired to inspire me into this scale, so in short, this is your fault! I wanted a quick subject - is there such a thing as a quick Terry build I hear you ask? Well, surely a 1/35
  10. This is my conversion of Academy's 1/72 North American OV-10D to the earlier YOV-10D Night Observation Gunship System (NOGS). 2 OV-10A's, 152660 and 155395 (note there is one of many typos in the Squadron Gunships book with lists 155660 in one place and 152660 in others). These had a lengthened nose with an FLIR turret and the sponsons removed and an M-197 20mm Gatling gun turret added. There is a MPC kit purporting to be of the YOV-10D but it is inaccurate as far as the M-197 and FLIR turrets and is pretty crude so I set it aside and used the Academy kit instead. I did use the M-197 mount fr
  11. Uh oh...new obsession I'll never finish anything.....
  12. OK here's my KUTA build. Started at the beginning of the year and flew as a build but has been languishing ever since, mainly due to a couple of reasons. firstly being tail heavy - which the kit warns about and says to weight the nose - I did (by gluing some ball bearings in and also some just behind the cockpit) but obviously not enough. This means I'm going to have to make her 'in flight' which will be a pain. Secondly there's an awful join just behind the cockpit area, which I'm not entirely sure how to fill - given there will be the multi-piece clear parts to attach.
  13. Having recently posted an A13 in the RFI section, I was keen to have another go at one of these nice little models from Bronco. I’ve had this in the stash for a number of years now, having picked it up for a bargain price at the Saumur model show. I say bargain because not only was the price good, but it came with two sets of Miniart figures, all for the desert, which was handy as I intend to finish this as a North Africa based tank. This was one of the later issues of Bronco’s A13 and I’m glad to say that they made some modifications, such as individual link tracks and corre
  14. Hallo again Now I started a new field. Tank and trucks from WW2. Most of them German and Russian. Moderns will be from the IDF. It is a totally different approach in opposition to aircraft modelling, which I do for 3 decades already. I want to show this models, as new from the workshop. Not battle used. Just minor weathering. Happy modelling
  15. Good morning (or whatever) and happy new year all, here I am with another attempt at a Work in Progress... emphasis on progress. No, emphasis on "attempt"! It is, in case you haven't already figured it out, the Bronco 1/35 Piper L-4 Cub (aka Grasshopper). A friend of mine recently purchased an actual (1:1 scale) Piper Cub, and enlisted me to help him truck it to its new home in Maine. You see, in a former life, I went to school to get my aircraft mechanic's license, and had some involvement in "real" airplanes. (He went to school to become a professional pilot, which he is. So
  16. Don't expect me to pronounce that correctly ... It is one of these ... a German gun on a French (Hotchkiss) chassis. The Germans made about 24 of these and lost them all in the Falaise Pocket. There is a film of Rommel inspecting a group of these here: Note: That film shows various H-39 chassis with three different guns. I think the crews in this movie are wearing Sumpfmuster 44 camouflage tops. Wish I knew, how to reproduce that?
  17. My set was second hand and missing the RAF Leading Aircraft Woman, here are the other three.

  18. Evening all. With my efforts to complete the on bench projects, I think I can call this one done. Just a small thing started to break up the painting monotony on the several AFV's to finish. Quick build, and paint job, so a nice one to do. One last thing to do, after I studied the images is a light dust coat on the stowage to blend it all together. Couldn't be bothered to dirty the AB tonight, so will lave to wait until I set up a paint session in a week or so. So here she is.
  19. A little something I threw together watching the Cricket World Cup the last two weeks. This is Bronco's 1/35 40mm Bofors gun. It's a good kit, well detailed and fitting but with some frustrating points. Some sections are over complicated with detail included that cannot be seen once completed or photo etch that could have been included as molded on detail with a loss of detail. Also make sure you read ahead in the instructions as parts often need to fit into others in steps down the road, if you mess up the alignment you will have trouble down the road. It would also be nice if Bronco included
  20. Afternoon all Managed some time this week, and decided on a change from all the projects......to start a new one.. Came across this on Ebay for a tenner with shipping, so couldn't resist. A standard 1936 saloon by Opel pressed into service and on the run in '45. Built some field applied luggage rack for the rear and roof rack. The kit overall for the price wasn't bad, but the wheels/tires with....get this 8, yes 8 parts were a little excessive just to get some tread detail. The front wheel connections to are something to be desired and unless you have Tamiya/Dragon mould skill
  21. I believe that this was Bronco’s second issue of an A13, and as such, it had the individual track links which were a whole lot better than the original (too short) rubber band offerings. I never did get around to correcting the engine deck, but I will with the two others that I’ve got in the stash. All in all, it’s quite a nice kit to build with not too many surprises. I finished it as a tank of the 10th Hussars, based in France in 1940. As far as I can remember, it was built OOTB and finished with Tamiya paints in a G3/G4 greens camouflage. The figure is from Hornet.
  22. OV-10A Bronco 1:72 Revell The Bronco was conceived as a light attack, long loiter aircraft of modest size, enabling it to operate from roads close to the combat zone. As so often seems the case, the final design turned out to be much larger and heavier due to the requirements of the avionics and ejection seats, thus limiting its use to conventional airfields. The twin boom aircraft first flew in 1965 and was destined to serve with the US Navy, Airforce and Marines as a replacement for the Cessna O-1 & O-2. The Marines were the first to take the OV-1

  25. Hi Everyone, I’ve not been posting completed models for a while although I managed to complete a bunch over the last year. Starting to catch up now. The first one is OV-10A Bronco in Vietnam markings of VAL-4. I have a mixed feeling about the kit and about the effort I did to get it completed. The kit can be assembled out of the box with moderate effort (only sponson to nacelle fit is really poor) and will definitely result in a decent model that would 100% look like a Bronco (it’s probably impossible to do a Bronco kit that would not look like a Bronco). But that works
