  1. 250 StuG.III Ausf. F/8s were produced from September to December 1942. The F/8 made use of an improved hull design similar to that used for the Panzer III Ausf. J/L and had improved rear armour. This was the 8th version of Panzer III hulls, hence the designation 'F/8'. The hull had towing hook holes extending from side walls. 30mm thick plates of additional armour were bolted on to speed up the production line from October 1942. From the F/8 onwards, the 7.5 cm StuK 40 L/48 gun was standard until the very last of the Ausf. G. I'm thinking of making this Dragon kit as one of the on
  2. I have managed to drag a few over the finish line this past year despite life getting in the way at times. Every build was done in GBs. First one finished was mostly completed in 2019 in the T-55 STGB: Tamiya's 1/35 Tiran 5 The WIP can be found HERE The RFI can be found HERE The vignette photos can be found HERE Next was another tank - this time: Tamiya's 1/48 US Main Battle Tank M1A2 Abrams The WIP can be found HERE The RFI can be found HE
  3. This small scene was built as part of the D-Day GB. It features a Tiger 1 - Ausf.E (Late Production), Turret Number 313 of 3./s.Pz.Abt. 503 (3rd Company 503rd Heavy Tank Battalion) and a Hawker Typhoon Mk.Ib, ZY-Y of 247 Squadron. The Tiger - ‘313’ - would become famous as the one which was overturnd at Manneville during the Allied heavy bombing at the start of Operation 'Goodwood' on the 18 July 1944. Three of the crew actually survived that bombing. My version is modelled before that date while the detachment was still fighting against Allied tank forces during the battles around Caen. My
  4. I bought this kit a while back because it seemed like a lot of kit for £24! - and it is! It got a couple of good reviews and looked like a beast of a tank! The box seems full of plastic and you even get a bit of photoetch. The detail seems nice if a little soft in places. It even has individual track links as well as some rubber band ones. I cannot wait to get started next weekend! In the meantime I got the sprues washed in warm soapy water and some photos taken. Box art: I'll put the contents of the box photos in another post later on. Some informa
  5. This was my project for the MTO GB. It was a fun kit to build – as most of Tamiya’s 1/48 Armour kits seem to be. Pz.III No.04 was part of the 501st Heavy Panzer Battalion, which was part of the Afrika Korps in North Africa. Following the Allied landing in French North Africa the Battalion, with its 16 Panzer IIIs, arrived in Tunisia between November 1942 and January 1943. Initially only three Tiger Is of the 501st landed at Tunis on 23 November 1942. These first elements of the battalion, along with four Panzer IIIs, were organized with other units into Kampfgruppe Lueder. The
  6. Panther Mk.V - No. 445 - Pz.Abt. 51 'Operation Citadel' - Kursk - August 1943 This was my build for the Panther Mk.V STGB and will be my final completion for 2020. I have completed the actual build of a Pz.III in the MTO GB but I need to finish the base and figure(s) for it – which will probably take it into a week or so of January. I was planning on making a 1/35 kit for the Panther Mk.V STGB, but time was not on my side, so I decided to make a this 1/72nd snap kit from Zvezda instead. I have to say I really enjoyed the build. It was a relatively straight forward
  7. Hi all. This was a build to fill a gap of three weeks between my last GB projects and my hosting of the Panzer III Single Type Group which starts this Saturday - 6th February 2021. This was a bit of a rush job for me but it was a very straightforward project. These toon kits are great fun! Kit: Meng Toon Panzer III Paints: Acrylic Revell, Humbrol, Citadel and Railmatch all applied by brush Extras: Decals - crosses and numbers from the spares box, Vallejo Rust Texture and European Mud Thick texture WIP: Here
  8. *Well quick for me!! Having finished my 1/72nd Panther and my 1/48 Pz.III a few weeks ago, I decided I wouldn't be able to fit in a proper full build before the much anticipated Panzer III Single Type Group Build starts on the 6th February. So I checked through the stash for something fairly quick to make and figured one of Meng's Toon kits fitted the criteria. As this is a toon kit of a Panzer III, I also figured it would make a good promotional project to promote the Panzer III STGB which starts on the 6th February. Oh, by the way - did I mention the Panzer III Single Type Group
  9. I had originally planned to be part of this STGB right from the start, but, a combination of less modelling time generally and, as a result, my MTO GB Pz.III build taking longer than expected, has resulted in me starting with only about a month to go!!.......and part of that month includes Christmas, with all it's distractions! I had originally planned on building something in 1/35. I have some rather nice Dragon kits - some with Zimmerit. Then, as time went by, I thought I would do something in 1/48 - the Tamiya range in 1/48 usually produces some fine looking models. But a week or so ag
  10. I am struggling for time for kit making at the moment, but I can't not take part in an MTO GB! So, unlike my previous projects in previous MTO GBs, this is going to have to be a one-off 1/48 Panzer III build. From Wikipedia - The 501st Heavy Panzer Battalion was part of the Afrika Korps in North Africa. Following the Allied landing in French North Africa the Battalion, with its 16 Panzer IIIs, arrived in Tunisia between November 1942 and January 1943. Initially only three Tiger Is of the 501st landed at Tunis on 23 November 1942. These first elements of the battalion, along with four
  11. PK553 of No. 607 (County of Durham) Squadron, Royal Auxiliary Air Force, RAF Ouston, 1948. From the Airfix website: Spitfire PK553 was produced at the Castle Bromwich factory as part of contract B981687/39 and issued to No.607 Squadron, Royal Auxiliary Air Force. The RAuxAF was a force of paid volunteers who acted as a reinforcement reserve force for the Royal Air Force, giving up their evenings, weekends and holidays to train and serve in this essential force, following the end of the Second World War. RAF No 607 Squadron reformed on 10th May 1946 as a RAuxAF day fighter squadron
  12. Not sure how much time I'm going to have for this project with everything that’s going on, but it is THE Battle of Britain 80th Anniversary GB!! This was a birthday present from a colleague at work a few years ago: I'm going to at least try and get the Hurricane finished (hopefully with the prop motorised) and then see how many of the other bits and pieces I can complete before the finish. Really looking forward to the GB! Kind regards, Stix
  13. This was my build for the Britmodeller, 2020, Battle of Britain Group Build. The Hurricane is from the Airfix 1/48, Ready for Battle Gift Set. The only things I added extra were the motor - to run the prop, the aerial wire and the pilot figure which is, I think, from the Airfix Seafire kit. I thoroughly enjoyed the build even though the kit has to be carefully assembled due to some tight tolerances. This Gift Set was a birthday present from a colleague at work a few years ago - so I would like to say a big thank you for the very thoughtful gift. Kit: Airfix 1/48 Ready F
  14. Republic P-47D Thunderbolt - WZ-P - No.226551 As flown by Lt.Col. Benjamin Mayo, 84th FS, 78th FG, Duxford Air Base, 1944 Kit: 1/48 Tamiya "Bubbletop" Paints: Citadel, Humbrol and Revell - all applied by brush. Built mostly OOB apart from a few bits of scratch-built plastic and wire in the cockpit and wheel wells. This was built as part of the Republic P-47 Thunderbolt STGB Work In Progress: Here This build represents a number of firsts for me. It's the first non-Spitfire aircraft build since getting back into making kits again a few years back (I'm not counting the Captain Scarlet Angel
  15. Well it's been a while since I’ve made any aircraft kits but two GBs have got me back into building 1/72nd aircraft. This build was for the ‘In the Navy’ GB that is still running down in the Group Build section. I have previously built Airfix’s 1/72nd Wildcat as if it were in flight so, when a colleague at work kindly got me this Martlet for a birthday a while back, I thought - rather than make it with the wings out, I would do them folded. The ‘In the Navy’ GB seemed the logical place to make it in this way and I had some ideas for how I would display it. This particular Mk.IV Martl
  16. Hi all. I was intending to make something in 1/35 for this STGB but there are so many GBs I want to take part in over the next few months, that I have opted to do something in 1/48 instead. Luckily this kit arrived in the post last week. I have made one of these SU122s before and thoroughly enjoyed making it. Last time I did it in plain Russian green - this time I'm going to try doing a winter white-wash version - over Russian Green. I'm also going to try doing my first winter scene on the base. I've bought a variety of winter based scenery products over the years but haven't used them yet - w
  17. This was my project for the T-34 STGB. The GB is still going on so, if you are a fan of WW2 Russian armour, it's well worth checking out. The SU-122 was the first major variant of the T-34 chassis. Around 1,150 of them were built between 1942 and 1944. Weighing in at about 30 tons and with a crew of 4, the SU-122 was not originally designed as a tank destroyer but was supposed to be used against German fortified positions, strongholds and for ranged infantry support. After crew training, the first units of these were active in late 1942 and early 1943. The regiments the
  18. Well it's been a while since I’ve posted anything in this area, but two GBs have got me back into building 1/72nd aircraft.

  19. So my 1 and only lockdown build. Being a key worker I am either at work or at home looking after my daughter. Here is the Tamiya Tiger 1, and Brush painted. First time I have done track links and have to say what a pain. Over all a fun build and enjoyed the painting. Regards daron
  20. I apologise for being a bit late to the party @TEMPESTMK5. It's a Spitfire STGB!! Can't miss out on one of these. I had intended to be more organised and build Eduard's 1/72 Mk.IXc Late ProfiPACK Version but it's a beautiful and quite complex kit and I have another GB I want to take part in which starts in a few weeks time. So, rather than building the Eduard kit in a rush, I have opted for Airfix's less complex kit that I picked up about seven years ago for the princely sum of £6.99! It was an impulse buy from Geoff's Toys in Loughborough - a shop that sadly no longer exists! The im
  21. The new(ish) Airfix Martlet in 1/72 will be my entry (possibly the first of two) for this GB. These are the bits and bobs I'm thinking of using: I have previously made Airfix's 1/72 Wildcat as if it was in flight so with this one I'm intending to do it with the wings folded. I must also add that this kit was bought for my birthday a couple of years ago by a colleague at work - so a big thank you to them. Kind regards, Stix
  22. This is my first ever aircraft build which I built as part of the Blitzbuild GB, having built my first ever Tank in a previous one. It was a fun build with somewhat challenging decals! I hope you enjoy my little Egg plane, it was great fun to build as quickly as I could. The kit came with a little pilot: Just to show how
  23. This was my project for the T-55 Single Type Group Build down in the Britmodeller Group Build section. The Tamiya kit was a joy to build although I had a couple of fit issues early on - which surprised me for a Tamiya kit. Nothing major - just a few wishy-washy connection points/areas. Of course it could have just been me that was the issue! Early on I decided to replace the band tracks with some individual track links from MiniArt and didn't want to use the mesh provided by Tamiya so got the relevant grill set from Eduard. For this project I decided to try some slightly more restrained w
  24. Hi everybody. I hope everyone is keeping well. This was a project that I finished a month or so back but, with what's been happening with the current circumstances, I have found it difficult to find much time for modelling or getting onto Britmodeller. I'm trying to make up for that a bit today as this is the first day for a few weeks that I haven't been constantly trying to do my job remotely from home. This was a project that I began right at the start of the year as a stop gap between GBs. I wanted something relatively quick to make and, as I had made another modern 1/48 armo
  25. Well it's been a while since I posted anything in this section but I have just finished my build of Tamiya's 1/48 Razorback Thunderbolt in the P-47 STGB. I have built it as the P-47D of Captain Walker "Bud" Mahurin in 1944. Captain Mahurin was the first American pilot to become a double ace in the European Theatre. According to Wikipedia he was the only United States Air Force pilot to shoot down enemy planes in both the European and Pacific Theatres and the Korean War. During World War II he was credited with 20.75 aerial victories, making him the sixth-highest American P-47 ace. He was
