  1. Before I start on a new project, I thought I would finish off a couple of projects that have been gathering dust. I have always liked the look of the Crusader tank and likewise the Caunter scheme so I thought this would be the perfect combination. The build was progressing nicely until I reached the painting stage and did a little research. It appears that only a few of the very first Crusaders to arrive in Africa did so in time to receive the Caunter scheme and the only images that I could find of these vehicles showed that a number of changes would have to be made to t
  2. I've not been active on my WIP's for a while, largely due to other projects, one being this little one. This is my S-Model Light Tank MK VI with Dan Taylor Modelworks etched brass add ons, to turret and side skirts. In 1/72 this is very small! The Caunter scheme was applied with lots of masking using AK paints from their Caunter scheme set. The three colours used (from six in the set) are Slate, Portland Stone and Silver Grey. I did find that straight from the bottle, the silver grey was not dissimilar to the Portland stone, so I darkened it slightly with some Russian Cockpit turquoise! Decals
  3. Hi guys, Started this build some time ago, but unfortunately didn't take any photos so far. Nothing exciting till now anyway, built OOB. Perfect fit Tamiya kit (I find this one even better than other Tamiya kits I built so far). I'll go with vinyl tracks as they will be mostly covered by sidescirts anyway. Primed with grey Mr. Surfacer 1500 (I love this stuff, creates perfectly smooth finish) and painted with AK Real Colors. Not sure how accurate they are, but you can see yourself. Painted with 2:1 (thinner:paint) ratio, in three passes. This was my first time usin
  4. Evenin’ All Hot on the heels of my Panther last month, here’s my second big armour thingy! The kit - Tamiya’s 1/35 Matilda Mk II/IV (35300). An example from the 42nd Royal Tank Regiment, which formed part of the 1st Army Tank Brigade, and served in the Western Desert Campaign in North Africa in 1941-2. Built OOB, it virtually fell together, except for the link’n’length track, sections of which kept falling off ! Paint – Tamiya acrylics mixed to Mr Mike Starmers’s recipies for the Caunter scheme. Weathering – A lumpy, sludge mix of Humbrol weathering powder for
