  1. Hi all together, I've seen great Real Space Modeling projects in your forum. Therefore I want to point out you on my major project. I decided for the STS-6-Mission with the Challenger (04.04.1983) as guidance version for my build, as you can see here in the following image of the Launch Pad 39A with the Challenger before the start to the STS-6 mission. Source: retrospaceimages.com To be built is the Launch Pad 39A with Launch tower, Shuttle stack, as well as Mobile launcher platform (MLP) and Crawler transporter (CT). Basic module for my project is the old Revell kit 4911 in 1:144. In a
  2. Hi guys, It's been some months (Years?) I'm trying to come back to modelling. I've lost count of opened boxes left aside after a few days... But I'm still trying! As my lattest attempt is this very British Chally 1 from Tamiya (intended for a Desert Storm GB on Warpaints forum), I thought it might be nice to share the WIP with you all, benefits for me being to learn a thing or two about this tank, and get tips, advices and guidance toward online documentations. Here we go!
  3. Hi Since I decided to ditch a load of my aircraft kits and build mostly Muscle car kits, I thought I’d best start one. For this I picked probably the worst first, 1 of 3 Dodge Challengers I bought, of which there is no good kit available really, all have their faults The AMT 70 R/T has been out in many boxes, this is a standard one with no extra bits. The main problem with this is the roof. It’s marketed as either a convertible or hardtop and does neither correctly. I’ve gone the hardtop route which has required a bit of filler Not any
  4. Big Planes Kits (BPK) is to release 1/72nd and 1/144 Bombardier Challenger kits. Source: https://www.facebook.com/BigPlanesKits/photos/a.1510613519216386.1073741829.1509837872627284/1664192343858502/ V.P.
  5. '70 Dodge Challenger T/A (2'n1) Streetburner Revell - Nr. 85-2596 - 1:24 https://www.scalemates.com/kits/158534-revell-85-2596-70-dodge-challenger-t-a-2-n1 We will call this one done. It was a pleasure to build. Top quality in every way. Paint used was acrylic and waxed with Pledge Furniture Wax aerosol. Challenger Album google+
  6. Hi folk's sad but my aircraft mojo has gone on vacation I get a project out,stare at it and put it back so as I,m building the last subject in my other armour thread I thought as a companion to the Chieftain next up would be it's replacement. The kit comes in a sturdy box with lid. And the box is packed with sprue's. Must get a bigger table! Some beautifully molded parts,vinyl track's which actually bend with each link and a little fret of PE.There are a lot of extra parts in the box including a dozer blade and fitting's.
  7. Hi All - Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to all. Here's my Tamiya Challenger 2. Its straight out of the box bar some limited PE (I really struggle with any complex PE) and the anti slip made from spraying on Mr Surfacer 500 at 40psi. The kit goes together superbly and the tracks are fine for what you can see. For the time and effort I don't think you can really see the anti slip but each to his own i guess. Colour is just a mixture of Tamiya Desert Yellow and Flat Yellow. The direction of the Chevron marking on one si
  8. Hi all. Newest project has come to an end. Revell CL-604 Challenger. Great kit, added a few antennas, and an acrylic stand. Chuffed with the result. Painted with Humbrol, Alclad, and Mercedes rattle can clear coat. Robin
  9. Here is my build of Revells 1/72 Challenger 1. The fit of the kit was pretty good except I messed up a bit with the tracks, but nothing major. I built it OOB except I thougt it would look good if I cut out the turret baskets and put netting in it, which turned out -well- bad so i left it after the first one and glued the netting just onto the basket. I also filled the baskets with stowage made out of tissues and white glue as i added a thread to the winch(?) at the rear and I also made the manlet of the barrel out of tissue.

  10. Canadair Challenger CL-604 / C-143 MRC2A 1:72 BPK (Big Planes Kits) The Bombardier Challenger 600 is a business jet family originally developed by Bombardier following acquisition of the concept LearStar 600 from Bill Lear. Lear had really no influence on the design and development and thus Canadair took on the Challenger name for the aircraft. The prototype first flew in 1978. Following the acquisition of Canadair by Bombardier in 1986 the aircraft became known as the Bombarider Challenger. The aircraft can be distinguished by use of Fowler Flaps normally seen on airliners. Following Th
  11. Hey Guys, Brand new to all this forum stuff and all the etiquette behind it all, so here we go, jump in at the deep end. Used to build kits with my dad when I was 9/10 years old, didnt care about the finish of the model, just wanted to build, paint, then play with it and take it to school show and tell. 10 years on, a random trip to Hobbycraft and my eyes lit up with delight when I saw the model section. So off I went and picked up several models and paints including Airfix's Operation Herrick range (hoping to do a diorama eventually when I get my new house sorted), a few basic 1/72 planes,

  13. Hi, this is the combination of Tamiya's Challenger one tank and a couple of figures from Accurate armour, depicting a scene where a crew man is having his photo taken along side his ride. Sun newspaper is from the web, scaled down and printed out. Sand is vallejo sand texture. The drying washing is tissue paper soaked in dyed white glue. [/url]
  14. Hi, my name is Bernd and i have a Britmodeller account since yesterday active, so here is my first AFV on this forum. Revells Challenger is a very nice kit to build, fit is good and no real problems, except mine were discovered. The “baskets” around the turret were replaced with photo etched parts from Extra Tech. Here comes the injected plastic moulding technique to its end. That was VERY fiddly, it didn t help, that the assembled turret falls out of my hand during detailing, this was a moment the heart stands still for a second. The front baskets suffered a highly visible dent, so we have c
  15. The U.K's Main Battle Tank: Challenger 2 From service in 2003 (Operation Telic) An Operation in Iraq which featured a host of Challenger 2 Tanks and there Added armour and skirting. I mixed up my interpretation of British Desert Yellow using Revell aqua :16 sandy yellow + Matt white and brown. I picked up the Trumpeter version relatively cheaply and after reading other peoples opinions and reviews of this kit i have to say i did not find the kit bad at all. With some added details, mainly stowage and tarp, i think this is a good example of a reasonable kit, of course for the full monty Tam
  16. Morning All, After a lapse of nearly 15 years, I have started to build Tamiya’s Challenger 1 mk3 tank – Kids (reason I stopped modelling plus a few other things) gave it to me for Christmas (Cannot believe how expensive kits have got in that time £45+ for a dragon kit !), Anyway onto my question; what colour are those dam optics in the cupola and forward sights. Have been searching the net to find close up shots of a real challenger cupola and not found much, found loads of shots of models and the majority seem to be gloss black, a few green, a few red, a few blue and a few mixed of red and b
