  1. I started this beast four years ago. I love the Conqueror, from my first day at Stanley Barracks I was mesmerised by the hoofing great lump of a gate guard. Later on I got to go inside it, it was awesome, a proper tank. Loved by many of its crews, but not all, loathed by an Army that never got to grips with it logistically, mechanically or tactically. I couldn't wait to get the Dragon kit when it came out , despite its flaws. I intended to build OTB and just correct the major faults.......Glacis height and front roof armour, rear profile of the turret and gun barrel length/fume extractor position. Like I said, that was the plan......Mission creep! I ended up scratching most of the fighting compartment.....It killed my Mojo for Armour. But now its back, and I want this done and dusted! Here is the glacis modified. This is exactly the same modification as the real tank, when I was researching this build I went to Stanley Barracks and took loads of photos of the real thing and this mod is very visible! I doubled the number of engine louvers and replaced the moulded handles with captive wire ones, they lie flat unless I pop them up for photo opportunities! Main engine bulkhead, an RBJ and half of the front bulkhead where 14 120mm charges sit! Main engine air cleaners, these go on the aft bulkhead. turret internals, loaders side Turret turntable/ basket. Gunners platform with seat and Perspex safety shield, gun control equipment and the bottom end of the Molins gear FCT interior, commanders seat. FCT cupola, with the rangefinder head 120mm main armament breech and .30cal coax Drivers compartment and turntable dry fit. Turret guts FCT dry fit FCT cupola dry fit 120mm gun barrel, radios, battery box, part of the turret basket, modified drivers hatch, FCT guard, and the gunners traverse indicator. Everything else is in the box! So I guess this lot is already in the win column! I have the stowage to finish off internally, fit the gun in the turret, sort the mantlet cover, fit all the running gear.........it`s a big old list, but I`m two pints of Gin and tonic the right side of overconfidence and up for the challenge! Ta for lookin` no G Granto
  2. First finished build of 2019, built as part of the Panzer IV STGB. Second build of the year built as part of the Tiger STGB hosted by me and Stix. Finished off in 2019, the Bedford boys hitting Omaha beach June 6th 1944. Built as part of the D-Day group build, 2nd Platoon Easy Company taking the first gun at Brecourt manor June 6th 1944. Built during a Models For Heroes session at Tedworth House. And finally mini Arts European tram and ICMs Sd.Kfz 251/6. Thanks for everyone who's given me advice of links to get aftermarket bits. Happy New Year everyone, happy modelling for 2020.
  3. Having built nothing new for about five months (partly to do with loss of enthusiasm), I had a root through the cupboards where I keep my stash, trying to come up with something that would fire me up (you’d think that with 50 odd AFVs and trucks, it wouldn’t be too difficult). Several years ago, I built a Firefly 1c using a Tamiya M4 upper hull and a Dragon lower hull, but I made some school boy errors, and ditched it. It’s now sitting on a shelf, in pieces waiting to be recycled into other builds. Right, the current project. There is now a 1/35th scale model of the Sherman 1c with a welded hull from Dragon, but I still have a lot of spare parts to use up. Gathering the relevant parts together, I found that I was short of an upper hull, but an email to somebody I know on TL has got me a Tamiya M4 upper hull. There are some modifications to be made to it such as the radio pot (wrong shape) and a few weld lines on the glacis that need eliminating and some that need enhancing. The lower hull is also Tamiya and has been used in many different kits, but unfortunately has a (minor) problem; the moulded on base plates for the VVSS are 1mm higher on one side than the other which does make the completed model lean to one side. But it isn’t major and a sharp chisel blade and some sanding will remove them ready for new ones to be fitted. I have a Firefly turret left over from the original build which is in reasonable condition, but if I’m not happy with it, I have a new one (Dragon). Whichever way that I choose, I’ve also got a 17pdr courtesy of RB Models. The rest will come from my spares box such as the suspension, bins, stowage etc. The one thing that I’m not sure about at the moment are the tracks. If I don’t have the appropriate ones, then I will order a set from Panda Plastics. Also, not sure about the finish. Once I’ve had a look through my decals, then I’ll decide. So there you have it. I won’t be starting this off with any photos of sprues, box art etc as it’s not relevant, but my next post will be straight into the build, modifying the lower hull. See you then. John.
  4. Hello Dears, Here's my first finished tank for years, It's the Dragon one with lots of goodies Resicast interior joerdi Rubio metal barrel for the 76mm accurate armour Duckbill tracks And lots of swearing !! The box say that it was in the battle of the bulge, but that is wrong ! Since in this book It is said that Abrams received a brand new M4A3 with a 76mm more powerfull gun in mid January '45 and at the time, they were moved in Luxemburg ready to launch an offensive toward river Rhine ! so I had to change my plans .... My idea was to pose that tank beside the Bogess's jumbo ! I should have add more stuff in the tank, but my goal is just that the viewer can see there's someting on the Inside of the beast. I will carry on with some weathering since I still have to work on the figures that will go on it Paints are Lifecolor, decals from the box. Not the easiest kit at all but it seem good to me My goof, I buy a Jordi rubio metal barrel but ther was already a metal barrel included in the box... I must make a tank destroyer in the future ! Ok Gents, I'm open to your comments, my next armoured project will be a little bit different ! Have a very good modelling time and thanks for watching ! Sincerely. Corsaircorp
  5. Here is a Jagdpanther that was originally the 3 color scheme but now a beat up winter camo. I'm pretty much over the winter camo urge now.
  6. I began a new project, a german machine for once. An easy assembly.
  7. This is the Dragon kit that I picked up from the LHS scratch and dent sale for half price. It's a good kit, with a lot of detail inside and out, but I chose not to build the drivers compartment and engine bay as they can't be seen when it's buttoned up. This machine was captured in Italy in 1943.
