  1. Hello everyone, My initial idea was to build Dragon's Sherman II kit in 9th Lancers markings. However, after finding out that all 9L tanks that I was able to identify in my references were Lima built, while Dragon's kit was PSC built one, I decided to build Dragon kit as 3rd Hussars one, that I was able to identify as PSC built tank, and to build Asuka Sherman II kit as 9th Lancers, Lima built tank. It turned out to be an opportunity to compare those two kits. So, there are two finished models in this RFI: Asuka kit No. No. 35-014, built as Lima manufactu
  2. Hi guys, Starting WIP thread after quite some time. Struggling to make some time to do any modeling so its hard to squize writing WIP as well, although I enjoy doing it, and even more, following other people's WIP threads. Anyway, it's Dragon kit No. 6447. Looks nice at first glance. The only concern are DS tracks. I hate them, not as much as vinyl but still. However, this one looks very nicely molded and surprisingly, they arrived undamaged, so I'll probably go with them. PE fenders looks like something that might be a bit of a trouble and the
  3. I am currently building the Asuka/Tasca Direct Vision Sherman II (35-014), as used at the Battle of El Alamein, and I’ve hit a wee snag. According to the instructions, and the odd photo I’ve found, 9th Lancers’ Shermans carried a jerrycan on the left rear of the hull. The problem is that the instructions simply show it ‘stuck’ in place - which, obviously, it can’t have been in real life. All of the photos I’ve seen are too small and/or grainy to really make out what sort of method was used to secure the can in place, other than that there’s a strap running up around the can and under the handl
  4. I have been working on this one on and off for a couple of months, using a part-built Revell Hurricane IIc which I bought and tidied-up, and decals from the venerable old Esci Hurricane/Kittyhawk sheet. Given a choice of three or four conflicting profiles and no photograph I could find, I decided to please myself and stick with the kit-supplied spinner, painted in the undersurface colour (for which I chose Azure Blue), use Middle stone for the base colour of the nose and wing leading edges, and then use Dark Green to supply the pseudo-Italian style squiggles and rings (hence "sand and spinach"
  5. Hello UK Sherman aficionados, I need help with my Dragon Models El Alamein Sherman II (M4A1) 1/35 model build. My plan is to build this tank of "B" squadron 3rd Royal Tank Regiment in October 1942. My questions: (1) Was the demarcation between the camo colours hard (brush painted) or soft (sprayed)? (2) Which type of the two grouser bin / gas tank vent covers on the upper hull at the back of the tank should I use? The choices are rounded or squared off covers. (3) The engine deck has depressions at the far corners next to the engine access door corners. Dragon have parts to fill in these
  6. 223 Sqn RAF, 232 Bomber Wing, Western Desert Air Force, November 1942 Another one off the production line; this is the ancient Frog Martin Baltimore kit, marked to represent one of the Desert Air Force light bombers that played a key part in the pivotal 2nd Battle of El Alamein and the subsequent retreat and of Rommel's Afrika Korps, 70 years ago this week. The Baltimore was a development of Martin's Maryland fast bomber, taking into account the combined experience of the French and Royal Air Forces during the early part of the Battle of France. The Aircraft were originally ordered by the
