  1. Thought I'd post some pics of a build that's been going on some time, meant to be relatively quick but life has very definitely got in the way this year! Started back in April, very slow progress; The plan is a Mk11 Chieftain with a 432, on a simple base, extras are Voyager models etch for the Chieftain and Tetra model works etch for the 432 with Master Club tracks for both, which I haven't used before. Accurate Armour figures with Hornet heads when we get that far. Started with the Chieftain building up the hull and replacing various bits with
  2. Having taken a look at the stash I decided some actual building models would be quite in order That said, I decided to make a 1/72 model of the FV 432> I have two of these in the stash. They are the S & M models Mk. 2/1, with decals for three colour schemes. I used the Green/black scheme. I even contemplated painting one in the Berlin Brigade colour scheme. I think I may now know better! Just a couple of fairly dodgy photos, not taken to hide the imperfections, but you can just about see the detail. The build itself was eventful - at this scale, I'm
  3. Kit already in my possession Kit already in my possession Kit already in my possession Waiting for this kit Getting back into modelling after a few years break. Intend to build a set of vehicles that made up a Chieftain based Armoured Regiment REME Fitter section. The fitter section consisted of about 15 men of various trades and kept each squadron going. 1RTR was a regiment that had 5 squadrons A, B, C, D and HQ Chieftain IFCS and Togs modified based, but all the fitter sections used Ce
  4. Somewhere in Europe… THE BRITISH ARMY 1976 - 2000. © Crown copyright. IWM (CT 681)IWM Non Commercial Licence Fashionably late to the party, I have acquired a Takom FV432 2/1 and hope to make a decent fist of it, reports I’ve read suggest it’s a nice kit to work with. I’ve added a Reveleri Series III Landrover to the stash as well, largely for sentimental reasons as my favourite vehicle I’ve driven to date, is the 1983 Series III 88" Landie that my family owned briefly in the early ‘90s.

  5. Just finished Takom's FV432. Great to finally see some British modern armour available other than tanks. It's a great kit which was a joy to build with an excellent instruction booklet with some good colour photos. The separate link tracks were a first for me but the jig supplied with the kit was brilliant and they are much easier to paint than the standard rubber types. This was a number of firsts for me. My first outing with Hataka paints using their Modern British Army & RAF AFV paint set. In the past I've used Tamiya, Vallejo and AK colours on modern British vehicles, but w
  6. FV432 Mk.3 Bulldog 1:35 Takom Dating back to the 1960, the design for this British front-line "battle taxi" has undergone many changes over the years, and many British Army soldiers will be hugely familiar with this robust, quirky little vehicle. Originally to have been declared obsolete and sent to the scrapyard or into private hands, the eruption of hostilities in the Middle East saw renewed use for the 432, and in light of experience gained in that theatre, a thousand chassis were upgraded and zero-houred to the new Mark 3 standard, including new steering, brak
  7. FV432 fitted with a Peak Engineering turret with the L37A1 variant of the 7.62mm GPMG, replacing the roof hatch. Pics thanks to Dave Haskell.
  8. Started on 1st April 2017 Finished on 21st April 2017 My absolute favourite build this year and a most long awaited model of a British Classic from the last 40+ years There are some hidden twists in the box as you can build almost any vehicle from the 1970's to the 1990's but the parts that should be used/not used are not made clear. If you want to see more, the full build is here
  9. Finally.... Lookie here, a fully injection moulded, full interior FV432 Mk.2/1 from our friends at Takom. Sourced from the Tamiya Model Magazine Facebook Group Sam But wait! There's more! Right, where's the British equipment set and figures with compulsory chipped enamel mug?
  10. GKN Sankey FV432 Armoured Personnel Carrier. Thanks to Jonathan Smith the owner for allowing me access to take the pictures.
