  1. Finally, my RFM Sherman is done ..... https://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/235122906-and-for-my-next-trick-which-im-calling-done/ I wanted to display this in a 'split' fashion to show all the interior detail, so have used brass rod to support the upper hull and turret. So here goes .... Thank you for looking, comments and feedback welcome! Keith 😁
  2. I brought this last year having watched a build of it on a well known video platform as 1) it seemed like a good idea at the time and; 2) I fancied 'a challenge' as I told Mrs K when I ordered it 😳 No pictures of the sprues - there's 14 of the buff coloured ones .... and a couple in grey that have all the parts to make the track links ..... in all over 2000 parts in the box including photoetch 😬 I made a start .... I managed to fill the ejector marks in the upper hull. I have to say this is disappointing for such a pricey kit and one that I thought was high quality ..... oh well, there's the first lesson of this build! I also managed to fit the front plate for the machine gun mount .... a bit of fettling needed here too 🙄 ..... but it's one part less! So, order your popcorn, pull up a chair and come along for the ride ..... which could be a long one! Keith 😁
  3. As you know, I'm working on the RFM Sherman M4A3 with full interior. The paint scheme suggests that the inside of the crew hatches in the hull and turret is white, but I read (can't recall where though) that they were painted green, the same as the outside as white would be a giveaway from the air. I've currently got mine in white primer, so a change of colour is easy at this stage. Can anyone help or advise me on this as I'd like to be reasonably accurate. Thanks in advance, Keith 😁
  4. This is my latest build - an SU-85 (Early Production Mod.1944) of the 221st Tank Regiment, 8th Estonian Rifle Corps on the Leningrad front in the summer of 1944. Both my first Soviet AFV and full interior kit, I received it at Christmas 2017 and started it soon afterwards. However, complications with fitting the crew members inside and losing the decals (later found after MiniArt supplied a replacement set!), caused the build to stall for a considerable time. However, with an ‘end the shelf of doom’ push I have finished it! It was a very enjoyable build and I learnt a number of things - especially to look very carefully at the building instructions since several parts in a build section look similar - but are not! I found that with some components of the interior a misalignment in the fitting/gluing would nearly always cause problems further down the line. That said my biggest headache was making the four crew (commander, gunner, loader and driver by Master Box) fit the interior. Much radical surgery was required and I half suspected that the figures are slightly over-scale. It is just possible to see the back of the driver's head on the forward view photograph (below). I did consider ‘opening up’ the AFV to show the detailed engine and fighting compartments, but decided that - besides complicating things - it might blur the contrast between the ‘Factory fresh’ and ‘War weary’ aspects of the model. The display base is quite simple with the civilian worker (LZ Models) being there to give some idea of the size of this AFV. The SU-85 shared the same low profile as the German Sturmgeschütz III and, later, the Jägdpanther and, like them, would often prove to be a difficult target for the enemy. For those interested, the banner on the external fuel tanks reads: ‘Pod znamenem Lenina - vpered za Rodinu, za nashu pobedu!’ which translates to ‘Under the banner [of] Lenin - forward for the Motherland, for our victory!’ (My apologies to any Russian speakers if I have got this wrong)! The slogans on the side of the AFV are in Russian (Cyrillic) and Estonian and both say ’For Soviet Estonia.’ The SU-85 (Samohodnaya ustanovka meaning ‘self-propelled’) was a Soviet weapon system based on the chassis of the T-34 medium tank. The ’85’ designation is for the bore of the vehicle’s main armament which, in this case, was the 85 mm high velocity D-5S gun - itself adapted from the 52-K anti-aircraft artillery (AAA) weapon The Soviet Union’s first large-scale production tank destroyer (as opposed to an infantry support/assault weapon) the SU-85 was designed on the body of the SU-122 using 80% of the parts of the T-34; it was introduced in August 1943. However, when the up-gunned T-34 medium tank with an 85 mm gun entered service in early 1944 there was little point in continuing production of the SU-85. This was halted in late 1944 after a production run of 2,650 vehicles - giving way to the SU-100 tank destroyer armed with a more powerful 100 mm gun. Though it served until the end of WW2 the SU-85 was withdrawn from Soviet service soon after the war’s end; a number were exported to Soviet client states with those in North Korea and Vietnam seeing active service in those conflicts. SU-85s were still in service with several armed forces until as recently as the 1990s. Any constructive criticism would be much appreciated! Thanks for stopping by and looking. Mike
  5. Donner und Blitzen! I swore I'd pull back from doing a Group Build and then I saw this. I have always been keen to do a diorama (or vignette?) of this: Any limited 'expertise' I may have is around things with wings, so tanks are a bit left field for me so I am hoping you guys may be able to help a bit with this one? From what I have found on this subject, it is a 'G' Panther? But then I find there are early and late 'G's, and then early late and late late, and... so I am a bit lost with this one. Info I have come across suggests it may be from LSSAH, but then others dispute this. Apparently taken in June 1944 on its way to the Ardenne (?) I have found several photos apparently of the same subject: Edit : I have since found that the Panther pictured above may be an Ausf A So, is this a 'G'? I have a Dragon 'G' with zimmerit - would this be okay to use for this subject? Rubber 'tyred' wheels by the look of it, chicken wire on the barrel. Later style gun mantlet (with deflection)? Machine gun missing from glacis position. Is there anything else I am missing with this one? From what I understand, basic Panzer yellow with blotches of green around brown (?) It looks like not a lot of wear and tear, but perhaps a fair bit of road dust - is that a reasonable interpretation? Thank you for any guidance with this. I'm looking at other builds here and hope to learn on the run. Pete
  6. Hi all, this is my first full interior kit. It is a T-34/85 Berlin 1945 by Ding Hao and the base is by Coastal Kits. i am thinking of entering this into the Scalemodel world in Telford this year in the Junior entry as i am still eligible. i also need help on how i should display it, any tips would be highly appreciated 😃 sorry about bad quality, Instagram compresses the photos, plus i have awful lighting for photos

  8. We've just received stock of these greatly anticipated 1/35 scale Model Tank Kits from Takom Models. Including three excellent German King Tiger models with interior detail parts and a 2-in-1 Chinese PLA Type 59/69 Tank Kit. https://www.wonderlandmodels.com/blog/article/takom-tanks-stock-king-tiger-type-59-69/
  9. I was wondering if anyone could point me towards a good quality, but reasonably priced, 1/35 1970s NATO (preferably American or German) AFV kit with a full interior? I don't normally model post-WWII subjects and I usually only work in Braille Scale so I'm a bit out of my depth here. Basically I'm looking for something akin to the incredible Hobbyboss 1/48 T-34 kits, but in 1/35: http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/55081-148-hobby-boss-t-3485/
  10. Well I started properly building it yesterday(fathers day). I'll add pics of it as I progress the build. Arghhhh, so many wheels!!!!!. I've got a stack of etches to add to the base model, gun barrels (main & machine guns), grills, tow cables etc. Now to the point of this point, this model will need priming and painting in stages, I have 2 cans of primer white and grey, which is best to go under the base dunkelgelb(xf60)?
