  1. Hi, I have decided to restart my ship modelling after a break to try painting (not very well) 28mm Napoleonic Cavalry. I like the small IBG destroyers and have not done HMS Harvester yet. As you can see from the parts i have already put a coat of dark deck grey from Sovereign Hobbies on the needed parts. I have a bit of a dilemma with the colour scheme, as the ship is depicted as in 1943 but the colour call outs are for pre 43 colours (W.A. white blue and green) whereas I have bought Jamie's 1943 Western approaches set which is white, B30 and B55. I will also b
  2. I'm in the middle of putting together 1/48 Me-410, but that nearly finished Los annoyed me a little bit so I decided to finish it. Of course during the process it turned out that there is a lot more to do than I thought so I rushed a little bit - bottom is not weathered, no antennas and few things could be better. I'll fix that later, but Los is in the cabinet now, not occupying my working space and thats big difference ;). Very nice model. Straight from the box. Painted with Hataka paints. Wasn't sure about the right shade of Polish Khaki, but I've read it was dark, almost chocola
  3. Hi all, First out of the blocks is this little Ausf-B, a magazine partwork picked up from WH Smiths a couple of years back. According to the reference material seen alongside, only 15 of this variant were constructed - The most notable difference between this and later versions being the suspension with 8 wheels rather than 6 each side. The plastic itself is produced by IBG and there is some good quality moulding going on here - Gun barrel, exhausts were already open, suspension seems to be slide moulded and nice chequer plate on th
  4. An impulse buy while picking up supplies, managed to finish it before the end of the year. Brush painted with Tamiya acrylics and weathered with oil and acrylic washes. Finished out of the box as a vehicle from HQ Platoon, 11th Field Company, Royal Canadian Engineers, 2nd Canadian Infantry Division, Normandy, August 1944. Build thread can be found here. thanks for looking - and a Happy New Year!
  5. You would think I would have learnt my lesson with the recently completed Staghound - but while picking up supplies at the local hobby shop I saw this going for a very reasonable price: Having never heard of the Otter, I was intrigued and grabbed it. On viewing the contents though - so many tiny pieces!!!! So taking stock I did some reading around to find out about the Otter, discovering it was a Canadian built equivalent of the Humber Light Reconnaissance Car (https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Otter_Light_Reconnaissance_Car).
  6. Hello hobby colleagues) I want to show you the assembly of the beginning of this "wonderful" year. British truck of Canadian construction in the version of a petrol tanker. IBG, for which many thanks to them, made several unique models, one of which I was lucky to assemble. The assembly is pleasant, although sometimes it takes some effort. As with many car models, the biggest problem is the convergence of the cab parts. Well, the interior is quite empty, which is offset by the uniqueness. Thank you for your attention, enjoy your viewing)
  7. I haven’t built anything in ages, my last completion being back in April. So while scanning the shelves at the local hobby shop on Saturday I saw a whole bunch of kits by IBG, a company I haven’t heard of. The price was reasonable to take a punt, so I grabbed the Crusader Mk 1. The plan was to do a quick build over a few days. While my skills have atrophied somewhat, it was a nice relaxing build. Brush painted with Tamiya acrylics, build thread can be found here. Thanks for looking!
  8. This weekend is the start of my annual leave, so what better way to start than a quick build? Picked up this on Saturday from the local hobby shop: Not a huge amount of parts, and the way the tracks are done will save a bit of time (although there is some of the dreaded photo etch): I’ve chosen a nice simple paint scheme: So making a start at around 8:30 on Sunday morning: and here is where I am at 10:00 am. No major issues, all went together very easily using Tamiya Extra Thin Cement. Some of
  9. Dear fellow Britmodellers, I just finished my 1/72 IBG Scammel recovery truck. This is an amazing multi-media model kit with fine detail, but requires some patience and experience. I am not too happy with the tow rope, which lacks tension. The photo-etch hook does not really add weight to the assembly. I painted with Gunze/Mr Hobby acrylics, representing a vehicle of 22.Armoured Brigade, 7. Armored Division, in France 1944. All photographs by Wolfgang Rabel.
  10. PZL P.11b Fighter in Romanian Service (72518) 1:72 IBG For its time, the PZL P.11 was one of the most advanced fighter aircraft in the world. While many nations were still using bi-planes, Warsaw-based PZL (Państwowe Zakłady Lotnicze - State Aviation Works) had designed and built an all-metal gull winged monoplane fighter. The high wing provided the pilot with a good field of view and produced less drag that the bi-plane fighters of the time. The type drew orders from overseas as well as Poland. The aircraft was ordered by Romania and was built under licenc
  11. Finally can call this one complete. Build log is here: https://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/235059937-tks-tankette/ Here's the photo that started all this: And here's my model: And here's the size comparison with a regular sized matchbox: Thanks, Kristjan
  12. I'm having my StuG currently on a pause, so meanwhile I have another build on my workbench, which is a little TKS tankette. The thing is really tiny, only a spec bigger than a matchbox. The kit is from IBG, which is currently the best one on the market over the RPM and Mirage kits. I also have Part aftermarket sets - both exterior and interior one, to add some detail to the vehicle, and ABER Hotchkiss M1914 barrel. It's going together relatively well. I have added a great deal of Master Club rivets to the hull though - the front and rear glacis got them wrong and bottom
  13. This build will be of IBG's HMS Zetland, a Hunt II class destroyer in 1942. I don't have much reference fo the model, so will build OOB. To give you an idea how big - or small - the model is ...
  14. The size of /1700 has put me off to date. However, I've marvelled at some of the work on display in this forum and also been bedazzled by the work of Kostas Katseas I thought I'd have a go and rather randomly chose IBG's new I Class - HMS Ithuriel. This is a bit of a proof of concept and I'm going to riff with some bases. The Chris Flodberg Styrofoam method seems too small to replicate at this scale and I'm working up to using Clear casting resin as per Kostas Katseas. Here's the box with a slightly deceptive B5 shade at the bow which is in fact MS4 on the ac
  15. Dear fellow Britmodellers, here's my 1/72 Crusader Mk.III Anti-Air-Tank with 2cm Oerlikon guns. I bought this kit @ Modelbrno in June, and finished from the box, with the addition of the stowage pieces (one from Quickboost, the other one scratch-built). According to kit instructions, the markings resemble a vehicle of 1st Royal Tank Regiment, 22nd Brigade, 7th Armored Division, in 1944. Painted with Gunze/Mr.Hobby acrylics. Photographs by Wolfgang Rabel (thank you!). Thanks for
  16. I've just finished this in the ",dday gb " more pictures on the thread and in the dday gallery ,i used the very nice " 1/72 ibg bedford qlb gun tractor kit ,and a little photo etch detail set ,i opened a couple of doors and the front windows ,used pva soaked tissue for the tarp and rolled a bit up to represent the canvas doors, the bofors gun is a zvezda kit, more for wargaming i believe but a nice little kit all the same, Cheers Glynn
  17. Here's what I'll be attempting for this build, a change from aircraft, although I have never finished an AFV in a GB IBG's 1/35th Marmon-Herrington armoured car, with resin 'clutter' by black dog. We'll see how it goes, I may add some figures, not my strong point!
  18. Hi guys; This is my 3° model finished this year. I really like IBG models. I had a good moments building my Karás last year. This Łoś is a beautiful model. I used Hataka paints and a Yahu panel. Cheers.
  19. This is the IBG 1/72 kit that took a couple of days to finish with some rather large crew figures by Germania Figuren. It was Japan's attempt to square up the M4 Sherman that was completely outclassing other Japanese tanks such as the Chi-Ha. An old French-designed WWI 75mm gun and 50mm of armour made the intent rather doubtful. This model represents a tank on the home front that never got to find out.
  20. Hey Guys, I have here IBG Models new Panzer III. It's not everyday you walk into WH Smiths and see them selling models so I thought why not I'll try something different. Construction was simple enough and with it being 1/72 and no running gear construction, apart from gluing it to the hull. Detail was utterly superb though, puts some 1/35 kits to shame... Painted with humbrol enamels and finished with a light weathering as well as drybrushing. Really enjoyable kit to be fair, and I've got their panzer II on the bench now!
  21. Here is my completed build of the IBG Scammell Pioneer Recovery vehicle and I've paired it with a build of the old Airfix 15cwt CMP kit from way back to illustrate the Scammell in action. I don't claim 100% accuracy in the portrayal, the figures are Aussies and the unit markings are for the 9th Div so this could be somewhere in North Africa or Sicily or Italy... I'm not that bothered to be honest You can see the build thread here:
  22. Otter Armoured Car 1:72 IBG Models The Otter armoured car was a Canadian designed light reconnaissance vehicle, similar in layout to the British Humber armoured car but based on the Chevrolet C15 military truck chassis. The Otter was both larger and heavier than the Humber, but made up for this with a more powerful six cylinder liquid cooled engine. It was protected by armour up to 12mm thick and was armed with a Bren light machine gun and a Boys anti-tank rifle. The Canadian manufacturer produced over 1700 examples by the end of the War. It saw action
  23. PZL 23B Karas Polish Light Bomber (early) 1:72 IBG The PZL.23 Karas was a light bomber and reconnaissance aircraft developed by Państwowe Zakłady Lotnicze (PZL) during the interwar period. A modern aircraft by the standards of the day, the Karas was of all-metal construction and was powered by a licence-built version of the Bristol Pegasus VIII radial engine. The Karas was the main light bomber in the Polish Air Force by the outbreak of war. As such, it has the distinction of having conducted the first bombing raid on Reich territory, when a single aircr
  24. Chevrolet C30A General Service (Steel Body) 1:72 IBG The Canadian Military Pattern truck was a class of vehicles produced by Ford, Chevrolet/GM and Dodge to a British Army specification. The trucks were used by Britain and her Commonwealth allies in almost every theatre of war from the time of the truck's introduction in 1940. By the end of the War, over half a million examples had been built, accounting for around two-thirds of all military vehicle production in Canada during the period. The most commonly produced sub-variant was the 4x4 3 Tonne version
  25. Glynn has talked me into posting my build of the IBG Scammell Pioneer SV2S Heavy Breakdown Tractor. This is the one I mean. and I'm hoping to build an RAF version. I've already started the build and I'll post photos as I go. I built and weathered the engine first, you may have seen these pictures in Glynn's post. Fuse wire, solder, a couple of bits of sprue and some Tamiya masking tape. I'm using Village Photos to upload the pictures but
