  1. Here's a scratchbuild that I started in early September. Thanks to being furloughed again, it is now finished & ready for the rivet counters. The idea was for a lightweight, faster, more nimble ground attack Falke. The basic bits were a 1/24th Chevy Berretta and the booms from a 1/32nd P-38 Lightning. The spares boxes contributed parts, as did @badger and WNW lozenge decals came from @gcn. Here's a link to the build thread. https://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/235079743-a-falke-is-born/ I took advantage of the sunshine today! Helmut showed u
  2. This one is an unholy marriage of a Bell 47 helicopter cockpit and a Cessna 02 spotter aircraft. With floats and a jet engine for good measure. I'm not sure if the kreiger universe even has ships. But I've armed this with water jet powered 'Penguin' torpedo's just in case. The floats were from a Smer Swordfish. Other bits are sparesbox fodder. The paddle on the float was Tamiya Schwimwagen. The 'MAD' type detection boom here was a Smer torpedo. What look like paint rollers are cockpit access steps. One of the 'Penguin' torpedo's ready for lau
  3. Here we go with another kreiger kitbash using whatever I've got hanging around. A recent build in the Aircraft section was an Edgely Optica by @Hamiltonian. An unusual looking but useful thing, it inspired me to have a bash. A search through the scrapyard yielded a Revell 'MASH' Bell 47 Helicopter and a Testors (I think) Cessna O2 Forward Air Controller's (FAC) Aircraft. I dismantled the Bell, sanded off the decals and sawed the nose off of the Cessna. Well you would wouldn't you? A little blurred but it shows the general idea. I taped over the bubble to save it from
  4. This one was a quick simple build from the spares box. If you're going to build a mechanical device, a vehicle for instance, you'll need prototypes/development 'mules' to iron out the bugs and refine the design. The kreiger universe has Armoured fighting suits (AFS). What came before them? How were they developed? Enter this thing, The Ritter (German for Knight). The basic shell was a Boeing Sea Knight Helicopter, first built many years ago, The rest of it pretty much built itself. Scale is 1/20th. Helmut, our techie, shows the size of it. Yes, there is a bloke insid
  5. I recently found a 'gluebomb' on the bay. It was a good price and I was curious. Battery powered, adhesive smeared and with an anti aircraft gun on the roof, what's not to like? It's an old Gunze Sangyo product and is somewhat of a Land Cruiser 'egg' model in 1/24th. But I wanted it to be 1/20th. Once disassembled, I cut off the roof. The dashboard and wheel from a 1/20th kit was added and the rear inner arches faired in. Underneath there were huge differentials to cover the gears so I made up some tubes and odd bits as a rough drivetrain.
  6. And here we go again. Yes, it's yet another kreiger scratchbuild. No, as usual I'm not quite sure how it's going to turn out, but I do have a plan (subject to change as always). Consider the battlefield. After the flash bangs and screaming is over, there is always kit to be recovered for salvage or repair. Who does that job? Most model builders focus on the flash bang stuff, but I thought I'd try a bit of recovery work. Hover, tracks or wheels? Of the three I thought the track made the best sense, they should handle most terrains, and a crane doesn't really w
  7. Now what? well, I was clearing out the garage a few weeks ago and found an old butane gas lighter. I looked at the shape and instantly thought, Hover bike. So here we go.... I have a couple of large scale motorbikes in the scrap boxes, so I should be okay for bike bits. (A Harley and a Yamaha, for those who NEED to know). Yeah, sorry about the colour. It did mean we could always find it though. The Christmas tree bauble is the anti grav unit, as used on the Ma.k Falke. The 1/20th scale Falke used table tennis balls but this is near enough the right size. In the foreg
  8. I've been using up my spare time on this weird and wonderful device. I started with the intention of scratchbuilding a 1/20th copy of the Fledermaus, because the kit is a silly price. But this one evolved into a 1/35th unmanned AI equipped aerial reconnaissance platform. I didn't want to slavishly copy the usual Luftwaffe paint, so I took a cue from the colour schemes used on RAF P-40's in the desert. The figure posed with it is from the Bandai Zeon universe and is slightly undersized, but does show the size of the beast. The basic fuselage was a Skycrane Helicop
  9. Now, I wanted to build a Maschinen Kreiger Fledermaus. But you can't get them for love nor money, and I refuse to pay silly prices anyway. https://www.google.com/search?rlz=1C1GGRV_enGB757GB758&q=maschinen+krieger+fledermaus&tbm=isch&source=univ&safe=strict&sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwiWuufBqL_kAhXWilwKHfu2AQMQsAR6BAgJEAE So after a good think, it's back once more to the rapidly depleting spares boxes. (All donations gratefully received and postage etc refunded) (If I mention models used I'll add a date when they were first built, it may help. Or not) Wha
  10. And welcome to another of my finished scratchbuilds. This one based on the upper half of a Star Wars Slave One. (The lower half became a Hover Tank). It seems that I only started this one last month. So for me that's pretty fast work. Wurger was applied to the Fw190, the Butcher bird. This one would be lunar based and piggyback to Earth orbit on a Sternail. There it would disable enemy craft and satellites and tow the remains back for salvage. Link to a Sternail picture. I built this one probably ten years ago. http://i1373.photobucket.com/albums/ag398/petergsoden/Sternail05_zps
  11. And here we go again. Some of you may have seen my last scratchbuild, a Hover tank from the Airfix Star Wars Slave 1 kit. I just used the lower hull for the tank. So what of the rest of it? I'm going to use it on this thread to build an orbital hunter/killer ship which would damage and salvage enemy spacecraft. I'm fairly well hooked into building Maschinen kreiger stuff so this will be another one from that universe, albeit not an 'official' craft. (Unless of course, Kow Yokoyama San happens by, and gives it his blessing). Here are the main parts ta
  12. Thanks to a week off work and a push this afternoon I've finally finished my floaty boat build, Misfit 2. Based on an ancient pre-built FROG Shell Welder tanker, This build has cost me very little, mostly just paint & glues as virtually everything came out of the spares boxes. And it has provided many hours of enjoyment. If you're wondering, the Maschinen kreiger universe is on Earth 800 years in the future, and resources are being fought over. I like the Ian McQue floaty boats & I like kreiger, so, what if the seas are dried up, you have useless ships and anti grav
  13. Finally finished. My latest Kreiger scratchbuild of a Lunadiver variant, the Manta. A space based hunter killer. I hasten to add that this is not an official part of the kreiger universe. I made it up. I do have a Hasegawa Lunadiver Stingray kit, but hesitate to build it as I'm having too much fun doing these things. Two Sea Kings, Two Whirlwinds, One Frog Wessex and various other bits and pieces make up this one. (Oh, and a fair amount of filler) (The stand is ex Corgi aircraft, 50p from the car boot) There is a WIP thread so you can see how it came together & tha
  14. Here we go again. This will be yet another of my bits boxes builds. I like the idea of the Maschinen kreiger universe and I have several of the kits in the stash. I do find though, that I enjoy scratchbuilding much more than just assembling and painting a kit. To that end, I've built quite a few variants using whatever I had to hand, and this will be another of those. My apologies if some of the pictures are slightly out of focus. Or is just my eyes? Here is a link to a picture of the official kit http://www.amerang.co.uk/image/cache/data/Hasegawa/HMK03n-
  15. I finished this one a couple of months ago but didn't then have a picture host site. There is a WIP so you can see how I built it. https://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/235040486-another-walker/&do=getNewComment I wanted a lived in look, like a WW2 Sherman for instance. Imagine this is the crews home for months on end. This build was inspired by a picture I saw some years ago. I cannot find it now though. Apologies in advance for the lousy picture quality. Hopefully you'll be able to make it out. Paint is Tamiya IJN gree
  16. People here have shown interest in my past scratchbuilds so here is one I finished a couple of months ago. I thought I'd show it as a WIP first so that the build process can be seen and someone may pick up tips and have a go themselves. This one was inspired by a picture I saw years ago of a walker on a slight rise with the Commander looking out of his cupola as if he were on a scouting mission. I finished this one as if it could be from any universe so it could be kreiger, or an early form of AT ST from Star Wars or whatever you like. Basis is 2 Revell MBB Bo 105 helicopt
  17. At long last, and so long as the bucket place works, I can post pictures of my latest scratchbuild. The parts were accumulated over a long period. The main body, the big black thing in the picture, was a device for playing mp3 in the car, the tanks on the sides are, I recently discovered, No2 bottles, I just found them on the ground. The pilot is over 45 years old and was an Airfix Ford Escort driver, you may be able to see an Escort hubcap on the nose. The wheel for the top hatch was an Escort steering wheel. The 'arms' are from a minesweeper
  18. Bit of a leap from what you saw on WIP to this but Sometimes that's how it turns out. As it turned out the beast wasn't too stable (as predicted) I couldn't get the autostab to work. Ahem. I cut discs from a kit box and used a product called mod podge (I think) it's like thick white glue, Slapped it on and plunged the feet into it overnight. Some paint and model railway foliage followed. I'd put kitchen foil around the cardboard, rather like a cupcake, when I removed it I found it had dried clear and vertical in places rather like splashes. Result! I then cut plasticard discs and epo
