  1. Here is my recently finished 1/35 Tamiya M41 Walker Bulldog. I’m still relatively new to modelling and especially armour modelling. It was my first time trying some new techniques and I’m quite proud as to how it came out. Still lots of improvements to be made but I had so much fun making it! Cheers, Tom
  2. After a bit of research (Wikipedia) I decided to do something more on the modern end and use the Walker Bulldog from my stash. New Zealand acquired 10 in 1960 and they were used up till the early 1980s. The kit is the old Tamiya kit, which has roots back to 1964, so almost as old as the NZ service of the vehicle and pre-dates me! This will be the second time I've built this kit, the first was in my youth and it was the first 1/35 armour kit I built and I remember it going together quickly and impressively, lets see what 30 years of rose tinted glasses does! Even back then I questioned the box art - why they decided to picture the back of the tank, with the gun barrel sat on the (open) travel lock I'll never know. The kit itself is pretty basic, given the age - the suspension pre-moulded to the lower hull and lots of holes for Tamiya's dubious attempts to motorise the kits in the past. (I wonder if they ever worked?) Still that should mean it goes together quickly! The 2 sets of instructions are one in Japanese and one in English, but otherwise identical. The only aftermarket stuff I'm planning to use will be an AFV mantlet cover (the kit instructions tell you to scratch build one from a polythene bag!) Hopefully that will fit without too much fettling. I'm not planning on using any other after-market stuff, it's still a relatively cheap kit - metal link tracks would be over twice the cost of the kit! For markings I've found a few references - there's some walkaround photos of one of the tanks here - at it's retirement home (Australian Tank Museum), though apparently it may have been repainted. I found some useful info here about modifications, markings and a camo pattern, including a few photos - I'll be attempting this rather than an all over olive drab or deep bronze green. Given it's a pretty niche subject there aren't any after-market decals available but I have some ink-jet printer decal paper so will have a go with that - luckily being a tank the markings are small, few and far between, only issue could be the white number 2, but I can either paint that and add the decal over the top or I have a sheet of just white decal film somewhere in my bits, I can cut a small bit out as an underneath layer - obviously my home printer doesn't come with white as an ink colour!
  3. Hi! Decided to participate on this GB with my M41 Walker Bulldog, at 1/35 scale from Tamiya. It was a simple and cheap kit. http://
