  1. Picked this one up a few weeks ago after the fun I had with Masterboxes Austin Armoured Car. A pretty straight forward build (except for the very small piece at the front which ended up being eaten by the carpet monster). Painted to represent HMLS Kia-Ora which was involved in the Second Battle of Gaza in April 1917. More information on this action can be found here: https://tank100.com/training-combat/tanks-palestine-first-world-war/ The main colour scheme is brush painted Tamiya Acrylic (XF49 Khaki) with various oil and acrylic washes and some light dry brushing. The
  2. An inexpensive impulse buy a few weeks ago and a delight to build. Brush painted with Tamiya acrylics, with weathering from various oil and acrylic washes. Tried a bit of dry brushing with oils for the first time - happy with how it worked out. Markings from the box for a vehicle in France 1918. From my reading around it was likely with the 17th (Armoured Car) Battalion of the Tank Corps, although markings may be spurious. Thanks for looking.
  3. Desert Battle Series Kit No.1 (MB35214) Skull Clan – Long-Distance Raid. An Old Raider. Vadim 1:35 Master Box Ltd via Creative Models Ltd Master box have various series of figures that have themes unrelated to history, film or TV series. The Desert Battle series is a dystopian future (aren’t they all?) that’s not too far away, and based more than a little on the facts of today. A climate crisis happens in 2023 and throws the world into disarray on a global basis. Better get stocking up on toilet rolls then, folks! No really, don’t. Not for the third tim
  4. Finished - basic base as I didn’t want to overwhelm the figure
  5. No! Not the Bowie album Six 1940s American young ladies Beryl Monica Sandy Kate Nora Jane
  6. The armoured cuirassiers were the 'shock troops' of their day, ready to smash through any weaknesses in the enemy line and win the victory. None were more famous than the French, with the image of thousands of them pouring over the field of Waterloo as one of the most instantly recognisable in military history. 6e Régiment de Cuirassiers 285 men The regiment nominally consisted of four squadrons each of two companies, each company having 100 men. Blue short-tailed coatee. Facings of orange collar, blue cuffs, orange cuff flaps, lapels and turnbacks for 6th regiment. Pewter buttons, silve
  7. So my matchbox mystère build has got to the point where there is going to be lots of “waiting for things to dry” so I’ve decided to start this to fill the gaps was going well cleaning parts for the figure but went down hill on the bike with a dose of “ amazing jumping PE “ - need to scratch build replacements now Anyway that’s it for today will pick up again tomorrow evening
  8. German StuG III Crew, WWII Era (MB35208) ”Their Position is Behind that Forest” 1:35 Master Box Ltd via Creative Models This new figure set from Master Box is designed with the German StuG III in mind, although it will probably adapt very well to any similar WWII German AFV. It arrives in a figure-sized box with end-opening flaps, which is standard fare for figures, even though they’re a little easy to crush when stacked flat. Inside is a single sprue of grey styrene that contains parts for five figures plus some pistol holsters, helmets, magazine pouches a
  9. Our Route Has been Changed Modern War Series kit No.1 1:24 Master Box Ltd Master Box have seen a market for some well-sculpted, modern mouldings of soldiers for a while now. This looks to be the first in a new 1:24 scale series. This set arrives in the de facto standard figure shaped box with a painting of the included figures on the front, and parts breakdown with pictorial instructions on the rear. On opening the end of the box, you're greeted by a re-sealable bag containing one large sprue and one smaller one containing all the parts you'll need to build the two f
  10. Relatively new member been posting my latest build in aircraft, which is a subject i've only recently returned to after a 12 year break, but have been dabbeling with figures on and off for a while so thought I’d post some of my recent (ish) completed builds. Masterbox 1/32 French Hussar Airfix 1/32 French Infantryman Masterbox 1/35 "Die Skatspieler"
  11. As announced, I'm entering with something unusual to me as this thing used to crawl rather than fly
  12. Another one of those builds making it over from the the 11th Hour GB. From what I understand, these third series of cars where specifically built for Russia - though that does not aid in the matters of trying to determine what colour they were finished in. This particular build represents a vehicle captured by the Austro-Hungarians. Their plan was to utilize a mixed platoon of vehicles collected from both captured and their own designs, and to be utilized in the breakthrough created on the Italian front. Time ran out though for the chance to finally realize the potential of the armoured
  13. Take One More Grenade! (MB3564) 101st Airborne (Air Assault Division, Europe 1944-45 1:35 Masterbox via Creative Models The 101st were the elite light infantry of the US forces on D-Day, and were amongst the first in and last out, earning their reputation as "the tip of the spear", and their exploits were documented in the HBO series Band of Brothers in some detail. This figure set from Masterbox depicts four Screaming Eagles in an urban situation about to chuck a grenade into a building while stacked up outside it. Arriving in a de facto standard figure-si
  14. Hi folk's,WWI is a subject I've been fascinated with for year's,recent delving into my families history has revealed how many member's served throughout it's five year's my Grandfather was an artilleryman,Great Grandfather served in the Canadian army as a tunneller then engineer and Great Uncle died in the mud of Passchendaele in November 1917 add in brother's we are into double figure;s as a family.I tried to be a bit different when it came to choose a subject aircraft would be the preffered object but decided on confronting my weakest modelling skill figure's.
  15. Hi all, This is my stab at the 1/35 Masterbox 'WW1 British Infantry before the attack' diorama set, fun to build, I hope i've done the kit and the men who went over the top justice. Ive now revised the trench with a simplified muddier terrain, seen new pics below. Cheers Simon PS: the title comes from a song by New Model Army :-)
  16. Found the construction of this kit a chore, but it really came to life for me during the weathering stage.
  17. Been working away at this one for a few weeks, I need to get most of the weathering effects done, and a few figures painted.
  18. The Desert Fox I used the Pz.Kpfw.III Ausf.L from Tamiya and a figures of Masterbox. The model is made for the customer. Thank you that have glanced. Best regards Martin
  19. No Soldier Left Behind – MWD Down 1:35 Master Box Master Box figure sets often tell a story, and this one tells it well on the boxtop. A Military Working Dog (MWD) has been injured in the course of duty, and is awaiting casevac while two handlers comfort him and two more provide covering fire should it be necessary. The Chinook is coming in hot in the background and the beginnings of a dust cloud are being kicked up. An excellent painting, and the inclusion of the name of the sculptor A Gagarin gives a clue as to the quality of the box content. Inside is a single sprue of grey styrene
  20. Hi Folks,just laying down a marker for later in the GB with another WW1 themed Vignette this time a very simple affair of standing figures as I've been so impressed by this companies figures and getting into detail painting for a change.I have a couple of ideas for the theme of the piece but must crack on with a couple of 1/72 Aircraft builds for other GB,s so mid-August start after the hols.
  21. Hi folk's,I was in the LMS yesterday and he had re-stocked the Masterbox section and among the plethora of superb but drab coloured subjects this fella stood out a mile so with the pot of NATO black which was all I went in for he came home too! So laying down a marker for later in the GB here he is,I have never modelled a horse before but Giemme's showing the way here in the GB so I have a great point of reference,first the box art. A nice choice of regiments and colours on offer. one single sprue covers all.
  22. Hi folk's same base kit as Darby's built for the Vignette GB we took different approaches to the time frame and Regiment, Here we see the Durham Light Infantry going over summer 1917.
  23. Hi folks,this is my proposal for this GB,it's Masterbox's newish release of WW1 British infantry climbing over the top of their trench.Here's the box. Inside there are four beautifully molded sprues two for the trench alone although some parts are duplicated. And here's the two sprue's relating to the trench That's the basics as the build progresses more of the detail will be revealed.The parts are beautifully molded and should be a good canvass for more detail,If built as per the box you get a nice but strange looking affair I'm thinking of boxing in the base out of balsa then dec
