  1. Another Matador resin model from my Telford haul! At first look, I thought this one wasn't as nice as the Fox, but once assembled and with a little paint, the fine detail really stood out. The kit includes two different upper hulls for the Mk4 or Mk5. I've assembled both just for comparison, but unfortunately there is only one driver's hatch to go around. Well recommended. FredT Mk.5 with Swingfire: [ Mk.4 With my BW Ferret Mk.2, (whose machine gun seems to have gone astray whilst taking
  2. I'm in with this oldie, to be finished in Spanish markings. Esci_AV8A_Harrier_Box_Art by Dermot Moriarty, on Flickr Good luck with your builds! Cheers, Dermot
  3. Dear Fellow Modellers Stimulated once more by the wartime film of Lancasters based at RAF Hemswell being prepared for a raid, I decided to try and bring the Airfix Matador Refueller up to scratch. Cue much time sanding down over thick mudguards and returning tread to the tyres. Steering wheel from Hauler and driver, wing mirrors and bridge weight marker from Dan Taylor modelworks. Am pleased to say that the Matador is still a nice kit given a bit of love and care, hope you agree? Hope you are enjoying your bank holiday? I spent part of mine working on the Airfix C-47 which st

    Fordson N Tractor

    To go with my David Brown tractor I was looking at a Fordson type N tractor, which from photos seem almost to have been more common. Virtually every photo or video clip I've seen shows the tractors with rear mudguards. The Accurate Armour website shows their finished model to have no rear mudguards, does anyone know if they are included and simply haven't been fittest? Also Matador list one without any photograph of the actual product, again does anyone know if it comes with mudguards? Any opinions from anyone who has seen/built got one in their stash?
  5. AEC 'Matador' Early, Model (0)853 Kit: AFV Club (AF35236) Started: Tuesday 12th January 2016 The Associated Equipment Company (AEC) also produced: AEC Armoured Cars Mk's I, II & III Armoured Command Vehicles All are covered by either AFV Club or MiniArt Way back in April 2014, Terry Ashley on the PMMS website highlighted all the major issues with this kit which are mostly Parts Numbering Errors! For all those of a sensitive disposition: No Tracks or Track-links will be harmed during the making of this model However, we may get a little Tyred! Section 1 refered t
  6. Here is my latest one I just finished. Built for my brother in law as a present for his 40th birthday. He's obsessed with Warsaw Uprising of '44 so I've decided to make him B-24 Liberator from 1586 Special Duty Flight - a Polish squadron delivering supplies for the fighting Warsaw in August and September '44 from Brindisi, Italy. Front of the plane is a little inaccurate as the Liberators from that squadron didn't have front guns but I kinda liked this side window and the guns so I've kept them. Again, some Photoshop work to blend the diorama with the background photo. Tha
  7. Here is my latest build - the little 1/72 ESCI AV-8A Matador. Obviously this kit has now been superceded by the new Airfix offering, but I picked this up at the October Yeovilton show for very little money and decided to go straight in and build it. In the box it looks lovely, with very fine engraved lines on old fashioned silver-grey styrene. Putting it together is another matter however, and a fair bit of putty was needed due to the very poor fit of the major components. However, once it's together, the shape looks fine. The decals were really tricky with some silvering, and the roundels on
  8. AEC Matador AFV Club 1:35 History The AEC Matador was an artillery tractor built by the Associated Equipment Company for British and Commonwealth forces during the Second World War. The Matador was distinctive with its flat fronted cab with gently curved roof, wheels at the corners and a flat load carrying area covered by a canvas or tarpaulin tilt. The cab was made from ash and clad in steel. It was equipped with a winch (7-ton load in its case) like all artillery tractors. About 9,000 Matadors were built, some going to the Royal Air Force (RAF). For the British Army it fulfilled a
  9. AEC Matador Crew Hobby Fan 1:35 If you fancy building a diorama or vignette using the AFV Club AEC Matador, reviewed HERE, then you might like to use these figures from AFV Clubs subsidiary Hobby Fan. The small flip top box contains four resin figures, each in a different pose. There is one driver and three troops for the rear seating, two seated and one standing, leaning over the sideboard. The two seated could be used elsewhere, such as the co-drivers position, should you so wish. The mouldings are very highly quality with a superb amount of detail, and although the torso and legs
  10. Are there any books or other publications which have plans and dimensions of the different types that can be built using the basic AEC Matador? I'm interested in doing some conversions; to crane/recovery, fuellers and possibly civilian types etc. and could do with a 'difinitive source'. Any helpful guidelines on this would be gratefully appreciated. cheers Mike
  11. AEC Matador, pics thanks to Rich Ellis.
  12. Hello all. Please may I add an armour model kit. I saw this announced at the IPMS UK Nationals. Rumour of a AEC Matador artillary tractor. I see now this is released by AFV Club. It is the early version and would have prefered the late version however a kit most wanted I am sure. I see the RRP tag though is £49.99. I wil certainly have one. Then what about conversion to late and even an RAF refueller. !!!! Thanks for looking.
