  1. First post here, I reckon since I moved to the UK, I should start contributing to the local scale modeling forums HEMTT M983A2 tractor by Model collect, with PE set by Tetra models, in 1:72 scale As this was my first modern vehicle model (and first model with tires and windshields), I'd be curious about some feedback, especially on things like: tires weathering - not really 100% with this, went with pigments and by the time I didn't like it, it was too late to go back windshield dust effect - I don't find the final effect particularly realistic looking,
  2. Hello dear modellers and aviation enthusiats, I recently found this nice forum and happy to be a part of it. Since february i found my passion in aviationart again. The love for pixelart is heavily influencing my current works, but i also enjoy rough sketching. If you like it you can find more recent updates on my instagram account (@saschaschindelholz). Here is a small collection of recent works:
  3. Hand Pallet Truck Set (35606) 1:35 MiniArt via Creative Models Ltd Pallets are a great way to store and move goods in modular chunks, and the pallets are cheap, made from ugly but strong wood stapled together so they're almost disposable and frequently find their way onto bonfires. To move them around they have slots for forklift trucks to slide into, but for small lifting jobs there is the pallet truck, which is a hand operated device with a pull-lever that you also use to pump up or release the hydraulics that lift the forks and allows you to move the heavy pal
  4. This is my build of Trumpeters type 45 kit 1:350 scale. Having built the Airfix kit, which in my opinion is a bit of a dog due to how they designed the parts to fit together, or not, I was looking forward to building the more complex Trumpeter offering. As Trumpeter kits go I have seen them do better, there is more sink then usual and some issues so far with positive fit too but on the whole ok. the kit comes with a fair amount of etch much of it for surface detail such as grills and doors. I will be adding to that with the Atlantic Models etch and a gras barrel for the main gun.
  5. Hi All, Just completed this Street Fighter. Thanks for viewing, for more photos of this tank click on the link : http://ptearsenal.blogspot.com/2020/03/challenger-ii-street-fighter.html
  6. USAF MD-1 Towbar Early & Late (191548 & 191648) 1:48 VideoAviation Our friends at VideoAviation specialise in accessories for our aircraft models such as ground-handling gear and weapons sets. These two sets from them depict the two versions of the USAF’s trusty MD-1 Towbar that debuted in the 80s and is still in use today. The original design was updated to improve the operation of the transport wheels by adding an additional damper and wider wheels and tyres, presumably to improve its handling during transport to and from the apron.
  7. Got another one. This was actually my original Division diorama idea that I finally put together. The vehicle and figures (once again) were painted up some time ago. I just decided to bite the bullet and do the snow Enjoy Thanks for looking ^-^ Gaz
  8. Hello, all, Just got an email from Caracal with news and description of new and reprinted decal sheets. I thought some of you might be interested in seeing them, as some of the subjects have been recent topic discussions. The one we ALL have been waiting for on the FJ-2/3 Furies is not among them, doggone it! I do not have an affiliation with Caracal, nor do I receive any consideration or compensation for mentioning their products, but I have sent them yet another request to do the Fury sheet ASAP as well as a sheet of WW2 FAA codes in white and red with white outline in both 1/72
  9. Here's another query respectfully submitted to the hivemind. I am planning an early F-15, and now that Scale Aircraft Conversions have belatedly introduced a set of white metal F-15E gear legs, I'm wondering whether they would be appropriate. I know that the wheels of the E are larger than those of the earlier Hens, but what about the legs themselves. The nosegear leg appears to be pretty constant throughout the aircraft's evolution, but I'm unsure about the main gear legs. TIA.
  10. My fellow modellers good evening. Today I've finished my Bae Hawk T Mk1 in 1/48 scale from Airfix. I've probably exaggerated with my modeller's skills, but I've tried to replicate this beautiful (for me) display airplane as appeared in 2010 and piloted by Flt Lt. Tom "Cinders" Saunders. This is the real airplane: Bae Hawk display by Franco Segato, su Flickr photo taken from www.valleyaviationsociety.net Photo right to Neil DunridgeI and published only for modeller's discussion. I was a little bored of the Hawk in all black or grey as in my display ev
  11. Hey, After several years of AFV and plane modelling I feel ready for an excursion in the maritime world I was eyeing some of the post war aircraft carriers but I think I should start smaller with a destroyer, for instance. The only problem I have is choosing the "right" beginner kit from the plethora of available options. Here are a few corner stones I have in mind for the selection: - price not over 50 GBP / 50 Euro - scale should be 1/350 - cold war or modern era subject - PE parts are OK; even resin/metal add-ons can be considered
  12. Hi folks, I am newly returned to the hobby, after a number of years away. Until now I have always modelled British armour - most from WW2 and the first Gulf War. But I fancy a change. I have always been interested in the Israeli Defence Force, and their unique methods of acquisition and engineering of their AFVs, so as to end up with vehicles which suit their particular needs, and 'supply chain'. So, I'm starting out with Meng's Achzarit Early HAPC. It's a very interesting vehicle, and a typical Israeli 'product' - old Russian tank, plus a lot of ingenuity and components acquired f
  13. So a little while back I was thinking how I could use up some of my excess figures without overcrowding other ideas for dioramas I have (got a bit of a ridiculous number going on lol), and I came up with an idea for a scene from Tom Clancy's: The Division video game. Base idea would be a group of soldiers - supposedly part of the Joint Task Force - from the game being pinned down on a street by a 'cleaner'. With this ide,a I can use three soldiers that I currently have, plus an old re-purposed Dragon SAS soldier or two, for whom I will make some air tanks and repaint. I've noticed
  14. So I received the Academy M1A2 TUSK last year, asking for it in part because I spotted the Miniart Modern U.S. Army Tank Crew set. Unfortunately, that set is still listed as 'Coming Soon' even when a new one, the USMC crew set, seems to have been simultaneously announced and released >< As I understand it, the Marine and Army crew uniforms are quite different, so you couldn't pass one off as the other. What is particularly frustrating is I always make the Army version (seem to have more gadgets on them), but all the modern tanker figures seem to be Marines, and for some
  15. Hiya, folks. I finished my Willys, so it's time for something new. This time I decided to build something more modern. I found this Grizzly in my stash. I bought it once in Berlin for a bargain price due to the box damage. It's an easy to build (i hope) model with no interior. It has lotsa mistakes - too bad. I'll try co correct some of them. Here's what's inside the box: But first, the box itself... Rubber tires. Some PE parts. Clear parts. And the sprues. The Hull. I also started on lower hull and suspension. So far everything fits fine, no problems.
  16. I have been working on this model since July this year following a summer camp at RAF Conningsby. By chance I photographed BE taxiing out during a heavy downpour. I was soaked but it was worth it to obtain some excellent photos. The twin seat interior and cockpit etched sets from Eduard have been used, however I had to trawl the internet to get hold of them. I found them eventually in the USA and Germany.
  17. M1078 from Trumpeter, the whole is model out-of-box) Painted with tamiya and lifecolor, weathered with AMMO and AK)
  18. Hey! Didn't really know where to post this topic :/ I'm currently making an AH-64D Apache Longbow (Revell's kit) in 1:48 scale. I'm gonna be bored over the summer, so I was probably gonna have a crack at making an Middle Eastern diorama focused around the Apache. It will be just before a mission, so there will be people loading ordnance, maybe a quick bit of maintenance and nothing much else really. I was looking at Hussein El Kaissy's 1/32 one on https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iJjPWS18rTQ . It looks really nice. So, my question is; Where can I get these diorama accessories in 1/48? -
  19. Nerded out and built a Revell A319 kit I had lying around in a personalised livery (imaginary airline I had when I was a kid). Clearly I was a complex child. Anyway, here it is. A 'Lomasair' A319. still a bit scratchy here and there, but i'm learning. ...and here it is on the shelf next to my BA 319. See that here.
  20. A.M.U.R. Reaver released a new resin set to improve 1/32 aircraft such as F-15, F-16, F-111, A-10, CH-53, Swiss Hawker Hunter F.Mk.58. Set will contain four standard dispensers and four with double-sized cells.
  21. Out of box Italeri 1:72 scale kit. Hope you enjoy
  22. Next one! HB kit with TwoBobs decals. 1:48 scale. Enjoy!
  23. Hello everyone! As you can see it's my first post on this Forum so I'd like to say hello to everyone who visit my topic. For this model I used Bicentennial Eduard kit. I won't write about this kit, because I think everyone knows it. I'd like to ask you what do you think about my Phantom? And please be honest! Thanks for watching!
  24. Guys, so I'm thinking of modelling one of these bad boys (in the title) and was wondering if anyone could give me some help on the best 1/72 scale kits for the aforementioned. I really love these American jets and having modelled Mig-21's Mig-25s' Su-27's and the T-50 I was looking for a bit of a change. Thanks in advance P.S. I'm looking for readily available kits and if you include a link, please could it be to a website that uses GBP. Thank you very much for your time! P.P.S I love this forum!!
  25. Hey, I'd like to show you my F-14D Super Tomcat in 1/72 scale. The kit is by Revell and overall pretty good. When I built this model in 2012 I wasn't that concerned about cleaning flash, filling or sanding - and thats very visible in some areas. I still hope you like it! Cheers, Tom
