  1. Another GB proposal year has just started, and my table is, no it was empty From the Mediterranean Theater of Operations, in short MTO, again comes a group build proposal concentrating in one of the hottest and most variety packed periods in warfare. From late autumn of 1942, when the Operation Torch was launched, until late summer of 1943, when Operation Husky was completed, the ever increasing might of the Allied was still met by determined and stiff resistance of the Axis. Following their trail from the shores of the Atlantic and the Western Desert of Libya, through Tunisia this campaign raged until all of Sicily was captured. The battle raged on the seas, on the ground and in the air. Never before, and never after, this period was there so many types of aircraft and armour facing each other. One could say this was the last real attempt of the Luftwaffe Kampfgeschwadern to strike in the west. The mighty Tiger 🐅 tank appeared in Tunisia. Various ships delivered artillery and air support to troops fighting on the ground. Also... Eh, that list could be endless. In my opinion there's no need to pinpoint the theme to the map of the ground campaign and invasions, but have anything from the MTO during that period, as we know that everything affects something, somehow. Would You be interested to write your own chapter of it in 2025? V-P P.S.

  2. Here is my WiP. The first couple of pages were from the M3 Group Build last summer that I wasn't able to complete. Many thanks to @PlaStix for the migration over here. This is a very fine kit, with loads of detail and well engineered so it is actually quite easy to build. I had a lot of other things going on so I took my time, which is good too. No sense rushing this one. A Blitzbuild this is not! Paints were a mix of Tamiya, Vallejo Air, Vallejo...extra after market bits from Black Dog and MiniArt. Weathering aspects from AK and Abteilung. I am new to the 'dust' weathering powders, so I will work on them. Advice please... I can see how they really do add a level of realism to the model. Anyway, the WiP has all of this. Here are some images from the back terrace... Tomatoes and onions... This is Eek. Not sure of gender. Their sibling, aka 'Meek', is also a tuxedo, as is Big Mama. They are feral and live in the small jungle behind my house. I feed them. They are very curious. And the new set of shelves for ongoing 1/35th scale vehicles. Two so far... --John
  3. A really big tow vehicle. I love the box art, so I'll make this one. I have read that the cable for the tow is not flexible enough. I'll use the supplied copper wire piece for something else and use something better for the cable, probably string painted grey metal. I will also be adding chains. I have some tools and whatnot in other boxes of stuff, so I'll be using some of that. Lots of extra bits to be added along the way. But that's mostly exterior. First I have to build this beast. Luckily I have a few months to do so. It's my first large scale armour in quite a few years. Sprue... Decals, etc... I like this profile. ' Let me get some other stuff built and I'll jump in here next week. --John
