  1. 48N6E of 5P85S TEL S-300PMU SA-10 Gumble (82929) 1/72 HOBBYBOSS via Creative Models The S300 Missile System (NATO codename SA-10 Grumble) is a Russian developed long range Surface to Air Missile System. The 48N6E part designates the missile which is a newer one doubling the range of the older system. This is a 1500kg missile with an 143 Kgs warhead. The missile has a range of upto 150 kms up to 32000 feet. The 5P85S designates the TEL (Transport erector launcher). This carries 4 missiles. Form stop to ready takes 5 minutes then there is a 22 second reaction time. The system can work with the 64N6 Big Bird target acquisition radar, the 30N6E1 Tomb Stone target tracking radar; and the 5N66M/76N6E Clam Shell height finding radar. The vehicle chassis is the same across the Radar, command centre, and launcher vehicles. The Kit This is a brand new tool kit from HobbyBoss, first inspection reveals some very finely moulded parts in the box. The vehicle chassis is moulded as one part, and all the missile tubes are single piece hollow moulded. As well as the single chassis part the Cab & rear command module are single part mouldings, there are a further 4 spures, a clear sprue; and 8 rubber tyres. Construction starts with the chassis, even though the single part moulding is impressive it still needs the drive train and cross bracings to be attached. Once these are on the rest f the axles, suspension units and wheels can be fitted. The rubber tyres fit straight to the wheels. Next the storage boxes afix to the chassis and the hydraulic levellers for when the TEL is active. Once the chassis is complete we move onto the cab. The internal structure for the driving position is assembled and fitted into the single part cab moulding with the glass going in first. The underside parts can now be fitted. A frame is attached to the chassis and the Cab unit fits onto this Next u the module behind the cab is assembled and attached to the same frame. The TEL part of the unit is next to be assembled. Care must be taken with this in order for it to move. The main rear floor is then built up with mud guards being added along with tool lockers between the rear axles. The TEL mechanism then fits under and through the flooring so that the supporting parts are under the floor, the mount for the missile tubes is a above the floor and the raising hydraulic jack goes through the cut out and joins them both. The four single part missile tubes have their end caps attached and then can be mounted to the launcher. In front of the tubes the missile control module is then built up and attached. Once this is done the rear parts are then attached to the chassis. Decals Decals are provided for 9 different launchers, all with differing camo schemes. There is no information whatever about these schemes which is disappointment given the quality of the kit. Conclusion This is a great looking kit from HobbyBoss and their attention to detail is to be commended, only let down is no information for the decals. Overall high;y recommended.

  2. Hello All, I have been looking at all of the group builds on Britmodeller the last week or so thinking what ones can I join (I would like to join a few but I must be realistic). My modelling time has been short of late as in August I was made redundant from my job when the 80% furlough scheme finished (yeah - funny that!) and I then started another job 3 weeks later (yes I know I was lucky there). I have thanked my old place of employment for playing for my holiday with my redundancy money and the deposit for a new car (70 plate Nissan Juke if you must know). I now work for the Fire Brigade in their IT deptartment - I love it there. The work/life balance is amazing compared to my last place and I am enjoying the challenge - however it also means I am dead to the world when I get home. So I thought I would enter the longest running/just started GB with what I am hoping will be an easy build! As I understand it, SAM's are allowed in this GB? With that assumption in mind I have picked out the Trumpeter SAM-6 from the stash. I thought I would break up the aircraft models with this little beastie. Not much to look at huh? Onto the sprues... exciting! I am going to go for the Polish one as that seems interesting to me for some reason. Can anyone make heads or tails of that? I know my record on previous GB's isn't the best, but I do have to admit I did finish the model in my last GB I joined the "model kit you built as a kid" one. I just haven't posted any pictures of it... see below. Those micro-missiles really do bug me. I might look at them in a few years. So the plan is to get a simple kit done and painted. I do have another idea for this one, but I will need to see if the Postman is kind to me. Kind regards, Dazz
  3. This should keep you NATO boys on your toes. I picked this kit up a number of years ago and I might as well pull it out. I'm only in 2 other Group Builds, what's one more! It looks pretty good in the box, although I've said that about Trumpeter kits before and been burned, so we shall see. I will build a Czech one, just because it's camouflaged as the Russian one is straight green.

  6. Camouflage & Markings, Eastern Front 1943 Scale Armour Modelling This is a first for SAM Publications, a book on the armoured fighting vehicles of the Eastern Front in the Spring and Summer of 1943, which is when the Battle of Kursk took place. Starting with the background of 1943, it moves on to explain tank production of both sides, including numbers built, numbers of lend lease etc. Of particular interest is the chapter concerning German regulations over colours and their usage. The photographs are refreshingly new, some are familiar but the majority are not to this reviewer at least. There is even a Willis jeep in yellow camouflage and in use by the German army. The colour plates are scattered throughout the book and show familiar vehicles such as Tigers, T-34s, and Panthers, but there are also SPG’s, halftracks, anyone fancy building a green Matilda? There are a number plates for tanks used at Kursk, with their unit markings, camouflage and charts of army components for both sides. There is also a summary of events of how the battle was fought. Conclusion Although this book only has sixty five pages it is packed with useful information, particularly for the modeller with some very unusually coloured vehicles that would make great subjects to model. As a first publication in this field SAM have set the bar high and I look forward to seeing what else they decide to publish. Highly recommended. My thanks to Dave Wardle, (Panzer Vor!!!) for reviewing this book. Sample provided with thanks from SAM Publications
