  1. I was given this model that had been slightly started. Wing halves had been assembled. Also the filling with windows for the cargo door has been glued. Every planned Ju 52/3m that I have is for a prewar plane where the cargo door has to be replaced and new corrugation has to be built. Now I needed to find a postwar plane with the cargo door. I found one but I had to build a door at the front. I used part of the unused cargo door for this. The Italeri kit has some spots that are missing corrugation. So i made a quick "dirty fix". As this pla
  2. I started this in the Nordic GB but got big problems with the fuselage joints so it didn't get finished. I restart the thread here instead. The group build made me dig this one out of the stash. But as usual, building out of the box isn't for me. First, I need to fill all of the small round windows. For this I will need lots of 5,5 mm plastic discs and found that a paper punch will make them, but it is hard to make them without wasting lots of plastic card. A piece of cardboard was used in helping to steer thin plastic strips to minimise th
  3. I'm getting ready to paint my SAS landrover kit in the pink scheme used in Yemen, and im curious how far the pink extended? We're these vehicles overpainted in the field or was this a more systematic application of color? In other words, did the pink extend under the vehicle? Into the footwells? Behind the seats? Into all the nooks and crannies? Or was it a more haphazard overspray on top of dark green paint? Thanks in advance.
  4. This is the 1/35 Accurate Armour SAS Longline strike atv, released last year. Possibly the hardest build I’ve ever had, nearly all done under magnification. For an expensive kit I was disappointed with the instructions with parts numbered in error, poor assembly sequence and just unclear in some parts. Maybe because it has been digitally designed the fit has to be super accurate as I found it very difficult to sit everything square, and the suspension just wouldn’t extend far enough for the vehicle to sit at the right height. However the seats are a thing if beauty, as is the .50 cal, and
  5. Hello all, Here is my recently completed Sherman diorama I entered for the M3/4 group build - M4 Sherman meeting up with an advance party of the 2nd SAS Regiment, Normandy 1944. The build thread is here The Sherman is Tamiya's great M4 'Early' kit with Legend stowage set and some other odds and sods. The SAS jeep is Italeri's Commando Car, with Dragon figures and some extra kit from the spares thrown on. The base was pre-made and bought of a famous auction site.
  6. Hi Everyone, It's been a busy summer and fall. Have to mention, if you have a chance to visit, the Canada Space and Aviation Museum in Ottawa is absolutely first class. Posting these pics more as a test after moving off PB. Village Photos does seem to work quite well at the moment. Ongoing vignette/environment for the LDRG truck and SAS Jeep. Many firsts again on this project including varying degrees of filters, washes and weathering. Scratch build on the rope is cotton string with paint, wash and mud. Scale doesn't look great in the photo, no
  7. I finally present SE-BDB “Agne Viking” my Roden DC-6 which began life as part of the Airliner III Group Build last year. Very near the end of the GB I messed up the finishing and had to strip the model back to the bare plastic and start again. As I admitted at the time I was fed up with it, other things got in the way and the DC-6 languished for about six months before I got round to re-finishing it. I used the “Independence” issue of the kit because it includes the round-tipped Curtiss Electric props fitted to early SAS DC-6s. The build is more or less out of the box apart fro
  8. Hi All Here's a relatively quick build of Tamiya's old Pink Panther. pretty much OOB except for some stowage items out of the spares box and some replacement head light lens. A quick and easy build(except for painting the number plate, I gave up in the end), which I will make a decent base for. Mainly built out of respect for a character I'll be having a beer or two with at the end of the month and who spent plenty of time behind the wheel of these back in the early 70's. Hope you like it.
  9. Hello all, Here is a recently completed project involving Tamiya's 1/35 SAS jeep and LRDG Chevrolet 'Command Car'. All completely OOB, save for some extras I added from the spares and scratch built myself. The cap badges are from my personal collection. I'm relatively new when it comes to figures, so they're not my strong point. I enjoyed adding some 'captured' German kit to each vehicle. Build thread is here Thanks for looking. Dave
  10. Hi Folk,s and nearly a happy new year,laying down a marker for some armour related stuff I want to do in the coming month's as a change frommainly wingy thing's I thought I would start with a couple of small subject's that I had not done before so Tamiya's old but still nice Jeep (SAS seems to be well represented on BM not so much the standard Jeep) and the good old universal carrier which I'm delighted to find has the TT marking's of the 50th Northumbrian Division on the sheet,all have figures so a small dio base will be in order.I hope later to cover A Dragon Wagon wi
  11. Hello all, Here is a side project to my current (and next) aircraft builds - A 1/35 diorama with a SAS jeep and LRDG Chevrolet truck. Two classic Tamiya kits, ones which i've built in the past. These will be OOB with a few additions from the spares: Been wanting to do this for a while as these old Tamiya kits remind me of my youth. I've always been interested in the history of the SAS and LRDG but only recently have I read up in more detail about the units during the Second World War. Looking forward to it!
  12. Hi All, I have this in my stash (well, small pile of kits) and was going to build this before I started my Chinook (now complete). I've decided now would be a good time before I commence any GB's next year. I've seen a few fantastic builds in the RFI's (no pressure!!) but not in WIP (though could be wrong) I'm trying Flickr for the first time (instead of PhotoBucket) and it's a bit of a phaff to post pictures!! Any tips on making things easier?
  13. Hi Guys I had a fews days and felt like doing something simple before my next build, so I settled for the Tamiya SAS Jeep. I am getting to like Tamiya more now as the kits seem to be of quite good quality. It was a nice easy build and gave me an excuse to practice my weathering technique (being a newbie). Below is the finished item which I hope may just compare to the other Jeep builds on here. I will be back in with my next builds in the new year as I have a few kits coming from Santa (Revell Pirate ship, King Tiger with interior and more)
  14. For this model I have to say a very big thank you to Vesa on the forum here for donating the decals to me for this model and also an equally big thank you to Ruben and LN Decals for his advice and assistance. Firstly this is an old Airfix kit so the parts don't fit very well at all but I'm quite pleased with its turnout. Also of note the model comes with 2 ladders from the floats to the fuselage by number 2 engine. I haven't seen this config on any of LN-KAF but have seen a single pole ladder to the wing so these had to be fabricated. As there are 2 different variations for LN-KAF markings
  15. Douglas DC-8-62 1/144 Minicraft (converted), Lima November decals. After the VC-10, the next best looking airliner is the Douglas DC-8, and the best looking of those are the shorter fuselage versions. The Minicraft DC-8 series of kits are amongst the very best airliner kits you can get, they are beautifully moulded, accurate, and have flawless fit. It's a funny thing about the Minicraft range, all the Douglas aircraft are really good, and all the Boeing ones are... well, I don't buy them. This is the 'Hawiian Air' DC-8-63 boxing, with the fuselage cut down to convert it to the sho
  16. This is the only vignette that I've ever done...about 8 years. I've always wanted to present my models as more than just a model but it just doesn't seem to happen. Here, we have the Italeri Commando Car that was built basically OOB with a few little tweaks. The figures are from Dragon's SAS kit. The wall I stumbled across somewhere, it looked right scale wise. I coated it roughly with filler, leaving a couple of sections bare, I think it worked well. I don't think I'll be a figure painter, many a modellers nemesis, might explain why I've avoided the faces. What's your thoughts please,
  17. Here are a couple of recent Tamiya SAS Jeep builds, have added photo etch and custom detailing. Feedback welcome. Sly
  18. Hello! I'm hoping this is the correct place for this post because there isn't a section that I thought worked better but never mind. I am building Airfix's C-47 as a present for my great uncle who jumped out of them during his time serving in the SAS in Malaya and Borneo but I need some help! I have no idea as to what paint scheme the dakotas were in when operated by the SAS during the conflicts in Malaya and Borneo, would anybody on here happen to know? I've done lots of searching in books and on the internet but to no avail. Thank you very much, Ben.
  19. Here's a recent discovery in the attic that brought a smile to my face. I reckon these must have been done around 1984/1985/1986 when I was in my early teens http://flic.kr/p/jj58cR http://flic.kr/p/jj4CQv http://flic.kr/p/jj5e76 http://flic.kr/p/jj72WA Pretty rubbish really, but brought back some great memories Happy days Justin H Oops I've posted in WIP not RFI, mods please move if necc. Not used to armour forums I suppose!
  20. Hi all I am a newbie to the site and new in the hobby - I started last summer, well the last thing I built was a Tamiya M3 halftrack in the seventies! so I consider myself a novice. I am blown away by some of the work I have seen you guys publish on here and it is really inspiring. I thought I would get your feedback, tips, hints etc on my latest tinker....see what you think
  21. I'm sorry this page is only in finish, but you can see video clip and picture. One SAS 737 was painted in Disney Planes movie colors. http://www.lentoposti.fi/uutiset/sasn_737_sai_kylkeensa_disneyn_lentsikat
  22. Pink Panther Update Set (for Tamiya) 1:35 Legend Productions Tamiya's SAS Pink Panther Land Rover kit has recently been re-released, which should please a lot of folks, and Legend have also re-released their excellent resin update set that improves both the basic kit, and adds the stowage that was typical of these highly personalised and heavily loaded vehicles, which sometimes had to stay out in the desert for extended periods. The set arrives in a small cardboard box, with a picture of the stet installed on the top side. Inside is a large bag of resin, which also contains another bag,
  23. Good evening everybody! Just started my second 737, and decided that this one should be a baby one. I bought decals of, of ln-decals.com a month or so ago, and decided to do the -600, or SE-DNX Here is my progress so far Robin
  24. Hello everyone Well, first of all i would like to claim myself a beginner. This is my second kit after a pause of 12 or so years (i remember almost nothing from those times except some details have to be painted before glueing). I mean i'm still learning. This is actually the first time i used putty, extensive sanding and a bit of weathering. Here i should stop whining. Basically it is built out of the box except for that it's a conversion of the A340 bloody 'Wiener Philarmoniker' (for some reason noone chooses to build SAS scheme). The Trents are from the Braz models. This was also the f
  25. Mjeloooo everybody! I am about to order some resin goodies for my Revell 737-800. I got my self two of them, and one of the is gonna be converted into a -600 in SAS colours. But I do have a question. The engines on the -600... Are they same shape as the -700,-800 and -900 series? Thanks Robin
