  1. Hello friends, T29E3 completed, some photos ...
  2. G'day people, It has been a while since I have been able to get to the bench. I bought this kit a while ago when it was on sale as a mojo restorer. I took it along with me during a recent business trip. I was able to build it in sub-assemblies and transported it in a resealable plastic food tub to afford a level of protection during transit stages. I am not sure if it belongs here but as it is a naval based CIWIS system this seems the logical place. This build was mostly OOB, I only added a few small embellishments. The kit allows you to position the kit in both azimuth and elevation and I have posed mine as if it were engaging using one of the 9M311-1 (NATO: SA-19 "Grison") missiles, one of which is provided, The Kashatan M is a formidable piece of kit. It is armed with 2 x six barrelled Gsh-6-30 30mm cannons and up to 8 x 9M311-1 SAMs, this is not the system you would want to run into in a dark alley! The destructions tell me that it has the ability to engage up to five targets in a minute with a pK of 96-99% Anyhoo, onto the pics , cheers, Pappy
  3. After a nasty bout of Covid I have finally managed to find the energy to get this one finished and photographed. This is the excellent Takom kit with just a few additional details. It was painted with the Ammo Mig Berlin brigade paint set and weathered with pigments and oils. A WIP can be found here. I would also like to thank John @Bullbasket for the very helpful photos and Dan @Dads203, Ivan @ivan-o and @Scimitar F1 for sharing their knowledge. Not forgetting the moody black background shots. Not wishing to bore you all with an overload of photos but a couple more with a grey back ground. Hopefully that isn't too many photos but the different backgrounds do seem to bring out different details. All I have to do now is decide what to start next. Wayne
  4. This was intended to be a diorama but I only got as far as the tank and figures before I ran out of time, skills and interest. However, I think it's still worth a look. There's a ton more pictures here: There are also twelve pages describing the ups and downs of a four month build. The Tank is Takom, the figures are MasterBox and the scale is 1/35.
  5. Chieftain Mk.10 Berlin Brigade. Whilst waiting for a few new releases to materialise I thought I really should finish off some of the uncompleted builds that I have laying around. Inspired by @Big_Bad_Bill and his Mk.11 I decided to get on with my Berlin Brigade Mk.10. Most of the construction work has been completed but as there has been a few builds of Takom's Chieftains already on the forum I don't think it matters that this topic will be more about the painting. A brief explanation of the Berlin Brigade camouflage scheme with a little help from the Tankograd book. Up until 1982, British armoured vehicles in West Berlin were camouflaged in the standard pattern of green or green/black. With the deployment of D Squadron, 4th/7th Royal Dragoon Guards, the commanding officer started to challenge this way of camouflage as the vehicles always looked out of place in urban areas. After trials on cardboard it was decided that a rectangular pattern of white, grey and brown would best match the buildings, windows, doors and fences. Variations of the size and pattern of the scheme were to be kept to within two inches so that each vehicle would look identical making it harder for the enemy to determine the amount of vehicles or units. A few of the external details have been left off to make painting a little easier. Looking at the close up images in the Tankograd book I'm finding it difficult to determine whether there would have been an anti-slip coating applied. If it has it appears to be quite a light covering. There is a Berlin Brigade Mk.10 on display at a small museum in Maldon, which is not far from me and I was thinking of driving over to take a look but with the current climate that is probably not wise. So any help would be appreciated. Wayne
  6. Dear comrades... This is my first AFV model after a lot of aircrafts , I really enjoyed with the heavy weathering process. In that case, this is the awesome Takom 1/35 model kit, with MasterClub metal tracks. This is my second attempt to build a Merkava, the first one was in 2000 with a poor Trumpeter kit when I was a teenager that was abandoned by me after several frustrations . Here is a full Flickr album: https://flic.kr/s/aHsmRtfzCx
  7. I got a Stug for Christmas, i immediately start looking for a reference picture. I found this one from the Ardennes offensive. I’ve got a base on order that should set the scene nicely and just need to pick the figures up.
  8. Hello everybody... Im posting an M3a1 Lee. A type that my Grandfather trained on. The Tank i will build is from the Armored Fighting School at Ft.Knox Kentucky in 1942. I have a familial connection to these tanks. My Grandfather, this photo is from his wedding day.  He trained in them in 1941-42. He was originally part of the 4th Armored Division Headquarters company, under Creighton Abrams. I did not build his specific tank, at least im not sure i did. Currently i have no records of serial #’s to go by. However the tank i am building was used at the school he was stationed at, during the same time period. Theres room for hope that he was in this vehicle at some point. He ultimately went on to serve in the Pacific with the 706th Tank Battalion in 44-45. The model i used is Takoms Excellent cast hulled M3a1 Lee. The WIP from the Trainers group build. Ironically i realized after the fact. That i started the build just two days, after what would have been his 100th birthday. Questions, comments, jokes, or good stories ? Dennis

I will be starting this in a few days once i finish up my other two Group builds. Questions, comments, or jokes if you please. Dennis PS : I will add the sprue shots in my 1st post. This is a brand new kit and never opened until now.
