  1. A bit of a change for me as this doesn't have tracks or a big stick out in front that goes BANG! I've been toying with the idea of getting one of these for some time now, so while I was at Telford this year, I decided to buy one. It's an excellent kit with some very delicate parts. Built straight from the box, it makes up into a nice little model, but I don't do OOTB, so the knives, razor saws, files and drill bits were got out. One thing that does let it down a bit are the wheels, or to be more accurate, the tyres. The tread pattern is very poor, so I have ordered a new set from Hussar.
  3. Tamiya 1/35th NASHORN Pachyderm packs a punch First off, a HUGE thank you to @Ozzy whom, for reasons known only to himself, thought to gift this Nashorn to me. He did say, however, that he remembered the birth, life and untimely death of my previous Nashorn, and 'felt sorry for me'. I'm paraphrasing there, and putting words into his mouth, but hey, that's the gist of it. Humbled by his generoustiy and thoughtfulness, I have delved into my stash and am donating a boxed Tamiya 1/35th Cromwell to his Models for Heroes work.
  4. NASHORN TAMIYA 1/35th FRIULMODEL 'WINTERKETTEN' TRACKS. TAMIYA BRASS 88mm SHELLS FOR KING TIGER PZ IV STGB ENTRY 'PACHYDERM PACKS A PUNCH' The WIP *(Be warned, it's quite long!) can be found here: This is my second attempt at a Nashorn - the first having reached a similar stage, but then deciding to fall apart whilst I was rinsing bicarb/hair lacquer 'snow' off the thing! Whereas previously I've used chipping fluid to aid the chipping, fading and general worn appearance of the whitewash, here I've used nowt - the wh
  5. TAMIYA 1/35th WILLYS MB JEEP OOB COMPONENT FOR DIORAMA 'PIT STOP' TO COMPLIMENT SHERMAN M4A3E8 FEATURED IN RFI 'FACE OFF'. This was one of those 'spur of the moment' purchases from Hobbycraft whilst popping in to buy a single pot of acrylic paint. I had seen it on the shelf during previous visits and almost bought it then, purely for the figure and the small amount of stowage/tools/weapons that came with the kit. I had thought that they might be useful additions to my Sherman Easy Eight. In the end I didn't buy it then because actually they weren't that releva
  6. PLEASE VISIT PAGE 3 FOR THE 'FINAL' FINAL PHOTOS. TAMIYA 1/35th M4A3E8 'EASY EIGHT' (lastest tooling) With scratchbuilt armour upgrade. STGB entry: 'FACE OFF' I had intended making this OOB, but @Sgt.Squarehead supplied some rather interesting photos of WWII Shermans, one of which took my fancy. This was an 'Easy Eight' with added frontal and turret 'cheek' armour. The added frontal armour consisted of almost an entire glacis, removed from a presumably 'knocked out' Sherman and bolted/welded on top
  7. THIS RFI HAS BEEN UPDATED, REPLACING THE PHOTO LINKS TO PHOTOBUCKET. THERE ARE A FEW EXTRA PHOTOS. Here's my diorama entitled 'Lost in France', featuring the Churchill MkVII featured in the feature 'Saving a Churchill MkVII from the bin' WiP feature. I have REALLY enjoyed making this one! It's only my 2nd model and diorama since returning to modelling after a 35 year absence. Many positive comments, advice and tips have helped me improve along the way. Thank you all for your support, and thanks for looking! EDIT: 03/02/16 I have re-worked the bridge and added some mor
  8. I've just purchased this kit and it now resides in my stash, but I'm really looking forward to building it. I searched the forums and have perused 7 pages but I can't find a single thread for the Tamiya kit, only Takom, Academy, DML etc, Can someone with more patience provide a link for me? There MUST be at least one Tamiya 1/35th King Tiger in here somewhere! Thanks, Badder
  9. I'm calling this finished, although more work will be done on it when it's sited in its dio. I was toying with the idea of giving it a winter camo, but anyone who saw my last attempts with the Nashorn will understand my decision not to go ahead with it. However, I suspect my dio will feature the Sherman in the first stages of having its winter camo applied by a crewman or two. The Sherman is 1/35th Tamiya, with scratch sponsons (why Tamiya never rectified this glaring omission is beyond me) Also included some Tamiya stowage from their US Tank Crew set (which will also feature in the dio) The
  10. Not usually a fan of Soviet armour but there's something about Tamiya's new SU-76M I found appealing. This is a straight OOB build. I used Xtracrylix Russian Tank Green for the overall colour and this was weathered with filters & washes. The figures were painted with Humbrol enamels, and yes, the commander does have a remarkable likeness to Vladimir Puttin! image hosting 5mb upload pic greenshot adult image adult photo sharing photo hosting 20mb image hosting imgupload Thanks for looking
  11. This is Tamiya's new kit of the Jagdpanzer IV L/70 (V) Lang. Built virtually OOB. Painted with Tamiya acrylics, and Humbrol enamels. I given the lower half a "Wet Look", as I'm planning to put it on a diorama. The working sight function seized up when a cote of paint was applied, otherwise the kit goes together with no problems at all. free uploader adult photo sharing gif uploader image hosting 15mb host image free photo hosting free photo hosting image url online photo storage images upload images hosting Thanks for looking
  12. This is Tamiya's Mid Production Tiger I. I added a set of resin Zimmerit by ATAK. It is very thin resin that is just attached to the kit in the required places. The set has a replacement mantlet and escape hatch that are a straight swop for the kit parts. I've never used this product before, but I can recommend it very highly! I used Tamiya acrylic to paint the tank. The turret numbers are painted on. The figure is from Tamiya's Panther G and is painted with Humbrol enamels. I replace the tow rope with brass wire and to give the tank an autumnal look, I added some paper leave
  13. This is Tamiya's old Stug IV. I replaced the kit's armoured skirts with thinner ones made from plastic card and replaced the tools with better detailed items from the spares box. The tracks are the kit's rubber band ones. Tamiya acrylics were used for the paint scheme, and the mud is weathering pigments mixed with PVA. The figure is a Dragon one, also from the spares box. image uploading site upload gambar pic host photo uploading websites image hosting adult free picture upload click image upload adult picture hosting Thanks for looking
  14. To Tamiya's wonderful Jagdpanther I added a metal barrel, some metal tracks, and a set of etched side skirts, I also replaced the kits plastic tow cables with picture wire. The camouflage scheme was done with Tamiya acrylics and weathering was achieved with various filters and washes with chips and scrapes applied. The figure is from the kit, painted with Humbrol enamels and I used Tamiya's uniform badges decals. image hosting 15mb how to screenshot on windows 7 image url upload photos image hosting no sign up upload pics image hosting 30 mb im
  15. Tamiya's old Krupp Protze, built OOB and loaded down with supplies. It is planned to go along side my Tiger on a diorama I have planned. Tamiya acrylics were used for the base colour, with various airbrushed tones of buff to give it a dusty look. upload gambar free photo hosting photo sharing websites image hosting over 5mb upload gif from url upload image online images hosting screen shot on pc Thanks for looking
  16. This Tamiya's old kit built OOB. I used it to try out a different weathering method. After spraying the model all over with Tamiya acrylic dark green, I applied progressively lighter cotes of heavily thinned enamel buff, almost as if they were filters/washes. Once these had dried, I used a broad flat brush, dampened with white spirits, in vertical strokes to streak, blend and remove the thin cotes of buff. I got a result that looks like a dusty tank that's been rained on to give it a streaked, dusty finish. A raw umber oil pin wash deepened details, and a graphite pencil in selecte
  17. How do chaps, Thought it was about time I got back in to the saddle and did a build. I built the original PzIII.L version some years ago and was really impressed how it went together. It dates from 1993 and still stacks up really well (and better in some instances ) against todays kits. Etch parts and alu barrel that come with the kit. These also come with the StuG III A/B kit that Tamiya produce (on my to buy list) Lower hull with axles fitted. Etch grill fitted. Exhaust and heat plate? fitted to rear hull. Upper hull started. No problems here. Spaced armour fitted t
  18. This is Tamiya's new Nashorn. I replaced the kits vinyl tracks with a set of Dragon's Magic Tracks left over from a PZ IV, but the rest is all OOB. Its a lovely kit, just falls together with plenty of detail. I was a bit disappointed with the crew, their poses are good, but they just don't seem as sharp as Tamyia's usual stanadard for figures I painted the model with Humbrol enamels, starting with the three colour camouflage scheme over which I applied random splotches of masking fluid, before airbrushing a misty cote of matt white before I started thw weathering,and I had a great time with
  19. This is virtually out of the box. I added the jerry can and storage rack and made an air identification flag from masking tape and decals. The figure came form Tamiya's European issue of the Kubelwagen, I just added a helmet rather than his field cap. I used Humbrol enamels and used filters, washes and chipping to weather the model. I dusted the model by adding some drops buff to Humbrol's matt varnish and misting over the lower half and around the sides, top and insides. take screen shot prntscr image hosting no sign up screen shot on a pc image hosting tinypi
  20. Tamiya's release of the SD.Kfz.250 as Rommel's Half Track dates back a few years. Even so its not that bad a little kit. I replaced some items, such as the Notek light, pioneer tools and jerry cans with better detailed ones from the spares box and tweaked some details, such as weld seems to bring the detail up to newer levels, but it is a great stand alone kit. The tracks are link and length and go together very nicely. I used Humbrol enamels and weathered the machine with filters, washers, and chipping. A pale buff was lightly misted over the model to give it a dusty look. pict
  21. Tamiya's Horch is a very well detailed kit, for its time. The chassis has loads of detail, and it features some nice touches including a choice of stowed or opened cover with side glazing. When compared to similar models released more recently however, some of the detail is as refined as we find in newer kits. Eduard have a small, but fairly comprehensive etched set for the model that refines the kit's details, and provides items missed off by Tamiya. Progress so far: Etch replacements for the head lamp mounts and Notek light have been added and a better detailed road horn has replac
  22. Tamiya re-released their old 8 wheel armoured car as an Afrika Korps vehicle with new plastic parts (including two new figures), some etched bits and a turned aluminium barrel. I added a more detailed brass barrel, some more etched parts from Eduard and a set of resin wheels from Royal Models. Other bits came from the spares box. I used Humbrol enamels and the markings are from the kit. pc screen shot image hosting no sign up screen shot capture picture share image hosting free no registration screen shot tool Thanks for looking.
  23. I built Tamiya's awesome Dragon Wagon straight out of the box except that I just detailed the armoured covers hold back latches with some scrap card, and I replaced the M2 .50 cal with one from Accademy. The kit comes with etched parts and chrome plated light reflector dishes. Also included is chain, cord, and vinyl pipes. The model was painted with Tamiya acrylics and Humbrol enamels. I deliberately went for a mis match of olive drabb between the tractor and trailer to suggest a bringing together of different units. Weathering was a done with washes and filters and pin washes with Raw U
  24. Tamiya's LRDG has been around for a fair few years but it is a lovely kit. I replaced the vinyl tyres with resin ones and used Eduard's etch set to refine some details. The driver is from the kit and the guy in the back is from Master Box's LRDG figure set. I replaced the kit's Lewis gun with one from Master Box, who also provided the Vickers, SMLE and Thompson. The rest of the stowage is either included in the kit, or from my spares box. I mixed the colours using Humbrol enamels and weathered the truck with various filters and washes. Thanks for looking.
  25. What can I say about Tamiya's new Matilda that hasn't already be said? Not a lot really! It is just an excellent kit, the detail is fantastic, you just need to look at the insulating material on the exhaust pipes leading into the silencer to appreciate the level of detail Tamiya have incorperated. When I first got the model I compared it to their old version, no comparison! Just looking at the smoke dischargers shows what a quantum leap the new kit is. On the new model the bolt action on the firing mechanism is so fine it looks like you could work the bolt. The old kit doesn't even featu
