  1. Well this is me completely out of the comfort zone ! Picture from Scalemates I already have a flying thing in this GB so it's long overdue something that doesn't fly. I can't remember when I built anything other than an aircraft so this will make a nice change, however I will need some advice / hand holding along the way so don't go too far away ok ? Cheers Pat
  2. Hi guys, I finished my AFVClub Valentine MK II build (kit No. AF35185). You can find WIP posts here. It's an OOB build except some wiring added here and there. It's not based on any particular contemporary photo, but on a combination of several photos from Operation Crusader period. Painted with AK Real Colors No. 61 Light Stone. I tried to keep weathering to minimum as this tanks were quite new at this period. I used combination of Mig's North Africa Dust nature effects and pigments. This is also my first attempt to do a bit more professional photos (wit
  3. Hi guys, I started my new build recently. It's AFVClub Valentine II, kit No. AF35185. Except few frustrating and unnecessary issues, this is a great kit. Great details, very nice, fine molding. I decided to go with the 8th RTR option, from the Operation Crusader period. I couldn't find any exact reference photo matches of the markings provided by AFVClub, and these are closest I've got. At least according to my brief review of the terms, those should be OK to share for non-commercial use. Now I'll fast forward to the point where I
  4. Tank, Infantry, Valentine Mk.IV Tamiya | 1/35 scale Tank, Infantry, Valentine Mk.IV in 1/35 scale from Tamiya with RB metal barrels and Masterclub metal tracks. Painted with Tamiya acrylics; weathered with, Vallejo acrylic weathering effects, Ammo and Mig Productions enamels; Ammo pigments and dirt from outside. Comments and criticism welcomed!
  5. Tamiya's lovely Valentine with some Value Gear stowage plus some from the spares box. The figure is Mini Art with a Hornet head as I made a bit of a town halls of the kit figures. My only gripe is with the choice of schemes, one rather uninspiring British scheme & two Russian, it should be the other way round. I weathered it with oils & Mig pigments which turned the vehicle darker after I sprayed the tank with Winsor & Newton fixative - D'oh!! The Tamiya Archer beckons. Any comments or criticisms welcome as always. Pete
  6. Having been looking for the Italeri 1/72 Valentine for several months I just have met the Fujimi 1/76 one for a stupid price. As I never heard about it I'd like to know, whether is it visually much smaller and of lower quality than 1/72 Italeri one. Of course I know that the difference in hull length should be less than 4mm, but how much is it really in this case? Cheers Michael
  7. Am wanting to finish a Tamiya Valentine as in the photo below named 'Black Knight' in North Africa. Photo was taken in late 1941 or early 1942. Believe Light Stone would be correct for this time period but the dark sand shields are throwing me off as to how this tank was painted. I can see the white/red/white markings on the front of the hull and turret used during Operation Crusader. Any thoughts/comments/educated guesses on the camouflage? Thanks, Charlie
  8. In contrast to the plethora of German and Soviet WW2 AFVs the British tanks are not so well represented among the 1/72 kits. Trying to build a Valentine Mk VI (small turret) there's only ancient ESCI (recently labelled as Italeri) Mk II or a "wargame" extremely simple Armourfast kit of the same variant. Which one do you consider worth bothering with? Another important British infantry tank is a Churchill. And here again we have to choose (leaving 1/76 Airfix aside) between the 40-years old Hasegawa one, the ESCI/Italeri kit of similar vintage and the expensive new tool from Dragon. Is the
  9. Infantry Tank Mk.III, Valentine Mk.I MiniArt 35116 The first model of the Valentine (350 were built), it was not sent out due to problems from rushed production. The tank had a riveted hull, was powered by AEC A189 135 hp petrol engine and equipped with a 2-pdr. gun and a coaxial Besa machine gun. Its two-man turret forced the commander to also act as the gun-loader. (Wiki) Need to start another build today, it's Build Club and I can't get at my paint gear for another few days so.... Workspace ready - it's 1:15pm and I'm waiting for the guys to arrive shortly..... I was
  10. Hi Everybody Have any of you wonderful people got/seen/know of any pictures/drawings ect. showing what's on the inner sides and floor of a Valentine when the turret is lifted out and some images from turret and transmision ? Could you share? I'm building an open hull and haven't got a clue what is between the driving compartment and engine when the turret isn't there. I have a part view of the right hand wall which seems to be bare but that's it .
