  1. I finished this one a couple of months ago but didn't then have a picture host site. There is a WIP so you can see how I built it. https://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/235040486-another-walker/&do=getNewComment I wanted a lived in look, like a WW2 Sherman for instance. Imagine this is the crews home for months on end. This build was inspired by a picture I saw some years ago. I cannot find it now though. Apologies in advance for the lousy picture quality. Hopefully you'll be able to make it out. Paint is Tamiya IJN green from a rattlecan. I've not added numbers etc so it can fit into almost any scenario. Snakehead decal from F1 car It's been paddling in some blue gunk! Spot the Porsche windscreen wiper. This is the only picture that shows the IJN green properly! The odd bit in front of the Commander is Sherman suspension. Barrels and bags are ancient Airfix railway bits. The gun on the RH mount is modified Gundam. Blue netting held fruit at one point. Transmission (Dur!) LH rear showing grilles (WW2 M4 etch set a quid from big H) LH again showing winch & strop for crew access (How do they get into AT ST's?) and the rockets.
  2. People here have shown interest in my past scratchbuilds so here is one I finished a couple of months ago. I thought I'd show it as a WIP first so that the build process can be seen and someone may pick up tips and have a go themselves. This one was inspired by a picture I saw years ago of a walker on a slight rise with the Commander looking out of his cupola as if he were on a scouting mission. I finished this one as if it could be from any universe so it could be kreiger, or an early form of AT ST from Star Wars or whatever you like. Basis is 2 Revell MBB Bo 105 helicopter kits (both 9.99 from home bargains). Sorry about the poor quality of some of the pictures. A simple cut'n'shut and we have two kits in one. The green grille is etch from big H that cost a pound. The LH side at a later stage. More etch, a tank hatch and above it a 1/24th supercharger forms the basis of a winch. The RH side again. Various other greeblies stuck on. Inside RH side. Inside of that hatch, and a gun clipped to the wall. Horrible paint job. I just thinned down some blue and slapped it on. I wanted a lived in effect. Imagine a WW2 Sherman that had been used for months. Inside LH and rear wall of crew compartment. Commanders seat and some instruments to monitor power source. You can also see a huge hinge for the LH main access hatch. Again, grotty paint. The crew. Helicopter seats and IP. Figures are WW2 German signallers? in 1/35th scale. Basis for the transmission. 1/24th Porsche 911 engine and a Ferrari transmission. The red bit is Airfix Guardsvan. More transmission detail. The yellow bits are V8 cylinder heads but were removed later. Basis for the feet. Bits from a computer hard drive and two Russian tank wheels. How to make the legs. Balsa core and lollipop stick shaped bits of plasticard with another strip of the same wrapped around the middle. All stuck together with cheap superglue. (TET bottle to show the size). Upper leg part showing tank wheel embedded into leg and 'axle'. And the finished leg. Greeblies stuck. Yes, Chevy rear lights and Guardsvan bits. The hydraulic struts are simply two interlocking tubes. The end bits are split pins. A bit of a close up shot. Now it's coming together, and ready for paint. Last chance to spot the greeblies. And, I forgot to mask off those little side windows. Doh! RFI coming soon.
  3. Star Wars AT-AT Detail Set (03117 for Bandai) 1:144 GreenStrawberry Star Wars and AT-ATs are synonymous to a person of a certain age (self included), and Bandai's recent release of a raft of new kits has been great for anyone wanting to build a collection of Star Wars related models in a couple of consistent scales, rather than box-scale as seems to be the way with Revell, the main European license holder of late. The Bandai kits are snap-together, but don't let that fool you. They are the pinnacle of the injection-moulded art, and you'd wonder initially how they could get any better with the addition of Photo-Etch (PE) parts. These sets from GreenStrawberry are engineered to appeal to the more advanced modeller who will end up painting their creation, and you WILL need Super Glue (CA) to attach the parts to your model. The sets arrive in a flat re-sealable pack, with a black themed backing card, a chunk of thick cardboard to keep the PE safe, a set of instructions (both of which are hidden within), and the sheet of PE brass on display in the front. They are designed to improve both detail, accuracy to the scale/CGI models, and add a scale-thickness to otherwise over-scale parts. The kit cockpit is first to be upgraded, with controls, a central column and details within the cab that are missing on the kit, and should be visible through the visor once completed. Staying with the head, the cheek cannons are fitted with curved "ammo feed" assemblies, and the visor/windscreen is upgraded with a frame to finish it off. The rear of the walker shows off its kit-part heritage with a quartet of 20/40mm flak shields amongst the greeblies, which are all replaced by much more detailed and accurate PE parts that give it a scale thickness unachievable with injection styrene. A raised panel that overhangs the back is also replaced with a thinner PE assembly too, and at the front of the "hump" a triple-layer of PE is inserted into the upstand to better reflect the intake that is present. Each of the feet has a PE skin applied to the curved back/forward pivot, and a curved triangular end cap added the lateral pivot points, while the last section gives a nod to the diorama potential of this awesome model. The Bandai kit includes side access doors that cover up an entrance and plenty of greeblies, which are lost forever if you snap the covers in place. With the removal of the internal fixtures, new frames and hinges are added, allowing the modeller to pose them open with convincing detail on display instead of blank plastic. Anyone fancy building a screen projector on Endor? Conclusion While the snap-together nature of the kit does no justice to the level of detail included in the box, this small but useful set will improve the finished model no-end, as long as you're ready with the glue and paint to integrate and weather the finished article. Very highly recommended. Review sample courtesy of

  5. Bit of a leap from what you saw on WIP to this but Sometimes that's how it turns out. As it turned out the beast wasn't too stable (as predicted) I couldn't get the autostab to work. Ahem. I cut discs from a kit box and used a product called mod podge (I think) it's like thick white glue, Slapped it on and plunged the feet into it overnight. Some paint and model railway foliage followed. I'd put kitchen foil around the cardboard, rather like a cupcake, when I removed it I found it had dried clear and vertical in places rather like splashes. Result! I then cut plasticard discs and epoxied the feet to them. Now it stands up! I also applied Johnsons Klear up to the 'knees' so it looks wet. 1/35th figure painting isn't my forte' so you'll have to forgive my crewman! Anyway, hope you like what you see here, The typ B7 Sumpfesel. It seems I didn't resize one picture. Apologies. BTW, Photobucket worked for me. Edit, The foliage looks like cricket stumps. Oops. As always, your opinion is valued and lessons will be learned, etc. Pete
  6. Hi here are a few photo's of my tanks if any one is interested. A Tiger, Walker Bulldog and Panther G. The Panther is still being painted. Any comments welcome. I know I have gone a bit mad on the chipping but I find it relaxing and it reminds me of my first car, a "T" reg Fiat! Cheers
