  1. Hello all, I was looking to buy an airbrush either an affordable AK airbrush or a cheap scale model shop one. Dual action of course. I do mostly car modelling in 1/24th scale. Are those tiny compressors worth buying at all? If i wanted something like an as-18 should I get one with a tank? What beginner setup would you recommend for around 100 pounds maybe just over?
  2. Bit of a weird one here. I've been cataloguing my loft insulation - a surprisingly arduous task. I came across six 'kits', for the want of a better word. Small little beasties, more or less snap together, moulded in bright green plastic. The only identification on them are 'Telegraph magazine' and 'Ford'. Me thinks these were a give away with the Telegraph magazine. One of the vehicles is definitely a Ford Capri - a splendid looking car. The other has the word Lotus moulded into it, and is obviously a F1 motor racing car. The final one is, I think, an midd
  3. 2019 has been my most productive year so far, although I suspect most of you wouldn't consider four models particularly productive. But here goes anyway... For anyone wanting to see more detail, the links to the RFI threads (with further links to the build) are in my signature. The year started with an almost completed piece of East German engineering. As such, before January was out, Revell's Trabant Universal marked my first completion: After that, (which was quite a long build), I decided to rebuild a Dodge Charger (but probably
  4. Hi all, Sorry for the delay in posting these, I was busy last night and have been running around a bit today as well. I found out this year about a car combat racing game called Gaslands, played with modified Matchbox and Hot Wheels toy cars. It's reminiscent of GW's Dark Future from the late '80s, but with a scrappier DIY feel to it, and the movement takes some inspiration from other template games like X-Wing. I finally took the plunge a week or so back and picked up a copy of the rulebook and a couple of die-casts to play with, and here they are armed and ready for b
  5. Adding another to my list of Matchbox kits needing built The pre-WW2 Jaguar SS-100 Here's a bit of trivia for you; Jaguar cars started out as Squire Sidecars, building motorcycle side cars, then building car bodies on to Austin 7 chassis, then Triumph chassis. As car builders they were SS Cars. The Jaguar series was built on a Triumph chassis, the number was indicative of the car's maximum speed. Post WW2 the letters SS were associated with an evil regime so William Lyons [the company founder] dropped the SS and took up the name of its most famous pre-WW2 sports car
  6. Hi everyone CARS-TOONS.MATER.Zvezda manufacturer, scale 1/43. I made a vignette for the customer. Kind regards Martin
  7. Hi all. I have been working on a 1/35 diorama lately but found the time to do a quick 1/24 diorama while taking a break from my present 1/35 diorama. This one is not all that. I'm not really a car guy but I had these kits on hand because I had planned to use them in a truck diorama. But, something else came up and I just decided to make a separate diorama for them instead. The diorama depicts a pedestrian crossing with two automobiles and a Lady, with a dog, crossing the street. The story tells a tale of a very impatient driver in the van trying to tell the driver in front of him;who is c
  8. Miniart have four new items from the kits, figures and accessories ranges out this month including: A Personenwagen Type 170V Saloon and Soviet SU-85 Mod. 1943 with Crew. https://www.wonderlandmodels.com/blog/article/new-miniart-sept-2016/
  9. Ok this was something I originally suggested way back in 2013 but then it was just for the airforce, this was a bit restrictive. It got into this years vote and I had completely forgotten about it and didnt remove the earlier restrictions. But it seems like there is still a lot of interest in this so its now opened up completely. So if it was made in Italy or wore the Italian colours then bring it along. I have always liked the flare and passion the Italians put into their designs and if that wasnt enough then add a few more cylinders or even an extra engine!! Which would you rather listen
  10. The latest plastic model car kit releases from Ebbro are now in stock. The brand new 1/24 Citroen 2CV Pickup and the iconic 1/24 Citroen DS19 accurately recreate the real life vehicles with Ebbro's characteristically high level of detail. For full details, please see our newsletter HERE.

  12. Laaaadies and Gentlemen Gather round, gather round... Its time for those of us from the dark side of modelling to come to the fore, with a GB of magnanamous proportions! Yes, alone, we fight against the dragons with a mere toothpick , but together, we can nuke the buggers!!! A Civilian Motor Vehicle GB, is just the answer we need. You name it,we want it in here, as long as its a Civilian Vehicle Cars, Bikes, Trucks, Racing Cars, and yes, even buses (gasp) The aim is to bring ALL the dark side genre's together, for one big mega GB This is your chance chaps, you never see enough car, bi
  13. While trying to pass the time on shift I just happened to think about another possible group build, which is bound to have some interesting and very colourful subject matter, an Italian Air force Group Build. The Italians have produced some wonderful and very colourful aircraft over the years, from the early flying boats of WW I and the 20s, the interesting and varied aircraft of WW II. Plus the modern stuff is well catered for as well. There are a good range of Italian aircraft and aircraft operated by the Italian air force so subject matter should be too hard to find. Though if numbers di
  14. Hi Everyone, I have a pair of Formula 1 cars in my stash which I intend to paint and build at the same time. I have the Revell 1/24 Red Bull Racing RB8 with decals for Mark Webber's version and a Revell 1/24 Mercedes GP Petronas MGP W01 which has decals for Rosberg and Schumacher (I will be building this one with Schumacher's decals). Here are the pictures of the box art as I haven't taken pictures of the sprues yet as these kits were washed at the same time as the F-14A. Redbull RB8 : Mercedes Petronas: Once finished, these 2 builds will join my McLaren F1 car which I finished last ye
  15. Hi Everyone, Here are my efforts so far in 2013. According to the number of photos I uploaded I have completed 11 models this year which is quite shocking for me. I know its not the end of 2013 yet, but I am still hoping that I might get 1 or 2 more done before the end of the year. I have HMS Astute, a Red Arrows Hawk and USS Ronald Reagan underway so hopefully once I get my workshop back to normal this weekend, I can make some progress on them. Anyway onto the photos. HMS Illustrious R06 - Completion date 13/01/13 HMS Daring D32 - Completion date 14/07/13 Dragon Iron Man Mk VII -

  17. Can't speak with authority since I've completed only a few car kits in 1/24, but wanted to have a therapeutic moan about Monogram. I've done a couple of Fujimis - OK albeit slightly crude in some ways - and Tamiya, which are of very high quality; and currently I'm building the second/third Monogram. First, the instructions are crude and basic, indeed in some ways they are inadequate, not showing clearly where the mating surfaces are supposed to be exactly. this can be ascertained after lots of fiddling, but frankly i'd expect better. Second, on this NASCAR racer I have a couple of parts the e
