  1. Hi everyone. I'm back once again with yet another project that involved adding lighting to and this time I picked the MiniArt European Tramcar in 1:35 scale. I liked the idea of being able to create a small diorama with the included base and figures and was going to build it right out of the box. But once I looked closely as the instructions and then the actual parts I thought there was the potential to add some lighting and so it all began. The kit itself is quite well made with very little to no flashing and the level of details throughout is excellent. Some of the tiny parts are hard to cut from the sprues and the rails have far too many sprue joins to hold them in place. Why do you need about 6 joins to hold a thin rail that is about a half inch long? Other than that everything seemed to fit very well and I only had to make a few mod changes to incorporate the lighting. I don't pretend to be a pro and know very little about electronics and I may have used a little poetic justice with this build but I hope I have created a scene with many 'stories' within it depicting life in 1940's Germany. The German soldiers were a late addition to use up some of the spare space on the base and to give it some atmosphere. Anyway, on with the pics. I hope you enjoy them and thanks for looking.

  2. Hi Fellow members. I love these Hasegawa kits as they are usually of good quality and have plenty of nice details with minimal flashing or anything and this kit is no exception. The parts fit nicely with plenty of nice chrome parts that really emphasise the details and there is a nice little figure included to go with it. The sprues are of various colours and I suppose you could assemble this kit without painting it but I always think it best to paint them yourself, picking out all of the small details. Thanks for looking and I always appreciate any comments you may have. A video can be found HERE
  3. Asphalt Effects Weathering Set (AK 8090) AK Interactive If you’re an armour, air or a vehicle modeller, there’s bound to be a time where you want to depict a model that has been used extensively on the road, whether it’s a dry, wet or even frozen surface. The accumulations of dusty dirt, traffic film and mud are a common theme of road use, and are difficult to achieve in-scale. This set from AK is designed to help you achieve this. I have to start this with an apology to AK though, as they sent these samples in November (IIRC) 2019, but as I was refitting my workshop they absent-mindedly got put in a box that has been "elsewhere" until now. I’m sorry! You’ll be seeing a number of other AK items over the coming week or two, so keep an eye out. The set arrives in a clear plastic clamshell box, and inside are three 35ml plastic bottles with black screw-top lids that are safety sealed until you open them for the first time. Although they are tagged “Race Set”, they’re equally useful for the genres mentioned above, so even if you’re not a car modeller, read on. Two bottles are filled with pigments while the other is filled with an acrylic splatter liquid and labelled “Dirt”, a name that it lives up to with a general brownish grey colour viscous liquid inside. In addition, there is a small folded instruction booklet that for my own comfort I read with my Optivisor on, as my eyesight is shocking these days and the text is necessarily small. I have received so many other weathering sets from other companies that came without any instructions whatsoever, so it was refreshing to see some help being given without expecting you to buy the latest book or magazine to find out how to use the product you’ve just paid for. I’ve scanned it for your delight, to give you an idea of how to use them if my description confuse you. The splatter effect is splashed on either by flicking a stiff brush with your thumb, or by using the air from your airbrush to liberate tiny specks from any kind of brush, giving you better control over the location of the landing zone. The pigments, one labelled Asphalt Road Dirt, the other City Dirt are a grey brown and light greyish shade respectively. They can be used dry to flick or dab onto the wet splashes or other parts of the vehicle, or wetted with white spirit and used to create larger clumps or splodges around wheel-arches or side skirts. If you’re doing a vehicle with an accumulation of mud in the arches, this is the ideal method, adding little and often, with snow coloured pigments from your own stock added along the way if it suits your needs. Conclusion A handy one-box solution that doesn’t leave you clueless how to use it, and with a generous helping of each component in the large screw-top pots. Highly recommended.

  4. Hi While renewing all of the pictures of the builds that I have done because of this Photobucket saga, I came across a few pictures of the build in progress for this kit. They show some of the details that are not visible when the kit was finished. The link to the finished build can be found in the RFI section or by clicking HERE Thanks for viewing.
