  1. I've been building up a small collection of Rubicon 1/56th scale models, mostly wheeled transport but including their impressive Crusader II/III. Seems like a good time to add something from the opposition: TigerTiger1 by John Walker, on Flickr I bought it especially for this GB, and also acquired the Panzer Commanders figure set. I'll be going for a Tunisian or Italian campaign vehicle. They are safely tucked away in my desk drawer at work, so I'm not tempted to jump the gun. Just hope I remember to bring them home tomorrow... John
  2. Having enjoyed building the Rubicon CMP truck I decided to try one of their armour kits and settled on the Crusader, which has long been one of my favourite tanks. You get a load of options in this kit, late MkI, MkII, MkIII, MkI/II close support or MkII/III anti-aircraft so there's a lot of parts in the box: Lovely well produced instruction leaflet: Finally there's a generic British armour decal sheet: What to build? Decisions, decisions... I might do some minor conversion work and try to build a first batch MkI with the open mantlet and Caunter camouflage. John
  3. I started this on March 28th and finished today with about 2 hours per day. The kit is a level 4 as per the box I purchased, but a level 2 on others. Both kits are the "Ranger" version, the same kit number and are identical in piece and piece count. This sort of thing is certainly not unheard of and is a good hint as to why you should research it. See the link above for more information on this kit. There was almost no injection feathering at all. The parts were strong and of good quality with striking detail.The directions were easy and clear as always with Revell. (to my knowledge) I painted the chrome rims as I am not a chrome lover and it never fit my color scheme. A couple of other things that stood out on this one; the rear license plate is too big, instead of cutting it down I threw it into my bonus-bag for future build. The other, was the body being a struggle to fit the frame. After some sharing expletives with the dog I finally got it done. Overall I liked this build and only wish it was a 1:1. The dog concurs.
