  1. Hi, This is a 1:35 model I finished this year. This is Tamiya kit no. 35149. I made it as moving model, like all the models in my collection btw. Additional parts are the Friulmodel tracks and handmade towing cables.
  2. So, a King Tiger appeared down the chimney for Christmas It has been suggested that I should keep it for the Tiger Tank STGB in May. However, as this is currently my only kit, I couldn't wait that long, so here it comes (maybe I'll just get another Tiger for May ) I've read and watched loads about potential suspension problems, so it was with some trepidation that I cracked open the box yesterday. First impressions: the dark red plastic is slightly strange to start with. However, detail is very good. There's a nice little bit of PE for engine grills, and they've helped out with the tracks by including some 'ready-build' straight sections. No metal barrel for me However, really looking forward to it. Also, coming straight from a Panzer IV build, this feels huge Here goes... Straight into the chassis and wheels. The wheels come with poly-bushes which enable them to be taken on and off the chassis, which is really useful. Just sprue-attachment cleanup really. Despite the horror stories, the suspension sat really well, and the wheels are nice and flat on the surface. Maybe I just got a 'good kit'??? So I'm always learning. If you want to learn about the different Tiger II variants, then I can recommend this excellent video from the Tanks Museum: That's all for now... I'm not a quick worker, but will keep you all posted

    Sd.Kfz. 165 Hummel

    A long time back, my father and I used to play board games by, amoung others, Avalon Hill. One of Avalon Hill's games was PanzerBlitz, which represented combat units at squad or company level. Amoung the most effective weapons, and my favourite, was the German Hummel, self propelled artillery - very effective at long range. I have wanted to build a model of one ever since, and now, maybe, I have a chance. Here it is ... ... one of Dragon's Hummels, an early version. Sprue shot ... There is a review and critique of the kit on the PMMS site, http://www.perthmilitarymodelling.com/reviews/vehicles/dragon/dr6204.htm with detailed sprue shots. I think I'll start with the tracks, which should require less thought than the rest of the kit ...

    Panzer IV Ausf.K "What-if"

    I'm finished with moving into my new modelling room, so I can now finally join in with this GB! My project for this group build will be using an old Dragon Kugelblitz kit from 1999. The Kugelblitz turret from this kit however has been earmarked for another build (Flakpanzer E-25) so I'll be using the leftover hull along with new 3D printed parts to make a Panzer IV Ausf.K. In 1943 during the development of the Ausf.H Krupp proposed changing the Panzer IV's hull to a new sloped armour layout. This change would have required production to stop while factories re-tooled for the new design, this came at a time when production of the Panzer IV had been ordered to increase though so the new design was cancelled & the Ausf.H instead only received minor upgrades. Krupp also proposed a new simplified turret design for the Panzer IV in 1944 that would have greatly decreased the the time & resources needed for production while increasing protection. Production of the Panzer IV was ordered to be stopped though, with only the Jagdpanzer IV continuing so development of this new turret was cancelled. The combination of Krupp's Ausf.H sloped hull & simplified turret is what is known as the Ausf.K, which is an unofficial "what-if" name used to help differentiate this design from the other Panzer IV variants. Before I start work on the kit I first have to design the the new parts for the conversion & 3D print them, so it might be a few days before the next update.
  5. Well, with virtually no modelling throughout the summer, it's finally back to the bench. I suffer abrupt changes of modelling polarity and feel the need to put aside my 1/72 boat projects for the time being, to do some more armour. One of my favourite tanks is The Brit Centurion and it's hard not to be mesmerized by what the IDF have done to modernise and adapt their venerable Shot Cals. (I saw Michael Mass has written that it should be Cal not Kal?) The Nagmachon was a project using old Centurion hulls to construct APCs. This will the early version without the later "Doghouse" that was built to give the crew further protection. They have an almost sci-fi appearance in their strangeness. The web is not exactly awash with pictures - here's the early version on the right.. Reference will be the excellent Desert Eagle publishing... I'm told copying pictures from these volumes is particularly frowned upon. However, they are particularly excellent and modeller-centric. Kit versions appear from Hobby Boss and Tiger Model (costing nearly twice as much) I'll be using the Hobby Boss version The KMT mine adapter will be fitted and I'm waiting for DEF Model to produce their promised mine roller kit. The old Academy version that came with a Merkava 2 or M60 is sadly no longer available. Neither the Hobby Boss or Tiger Model versions supply the Shackles that are used with chain to help attach the side skirt armour. Thanks to Alan Brown from Leicester Modellers to tipping me off about shackles available on Shapeways that fit the bill perfectly - sadly the first lot bought were too small Shapeways - Bolted shackles There's no chain supplied with this kit so courtesy of Accurate Armour And there are the too small shackles on the box I've never built a Hobby Boss kit before - though instructions and presentation are as per Trumpeter - simple line drawings With Colour profiles and paint callouts citing Mr Hobby, Vallejo, Model Master, Tamyia and Humbrol Mindful of the "difficulty" with the colour Sinai Gray, I'm going to trial the new AK lacquers (with some hopefully wending their way) which promises authentic accuracy. We shall see. Construction begins with the hull tub and bogie assemblies. Dry fitting hints at what's to come.. Thanks for looking Rob
  6. This is an older figure pulled from my stash and painted last weekend. Uncharacteristically for Hornet this one had quite a bit of pitting in the the metal casting (particularly over the trousers) but that didn't take long to address and it didn't detract from the appeal or the quality of the bare figure. I replaced the kit's metal PPSh with a plastic one from Miniart as the latter was rather more crisply defined - even if it is about 1mm longer overall. The sling is made from paper, and getting it made and attached to appear as though it is bearing the weight of the gun pushed me to my limit - I feel I've got better things to be bothering with at this stage in my life! Everything painted with Vallejo acrylics. For the life of me I still can't take photographs that please me.....

    Zvezda 1/35 Panzer IV Ausf E

    Well before I start getting nasty notices from Six I thought that I had better mark my place with my entry for this GB for which I will be building Zvezda's relatively new 1/35 Ausf E. Now I am not an avid armour builder so you will have to forgive me any newbie errors I make and also any stupid questions that I might ask, I will also be building her OOTB complete with any errors that the kit might have, no doubt there are some, with a view to possibly finishing it as a tank operated by the Afrika Korps or DAK as they are often referred. So without further ado here are the usual box and contents shots; Quite nice box art and underneath is a very sturdy cardboard box stuffed full of parts. Lots of bits in these target boxes aren't there! Thankfully for a novice like me there are link and length tracks rather than individual links. Anyway don't get your hopes up for a record breaking build as I have the small matter of a B-17 to get finished first. Anyway thanks for looking in and any comments and tips are gratefully received. Craig.
  8. Hi All, Here's the Tiger Models late Nagmachon. Having built the Hobby Boss one earlier, this is definitely the better kit especially in terms of the "Droid", glass, bar armour and headlights. Goes together very well and Instructions look just like Tamiya's - are they related companies? Painted with AK Sinai Gray then covered in dust as all of the ones in service seem to be. Love the look of this AFV - I think you'd feel safer in one of these than any lighter wheeled vehicle. Usual C&C welcome Cheers David
  9. Here is a Chieftain MK 5 in NATO colors. Some dusty but not really dirty. Then my Chieftain collection. A MK 5 in NATO scheme and a MK 11 and a MK 10 both in the BATUS schemes. That's about enough of these. The old Chieftains look like a real tank, just a real "tankish" look to them.

    Sturmgeschutz IV

    Hi Guys, Here are some pictures of the model I want to build for this GB. I don't know if I will finish it, but I will try. I am having lost my model mojo for a few months now and hope to get it back with this build. It is a old Tamiya kit, with the only a extra metal gun barrel and maybe some rubber track from a different kit. the box front the content and the metal barrel. There should also be some zimmerit on the model, but haven't decided if I will do that. Cheers,
  11. Hey guys, i would like to show you my last finished kit. It is the very first armour kit since i came back to the modelling 2 years ago (hell the time flies fast!). One would say it does not matter, planes or tanks.. and bigger scale should be easier to make, right? Well, from my view, there are differences and bigger scales does not mean it ll be easier to make details.. Anyway, the build was a lot of fun to me, so i think soon i ll have a look on the 1/72 tanks in my stash The Tiger II was built for my friend to celebrate his fresh new engineering degree - ordered by his wife to surprise him, so i hope he ll be surprised in good You can find the WIP thread h with aftermarket parts used ere http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/234990910-tiger-ii-april-1945-weathering-stage-dragon-135/, but because i had only month for the build (working on it on the few free days during the month), i did not have time to take shots of every little progress there Anyway, part of the gift was some wooden base (supplied by my friend´s wife) - and it was quite huge.. So i decided to build two little grass "isles" on it, with some ammo boxes and other stuff, to fill the empty areas. Now to the tank itself At the beginning we said there wont be any interior (because of the limited time), so everything is closed. Also i did show some camo schemes to my friend´s wife and she chosed the late war scheme as the nicest to her. I did some researching around and like 30 King Tigers were finished in this scheme - sadly i did not find any photo of any of these, so the camouflage is kind of what-if (used Rom1´s E-75 as an inspiration, thanks! ). Everything of the weathering stage (or well, the very most of it) was new to me and i was also experimenting a bit with artistic stuff.. Well, here is the result more to come..
  12. Hi all Sirs, here my latest cat in progress. An old 1/35 Dragon reference built from the box, so let's go straight to painting. At first, a dark priming to all inner wheels side and hull spots
  13. It's been almost 2 months without any plastic cut so here is a little project for Christmas until that 1/16 Panther shows. Wasn't going to do any more 1/35 scale but it's been pretty boring. This is a decent kit and even though it has rubber band tracks which I hate they are actually very very good tracks so they will get used. So far the suspension has been a bit tedious but it's done and that's it for now with wheels coming up.

    Takom Chieftain MK 5

    Chieftain #3, one can never have too many as I already have a MK 10 and a MK 11 and now the cousin a MK 5. It's all ready for some paint but so is the Meng Merkava MK IV and the Takom Panther A so a painting session is on the horizon. Both of my other Chieftains are in the BATUS scheme so this one will probably end up as green with black for something different.
  15. This is a Merkava MK 1 Hybrid from Jan 2018 with some Tamiya Panel Line Accent added and some subtle dirt Sort of breaks up the monotone, Not too dirty or beat up but has seen some service.
  16. Hey everybody!! The kit (dragon)has too few details and the tank is big, so I created this winter paint(I saw enough red-brown German tanks). I also made a canvas on the side of turret. I am very happy to complete this unique E100. Merry Christmas!!!!!!!!!

    1/35 Tamiya Jagdpanzer IV/70 Lang

    Greetings! Here is my entry to the GB - Tamiya's recent new tool of the Jagdpazer IV/70. It looks to a be a straightforward build and does not appear to require that cement paste render seen on a lot of German AFV's. This will be a place holder at present as i am still finishing off a couple of builds for the Pacific GB. I plan to do the version with the "ambush" camo as in the last picture. Thanks for looking, Cheers Greg

    Wirbelwind (the big one)

    Time to join the big boys. To complement my 1/72 Wirbelwind I am also going to try to build the Tamiya 1/35 Wirbelwind. It’s an old kit but a goodie I understand. It will be interesting to see how this builds alongside Nigel’s Dragon kit and Plasto’s Christmas surprise. The kit... The sprues... And the extras... Cheers for looking. Dave
  19. Started this back in June and finally got around to more or less finishing.

    1/35 Nashorn

    So I have decided to pull out Tamiya's Nashorn out of my stash for the first time since Christmas of last year... how appropriate. But I have decided to order some PE for it (all PE available), along with a metal barrel and tracks. I have decided to do a diorama for this model, and I was looking at some German soldiers that will match the Battle of Kursk scene I'm thinking about doing. So this will be a project that'll last my entire Christmas break. Pictures will be uploaded when I receive the aftermarket parts and figures. Along with some ideas for the dio. I plan on making. Marry Christmas, Mark

    1/35 aftermarket 7.62 gpmg

    I've got two Takom 1/35 FV432's to build, and looking at the gpmg's in the kit I think a little a/m- a metal barrel, some etch perhaps - might improve it. Or even a resin job. I've done a search in Hannants as a start, with negative results. Probably poor search terms, but I have tried a fair few options. Seeking advice from the (shameless flattery!) Excellent AFV modellers on B/M as to is such a/m exists, and who makes it.
  23. BMW R12, Zvezda kit 1/35, straight out of the box, the only exception spokes of the wheels from steel wire 0,18 mm. And if honestly the build was just for fun Thanks for looking.

    M4A1 Sherman

    Eduard's boxing of the Lovely Tasca / Asuka Sherman. When it came out it was by far and away the cheapest way to get a Tasca Sherman, so I got a couple Started by making up the lower hull, and adding some Mr Surfacer 1000 to add more cast texture as it's a bit soft While I was at it, added the texture to the turret as well Peter
  25. I have in my stash the Thunder Model Scammall Pioneer tractor and trailer, 1/35 scale. My current load options in my stash are: Comet cruiser tank and Firefly Ic tank. Are either of these suitable load options for the Scammall?
