    Jagdtiger winter worn

    Well she's finally finished! I've really enjoyed this build. She's done in my customary heavy worn state. Build thread Thank you all so much for following the build

    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
  3. Hi All Here's the Trumpeter T62 in Iraqi service with ERA. Easy and pleasant kit to build and came with a metal barrel. Painted with a cocktail of Vallejo acrylics as they seem to have a million derivatives of sand colour. The figure (badly painted) came from the Tamiya T55 Enigma; he's looking out for A-10s. Any comments and criticisms welcome Cheers David
  4. 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.
  5. Hi Pals, al last I finished the model, and IHMO, I think it has been to my liking. I was pleasantly surprised, to see that even being such an ancient mold, still has a very good level of quality (I think even better than some models Tamiya of the time, and that time, were twice as expensive or so. ..) Once finished, you see a pretty powerful tank, a whole "Heavy metal", precursor of the "beasts" that would follow. On the other hand, the kit has a fairly simple assembly, no major problems to solve, if you want to OOB, although I have had two delicate enough, the hull and turret were twisted,and it was difficult to bring them together, and the tracks that are degraded by the passage of time and broke. Perhaps now come of better plastic quality. Here is a link to the WIP section, in case you want to see it. http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/235004000-the-olde-general-m47-patton-135-italeri-item265/ Thanks to all who have followed the assembly and finishing kit, and have supported and encouraged me with your suggestions and comments. Regards to all Pals And some shots on detail....

    Pzkw IV Ausf H

    Hi folks This was largely OOB although I had to replace the P/E schurzen with thin plasticard because I couldn't get the p/e handles to stick to the back of them! Regards J A.
  7. Hi everyone Reconnaissance. I used Soviet Armoures Aerosan NKL-26 from Trumpeter. The vignette is made for the customer. Cheers Martin
  8. My entry for this group build is ICM's Model T 1917 Ambulance with US Medical Personnel. A review of this kit can be found on this site here.
  9. Thought I’d have a go at an AFV as a change from ships. Academy 1/35 Warrior 2003 to go alongside an AFV Club Scimitar I built a few years ago. The Warrior will have Eduard PE along with Resin, PE and figures from Accurate Armour and a replacement Rarden barrel from Armour Scale as well as Fruil tracks The Scimitar will have replacement tracks from Fruil as the kit tracks were always a bit tight. Eventually they'll go on a simple desert base together for display. The builds nearly finished so the below are catch up pics. Various PE and resin The Scimitar Axles fitted, adjusted for vehicle ride height as mentioned in several blogs, and moulded on detail being removed Hull pretty finished from various angles Track test fitted - instructions say 90 links per side but 85 give about the right tension I think Turret coming together And the 2 side by side Cheers Nick
  10. Hitachi ZC50C-5 Vibratory Combined Roller Hasegawa 1/35 Just finished this one from Hasegawa's construction machinery series. I picked it up mainly as I thought it would be a fun build and would provide ample opportunity for weathering, which proved to be correct on both counts. It was built straight from the box as there's nothing really that needs adding. The level of detail and parts fit are just about perfect. It's also pretty cheap too, if ordered direct from Japan. There are several other vehicles in the range (see @Kallisti 's excellent Zaxis excavator build), so I'll probably be doing more of these in the future. Thanks for looking Andy
  11. This is a 1/35 model made by me last year. This is an Academy KIT no.13234. I made it as moving model, and made side hatch opening. All the parts are original from the kit. Thanks for the comments in advance. There is a link to video how can it ride
  12. Hi, This is a 1:35 model I finished this year. This is an AFV Club kit no. 35079. I made it as movable model. Additional parts are the Friulmodel tracks only.
  13. Hi, This is the 1:35 model I finished this year. This is an Academy kit no. 1348. I based on real one S13 unit which photo I added as first. Traditionally I made it as movable model. Additional parts are the Friulmodel tracks and small accessories. added bearings to the wheels
  14. Hi, This is a 1:35 model made by me this year. This is an Zvezda KIT no. 3524. I made it as moving model, like all the models in my collection btw. Additional parts are the Friulmodel tracks, handmade towing cables and small accessories. Constructive critique is welcome and some assembling photos

    MAS Boat

    Hi Folks, I hope you will forgive me but I'm one of many affected by the money grabbing !£$%&%%$£!$^&^% at PB. The MAS boat was my first project on Britmodeller and my first 'Plastic kit' in more years than I care to remember Being rather proud of my efforts I didn't want it to disappear so reposted using Postimage.org For those that missed it first time around the detailed interior For those interested the full build is here http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/234943576-another-mas-boat/ Unfortunately thanks to the %$^&*$£"!*+*&^$%£"! at photobucket the pics are no longer there but if you have any questions I still have the originals. I hope you enjoy them as much the second time around as I did Cheers Kev
  16. Hi, This is a 1:35 model I finished this year. This is Tamiya KIT no. 35065. I made it as movable model. Additional parts are the Friulmodel tracks, two PE fenders in front, handmade towing cables and small accessories. Constructive criticism is encouraged. I added new photos at bottom. AT NIGHT effect adding a bearing to the wheels while assembling (please correct my English)
  17. T-18 Light Tank Model 1927 Hobbyboss 1/35 It occurred to me recently that, what with all the Bandai Star Wars kits I've been doing recently, it's been a while since I've done an armour build on here. In fact I think the last one was the SS-23 and that was over a year ago. Time to change that then, and something Soviet and inter-war seems like a good idea. This is the new Hobbyboss T-18, which was the first all Russian tank, albeit heavily based on the French FT. It's a pretty standard Hobbyboss kit, moulded in sand coloured styrene with non-working indi links and a splash of PE. This isn't meant to be an in-box review (I'm sure Mike will be doing a proper one soon), but I'll post some sprue shots so you've got something to look at until I start cutting plastic. It all comes in a smallish box (12" x 8" if you're curious) with just four sprues for the tank and another 2 for the tracks. There's a separate lower hull, upper hull and turret, and a small sheet of PE. Sprue A's got some of the hull panels and the fenders, along with a few details including, annoyingly, a solid moulded headlight. It's not even moulded with a separate solid lens, which would at least have made swapping it for a clear replacement easier. Rather it's got the housing and lens as a single solid piece, so to replace it I'll have to drill it out. Not much on sprue B. Just the turret base and main hatch. It looks like the sprue's been designed to be modifiable to take alternate part for future releases. I seem to recall Hobbyboss having more than one version listed in the 2016 catalogue. Two sprue D's carrying duplicate parts for the running gear. Two sprue T's (T for track, get it... oh, ever mind). Indi links aren't everyone's cup of char, nor mine for that matter, but these don't look too bad. No separate guide horns or pads to add, and the runs are only 51 links long. The single piece lower hull... ... and the upper hull and turret. Last up there's the small PE sheet. Mainly the perforated shroud that will need bending to a curved profile. There's no jig provided for that, so I'll probably end up doing it round a knife handle or pencil. I don't like the look of the tiny individual bolt heads. Don't know where they go yet, but I'll more than likely substitute some Meng bolt heads for them. And that's it. No decals as there's only one scheme provided, and it carries no markings. From a cursory glance everything looks well moulded. I've not really started checking references regarding accuracy, but I'll get on to that in the build. It looks like a T-18 which is the main thing. And, just so you know, this is a tiny tank. How tiny... this tiny More soon Andy

    PzKpfw Maus II

    Most of my model making time lately has been occupied with designing 3D printed parts on my computer. I've missed the feel of plastic though so I dragged myself away from the PC and pulled a Takom Maus out of the stash. I plan to built it as a "what-if" production version with a Maus II turret. For that I'll be using Rhino's resin E-100 Krupp turret, along with a metal barrel from RB models, a voyager photo etch set & some other spare bits & pieces. The wheels & suspension are the first step of this kit & are made up from 288 parts in total! Most of which wont be visible once the model is finished. After working on it for over a week I've managed to get though this rather monotonous first step & I'm now looking forward to the more fun job of working on the hull & turret. The Maus's original turret's had a curved front which caused a shot-trap problem on the lower part. To counter this, armoured plates were added to the top of the engine deck to deflect shells away from the turret. For this model I'm using Krupp's Maus II turret though which doesn't have the same problem, So I've decided to not add the armoured plates & removed/filled the parts on the engine deck related to them. Without the armoured plates you can see more clearly though the grills & into the engine bay. So I had the spontaneous idea of 3D printing an engine to fill the void. It's extremely basic & missing a lot of detail but I didn't want to spend a lot of time & energy on something that will be barely visible when finished. I'm thinking about making the electric motors at the rear of the hull too though. For the next step I started drilling holes into the side of the hull to fit camouflage loops but my only 0.3mm drill-bit snapped I've ordered some more but they might take awhile to arrive. I'll make a start on the tracks next while I'm waiting for the new drills...
  19. Hi Pals, I finish working with this model. I have seen that it is a fairly simple kit, without major problems for assembly, with acceptable instructions. As a bonus, you can make several versions, just before the Paladin appears. Although this is an old kit, modestly I think that you could still get a good result, (I am reasonably happy with it), the only thing that gave me headaches were the main pieces of the turret and helmet, as they were crooked , I imagine that by the passage of time, and the worst, the tracks, which when they were already in place, split, where the hardest (in the curve), although I was able to rectify it quite well. I have chosen to make a version in Vietnam, because although the kit does not bring that option, I saw some photos (which I include) about this, I liked it a lot. Thanks to my box of spare parts, it was not a problem. I thank as always all fellows of the forum who have accompanied me in the assembly process and encouraged me with their comments to improve / continue. I include a link to the WIP section, in case someone is interested in seeing the post. I wish you all a Merry Christmas! (If possible ... lol) Some shots in detail.... And some pictures of real model in Vietman (ALL PHOTOS ARE ONLY FOR INFORMATIVE PURPOSES, AND ALL LEGAL RIGHTS BELONG TO YOUR LEGITIMATE OWNERS)
  20. This is Meng's new Jagdpanther, a very nice kit. I tried something new for me on this one. Sprayed the whole vehicle in red primer, applied some black pre-shading in places then a coat of hairspray. Painted it with the normal 3 color camo then took some water and a toothbrush to it to remove some paint and scuff it up. The results weren't quite as good as I expected as it's hard to get truly random chipping. The side plates are metal and some of the bare metal shows on the edges, a little too much brushing. I'll consider it finished though so here it is, an earlier G1 without zimmerit and with the one piece main gun.

    Meng Jagdpanther G1

    Picked this up yesterday, Meng's new Jagdpanther. Sure is small after I've just built four 1/16 monsters. Where's my optivisor?? This is a beautiful kit, just falls together with only one flaw so far, well maybe two, but that's ok the rest of the kit makes up for it. First off you would think Meng would realize there is a problem with the poly cap wheel mounting. The caps are too small and when I built the first Meng Panther A I broke half of the swing arms trying to get the road wheels on and off so that kit got scrapped. On the second Panther A I didn't use the poly caps in the road wheels at all. When the tracks are finished and the wheels are painted and all is installed a drop of glue on the axle holds the wheels just fine, they fit the axles without the caps. I've done the same on this kit and it works. Second is the individual link tracks, why indy links as the suspension is fixed and why put the sprue gates on the curved face of the links instead of somewhere practical like the ends? Fortunately there are only 3 gates to clean up on each link, the Panther A tracks had 7 per link and they got junked in favour of Friulmodel expensive metal links. The other thing is 2 teeth to glue on each link, that's something like 360 tiny bits to loose. I hate rubber band a la Tamiya but sometimes track building is just not fun. I have a Dragon late G2 with the composite gun so this will be an earlier G1 with the one piece gun and small mantlet surround. There is a metal barrel in the kit but it's only for the composite gun, too bad, Good news is the plastic barrels are one piece slide moulded so no seam to fill like most two piece barrels. They give you a complete detailed breech assembly but why bother as it's mostly hidden, I suppose the rear hatch on the fighting compartment lets a little light in but not much. Four different options to build so gets a little confusing which parts go with which as it's like a Dragon kit, lots of spare parts. I don't like any of the 4 camo patterns suggested so a little creative spraying is in order. Here it is as of tonight with one track in place, spent most of the day on one track. It's not joined at the bottom so comes right off for paint.
  22. Well, I've had this one for quite some time. I've posted pics of it before in the WIP page. Was originally supposed to be in a Japan setting, but over time I've modified some of my plans for things and the dioramas. The base for this one I was contemplating putting with an Italeri Commando Humvee, but when I noticed this M1151s scheme is darker than the M1083 truck I've been working on, I decided to swap them out and give this one its own little diorama. Its also my first time trying snow effects, specifically Tamiya's two snow effect texture paints, as well as the Krycell snow and ice wash. Was terrified I'd mess it up, but I'm happy with the outcome 1/35 Academy M1151 in Tamiya NATO scheme 1/35 Masterbox figures painted in ACU pattern (combo of a buff, dark grey and field grey/grey mix) 1/35 Accessories from Meng's Modern equipment set. Piece of extruded polystyrene foam Tamiya Snow Effect and Powdered Snow Effect Texture Paste Krycell Ice and Snow Wash Without further ado, here it be. Gaz
  23. Hi guys, not posted for a while, ive still been modelling but as i have recently had a baby, the man cave time has been cut considerably. I did however get this finished last year, and some of you may have seen it at telford in the competition area, but ive only just got round to taking pictures of it. A lot of time/effort/money went into it and took about 6 months from start to finish. Its 1.2 metres long by 30cm wide. Ive based it around a fictional story. Also to add that ive weathered the black hawk more since the pics were taken. Its set at some point in the last few years, the diorama depicts a blackhawk being recovered. It was hit by an RPG after carrying out an infiltrate mission in Afghanistan. The blast damaged the tail rotor, the pilot managed to land safely but it was in such a place that it couldnt be airlifted out. The tailfin/gearbox were beyond repair so was removed and dumped, and then the blackhawk was loaded onto the trailer. On the diorama it has just arrived at a US checkpoint on its way back to the airbase to be repaired, being escorted by an M1070 Light medium tactical vehicle (LMTV) Would be great to hear what you think.
  24. Hi, Takom panther project start 2 months ago, here is progress till now. Almost ready for painting.
  25. 06/24


    It's funny how some vehicles appeal to us and we want to make a model. I rarely, if ever, build German WW2 armour, but the Stupa, better, if somewhat erroneously, known as the Brummbar, has always been on my long term bucket list. The final catalyst was finding the zimmerit set for the recent Tamiya kit at Scale Scotland on Saturday, rapidly followed by finding the kit itself for a reasonable sum. As usual, research came first, and we are fortunate that there are some preserved examples of the late version as modelled by Tamiya: P1090957 by Ian Tong, on Flickr Brummbar by marcin oldak, on Flickr P1100612 by Ian Tong, on Flickr P1140668 by Ian Tong, on Flickr Brummbar/Sturmpanzer IV by tuscaloosa2009, on Flickr
