  1. Started a new Israeli Merkava Mk 3D. The Merkava MK IV I wanted with the Trophy Active system isn't available locally yet but this is also a nice model. Got some wheels, idlers and sprockets done so far.
  2. 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....
  3. Here is my IDF collection. Meng late Achzarit, Academy Gal Batash, Takom MK1 Hybrid Merkava and Takom Tiran 4. All used but pretty clean, ready for a parade.

    Tamiya Tyrannosaurus Rex

    Small blitz on Tamiya’s T-Rex I believe excerable is the best word to describe this kit At least it was cheap
  5. My first T-54, a captured unit re-purposed as a Tiran 4 in Israeli service. New bigger gun, 50 cal and 30 cal mgs and lots of add on storage.
  6. Hello all, Here is my recently finished diorama based around the 1/35 Meng Pickup truck. Entitled 'Hunting' the scene depicts an American Tier 1 Special Missions Unit (Army Delta Force or Navy DEVGRU) in a sniping/observation position, somewhere in Afghanistan in early 2002. I added some extra resin storage to the truck, along with some Legend AT4 launchers, a ProArt tac sat antennae, a radio in the cab (can barely see it) and some other small bits and pieces. The sniper team are Legend figures, the squatting figure is an unknown brand of ebay, the .50cal rifle is from the Meng kit and the M4s/MK11 are from Trumpeter. The build thread is here Thanks for looking. Dave
  7. Decided that I'd make another Pan-Pan, since I liked my last one so much. Won't be doing the interior on this one like my last, although I might be working on the engine compartment.

    Pzr IV/70(A) Sd.Kfz.162/1

    Started today, the old Tristar kit in the Hobbyboss box Work starts with the two sets of road wheels - steel rimmed for the front and rubber rimmed for the rear. I've left off the rubber rims at the moment - they can go on after paint Then on with the bogeys Then finally for the day, the drive sprockets This is a typical Tristar kit, a lot like Bronco - lots of detail, and tiny pieces but everything so far fit's really well. Peter
  9. Lanchester 4x2 Armoured Car Copper State Model 1/35 This is CSM's new WWI era Lanchester armoured car. It's quite a simple little kit compared to some of the armour mega-kits that come from a lot of manufacturers these days. Despite the simplicity though, it really is a joy to put together. The fit is just about perfect, and the whole thing was built up and ready for paint in only 4 days. There's some really nice example of moulding to, like the front fenders which are thin enough to almost pass for being photo etched, and the wheel spokes which are remarkably thin for an injection moulded part. There are a couple of errors in the kit. The little bump on top of the turret is a socket for a flag, and it should be closer to the turret roof hatch rather than at the front edge. Also the insides of the rear wheel arches should be panelled off, instead of being open as they are here. Neither of them are big deals though and are pretty easy to fix. CSM have a photo etch set in the works for this kit, although to be honest, I don't think it's really necessary. They do have some nice figures though which should work well for a diorama. This one's painted with Gunze RLM 65 and RLM 76 in a rough representation of Admiralty light grey Thanks for looking Andy
  10. This is IBG's new Scammell Pioneer, the first of three versions they're bringing out, with the artillery tractor and transporter to follow. For the most part, it's an excellent kit, with great fit and nice detailing. There are a few shortcomings with it though, the biggest of which is the incorrect windscreen shape. On top of that, there are a few simplifications and missing details, some of which I added, such as the linkages for the chassis mounted winch. The access ladder was scratch built, as IBG don't provide one in the kit, and a lot of the brackets and fixtures on the rear where enhanced or replaced as necessary. The fuel tank had the moulded-on boarding steps removed, and replaced with something more in-scale. For the crane rigging, IBG only provide a length of thread, so some Eureka copper cable was used for the two winches, and a detail set from KFS Models was used for the pulleys and shackles on the back. Despite all that, it was a great kit to work on, and the scratch building fell into the fun category, rather than the tedious one. As a kit though, it looks like it's going to be out-classed by the Thunder Models alternative, but it'll still be worth picking up, as long as it's priced below the Thunder one. This one's finished as a Russian lend-lease example, and painted in SCC2, rather than the 4BO indicated in the instructions. Thanks for looking Andy

    Takom IDF Tiran 4

    Started a new one this morning, Takom's Tiran 4 but in IDF colors.
  12. This came in the post today, after I paid a £25 import VAT to Parcelforce to receive it. I'd been waiting for these kits to come back into stock on HobbyLinkJapan (I also got another larger kit). Overall, I'm impressed. Some parts of the instructions will be translated using Google Translate, but generally these Bandai kits are a pleasure to build, so I might not even need the extra information. A nice instruction book, with drawings. A very comprehensive painting guide. In my opinion, a good instruction booklet can really make a kit. I miss the older Tamiya-style instructions, where they'd have drawings of uniforms, and diagrams of the vehicle. The car parts... ...and a very blurry photo of the figures. Included is a digital camouflage decal, which can be cut on provided templates and used on the uniform of one of the soldiers. As with most Bandai kits, there are multiple plastic colours on the sprue. I will of course be painting them. The faces are nicely moulded, and should paint up well. The equipment sprue impressed me. I love the Wehrmacht style. Also, all of the weapons have slide-moulded barrels, even the pistols. Considering some modern kits don't even do this, this is pretty good. here is the other kit- I couldn't be bothered to take photos of the sprues, because the box is seriously packed with them. This kit is similarly high-quality, and the vehicle itself is huge. I'm excited to get started on these kits. I'll start with the smaller one, though.
  13. Decent little kit that should be ready to paint soon- I need to paint and assemble some sub assemblies before I can get on with making the two crew figures.
  14. With work on My two current builds stalled due to lack of funds (two birthdays and a trip to Stalag Luft 3 and Colditz this month!) I thought I would complicate life even more by re energising my modeling Mojo! So, after trawling the interweb for inspiration and rooting through my stash I dragged these two out! Both kits are getting on a bit, although the LAV 25 is a reboxed anniversary reissue. I do like USMC armour, so it didnt take long for the juices to start flowing, the basic kits are ok for accuracy given their age, so which to build? I know........ coin flip! Well there`s the answer........................BOTH! So the LAV 25, three sprues in sand coloured plastic, an aftermarket 25mm barrel and two lots of photo etch, one specific to the Italeri TUA and one for the Trumpeter LAV 25, I dimly recall being unable to find a specific set for the Italeri LAV 25 so when I came across the Trumpy set thought I would give it a punt and use that for the turret and the TUA set for the hull! l The LAV TUA has two common sprues as per the 25 and the TOW turret parts are on a third, and there's also a photoetch for the specific kit.so all good for a straightforward more or less OTB build then! So the plan is....................Two LAV`s a 25 and a TUA, I`ll go with early vehicles, (the kits have the early pattern tyres and these two have been in the stash for a while, so the cost of replacing the wheels with later pattern resin wheels would be excessive and counter to the Mojonation restoration of this build) Marine Corps MERDC camouflage, limited stowage, crewed up and restrained weathering, might even build a base for em, a bit of beach or something eh?.................Well, that's the plan, that way I can avoid the characteristic tail down attitude of the heavily loaded Gulf War and Afghan vehicles, so no drastic chopping of the suspension or weighting the wheels and save a bundle on resin aftermarket stowage! Oh, and I can make the front wheels steer too! Already figured that one out! Ta for lookin` no "G" Granto
  15. I build aircraft...well mostly...by which I mean I have built 3 armoured vehicles in about 30 years...however inspired by various colleagues on this forum I have decided to have another go for this GB. I was not sure if I was up to tracks so have picked up this kit of the Sd.Kfz.222 armoured car. I have always liked the look of these vehicles and have always fancied building something from the Afrika Korps. In a fit of enthusiasm I thought well maybe I could do a diorama...and bought this. I rather liked the chap on the donkey. I did look for some goats in 1/35 but with little success. I also picked up these which might be useful...or not. All comments very welcome especially if you can stop be making a complete hash of this. Cheers Dave
  16. Going to call this one done. A simple and quite quick build, kit bashing a couple of kits into one. There is a WIP for anyone who cares to look. There's mainly Tamiya and some Italeri but there is some Accurate Armour the commander is Meng and other bits out of the spares box. As ever she's brush painted using Humbrol enamels and finished with Winsor & Newton Galeria matt varnish. Just a little dirt on this one. So I started off with this; M113 ADV - 1 by phil da greek, on Flickr And ended up as this. Seen later in her days in a modified NATO camouflage as part of the OPFOR for various training exercises in the US. M113 ADV - 16 by phil da greek, on Flickr M113 ADV - 17 by phil da greek, on Flickr M113 ADV -18 by phil da greek, on Flickr M113 ADV - 19 by phil da greek, on Flickr M113 ADV -20 by phil da greek, on Flickr M113 ADV - 21 by phil da greek, on Flickr M113 ADV - 22 by phil da greek, on Flickr M113 ADV - 23 by phil da greek, on Flickr Thanks for looking in. Here's hoping for some sun over the Bank Holiday.

    Bradley M2A3

    Another Bradley, but not in the same league as Gremlin's recent effort. I wasn't sure whether I'd bother putting this up and considered waiting until I'd finished and then gently prod it round the door with a long stick and leave quietly hoping that nobody would notice. Before this I'd just finished the Meng Abrams which, in my opinion, is a bit of a dog. I wasn't sure if this was going to be the same in which case I'd probably not bother and kick it into the stash somewhere but I thought it would be fair to give Meng a second chance. I'm happy to report that apart from a couple of minor niggles its going together rather well with the parts fitting like they belong to the same kit. Here's the start. There's an M113 from Tamiya on the bench as well as the Bradley hull on its back waving its legs in the air. The Tamiya kit was an old moulding with a couple of extra sprue thrown in which are basically bergens, ammo and jerry cans and a dog to hang around the external parts of the vehicle. Although the Bradley has an interior I'm not sure how much will be visible once I'm finished. Thought I'd start on the wheely bits first as well as the track assembly. The wheels have separate tyres which I thought was to make painting easier (see later). Being Meng the fit between the road wheel and tyre is so tight that no adhesive was necessary. They're on for good! I've seen various negative comments about the tracks but with me being cheap I thought I'd give them a go. I can always bin them later if it goes wrong and order up some of the ones that Gremlin used in his build. Thankfully there are enough links in the bag to compensate for the ones that don't fit or are too loose. I might need to glue a few links before this is over just for some additional strength. Time to get them into paint along with the rubbers from the M113. As most of the M113 track is hidden under the side skirts the rubbers will be adequate enough. My choice of track may yet be my undoing. Here's the start to the hull interior. Time to add some grease an overall wear and tear before I go any further. Next steps is the engine, oh, one has just been delivered. Of course it wouldn't be one of my models if I hadn't screwed up somewhere. Thought I'd completed the wheel assemblies but that wasn't the case. At the bottom of the box was a piece of brass that the helpful people at Meng thoughtfully included for use as a mask for defining the extent of the rubber. Pity they didn't mention this in the instructions which were rather unclear about the extend of the rubber. I did have my reservations when I was putting them together. Oh well back to wheel painting. I've now discovered that there is a considerable warp on the lower half of the hull. With the back plate and some tensioning I should be able to fix it. I ran into a similar problem with the Meng Cougar when closing it up. This time I'll make sure the hull fits together before fitting the interior. That way I should be able to use the necessary clamps without damaging parts. I'd say with Meng it pays to build sub assemblies, continually checking for fit, before discovering that that serious fettling is required once everything has been glued down.
  18. Tamiya's lovely Valentine with some Value Gear stowage plus some from the spares box. The figure is Mini Art with a Hornet head as I made a bit of a town halls of the kit figures. My only gripe is with the choice of schemes, one rather uninspiring British scheme & two Russian, it should be the other way round. I weathered it with oils & Mig pigments which turned the vehicle darker after I sprayed the tank with Winsor & Newton fixative - D'oh!! The Tamiya Archer beckons. Any comments or criticisms welcome as always. Pete Thanks for looking.

    Schnellboot S38

    Well I didn't see this coming Italeri Will be launching the S 38 early Schnellboot in December http://italeri.com/news_scheda.asp?idNews=738 Kev
  20. Completed this model a couple of weeks ago, just got round to finishing the simple base and getting some photos done; Overall Views A few closer shots

This kit is similarly high-quality, and the vehicle itself is huge. I'm excited to get started on these kits. I'll start with the smaller one, though.
  22. My first Kinetic kit. Doesn't look too bad compared to the Meng M3A3. Going to try it without all of all of the reactive armor add-ons. The running gear is really hidden with the upper hull sitting in place. Link and length tracks which is much better than Meng's individual links on their Bradleys.
  23. As I've slowed down a bit on my Panzer II due to the fiddly etch, I decided to start another project. Couldn't resist putting together the basic chassis and gun. First order of business I think is the PAK, so I've been cleaning up the kit parts and adding the photo-etch parts. I'll be using this picture as a reference, as the Eduard instructions aren't clear where everything goes. (Though I hope mine won't look as ropey as this does in places) Luckily, there are loads of images of this gun online, so I have an idea of where things go.
  24. My next major armour project will be this, an Italeri RSO with PAK-40, a strange little German vehicle designed to fill the role of a mobile anti-tank gun. I bought this packaged with the Eduard etch (an ebay bargain), which so far has been a nice test for my new bending tool. Here's some progress pics, after a few night's work. I enjoyed upgrading the driver's compartment, the etch makes a difference in this case. While the rest of this kit is decent, the tracks are what I would call garbage- stiff, thick, and seemingly too big for the model. I'll try to work out a solution, but I may have to find aftermarket tracks- if anyone has any of these to hand, or knows of some affordable ones, please tell me! Finally, a Zvezda Volkssturm man. The figure was fine to assemble, and nicely moulded for an inexpensive plastic figure, apart from one thing. The arm holding the gun does not fit at all, the provided Kar-98k being useless in this regard (but a nicely well-moulded rifle nonetheless), so I had to replace it. Luckily, I remembered from prior studies that Volkssturm units were commonly armed with Italian rifles, so a spare Italian M91 Carbine was chosen, and fitted fairly well into the hands. The way he is holding it isn't perfect, but a mostly untrained man would probably not have had the best grasp of how to use his rifle, so that's my excuse.
  25. Picked one of these up on ebay for more that what I'd want to pay. Sadly, Kettenkrad kits seem to be few and far between and it was a bit of a struggle to get one. This should be a nice little project anyway. Exams are coming up, so larger projects that occupy undue desk space may not have much progress on them. You don't get either of the figures shown on the box art, but I was aware of this, and may use the later war German driver figure included. Started by constructing some of the vehicle's internals. So far, it's a typical Dragon kit, with a bit of flashing and some mould seams to clean up.
