    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
  2. Thought I'd make a post for these WIP I've been working on the past few months. The standard of photography isn't great, and I'm still working out my own ideal method of figure painting. German captain. The Iron Cross and eagle on his breast are Tamiya decals. German assault engineer. German NCO. German Private. Panzergrenadier unit, led by a captain on the left, followed by a three-man LMG team. Of course, none of these are quite finished yet, and the photo quality from my current phone is fairly awful, but any tips and pointers would be appreciated.
  3. 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
  4. 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.
  5. Here are a bunch of photos of the dioarama build I have described in the WIP section: https://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/235040769-a-diorama-with-a-nostalgic-touch/ The purpose of the dioarama was to build a scene that showed some common street elements as I remember them fram my childhood and youth in a suburb to Stockholm, Sweden during the 1950s and 1960s: - a telephone booth - an electrical box - a lamp post - a concrete tree grate - cut stone, Belgian block style - a storm drain Everything, except the young lady in the telephone booth, is scratch built or 3D-modelled/printed especially for this diorama. Any comments and suggestions for improvements, to be applied to future builds, are welcome. Thanks for watching. Lennart
  6. 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.
  7. Hi Folks This is the ancient (1977 pop) Tamiya Churchill. Now I'm no armour expert by any stretch of the imagination, but despite its age this still looks pretty accurate compared to the photos I've seen. Probably let down a bit by the bent antennae, I might have to change those. Regards J A
  8. 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.
  9. 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
  10. LostCosmonauts

    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
  11. 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
  12. This was a quick build, today I'm going to prime it, and tomorrow put down some base colours, hopefully.
  13. So it's back to the desert for me with a simple little diorama to show off the Merit 1/35th M19 Diamond T Tank Transporter. The tank for transport is Monty's M3 Grant from the Tamiya 1/35 kit. As it's dificult to see the driver in the cab, i'm adding a local inhabitant utilising the transport of the time! So the basic layout is: With the componants as mentioned above!
  14. Another project that languished for a bit. I mostly enjoyed the build, although the ICM T-34 had some fit issues, and the tracks don't want to take paint, which peels off easily. As a result, I was unable to weather the wheels and tracks as much as I wanted to.
  15. Somewhere in Europe… THE BRITISH ARMY 1976 - 2000. © Crown copyright. IWM (CT 681)IWM Non Commercial Licence Fashionably late to the party, I have acquired a Takom FV432 2/1 and hope to make a decent fist of it, reports I’ve read suggest it’s a nice kit to work with. I’ve added a Reveleri Series III Landrover to the stash as well, largely for sentimental reasons as my favourite vehicle I’ve driven to date, is the 1983 Series III 88" Landie that my family owned briefly in the early ‘90s. BRITISH ARMED FORCES IN GERMANY 1976 - 2000. © Crown copyright. IWM (CT 1216)IWM Non Commercial Licence The box art features a spectacularly lurid shade of IRR green which I will not be seeking to replicate on my model! Untitled by jongwinnett, on Flickr
  16. Here is Meng's latest Merkava. The Mark IV M with the Trophy Active Protection System.
  17. This is an older project which had languished for a couple of years, before I recently decided to knuckle down and get it finished.
  18. Hi, Takom panther project start 2 months ago, here is progress till now. Almost ready for painting.
  19. Started another Merkava today, Meng's Merkava 4M. Pretty detailed but the tracks are a bear, lots of flash and probably won't end up as working tracks when finally assembled. The suspension is supposedly fully working but who cares?
  20. BlackMax12

    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.
  21. I purchased this kit due to a lack of interest in my other projects. I'll be using an Eduard photo-etch set, and a spare Bronco sprue of German equipment in order to further detail the kit. It's all for fun- I deliberately got the older Tamiya kit with etch on Ebay rather than a Dragon kit, because I enjoyed upgrading the 232 I worked on a couple of months ago. I've made a bit of progress so far, the photo-etch on the rifle rack needs a bit of work, but I enjoyed working with it and am accepting the fun challenge. I won't include it all simply because I don't have a tool to bend some of the smaller parts, but I'm going to make as much as I can. A lot of the interior parts have been left off, since I'll be painting them separately. This Tamiya kit from 1979 came with Rommel and his crew, the other figures aren't worth painting imo, but I may paint the general for fun. Painting the leather coat will be the challenge here. I love how this beast looks. I'm not sure how well these decals will work, honestly. It shouldn't be a massive issue if they don't, as I have plenty of spare German decals at this point, including some little etch masks for unit markings spare from the 232. Hopefully I'll be pleasantly surprised, though, and anyway, I plan on making a European version from a unit of my choice, with relatively few markings. The excellent spare Bronco sprue- I'm trying to only replace the Tamiya parts when absolutely necessary, so I have these for a future project.
  22. Almost done with this one, just needs a bit more weathering.
  23. One of my sons happened to run in to this one day. "What's going on here?" - he asked. I did not know. A tree walking its slug perhaps. Anyway, I though it would be a fun scene to model. So that is what I did, but I made it an autumn scene instead of early summer. - The "slug" itself is made of modeling clay. - The tree is a wire armature tree with leafs from "Green Stuff". - Stones of various sizes and shapes are cut from cork. - The sign is made of styrene and brass tubing, with the actual signage printed on a standard ink jet printer. - The railing is made of brass tubing, with round sprinkles (yes the candy stuff you eat with ice cream!) for end knobs. - The iron tree grate and the storm drain are 3D prints from my own desgin. - Paints are mainly Vallejo.
  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.
