  1. This little Airfix T-34 is my seventh group build. I wasn't going to enter but my nephew (7) is getting into modelling and I've been helping him build a 1/76 Panther so I grabbed this off eBay to build alongside. My last (and only other) tank was a childhood Tamiya Walker Bulldog. This weekend saw us get a move on and quickly complete most of the build minus tracks. Painting and finish this week all going well.
  2. This has been ticking along in the background for a little while and is now done. Here is my spin on the Churchill IV(?) A.V.R.E tank in 1/76 using the venerable Matchbox kit and built OOB with some little enhancements. With kit of this vintage, their was always going to be some issues of fit and detail which were soon overcome. The only enhancement I done was to replace the handles on the rear deck but I'm sure their can be other refinements like towing cables, tools that can be done...on the next one maybe. Painted with AK Interactive paint. Kit decals held out w
  3. Hi All, Gearing up for the next build as current builds are waiting for the paint shop, tracks or bases. Next is this Bedford MK Tactical Aircraft Refueller in 1/76 by JB Models. Picked this kit up at a pre-lockdown model show, can you remember them, for £4. Boxart Sprue 1 Sprue 2 Sprue 3 Instructions Had a heart stop moment when a major part was missing when I emptied the box.. ...this was in a clear bag and it was trapped in the box and I couldn't see it...until I put my glasses on and looked inside the
  4. Hi All, as my current build of the Marmon-Herrington Armoured Car goes home to wait for painting, it's time to start another lunchtime. This time it's a 1/76 Vickers VI A/B/C Light Tank by JB Models, since released by Airfix. Because I want to build all the variants, I'll start this build as the 'A' version. Box art. Sprues. Instructions with understandable version differences The hull plastic parts are snipped off and cleaned up. The plastic is quite soft, so care needs to be taken with any clean-up procedure. B
  5. Morning people. With the Challenger and Humber at home awaiting painting and accessories, I need another build for the lunchtimes while at work. I purchased this and loads of other afv's from a club member who wants to see this Matador built, so here goes. Nice sturdy box and a pic of what it should look like. What the heck am I supposed to do with this? It's got an inventory list if you know what things are. The pictures are very dark and not useful at all but I suppose I'll muddle through. The resin but whether it's all there... I'll
  6. Hi Clever ones. I'm slowly building a collection of braille scale models of British AFV's and looking at options for the Abbot SPG. I believe that Matador Models does an Abbot but I have never dealt with this manufacturer before and know nothing about the quality of the kits, communications and service, thoughts and advice please. Failing the Matador route, is it possible to cross kit, scratch, etc e.g. use a FV432 and scratch the gun & mount? TIA Stuart
  7. Recently completed is this Matchbox/ Revell Challenger I in 1/76 built OOB, build log here: This will be my second AFV for 2020 and although the subject has been built for a while, the dio work was new to me and came in fits and starts. Looking through here I found what I thought would be a good scene. Lots of fun. Stuart
  8. Hi guys, can't honestly remember when I last built armour this size, most probably about +/-45 years ago. Anyhow, I've decided on a quick detour away from 'wingy' things and although the intentions are to build airfield vehicles to display alongside my 1/72 aircraft, I thought I'd have a bit of fun with Revell's Challenger I or is that Matchbox 'cos that's what it says on the plastic. Decided on a WiP as 1/72 vehicles seem a little thin on the ground, so here I am. I do know somethings about tanks but don't I know a thing about a Challenger, so if you know of any glaring/ easy thing
  9. My first AFV in this scale is this Humber Mk.II from Matchbox in 1/76. Built mainly OOB with a few added details: Pistol ports added to turret sides. Replaced the kits lifting and towing points with scratch options. PE sand channels by Hauler added. A couple of accessories from Milicast added. Scratch towing cable replaced the kit example. Painted with AK and Vallejo paints, weathered with oil wash and dusted with pastels. Mounted on a simple desert base with a couple of repainted cheap palm trees. WIP here:
  10. 1/72 AFV seem to be a little thin on the ground, so I thought I'd change it. With a stash reshuffle, I have moved my 1/72-1/76 afv's to my work workbench where I can have a little lunchtime activity, until they need painting that is. Having already having a Challenger I on the go at home, I thought I'd start a little armoured car. In this case it's Matchbox's offering of the Humber Mk II. Albeit that the box is battered, everything seems intack except that the base and decals are missing. Nothing major but I'll obviously will need to find decals fir this. I've made
  11. This is my third build of this kit, done for the "A kit I built as a kid" GB. The first one was done when the kit was a fairly new Matchbox release in the late 70s. The second was sometime around 1986/87 and still exists. This one was the current Revell re-release. Pz.II, 5th Light Division, North Africa 1941. On its base, because it wouldn't be a proper Matchbox tank without it Finally, the obligatory 'penny shot' with the 1986 build - I have no idea how it has survived 34 years and 8 house moved, but there it is.
  12. I first built this one back when I could buy Matchbox kits from my local newsagent, and did so every time I'd saved up the 50p or so I remember them costing back then. I had another go some years later towards what must have been the end of Matchbox's original existence. So here we are for round 3. The current incarnation is courtesy of Revell, so one of their end opening boxes. There are two sprues, both the same colour (boo!!) and both with some unexpected flash (very boo!!!) Instructions are the period Revell cheap as chips pap
  13. Hi all, Nice, simple and above all, quick build to start me off. Airfix's Panzer IV which I would have built aged about 9 - It was completed with a coat of light brown Humbrol paint and I managed to paint the tyres black despite not having any small paintbrushes! I built that one as the short gunned option so this time am going to do the long barrelled one - Aren't options great? Appear to have been moulded in the same colour plastic as I remembered. Anyways - 2 1/2 hours later while listening to a streamed Jes
  14. Saw these two in my local model shop and couldn't resist the sheer nostalgia (don't worry about the Yak) a d seeing as I'm away from home an oob build with a basic toolkit was just about feasible and give me something to amuse myself after hours. Chassis assembled. Wheels done Some assembly That's the tractor done, I'll weather it when I get home. Now on to the 88mm.
  15. Hi Folks, this is my first attempt at an armoured fighting vehicle, my normal subjects are Second World War aircraft or modern jets so please be kind. After a visit to RAF Cosford I had this idea to build a small diorama featuring a World War 1 tank and a British and German aircraft in a dog fight above. Well something I found out during this build is I am not very good at building biplanes and consequently the Sopwith Camel found itself flying straight into the bin of shame, and that's where the Fokker Eindecker will find itself if it doesn't start behaving! Anyway here She is, or shoul
  16. From the RAF Refuelling Set (03302) with a few Dan Taylor Modelworks pieces. With the Matador
  17. I don't think there's a thread for this kit in the GB, and that's a shame. I picked this one up a few days ago: Panzer1 by John Walker, on Flickr This was far and away my favourite Airfix tank kit from my young days. Easy to build, you didn't need to paint it because the colour of the plastic already matched the boxtop and most importantly it didn't have zillions of interleaved road wheels. This is an early Humbrol era example. The colour of the plastic is like nothing I've ever seen in an Airfix box: Panzer2 by John Walker, on Flickr
  18. I started on this set at the end of November 2018, basically building the diorama base and Farmhouse, and then working my way through the figure sets: Highland Infantry (S35) French Cavalry (S36) French Artillery (S37) British Hussars (S43) French Infantry (S44) British Infantry (S45) British Artillery (S46) French Grenadiers (01749-1) Prussian Infantry (01756-9) Waterloo Farmhouse (1709) Farm Accessories (A06044W)
  19. Not available as an individual set, but an element of the Waterloo Gift Set in its various guises.

  21. A simple conversion to an RAF Flatbed bomb carrier. Cab glazing added. Scratched wing mirrors and bomb cradles. Bombs from spares. Cab roof from 03302. Thanks for looking. Feedback always appreciated.

  23. A while back I did a little cross kitting to produce a more accurate looking 1/76 Bedford QL bowser - https://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/235010404-bedford-ql-aircraft-refueller/&tab=comments#comment-2510934 Since then, the remnants of the Airfix QLD/QLT and Refuelling sets have been looking at me asking to be built. I did consider doing more conversions but in the end decided on some nice, relaxing from-the-box builds. So here we have the QLT, 100% straight from the box and the AEC 0854 again pretty much from the box, with the addition of a set of Wee Fri
