  1. More accurately, the kit I never finished as a kid. This time I’m going to see it through to the end - positive thinking or self-delusion, we shall see.
  2. German Pz.Kpfw IV Ausf J Medium Tank Trumpeter 1:16 History The Panzerkampfwagen IV Ausf J was the last version of the Panzer IV medium tank to enter production before the end of the Second World War. By the time it entered production in the summer of 1944 the Panzer IV had declined in importance as a battle tank, and so of the three factories that had produced the Ausf H only Nibelungenwerke produced the Ausf J, while Krupp concentrated on the StuG IV and Vomag on the JadgPanzer IV. Despite this a total of 1,758 Panzer IV Ausf Js were produced, along with 278 chassis for the Panzer IV
  3. Roman Centurion (1 Century) ICM 1:16 (16302) Although Britmodeller has members from all around the world, there are several of us, including Mike 'The Boss' who reside in and around the City of Chester in North West England. Chester was originally founded by the Roman Army in the year 79 AD, as the fortress of Deva. The street plan is today almost exactly that laid down by the Romans, and the city is rich in Roman heritage and archaeology. Chester is one of the few cities in Europe that still retains it's ancient city walls, and Roman stonework is still visible a
  4. Porsche 356 Coupe and Cabriolet Revell 1:16 The Porsche 356 range first hit the roads in 1948, with early examples built in Austria. The 356 has an aircooled engine in the back driving the rear wheels and is known as being a lightweight nimble performer. The 356 was built in coupe or cabriolet body style and Revell have given us 2 large scale kits in 1:16 scale. The Coupe kit is a B series, launched in 1959, with improvements and re-styleing over the first A series. The cabriolet is a later C series launched in 1965 this was the final facelift of the 356 range and had a large
  5. RCMP Female Officer ICM 1:16 ICM continue their theme of World Guards, with this model of a Female Royal Canadian Mounted Police Officer, which also includes her dog. The kit comes on two sprues of grey styrene and one of black, with a separate black pedestal. The parts are very well moulded with no sign of flash or other imperfections, and while the build is relatively simple, the painting, although one of the easiest in the series, is still a challenge to get the look right, both with the figure and the dog. Being 1:16 scale it’s large enough for the detail to be seen a
  6. Yeoman Warder ICM 1:16 ICM continue their theme of World Guards, with this model of a Yeoman Warder, also known as a Beefeater. The kit comes on two sprues of grey styrene and one of black, with a separate black pedestal. The parts are very well moulded with no sign of flash or other imperfections, and while the build is relatively simple, the painting is not one for the feint hearted. Being 1:16 scale it’s large enough for the detail to be seen and painted, yet small enough to have a nice collection in a display cabinet. As with the other kits in this series
  7. US Marine Guard ICM 1:16 ICM are continuing to release kits, in their World Guards series. The fifth to be issued is that of a US Marine Sergeant if full dress uniform. The two sprues of grey styrene are very well moulded with no sign of flash or other imperfections, and while the build is relatively simple, the painting is certainly not. Being 1:16 scale it’s large enough for the detail to be seen and painted, yet small enough to have a nice collection in a display cabinet. I have to say, first of all, is that the instructions are not very clear. They
  8. While I have a load of partially built kits on, around, and under the bench, I've recently been suffering from a lack of mojo. So I figured I'd pull the Revell 1:16 Model T Ford (1912) out of my stash. Despite it being a larger scale kit (1:16) it is lacking in detail. There is no engine included, but looking at the chassis mouldings there appears to be space for an electric motor / gears and drive shaft. So perhaps the original release was a motorised kit, as per the original Airfix 1:12 Blower Bentley? Anyway, it should build up to be a nice model.
  9. NOTE: Given Photobucket's recent block on 3rd party hosting, all the images in this thread are currently unavailable. I will look to host the photos elsewhere and rebuild the thread but this will obviously take some time. However, the completed build can be found HERE Hi all, With my build of HMS Warspite stalled, I decided to get started on the big King Tiger. As you can see the box is brimming with parts, 1800 or so including the tracks. I won't bore you all with the ins and outs of the kit so I'll get straight to it. Starting with the lower
  10. I'm in the process of upgrading this Heng Long R/C "toy", which is actually a rather nice piece of kit. So far I've done the following to it: Added track tensioner device to the rear idler wheels. Metal drive sprocket & idler wheels added to interface with the track tensioner. New metal final drive housing. Added return roller to reduce track slap - this still needs work to put it in-line with the inner edge of the track. Replace BB unit with recoil unit & strobe flash. Recoil unit doesn't work with this barrel, sadly. BB unit adapted to accept strobe wiring tidied up & zip-ti
  11. M-ATV MRAP Trumpeter 1:16 History In the summer of 2008, the U.S. Department of Defence (DoD) began to examine the possibility of developing and procuring a lighter-weight, all-terrain capable MRAP variant to address the poor roads and extreme terrain of Afghanistan. Source selection activity considered responses from more than 20 companies to a Request for Information (RfI)/Market Survey dated 21 August 2008 and in mid-November 2008 the U.S. government issued a pre-solicitation for an M-ATV. In early December 2008 the M-ATV formal Request for Proposals (RFP) was issued. The original M-ATV
  12. Hi all, I'm not big into Armour, don't know my tanks well so would like some advise and what you think to this idea. Firstly, I would like an R/C Tiger tank, on a budget, I know this does not bode well, but hear me out.... The R/C is not to go blasting everywhere but more as a novelty (it will sit in my display case most of the time), the Tiger has to look like a Tiger (so long as it looks OK, it does not have to be rivit correct), It HAS to be a Tiger, early or mid. King etc is no good, it's an Tiger early or mid or nothing. But most importantly I do not have an endless budget, less than £
  13. . . In this case , one dead Heng Long KV 1 hull , and wave some tools about - . - Can you tell what it is yet ?
  14. Does anyone know what the accuracy issues are with this one? I've heard from a reliable source that it has problems compared to the old WSN/Torro kit in terms of shape, but other than that I don't know. At £50, it's a really cheap way to get into R/C AFVs, so I was interested to see whether the errors/issues are fixable, or whether an old WSN/Torro kit would be a better idea. I believe that the new HB Tiger I is based on the WSN moulds, so that kit could be a good source of spares for an otherwise OOP kit.
  15. If any of you chaps are posting WIPs on the forums, and want the 1:16 tag at the front of them so that we can spot them (it's an admin only function), just let me know by PM with a link to the thread. You can see it on Blimp's thread here.
  16. Just seen this on various websites. It may be small, even in 1:16, but with a full interior it looks like a nice model. http://www.perthmilitarymodelling.com/newkitnews/takom.html
  17. Hobbyboss are now showing a 1:16 Tiger I amongst their december releases. http://www.hobbyboss.com/a/en/Preview/2012/1012/914.html It will be interesting to see the reaction. How many people here will have it on their wishlist?
