  1. The last of my recently built Soviet trifecta. This little BTR is the 1:72 kit by ACE. It is a beautiful kit, but a bit tricky to build. Some of the structures (e.g., smoke grenade rack) are multi-piece PE, all grab handles are made from bent wires, parts have to measured and adjusted to ensure proper fit, and the suspension took a very long time. This is essentially a short-run kit, but for once I felt like I was modeling and not just assembling. I've mentioned it elsehwere, an I'll say it again. I really like ACE's plastic. It reacts quite well to Tamiya Extra Thin, and disolving and then fusing into very strong structures. Great for all the butt-joints of fine tiny pieces. I finished the model as a Soviet machine serving in Jalalabad, Afghanistan in the late 1980s. Paint is MM Acryl. Weatheirng consists of a few washes, and pigment work. I have ordered some tank riders and crew figures, so stay tuned for more pictures sometime soon. As I said, this was an extremely rewarding build. I haven't built 1:72 armor in some years, but this relit that fire in me. I enjoyed this project much more than any of my recent 1:35 armor builds, and I think it looks much cooler on my shelf than the bigger tanks. Might be time to sell off that portion of my stash.
  2. #34/2016 After some pause a new 1/48 vehicle in-between by my dad ACE kit, painted with Gunze, Tamiya and Vallejo Initially I only wanted to try out "Precision Ice and Snow" on my dad´s model. But then I thought why not try out a little vignette. Done this for the first time. Took about an hour. Found a piece of panel wood. The rills on the backside matched the track width of the vehicle, so I decided to do a snowy field road. Used some gravel, grass and bushes (leftovers of our former model train phase) and fixed it to the panel with white glue. turned out like this...

  4. Let's have a look at the following Ebay offers: http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/1-48-ACE-DASSAULT-RA...=item414f8fd970 http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/1-48-ACE-RAFALE-B-AR...=item3effce1f85 A Korean reboxing from the 1/48th Revell kits. Anyway the price - P&P incl. - is rather attractive respectively £25.86 and £17.45! Also a Rafale C mixing the B and the M parts! - ref.1203 - Rafale M - ref.1205 - Rafale B - ref.1206 - Rafale C V.P.

  6. #33/2015 After the Autoblinda and the 38(t), here´s my dad´s newest quarterscale WW2 vehicle. Decided to do something a bit different. Used the new Tamiya kit and made an AA truck out of it. The Flak is from ACE, the flak base from gaso.line, the wooden "outline" on the cargo board are matchsticks. DAK palmtree decals from the sparebox.
  7. Hi gents; I thought I might have a change of scenery for my third build for this GB so I chose a car; the ACE Citroën 11CV - in the Gentleman's Scale, of course. The father of my childhood best mates owned one of these - an exotic rarity in the 1970s - and it remains fondly in my memory as a classically beautiful car. I always imagined that one day I would own one myself, but experience proved me a dangerous liability when placed in proximity with motorised transport, so I never actually learned to drive... however thanks to the Eastern European model manufacturing industry I can have one of my own, albeit one too small to fit my fingertip into. I thought it would sit well next to my Armee de l'Air models and as it looks like it will be about an inch and a half long when finished it won't take up much space either. Here it is: The box is... erm, a little more spacious than is strictly necessary: There aren't that many parts and only a few transfers: The instructions include a template for making windows out of clear plastic sheet: I'm hoping to produce a black civilian car, but there appears to be some mould damage or multiple small pockmarks in the plastic on the roof and bonnet; if I can't smooth it out it will look bad under shiny paint, so I might end up doing the French army option. Cheers, Stew
  8. Just to prove that I occasionally complete models, and not just natter on about them, below please find photographs of my latest completed model. As the title indicates, this is the nice little Academy P-39N/Q in 1/72nd scale. I have finished it as a P-39Q in the markings of Grigoriy Andreyevich Rechkalov, the third-ranking Soviet ace, twice a Hero of the Soviet Union, with some 56 victories, most of them on the "Kobra". The kit went together very easily, with little or no filling needed, and I think it looks the part of an Airacobra. I chose to weather this a little, but not too much, as this was a Hero of the Soviet Union's aeroplane, and in pretty good nick from the photographs I've seen. An attractive little aircraft, and it looks nice next to one of my Shturmovik's. I realise the photographs aren't brilliant, but neither is the camera nor the photographer. Positive comments are of course welcome, whilst negative comments will be dealt with by the appropriate verbal abuse! Please enjoy (I hope I didn't make too much of a muddle of it)! Best Regards, Tovarish Jason

  12. After the Panther wanted something simple so picked out the Ace P-51. This is the early cannon armed Allison Engined Mustang. The ACE kit is a Korean boxing of the Accurate Miniatures kit, and is nice and simple As is normal work starts with the cockpit - first the instrument panel Then built up the cockpit and sidewalls Fitted the fuselage halves together then slotted the instrument panel in from the front Finally fitted the Allison engine nose, and filled the small gaps with some Mr Dissolved Putty, then sanded back Peter
