  1. Hello Fellow modelers ... We have Four succesful Single type Builds for Armor. The M3/M4, Panzer IV, Tiger tank, And Patton. We also have two Soviet Armor proposal’s in the T 55 and now with the T 34. Let me ask you this question ? Would there be any interest in a Group Build of British Armored Fighting Vehicles ? This would most likely be in 2019-2020 plenty of time to gather everything together. This would cover From 1945 to present and each has countless variants and progeny to offer up as options. Im just curious as it seems we have interest in both German and US Armor. There are two build ideas showing good signs of some interest in Soviet Armor but no one has offered up British Armor ? I’m proposing this as a group build that will cover British Armored Fighting Vehicles. This would incorporate all British Armor proposed, designed, produced, and operated by any country from January 1st 1945 to the Present day. This of course would include both UK & Commonwealth units. To help Clarify the restrictions or rules for what is allowed. A.) The Vehicle of choice would need to be operated By the British military, Commonwealth, or others after January 1st. B.) The vehicle of choice would need to have been purchased by the British, Commonwealth, or Foreign State military (Army, navy, marines, or royal air force) after January 1st. C.) The vehicle would need to be designed by a British or Commonwealth based Company after January 1st 1945 (Centurion, Chieftain, & Crusader). D.) The vehicle had to be built in Britain or a Commonwealth after the date of January 1st 1945. This includes tanks like the Late Churchill’s that were built and used into the Korean war. Im sure there were plenty of types built in and used during World War Two were operated by the British and Commonwealth after the war for varying lengths of times. Again if you or anyone else is interested but are not sure please contact me. I would be glad to research and give you an answer. Im always looking for input and help so please feel free to offer ideas and/or constructive criticism. I realize this might upset some of the original joiners of this group build. That isnt my intention. I asked for input and votes earlier towards this idea. The results are in and of those who voted this was how the votes tallied out. Final count was 4 votes in favor of inclusion of all AFV/APC. And 2 votes of inclusion of all “C” Type tanks. This is 6 of 13 members. Less than 50%, however it seems no one else voted. So I will incorporate both post 1945. “ALL SCALES ALLOWED” Now some quick ideas for the qualifying variants. Heres an Airfix 1/72 centurion kit. Another one is this Centurion in Australian service. Then heres a quick look at a couple of kits of the Chieftains. First up is this Chieftain Mk.2 from Takom. And an interesting option with the Berlin Camouflage is Takom’s Mk.10. Next up is a Tamiya Challenger Mk.1. and a Tamiya Challenger 2 As there are a substantial number of Variants, Versions, and Prototypes just in British service I cant write down all of them. If anyone knows of a type they would like to build. That or an offshoot that they are not sure about please ask ? I will investigate and let you know. -Standard build rules apply such as the 25% rule. If you are using individual track links talk to me as i consider those to be a kit in there own right. I will hold the same absolute here as I did with my Patton build. NO WHIF’S - there are so many versions and sub-types of these that we dont imaginary tanks. I will consider working prototypes so long as they aren't paper projects. A paper project is just another form of whif to me. please ask i will research and advise. I am of course looking for any interested members to be co-host’s INTERESTED MEMBERS 1. Corsairfoxfouruncle 2. DAG058 3. Patman 4. Dads203 5. Arniec 6. PlaStix 7. Plasto 8. SleeperService 9.

  3. 13/8 Kick off. More of a place holder at the moment as work still proceeds on my 1/16th Renault Ft. I mentioned buying the Bradley along with some other goodies including a crew for it made by Trumpeter on the FT thread a few weeks ago. Trumpeter included two sheets of camo decals for the uniforms worn by the crew and I have been experimenting with them while waiting for the FT to dry. It takes a while to decal a crewman but the effect is rather nice: Other goodies I will be including in the build are: And of course the Meng model (enough reviews and unboxings around so I will skip that.
  4. Today I'll show you something rather unusual here. It's Armoured Personnel Carrier "Rosomak" (Wolverine). This model is recently released by the IBG Models company in 1/35 scale. Let me present you the first movie from a serie - Unboxing.
  5. Here's my 1/35 Trumpeter BTR 80A. It's a great kit but you must get the sit of the suspension right early doors - I didn't as you will see. I tried to sag the tyres with small screws but I was in great danger of wrecking the hubs and adjusting the screws when the wheels were on was tricky Painted with Vellejo acrylics which I still find tricky to get consistent results from but does give authentic looking colour I think. The KFOR script was done with some stencils I picked up which I was pleased with. Let me know what you think - plenty still to learn but getting there Cheers David
  6. Hey all I present my first fully completed project vehicle. This a 1/35 Revell BTR-70 I've had sitting on my for years windowsill for years as a three-tone GDR version. After a foray into respraying an old T-80 in Olive Green, and discovering it has a bang-on Soviet armour look, I decided to recolour my BTR. I then used some old decals from a Tamiya T-62 (I don't know how accurate the combination is), and put to use some old desert Mig Pigments in my first attempt to weather up some armour (my first successful attempt was a Y-Wing). I have some old Dragon Motor Rifle Troops as well, which need a bit of tidying up to go with it. The cardboard I have it resting on has me thinking of a simple dusty base for it, roughly the same size as the vehicle. The vehicle itself is missing the odd component. I think I have the parts somewhere but, couldn't be bothered to find them, lol. Going to add a tiny bit of stowage that I have that would suit a Russian vehicle, namely a single Jerry can that differs from the rest (I don't know what it was from originally), and maybe a sleeping roll or two and a folded tarp. Overall, I think it turned out quite well. I did worry that it looked a bit heavy at first, but it seems to have worked out Looking forward to any thoughts you guys have Gaz
  7. BTR-60PB Upgraded Trumpeter 1/35 First finished model of 2016. It's a nice kit apart from the rather fiddly headlights, which put up a bit of a fight. I've had the kit hanging around for over a year so I'm glad to finally get it built. I've got a long term plan to build a collection of some of the various 8 wheeled APCs and related vehicles that operate around the world, so this makes a good start to that collection. The wip is here Thanks for looking Andy
