  1. to a new area of Britmodeller that we've been pondering for an absolute age, but have only just gotten round to making, after engaging with two members that also have manufacturer hats that caused some confusion in the Rumourmonger area next door, which was originally intended to be a member driven area for finding out about new products. This one's going to be uncluttered by guesses and surmises, and has instead been developed with manufacturers in mind, to allow them to post their new products, to ask us what we think, and ask for assistance from the vast collective expertise of our hobby (self excluded - I know nothing!). The topics here will be started by accredited manufacturers (not shops, traders etc.), who will need to register as such by dropping me a PM and telling me which company they're involved with. We'll then switch their membership category over to the newly minted Manufacturer type, which will give them the relevant permissions to start a topic to let us know what they're up to. Us members will be able to reply, but crucially WON'T be able to start topics and muddy the waters with duplicates, wishlists and so forth. Obviously it's a work-in-progress, so we can expect some teething issues, which we'll do our best to get out of the way quickly, but we anticipate it being of great use to those manufacturers and product developers that take advantage of it. We've only got two members converted as yet, which are @petr@SpecialHobby and @Jan Polc, but we'll have more in due course, and will be inviting people as and when we remember. My memory is poor, so if we don't invite you from the outset, don't get upset, just drop me a PM and I'll go and add you in just as soon as is practical. Peace out
  2. Hi all, this posting might sound like some kind of a rant, but it is nothing but pure desperation… I would really, really want to see a plastic injection moulded kit of a DD Sherman in 1/35th scale. In fact I am waiting for one of the manufacturers to produce such a kit for at least 15 years, but to no avail so far. What might be the (economic) reasons for that? Am I the only modeler to want a DD Sherman? Or is it technically to difficult/expensive to develop/produce a kit of a DD Sherman? If so, I will give up my hopes. But until I do so: Could it make sense to contact a few manufacturers directly? Which ones? Any experiences? Any ideas? Best regards from a sad and somewhat grumpy Richard
  3. For the Luftwaffe experten, I would be grateful for thoughts on which paint manufacturers offer the best representation of the following: RLM 81 RLM 74/75 I mostly use Xtracolor, but the 81 they offer looks too green to be Braunviolett (I know there are variations). Meanwhile the 74 and 75 appear too close in hue and offer much less contrast than is apparent on period photos. I recently had a go with a couple of random other greys, which gave (I felt) a better result (as shown here - NB it's not finished yet!). I would be very grateful for advice or recommendations.
