Hi all Well, this will be my first blog build on a modelling site, so I will have to learn how to upload images etc - so bare with me there. I decided to buy a kit wth a high reputation for accuracy in moulding so I went for Tamiya's Wespe Sd.Kfz.124. I've done a lot and am still doing a whole load of research on the vehicle and other modellers builds to make sure I don't make too many missteps on the way. It'll be a long build for me with other commitments but looking forward to it. Don't hesitate to comment or point out any issue's - I won't take offence... As regards after market upgrades (with budget restrictions ) I decided on: Eduard's PE 35 450 RB Models barrel - 10.5cm L/28 SdKfz 124 Wespe 10.5 cm leFH 18 (Although no instructions came with it, so might need some help there...:) Masterclub Pz.Kpfw. II, WESPE all metal tracks-MTL 35069 So, once more unto the breech. Off to start pulling together additional materials, research and get my area sorted out. Long negotiations with "her indoors".... Cheers Simon.
Hello, First post, and the first kit that I have done in donkeys, so here goes. Having just watched the movie Grand Prix (great action awful plot), and the recent Goodwood FOS feed on line, I got all enthused about building something, so a coin toss and some lost ebay bids ended up with the RA272. It looks a lot of fun, but in all of the ones that I have seen built, I am going to attempt to reduce the models "chunkiness" that comes with it being polystyrene. The photo-etch kit looks nice, so will be tracking one of those down, but I will be scratch building a lot of the components to make it hunker down better and look more lithe. The rivet detail and panel lines are tasks, as is the suspension, running gear, and some of the space frame, obviously engine and cockpit detail too. Also want to avoid using screws on the panels, so scratching my head on how I am going to do this. Will probably use current images as the reference, rather than recreate the car of the 60's, but given that their are 2 driven vehicles and a few display replicas it will be tricky to choose to go for shiny or super-shiny. Wish me luck!
