  1. TopDrawings #88 – M16 Half-Track (ISBN: 9788366148758) Kagero Publishing via Casemate UK The M16 Half Track Multiple Gun Motor Carriage was usually known by the easier and shorter name M16 Half-Track, derived from the M3 Half-track and fitted with a quartet of heavy-barreled M2 Browning .50cal machine guns, the same type that were fitted to Allied fighters and bombers of the day. The quad mount was nicknamed the meat-chopper for obvious reasons later in its career as it became used as ground support rather than Anti-Aircraft when the German Luftwaffe ran out of a
  2. I've been needing an excuse to do this one. This is by TAKOM and represents a Prototype vehicle to superceed the M26 Pershing to combat the Russian IS-3 during late WW2. The war ended before this was completed and other options took over. Let's see what comes of this one after 24 hours (2x12'ish).
  3. Dear fellow Britmodellers, here's my 1/72 M24 Chaffee from Bulgarian company OKB Grigorov. This was my first build from that manufacturer, and I was pleasantly surprised. The kit has great detail, including metal parts, but it's not easy to assemble. I painted the model with Gunze/Mr.Hobby acrylics. All photographs by Wolfgang Rabel. Thanks for your interest, best greetings from Vienna!
  4. US Army Vehicle Markings 1944 (9781612007373) Casemate UK There are certain vehicle markings everyone is familiar with, the White US Star for one. However there are may more markings on military vehicles which the casual observer knows nothing about at all, from unit code letters, to tactical markings, through to bridge weight, and even during this time period debarkation codes for the invasion of Europe. Using a combination of historical photographs, and colour diagrams this publication looks at all the markings seen on US vehicles o the period. The book also loo
  5. Hi again all, Inspired by the recent UH-1C RFI I've scanned a few Hueys for your delectation. They are taken at various locations, as marked. I hope you like them. UH-1C/M at Camp Robinson AAF, Arkansas, May 1982 UH-1H at Jefferson City, Missouri, May 1982 UH-1M at Camp Robinson AAF, Arkansas, May 1982 UH-1Hs and UH-1Vs at Dannelly Field, Alabama, October 1980 UH-1V at Forbes Field, Kansas, May 1982 Martin
  6. Modern U.S. ARMY (1950/2016) Acrylic paint set. AMMO of Mig Jiménez AMMO continue issuing new paint sets at a rate of knots, and are garnering some fans with the quality of the paint. The set arrives in the standard long cardboard box with a header to facilitate hanging on one of those merry-go-round display stands in shops. Inside is a clear tray that holds six dropper style paint pots neatly in the box, avoiding all the paints spilling out at once in a Donkey-Kong style. The bottles contain 17ml of paint, plus a stainless steel ball bearing for easy mixing of the p
  7. Hi everyone, just put the finishing touches on my attempt at Hobbycrafts 1/48 Beaver, which I hope you don`t mind me sharing Finished to represent a RU-6A Beaver of the 146th Radio Research Company, Army Security Agency, US Army, Vietnam Which were used to monitor North Vietnamese Radio Traffic and Intelligence Gathering I had to do on of these to compliment my RU-1A Otter I did a little while back that you may remember Apart from the obvious aerials and dipoles, made a few improvements the the base kit, including: brake pipes, steps on the undercarr
  8. After recently finishing a P-47 in 1/48, and currently planning to join a group Spitfire build starting in a few weeks on the IPMS Ireland website, I thought I'd try and be a latecomer to this GB as I'm keen to build my Monogram AH-1 dating from the late 80s. I started it around 2 weeks ago, and I might get it finished in time for the June deadline! The kit I think has been around since the early 80s and it's pretty simple with a low parts count and raised panel lines. I added some aftermarket in the form of an Eduard mask, a Master 3 barrel gun and some aftermarket decals (which in the
  9. Hi Everyone, Just put the finishing touches on my `Easy Build` Hobbyboss 1/48 Huey Which I painted up in early US Army camouflage, inspired by a photo of a `B` model Huey of the 117th Aviation Company, based at Ban Me Thuot in the early 1960`s..... ...I found in Squadrons `US Army Aviation in Vietnam book. It really was an easy build but some people may not like the lack of some details, for me, I just added: seat belts, cyclic stick, a bit of cabin roof detail , sanded the ends of the skids into shape....... ....added footpedals and some hydra
  10. Hi Everyone, Thought I`d show you some pic`s of my latest effort: my attempt at a Vietnam era Kiowa from the 1/48 Heller kit Finished to represent an aircraft of the 17th Cavalry Regiment, based at Quan Loi, Vietnam, 1970 What you see is mostly what you get in the box, but with the cable cutters left off and I decided to make life a bit more difficult.... .....by displaying it with all the doors removed as seen in many photo`s taken at the time. The rear doors were easy enough but the front windows come with part of the windscreen frame and up
  11. US Army WWII Figure 1:48 Special Hobby There seems to be fair amount of 1:48 kits around and not not much in the way of extras out there, This figure from Special Hobby under their CMK label is a walking figure carrying a rifle. As much as figures in the scale are welcome, its good that we get one in a non combat pose as well. The figure is well sculpted with separate arms and head. This figure excellent and just what is needed to bring your 1:48 model to life. Highly recommended. Review sample courtesy of
  12. Hi Everyone, Hope you don`t mind seeing my attempt at making a Army Security Agency, RU-1A Otter that I managed to finish this week. Cobbled together from Hobbycrafts 1/48 kit, filler, bits of wire and plastic sheet. Inspired by a photo in the Squadron Signal book U.S. Army Aviation in Vietnam and some help from some nice chaps on Hyperscale Finished to represent an aircraft of the 146th Radio Research Company, U.S. Army, Vietnam in the early 1970`s Operating under names like `Laffing Otter` and `Cafe Joe` ( though I don`t know what configurati
  13. Hello and thanks for your interest. Here's my 1/72 Dragon Sherman M4A3, with stowage items from Blackdog, Quickboost and my spares box. Painted with Gunze/Mr.Hobby acrylics, weathered with artists oils and pastel chalks. Photographed by Wolfgang Rabel, IGM Cras & Bikes. I forgot to add the antenna .... *DOH* At least you know where it's supposed to be! # Thanks for your interest. Cheers from Vienna!
  14. Alright gents, So I'm going to go ahead and throw my hat into it (or try at least). I am only ever able to put a model together when the stars have aligned just right, and I guess the galaxy has done me a favor for once. I finally finished putting my office/ hobby room together the other day and aside from some necessary equipment for my airbrush, I'm going to build me a model dangit. Anyway I had a choice of either a -T, -J, -W, -F, or even a -G( Cobra Company kit), and alas I am going to try my hand at the -F. Although now that I think about it the -G probably would have been a
  15. Hi Everyone, Just finished the missing Mohawk from my collection, so I thought I`d share some pic`s Rodens 1/48 OV-1B Mohawk with the SLAR Completed in the markings of the 131st Aviation Company, U.S. Army, Phu Bai, Vietnam, 1967 Built almost completely OOB With just seat belts, aerial wires added and a few bits of wire here and there. Decals are the kits and I still had a bit of silvering to paint round Hope you enjoy, thanks for looking Cheers Russ
  16. The next project, Need a break from green and black so I have decided to finish this project. I started it last year and for some reason put it to one side. Now I'm going to finish it. I was this morning going to start on the AFV Club Scimitar but having a few part started kits knocking around slowly getting damaged I thought it best to try and get some finished. A lot of work involved as the Tamiya kit is dated, It still builds into a great little tank if you put your mind too it. Dan
  17. North American/Fiat QF-91C In 1961 the US DoD authorised the loan of two Luftwaffe Fiat G.91s for trials by the US Army. These were flown alongside Douglas A4D-2 Skyhawks and a Northrop N-156 (F-5 prototype). One was an Italian built G.91R-1, c/n 0052 that served with the Luftwaffe (BD+102) whilst the other was a German built G.91R-3 (c/n 0065) Luftwaffe EC+105. Although all three types were highly regarded none were deemed suitable for the role of Close Air Support or Forward Air Controller. Rumours abound that this decision was based on political grounds as the US Army could not be seen to
  18. Been off the scene for a while sorting things out following my Redundancy (a good thing actually!) So, here we go with a new build using the recent HobbyBoss release of the GMC 750 Gallon Tanker. Over the last few days I have been putting together this really good kit This is a busy kit! And has plenty of parts but, there are NO rubber tyres (I know some of you hate those) There is quite a detailed engine which is an integral part of this build and you can't get past this. The chassis has 17 parts + the engine which in itself comprises 20 parts This construct is very stable
  19. Was minding my own business, watching the dull WHU/MU game, when the house started shaking with chopper action - the US Army was flying downwind into Flag airport right over my house! Needless to say, I didn't have my camera to hand, but ran over to the airport to get a few shots though the fence. A total of 5 X AH-64, including a Longbow Apache, 3 X CH-47 and 3 X UH-60. I couldn't see the '60s at the airport, and the others were not positioned conducive to good photography (away on the ramp, behind hangars, a 10ft fence and sun directly against...). Still, a few shots of record:
  20. Right, with the M3 Stuart almost done, I'm considering these to build next. Originally I was going to build the MRC/AFV Club OH-58D but I#m waiting on some nice resin crew figures to arrive. Here are the candidates... First up and my favorite is the Old Tamiya Chieftain and just a touch of AM. And then or the same era is the M-60... same drills with the AM, this one I've been collecting the detail stuff for a few years. I'm leaning toward the Chieftain ? Regards Dan
  21. Hi all, I don`t build many choppers, I`d like to but they take up too much room, but when this became available cheap I couldn`t resist it. was actually the German and French boxing, so had to raid the decal stash for the markings added one or two missing details in the cockpit but mostly OOB left the rotor blades detachable for storage Hope you enjoy, thanks for looking Cheers Russ
  22. Was at a loss over Christmas and just a bit busy as one would expect ... Dah, Dah Dah!!! and NO MODELLING HUH! Comes the weekend and I'm getting withdrawal symptons so 'what shall I build? My newly aquired: Merit Models M19 Diamond T? Sweeeeettttt!!! Miniart European Tram? Gorgeous or what? HobbyBoss Soviet AT-1 SPG? Argh, Kasten type track! or THIS.......... Yep, You guessed it OK, so it's a TRUCK you say, but I haven't really done a truck for quite a while but it's a very full box (NO CANOPY though, which is a bit disappointing ) And I need my junkie fix
  23. Hi everyone, just finished the last of my Roden 1/48 Mohawks Done as an aircraft of 131st AVN Company, Vietnam, 1969 Built OOB apart from a few bits of wire and card and a bucket of lead shot to keep the nose down still didn`t quite manage to avoid decal silvering, but best result yet... putting them straight down onto microsol and hitting with hair dryer. Thought I`d also show the rest of the collection so far; all Roden 1/48, first the OV-1A adding a bit of colour with the `Hi Vis` markings next is my previous
  24. Kit: 1/72 Dragon M4A3 105mm 8th Tank Batallion, 4th Armoured Division, France 1944 Kit base from an old Matchbox kit (M24 Chaffeee) Thanks for your interest!
