  1. Hi folks. Here's my work on the Stug III ausf. F/8 by Dragon from the 90s. Not a great kit (a lot of recycled parts and thus detail that needs to be erased on the fenders which means the tread detail is lost). Their other Stugs were better in that regard. Thanks for looking
  2. German Drivers (1939-1945) 35642 1:35 ICM So many vehicle kits arrive bereft of driver figure, so there's bound to be a market for additional figure to fill these seats. The seating position of vehicles can be quite different between trucks and cars, and even between types of these vehicles. Also, not every officer cared to have, or was appointed a driver, so sometimes drove themselves – the shame of it! This small set from ICM gives you four figures to fill those empty seats. It arrives in a sub-figure sized box with a lift off lid and tray lid inside, with a single sprue inside that has been attacked with sprue-cutters to enable it to fit in the box. It was also wrapped in the longest and thinnest releasable bag I have seen, which was unusual! I've attached the sprue back together for aesthetic reasons, but as you can see where it was cut you won't be upset when you open your box up. The boxtop shows some neat examples of the use for the drivers, as well as giving you a sneak peek at what they look like, and I do rather like the dynamics of the painting, with the cut-away doors and so forth. That chap in the saloon car is just a bit too cheerful, given the danger he's in though. The guy in the top left is also looking a bit cheesed off at being rear-ended whilst flying over two other vehicles too. It's safe to say that these figures are all posed in the seated position, and two are dressed in standard Wehrmacht uniforms with a forage and patrol cap on their heads. One other figure has a smock coat over his uniform with a lace-up neck, and the final one is an officer with a rather relaxed hand draped over the top of his steering wheel. Two of the drivers forage cap and smock guy are looking to their left (the two on top on the box art), while patrol cap guy seems to be looking at his steering wheel, perhaps at a map? Each figure comes broken down as torso, individual legs and arms, head and hat, with a couple of ammo pouches for the belt around the smock bedecked gentleman. The instructions are on a single sheet of glossy paper, with part numbers and colour call outs that reference a chart on the rear that shows Revell and Tamiya colour codes, plus the name of the colour in English and Ukrainian (that's a guess). Sculpting and moulding is excellent as we have come to expect from ICM, and the figures will doubtless fit a lot of applications without any adjustment, although that isn't guaranteed, so prepare yourself for a little sanding and such to adapt them. Conclusion A useful set of figures to add a little human scale to your German WWII vehicles, with typical quality from ICM's figure people. Available from their UK importers, H G Hannants Ltd.

  3. Dear fellow Britmodellers, this is Fujimi's 1/72 Opel Blitz Ambulance truck. Painted with Gunze/Mr.Hobby acrylics. Photographs by Wolfgang Rabel.
  4. I rarely build Axis vehicles, preferring to celebrate the Allies who defeated Nazism, but I have always had a soft spot for the Tamiya Krupp Protze, which I built as a kid not long after it was released. Today, as part of my demo at Scale Scotland, I started work on a recent re-release of this venerable soft skin kit. KP by jongwinnett, on Flickr First job was to scratchbuild some pedals, as the Tamiya mould ignores these: Scale Scotland by jongwinnett, on Flickr The accelerator was fashioned from a piece of plastic coffee stirrer donated by a colleague - the rib allowing the part to stand proud of the foot well. Clutch and brake pedals were discs of 2.5mm plastic rod: Scale Scotland by jongwinnett, on Flickr And here we see the state of play when the show closed. Not much progress, but I’m enjoying it: Scale Scotland by jongwinnett, on Flickr
  5. This small tank I've been working on for half a year or so. While Dragon's plastic parts fit nicely, the photo etch side skirts need a lot of tender-love-and-care to get them positioned correctly (something I've not entierly achieved). However I feel they look much better than the kit's oversized plastic parts and you can add some 'battle-damage' with a pen. The vehicle was painted with Gunze/Mr.Hobby acrylics and weathered with pastel chalks and artists' oils. It represents a tank from 6. Panzerdivision at Kursk, 1943. Photographs taken by Mr. Wolfgang Rabel of IGM Cars & Bikes.
  6. Ok, this isn't "Armour" but since I've seen a Kübelwagen here, I suppose this is the right section to present my 1/72 Profiline Steyr 1500 Truck. I have a special interest in this vehicle as it was built in my country - in the town of Steyr in Upper Austria, to be exact (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Steyr). Profiline seems to be a subsidiary of Special Hobby, and the same kit is also marketed under their 'Special Armour' range. It comes in various set-ups, as a cargo truck or ambulance vehicle. When CMK/Special Hobby attended IMPS Austria's Go Modelling in March 2016 they had some version of this kit reduced -50%. I got myself three. Here's the first one finished. As it is of short-run nature, some fiddling and fettling is neccessary to get everything lined-up. Cargo are resin items from CMK, my spares box and scratch built tarpaulin (from rubber gloves). Painted with Gunze/Mr.Hobby acrylics, weathering with artist's oils and pastel chalks. Windshield wipers and rear view mirror are scratch built from photo etch scraps. Hope you like this tiny truck!
  7. Hello, this is my 1/72 Schatton Daimler Benz DB4500 w/ resin cargo from Blackdog. Painted with Gunze/Mr.Hobby acrylics. Thanks for looking! Happy easter Weekend! cheers from Vienna, Roman
  8. Hello, thanks for your interest in this topic. It's Maco's 1/72 Schwerer Wehrmachtsschlepper with 15cm Rocket Launcher 43. A neat little kit, built out of the box, only the link & length tracks require some patience. Painted with acrylics from the Gunze range, weathered with artist oils, pastel chalks and a soft pencil for chipping effects. Hope you like it!
  9. Hello, my attempt on small-scale armor: 1/72 Revell's Panzer III Ausf.M with side skirts and small details from Eduard Photo Etch. This is a vehicle of 6.Panzerdivision, in action at Kursk, 1943. Painted with colours from the Gunze/Mr.Hobby range. Decals from the box. Thanks for looking! Roman
  10. This is Caesar Miniature's 1/72 SdKfz 10/4. Such a big box - such a small kit. The "crew included" isn't very useful as it comes from their "Panzer Riders" set. The figures are well done but do not interact with the vehicle or the gun in any way. Also note that the applied armor on the front cab is in fact absent from the kit. The tiny instructions gave me a headache, you need a magnifying glass to make out the part numbers. The weakest part of the kit are the sideskirts. These are too thick for this scale, I replaced them with Mesh, framed in metal U-profiles. On my first attempt I tried to install the amunition boxes that I'd sawn off the original part. This didn't work too well as the glue messed up the mesh when viewed from the other side, so I left them off in the end. The base comes from an old Matchbox kit. A windscreen from clear acetate was added. Thanks for your interest.
