  1. Hello Britmodellers! While the Vigilante is under the leisure sanding work, I decided to build and paint some figures in parallel. Actually, I was a big fan of the Dragon’s «Nam» series back in the late ‘90s, so it’s not a surprise that I chose this kit. I’m not so hurry with this build, but I want to have some fun and recall my painting skills. The box art: An «instruction» along with the painting scheme: Sprue A: Sprue A (backside): Looks not not so bad in comparison with the Dragon, I think it’s an excellent sculpting work here. Sprue B: I love the basic M16A1 on the left side of the sprue, but these on the right (along with M203) is something not so good in my opinion - I need something to replace these later. Sprue B (backside): This time I choose the water-based paints and get a two interesting sets: I’m not so experienced with this kind of paint, but I’m looking forward to try it (tasty pics, isn’t it?): Thanks for looking!

  5. When Great War ended, Western front went silent and hell of trenches was over. But in Central and Eastern Europe peace was still far, far away, on the graves of Empires dozens of a new nations emerges and immediately clashed in border conflicts with each other, and with revolutions, counter-revolutions and uprisings. From North Africa to Vladivostok and from Middle East up to Finland people keep fighting. I was really surprised when I found out how many conflict had place immediately after WWI, these days those are mostly forgotten, overshadowed by both World Wars. Masterbox Austin 3rd series is a nice kit of this Great War armoured car, but it have serious problem. Too many interesting camouflages, German Freikorps, Austro-Hungarian, Ukrainian, Bolsheviks, Russian White movements, Finnish... from the other hand, there is no description aside a flag, so I had made some research. Finaaly I decided to go with "Атаман Богаевский" - "Ataman Bogaevskiy" car from 1919, belonging to the the Don Army of Don Republic, also know as Almighty Don Host, created by Don Cossacks. In 1919 it become a part of Armed Forces of South Russia, which also included the Volunteer Army (which was renamed the Caucasian Volunteer Army), the Crimean-Azov Army, the Forces of Northern Caucasus and the Army of Turkestan. Those were White forces during Russian Civil War. It it worth to know, that Imperial Russia had second place in number of armoured car in service, with United Kingdom being first. Photo, according to wikipedia description, is in public domain. I will wrote about symbol and name of this particular car and Austin cars in Russia, but in later posts.
  6. I'm awaiting some bits and pieces to finish my 51st HD Sergeant and in the meantime I've started another small WW1-themed diorama. About a month ago I was at a talk about my home town during WW1. The speaker was an old friend, who I've known for over 30 years. During the talk he mentioned that he had a great-Uncle who had been a Lewis Gunner for most of the War. He survive and lived the rest of his life in, I believe, the Highlands of Scotland. I hadn't heard my friend mention his uncle before but it set me thinking. I remembered that the Master Box British Infantry Somme Battle Period was essentially a Lewis Gun section: http://www.mbltd.info/35146.htm I ordered a set from the Big H and started to think about basing them. I have a small number of 10cmx21cm MDF bases so I decided to use one of these. I then headed to Hobbycraft and picked up the Tamiya Brick Wall set. The idea was to recreate a damaged agricultural or industrial building that the soldiers were using for shelter. I also have a box of wooden coffee stirrers that are good for structural woodwork and floors: 35199125_205357173612265_6739784623594668032_o by John Walker, on Flickr I used the brick wall panels where I could but I also razor-sawed out individual bricks or sets of 2 or 3 as needed to create some interesting shapes. Sawing out the bricks kept the size and shape consistent: 35076764_205358583612124_5484046708637696000_o by John Walker, on Flickr IMG_20180613_144356 by John Walker, on Flickr John
  7. Bundeswehr German Military Present Day 1:35 Master Box Ltd Master Box have seen a market for some well-sculpted, modern mouldings of soldiers for a while now. While WWI and WWII have seen a lot of figure sets recently it seems companies are now catching on with the meed for modern day figures. Master Box have now brought this set out for modern day German Army figures. This set arrives in the de facto standard figure shaped box with a painting of the included figures on the front, and parts breakdown with pictorial instructions on the rear. On opening the end of the box, you're greeted by a re-sealable bag containing one large sprue and one smaller one containing all the parts you'll need to build five figures in fairly relaxed non-combat stances. Contrary to the sprue photos on the back of the box, the styrene is grey, which shows off the contours and captures all the detail that has been included in the kit. Torsos, legs, arms and heads are all separate parts, with webbing also separate for a more realistic in-scale feel, with helmets, weapons and load-out also separate, which gives the modeller some scope for individualising each figure without too much work. The sculpting is first rate, and the sheer detail of each part is stunning, from the smallest pucker in the corner of a bag to belts that cut into the shoulder, plus realistic clothing. Painting shows modern temperate camo, and the dessert camo as worn in the controversial deployment of German troops to Afgahnistan. Conclusion Master Box have a superb range of figures, and this set is both timely and very well done. If you want to add a sense of scale to your modern armour, this set will do just that. A much needed boost for fans of modern German armour. Very highly recommended. Review sample courtesy of
  8. British Infantry – Somme Period, 1916 1:35 Master Box Ltd Master Box have seen a market for some well-sculpted, modern mouldings of WWI soldiers, that will be a must-have to anyone building the rash of newly tooled WWI armour that we are currently blessed with. The old Emhar figures are nice, but limited in stance, so without surgery you'll be in for a lot of work. This set arrives in the de facto standard figure shaped box with a painting of the included figures on the front, and parts breakdown with pictorial instructions on the rear. On opening the end of the box, you're greeted by a re-sealable bag containing one large sprue and one smaller one containing all the parts you'll need to build five figures in fairly relaxed non-combat stances. Contrary to the sprue photos on the back of the box, the styrene is grey, which shows off the contours and captures all the detail that has been included in the kit. All figures are standing, with four standing upright in a pose that suggests they're taking a breather from a trudge somewhere, which could explain the fifth figure, who appears to be giving directions, having one arm outstretched, pointing behind him. He is also dressed as an officer, having a greatcoat and swagger stick, with a pistol on a belt at his waist. The other figures have their fatigues over which are the sleeveless leather jackets that gave some level of weather and wear resistance to their torsos. Some are open, while others are buttoned up, and weapons are slung over shoulders and rested butt-first on the ground. Weapons include a Lewis gun and Lee Enfields with and without bayonets fitted. Various bags and pouches are also included, both for rifle ammo and the dinner-plate style drum mags for the Lewis gun, which one of the soldiers is shown carrying in the instructions. Torsos, legs, arms and heads are all separate parts, with coat-tails also separate for a more realistic in-scale feel, with helmets, weapons and load-out also separate, which gives the modeller some scope for individualising each figure without too much work. The sculpting is first rate, and the sheer detail of each part is stunning, from the smallest pucker in the corner of a bag to belts that cut into the shoulder, plus realistic drape of the clothing. Conclusion Master Box have a superb range of figures, and this set is both timely and very well done. If you want to add a sense of scale to your WWI armour, this set will do just that. Very highly recommended. Review sample courtesy of
  9. Volkssturm, Germany 1944-5 1:35 Master Box As the war continued to go against Germany and the attrition of trained men of fighting age put more pressure on their military, many civilians and veterans of WWI were pressed into service. Men, boys and even women were trained to operate the basic weapons of defence, such as the Kar98 rifle, and the dreaded Panzerfaust that could turn a housewife into a tank destroyer, providing she could get close enough to fire it effectively. The Volkssturm, which means "people's storm" were hastily trained, often by those that had been invalided out of the service, or older soldiers that weren't fit for front-line service anymore. This set contains five figures in injection moulded styrene on one sprue that is held within a standard figure sized box. Included are the following: A moustachioed old soldier with puttees, greatcoat and forage cap, loading a Kar98 rifle, which has the bolt back and a clip of ammo being pressed home. A lady in a fur-trimmed ¾ coat with matching hat, toting a Panzerfaust on her right shoulder in the aiming position. An older soldier in great coat, boots and forage cap explaining the finer points of firing a Panzerfaust. An officer in great coat, boots and holding an instruction manual, with the option of either holding a cigarette in his right hand, or an alternative part that represents an empty sleeve, allowing him to be posed as a former soldier, recalled to duty. A gentleman in a double-breasted rain coat, trilby and brogues, watching a demonstration intently with his hands clasped behind his back. As usual with Master Box, the sculpting is first rate, and all the figures are broken down sensibly to improve detail whilst minimising joint clean-up. All figures have separate legs up to their waists, with the coat tails as separate thin parts that shroud the upper legs realistically, so there are no solid areas when viewed from below. Heads, hats and caps are separate too, as are the arms, and the lady has been sculpted on a frame appropriately smaller than the men in the set, so that she looks distinctly female. The colours, part numbers and construction notes are found on the back of the box, using Vallejo and Lifecolor paint codes as reference. Conclusion A superbly candid scene during the desperate final days of WWII is depicted, needing only a battle scarred backdrop to finish it off. Sympathetically painted, these figures will tell their own story. Highly recommended. Review sample courtesy of
  10. German Paratroopers WWII 1:35 Masterbox via Creative Models The Fallschirmjäger were an elite fighting force who were usually delivered to the battlefield via parachute, and were involved in some of the most daring raids of WWII. They dressed differently than the mainstream military with long camouflaged smocks and narrow brimmed "potty" helmets with a more robust closure system to stand up to the rigors of a parachute drop. The also used some different weapons, with the emphasis on compactness and lightweight, such as the FG42, which was advanced for its time but suffered from muzzle-climb due to its light weight. This figure set contains four figures in varying poses, and each one is broken down into separate legs, torso, arms and heads, plus various equipment and armament choices. The heads are complete, although they lack hair in order to get the helmet to sit snugly upon them, so if you want to leave the helmet off, you'll need to add a little hair, and remove the moulded in chin-straps. Sculpting is first rate, and the joints have been placed to minimise their impact on the detail, running down seamlines wherever possible. A little clean-up will be necessary on the mould seams however, but with a tool such as the Hobby Elements Sanders chucked into your Dremel, this won't take too long. The troopers with three-quarter smocks have their coat-tails moulded into their legs, except for one that has a quadrant moulded separately to depict it flapping during movement. Two figures are posed in the act of walking, with one kneeling and raising his rifle in anticipation of action, while the final figure is in the prone position looking down the sights of his MP40. Poses are naturalistic, and all they need is a ruined street corner to complete a realistic looking diorama. As usual with figure box sets, the instructions are simply painted figures with the part numbers and paint colours pointed out on the back of the box. The part numbers are then shown against a picture of the sprue, which on the box is sand coloured, but inside is a mid grey. The paint call-outs are given in Vallejo and Lifecolor, which are two of the more popular acrylic paints for brush painting, but it's easy to convert using modern web resources such as this one. The smock's camo pattern may cause some a little pause for thought, but with modern washes even an unshaded camo can look realistic. Conclusion Master Box do good figures, and this is a fine example of their craft. Don't let the prospect of having to paint the camo put you off, as this set is too good to miss out on. Highly recommended. Review sample courtesy of

  13. Hi, Here is the finished 1/35 scale diorama of a Post Apocalyptic world infested with Zombies. Kits used include: Mini Art, Meng, Masterbox & Not Yet Dead. Work in progress can be found here, and click here to see the inspiration for this build by theanorak73. Story behind the build... “And the Second Angel poured out his vial; and it became as the blood of a dead man: and every living soul died…” Not long after the end, only a few of us where left, everyone else, they were gone. Or worse, hypnotised and helpless, they turned in days. We have been hiding from these things since everything went to hell. Need to get out of here, and fight back. Most of us are armed and rearing to go, its pay back time. The last few days have been really bad, but we have survived this far, because we are not yet dead! Humanity and had reached its last few humans, living ones at least, the rest had been turned into flesh eating Zombies. No one can remember how it all started but we are damn sure how it will end. With supplies running low groups of survivors make foraging trips. Some encounter only the quite empty streets, while others have to fight to stay alive. One such group, husband, wife and baby have been on the road for a few weeks when they come across another deserted town, or so they think. Fuel; being the main reason for this latest outing, they come across some fuel cans in an alleyway next to a Grocery Market. Whilst the husband checks the contents of the cans, his wife stands with their baby in arms, as look out, when suddenly, out of the shop comes some zombies. To late to get back in the pickup, the wife flees up the staircase at the side of the building, finding her way blocked by a gate, she turns to see her husband fighting off the zombies, armed only with a spade. From up the street is hear the sound of some approaching vehicles. The sound announces the arrival of two women, one on a scooter armed with a cricket bat and a dustbin lid, the other on motorbike armed with a pistol. Quickly assessing the situation, the women engage the zombies. Their timely arrival safes the day, or does it? Cheers Richard
  14. I was tempted to venture into WWI aircraft for the first time, until this caught my eye and the potential for weathering was too much to resist. It'll be OOB. (I have drilled the gun barrels out though...) They have managed to etch the grill with a very realistic 3D weave, I can't wait to shade and dry brush it! After an hour and a half... It goes together well!
