  3. This Heller kit is a fine detailed model with only minor disadvantages. Most of the parts are very crisp with plenty range of additional detailing. Most notably are several sinkholes and a wrong seat mount for the french version. The plastic is somewhat soft and needs a carefully handling if sanding is necessary. Both fronttyres with minor deformations. Used colours are of a broad range of different brands and mixed with other colours to achieve the worn effect. ( So it is nearly impossible to give you a useable reference of colour-numbers) : Tamiya Red, White, Darkbrown Gunze Grey, White, Bluegrey Windsor Oils Black, White, Grey, Ochre, Burnt Umber Pigments Pigeon Grey, Ochre, Black, dif. Rust pigments Buffing powder (C1 Metalizer) Detail painting with several Valejo paints Chipping mostly with Valejo Black Grey and small sponge parts Accessories: Hoodpins (Scale Production) Screw Heads (Aber) Toggle Switch (Top Studio) Pipe Clamps (Top Studio) Tools (Hasegawa Garage Kit) Padlock (Hauler) Extra details: Toolbox scratchbuild Headlights drilled out Battery mount scratchbuild 5 ft. finger bar mower scratchbuilt Seat mount scratch built Hood was milled out to scale thicknes As many other forum members declared, I wish more Utility vehicles in 1:24 too.
  4. Hello ! I start building for myself unusual, since the first time I will work with resin The model is the first kit on the 35th scale of the manufacturer RTModels To begin with - an overview of the contents of the box
  5. Modern RAF/RN Tractor 1:72 Eduard Although it doesn't say it on the box, this kit depicts the Schopf F59 aircraft tow tractor. Schopf is a German company, formed in the late 1940s to produce vehicles for the mining industry. They soon branched out into the aviation industry, and is now a leading producer of tow tractors, loading vehicles and stair lifts. The F59 is a four-wheel drive tractor designed to for towing for civil and military aircraft with a maximum take-off weight of 70 tons. This is another resin kit from VideoAviation, an Italian firm who specialise in military aviation ground equipment for use in dioramas. I believe they started out producing 1:48 scale kits, but happily they have now decided to do the decent thing and scale down many of their subjects to the gentleman's scale. The kit arrives in a small, sturdy white box with a picture of the kit on the top. Inside there are 23 resin parts 27 photo etched parts, decals, pre-cut transparent parts and some plastic rod. This is the second Videoaviation that I've received for review, and very impressive it is too. The resin parts have been beautifully produced. Casting is extremely crisp and sharp and I couldn't find any bubbles anywhere. The casting blocks have been thoughtfully placed, so clean-up shouldn't be too onerous. The usual warnings about resin dust apply when preparing the parts ready for assembly, and I would recommend giving the parts a good clean in warm soapy water to remove any residual mould release agent. Construction should be fairly straightforward as the chassis and cab are cast in one piece. To this platform, details such as the steering wheel, seat backs and roof have to be added. The towing equipment is supplied for fitting to the rear of the tractor, while small details are covered by resin (lights) or photo etched (windscreen wipers, door mirrors) parts. I'm not usually a massive fan of plastic sheet for glazing (mainly due to my own limitations as a modeller, I admit) but the pre-cut versions supplied with this kit look to be much easier to use. The towing bar is a mini kit in itself. The bar is cast as a single, solid part to which the u-shaped axle, wheels and the towing linkage are added. The latter is a three-prong fitting with photo etched parts and a piece of the supplied styrene rod required to finish it off. The instructions tell you to paint the vehicle and the towbar in overall yellow (Humbrol 99). Decals are provided for RAF and Royal Navy versions. Conclusion This is a cracking little model that shouldn't take too long to build and paint, but which will add real interest and depth to a diorama. You could even use it for a civilian diorama, should you have access to an appropriate kit in that scale. Highly recommended. Review sample courtesy of

  8. Hello, here is another project that started with the pictures found in the internet. Even the tires had to be built from the zero. The scale is 1:25 The project is half made in resin, although my models are mainly built in tinplate In this picture the tires are from the old project that I made years ago. In this picture the tires are from the new project that I made this month.
  9. Hi All, not sure whether this should be here or military vehicles, probably both.... Started my Miniart D7, and whilst having a break from the minute engine detail parts, had a little bash at the tracks. Have been struggling to get the microscopic pieces off the sprues in one piece, used sprue cutters which caused a lot of the small pieces to snap, requiring repair before even getting onto the model, and reverted to a mini saw but that really hasn't proved any better. Any ideas on removing these tiny pieces in one piece? Back to the tracks, again, similar problem, microscopic fragile parts, even one of the shoes snapped in half on me. I've had a look around the net, but haven't come across any AM tracks - anybody had more success or know of a manufacturer? Thanks
  10. STZ-5 Soviet Artillery Tractor Vulcan Models 1/35 I built this a couple of years ago and it was a really nice little kit with some neat touches like metal coil springs for the suspension. The tarp hanging on the side was made from tissue soaked in watered down PVA. It was a bit of a cover-up job to hide a huge thumb print on the side of the cargo bed from some spilt plastic weld. Hope you enjoy the shots Thanks for looking Andy
  11. David Brown Aircraft Towing Tractor. Used by the RAF during WWII and into the 1960's. Pics thanks to Bootneck Mike.
  12. Hi all, Well I'm not a vehicle modeller by any stretch of the imagination so I'm in unfamiliar territory this side of BM. Anyway, I thought I'd relax by scratching a tractor for a future diorama. Parts of this came from Airfix's Matador but the majority is scratch. Ben.
  13. Whilst getting a bit bogged down with my Varyag ship build I thought I'd have a break and build something a little different and do a sort of build review at the same time. So this kit will be built with the aid of the ET Models etch set, reviewed HERE Staturory box top pic. The individual tracks are made up of 34 links per side and three parts per link. They actually went together better than I had expected. Start on the suspension parts and wheels. The chassis of the tractor along with the radiator front which has been cut out and will be replaced with the etched parts shown in the photo.
