Any comments welcome. I know I have gone a bit mad on the chipping but I find it relaxing and it reminds me of my first car, a "T" reg Fiat!

Cheers

Hi Sunray,

Welcome to Britmodeller. You really have done some nice work there on those Tanks. I particularly like the chipping and damage on the Heng Long Tiger 1.It looks like you have been following the Mig/AK DVD's?

I look forward to seeing more of your work.

You are spot on about the DVD's Nige. I first saw the Vallejo one which got me back into modelling but the memory's of my rusting battle damaged Fiat did help.

Thanks for the kind comments. The Tiger and the Bulldog only cost around £30 each off ebay as the were second hand and the Panther actually belongs to my youngest son who's 11. They are full radio control when you buy them. I stripped then down completely and upgraded the electrics, gears, etc which isn't that hard even for me. I have got photos of the complete builds or upgrades depending how you look at it for the Tiger and Bulldog and I am still doing the Panther. If anyone whats them I will post them up. I have got another Tiger and Bulldog to do and also a Stug III and Panzer IV both of which are still in the boxes. I will get round to doing them but at the minute I am have fun rediscovering Airfix. If anyone wants any info please let me know?

This is the kind of stunning work and attention to detail that makes me scared to wander into some of these posts. :crying:

I. Feel. So. Inadequate. :lol:

I've been away for a while so only just seen this -this is really inspirational !

Sunray, in one of your replies, you'd said:

"I have got photos of the complete builds or upgrades depending how you look at it for the Tiger and Bulldog and I am still doing the Panther. If anyone whats them I will post them up."

-YES PLEASE! -I'd love to see how you've built-up that effect.

Mig/AK DVDs are a new one on me, but I'll have to look them up too...

I've been away from modelling for too long now -still looking to find the time to get back into it -but seeing stuff like this is really inspiring (like soo many of the huge talents who visit this site)

thanks for posting these -you've brightened my day!

Very nice work - I'd also love to see some of the progress pics, especially in the build phase, as I've got a couple to do myself :)

Thanks for the comments. I have started to post the builds in the forum "Work in Progress" so please let me know what you think.

Already commented on the Tiger, and yes the same comment applies for the M41 and the Panther. Especially like the M41, to me the most aesthetically pleasing tank ever... But then "beauty in the eye...." etc.
