Swedish, Carden Lloyd Mk.V Tankette

This is a 1/72 3D-printed kit, that I purchased via Shapeways.  It's a simple kit with only two parts, but I was able to supplement this slightly by adding some additional details.

Sweden operated two Carden Lloyd Tankettes during the 1930s, both of which now reside in the Arsenalen museum.

My build thread is here, if you would like to see more.

Here's the WiP...



This was a very fun little kit and if people sing any praises regarding my skill and craft, rest assured this came about more because the kit was so well designed that skill and craft came naturally.  If that makes sense.  I am trying to be humble.  Better yet: Great little kit.  Beautifully engineered.  Made building easy.  I think I might have solved my airbrush problems too.  We'll see in the next round.  This kit has some painfully small parts, but a sharp hobby knife and patience won the day.  I present my first for this fine GB...I should have attached the tools before painting, but oh well.  Next time.

Eino and Väinö are at it again, trying to figure out which way to point their German FLAK 38.  "No, no, no...over there, by the airbrush, not the paint rack!"












See you all in 2022!  Merry Christmas, or as we say here in Greece...Καλά Χριστούγενα!

Hi all, here's my build of the classic Italeri kit of the Scania 142M and trailer. These are originally dropsides, but I scratch built a flat bed for both truck and trailer. Also storage boxes for the truck. Added to that, I built the Kitformservices (KFS) truck crane to go on the truck. This is really an excellent little kit containing resin, white metal, aluminium, brass, PE and styrene parts, a lot of which you have to cut to size yourself which makes building it a lot of fun. 


Truck badges are PE from Czech Truck Model. Finally, I replaced the generic Italeri hubs and rims with KFS ones which look way better. I did use the Italeri rims on the trailer but drilled these out to take the KFS hubs. 


Photographing this thing was a bit of a challenge, it's huge! The truck measures 37 centimeters and the trailer adds another 34. I have a couple of "barn" backdrops but they're too small to be able to photograph the whole truck in front of it. But I was still able to get some decent shots. Right now it's sitting safely in my cabinet where it's taking up a whole shelf. 


Build thread here: 


 I found it hard to select the photo's which show the finished project best, but I'll start with the crane which surely deserves a separate mention. 




The trailer. 




And the 142 itself.






And here the final assembly, en route to another job. 




Full album here in case you'd like to see more! This was a really nice project and it came out pretty much exactly like I wanted it to! Thanks for all the comments along the way.


Hosts, thanks for another great Nordic GB and I'll be there for round 3 🙂

'Morning all. Here are two vikings just ashore and making their way through the dunes to Scarborough.


Both FeR resin figures, albeit by diferent sculptors. They are mostly painted in oils over enamel base colours and there are a few bits that are still awaiting the oils. Some acrylics on shields, and the metal colour. Thanks for encouragement and helpful advice/infornation. Thanks for the groupbuild.

Lombard RAC Rally 1981

Italeri 1.24


This is my build of Italeri's 1/24 Escort Mk.2, by no means a shake'n'bake kit but with some careful clean up it makes a nice model. Future plans are to replace the wheels/tyres to replace the slicks provided in the kit which have been fixed in place with PVA for the present.
