Modelling Projects / Warrior APC
« on: August 18, 2021, 07:51:00 PM »
This is the Academy 1/35 scale warrior boxed as Iraq 2003. I believe that this is the updated version from an earlier Academy boxing. I started it in April last year got a bit fed up with it, for no real reason, and put it away, got it out again last week with the aim to finish it soon. I bought a set of Star decals for a Balkan version so when finished it will be dirty white.
I'm trying to get some unfinished ones done.

Modelling Projects / Hobbyboss Landrover WMIK

This is the 1/35 scale Hobbyboss Landrover WMIK.
I made the original kit straight out of the box sometime early 2019. it looked a bit basic so a month or so back I got it out and started to updated it, I used some black dog and Accurate Armour bits. The figures are from a Master Box set. It looks a lot better now.
Usual paints, Tamiya, Hataka and Ammo Mig.
Photo taken with my phone.

Modelling Projects / Cromwell ARV
« on: February 16, 2021, 02:48:08 PM »
Started this Cromwell Armoured Recovery Vehicle a couple of days ago. 1/35 Tamiya Cromwell as the donor kit with Accurate Armour conversion kit. the inside is scratch built after finding a couple of this on the internet.
I've got a few other Cromwell ideas so might end up with a squadron of Cromwell's.

Modelling Projects / Cromwell DW
« on: January 04, 2021, 08:15:11 PM »
I'm continuing the Cromwell saga by converting the Tamiya kit into a Cromwell DW using Accurate Armour sets.
I've already cut the hull top to convert the drivers area into a Vauxhall hatch and the engine deck to turn it into a D model, most of the rivets have to be removed to turn it into a welded hull type, hence the DW. I will post a picture when all of the converting has taken place.

Modelling Projects / Panzer II
« on: December 10, 2020, 11:40:44 AM »
This the 1/35 scale Tamiya Panzer II. I started it in February-March of this year ready for the May club night but as we went into lockdown it was put to one side.
It's out of the box, a good kit finished with a MiniArt crew figure.

Modelling Projects / dingo Scout Car
« on: November 16, 2020, 08:11:49 PM »
This is going to be my next project whilst waiting for some bits to arrive to finish the Cromwell, it's a MiniArt Dingo I bought at a model show last year.
If you've forgotten model shows are where you get up in the middle of the night drive to the location set up walk about have a chat spend lots of cash pack up drive home wait for the next one and repeat, those where the days.

General Discussion / Bling Bling

Hi all
I found these a while back at Boyes, I can't remember how much they cost but it could only have been a couple of pounds.
I found they work well on 1/35 scale armoured vehicles as searchlight/headlight lenses but sure they would have other uses.

Modelling Projects / Tamiya 1/48 F-16C
« on: October 15, 2020, 11:49:28 AM »
Started this Tamiya F-16C sometime ago, I've decided to carry on with the project.
Decals will be Eagle Strike productions for an Aviano based aircraft in 2000. Lets see how far I get.

Modelling Projects / Cromwell
« on: October 05, 2020, 08:03:50 PM »
As promised this is my new project, once again it's Tamiya's 1/35 scale Cromwell with Accurate Armour conversion set to turn it into a F type hull, which requires various parts of the upper hull to cut and replaced with resin parts. I will post the turret later. This is it so far.

Modelling Projects / Tamiya Cromwell
« on: October 04, 2020, 11:35:54 AM »
Finished this a couple of days ago. It's the Tamiya 1/35 scale Cromwell MK IV, this one is slightly different in that it has an Accurate Armour split drivers hatch which allowed the driver to escape when the turret was traversing. it's in the marking of the 8th Hussars which was the armoured recce unit of 7 armoured division.
painted in my usual way with Tamiya, Hataka and ammo mig paints.
I have another two Cromwell and an ARV to do.

This is my latest kit. It's Tamiya's Centaur Close Support (CS) MK IV, straight out of the box except for the gear on the back, the water can holder and spare track on front all come from various sources. Painted as normal with Humbrol, Tamiya and Hataka paints. It's mark as Centaur of the Royal Marine Armoured Support Group (RMASG).
