Apologies for not responding sooner but in my defense my health has been playing up,managed to get that sorted and then a couple of weeks ago I was rear ended while stopped at traffic lights and our car was written off (not Happy) but at least unhurt apart from a few bruises.

David Glad you liked it.

Daniel I had no idea the latest issue I could find here (Gold Coast Australia) was the August Issue apparently we run about 3 mths. behind. thank you for the heads up.

Hi Jim,

Absolutely brilliant it would be right at home in any display, definitely worth all the effort.

I too am firmly in the no camp. Its nice to be able to finish and show a build without having the added pressure of it being judged, its what makes this modelling community so good.


Totally agree with Mick's feelings on this, it can only lead to trouble, this community is great as is.

Hi Michael,

I'm very late to the party, another great build I have missed till now.

Just had a read through from the start, very impressive and very well executed., now bookmarked.

I would like to thank everyone for the overwhelming response to this build.

It has been a bit of an up and down ride during the build, but very enjoyable and in the end rewarding time.

Not sure what I will try next time but I really enjoyed the scratch building side.

Regards to all Keith.

Thread: Tamiya 1/48 Panzer IV Ausf H with Zimmerit
07/10/2017 00:19:40

Hi Bill they're coming along nicely.

I was wondering what the metal cylinders were, Peter's post answered that, the extra weight would make them sit better.

good luck with the Zimmerit and the work bench looks good, wish I could keep mine tidy, I'm a very messy worker.

First thanks again for all the support.thumbs up

John, Yes the Lilly pad look just did not suit for what I wanted.

Hooch, I think it may have been a reaction to the paint I don't think it was moisture as it's been dry as a bone here lately.

Joe, Thanks I went with recoloring.

Steven, Thanks but it almost ended in disaster.

Steve, Thanks you I finally got it sorted.

I think I will call it finished apart from the glass case a name plate and a couple of photos on the end of the dio.

I started to re do the water by adding another layer with a little colour mixed through and miscalculated the amount of catalyst needed and after a couple of days it still had not cured at that point it was almost binned, In a desperate move I sprayed catalyst over the top of the resin, luckily it didn't affect the paint.

Ahhh, it caused the top to cure very fast and rippled the resin quite badly, but it did cure the rest, the only thing to do was pour another layer clear this time, then I had to add more stones to the river bed to show through the water., In the end it turned out the way I had intended to start with (thanks to the modeling godsface 14).

The ripples in the second layer can still be seen under the top layer.(lucky break).

Hi Alistair.

The figures and heads are looking great.

I notice you are using the water mixable oils do you find them any better than normal oils?

Hi Greg

Hope your wife's health improves soon.

Your build is coming along great with something new every time I look in, and now a boat as well.

Look forward to the next update.

Hi Robert .

The cobble road, and path ways look good, shame about not getting to the end of the road, but a bit of rubble should sort that out without any worries,

I usually mix some white glue into the plaster as it seems to make the plaster adhere to the surface a little better when it dries. Like the idea of brush ends for the cobble mould.

how does the corrugated cardboard work as a base?

keep it coming

Hi bobby

Don't give up on it, it's coming along great, and I'm sure you will be all the more satisfied when finished.

I take it the weights around your neck are to stop you sleep walking face 20

hope the sleep apnea keeps continues to improve.thumbs up
