Amazing setup, Jim. The grass is fantastically lifelike!

Thanks all.

I think out here in the benighted colonies we don't use the phrase, but I might be able to get something similar. Maybe isopropyl (or as we call it, "rubbing alcohol" )  would do the trick too.

Tim - what do you mean by "meths" - methanol? It sounds like something illegal

Has anyone used a short soak in vinegar before priming their PE? I've seen this mentioned in a couple of other places. Or is it actually a little destructive?

Ooh, thanks for mentioning the Sd Kfz 260, Dave!

So far as I know it's the first plastic kit by anyone of that vehicle in 1/48. Maybe that's what the text is supposed to mean, but I don't know if that's how I read it.

Someone posted some pics of their Sd Kfz 223 kit on Track48 recently: some photoetched grilles, and choice of rubber or plastic tires.

So noted, Dave!

No, but I realized that Dave's thread was (?) for smaller manufacturers so I thought maybe it was inappropriate to post.

(Takom have released CAD renders of their upcoming Lee and Grant.)

I just realized that the Stynylrez primers (I can never spell that name!) I use say they can be used on metal.

Maybe I'll try to put some on a piece of PE sprue, paint, and see if that works.

Oh no! Get well soon Simon!!

New question:

Do you guys treat the photoetched parts in any way before painting? Do you prime them, or not? Anything special?

In the 1/48 FB forum, some images got posted for some figures in resin or metal that will hopefully be sold via Kickstarter later this year - originally they were going to be released by "Fox Miniatures" about 5 years ago but never saw the light of day. 20 Americans and 20 Germans.  1/48 is kind of a cottage industry...

That is looking great, Lee!

Was a small arms truck one with racks etc for small arms, or what exactly?

I really need to stop going into the bookstore next to the model shop  But it looks like a good reference with very nice art.  It's been a hot but cloudy day, and I just got home before the thunder started.

The tracks look pretty good for straight out of the box.

I had no idea how complicated the suspension is for the 38t. I wonder how Tamiya modelled it at 1/48 (might open my box just to take a look.)

I'm sure you'll get along just fine with the tracks!

Those are going to be BIG models, Christos! Hope you have the storage space for them

It's like the joke about a sculpture...

"How do you make a model of an airplane?"

"Take a piece of plastic and carve away anything that doesn't look like an airplane"

Good stuff! yes

Has anyone here done a dio of a tank being constructed?

Thread: Latest Acquisitions 2017
14/06/2017 15:54:20

That's great, Dave! Any plans to build it soon?

A kind modeller on Track48 who has to reduce his modelling space has sent me some interesting odds and ends in 1/48. Some paper (?) flowers made in Japan, a Kettenkrad without instructions, a set of lampposts and fences, and one of German fuel drums and jerry cans. I'm most pleased to get a resin very early Sherman turret which I think would be right for a tank at El Alamein.
