That looks great, Nick! Well done!
|Thread: Founding of the SAS|
I wonder if it'll show over here...!
I saw a British documentary about commando and similar forces on Netflix last year. I don't suppose anyone would know the original title? There were four episodes - I remember one focused on Norway, one on the LDRG and SAS in North Africa, one on St Nazaire. They had some veterans in the show, and there was a bit in the Norway episode about one of them returning he'd taken from a house during the raid. edit: never mind, I think it was just called "Commando".

|Thread: 2017 Small Scale Group Build (SSGB17)|
Very little time in front of the modelling tray lately I'm afraid. But I finally finished scratching together the suspension parts on my Valentine and I'm done with this one:
|Thread: SSGB17 STUG FEST|
Wow, that's a pretty epic snowplow :D What a great choice!
|Thread: How I paint leather SBS|
|Wow. That is fantastic! Thank you for sharing... I'll have to keep it in mind for the next leather I have to paint.|
|Thread: Some historical articles on my blog|
That's kind of you, thanks Jim!
Someone on missing-lynx informed me of photo archives at our War Museum, some of which he helped organize. I hope to visit there next time (in a couple of months) and have something to show of more specific interest to us modellers.
Sorry I haven't been doing much modelling lately... I really am hoping to finish my Valentine and get on with the next one soon!
I was at the Canadian archives on Friday doing paint colour research and I also took photos of some articles which might be of interest to some.
I have posted:
Still to come:

|Thread: New here...|
You have more modelling experience than I do! Hope you'll share some of your work with us.
|Thread: Armourfast Valentine 1/72 #1 (SSGB17)|
Thanks Jimbo! I am happy to have just had the impulse to improve the model and to do some work on it. I can see now that there is a lot of additional detail one could add to these Armourfast models if one was so inclined - handles just to begin with.
Say, does anyone know, is the black of the rubber of the tyres on the wheels in the Bovington pic, the original colour, or do you suppose they are painted?
The reason I ask is I have been using Vallejo's "Dark Rubber" paint for tyres, but maybe I should just use black, or mix it with black.
Well I'm not done yet. Although I'm working so slowly you might think nothing is happening!
Here you can see behind the forward wheels a completed bunch of suspension parts. The rear set just has the one piece I put in to represent that part of the suspension. It's something anyway. The part that represents the main fork is not really a patch on what it SHOULD look like. The second picture I'm posting is a very nice photo of the suspension on the tank at Bovington. So the main fork should be sort of a horizontal cone stretched a bit vertically (cross section is an oval rather than a circle) but I don't have the bits or patience to make that yet.
Hm. I didn't realize the upper rollers had rubber tyres to them as well. I'll have to fix that too.
|Thread: Bovington Model Show 2017|
That's great, thanks for sharing!
I hope the show was a success. It does seem like an appropriate place for one
|Thread: For the Motherland!|
Alistair, that will be a really great looking model!
Are you going to get an aftermarket 100mm barrel for it?
|Thread: Shenanigans16: Tamiya's Old Matilda II|
I am sure that even with any kit inaccuracies, your overall scene will end up looking great, Peter Following along!
That's quite the detailed figure set!
|Thread: Are these supposed to be the same scale ????|
Peter has a good point about people of different sizes. I was reading about some Canadian soldier at Ortona who was pretty small. (5'?) And on the German side, in one unit the men were split into companies based on their height!
I have read that Tamiya's 1/48 figures are generally smaller than they should be. Don't know about 1/35.

|Thread: Liquid chrome|
That looks good! Any chance of a picture of the mirror on your Kubelwagon with the chrome applied?
|Thread: Haynes Tiger manual|
Save money to spend on more books!
If I didn't have a stack of 6 or 8 books to read already...
