The BANG you just heard is my jaw hitting the floor. Fantastic idea!!! I will definitely be buying this issue from my local shop.

jimbo that looks fantastic! I lost track of your build and will go look at more pictures. I bet my dad (a cross country skiier) would like it too.

Welcome Ant!

I've heard good things about those modern 1:48 kits. Wish you the best with it

The "whoosh" sound you just heard was me going over to Facebook to sign up to the group.

Hi Jimbo,

Maybe I'll try that! I can easily dig up another square of styrene sheet to test with.

I did have this wacky idea of trying to draw the lines using chalk and thread, to take the line over the side of the hull. Proooobably not really worth it :D

This morning I was looking at the picture of this Valentine training vehicle and thinking I want to try to replicate at least the look of the sand skirts here. You can see streaking below the exhaust, and it's interesting how most of the wear on the skirts is above the middle. Maybe from the crew scrambling up on top?

It looks like bare unrusted metal to me but I don't know.   (Click on the image to view it full size)

Thanks guys!

Actually between looking at this and looking at the Valentine walkaround I got yesterday, I see more and more how much detail is MISSING. On the other hand I think I'm just too clumsy for scratch building at this scale. For instance the driver and turret cupola spots only show the guards around the back of them, not the actual part that would be raised if the cupola was in use. But... making that would be so tiny! I think I'll try to add some stuff to my 1/48 Matilda when I go back to that, instead.

Very nice Richard, that's a fresh take on the Churchill

Thread: (SSGB?) Armourfast Valentine in Caunter scheme

Well, I tried to paint this thing in Caunter and swiftly gave up. Did not realize paint would go through the tape... did not deal properly with paint making a raised edge along the tape... I'll leave that for another day and just do this one in Light Stone and try to practice weathering based on photos.

Finally put a couple of my suspension bits on the tracks so I can paint them:

Kind of hard to see a difference right now!  But the big springs can't go on until the tracks are attached to the hull.

I went to the model shop yesterday for a couple of little things and OH NO THE MILITARIA STORE NEXt DOOR GOT ME AGAIN!

Most of these were inexpensive ($10 for the walkaround, the model shop wanted $25) but then... I really shouldn't have bought the desert war book oh dear...

Welcome!!

Thread: This great forum

Hear hear!

I know I haven't posted much lately but it is extraordinarily remarkable how friendly this forum is.

 

P.S. Chas, I'm sure that your work is better by far than mine, and I also think that if you just posted a caveat about markings being "what if" then everyone would understand that and not take offense.

Hi all!

Fernando - that's kind of a nice kit, "diorama in a box", eh? I know some of their tanks came with little bases but you get the MT, the bike, and the AT gun in that? Not bad!

Andy - beautiful backfire!

Andy Smith - you're mad That's the u-boat, right?

I'm plugging away ineptly at my second Valentine... base coat is almost done.

Thread: Bandai 1/48 Imperial AT-ST

*wookie roar!*

Very nice Hermann. Is this an old kit or a new one? I love that it's 1/48... technically you could put tanks and trains up against it and have them be in-scale.

You said "to be completed" list - are you planning to work on this more?

I don't think I can say anything which John didn't just say, more eloquently. Are you imagining bedding laid down for the night?

Sounds great, John!

What time of year are you thinking this will be? Is it Stalingrad in the grip of winter or sometime warmer?
