Thread: Mk IV Top Tower Supply Tank & Sledge (PL)

Peter,

Please keep on with this build. As Mike has said, both you and Neo are teaching us lessons. You are using the Emhar model which some people have rubbished. You are showing what can be produced from a simple model with the addition of plastic. Neo is using the Takom model. It would be interesting to see how they compare. I've already built the Emhar models and have the Takom models to build, when I find time and space!

Neo,

No one could ever achieve the standard you have. Every one of your models has been to a museum standard.

Thread: What I did to chase off the big black dog
04/04/2018 17:03:02

Tim,

I know the feeling. I've learnt to close my eyes and focus on a Black Newfoundland dog. They are the gentlest dogs in the world. I used to have an A4 photo of one on a notice board in front of my desk at work. Concentrating on the photo allowed my cares and worries to disappear.

Remember, too, that many well known and very successful people have coped with Black Dog. You may feel you are alone, but you're not.

Pete,

I'm going to watch this with interest. I've built a number of the Emhar kits straight from the box. I've also carried out a number of conversions including this one.

Chas

As an aside, everyone. Please bear in mind, when you post comments concerning afflictions, that some of us may have them. I have a slight speech impediment. I keep it under control most of the time. However, there are times when the stutter gets the best of me. It can take anything up to 15 to 20 minutes to bring it under control. It doesn't help seeing remarks made about it, even if they are in jest! Thanks.

Neo,

What more can I say about your models? You are in a class of your very own. Your standards are just incredible and inspire many on this site.

Please keep the models coming. Each time I see a posting from you I know that I will not be disappointed.

Very well done, indeed.

Neo,

The attention to detail is just incredible.

Pete,

This is modelling at its' very best. You have turned a cheap model into a museum masterpiece. I'm looking forward to seeing the finished model.

Thread: 1/35 Emhar A7V
17/03/2018 06:31:22

Pete,

No problem. We all ask questions on this site. If Emhar had released it in 1/35 it would have been a basic model. I'm certain someone would have posted a build of it on here and super detailed it.

Peter,

To the best of my knowledge, Emhar have only ever produced it in 1/76 scale. Other companies have produced A7V models, but these go back 30 plus years. I regret, I cannot recall the names of the companies.

Peter,

This is superb. You've shown what can be done to a relatively cheap and simple model.

Thread: So who else is 'snowed in'?
27/02/2018 17:27:16

Living in London has many advantages. The buses run on some routes throughout the night. There was no snow when I caught the bus at 4.00am. I have found that the trains from Brentwood did not start running into London Liverpool Street until around 7.30am. I feel sorry for the regular bus users who had extra commuters at their stop this morning.

There has been snow falling throughout the day in London. I'm prepared for it. No panic buying as I always have tinned soup in stock. If I can't get bread, there are cream crackers and crisp breads to eat, instead.

My copy arrived today. I just need to find time to unwrap it and then read it.

Martyn,

Another interesting magazine. Roll on next week, provided the postman can cope with the predicted snow!

Thread: WW1 Mk 1 "Tadpole" (PL)

Pete,

It's a whole lot better than mine.

Pete,

Alas, I don't have any photo's. However, feel free to make use of my ideas.

Chas

Pete,

I've built this already. However, I've added a few extras.

1) I made the base plate for the mortar bigger. This was to allow for the crew.

2) I added a back plate in order that neither the crew nor their kit would fall off.

3) Above the rear door, I added a periscope in order that the crew could find their target.

I know this vehicle never saw operational service. However, this means that any modification to the model is pure speculation.

Andy,

I know the feeling. When I joined the Service, I was one of the youngsters in my Office. Now, I'm the oldest member of staff in my Station. I'm also one of the longest serving having transferred into it in 1996. What frightens me is when I hear youngsters talking of incidents they've read about in History Books. These are incidents I can recall from my youth!

By the way. I'm older than you!

Just a quick reminder that the On Track Show takes place this coming Saturday, 24th February, in the Leas Cliff Hall in Folkestone.

I'm keen to see what Giesber Models will have in 1/76 scale.
