Thanks John, it's just for fun, easy to assemble and though no transfers, self-adhesive stickers instead. thumbs up

I had a couple of new ones arrive this week. A Vietnam era 1/32 A-iJ Skyraider from Zoukei-Mura, which is a stunning kit, packed with detail.star

The other is a recent Trumpeter release, their 1/35 SA-13 Gopher. Again, lots of detail but having got it, not sure when I will build it, simply thanks to finding 111 individual track links for each track run and each track link has the two guide teeth to be fitted to each link - so making the tracks alone means 666 pieces! smile o

Hi Bob,

Happy birthday first of all. cakebeerthumbs up

That's an impressive present from your mum, I guess it proves mum's never want their children to grow up wink 2​ and I am sure there must be a comment about 'size' in there somewhere but I'll leave that thought for now. smile

Best of luck for what will be a huge build (hope your garage is big enough to park it next to the car when builtsmile p)

Thanks Dave. For a relatively rare beastie, there is a surviving example that used to be at the Aberdeen Proving Grounds in Maryland, but is now I understand at Fort Sill, Oklahoma, with the US Anti Aircraft Artillery Museum collection. thumbs up

Si, Thanks for your comments too. Yes, the Modelcollect range has some really nice kits in, well worth adding to 'that' list.wink 2

I have always had a soft spot for artillery models, and this one is not the big 1/35 Takom kit, but a recent 1/72 release from Modelcollect. Builds nicely, just with a base coat of colour on it so far..smile p

Nice to see some of the new kits coming from Modelcollect which fill in some gaps in a collection. thumbs up

Well, spurred on by getting the Puma done, I now have 3 more that have crossed the finishing line for now. I'm calling them done though I do plan to add crew figures when I can find where I've put them...embarrassed

Paint colour is Lifecolor IDF Sandgrey 2 and additional weathering uses Golan Earth (on 2) and Lebanon Sand (on 1) from the Lifecolor IDF set.

There is the Nagmachon Early...

Hi Robert,

There are two ways you can post pictures in the forum, the explanation of both are in the Basics for Beginners section.

To use an Album here on site and include them in a post see here.

To post using something like photobucket, then see here.

Hope that helps thumbs up

Hi Graeme,

As ever, too many on the bench part done than I care to admit to, but a bit of fun in progress at the moment, the Meng Toon kit of the Tiger 1, a caricature like the many aircraft caricatures out there...smile p
