Thread: Best 1/35 le FH 18/40 kit?
30/03/2017 14:25:26

Hi Rudi,

The Dragon one is good, there are one or two comments in the thread associated with the review you refer to, from when I built it. The other one is by AFV Club which I haven't built but their artillery kits are always good so you could go for either one. thumbs up

Thread: 2017 Small Scale Group Build (SSGB17)
27/03/2017 22:38:15

John, Chris,

Thank you. They are simple models to build but look just right to my eye when built. thumbs up The CMP FAT in the first shot is also in 'Mickey Mouse Ear' pattern, though it is not brilliantly shown on this photo unfortunately. ​ There are additional photos if you follow the links so you might see it better p

Thread: Latest Acquisitions 2017

The event is very much a local one. One of my friends brings along his WOT1 and WOT 2 so something for people to see. Two or three times during the day I give talks on the different pieces on show, and can usually get a good little crowd gathering, so it is fun to do and share the interest. wink 2

Chris, Tim

You are right, putty and styrene won't help much with this one, but one of the things that got me started was to have actual references for things like colour, wear and so on, including on the box in this case plus the leather harness for man packing the mortar and the smaller pouch is for the sights. thumbs up

Hi Si,

I am just very fortunate that Una is so tolerant of my collection, that's all there is to it, smile p I will have it out on display at a 'Vintage Day' on Saturday 3 June at our local Craft Village, along with one or two other bits and pieces, the 4th year I have been invited there to put on an exhibit. thumbs up

A new bit of kit for me, and in 1:1 scale. This is a Spanish M51 60mm mortar, something a bit different. smile pwink 2

Thread: 2017 Small Scale Group Build (SSGB17)
27/03/2017 19:39:34

Well, so much going on in the group and great to see so many small scale models come along so well.teeth 2

Just to say I have been getting on with a few bits and piece, and among them are these new kits from Plastic Soldier Company. In 1/72 there are both CMP artillery tractor and 25 pounder (2 kits in the box),

PSC 1/72 CMP FAT and 25 pounders

also the Morris tractor and 25 pounder (again 2 in the box),

PSC 1/72 Morris FAT and 25 pounders

then CMP 15cwt Trucks also in 1/72 (3 in the box)...

PSC 1/72 CMP 15cwt trucks

and in smaller 15mm, the CMP 15cwt but with 5 in the box...

PSC 15mm CMP 15cwt trucks

They are all awaiting transfers, though sadly PSC are out of stock on the appropriate sets at the moment, so waiting for them to get some reprints p Nice builds and fun to have multiple kits in each box.

Hi Allen,

I wish I'd thought of it earlier, but it came to mind from the old Laurel and Hardy films, but clearly 'that's another fine mesh you've gotten yourself into'. teeth 2
