Thanks Dave,

I've not tried the larger scale kit, but Trumpeter have done a neat job with it in the smaller scale, and the single piece track units make it a quick and easy build. Your larger scale version of it turned out really nicely. thumbs up

Another Trumpeter small scale kit got my attention recently and this has built very quickly, so a quick coat of basic green already applied. Just transfers and weathering to p

Hi Steve,

Thank you. And I agree, so good to see some excellent new small scale models being released. As for this one, I have got the basic paint on now so updated it currently looks like this...


(more pics here)

The other good news is that T-Model have just announced a set of Modern US Military Equipment as an accessory set that will be ideal to go with this. News/detail is here)

Lot's to catch up on, and loads going on for this group which is nice to see thumbs up
Andy, your LAV-AD is coming along nicely, very neat.
Peter, the Clarence Battery looks excellent. Shame about the warping of the base but the scene itself is super.
Graeme, the extra etch detailing on the Crusader is effective, I look forward to seeing the finished build.
Andy S, The FLak 43, along with the simple base has turned out very nicely, and an effective use of the picture frame for the base too.
Carl, I do like the look of that 88.
Ron, a good interesting choice for the U-Boat conning tower, I am sure this will be a fascinating build.
Alan, Neat progress on the Mobelwagen.
Fernando, the finish on your Patriot vehicles is excellent, not sure mine will be anywhere near as good. The camo sceme has worked really well. The HEMTT is a very neat build as well.
Paul, the work you have put into the Rhine Crossing diorama is a delight to see, and is an inspiration to what can be done with 1/87 scale models.
Mike, your Ostwind is coming along a treat.

Just to update my build of Trumpeter's 1/72 SA-6, this is now painted and transfers applied, only some light weathering still to be done.

Thanks for commenting. thumbs up The smaller scale does have the distinct advantage of needing less storage space. wink 2

Hi John,

Thank you. I rather like these recent releases from Trumpeter and am pleased to see them doing some more small scale kits. thumbs up

Trumpeter recently added two more small scale models to this range, with both Early and Late versions of the BTR-70 APC. Just minor differences in detail between them, but they build easily enough. I have got them both to the stage of painted and transfers applied, just some weathering needed to finish them off.

Thread: M1A2 SEP TUSK 2 and M1114 HMMWV in 1/72...
09/06/2017 06:43:14

Hi Simon,

Thanks. Yes, all the extra fittings make for a very different look to the Abrams and the kit does go together nicely. thumbs up

The M1114 is a fine start for this new range by T-Model, and spare parts left in the box indicate further variants to come. At first glance the way the wheels are done is unusual but I found they went together very well and the result worked well. Tempting to fit the doors open on the M1114 but in the end I decided to have them shut, basically so I don't keep knocking them off the completed model... smile p

Thanks Jim,

It is nice to be able to have more time to get back to doing more modelling for myself. Some of these new small scale models and the variety of new subjects coming onto the market is good to see. smile

Hi Ed,

Thank you. It has jumped straight to the top as my favourite small scale Abrams kit to date, and neat to build as well. thumbs up

Hi All,

A couple more new small scale builds as I am managing to find time to get some kits built these days wink 2.

The first is the 1/72 M1A2 SEP TUSK 2 Abrams which I bought recently, released a while back by Tiger Models. One of the 'busiest' turrets I have found in a long time, but builds very nicely. Yet to be painted...

The other is the new and first small scale kit from T-Model, and this features the up-armoured HMMWV, the M1114. Painted inside already, now the external body is built and awaits p
