Hi Jon,

Nearly missed this! I do like the early Panzers so glad I caught your threadlaugh

Tracks look fab and make the IV looks stockier than normal. Got you bookmarked now so won’t miss a trickwink 2


Thread: 1/24th Pz. II Ausf.F
18/02/2018 18:44:39

Evening John,

Bummer that the hair spray technique didn’t get a result you liked. Reading through it sounds like you did everything correctly.

I did it once on the exhaust of a Pz IV and it turned out ok, I used the method you described too.image.jpg

Respray is always a tuff decision but sometimes the only course of action left. I much prefer Sponge and brush if adding chipslaugh

Keep it coming matetea

Evening John,

Don’t you just love technology....turned my back on the PC years ago but still have one. Every time I do switch it on there are always the dreaded endless updates that take for ever before I can do anything angry 2 Glad you got it sorted.

The Pics the guys have tweaked really show how good your damage and destruction is...then adding the vehicles, even as they are, shows this is going to be a stunner when it’s donethumbs up top stuff sirbeer

No worries matethumbs up

Thread: Revell Harbour Tug Boat
18/02/2018 11:58:08

Morning Jim,

Like I said to Scottie, you can’t rush a good thing. The time spent on things like the rowing boat and the upgrades to the tug are brilliant. And the stonework looks great under a coating of primer....can’t wait to see some colour... but all in good timethumbs up


Thread: Dragon Nashorn kit 6001
18/02/2018 11:50:22

Scottie, Hooch and Jim....

Thanks for your input gentsthumbs up

Hooch....I do laugh when is see this kits on eBay and the words ‘Rare’face 20 and the price people think they are worth!

You could buy the more recent Tamiya Nashorn for £30 odd! I do have the newer dragon Nashorn...**LINK** a far superior kit.

Jim...I brought the kit in 2010 but only started the build a few weeks ago....i know I’m not the fastest builder but I’m not that slowface 22 face 20!


Thread: Just a Little Bit of Fun
18/02/2018 11:39:28

Morning Steve,

Cool project with these little oldies! Looks like the fun has already started so I’ll grab a chair next to captain scorch (JR)....I’ve got a bottle of water just in caseface 20


Thread: Dragon Nashorn kit 6001
17/02/2018 19:52:46

Hi Guys ,

As you will see I created this thread a few years ago now after buying the Nashorn kit on EBay.

Unsurprisingly, the kit sat gathering dust in the stash until recently when I thought, just build it for what it is!


Now I made a few tweaks to improve it using some references, but accurate it ain’t! What I did enjoy was scratch building a new jack, jack block and adding bolt heads, tie downs, tow cables and whatever else I felt like....

nash pic 1.jpg




I pushed on with it and got some paint on it and it’s very nearly complete and I’m reasonably happy with how it looks!





nashpic6.jpgI have some cammo net material to add round the barrel and some stowage to add interest.

So this dog of a kit can make a reasonable look alike after all! I’ll post up some finishing pictures soon

Thanks for looking in, and all comments welcome

John, Jim, Steve....

Thanks for checking in, much appreciated thumbs up

Well it seems I need to pull my socks up and finish some of my builds....this one has been sitting around for way too long so....I spent a while yesterday getting on with the detail painting.

It was nice and sunny down here on the south coast today so I took a few pics outside this morning ...




I managed to replace the wonky decals with some dry rub version .

So hardly an amazing update but just enough to encourage me to finish this before Christmas comes round again face 20

Thanks for looking
