Evening Christos,

Just been having a read through and catch up on your build. Looking really good matethumbs up

I'll have to admit to being lost on the in's and outs of various versions of Tiger, but always look up to people like yourself that put in the effort to make them correct!

Tracks look very good by the way beer

Afternoon Scottie,

Agree with Peter that the scene is very convincing, top jobthumbs up You can see why they used it the as ambush scheme as it blends in so well with the surrounding vegetation.

Some nice looking Kits there Christosthumbs up

A couple of purchases made for the Benson household....first one not for me but for my son Harry


Looks pretty cool.....but I won't open it for Sprue shots, Harry will get the hump for playing looking before himwink 2

I'll let you see once he has.

Next one is for me, just something to make postage worthwhile....


Looks reasonable and a bit of fun!


Thread: Revell PzKpfw III L...(SSGB17)
22/03/2017 20:22:15

Cheers for the thumbs up gentslaugh

Ok I'm calling this one done now. I had initially wanted to dirty this up but I really like the cammo and don't want to obscure a thing!

A dark pin wash added and then a buff filter to tone it down and then a little tickle here and there.

Pics are a bit dark...will try a few in daylight tomorrow,




Really enjoy the Revell kits and pleased with how my home made shovel, axe and other bits turned out.

Thanks for looking
