Really like how the tiger has turned out....and not a airbrush is sight! You should be very pleased with how this has turned out in such an unbelievably short space of time!

Morning Alistair,

Superb job on that there Stryker, the stowage looks very good!

I've not attempted modification or additional items at this scale yet...but looks tricky!

Hi Peter,

Was expecting to see a little progress, then I read all is not wellsmile o hope you can dry brush the beast back into submission...

Don't give in soon...there's always the fairy power spray!

Nice progress so far but What's with the tyres...that really is a gap! I'm sure you'll sort it..

That chassis shows nicely how long this beast was! A really interesting vehicle....look forward to more soon... keep rolling

Hi Chris,

I brought some of these and some of the italeri quick builds too for my son for Christmas. He really enjoyed putting them together and agree with Ev that some of the details are non too bad for the scale!

Great kits to practice techniques on!

Morning John,

Yet again I'm missing updates from this GB by the dozen! embarrassed just been reading through and up to speed laugh

Really feel for you on the free fall misshap....all that workcrying. Hopefully not a complete right off? Looks like the rigging is full of challenges..I have every confidence you'll solve it thoughtea


Thread: Airfix BF109E 1/72 (SSGB17)
14/01/2017 23:12:56

Evening gents,

As originally imagined, I intended to complete a few Builds for the SSGB. While foraging in one of my stash overflow zones (SOZ for short) wink 2...I spotted this!


"That's getting built" I thought to myselflaugh

So it was a very expensive kit as you can see.... and comes in the most upmarket of protective packaging...transparent for your viewing pleasure...if you will!

Ok so the skill level may be at the peak of my ability....but I'm in for the long haulfist

I've started clean will snap some pics and keep you posted

Hi Marcello,

Bummer that the kit is not so user friendly after you've spent so much time on it....I've had a couple of them that have made it to the bin!

John has a great idea for a wrecker thoughthumbs up so all is not lost!


Thread: Zvezda T90 1/72 (SSGB17)

Dave...Digital cammo would be über cool...but way out of my ability parameters!

I'm think more like this....

Picture from prime portal....for discussion only.

Nick....I'm thinking similar on the running gear and lower hull. But don't want to cover up too much. Cool video btw....How many T-90's does it take to change a light bulbwink 2


14/01/2017 20:29:00

Some progress shots for your perusal.....

Tracks in place....slight mishap with fitting but easy fix....nice fit and teeth mesh with track beautifully



The build is 95%complete but I need to paint up the lower half and tracks before continuing are some rather cheeky dry fit p





Thanks for looking
