Oh, so it was you I could hear down here in Sussex face 20

Recently put the tracks on the 1:72 Su-76 Im thoroughly appreciate how tricky they can be at this scale.

Looks like you’ve recovered everything ok. Getting the paint on isn’t so bad as long as you’re patient with the brush.

Keep it coming laugh

Hi fernando,

Just catching up and can see your doing a great job of this delicate kit.

I gotta side with Mr T and the JLC razor saw....I started using it on a 1/72 build and it removed part after part with very little clean up...really recommend itlaugh

Can’t help think you’ll have this finished in no timebeer

Thread: 2018 Group Builds (YES Really!)
17/10/2017 21:29:40

Evening all,

Had a read through the thoughts so far, some good idea in there gents. Don’t have a preference to quantity of builds over the year.

Here’s what I’m thinking.

  • ​Cold war....vehicles, aircraft, figures any nation associated with the Cold War period
  • RAF 100....again this could bridge all three modelling subjects
  • Artillery...anything from cannon to mortar crew to SPG
  • The desert....again either vehicles aircraft or figures associated with warfare in the desert

No such thing as a bad idea at this stage and Echo what Andy says, all members old or new are thoroughly welcome and encouraged to chip in with ideas for the GB’slaugh

Look forward to seeing the outcome once mr C does his calculationsnerd

Evening John,

I can only agree with the guys, ‘tis loooking very goodlaugh And the metal pieces look interesting, I’ve seen something similar somewhere else but can’t think where?

Now onto the subject of your pigsty workbench.... I can only assume you’ve had the windows open and the wind has blown everything around on there...I’ve seen tidier bomb sitesface 20

Everything in its place and a place for everything Mr Race....come along now, your meant to be setting us youngsters a good example wink 2

Thread: Bronco Land Wasser Schlepper

Not built this but Had a quick look google for you.

“Another nice thing about the tracks is that they are workable. I assembled a couple of the track links and they go together quite easily and even hold pretty tight. However, the best thing to do is click them together, put them in place, add the sag, and then go over it with ultra thin cement. Although the links hold tight they are not very well suited for some rough handling”

Another build review here with some advice about the tracks....**LINK**

hope this is usefull

Evening Jim,

Glad you found something to ‘bridge the gap’ on this particular GBface 20...ok so it’s a bit corny but gotta get points for trying ehh!

If this is anywhere near as good as your AAGB or the bi-plane GB entries ...then we are in for a treatthumbs up

Carry onlaugh

Sorry Graeme....I couldn’t find it in amongst the rest of the his pit he passes off for a bedroomface 20 if it ever resurfaces I’ll snap a picthumbs up got some nice stuff on the go, the Miniart MB1500A looks good, how was the kit quality? Gotta finish that and post up some pics....pleasebeer

I try not to have more than two builds on the go...if one stalls I can flit across to the other. Currently building the HB Vk1601 but waiting for a A/m tow cable so pulled this small scale out


Apart from being small, it’s been a good build. Some sinkage and a couple of ejection marks but next to no flash.
