Only 40 minutes be there every weekendsmile p My better half used to live in Trenton?

Looks fantastic! I have 2 dedicated model shops both within a 20 min drive....both of which are massively overpriced and understocked compared to what I can get online including delivery.

Thanks for sharing Christhumbs up

Morning Richard,

Seems I'm missing lots of great work on the forum. You've made a lovely job of this little gem, that camo scheme looks brilliant.

I've had that issue with VJ varnish before but never worked out why, what varnish do you use?

Hi Bill,

You don't muck about do you, back like a bolt from the blue and aspiring to build a division of panzersface 20 wink 2

Don't ever recall seeing any of the Tamiya 1 48 stuff being built so I'm intrigued at the off.

Desert island moggel stuff...well of course there's the solar powered beer fridge, stuffed full of....well beers. And then there is My essential mogelling assistant Rachel Riley....and maybe some glue and a kit lollaugh

Scottie....Thank you mate. Glad you like how it turned out...maybe one day I can finish one as good as yours and get a pic in a magazine p

Jim...Thank you sirlaugh I will knock up a base at some point thumbs up

Mr Dewire....Great to see you buddy and cheers for such a roaring appraisal face 23. And yes shame on you for not finishing the big gun buscheeky

Fernando...I enjoyed the mud on this one and kept the rest of the weathering quite subdued. As Allen says they didn't last long in the field. Thanks for kind wordsbeer

Bones....Your right its a shame Tristar didn't make more in they're range before they disappeared. The two Tristar /Hobbyboss kits I've built are nicely detailed and cheap as chips. Thanks for the thumbs upthumbs up

Forbes.... Its a funny looking beast but does have appeal. Thanks for checking inthumbs up

Hey Karl,

I had the exact same issue with a budget bookcase.....luckily the shelf below was also filled to capacity with big books ( including my hitchhikers guild to the Galaxy picture book) Thus absorbing the fallface 23

As it was kept in a recess. I resorted to some plasterboard screws right through from the sides to repair it...still good 10 yrs later!

Kevin....Imagine if you had a shelf of beers, below the models....cause for major concern in any language surprise

Hi peter,

I'm clueless when it comes to historical military matters....I do know that "blending in with the surrounding area" wasn't a concern face 20

Afternoon John,

What a fantastic space you have created, how envious am I......VERY! Well while you sit in your purpose made den, spare a thought for poor old mr Benson, and his dining table work areacrying.

With your new extravagant, luxurious den ...we expect to see a minimum of one build a month now you knowwink 2

All joking aside, it looks great...enjoy ittea Could you tell me where you got the magnetic tool holding strips that you have on your wall please....would come in handy for organising the shed tools.

So that's that. Pretty much done I think? I have some ammo boxes to make up to litter the gun area but that's for another day.

Hope you like, All comments welcome
