|Thread: HOW many wheels?!!|
Some progress has been made on this one,but firstly.....
Paul,Cheers mate,much appreciated,
Mr.R.Thank you very much Sir! It really is a great little kit,typical Tamiya-good fun,and a good fit,
Simon,Thanks mate! Pm`d you,as you know,i hope you`re have a less frantic time of it at the mo!
Steve,Yeah,wheels touching all at once is always a concern!! Thanks for the compliments Buddy!!
Well then,a last pic of the underside before it`s uprighted for good.......
Didn`t go overboard with the weathering as it won`t be seen,apart from here and there! Front end bits mostly on..
Some touch up required in places,then the final weathering can start,next,load bed on..........
Wheels still need detailing like the front one`s,lastly for now,a lightened pic to try and show some details that you do see of the nether regions!!........
So,there you have it so far,nearing the finish now,some stowage to add,and then load bits,with 3 figures.
Thanks for looking in,as always,any thoughts,ideas or plain old abuse,more than welcomed,
|Thread: Sorry for my lack of input recently|
So,So sorry to read this Bobby,
I know the pain you must be going through,and hope you can try and think of the happy times with your little buddy,Teddy......easier said i know,especially so soon.
ALL our thoughts are with you from the Smith household mate,keep your chin up!

|Thread: Su-76m 1:72|
Very,VERY nice indeed there Si ,
Great weathering and details,(nice LOG !!), superb stuff mate,all the more stunning considering the scale!!
|Thread: What happens when you have no more room but want to carry on building kits|
Time to face the brutal facts Chris......
.... You have no space,therefore you CAN`T build the kits you have left.......
....the answer`simple mate..... Leave `em in their boxes,wrap `em up safely,and.........
........Send them to ME!!!!
|Thread: HOW many wheels?!!|
OK Then Guys,
My first time blog for a while.... reason being?...
.... afraid i`ve been a bad,bad, man..... and dedicated my time to personal building,and another site....!!
This is how i`m going with my latest offering mind..... Undercarriage ......
I don`t normally do the under bits,but this kit is so good i wanna!!.... Next.....
The driver`s station,and no painting yet......HOWEVER .....
Job, (Nearly),done..... a bit more of an angle.......
I`m happy so far
Nice to see some familiar names around at last!!
"MORNING" is a concept i don`t recognise .......
........we dance ALL DAY in Smythe Towers !!!!!
|Thread: By bye for now, Stugs rule ok|
StuGmeister.......NOOOOO... say it aint so !!
Please don`t go into hiding!.... I understand it must be very difficult keeping your pecker up,with all of the health issues you`re going through,HOWEVER,WE,(Your milmod buddies),can help you throug,willlh the low times.....and,through our,(or basically MY!!),inane comments,can surely encourage a smile on that ugly Welsh mug of yours eh?!!!
Seriously though mate,i hope you and Sue are back on top form,(As well as can be expected of course), don`t be a stranger Sir......... You,after all,have been a stallwart of this great site,from my joining days!!
Take care Mate,will talk soon!
|Thread: Mitsubishi A6M3 Zero Fighter|
Evenin` D.D.!!(Sure i`ve seen your stuff on other sites)
Not into planes myself,but i do enjoy seeing a good un.......and this certainly fits the bill!!
That camo is quite tricky to replicate eh?..... especially by brush!! All looking good though Buddy!
(You Tease you!!!!)
|Thread: Eduard Airco DH.2 1/48 (BiplaneGB17)|
WOW Sir,that`s a superb figure there,and in the scale...... even more impressive,
He does have that Character from "The Fast Show",look about him,the Toff...... "Me,Left alone in the Nurse`s Dormitory ...... What ARE they thinking of?!!"
Excellent work indeed mate,
|Thread: HobbyBoss 1/35 M35 Mittlere Panzerwagen|
Blimey..... you certainly didn`t hang around on this one eh?!!
Liked the look of this kit from the start,and now,seeing it built up,it`s shot to the top of my "Wanted" list!
A few fit issues i see,but hey..... that`s all part of the challenge .Nice stuff mate,you`ve definitely been banging them out at some rate this year!!
|Thread: Stug III Ausf G in Italy 1944|
Been watching this from the shadows,gotta say it`s coming along very nicely,some great touches on the interior`s paintwork mate.
The StuG is,without a doubt my favourite German AFV of WW2...... there`s just a different "menacing" and "meaness" about them compared to other Tanks etc,
Anyway,great stuff indeed,i look forward to seeing this progress.
|Thread: Sd.Kfz.11 C`mon,we ALL know these eh?!!|
Right then,before the pics,i`d like to address all the "Lurkers" who may be looking in,(Although that sounds a bit sinister to me,why you can`t just be called "occasional viewers",i don`t know!!), in response to an ongoing thread at the mo. DON`T be put off by my "POST COUNT"..... that just means i talk too much! Also,the "PHOTO COUNT"....... just take a look at the one`s coming up,(and in my "Albums" if you like),..... and you`ll see it means NOTHING ......yeah,quite a few pics........ but i`m still crap!! So don`t hide.......JOIN IN !!
(That was a party broadcast from Smythe Towers),
The COMPLETED build....Side view.....
Various stages of painting/weathering already going on,but only due to build process,next......
Arse end there......and a very happy Smithy with just dropping on the load bed and all brackets touching!!
Down the tother side there,and now we move around to the front......
Well,ok,not EXACTLY the front...... but it is the other front!! Finally,("Thank God for that", i can hear you all say) not only the head on pic,BUT..... the WORST pic!!!!
So there you have it,it`s been a pleasure of a kit to build...... now it`s just left to me to completely ruin it with my painting!!!
Thanks for looking in,and as ever,any thoughts,tips,or good old abuse is totally welcomed
Well,can hardly believe it,BUT,the build is FINISHED ..... and quite a few bits left over for the Spares Box,mostly a complete exhaust system and a a load of stuff for a Cab....... seats,dash,clocks etc, some pics to follow before the weathering and detail painting starts. Firstly though....
Dirk,Thanks mate,it won`t be long now!
Scottie(Dawg),Cheers Buddy,the plaudits go to the kit itself ,not me mind!
Mr.R. Thank youSir,went through the middle of the Track,top and bottom,then tied the cotton off.
Bobby,Thanks Buddy,yep,some sort of Dio..... not sure what yet though!
Steve,Cheers mate,a figure or two yes,which ones?..... Depends on the Dio really!
Bill, `ere,that`s proper nice of ya me ansome!
..... Next up,the pic update of completed assembly..... the load bed is just resting on there for effect!....
What Si said......... completely agree!!
