Hi Chris,

Sorry, I didn't realise you were asking which ruins.

I'm referring to the Great Zimbabwe ruins. I hope to post some pictures in the near future.

Hi Gentlemen!

Have anyone tried to dilute modelling putty? Is there a way to do this?


Thanks in advance,

Any putty can be diluted, once you know what the makeup of it is.

I'm not 100% sure about the ones in the photo, but I think they thin with liquid poly cement.
The ones I use thin with cellulose thinners, and plain water with the acrylic putties like Deluxe Materials Perfect Plastic Putty

Hi Maher.
You could try acetone or nail varnish remover maybe.But liquid glues good.Humbrol or Tamiya maybe.

I use Tamyia extra thin to thin my filler of choice squadron green, I also paint down the filled joint with the glue to smooth the joint. Only advisable on large pieces so as not to melt the part. Then leave for a few hours before cutting or smoothing.

Could anyone please identify the war machine in this picture?

The photo is taken from a video about Golan Heights in 1967, prior to the Israeli invasion!

Thanks in advance,

hi Maher....Syrians 'acquired' some panzer iv in the fifties which were still in use in the later conflicts.. a mix of later type g/h/j with some mixed turrets and hulls etc...quite a few of these were knocked out by Israel in the assault --u can see the turret schurzen clearly in the pic with the side hatches open

cheers Marty

Agree with Marty, possibly a Panzer IV.

Check the following link:-


About halfway down there is a brief description and a few pictures of "captured" Panzer IV.

There is also a lot of other information and pictures of other Israeli vehicles.

Hope this helps,
