Hi John,

just been having a catch up

The bin looks pretty well detailed considering the size - the sectioned view would be good to show off the internal detail but it wouldn't really be eye friendly

I like the figure set and have added one to my stash

Take heed of the management - we don't want you suffering eye strain!

How about a King Tiger instead - more user friendly size?

Hi John

Like me, you are doing the figures first thumbs up. These Zvezda figures really are impressive. Mine wouldn't click together either thinking You have scratched a strap - well done. I am not sure I'm up to that but I may have a go.

Hi John,

Sorry to hear about your eyes but it’s good to take some rest.

Just take your time, have fun and you’ll end up with some great(and odd) models.thumbs up

Allen, I’m in the same league of crazy.face 20

Built the Warp models BORG Cube from Star Trek First Contact some years ago.

One kilo of resin(give or take), 8 pieces:


For size, the F84 on top is 1/48.

Too bad the insert and sphere fell in during last year’s cleaning……crying 2

Good evening fellow Milmoders . Well apart from thanking the following.................................................................

Allen ......Ha you noticed at last I was mad smiley you can come back in , but shake the snow off .

Paul........ Thank you , we all seem to like these figures .

Simon ..... Glad you checking in on me , I had a think about doing a cut away , but your quite right its just to small , so shall stick to plan A . Set into the ground , with the rear hatch open and the crew talking to the spotters .

Shan't do any more small scale , I have enjoyed what Ive done and are doing , but its just not worth the strain. crying

Jim ....... I'am glad that it wasn't just me with the click not working then . The strap was easy , you can't see the blob of glue under the arm face 20

Fernando.......... Hi , nice of you to stop by . I like something a little odd , just has something about it .Would make a nice cave to build in , apart from the fumes, although you would have the peddle extraction system , so that would keep you fit at the same time .teeth 2Some nice models there , I will have to check out the Borg Cube on the net. .

there is nothing to report indecision, may have a little play at the week end . Thanks for stopping by .

John .

All looking pretty nice so far there,and,as the guys have said,considering the size,some lovely details-HOWEVER,don`t you dare go too far and bugger up that eyesight again.............,no matter how much you`re temptedfistwink 2 ,

The figures look insane for the scale too,very "Wantable"!!!smile p

Now for a history lesson ,

Panzernest History:
In Italy the Germans have been using a mobile steel pillbox, nicknamed the "Armored Crab," which made its first appearance on the Russian front in 1943. These prefabricated bunkers, without rotation, had an armored casting carapace armed with a machine gun.
Preserved Panzernest in expositio
These pills boxes were manufactured by various companies in subassemblies contracts being transported to local use by train, trucks or tractors. They were very simple but extremely effective equipment.

Panzernest being towed by a Opel Blitz 2.5 ton
This pillbox was mounted in an inverted position on wagon-like wheels, and usually is hauled by tractor or lorry to a designated site, where it is overturned into a prepared cavity.:
Brand new panzernest under GI's inspection.
Notice the wagon like wheels, in wood and metal.
After this, the exposed upper half of the pillbox (which is non-rotating) is camouflaged with rocks, earth, or local vegetation.
