Revell 1/72 Dornier Do28D-2

I put the decals on the model tonight using a mixture of the kit supplied decals and ones by HaHen; The kit decals include all the stencilling as HaHen only supply the codes, crosses and unit badges, another thing to note is that the decals all printed together and you have to cut each oneContinue reading “Revell 1/72 Dornier Do28D-2”

Tamiya 1/24 Porsche 934 Jagermeister

Calling it done! This has been my first model car in a lonnnnng time and it has been an ‘interesting’ experience to say the least and a subject well out of my comfort zone. I did learn a few things (apart from keep away from model cars) so it has been worth while but IContinue reading “Tamiya 1/24 Porsche 934 Jagermeister”

Tamiya 1/24 Porsche 934 Jagermeister

I’m slowly getting this finished and although I had planned on it being today, a couple of issues slowed me down so it ‘should’ be called done tomorrow.

The model got a final coat of gloss varnish today, unfortunately it has left an ‘orange peel’ texture in places however it will have to do as I want the model off the bench so will carry on with it as is; With that I finished the tyres by spraying them with gloss varnish (afterContinue reading “Tamiya 1/24 Porsche 934 Jagermeister”

Tasca 1/35 Luchs (late)

I was looking for info regarding where the fire extinguisher was stowed on the vehicle when I found a website showing someone else’s build of this kit. In it the builder had come across a problem with the Fruil white metal sprockets as they force the track out beyond the fender edges like this; ToContinue reading “Tasca 1/35 Luchs (late)”

Tasca 1/35 Luchs (late)

When I bought the kit few years ago I also got some Fruil white metal tracks as they would look better than the ‘rubber band’ ones supplied. Fruil tracks are good but are very tedious to do as you need to drill out the holes in each link; Because I work night shift through theContinue reading “Tasca 1/35 Luchs (late)”
