ICM 1/35 BM-13-16 On G7107 Base

That’s that one built; All I have to do is paint the cab and glue it together then I can get on with painting the rest of it. Next on the bench is this; This one is a kit I’ve been really looking forward to as the only other 1/48 Bronco dates from the earlyContinue reading “ICM 1/35 BM-13-16 On G7107 Base”

ICM 1/35 BM-13-16 on G7107 Base

The model is almost complete now so I’ll start writing up part 1 of the build review for The Modelling News; This has been a very enjoyable build with a good fit of parts. There have only been a couple of small issues but you can read all about it when the build review isContinue reading “ICM 1/35 BM-13-16 on G7107 Base”

ICM 1/35 BM-13-16 on G7101 base

The chassis is almost complete and work has started on the cab; The mould-pin marks on the cab interior were cleaned up while the ones on the inside faces of the cab doors were filled with superglue. I glued the roof to the rear of the cab and cleaned up the joint, this way IContinue reading “ICM 1/35 BM-13-16 on G7101 base”

ICM 1/35 BM 13-16 on G7017 base

I made a start on this kit today and the chassis and engine are almost complete; Not a bad little kit so far! The fit of parts is pretty good but as the chassis is a multi-part assembly, care is needed to make sure it’s square and flat. I find that fixing the parts inContinue reading “ICM 1/35 BM 13-16 on G7017 base”

Hasegawa 1/72 CV-22 Osprey

Where the flaps join the lower wing there are square holes present so I filled these in with a 1mm or so square strip of styrene; Using the same square section I made new flap actuators cut to shape, leaving a gap between them and the leading edge; Although the new actuators are probably notContinue reading “Hasegawa 1/72 CV-22 Osprey”

Latest from ICM

Just arrived today direct from ICM are these two; These are going to be full build reviews for The Modelling News so I won’t be showing too much about them but what I can say is that they both look VERY good in the box. I’m looking forward to building them but especially so regardingContinue reading “Latest from ICM”

Tamiya Leopard 2A6 and Hasegawa CV-22 updates

Things are slowly coming together on both models and starting with the Leopard the turret has had most of the bits added; Unfortunately the kit comes with the earlier type of smoke dischargers. I found this out after gluing them in place so they were removed and the locating holes filled. Replacements are on theContinue reading “Tamiya Leopard 2A6 and Hasegawa CV-22 updates”

Tamiya 1/35 Leopard 2A6

While looking at reference pics on the Scale News website (scalenews.de), I noticed that the fume extractor on the barrel appears to be made out of fibreglass; To replicate this I cut thin strips of masking tape then applied them to the barrel in roughly the same pattern as the reference picture; When I wasContinue reading “Tamiya 1/35 Leopard 2A6”
