Airfix 1/72 Mosquito B.II, VI, XVIII

Earlier this year I made a start on this Mosquito primarily as a trip down memory lane but also with a view to improving the model, unfortunately it got shelved due to the amount of review kits I had to build. With a couple of those review kits now done and wanting to kill aContinue reading “Airfix 1/72 Mosquito B.II, VI, XVIII”

Miniart 1/35 tow truck AA type

That’s another finished for The Modelling News; There will be better pictures on The Modelling News as these two images were taken with my phone. For some reason I can’t control the depth of field so that’s why the model is a bit blurred either end. Anyway it’s done and that makes the count forContinue reading “Miniart 1/35 tow truck AA type”

Miniart 1/35 tow truck AA type

Now that the L1500S cargo truck is done, my attention now goes to getting this one finished; So far it has had a thinned black/brown mix sprayed onto the chassis, wheels and lower surfaces of the cab and crane followed by a light overspray of Tamiya XF-55 Deck Tan. At the moment I’m applying variousContinue reading “Miniart 1/35 tow truck AA type”

Along with the trailer the model is ready for the final weathering stages and I can call it done. In hindsight the blue (Tamiya XF-5)Continue reading “Miniart 1/35 German truck L1500S and trailer”

Miniart 1/35 German truck L1500s and trailer

Yeah this one is dragging on somewhat, mainly due to the different colours used but also the barrels took ages to paint as well. Anyway the barrels have been finished; They were primed with black from a rattle can first then some were sprayed with Tamiya XF-59 Desert Yellow while a couple of others gotContinue reading “Miniart 1/35 German truck L1500s and trailer”

Italeri 1/35 M24 Chaffee ‘Korean War’

I have finally finished the build of this one after a pretty intensive day adding the last bits of photo-etched parts; That’s as far as it goes for now as I can’t decide on which markings to finish it in as to do the French M24 Chaffee that was in Indo-China during 1951, I haveContinue reading “Italeri 1/35 M24 Chaffee ‘Korean War’”
