The 2nd part of my build review has now been published on The Modelling News and covers the painting and weathering; https://www.themodellingnews.com/2021/01/build-review-pt-ii-135th-scale-model-t.html?m=1 I do like ICM kits as they have been putting out some quality stuff recently and although they are not perfect they are getting pretty close. Many thanks to Adam at The ModellingContinue reading “ICM 1/35 Model T Ambulance 1917 (early)”
I was planning on getting this done next weekend but I’ve actually finished it tonight. I’ll be doing better pictures for part 2 of The Modelling News article so keep looking there for more info. This kit has been a joy to build and finish with the only niggle being the soft plastic that canContinue reading “ICM 1/35 Model T Ambulance 1917 (early)”

ICM really are doing some great kits these days and not yourContinue reading “ICM 1/35 Model T Ambulance 1917 (early)”
I’m nearly done with the build; The kit has been virtually built over a weekend and it probably helped that apart from tweaking the steering assembly and adding copper handles either side of the bonnet, this has been straight out of the box with no added aftermarket. What you see is what you get! TheContinue reading “ICM 1/35 Model T 1917 Ambulance (early)”
I got this the other day from ICM in the Ukraine so that I could do a build review for The Modelling News; Today I made a start on it even though I have five other things on the go; This was after only a couple of hours work, any seam lines such as thoseContinue reading “ICM 1/35 Model T 1917 Ambulance (early)”
