Currently on the workbench. Tamiya Sd.Kfz. 251/2 x2

Both being dressed up with additional/missing detail compliments from DML 251s

One is going to be a Stuka zu Fuss, the other is a Falke nachtjager with IR gear



Working on a small dio for the Wurfrahmen version using a Miniart set



Will eventually create a proper thread for these

So nice. I must actually build my Pak 43/3. For me the engine wiring is done so I'm working on the carburettor setup so that I can paint it and plug it into the Pz iv engine bay.





The two clear pieces you see will become the fuel filters attached to the two fuel pumps at the side of the engine. Better add these shots to the thread too

Ooo, nice work. That looks a bit bigger than 1/72 Scale?
Here's an inspiration photo from the RAF Museum at Hendon......bloody thing is always hard to get a shot of as it's in a dark corner and surrounded by other stuff.

It's the Revell 1/32 kit with the Aires detail set (cockpit, seat, wheels, gear bay) bunged in. The kit is traditional Revell quality (dodgy fit, sink marks, soft detail) and the cockpit area needs to be butchered within an inch of its life to get the resin in. I put half the decals on tonight and they were pretty nice.

Still got the Musashi, flak half track and long tom conversion at the bench when I'll get back to them is another story as I decided to have an accident at work and give myself a concussion in the process so by the time I've spent the day at work my minds had enough for the day and I'm struggling to concentrate on anything

Been a little absent here lately. My daughter turned 8 this week, so have been busy with her birthday stuff, and my son has graduated from Duplo to Lego, so have been building new and old sets with him.

I have had some bench time, enough to put this together



It is Tamiya's 1/35 M4 Sherman Early Production. I won it on trademe a few weeks ago, it came with the metal barrel and hedgerow cutter. Lauded at its time of release, it isnt quite accurate (front armour plate shape is M4A4 :huh: ) plus a few other errors. I also added a spoked idler wheel from my DML Sherman spares. It is awaiting stowage and paint

Couple more wheelie things on the bench just now in varying stages of completion. Hopefully one of these will make-it to AiC next month, even if they aren't finished I could always bring one as a WiP display.









1999 Chevy NASCAR project. Since these photos, this has now been primed and rubbed-back ready for first paint.









2001 Ford NASCAR build. Just layering the clear coats at the moment, then wet sanding and polishing with Turtle Wax. More in a min, stand-by.

And then there's this:















This is the block & mounts for the Tamiya 1996 911 GT1. Fantastic kit but a LOT of pre-painting needed just to get to this point. At least the powerplant & transmission is all done now.

Now for something completely different......since finishing the Jagdpanther I had some time to do this beast!


I haven't built anything Lego since I was a kid, and in those days, you used your imagination as opposed to an instruction book. This was something else...very intricate and 1969 parts (no coincidence!)
Highly recommended!!



Comes with stands to mount longwise, and 2 separate displays of the moon landing and splashdown. The Saturn V splits into each stage, and you can rearrange things to show the Lunar Module, and dock it with the Command Module. I ended up playing with it for ages.....making rocket noises!











Having recently visited the real thing at the Johnson Space Centre in Houston, I have a new appreciation for the bravery of those astronauts and the enormity of NASA's achievements.

All my current (wheeled) projects in one place !!




Ferrari - chassis done, interior started, body painted, needs wet sanding and clear coats..
Porsche - chassis done, interior done, body primed, needs rubbing back then paint.
2003 Chevy - chassis done, interior done, body primed and rubbed-back needs paint. This was the 'Wright Brothers' Chevy from a month or so back, stripped back to plastic to do a different car from the same season.
2001 Ford & 1999 Chevy - all done except the windows which will be finished tomorrow. Should be all finished on Tuesday

Three 1/43 Scale Tameo Jordan 196s under construction. Finally getting back to them.
I was getting “wheely” good at these, until I got “tyred”.......sorry, 5 decals per wheel and 4 wheels per car is doing my head in!



Wheels are at last finished, wings assembled and the bodywork painted. There is still a lot more decal work in my immediate future! One of the cars is gold (German GP) and the other two (Australian and Argentinian GPs) are “baby-poo beige” (Terry’s description, not mine!)

Hopefully more photos soon.

Decals now doing my head in. Front and rear wings done with much carbon decal work and getting on with the bodies now. The gold one is complete, but the other two are only just started.
I’m going to clear coat the individual assemblies before putting them all together, as otherwise it will be too difficult to ensure even coverage in all the nooks and crannies.
Pleased with my “baby-poo” paint mix, as it matches the decals pretty well (stripe in front of the “Peugeot”s on top of the wing is decal as are parts of the lower wing elements)
The gold car (German GP) is no ciggies, but the Argentina and Aussie cars have B&H provided. I’m doing Barrichello Cars, except for Aussie, which is the one Martin Brundle had his horrendous crash in.

The wheels look amazing but the paint and decal work on those shells looks pretty flawless. Nice work.

I like the Mr Paint Station too. Never seen that one before. Can see I will need to track some down or replicate them somehow.
