Yes, shock horror! I am actually doing some modelling. I decided rather than sit on my phone looking at facebook I decided to bring a model in to work and do some modelling on my breaks. Decided a tank was the best as I don't really need to do any painting until it is pretty much all together (whether that happens is a story for another day).
This is the Tiger Model 1/35 T-90MS 2011-2012 kit (I also have the 2013-2015 version).


So far have done about 3-4 hours worth, did some of the tracks but got over that (my pet hate with tanks!) so did some assembly on the turret. Overall, I would say the detail and ease of assembly is just about up there with Meng, so far in that the workable tracks and track assembly jig is identical to those on the Meng T-90 and Terminator.



So far, enjoying myself and starting to feel motivated to doing more modelling at home if I can drag myself away from PC Gaming.

Got some more done a few weeks ago on the T90 but got to the point where I need to paint some stuff before I go any further (no further photos as yet). In the meantime, I pulled out my academy 1/35 Merkava IID and have whacked the whole turret together over the course of the last 2 weeks worth of lunchbreaks.







Nice detail, goes together pretty well and since it is a merkava, it looks awesome. Lovely little kit if this sort of thing takes your fancy. Only issue I might have is the tracks, they are rubber band ones which while being easy to do, aren't the nicest to paint etc so I might look at some aftermarket indi-link tracks if I can find some for a reasonable price.

I've got that kit too but haven't looked inside. I also have their first Merkava IV and from memory that had rubber band tracks. There are a few options out there for indi link tracks but I don't fancy paying $50-60 bucks for them.
