  1. Very nice one, I have one to, which i plan to build soon.
  2. Thank you, I agree, it's one of the best looking modern tanks out there.
  3. Hey guys, just finished the Tamiya type-10 tank kit. Very nice kit, built it oob with the addition of Adler's Nest metal antennas. You really have to give credit to the Japanese to design such a cool looking futuristic machine that looks straight out of a anime or manga comic.

  4. Just checking, would a ww2 luftwaffe Mistel or a X47b UCAS be eligible? the kit does come with a bomb loadout after all...
  5. Hi guys its been a while, Not much updates as the construction of the kit is gone with not much problems just filling up a few seams and sinkmarks here ad there. Untitled by df0084, on Flickr Untitled by df0084, on Flickr the join between the wing and the fuselage at the bottom of the plane needs putty work as there is a warpage issue. Untitled by df0084, on Flickr For a tricycle plane, weights are a must in the nose. Next up is what i consider the toughest part of the kit, the dreaded luftwaffe spinner! I went through 3 tries at this before I cheated and made my own masking based on an Eduard template, lol. Untitled by df0084, on Flickr Untitled by df0084, on Flickr [ Untitled by df0084, on Flickr Looks good! Lucky for me, at that time it was the 3rd attempt and I already made the decision to stop wasting time on it and to get it on with the rest of the build. Untitled by df0084, on Flickr Comparison with my previous attempt. Horrible.... Thanks for looking!
  6. Hi silenoz thanks for looking, thanks for the tips on working with pe, It's my first time playing with them but the effect does look quite good! I'll be taking your tips the next time I use PE :)/> For the shinden, definitely!
  7. Hello, it's been quite a while since my last project. Unfortunately I've recently been stuck in a rut where I seem to start a new project only to see it slowly in the unfinished pile at the far end of the room... In an attempt to get back my confidence, I've decided to build something simple and fast; Trumpeter's 1/48 Me-509, a paper what-if design of the evolution of the venerable Bf-109. Compared to the conventional layout of the Bf-109 the Me 509 comes in a attractive sleek mid mounted engine design similar to the do-335 and p39 airacobra. Here is the box... Untitled by df0084, on Flickr Suddenly, struck by a stroke of genius (or stupidity); I decided to make it a themed build.... I will now be pairing it with the equally Hasegawa's 1/48 Kyushu J7w1 Shinden. Both are advanced late or after war designs... why not? plus i get to reduce my stash in one fell swoop. The kit is a nice modern CAD-designed thing that comes with a photetch fret, a reassuring item of China's industrial prowess. the kit goes together smoothly and the panel lines are fine however it does lack the overall surface detail you can see in Hasegawa or Tamiya kit, Untitled by df0084, on Flickr Untitled by df0084, on Flickr Untitled by df0084, on Flickr One advnatage of these CAD engineered kits is that it all assembles together like a puzzle. Untitled by df0084, on Flickr Seatbelts are PE.First time using them, quite a new experience. Untitled by df0084, on Flickr Untitled by df0084, on Flickr Cockpit pedals are PE too. More updates coming soon!
  8. Excellent work. I really love the crisp finish of the build!
  9. Very nice build of that sexy Rafale!
  10. Thanks white wolf! I was there only for an enjoyable 2 weeks but I hoped I could stay longer. Theres so much to see and do it's a real mecca for us. I did manage to be there for the 2015 summer Wonder Festival though and scored some sweet Kancolle resin figures of the Yahagi and U-511. Found a nice article too, it looks like Kancolle is doing wonders for the Japanese modelling scene! http://ajw.asahi.com/article/cool_japan/style/AJ201407170009
  11. Hi ARC, I had an enjoyable holiday to Tokyo, Japan recently and I got hooked on a series called Kantai Collection over there. It’s rather niche but is picking up in popularity; (Whole floors in buildings in Akihabara are dedicated to it) it best describes as hybridizing the allure of anime with WW2 machinery, more accurately the WW2 naval ships. A perfect match for the anime and military nerd in you. More details can be seen here, but it's the usual anime styling so it may not be everyone's cup of tea... https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kantai_Collection Getting back home and high as a kite on kancolle, I felt like building something ww2 Japanese… so Fine molds 1/48 D4Y2 Judy was chosen to be the next victim of my mediocre modelling skills. Starting off with the cockpit: Untitled by df0084, on Flickr Untitled by df0084, on Flickr Untitled by df0084, on Flickr Untitled by df0084, on Flickr Bit of a mistake there on top of the radio box,I glued the wrong part on, but with the final construction, that mistake should be hidden nicely. It seems that japanese ww2 planes interior colors are not harmonized, some come in light green, brownish green or just plain aotake. Tried doing the silver drybrush in the cockpit effect, but I didn't do too much as it's my first trial. Untitled by df0084, on Flickr Untitled by df0084, on Flickr Instrument panel is a plain flat decal. Didn't go on too nicely though... Untitled by df0084, on Flickr I really liked the late war Japanese plane designs as they came out with some really aggressive and cool looking stuff such as the J7W Shinden and gull winged B7A Ryusei. Another fave is the D4Y Suisei or Judy in its inline engine guise which is quite rare for a Japanese plane. Originally designed by the Yokosuka Naval Air Technical Arsenal (Or Kugisho for short in its Japanese guise) as the next generation replacement for the D3A Val dive bomber, it’s high performance saw it being used for many duties: dive bomber, reconnaissance, kamikaze strike and nightfigher. Originally it had the inline Aichi Atsuta engine before being switched over to the more familiar radial type due to maintenance problems. The Atsuta engine’s aggressive looking intercooler and lines attracted me and I grabbed the D4Y2-S Nightfigher boxing which came with white metal parts for the Type 99 cannon slant-fitted in the back cockpit. Despite the company name, the D4Y Judy isn’t really particularly finely moulded as compared to a Hasegawa kit of a similar subject. Wings and some parts are slightly out of alignment but fixable and some details are just barely so-so on. Despite this being only my second 1/48 prop plane kits, I hope I can get the Judy built successfully… lol. More build details coming soon!
  12. Absolutely beautiful! It is hard to think of this as in 1/72 scale!

  14. Hi here is my latest build, An earlier resin kit I bought at Wonder Festival 2010 but the second I've ever built. It's an interesting subject; a deformed cute portrayal of a monster-of-the-week from Ultraman, a Japanese sci fi action show. I tried painting living eyes for the first time in this kit and it's not too... bad. There were some tense moments, but I think it all worked out in the end. :)/>/> Title by df0084, on Flickr Verokron 7 by df0084, on Flickr Verokron 2 by df0084, on Flickr Verokron 4 by df0084, on Flickr Verokron 5 by df0084, on Flickr Verokron 9 by df0084, on Flickr Close up on the organic Magnum Cluster missile launchers.

  15. Ah if you're talking about the metal gear and hinge kit, I have that one too, but this is not it. The one I'm building has its gear and hinges all in plastic and can only build up in Plane and gerwalk mode. So far, I've also built up an enemy Queadluun Rau Power armor from Bandai too here:
