  1. Working on this for a while and I finally finished it. It was a really fun build and it was fun. 1/35 Trumpeter, Russian KV-2 754®, German Captured with Winter Camo, Panzerkampfwagen Zug 269 Infantry Division, Eastern Front (1941/1942).
  2. I know this sucks, but I have to back out of this group build. I am having to get rid of most of my modeling stuff because of some financial issues . . . . this kit got placed on the chopping block . . . .
  3. I hope to start working on it this weekend, but will be doing this Challenger 2 http://www.perthmilitarymodelling.com/reviews/vehicles/tamiya/tam35274.htm
  4. I am guessing this is still a no go . . . oh well
  5. So is this happening? I do not see anything in the group build section yet?
  6. Funny indeed I definitely had a *** moment . .
  7. Yeah its on the gb calendar. Suppose to start next month though I noticed one of those running it has not posted since january.
  8. With the armor group build staring in a couple weeks was curious as to what others where planning on doing. I will be doing the Tamiya Challenger 2 (Desertised) http://www.perthmilitarymodelling.com/reviews/vehicles/tamiya/tam35274.htm
  9. Hey thats a really nice build!!!
  10. Thanks. I have just found that I like the way Future works instead of using other alternatives. Was just just trying to see if there was a way to kill dull up the gloss.
  11. I am sure this is somewhere on the forum, but I could not find it, and I read Swanny's page but I am a little confused. So I airbrush Future on and even though I apply a pretty thin coat I find that it is still pretty glossy - especially with my armor. Is there a way to dilute the stuff to decrease the glossy finish I get. I realize that this is designed for floors so the glossy finish is part of its nature. Thanks!! ROCK CHALK JAYHAWK!!!
  12. Yeah I mean with the lighting it looks okay. Are you going to attach it to a base or something?
  13. Sorry nope . . . . also you may need someone who knows Korean.
  14. I am not big on dioramas I just like to make a base for them to sit on
  15. OMG!!!! I cannot believe what you went through!!!! GLAD to hear the good news!!!!
  16. Like everyone else I really like using Tamiya!!! I just wish they had the color selection of Life Color.
  17. Here is the Dragon 1/35 Panther A Early Type (1943/1944) I worked on it off and on for the past 8 months in spurts. I think the weathering turned out okay. My next armor will probably not be as weathered as much as I tend to always overdo it in my opinion. Again critiques and comments welcome in addition to baseless praise!!!!
  18. I am thinking of a Challenger 2 . . . I see there is a Trumpeter and Tamiya kits . . . I will have to read reviews on them. I will go with a desert/Iraq theme. If anyone has done either of these kits let me know. So funny I have about 13 WW2 kits waiting for me . . . DOOOHHH
  19. I am not really sure . . . I will probably look around and see what I can find.
  20. I typically do not do U.S. stuff so I will see what non-U.S. stuff I can find.
  21. Just curious with the chipping did you use the hair spray technique to get the effect and what brand/color did you use. I been thinking of doing more chipping with my armor, but can never seem to get the colors or effect really good.
  22. So since it is the holiday seasons and most of my armor is WWII I am trying to get Ideas of something "modern" to build. So I thought I would ask to see what other are thinking of doing for this group build set for April.
  23. That is funny all of my armor is WWII. Need to find something now from 1990 to the present. I look forward to the build!!!!
  24. I would be interested in doing a German WWII build . . . I also think it is pretty generic and open that a lot of people can do it. I recommend starting maybe Jan 1st
