  1. Well....after getting so far into the Bradley I find that there is a part missing from the kit. The part is not essential but it is supposed to be on there and I will notice it myself. I am having to switch my current choice for the build to an M1 Abrams. Starting it tonight. Will have to wait until my replacement part arrives from Tamiya. Whiski
  2. Well, I am back from our Vegas vacation, I bought a Dragon Firefly Vc at Hobbytown USA and a figure kit (modern Inf. Iraq). Back to the topic. I have started the Bradley, no pics yet though. I have the road wheels started, the interior started and some portions of the hull and chassis together. The interior color I have used is Model Master RAF Sky Type-S, and exterior color will be (Tamiya's) Dark Yellow for the base, then a coat of Desert yellow and finally Buff. I do hope the colors work out.....if anyone has any better suggestions please fill me in. Will post pics soon. Darryl
  3. I will be doing multiple builds for the GB. First off, I will be building the Tamiya M2 Bradley w/interior (kit 35132). I opened the box this morning and started (the tracks and road wheels are on the bench), seems to be a good kit from what I read. It will be OOB, not sure if I will do it for Desert Storm or NATO. Any suggestions or information on this vehicle is much appreciated. My other build is still up in the air, I am hoping to pick something up on vacation in Vegas in a couple of weeks. Hoping to find some modern artillery for a second entry. Darryl
  4. Is it possible enter multiple builds? I have a few kits and I am trying to decide which to build for the GB. If not, I have a hard choice to make. Darryl
  5. I will be, just haven't decided what I will be building yet. I am going to Las Vegas in a few weeks and may pick something up there to build. Will post an entry at that time. Darryl
  6. Excellent work so far. That is actually my next bench project. Just finishing up a "Panther II" kit. I'll def be watching this thread for tips and pointers. Darryl
  7. Are you spraying it with an airbrush? If so, are you using a retarder? Darryl
  8. Sounds like the place for me...lol. Thanks!! Darryl
  9. The missus and me are heading to Vegas in late May, are there any good hobby shops, military museums, etc that I can visit during my vacation? We are there for 8 nights and staying at Treasure Island. My main interest in the hobby shops is basically to grab a couple of armor kits, some modelling tools, resin/photo etch upgrades and most definitely some washes that I don't have direct access to here in Newfoundland, Canada. Thanks Darryl
  10. Great, will be looking forward to entering my 1st GB ever, should be a blast. Darryl
  11. Triple Ditto...Great tool, I use it all the time. A light touch is way too heavy....I pretty much put no pressure on it at all, and use its own weight for pressure, more than that and it could cause major damage. I may have to do the scribe a couple of times but rather that than ruin the model. Still practicing with it as I have only had it for a few weeks, but I really don't know how I have done without it. Happy modelling! Darryl
  12. B-1 Nut had posted some kits for sale. I purchased one kit (M1A1 Abrams). Very nice guy, good seller, its been a pleasure Jed, thank you Sir! Darryl
