  1. Well the time has come to share what has taken over my work bench for the past year or so, amongst other things. I love modelling, especially when its a subject I can really relate to. As part of my past I worked in Italy for AgustaWestand, part of this time I was lucky enough to share hangars with great people and great helicopters, some of these were the civil arms of the Italian Government, Police, Fire and Forestry. The Forestry helicopters really took a hold of me, the AB412's, MD500's and the venerable Skycrane. This beast is an impressive workhorse even from afar, get close and it really got under my skin, one day ill make a model of that I said to myself. Years later and a job change that means I spend more time at home and so in my model shed, I started to model the helicopters I'd seen up close and personnel. Sometime later having made the 412, the 500 and even the 369 in the Forestale colours, with the assistance of Bernd of Quality Scale Modelling in Germany for some 3d printed parts and the decals, my attention turns to the Skycrane. With only the old 1970's Revell kit of the venerable Skycrane available (after great amount of eBay searching) I start to think about my very first scratch build. So after talking to a very good modelling friend of mine I decided to setoff down this path to see if I can do this and add an S-64F Skycrane to my collection of 1/35th Forestale helicopters. The main airframe came first, I used the Revell kit as a template and after buying the original aircraft maintenance manual on line, I started with the box sections of the rear fuselage. With the parts cut from 0.025 plasticard I brought them together and strengthened with plastic box and rod. This went together easier than I thought, how hard is this scratch building anyway?? After discussions with a local guy who 3D scan's and prints, a cockpit forward section was thrust into my hands, the template for this was the reveal kit re-scaled, scanned and printed. Bringing these two first parts together made me thing I may need to reappraise this scrachbuilding thing. I started to take this a bit more seriously now, after 'shaping' the airframe and making guidelines on the upper deck I started to market the firewalls, transmission and driveshaft locations. I also thought about the major lumps on show. Unlike most aircraft the sky crane wears all its finery on the outside of its skin. The main transmission was the first on the hit list, the maintenance manual paid for itself straightaway. At this point I got back in contact with Bernd to see if he could supply me with decals and any other assistance. After a few emails to and fro he said he'd help as he had wanted to make a RC Skycrane, from that point on we pooled ideas and technical information. Whilst Bernd was busy designing the 3d parts we discussed I set about the first set of detailing, rivets, lots of rivets. Unlike most modern aircraft, helicopters have pronounced rivets, especially if they were originally manufactured in the 1960's, and so..... Now I could have used Rosie the Riveter but I want my rivets to be just like all those 1/8th and 3/32nd rivets I've put into countless helicopters, so two sets of micro mark rivet sets were ordered from the other side of the pond and in a flash they arrived. As it happened they came at just the right time and a full day of cutting, trimming and decal application ensued. My scrap etch was broken out and a few stiffening plated added. A few of Bernd's parts started to arrive and so were applied, the first of many as it would turn out. Well I think I've bored you all enough for one session, see you soon'ish.

    VERY early M113, 3AD 1963

    I sense that we're about to get a new crop of M113 kits from Asian manufacturers, which is fantastic news. Meantime, I figured I'd go one last round with Tamiya's ancient kit. I built a lot of these, including a few as a kid. When I didn't have a lot of money, it was good value, as it includes a basic interior and has potential for improvement by a determined modeler. The included '60s-'70s era U.S. infantry aren't bad, and could be used to easily depict other nation's troops as well. This time around, I'm building toward a 36th Infantry Regiment, 3rd Armored Division M113 "slick" in late summer/early autumn 1963, just before the Big Lift Exercise in Germany. At that point these machines were new, having been issued to Spearhead along with M60 tanks. In Exercise Big Lift, 3AD played the bulk of the bad guys, combining new hardware, fictitious tactical nuclear weapons, and an aggressive spirit to give BLUE forces an appropriately dangerous adversary. I might put the maneuver markings on if I can get a color photograph confirming what color(s) they were. I don't have a lot of references for very-early M113s, so I'm flying blind and will probably commit some anachronisms. But I want to take advantage of the kit's interior, so I'll risk a few inaccuracies that only modelers would care about. From Dragon's "Remagen" set I've taken a 1st Army infantryman, and am updating his battle-rattle for the 1960s. He's been transferred to the Kennedy era, so his childhood was in postwar prosperity, rather than the Great Depression. The older generation carped that comic books and Elvis Presley's dance moves made him a "juvenile delinquent," but he seems to be well-adjusted enough. More controversially, he trades his M1 Garand for an M14 rifle - a good swap?

  7. Here's one for our Cold War and artillery veterans: I'd like to build an M109A3 and M548 paired in road march, EUSAREUR, 1980s. When rolling along with the guns, what did M548s typically haul? Ammunition (per the AFV club kit), other gear, or crew? Or a combination these?

    Type89 120mm ATG

    Hello folks, this is Trumpy's Chinese Army Type89 120mm anti tank gun built oob. kit was almost ok until the very last moment where the vinyl band tracks were a good 1cm short, so i had to move both idler wheels back and strengthen first and last road wheels due to the vinyl being not elastic enough. Still a pleasant build, after going tru some ref shots from the interwebs i decided to ramp up the dust, believe me this is very much restricted versus the real life shots these behemots being covered almost entirely in wet mud somehow (concealment?!)... Enjoy.

    Takom Merkava Mk1 Hybrid

    Hello all, After a very long while I re-started building seriously (as in "spending more time", not "professional quality" ;) ) Here are a couple of shots of my recently completed Merkava mk1 hybrid (Takom 1/35) with crew (Walkyrie 1980's IDF crew). Beautiful kit, fastest build ever for me (about 2 weeks end to finish). WIP can be found here Main adds to the kit, again not much as it's a great kit: Antiskid done with diluted PVA glue spread with a brush and covered with embossing powder Basket contents from various sets (Tamiya, Legend and Plus Model I believe, they have been out of their original boxes for a long time) Tarp and ID panels done in white milliput Rear hull baskets completed with aluminium strips Comments welcome, always nice to have help and improve next time Arnaud
  15. Was I hallucinating, or did KH announce a SH-60 variant in 1/35? ETA: found it!

    Tiger I Tamiya 1/35

    Hello friends The Tiger I was the first tank to be equipped with an 88mm cannon which proved to be formidable on all battle fronts. I had to have it in my collection, from the Tamiya brand at 1/35 scale. Greetings and I hope you like it https://youtu.be/dkT7Twk7v7s
  18. Hello partners Because of its design and its way of acting on the battlefield, I decided to build this battle tank. The model is the Stridsvagn 103 version C of the Trumpeter brand at 1/35 scale. Being a tank without turret, its low profile stands out against other models. https://youtu.be/p1NLEeblI1U Greetings and I hope you like friends
  19. Hello friends Here I show you the Chinook helicopter version CH-47A. I had to scratch a support to place the folded blades for not having enough space. The models are from the Trumpeter brand at 1/35 scale, which in my opinion comes very well detailed. If a partner wants details about the support of the blades he writes me. Greetings and I hope you like it https://youtu.be/cORriK4ePvk

    Merkava Mk.III Academy 1/35

    Hello friends I certainly could not miss this tank in my collection, in my opinion one of the best currently. Over the years it has been updated, hence its four versions that have demonstrated their capabilities on the ground. I wanted to place the model on a platform simulating an arid terrain where it has usually been its battlefield. https://youtu.be/GhRKlpQ7iOQ Greetings and I hope you like mates
  21. haven't been able to do anything worthwhile for the past month due to heat waves, now the temp is going down i am slowly picking up pace. this is zvezda's 3632 bmw r12 with driver and officer boxing. lovely kit, no issues. fuel drum and jerry cans are from tamiyas german fuel drums set, the grass is cut from modelscene's early summer with calc stones matting, earth is tamiya's earth paste. tiny amount of washes and pigments as usual. enjoy
  22. If my armor modeling has a grand strategy, it's to build like the classic Shepard Paine scenes so many of us enjoyed seeing years ago. In my earliest diorama efforts I discovered that slathering plaster, cat litter, and model railroad turf onto a hastily cut plywood base didn't make very convincing groundwork in 1/35th scale. And in the past several years, I've focused on the confrontation between NATO and the Warsaw Pact in Europe. Germany is green in mind, body, and spirit, so I'd better learn to build trees. Here's some experiments I've done lately. In all cases, the major trunk-and-branch system is twisted wire armature coated with Vallejo's mud paste. Variations on this method can be found scattered throughout the modelmaking internet. (The tallest tree has some epoxy putty in it, too, but I'm not sure I'll bother with that next time.) In each case, I'm using products really sold for smaller-scale model railroading, so the question is whether in 1/35 scale it's persuasive for smaller leaves. Let's see: This shrub's foliage consists of the finer branches or twigs done with Woodland Scenics' polyfiber, stretched around the bigger branches and then snipped with scissors, per Andy's (He of Hobby Headquarters) tutorial on YouTube. I then added leaves from Noch. Looks good, if somewhat dense, but I suspect the leaves can be thinned by simply sprinkling them on less heavily. This small tree has polyfiber for the smaller branches, but I used Scenic Express' "superleaves." Very similar to Noch; it may be my imagination, but the leaves might be slightly larger. If so, it's not obvious. Scenic Express sells this stuff in a shaker bottle, as well as these "Eco" bags. The bag is better, I think, because the shaker is tedious and slower than simply using my fingers to scatter the leaves on the tree. I think this looks pretty good, and I'm going to try scaling this up. I don't think this looks like a European tree. On my largest armature, I used Noch static grass (5mm) instead of cut up polyfiber. I think that's the mistake. The static grass didn't give the leaves (also Noch) a sprawling branch network to lay on, that the polyfiber would have provided. I think I've seen trees that look like this in other parts of the world, though, so it's worth filing away. I'm looking for sources of larger leaves right now, and have at least two ideas in mind. But I'm pleasantly surprised that the smaller scale leaves I tried out both look reasonably good for smaller leaves in 1/35 scale.

    Stug III ausf. B

    Hello folks this is Tamiya's stug3b built oob. usual tamiya, built was a breeze, working suspension was a real nice touch but of course the vinyl tracks are letting down. anyway the model isn't mine and i was asked not to do any kind of weathering, tho there is still panel fading, drybrushing and pinwashes. enjoy.

    1/35 KV-2 in German Service

    Hey guys, quite a while back my friend wanted me to build him a monstrous KV-2. But instead of a typical Russian green, he wanted something unusual. A what if "German captured it, and repainted to their needs" The kit was quite a pleasure to work with, and after a few weeks, the beast was done.
