    Default A couple of 1/35 scale softskins

    I've just got back into modelling in 1/35 scale after many years doing aircraft. The CMP 8cwt ambulance was started in 1976 ... my longest-ever build. And yes, I know it's got too many wheel nuts.

    The Humber ambulance is converted from a Wespe resin kit.

    They all need final detailing and weathering. They'll be finished in maybe another 5 years or so!

    Very nice, I'll be sure to look in again in 5 years to see the finished models, they'll look awesome once they've been weathered.

    Well done Ivor.
    I used to built models also.
    The later ones I built were Experimental rocket and jetplanes of the Luftwaffe.

    I've still got patience but the bl**dy eyes aren't up to it like they were.
