Hi Neil

 

Yes , sorry , they are all 1/35, mostly resin kits with the exception of the Panther and the Tilly.

 

I am now working on a Wolf Hardtop with a bagpiper standing on the bonnet taken from a photo in Kuwait in 2003

 

thank you all for your kind comments :blush:

 

regards

Hi Brian,

 

I thought they were 1/35 and they are truly works of art, especially the figures. These are amongst the best I have seen anywhere....congratulations on your efforts and welcome to the forum.:bow:

 

Cheers,

Hello m8, glad you found it here. That will be the Tilly with the PE straps then lol.:D

Now when did you say you were going to do a KFS kit?

Seriously m8, only been here a wee while myself and already got a load of info. Off to do some more wiring:nut:

 

Catch up with you later,

 

Barrie. :wave:

Thanks again to everyone for their comments

Hi Tim ,

 

As yet I have not done a CVRT but I have several kits and lots of parts for a few different versions ,Falklands , Sabre etc , one day soon hopefully , It isn't a shortage of kits that is my problem , it is a shortage of time ! I have kits of a Ridgeback , Panther TES ,, Challenger CR2 TES, Saladin , Ferret and several Landies (and thats only the post war UK stuff) , if only i could buy time to do them I would be happy :)

 

I will post some more photos shortly

 

cheers

I just enjoy building vehicles but I'd be happy to answer any weathering questions anyone has , I use mostly acrylic paints for the detail work and oil paints for most of the weathering ,I like to try to do models of factual vehicles from photos that have some history behind them.Do you think anyone would be intertested in a step by step view of the Land rover I'm currently working on ?, I could certainly use the advice on radio fit, interior and engine detail etc.

 

Here are a couple of photos of more heavily weathered vehicles

Excellent models, and I love the detailing on your crew figures, especialy the faces. I have tried this when I used to make models but could never attain your standard, good work.

Look forward to seeing them - i have often hankered after armour modelling, but i have a number of full size cvrt kits and the same problem as you i.e. a lack of time to finish them all (or in some cases even to start them!)..

Just seen this thread - wow. I don't know if it is an inspiration for someone like myself, dabbling my feet back into the modelling pool after a lifetime away with only memories of Airfix kits, or a disincentive in that it seems like a standard which must surely be unattainable.

 

I think I should regard it as the standard to aim for, with the proviso that if I make it even 1/4 way to the target I'll be well chuffed.

 

(If I could see evidence of just one partial gluey fingerprint I'd be a bit more optimistic :D)

Have you seen my models? :D

 

The models on this thread are amazing and of a standard I could never reach.

The faces are fantastic.
