  1. It is a great fitting kit, even though it is 44 years old, a super testiment to the Tamiya designers. My modelling has come on leaps and bounds only in the last few years mate, when I was a kid it would have been built and painted within a day...now I take 4 days 😜
  2. Cheers Darren 👍 Yes mate, 1976 according to Scalemates.
  3. Hi all, Here is my take on the Wirbelwind Flakpanzer, this is depicted as the first concept designed and built in the field by SS-Hauptsturmführer Karl Wilhelm Krause of the 12th SS Panzer Division Hitlerjugend. He presented the concept to SS-Obersturmbannführer Max Wünsche, Commanding Officer of the 12th SS Panzer Regiment and it was later approved by Adolf Hitler for production. Tamiya 1/35 Flakpanzer IV Wirbelwind (35233), 12 SS Panzer Regiment, summer 1944: I think I got carried away with the chipping 😋 but that aside I am quite pleased with it. Thanks for looking in.

    Nice build Dean, these are something I have never seen before 🙂
  5. Hi all, I finished this yesterday, great wee kit but the only issue I had with the kit was it has link and length tracks, which took a while to get to grips with 😋 Thanks for looking in 👍
  6. Cheers buddy 👍 They are great kits, easy to assemble and look good too.
  7. Hi all, I have had this in the stash for more years than I care to remember, so decided yesterday to give it a go. It is a pre cut wooden model that just requires a smidge of glue here and there, and a couple of hours of time: It is a fully workable model, the only addition I made was to add some weight in the suspended box. Thanks for looking in 😃 P.S not sure this is in the right area, but couldn't find a more suitable area to put it.
  8. Cheers guys 👍 Already done mate, but thanks 😃 This kit is not one of Airfix's finest IMO. I had major issues with the upper wing to fuselage joint, I glued the lower part of the wing to the fuselage with no problems, once the top half of the wings went on that all changed with a massive gap and step. Here is the WiP if you want a shuftie.
  9. Hi all, Here is my latest build, done for a GB over on MMM. Airfix 1/48 Supermarine Spitfire FR Mk XIV (A05135), No. II (AC) Sqn RAF, 2nd Tactical Air Force, RAF Bückeburg, Germany, 1950-51: Thanks for looking in 👍
  10. Nice build Ian 👍 I am currently building this kit and I can say I am really not impressed with it😥
