  2. The second 1/16 ICM figure I tackled, was this colourful chap, one of the Yeoman Warders or 'Beefeaters' from the Tower of London in full State regalia, most recently seen during the funeral of the late Queen. Normally the warders wear a more workaday black and red number, as these fancy costumes cost quite a bit to manufacture from what I've read and considering the amount of gold thread involved I can believe it. As with all of these 'World's Guards' kits the assembly was very easy and filling and finishing was very light. The real fun was in the painting. Well, when I say fun, I should
  3. An early inspiration for my love of display figures dates back to the early 1980s, when a local jewellers in town had a collection of well painted Charles Stadden pewter figures on display in the window. I forget how much they cost, though it was well past my meagre wage back then, leaving me to simply salivate over them (figuratively speaking) and hope someday I might get a collection like that. Fast forward several decades and the likes of Miniart, ICM and Revell now give me the opportunity to build up a good display at a very reasonable price. This was the first 1/16 ICM figure I did,
  4. ICM have done most of the range of 4 wheeled German armoured cars - I have the Tamiya re-box of the 222 as a future project. This is an odd one though; take a standard Sd.Kfz 22x, remove the turret and all armament and replace them with lots of radios. Then stick a great big pole aerial on the roof and use it to talk to the Luftwaffe. There were only 36 ordered and although more were produced, the total production run of both radio cars (the 261 had a 'conventional' bedframe aerial for talking to other ground troops) was only 483. I can only assume this one was intended to liaise with Ju 87s a
  5. We've had even more bargains delivered today (please also read my last post too!) We've got more Hobby Boss bargains like the 1/48 F-14A and Me262A-1/U1, really cheap and a huge amount of very cheap Vallejo paint sets in stock!

  6. Just a quick update with what's happening @ MJW Models! We've got a load of ICM kits on offer right now - 1/32, 1/48 and 1/72 aircraft and a couple of 1/35 tanks. They're all 25% or more off UK RRP and we've only got one of each in stock and our supplier has stopped offering the kits cheaply, so once we sell out of an item, we can't restock at the offer price, so it's a case of you snooze, you lose! Also don't forget that ICM have closed down now due to current circumstances and it's not clear if they will be able to re-open, so get your ICM kits while you can. Also, we've got loads

  8. I fancied something different. I'd seen this kit in my LMS and this seemed the perfect moment to indulge. He's a generic Viking from the 9th century, a time when they were just starting to make their prescence felt in what is now the UK mainland - although their history and impact on European geopolitics would last a lot longer, but that's a tale for another day. He comes in a box, which has a suitably active painting on it: He has parts too, the black ones are for his base. Several others are optional. I may miss the arrows poking out of his shield and go with the bearde
  9. Another one that's been ticking over for a few years now. The hold up was decals,namely serials and unit codes,until a couple of weeks ago when I had a conversation with Paul Brown about printing your own. Paul asked if I'd got artwork of what I wanted,so I sent him a scan of a 1/32 decal sheet and explained that I was looking for unit codes,underwing and fuselage serials,Paul said he'd see what he could do. Sure enough a week later he PM'd me with a photo of a sheet he'd created and printed with the required on it. A few days later,an envelope turns up with the
  10. No more GBs!!! why am I in 2 at once? With a recent bout of illness and mojo death behind me, I got cracking on this one. (Think this in now 5 in some form of incompleteness) Finally got up close and personal to the real life subject of this build at North Weald. Had a little start at the ICM kit, and I'm shocked that unlike other kits there are no locating tabs on the fuselage etc. Means you gotta be precise when assembling. Not many pixs on this one so far. I've got some extras on the way, data stencils and a little PE etc, just to enhance.
  11. I started this one as a diversion from lots of bare metal on the Flanker and then gave myself a slap and finished the Flanker, so After the Seafire i finished this one too its the ICM kit and It is just beautiful to build the only downside being the instructions for the exhausts which are somewhat confusing, painted in Gunze and Tamiya acrylics with Eduard aftermarket belts, Its from the Leningrad front Late summer 41 and no I have no idea what the slogans say so make up your own mind!

  15. ICM 1/32 Gloster Gladiator If there's one aircraft genre that is on short rations, it has to be between the wars, biplanes in particular, in the larger scales. ICM have previously issued a couple of Russian aircraft kits that qualify, now they have graced us with a 1/32 Gladiator - at last a 1/32 scale mainstream injection moulded kit of this illustrious aircraft and not an expensive set of resin parts. The Gladiator should need little introduction, but here's a little background. It was the last biplane fighter to enter RAF service (in 1937), fought heroically as a stop gap in the
  16. 1:32 Polikarpov I-153 ‘Chaika’ ICM Catalogue # 32010 Available from Hannants for £35.99 The Polikarpov I-153 Chaika (Russian Чайка, "Seagull") was a late 1930s Soviet biplane fighter. Developed as an advanced version of the I-15 with a retractable undercarriage, the I-153 fought in the Soviet-Japanese combats in Mongolia and was one of the Soviets' major fighter types in the early years of the Second World War. The aircraft was of mixed metal and wood construction, with the fuselage structure being based on chromium-molybdenum steel with duralumin skinning on the
  17. 1:35 German Grenades & Mines Set MiniArt Catalogue # 35258 Available from Hannants for £12.35 Every self-respecting soldier can only operate properly when they have the correct weapons for the field. And we don’t just mean rifles, machine guns, carbines and mortars. Some of the more subversive and violent aspects of war, both close and remote combat, need the use of explosives, whether these are simply lobbed at the enemy through an open window or door as house clearance, or by laying them underground in the hope that it’s an enemy protagonist (and not civili
  18. 1:35 Railway Tools & Equipment MiniArt Catalogue # 35572 Available from Hannants for £10.99 Back in the days of yore, before portable arc welders, mass-produced tools and battery drills etc., your average railway worker would still of course need to maintain his stretch of track so those lumbering steam locos would get to their destinations safely. There are of course a number of 1/35 locos and wagons available for which to create some nice dioramas, but until this new release from MiniArt, you might have been struggling to find period rail tools and equipmen
  19. 1/48 Junkers Ju 88A-4 WWII Axis Bomber ICM Catalogue # 48237 Available from Hannants for £27.99 The Junkers Ju 88 was a German World War II Luftwaffe twin-engine multirole combat aircraft. Junkers Flugzeug- und Motorenwerke (JFM) designed the plane in the mid-1930s as a so-called Schnellbomber ("fast bomber") that would be too fast for fighters of its era to intercept. It suffered from a number of technical problems during later stages of its development and early operational roles but became one of the most versatile combat aircraft of the war. Like several othe
  20. 1:48 Do 17Z-2 WWII Finnish Bomber ICM Catalogue # 48246 Available from Hannants for £27.99 The Dornier Do 17 was designed as a lightweight, fast bomber that could, in theory, outrun any attempts by fighters to shoot them down. The long thin fuselage of the aircraft led to its nickname of ‘flying pencil’, and its shoulder mounted wing carried two engines, whilst its tail design was of twin fin/rudder arrangement, typical of that on the Bf 110. Initially powered by inline Daimler-Benz/BMW engines, but these were changed in favour of two Bramo 323 radials. A crew of three
  21. 1/48 Heinkel He 111H-6 ICM Catalogue # 48262 Available from Hannants for £41.99 The Heinkel He 111 was a German aircraft designed by Siegfried and Walter Günter at Heinkel Flugzeugwerke in 1934. Through development it was described as a wolf in sheep's clothing because the project masqueraded the machine as civilian transport, though from conception the Heinkel was intended to provide the nascent Luftwaffe with a fast, medium bomber. Perhaps the best-recognised German bomber due to the distinctive, extensively glazed greenhouse nose of later versions, the Heinkel
  22. 1/48 Junkers Ju 88C-6 ICM Catalogue # 48238 Available from Hannants for £27.99 The Junkers Ju 88 was a German World War II Luftwaffe twin-engine multirole combat aircraft. Junkers Flugzeug- und Motorenwerke (JFM) designed the plane in the mid-1930s as a so-called Schnellbomber ("fast bomber") that would be too fast for fighters of its era to intercept. It suffered from a number of technical problems during later stages of its development and early operational roles but became one of the most versatile combat aircraft of the war. Like several other Luftwaffe bombers, it
  23. 1:24 Model T 1913 Speedster ICM Catalogue # 24015 The Ford Model T (colloquially known as the Tin Lizzie, Leaping Lena, or flivver) is an automobile produced by Ford Motor Company from October 1, 1908, to May 26, 1927. It is generally regarded as the first affordable automobile, the car that opened travel to the common middle-class American; some of this was because of Ford's efficient fabrication, including assembly line production instead of individual hand crafting. The Ford Model T was named the most influential car of the 20th century in the 1999 Car of the Century c
  24. 1/35 Sd.Kfz.251/1 Ausf.A ICM Catalogue # 35101 The Sd.Kfz. 251 (Sonderkraftfahrzeug 251) half-track was a WW2 German armoured fighting vehicle designed by the Hanomag company, based on its earlier, unarmoured Sd.Kfz. 11 vehicle. The Sd.Kfz. 251 was designed to transport the Panzergrenadiers (German mechanized infantry) into battle. Sd.Kfz. 251s were the most widely produced German half-tracks of the war, with at least 15,252 vehicles and variants produced by various manufacturers and were commonly referred to simply as "Hanomags" by both German and Allied soldiers. There
  25. You may remember I reviewed this a few weeks ago Well I needed a quick build after the m9squito and this seemed to fit the bill and it did perfectly. It literally falls together with a bit of filler required here and there but it really is a nice kit. I am going to pit a base together and better photos then but for now here it is with rigging by ez line
