A bit late here - I only just finished my P-40. I am keeping to one kit at a time only at the moment, given the massive piles of Shelf o’ DOOOOM! models that remain...’unfinished’. The M-72 was a ‘licence-built’ Soviet version of the German BMW R71, via the very short-lived Molotov-von Ribbentrop ‘Pact’ of 1939. The machine is still apparently in production in China today, after the Russians sold the whole production process to the Chinese. The Wikipedia page for this machine can be found here. The Germans passed over the BMW R71 in favour of the R75 (and apparently preferred the Zündapp KS750 motorcycle over the R75). 1. Kit box (a you-beaut end-opener 😬🙄) top: 2. Back of M-72 box - wine (no women) and song 3. Frames ‘A’ - two of them: motorcycle parts 4. Frame ‘B’ - sidecar and figurines. Note where the ever-vigilant floor monster made one of its spirited attempts on a part just out of the bag. 5. Frame ‘C’ - figurines 6. Transfers - not one set, but three! 7. Instructions part 1 8. Instructions part 2 There are two versions out of the box - one a travelling heavy machine gun party, the other a travelling musical party. Being a musician (of sorts 🤣) myself, I can’t but not do the musical one. Great three-part accordion, as you will see eventually. I’ve located one of the required - sacked - Humbrol ‘paints’*: the rest of them I can get away with using LifeColor, MIG and Tamiya acrylics. I may have enough courage after this one to tackle a Tamiya 1/12 bike - we’ll see. Given my current completion rate I may not make the Oct 1 deadline. But we’ll see. There’s quite a few parts (for me) in this one, and figurine painting. At least it’s 1/35, not 1/72! And no cornflakes either. I promise! Cheers, Dr L. *Total time-wasters
Today I am pleased to announce our brand new, up to date and fully corrected WW2 Russian / VVS colours, meaning that the old WEM ACS range based on Eric Pilawskii's book is consigned to the past. The new Sovereign Hobbies Colourcoats ACS range is based on the latest understanding of the Russian colours and we trust our customers will be very pleased with them. The revamped Russian colours bring the camouflage range to: ACS01 - A.11 Blue ACS02 - AMT7 Blue ACS03 - A.11 Green ACS04 - A.11 / AMT Black ACS08 - AMT4 Olive Green ACS11 - AMT11 Blue Grey ACS12 - AMT12 Dark Grey ACS14 - AE9 Grey ACS15 - A.11 Light Brown ACS17 - 4BO Army Green ACS19 - MK7 White ACS20 - Yellow Grey ACS21 - A14 Steel Grey ACS22 - K.11 KR Red BUT WAIT! THAT'S NOT ALL! We have also revised our Japanese colour ACJ16 - the ash-grey shade used on Mitsubishi built A6M2 Zekes (Zeros). This has been matched to the research of Nick Millman, probably the most respected authority on Japanese WW2 colours in the world. ACJ16 - Mitsubishi Zero Grey-Green
