Build complete 05/10/2018

So my latest build (and the second for the year) is complete. This was built for a WW1 themed Group Build on the International Scale Modeller forum intscalemodeller.com This was something different for me as I usually build German armour. The base is an old CD case. I've entitled this little vignette "After the Battle. Somewhere in France, 1918". All brush painted as usual.

Kursk 75 builds Tiger progress. Turret interior 19/09/2018

Now as I plan to leave the turret roof and escape hatch movable. I'm doing the turret with an interior. Here is the progress so far.

And a quick mock up of how (hopefully) the model will look when completed. Excuse the paint on the model, it came from a previous build which I never completed. The gun and mantlet will be repainted.

Kursk 75 builds 1/35 Tiger I 08/09/2018

The next build in this themed builds is Dragon's 1/35 Tiger I Early Production.

And I started on the turret, and the 8.8cm KwK 36 L/56 gun. The "dreaded 88".

Build complete. Tamiya 1/35 Panther Ausf.D Kursk Anniversary build

The first model for my Kursk anniversary themed build is now complete and in the collection.

The model represents #432 of the 4th Kompanie of the 51st Panzer Battalion of the 39th Panzer Regiment during the Battle of Kursk.

It was an enjoyable build. The only things I added that were not included in the kit were the width indicators on the front fender's.

And below are a couple of images of the real #432 during the Battle of Kursk.

As I've been engrossed in the FV432 and the Takom Panther builds, I've decided to get the Tamiya Panther Ausf.D on the way to completion. Here she is as of a few minutes ago. Nearly there now, just a few more things to add, and she's done.
