That's a gorgeous T34, Buglord. Real texture.

 

Custard! What can I say? Lovely work. I've just started doing some figures as well. My 11 year old son is very much into all things Napoleonic and is doing a lot of figures, so I've joined in. I'll show him yours so he can see what we have to aim for!

I'm assuming 28mm?.... ;)

 

Those are stunning. What are they? Verlinden?

Fantastic! I did the Polish Lancer from the Airfix kit in 54 mm back in 1976! I gave it to a friend, thanks for bringing back a good memory!. As far as scale goes I guessing something in the 90 to 100 mm range?

Thank you sallee :) The US soldier is Verlinden and made from resin. The two Napoleonic figures are white metal produced by Ray Lamb who unfortunately has now retired from making kits. The Verlinden is around 75mm and the others 2 are about 80mm.  


Something I did from a very long time ago. 28mm Warhammer 40k figures.

Do you have any figures to show us Gramps?

No. Haven't done figures in years. I'm working on a King Tiger that is ready for paint. I'll get to it in a few days...I hope. Here is a Panzer I that I built in 78/79, don't know why this one survived but it did.

Great job with figures, Cus. What colors you use when coloring them? Oil or watercolors? Are you using brush only or airbrush too?

Sorry it's not an aircraft or vehicle but seeing as we are approaching the 200th anniversary of the Battle of Waterloo, I thought I would post my take on a drummer of the Coldsteam guards.

Love it! No need to weather it. Just wait for 35 years for a natural patina to develop!

German submachine gunner. Tamiya 1:16 scale. Made a few years ago.
Pictures are unfortunately not fantastic.

Thank You for Your kind words. I think I should give it a second try. This is the first model, where I tried some "shadowing" and "wash". The result is as it is.

P.S.: If I remember right, the water bottle is covered in flour to get some structure.

Nice outcome on the flour then.

I must try that when thinking on adding texture on models, Thanks for the info.

Nice! SE 5.

SE 5 was always a favourite WW I fighter of mine, excellent pilot too.

Loving the scramble pic too.....Nice!

Nice snow on that Sherman.

Gone big scale with a Pocher 1/8th scale Lamborghini Aventador.

Just finished it.

Added carpets and painted some parts correctly too.

 

Also building 1/8th Lamborghini Countach Part work by De agostini too.

Some detailing here and there needed.

Thanks for the compliments.

Its a great kit but definitely not for beginners as I had a few head scratching moments on this one I will admit.

That Catalina is superb! I almost always mess up struts - I think the only time I got them right was on my 1/72 Hs-123 :biggrin:

 

By the way, does anyone know where I can find a 1/72 Il-2 model 1942?

Well done Buglord! Looks fantastic!

 

Cybermat - there are four or five different kits of the IL-2 in 1/72. Not sure if any are the 1942 model. The Tamiya offering gets good reviews. In addition Airfix, Academy, Eduard and some others have kits in 1/72.

What scheme are you doing for your catalina...

 

I was looking at a Catalina in the model store.... but... somehow I  managed to mess up and take home something completely different.

Okay, Zvezda makes a model 1942 in 1/72.

Thank you, I'll check it out as soon as I finish my He-111, Ju-88, Ar-196, Fw-190, Bf-109, Spitfire (2 of them), Lancaster, Hurricane, Ju-87, German Infantry, American Infantry, Sturmpanzer IV, Schwimmwagen, Type VII-B U-boat, Bismarck, and Type XXI U-boat.

 

Got a lot of work ahead :lol:

Lol! At some point we become model kit collectors and not builders. I'm sure I have over a 100 unbuilt kits, some dating back to the late seventies. I'm retired now and still have trouble finding time to get on with my modeling. My wife has had me tied up with building her a 1" scale dollhouse, it's done, but now I'm in the middle of making her a gazebo to go along with it. Between BOS, ROF, DCS, modeling, and normal day-to-day chores I'm as busy as can be. I have a 1/48 Yak and a 1/48 Gaz Quad Maxim AAA truck that I want to get started on, maybe a mini diorama in the making. Whatever it is you are doing just remember to have fun!
