Very nice, Bug. Looks like the Italeri Crusader. I have one in the stash. How did it go together?

Thanks for the support guys.

 

Bug I also had three stents 11 years ago but they came back to haunt me as one was blocked this time round , the new model stents are much better now..

 

I am now back home now and will be starting rehab soon and the pain is less each day now.

I have six unopened bag parts for my E Type project and will update soon.

 

Also just bought a H and K Models 1/32nd scale Dornier Do 335 A......Its a beauty of a kit and can't wait to get started on it while I wait for more E Type parts while I do my cardiac rehab programme.

 

BTW Nice Crusader looks awesome.

 

Staying positive. Von.

Thanks everyone.... 

 

Glad your on the mend Von..  I Heard HK Models are very good but pricey ... 1/32 B25 would be nice :)

 

Greiff i just checked it out.. some interesting work on there......

 

Sallee it went together very well... i was quite impressed with it .... Added all the ammo creates etc from the italeri allied accessories kit which cost me a fiver.

All the new E Type parts fitted to front subframe, they were mostly steering and brakes so no great update.

 

Just bought the Zoki mura Ho/Go 229 in 1/32nd scale, it should be on its way today.

 

Looking forward to building these Wonder weapons.

Therion, is that a M-706? I have never seen a model of one before. And the last time I saw one was 1981 or so. I was in Air base ground defence school in Texas USA. The instructor wanted to show us how it floated and drove it into a pond named german tank.He forgot to check the drain plugs, it sank. :huh:

@ Ghost666

 

Yes, this is the M706 Commando Car. I chose to do a version used during Vietnam War. This kit is from

HobbyBoss in 1/35 and isn't too bad, but the interior is only basic so one need to improve a little bit.

I did some scratch, but not very much as you can't see really anything with these small hatches.

 

@ all

 

Thanks for your comments. I try to improve my skills and techniques. Some of the shown models are

completed except for dirt and mud.

The panther needs his tracks (individual links) and the side skirts. And of course a lot of dust, dirt and

mud, but it all depends on what scenery I will display the model.

 

The U-Boot VII on my workbench is another story. Originally ordered together with all the interior modules

from CMK only the U-Boot arrived and the dealer left a note that the CMK resin kits were not available

anymore (discontinued). So I started to build the U-Boot as is out of the box. When I just finished it,

the postman rang twice and I got these bloody (discontinued?) resin interior modules - great! So now

I have a nearly finished U-Boot and these resin parts - and this means: New U-Boot VII and Pontos

detail set, but this will be definitely a project for next year and the last submarine for me... I guess.

 

Cheers

Nice stuff, Therion. Who doesn't love a Char B1 bis?

Hilarious story about the postman. Sounds like the sort of thing that would happen to me!

It is 1:72. To be honest, I was surprised how small the thing is. Looks kinda cute :D

I meant small when compared to regular WWII fighters for example.

I wouldn't dare to call the model small compared to builds You do. That would be pure blasphemy :)
