Re: Israeli M51 Sherman

Lots of progress this week. Voyager really know how to make fiddly PE! I’ve done the usual and only replaced what could be better. Tamiya was a bit soft on the detail on this one so have had to replace a bunch of grab handles that were absent as well as the levers on all of the filler ports. 050B502...

Re: Israeli M51 Sherman

Did you find the AK paste easy to use Adam? I'm thinking of getting some. :) Vincent I’ve used it on two projects now (both shermans) and have had no issues. Behaves very much like the old Tamiya putty/thin glue mix but dries faster and clean up is easier. If you happen to get it somewhere you don’...

Re: Israeli M51 Sherman

Managed to get the turret finished, just need a bit more work on the cast texture (AK acrylic paste). 63E73F31-C498-4A4B-9A1D-F7BCCEC824CB.jpeg I haven’t used all the Voyager PE, there is just too much! 9DECECF6-C2AB-4BCA-B0AC-11723AFE8903.jpeg The .50 is next, the Verlinden set has a resin one in i...

Re: Israeli M3 halftrack

That’s a good start Jan, it’s always a pity that a lot of the detail will be hidden under the hull ;)

Re: Dragon 1/35 IJN Type 2 Ka-Mi amphibious tank

That's a quick build :o Concerning the missing interior do you know if it was included in the kit with the pontoons? I don’t think so. What I mean is I can’t find any reference to it being included online. I also can’t find any aftermarket sets. Possibly it was something they planned for but never ...

Re: Dragon 1/35 IJN Type 2 Ka-Mi amphibious tank

Running gear all done; https://i.imgur.com/DvoCXum.jpg?1 The idler is tensionable which is a nice touch. Beware, however, when building the idler assembly the instructions call for parts from the 'D' sprue, they are all actually from the 'A' sprue. Luckily the parts count is low so this is easy to w...

Dragon 1/35 IJN Type 2 Ka-Mi amphibious tank

I needed a project where I could just glue styrene, minimum of PE and no aftermarket, that I could take to the holiday house over summer. Rainy days or too hot outside, I can sit at the kitchen table, and with only a basic set of tools build a decent kit. This little guy seems to fit the bill, very ...

Re: M4A1 FL10 Sherman Revalorisé

Looks good Phil, amazing how a “couple of minutes” at the workbench suddenly turns into a near finished project!
