Except of course for the ww1 mk1 tank.

 :D That started it all and I pity the men who sat in those cans back then and the men who ran in fear.


Hello Gaston,

about your pic: Uriah Heep - Salisbury:

I will never forget the four LPs I first bought in 1974 (15 years old), Bee Gees - Odessa (double LP), Mott The Hoople - Greatest Hits and

Uriah Heep - Very 'eavy, very 'umble and Salisbury. I now have more than twenty Uriah Heep CDs!

David Byron, Gary Thain and Ken Hensley, RIP!

Coming soon...





A presentation piece in honour of a friend's beloved late father who served a 25-pounder in North Africa alongside a certain Gunner Milligan.

No pressure, then.  ;D

Wow very nice models :)

I wish I have the time and leisure like you to build models non-stop ::(

Hi, Gaston. :) We spoke about a quad, even considered the old Tamiya set with crew, but settled on the most detailed kit of the gun itself. At one point, we'd decided on spraying the whole thing chrome silver, but finally went for weathered desert yellow on a sandy base. I might track down crew figures and a vehicle at a later date - I know Bronco do some. With a strange sentimental logic, we worked out that his father's presence would be better represented by an unmanned gun. I've really got bogged down in getting this 'just right' before I've even opened the cellophane bags. Maybe I should have just bashed out the old Tamiya kit and surprised him - I'm sure my friend would have been delighted, oblivious to my thought processes...but I let him in, and here we are.   ;D


Thanks for kind words, glibble  :) I'm a victim of circumstance at the moment - can't travel too far from my mother while she recuperates, and model building doesn't disturb her as much as my guitars...well, until I start cussing at small pieces that don't fit.  ;D

An absolutely disastrous start to the day. I was prepared for micro parts and photo-etch, but the rot really set in when at assembly phase 1 on the clear-as-mud instructions, the tyres split. Back in box you go, chum - I'm tracking down the old Tamiya set, Quad, crew and all. I'm done with Dragon kits.  ):( ]banghead[








Grrrrrr!!!

So there you go, it happens to us all. I'm off to look at the stash. Don't want to waste my last night off.  :)

O.k, groovers - working from photographs, I'm going to need one of these...



And one of these (oh yes I will)...




 Let's do it...







Back soon with more armoured antics.  ;)

Plodding along. Nice kit with two build options for distincltly different vehicles, the biggest challenge so far has been making sure to follow the instructions and use parts for the version I've gone for. Nice details, quite busy around the arse-end, have left sub-assemblies off until later. Looking further ahead, the turret's got a lot of parts to add. Enjoying it so far.













Thanks for looking in, back soon with another confusing cavalry conundrum.  ;)

Nice picture, Andy ! But this is not really cavalry, no ? I mean, not in the usual sense ! BTW... in my country, we still have these troops :




We call them "Troupes du train". They have an important logistical role, in mountaineous regions.
