Thanks chaps.  :)

As far as I got tonight. A lot of work to do on the gun jacket and the running gear, and a lot of little touches that keep coming into my mind...in for a busy day tomorrow.



















Cheers for looking in, back soon with more armoured antics  ;)

Tonight's update. Had a constantly interrupted day scuffing, scratching, shading, touching in and playing with stowage. Nothing fixed in place yet, but I like the Tesco carrier bag.  :)

 Currently researching and experimenting with 90's consumer packaging.
















Thanks as always for looking in - back soon with more plastic product placement.  ;)

Quick update on the stowage. More or less settled on placement, the boys obviously went to the supermarket before deployment...














Work beckons (got to afford those kits somehow), thanks for dropping by, back in a few days with more miniature madness  ;)

I didn't think that this model would look this amazing. This deserves a diorama.

 Thanks for kind words, old chum.  :)

Well...the plan is to have the Challenger towing away the PAK 40, done as an interpretation of events rather than an exact replica (see photo's upthread). This will double the length of the piece, so I'm on the lookout for a suitable length of wood. Still a long way to go on the Challenger itself - I haven't touched the tracks yet, and there are a few items to fix around the turret.

As mentioned, will be a few days until I can continue. Stay tuned.  ;)

A slight diversion.

A young colleague at work asked if I could do a couple of dungeons & dragons figures for him. "No sweat." I said....bloody gnome wizards, they're tiny.  ]cussing[

Finding time to get things done has been very challenging this week. Anyway,  that's those little buggers done and literally put back in their box ready to be handed over tomorrow...







...going to be a few days until I can get stuck into finishing the Challenger off, at least I can see it without a freakin' visor. Manfully resisting adding to the stash, but you know how thinking those thoughts normally ends up.   :angel:

That old 'no time for modelling' has really taken a grip, so to keep the cobwebs away from this thread, I've found a few oldies that I was pretty chuffed with at the time I built them. I'd probably approach them completely differently now...

The really old Tamiya Churchill comes with every figure you see here...



...and a couple more.




Italeri Staghound (re-boxed by Tamiya) with Black Dog resin stowage - yes, they really did look like this on campaign...




Tamiya Universal/Bren Carrier (you might recognise the base)...




and the old Tamiya SAS Jeep...



Thanks for looking in on what's more of a reprise than an update, but I'll get back to the Challenger soon...honest!  ;)

Hello Andy,

the tank look fantastic.

I love the "Churchill", build this model (Airfix 1:72) in the late 60's.

Did'nt had the money for bigger models at this time.

Thanks for sharing your work with us.

Best regards

 ]cheers[

Thanks again for kind words, Gerhard.  :)

Not sure if it's currently available, but that old Tamiya Churchill would be pretty high up on my list of kits for anyone thinking of getting into this madness.

 Lots of temptation at my local model shop today - but I really should reduce the stash.  ;D

I like that little Tamiya APC
We had so many laughs running over soldiers and pushing around panzers and somehow even blowing them up with them in the good old FPS, Red Orchestra 2 ]laughing4]
Good memories

It's a nice little kit - an oldie re-boxed with newer crew figures, it took a while to work out that the gunner and driver had to be fixed in place before the front armour plate.  :)

Still resisting temptation at the model shop - although Italeri's re-boxed Crusader with various crew figures might break me.

Finally had some time to do a little more on the Challenger.  :o

Found some cotton that looks like blue nylon rope, a little more stowage, wheels touched-in and shaded before filthing up once the tracks are done...









Back soon with more tanktastic adventures.  ;)
