Wow an avalanche of build pics.

Iain excellent work on the Honey. The antennae is bigger than the tank! I'd worry that I would break it off the base.



Thanks Peter.
That's kind of why I went with fuse wire. The 15A is stiff enough to hold it's weight but flexible enough that it should bend rather than small something if I mishandled it.

Lap Man. The Quad, limber and 25 are all sweet looking builds.

Congratulations on finishing gentlemen.


Pasi, the 109 is looking great too. Glad the decals stayed together for you. Not too far for you to go too.

I finally managed to get some primer and pre-shading done on the Diana. Holiday here in Oz on Wednesday - ANZAC Day - and I hope to get some more paint down in the afternoon.

Pasi,
Your 109 looks great! I agree with leaving off the smaller stencils. I don't think I've ever really noticed them in photos.

Great work!

Eman,
The 25-pounder and quad look excellent! Really like the way you've weathered them.

Nice layout you have planned for your diorama. The tank is looking sweet. Looking forward to the finish.

Iain,

That is one honey of a Honey you have there. Nice finish on the outside and really liking the interior work.

Hi Guys, WIP update. Rough outline on my display base. First time working with pink foam as the base, made some outcropping with plaster moldings. As always trying some new material and techniques

And more progress:



Had near disaster with the "14" decals on both sides. They were badly misaligned, and I had lift them with scalpel. Luckily they didn't tear. Neither of them are exactly on right location, but much closer than originally.

I'm leaving most of the small stencils off, because they tend to distract in this scale (48th) in my opinion.

And it's complete.

Tracks aren't perfect but at least they are done and hopefully not going anywhere.
The armoured fuel filler covers were replaced with non-armoured versions as per some pictures I saw of Stuarts around the time of Op Crusader, and an antenna was added from 15A fuse wire
Added some light weathering and dust.
Need to touch up the interior ammo cans and the exterior .30cal handle, but that's it.










Some images are in the gallery.

Thanks for the kind words Peter and Gary - now have the instrument panel nearly done and fuselage sides together, so hopefully progress will pick up

Very impressive Clive. I'd say as much as it was hard work, it has really paid off for you.

Some amazing work on here. Finally making some progress on the tropicalised Mk1 Hurricane. Too much etch and resin for my taste, and lots of tidying up of join lines too.

Iain,
I'm glad to see your track issues have improved.

EMan,
That 25 pounder looks great!

Zon,
Your Jeep looks excellent. The twin MG's look really cool.

Aloha All,

Many great looking builds since I last checked in.

I've been silent, but not completely idle. Small update on my SAS Jeep. I got a couple of Tamiya's Allied Vehicles Accessory Set to solve my jerry can dilemma, so they are looking pretty nice. Also assembled the racks. Next will be to figure out the straps to mount some of the dangling stowage, then it will be time for some paint.





Happy Modeling,
Zon
