The lift table and paint booth look great. The lift is a must to get the beast into your pickup once finished. Keep up the progress!

Re: Vince's Tiger 1 late variant 2017

Vince your tiger is looking great. Don't foget the ground clearance will decrease when batteries, motors and packs are added. This will drop the height a lot. It looks like the tracks need a link removed. Enjoying your progress!

Re: Mark IV No. 01 - "Kathleen"

Looking great Adrian.
There are enough screw and rivets to drive one crazy! No such thing as a quick build on this one! Great work.

I agree with Steve, the pipes look great. I like your armor texture as well. Great looking hull (wanne).

Re: Vince's Tiger 1 late variant 2017

Vince another thing that could be done would be to machine the taperlock taper a bit deeper. But you have once again found the best solution. Its looking very good. I will keep this in mind when I mount my sprockets.

Re: 4K drone footage of the Tiger 131 at Bovington

That is awesome! Great way to film a battle reenactment - instead of the bleacher shots with lots of heads in the way! Very cool use of a drone.

Re: Marcus's 25 pounder

Marcus, Beautiful work on the brass detail parts. They add a lot of realism to the model. My cleaning sequence for brass soldered parts for what its worth may be helpful: 1) Scotch-bright pads are helpful for removing soldering discoloration. 2) Clean parts in lacquer thinner or mineral spirit to re...

Re: Comet to Cromwell Conversion

Steve, Really nice work on the conversion. The Cromwell is a very seldom modeled subject. Nice job on the new tracks, were these die cast, or spin cast? I really like these bearings - they are not very expensive, I'm going to try and retrofit all of my older Armortek models (Sherman, 2007 Late Tiger...

Re: Suggestion for next artillery piece

I like the US M5 3in Anti tank gun. Could be pulled with M3 halftrack.

The Long tom would be one impressive model. That is a big gun.

Re: My labor of love?

Thanks all for the nice feedback. Stephen I have the book you mention, It is a great reference for anyone making or modifying a Stuart. I love seeing the masterpieces that can be made from Armortek models. But there's something special about seeing and sharing scratch builds as well. Phil the M5 sus...
