Re: PANZER IV BUILD no 012

Hello Nick....that is some weld....super neat and really looks good. I have been told that welding
aluminium is very difficult....

It's so satisfying to watch the Armortek parts slowly build, until you are left with the empty boxes .

I used my 'large box' as a paint spray booth.

Best wishes...Mick

Re: T34/85 25th Guards Brigade No 234a

Hello Phil.....I am still keeping a watch on your progress, love the 'tools'. My Comet is now 'overwintering' in the dinning room....next to the Christmas Tree. I have obtained all the 'permissions' from my good lady....cost me though. Added the deflector plates and welds, to the front , just below ...

Re: PANZER IV BUILD no 012

Hello Nick, I am following your build with great interest.
It's a pleasure to view your photographs and discriptions.

These and other 'builds' add so much to bring the Forum alive.

Well done,.......Mick

Hello Phil, I am still following your build. I have the same question concerning the 'T34 light', my guess it is one of your conversions.....'torch by B & Q'.....

Well done Phil....keep the photo's coming.....Mick.

Re: T34/85 25th Guards Brigade No 234a

Nice one Phil, your weathering is looking the real deal. I have been reading up on these Russian tanks...they were certainly built to last. Reference the airbrush equipment, I will probably go for the same setup as yourself. I spotted a short film on Utube ....'how to airbrush'.... very helpfull. I ...

Re: T34/85 25th Guards Brigade No 234a

Ok Phil, thanks for the advice...I will check all options before I buy. I would like to be able to add paint details, with a long 'Winter' period ahead I need further interests. I will take some photo's of my Comet, although most Comets on the Forum have these details already in place. I must admit....

Re: T34/85 25th Guards Brigade No 234a

Hello Phil, I am following your T34 build with great interest. I am thinking of investing in a spray gun, suitable for these models. I have searched in vain for the type you use. Can you provide details, gun, air presure reservior, and any other equipment etc,. I have now completed the working searc...
