Re: Visit to Kubinka Tank Museum

What an amazing museum and experience!

Thanks for sharing the photos. Too bad it's so challenging to visit. Because it's an amazing resource for modelers and military historians alike!

Cheers,

Re: Fitting Aluminum

If I can make a suggestion... an air-powered dynafile works great!

THE single most-used air tool in my shop.... and for model-building.

Wouldn’t a 1:1 Land Rover project be a similar price to a 1:6?
Yes, but the missus won't let me work on the Land Rover in the living room....

Can now get back to discussing what our next model(s) might be :-)
I agree. A good Land Rover discussion is needed here!

And who can argue with a good Land Rover discussion!

Cheers and glad the flood was just a speed bump!

And I broke out the RR chassis and started on the rear axle. I have plans. Big plans! ;-) Glad you guys are doing well and had an ...

Re: Armorteks next model

Sorry to see that Kian!

When it rains it pours... would 2020 just get over already?

Fortunately, all us Land Rover enthusiasts know that a bit of water won't slow down their next model... You know... the Land Rover.

Just 'sayin!

Best to all my friends! This too shall pass.

Re: Steve does another Elefant

You lost me at the phrase "... without going daft."

Isn't that why we're all here?

Looking forward to seeing this one unfold. Love to see the kinds of amazing things folks get up to here!

And so are we ready for some mugs, gentlemen? Ready to tool around the proving ground with a mug on the barrel?

Re: Realistic Muzzle Flash Feature

This goes back away to some fun 'educational' experiences in a galaxy far far away... But dust explosions are quite scalable. And once upon a time, we had an instructor who demonstrated small-scale dust explosions with powered Coffee Mate Coffee Creamer. It's a colloidal mixture of sugar and powered...

Re: Rolls Royce Armoured Car

Hey Mick:

Depending on who wants your RR... I would like to buy a pair of single wheels. My chassis is going to need sidemounts!

Re: Magazine bags and pouches Bren Carrier

Oh and if anyone wants to do a Boys instead of a Bren, I have a Boys and would be glad to post pictures, measurements, etc. I also have some original ammo pouches for Boys that I can photograph.

Re: Magazine bags and pouches Bren Carrier

The Bren Guns also had 'hard boxes' which were steel and held 12 magazines. I would be surprised if those weren't part of the Universal's equipment. If anyone is interested, I have a couple of originals and would be glad to measure and post detailed photos. Bren Magazines might be a great project fo...
