Re: Lets do this! (introduction)

Very nice workspace!

Congrats on the Tiger! I'm on my first Armortek kit now... it won't be my last!

Cheers and look forward to following your build.

Re: Armorteks next model

All Armortek models are good. The Best Ever, though, without any doubt, was the Mark IV :P (although I'll allow an Honourable Mention for the Centurion and the Comet). A totally unbiased and objective, Chris The MkIV is pretty awesome. I'm a "Great War" fan myself and an artillery-lover! Love those...

Re: My Limber Build

A few more pictures. https://image.ibb.co/bATNnG/armorpax_sunday_5.jpg Test fitted fender. One of the brackets just barely interferes with the resin 'stampings' provided by Armorpax. Note the small scribe line, which will be how I cut the fender strut back to clear. https://image.ibb.co/cO91gb/armor...

Re: My Limber Build

Got a lot done today with the work over the last couple of weekends (on and off) being all about pre-fitting and test fitting things. Though this kit could easily be built in a weekend as a basic kit, the superdetailing... the fun part, for me... makes it a much longer process. Which is a good thing...

Re: My Limber Build

Sorry Robert, Photo*ucket are blocking your images. You'll need to find another hosting site... Adrian. Decided that I hate Photobucket... after spending a couple of hours purging photos to get storage back... they still want $400 a year to use sharing? I think not. Nice free Imgbb.com account. Wor...

My Limber Build

<t>Hi All:<br/> <br/> I started the build on my limber around Christmas, mainly following the details from Dave's Limber build. I bought an Armorpax upgrade kit and am just absolutely blown away by the quality. I've not done any 'resin' building before. But the parts are easy to get fettled and fit....

Re: Armorteks next model

I would LOVE to see a Bren Gun Carrier done as a Kompact Kit!!!!

So much armor... so little time.

Oh, sorry. Armour. I forget where this site is hosted some days!

Hope you guys all have an awesome New Year!

Re: 25 Pounder -- The Mirbat Gun

Well, darn! I'll have to go off the pictures currently online, I guess. Though I have some connections at the Royal Armouries system... I was in the private collection in Leeds last fall researching a Maxim Perfect Carriage to reproduce. So maybe someone can get me some photos, which I'll gladly rep...

25 Pounder -- The Mirbat Gun

I have been working on my limber last few days... kind of familiarizing myself with the kits. And absolutely loving the Armortek core product and the Armorpax detail sets. Both companies are simply home-runs for the modeler! Been debating finishes and painting. And have decided to paint my 25 pounde...

Re: Dave B's Finished Limber

Thanks, Dave! I actually found a US supplier who has suitable stuff. As much as I would like the BA, I lucked out finding some 1-72's and some 2 -56's, etc. Different thread pitch, but function will be the same. Next time I am in the UK, I'll get a big order of the 10-ba through 4-ba. The little stu...

Re: Armorpax's Limber

Thanks for this thread and for the highly-detailed photos! I started my limber yesterday and have your upgrade kit. And without these amazing photos, I would surely be lost!

Great stuff!

Re: Dave B's Finished Limber

Hi Dave: Your build and pictures are fantastic. I see that you have also addressed the rather 'large' fender brackets. With smaller nuts/bolts? I had the same reaction to the rear brackets. I was starting to turn the screws around (and already machined them to a smaller head-size). But see you used ...
