Military Modelling

Painting the Sturmovik. First attempt didn't go well. I was trying to make it look like the rough work I've seen on photos, but it just looked like I'd messed up. Sooo here's try two . It's still far from perfect (I really need an airbrush) . On the upside the Revel decals are excellent.

Looks like an old Hinchcliffe figure, I wonder if they had the moulds off them.

Hinchcliffe, bugger me thats a name from the past, same sort of stuff as Chota Sahib (another fav of mine). Had totally forgotten about that maker. Did some lovely pieces.

Dunno, it did remind me of the old white metal "heavies"

Normal defence policy.

Quote a price then "It would look very nice with this as well" and before you know it the quote price is a distant memory.

Have you ever seen a defence item ever be close to the quoted price.

edited to add: with that in mind it is a very realistic model representing the real item.
 
1:1 scale at that price one assumes.

I have to say I feel completely ripped off. The base kit is crap. They were raving about it on Large Scale Planes and I called it out as a marketing con. I dont think they were amused on the site - too much sucking up to manufacturers from their freebees. Britmodeller is the same.

Its why I like ARRSE - tell it the way it is
 
I have a real nostalgia for this 1969 model kit, opened it one Christmas, great memories, anyway....

@Daz our 109 specialist, is the new Revell 1/32 scale Gustav the same kit, and I know it's Revell, but what's your personal thoughts on it, is it worth getting to build?

I’ve got the Revell G6 and it’s a really nice bit of kit, not sure on the accuracy but it’s well detailed and engineered.

Its a new tool, well, tooled in 2013 as opposed to being tooled in 1967, the wing breakdown is a bit odd compared to most kits, but when built it looks like a 109, not that I'd build one myself

Anyone interested in any of the Revell 1/32 stuff, keep an eye on Hobbycraft. Dunno why, but they seem to have bouts of sale deals with them - I saw both the Spit & the Mossie down to £19.99 a while ago. For a big war plane thats a steal. Some of the tools are 90's era apparently but still very makeable.
 
Not a military subject but I liked this promo pic of a new model of an infant's school for OO gauge railway layouts.

Look at the attention to detail - particularly all the cars parked on the double yellow lines around the school :)
