Finished the basic paintwork on my 1/144 scale FV432s today.

That's all of the vehicles for a 1:1 scale combat team ready for tac markings and weathering. However as I am having a few days off this coming weekend and I thought I'd get the bases made up for the models before finishing the painting. I can get this done at home and the bases will also give me something to hold when finishing off the weathering/mud/dust etc.

Soviet reinforcements are primed:

I thought that 1/144 would be less effort.

Turns out I was wrong!

Why not have a go at it yourself? You'll get bags of advice and help here.
I'm (Green) interested in trying one of these airfix builds, something I can make on my table. The Spitfire airfix looks like a good starter.
Watcha think a good starter project?

Edit: Sorry, just noticed I have posted this into a live build thread. My apologies.

This is the general thread, so your question is in the right place

I presume that the Spit in question is 1/72, if so, its a relatively quick and easy build, the Bf109 and FW190 are also worth a punt

dive right in, and share your build with us, as it's your first, don't expect a masterpiece, we won't.

I don’t do much modelling these days (lack of motivation), but everything Daz and Sprocket says goes.
The only suggestion I’d make is stick to the Spitfire as a first go, the camouflage on German fuselages can look a slight intimidating at first.

The Airfix 109 is easier than the Spit, its mostly straight lines (the mottle can be skipped depending on markings) The spit has a lot of curves to be masked off

My latest project (long term build)

View attachment 609367

Now looking for some decent mid war SS grenadiers to go with it in the Diorama base.
Only just found this; if you still looking for panzer grenadiers, Hobby Boss produce two sets of same, titled volume 1 & volume 2.

They are very well sculpted, four figures in each box with a good selection of weaponry and accessories.When I bought them in August this year, they retailed for £12.99 each from flea-bay.

Thanks for the find, but they will not fir. Am looking for circa 1943 SS Grenadiers, so oak leaf smock mit helmet cover, for that summer southern Russia/Ukrainian look.
