Dear Mates in Scale!
I have a question for all of you if you happen to know a decent article online or printed about "What is Scale Modeling?" for those who is copmpletely unfamiliar with the hobby.
Me and my fellow modelers are preparing a public exhibition in my hometown about scale modelling in all its glory and variety, and I am rather lost for words when trying to compose a brief but comprehensive material about our hobby.
So if anyone could point me to the articles or other media on the subject of great introduction to scale modeling, I'd be happy and grateful! :)
Cheers and thanks in advance!

Olly Hello Pavel
The introduction to "Scale modelling step by step" an Airfix Model World Special should be to your taste. Its title is "This is modelling !" In three pages it gives a very good definition of all the good things about modelling.
Hope you can find a copy in Rodinia.
The web site is :

Pavel Pinzhin Thank you so much Olly for the tip! I believe I will be able to acquire a digital copy here :)

Pavel Pinzhin Thanks, mates! I have another box of this gem of a kit, and strongly considering to cross-kit it with the TUSKII from Tiger Models (that is immensly more poor comparing to this one). Though I have a hunch that we might see TUSKII from FlyHawk in some future.

Spanjaard great job on the model, and also in the little vignette... excellent !
01. February at 07:08:28
Pavel Pinzhin Spanjaard, thank you! The vignette is pretty simple: a jar of pre-mixed texture earth from Wilder for the ground, a bit of sand and gravel, two-tone painting - overall green-bluish-gray for nice shadows, and then light-biege, airbrushed from one side at a sharp angle to the surface; and a couple of pre-made grass tufts from ArmyPainter. Plug it into a cheap photoframe - and that's it! :)
02. February at 06:06:14
Spanjaard "and that's it"... your make it sound as you did not do anything :D very well composed and put into practice :)
02. February at 07:25:21
Doug Your awards are well deserved, congrats
02. February at 20:28:40
Pavel Pinzhin Doug, thanks! :) The model has three more nearby model shows to attend before its exhibition retirement :D

Pavel Pinzhin Well, maybe I used the term incorrectly. By "kitbashing" I meant to buy like three or four different kits from different manufacturers, to compose one quality model out of them and throw the rest into "maybe-one-day-i'll-need-it" bin.
But I know what you mean, with those three halves :) My own constant dilemma between going deeper into detailing vs. actually get the model done vs. "ooh, I wanna try that new technique but it's scary" made me split my stash into at least two parts: simpler or lower quality models that I'll use as practice ones without fear to ruin something, and some really good high quality ones that I want do full justice with superdetailing and certain results. Gonna see what will come of it :)
07. January 2016 at 10:26:40
Scott Dutton Good plan to improve. Think your interpretation of kitbash is correct, my poor English......
He just adds detail to existing kit with plastic card etc.
Mind you he is no slouch, if you look in my collection at the Msta, he gave it to me (after much pestering, he normally builds your scale). He built from scratch over a decade starting in the 90's when the only photos were Cold War Intelligence type ones. He even had the loader on the turret rear covered as he didn't think it was any good. I was so pleased to receive it, I uncovered that component and repainted, then of course Trumpeter announced their kit. Thought I was one of the few in the world with such a model. Detail is pretty good considering the 4 images her had to work with. Still holds a special place in my heart, love my artillery. Great friend helps me with research always, as he is a hoarder and can recollect amazing details.

Ingo F Hey Pavel, it is not snobish. Its ok and i fully understand what you mean. I just wanted to tell you that there is a kit of this model in case you didnt know. The price of the Modelcollect models is an other topic. :D
07. January 2016 at 13:57:32
Pavel Pinzhin Ingo - yeah, probably I wanted to share my grudge at Modelcollect with someone really bad since I jumped right at it :D And thanks for reminding me of the kit :)

Scott - you probably was thinking of "scratchbuilding", that's the word, and a very noble skill to develop!
07. January 2016 at 16:28:27
Scott Dutton I only use that for modelling with no or minimal start point, definitely for the msta I mentioned. It is interesting to see the debate it causes in out local IPMS competition. Another of my friends is true scratch builder, he has used plastic card, pill bottles, even pens to create models that are now being produced by mainstream, then he enters in this category and gets beaten by those that assemble ships with prepurchased hulls and all the fittings from other companies, so is assembly of parts collected. It makes him angry.
Me, I just enjoy looking at what people make whatever the word is and however they made it and appreciate the model and the skill they have to finish it.

MRMLA Superb!!!

Spanjaard a hell of job Pavel. really impressive!
01. February at 07:05:42
