Great patience to undertake a paint scheme like this (he said, standing to rigid attention!). But is this not a Challenger 1?
20. September, 13:41
gorbygould
Wow, that's very effective!
(Although probably a lot less effective as camouflage). ;)
20. September, 14:43
Brian Eberle
Derek, you are correct! Correcting the the title. Thanks.
22. September, 00:43
Derek Huggett
Brian, You do really have to look hard and know the subject to spot the external differences between the 1 and 2 versions, and it doesn't really detract anyway from such an innovative and competent paint job that you have presented here. More please! :)
22. September, 09:55
Brian Eberle
I learned that the biggest difference between the 1 & 2 is the turret and main gun. Easiest visual is the 2 has a more traditional gun mantles. Prominent and somewhat boxy. Thanks Derek. Painting the Merkava tonight.

Beautifully executed Brian. It looks like there were many places this project could've gone south on you, but you pulled off that paint scheme in a remarkable manner. I considered doing the Swedish flag on my STRV 103 after seeing an example in Chieftain's videos, but decided against it. Those Stars & Bars are wonderfully eye-catching. A+
9. September, 18:07
Brian Eberle
Thank you very much Gary. The deck and turret angles have many uneven surfaces that were a challenge to mask. Lots of trial, error, time and patience. I too saw the STRV 103 on Chieftain and had a still photo of an actual 103 painted in Blue and yellow - that will be my guide. That is such a unique design, reminiscent of the StuG's. I am masking the Challenger 2 now for the Union Jack livery.

The kit begins with the HUSKY's cab. AFV Club did a pretty good job with the cab interior, although a few details were omitted, and one design error on the left control panel - it was molded inverted to the correct layout. Nothing a razor saw, some sanding and glue could not correct.

Just for Dominik, I strapped down the MICLIC trainer. The rocket was secured to the training load with aluminum strips, and the entire load secured with webbed tie-down straps and ratchet. Once installed in the bed it will look all safe and secure for travelling down your local roads.

It did have the standard MRE heater ! And we all know where the NBC hose ended up at ! LOL !!!!!! I did one bounce a BAE guys face off the doghouse once after launching it off the ground and he wished it had an ice machine in it ! HAAAAAAAA !!!!!!!!!!!
29. May, 01:58

Thanks for the comments guys.

AI - that must have been an urban legend - i've never seen a pole or dancers inside. Grin

Bob - MRE heaters? Who had time for that or ate near their vehicle? Not me, sadly.

While i was in college I joined a National Guard Ranger LRRP unit (G/143). The 49th Armored would use "our" Drop Zones for maneuver training. My PLFs were bad enough without tank ruts but that's another story.
After a long road march from the DZ we were passed by an M113 towing a heavy duty two axle BBQ Grill! It even had 49th AD placards and bumper numbers, it was custom built and definitely not on the MTOE! I truly admire a unit that knows how to train hard, fight hard and play hard like that!

Okay so now I'm finally going to plunge into 16th scale, I'm officially inspired. The boots on the prone figure are stunningly real! It's almost like you've seen what polished black leather boots turn into in the field or something :) Great work.

Impressive diorama :) "70" km/h is that the speed limit? :D
15. May, 08:56
Brian Eberle
70 is the military load class (MLC) of the bridge. How much weight it can support. Measured in short tons (2,000lbs per ton). 140,000lbs. This bridge was recently upgraded (reinforced bracing) from MLC 60 - thus the newer color on the 70.
15. May, 11:05
Brian Eberle
The latest set of pictures are now up. Finished the figures and stowage. A few final items to do and then a little light dusting. Building a custom acrylic case top for this. An unusual set of dimensions. The figures were challenging - faces in 1/35 scale is not a strength of mine. Scratchbuilt the camouflage system net and pole bags. After market lifts don't make these correctly.

I am looking for a 1/35 model kit of a HMMWV for a build I am doing for a veteran.

The HMMWV version is a M1027 R1/P2, which is a 4 door hard top with a low profile hard shelter over the cargo area. The shelter top is flush with the height of the passenger area roof with a large flip up rear door, and flip up compartment doors on the sides of the shelter.

I am looking for a kit, or after market conversion set to create this seldom seen variant.

Thank in advance for all leads and recommendations.

Spent significant time researching the bridge sub-structure and hydraulic lines. Since the underside of the bridge will be visible a few modifications are needed to the kit.

The ribbing braces need multiple access ports to be drilled out. The kits ribbing parts are solid sheets of styrene. The hydraulic lines run through these ribbing panels, they need to be corrected.

The rib panels at the end of the bridge section also need flat and triangular flanges added.

At the bridge hinges, new flixible metal hydraulic conduit lines and connection points will be added to replace the kits overly simplistic (and rigid) plastic parts.
