Eric Bunn Just started this afternoon, might be fun little project before I tackle the Meng Cougar MRAP. The picture might make a fun little base. Also good chance to work on building my skills with Apoxy Sculpt making all the tarps and other kit seen on Marine LAV-25's.

Pavel Pinzhin Nice!
There's a cute li'l 1:35 donkey in this kit, if you can get your hans on it https://www.scalemates.com/kits/133617-master-box-ltd-mb3559-afrikakorps-german-tankman

Eric Bunn Thanks Pavel
19. November 2015 at 15:42:11
Eric Bunn Available and on the way from Scale Hobbyist. Good suggestion Pavel
19. November 2015 at 20:26:03
Pavel Pinzhin Glad to help! Will be watching the development with interest )
The only downside is that the donkey in the kit is standing still. But it's the best sculpt around, as far as I can tell. Not that I'm "counting rivets" on a donkey, but... :D

Eric Bunn This is a fun kit, fun build
24. November 2015 at 19:17:10
John Dunbar I'm looking forward to the donkey! :)

Eric Bunn ...and the donkey lives.

John Dunbar Haha! Great! :)
22. December 2015 at 22:23:42
Pavel Pinzhin Yay for the donkey! The LAV is coming along nicely too :)

Mike Norris I used a textured spray paint that I got at Home Depot to do the non-slip surface. The masking was a pain but after that everything was easy. I think it produced a pretty good scale effect.

Hunter Cummins George this is another master piece :D
And I know I have asked you this a million times but how did you do the mud on LAV and the jagdpanzer?????? :D :D :D
And again thanks for helping me and again superb job mate :)
26. December 2013 at 16:36:31
George Bacon Thanks Hunter! To do the mud, I usually apply a filter of "dust" over the whole model via airbrush using a sandy color, like Model Master British Gulf Sand. The filter blends into a little thicker application toward the bottom of the vehicle.

Next, using a shovel in my backyard, I dig down to mineral soil and get about a cup. I can get different colors at different locations, and have seen everything from sand to red around town. This is spread and dried on a cookie sheet and baked in the oven on low heat to dry it. (I usually wait for my wife to be gone so she doesn't have to know about the oven thing). :)

I have a little shaker thing I got at a yard sale (I think it was for sifting flour). It's just a cup with a screw-on screen top. I put the dried dirt into it and shake out the finer material (wear a dust mask). If I want even finer material, I cover the screen with an old stocking.

I'll mix a little slurry of dirt and white glue (like Elmer's), diluted with water to get a thick paint-like consistency (you have to experiment). The mud is painted and dabbed on. I noticed you can get different effects depending on how "wet" you get the mud, and how much you filter the dirt. It kind of washes off, if you don't like it. It can change color as it dries, so experimentation is needed. I have also airbrushed dirt colors over the mud, to match the dust filter or to get it the color I like, but prefer not to have to do that, if I don't have to. That's it! It's kind of fun, playing in mud... :)
26. December 2013 at 17:55:25
Hunter Cummins Again george I thank you very much :D :D :) (and goodnidea about using the oven when the wifenis gone ;)) and I will experiment because I want the same effect on my vk 45.02 :D and I am only 16 and cannt affordnall of those pigments now :( ;( but this is a great alternative =) and I thank you for your wonderful support :D
26. December 2013 at 18:21:42
Hunter Cummins And whats the next project on the bench ;) :)
26. December 2013 at 18:22:05
George Bacon Actually, I just kid about my wife. She knows everything I do :( and gives me full support :) I'm very lucky!

Not sure what's next, but will decide soon!
26. December 2013 at 19:21:39
Hunter Cummins Hahahah I figured she did ;) and you are quite lucky :D :D ;) and
That hetzer you have would be a great canadite :D and I have an extra eduard photoetch set for your kit :D doyou want it ??? Its fenders and other stuff :)

26. December 2013 at 19:45:51
George Bacon Hunter, thank you so much for your kind offer, but I have the photo-etch I want for the Hetzer (and the full interior). You do fabulous work for only 16! How long you been building models????
26. December 2013 at 19:49:19
Hunter Cummins I only have the engine compartment from verlinden :( but hey its better than anything :D
And I thank you for your very kind words :D and I started at 13 =) but I acctually really started bulding models the correct way at the age of 14 :) :P

Stefan Woll Hi,

some new pics. The basic colour ist Gunze H-77. After that I made a chipping with Vallejo 822.

Now one question: Is the Chipping OK for a used LAV or is it to powerful ?

Thanks for your reply.

Ist der baugleich mit dem Italeri LAV?
29. July 2012 at 18:34:05
Gerald Willing Ja genau ist der von Italeri

Frank Krause Na prima, den hab ich noch hier zu liegen. Danke, Du hast mir die Angst vor dem Bausatz genommen. Es lässt sich wirklich was draus machen.

Tigers! Tigers! thanks, lots still to do, its a little embarrassing as i have now turned in to a collector by default rather than a builder. i would like to list all my decals and accessories but i think i would have to manually list them and my time is limited so it will have to wait a while. at the end of the day i think i will have to have a big thinning session as i cant make them all and I'm erring towards 1/48 scale now anyway but where do you display a 48th B1B ?? and worse than that i have the Metal Troops Dora German rail gun. It's about 4 feet long, maybe 5 - and with 3000 parts it probably counts as the most number of parts in a kit and at a guess the biggest 35th AFV (imho)
