William Onofreychuk How's the kit feel so far? Looks real nice.

Dave Flitton Ok, I will watch
7. December 2018 at 17:34:02
Dec Roberts Thanks for watching Gents, William the kit is very good just debating whether to get after market tracks as the kit rubber bands are a little tight.
8. December 2018 at 22:17:39
William Onofreychuk Ok. By looking at the photos the surface detail looks really nice. I know I bought the old 1970's M8 howitzer for my brother and he said it was quite nice. He got Meng's aftermarket tracks for it which are really nice. They need no glue and are fully workable if you are careful.
9. December 2018 at 01:44:23
Dave Flitton Definitely get the tracks and the AFV suspension upgrade

Robert W Martel So now having Monogram, Tamiya, Academy, Italeri & Hobby Boss tank kits I had to get an AFV Club kit to compare. The reviews rate them pretty highly. I've taken a bunch of pics, so I'll make an album too.

John Van Kooten Awesome! It looks really great!
2. November 2015 at 08:27:38
Patrik Spett Thanks, it was an old tamiya kit. It looked horrible before I added some weathering. I tried a new technique to add dust. I mixed pigments with 2/3 turpentine and 1/3 pigment fixer (ammo of mig or AK) and just painted it on the tank. Then I took a large brush and just brushed untill it looked okay. The pigment fixer made the pigments to stay when I airbrushed a varnish over it. Old kits are good to experiment with :)
2. November 2015 at 08:40:21
John Van Kooten Haha! Yes, I agree. Old kits are perfect for experimenting ;)

Thanks for the info on your workflow! I'm always interested in other people's methods You definitely made this one look like a fine specimen in this experiment!

Dear Tim.

Please do not describe our (my) models as "reboxes". Please treat them as new models, belonging to the family of the models of American light tanks M3/M3A1/M3A3/M5/M5A1. The family of these tanks is numerous, nad I took the decision to make as many of them as possible, NOT making them as REBOXES with decals changed only.
ALL the models fro this series/family, are different in plastic parts, sometimes these differances are small (few parts only), but in some circumstances bigger.
You should to look into the boxes first, than to describe them as "rebox". The idea was to make the whole family of the tanks/models, each time from different unit, each time different from the others in plastic parts, deaclas and story.
So I wish to ask You (kindly) for changing the descriptions below the models presented. By the way Where is the M5 model? It is also the member of the family, shame on You! So, once again, they are not reboxes of old models, they are family as a whole! The family of totally new models.

With Regards

Christian Ristits Presenting a company in a public forum, the words written should have been chosen more carefully. It sounds absolutely not polite, even due to the fact that Google translation has made some errors. Anyway, a big "thank you" to Tim, which is supporting this forum in auch a great way! Cheers chris

Jean Tchao Well...Well.. having the Mirage company joining this site is a great proof Scalemates is THE reference site for Modelling passionate like me ! By the way I have some Mirage Kits in my stash and I like the fact that they provide some PE parts in 1/72 scale even if a greedy man like me would have wished more :).. improvements could be the tracks :) another proof that everybody can Improve :) anyway : Tim please continue to improve your Site, while we all continue to improve the content, and.. Mister from Mirage continue to produce kits :) Cheers !
25. September 2015 at 18:08:51
M.Julian Marles Regardless of the marketing concerns of Mirage - and I own many Mirage kits - they should be listed as reboxes with new parts fore each version unless something substantial like entire hull and suspension has been retooled or the like. Decals and an extra small sprue added do not a "new kit" make.
25. September 2015 at 18:09:08
John Van Kooten Three things ( while I was typing this I see that some of my points have also already been mentioned by my fellow mates :) ) :

1. Why post a complaint and some sort of an accusation (there's an exclamation mark, so there's clear intent to emphasize that part of the statement) publicly? Why not send an email to Tim directly if you want to discuss something. I take it you are able to manage finding the CONTACT button on this website? It's in the upper right corner. Especially if you are a manufacturer and probably want to discuss things in a civilized and professional manner?
Although... "shame on you" doesn't exactly resemble anything remotely professional, especially since it was publicly posted......
If you didn't mean to say that, that makes things even worse and all the more reason you shouldn't have posted that in the first place. I mean seriously... if you yourself do not understand the things you are writing / saying then by all means... do not write / say them in the first place.. :S jeez...

Also, we should not have to explain that this is not a commercial website and that it is user maintained. He himself, on the other hand, should have made an effort to understand where he is BEFORE he publicly posted ANYTHING.

2. I fail to see how those kits are NOT reboxes. They clearly share some of the same base sprues! Even between the M3 kits and the M5 kits. And before you ask, yes, I have made an effort to verify that!

You may WANT to have them treated as all new tool kits but they simply ARE NOT. You even say that yourself... Quote:

"are different in plastic parts, sometimes these differances are small (few parts only), but in some circumstances bigger"

Having quoted that, a larger amount of changed / added / removed parts is still not a full new tool. It means it is still based off of another, earlier manufactured kit, i.e., it is a REBOX with parts changed. Simple as that.

I can understand that from a commercial point of view it is better (for you) to have them treated as all new tooled kits but then you may be surprised to learn that this is not a website for advertisements. This is a user / (potential) customer maintained database that includes as accurate as possible information on the kits added.

We try to make it possible for everyone (both ScaleMates users and people that do not have a user account here) to get the information they seek. Which is ACCURATE info on what is in the box and what to expect of a certain kit. We do not try to sell the kits by advertising false info, which it would be if we were to make all of those kits you mention look like they are all newly tooled kits.

3. If I may give you some (commercial business) advice? At the very least post clear and high resolution sprue shots of your kits on your website? Some added images of a completely built kit would also be welcomed.
The fact that you and many of your fellow manufacturers do not have these images on your collective websites, or any other clear informational images for that matter, is one of main reasons websites like ScaleMates exist! You chase your potential customers off on a hunt for information. This means you yourself lose all control over what information is fed to your potential customers. Be clear about what it is you are selling, do not make it hard to find the info.
I am giving you this tip from the viewpoint of a customer because I actually like your kits! They are pretty good! You have nothing to hide, you should be proud to show off your kits on your website! Your website is the face of you and your company. Make good use of it.

Luis Alvarez Thanks guys! Tamiya's M8 kit is really outdated and lacks of a lot of details. I tried to work'em out with sheet metal and plastic, solder and copper wire, a couple of Eduard's PE kits and Verlinden's + TM resin. I added texture to the upper surfaces with Tamiya liquid cement and my finger. I'm currently working in the suspension, but the kit's wheels are early type and my subject is late type, besides the VVS lacks detail. Fortunately, AFV club sells the M3/M5/M8 suspension in kit firm for a reasonable price and what a bounty it is! Cheers!

Maik Berlin Hello Luis! I am definitely watching your project! Ever wanted to build an M8, but as you said, the price for the resin-one is very high. So your build is highly interesting! Good work so far!
29. June 2015 at 07:55:16
Kerry COX Lous, I am always fascinated by the 'detail' and yours is not lacking from it.
Just a tremendous series of images mate, you gotta' love it. :)

Luis Alvarez One day looking through my books I found a really interesting photo of an M8 HMG somewhere in Italy providing support fire for a japanese-american assault on a mountain side. I got interested and decided to build the thing but the only offer of M8 kits was the really old Tamiya kit with all the well-known detail and dimensional issues. Well, as I refused to pay over US$100 for a resin replica thatv also has many issues, I went for the build.
28. May 2015 at 17:55:40
Luis Alvarez Thanks for the encouragement guys! I'm kind of a slow builder, my work is extremely time consuming and barely leaves me with some free time. Nevertheless, I went on to finishing the exterior details and primed the whole model with Tamiya primer. This is a necessary step as the models has very different materials in it (copper, aluminum, brass, polyestyrene and resin!), so the paint needs a uniform surface to properly and permanently cover all surfaces. Current work is focused on the suspension, wheels and tracks. I got Friulmodel tracks because I like the way real metal "hangs". To me it adds a lot of realism to the model, although they are expensive and take a long time to assemble and fit. All I all, this project has become a costly one as the final bill is getting over the 100 bucks I refused to pay for a resin replica. What can I say? Well, it's been fun!
27. June 2015 at 17:03:53
Dave Flitton I saw the same picture and I am also building an M8 (althogh all my building has ground to a halt). I will be looking forward to this build.
27. June 2015 at 17:49:28
Rui S "somewhere in Italy providing support fire for a japanese-american assault on a mountain side" ???
27. June 2015 at 17:57:40
Luis Alvarez What seems to be the problem? The assault was from the 442nd Regiment "Nisei" the famous Japanese-American unit of WWII.
27. June 2015 at 18:30:00
Luis Alvarez It's a cool picture isn't it? Given the slope angle on that hill, only the M8 could do the job. I guess the 75mm rounds passed right aside the infantry or the assault came from a different direction. Brave men!
27. June 2015 at 18:44:59
Rui S Ah ok, no problem, just didn't understand it like that. Yap nice picture.

John Van Kooten Excellent work, Alan! Very nice! I still somehow truly love completely unworn looking vehicles! :)
9. June 2014 at 19:13:03
Frank Krause Nice work, Alan! I like the clean look. Somewhat different from today's trend.
10. June 2014 at 06:20:34
Alan Rush Thanks John. Thanks Frank. Didn't have any experience or knowledge for any other weathering. My KV II was my first experiment with that. Every tank has to be new one day, but with the hedge cutter installed, it should be weathered a bit since it must be in the field in Normandy.
10. June 2014 at 06:34:27
John Van Kooten Yes, that is true. But like Frank said, it is refreshing to see something not so heavily weathered for a change :) and there is art in building a model too
10. June 2014 at 07:50:18
Christian Bruer ....and you have to work very clean as Alan did. No chance to hide mistakes, to much glue etc.
10. June 2014 at 16:55:55
Clifford Keesler Great looking tank Alan. I did not know the Helldiver was your first airplane, you did an excellent job on it.

Urban Gardini I seriously recomend you to get new tracks for it 'cos the ones in the kit is magical. Look at 'em n' you'll see that the end connectors is level with the track pads so the track pads is connected to each others by magical force.
