Jos Jansen Excellent Jim....(welcome back ;) )

James C Cheers Jos ;)

It's been good to get rid of some older builds completely and re-photograph the ones I've decided to keep. Also a few new builds to add as well. :)
31. May, 08:03
Neuling Looks very good! Maybe a little bit of red dust on the tracks and wheels? Interesting info on the kit.
31. May, 17:08
James C Thanks mate and yeah, I think your right. The red is probably a little too red in places like the lower hull.

Ole Andersen This was the first 1/35 scale kit I ever build. Must have been around 1973.
15. November 2018, 12:44
Ben M It is fun to rebuild old friends!
15. November 2018, 14:35
Ole Andersen True, but I don't think I'm going to build an M551 again, even though I have seen that a new kit is out.
15. November 2018, 17:53
Ben M What will you start with do you think?
15. November 2018, 18:58
Ole Andersen I think I'll give the Zvezda Tiger I a try. Might even be this weekend. It'll be that one, since my workbench is a total inch high clutter/mess in everything else that model building, and I therefore have to sit at the dinning table. That Tiger is not a very important kit in my stash.

What are you currently working at?
16. November 2018, 06:42
Ole Andersen I have several unfinished kits in my stash. The Dragon Wagon. The Skybow WC-63. The CCKW from Italeri, and I have also made also been working a tiny little bit on the Academy Tiger.
16. November 2018, 06:47
Ben M I'm working on a space 1999 eagle and just starting on a Ryan STM-2 floatplane in Netherlands East Indies service. After that, who knows? I have some armor and aviation in my stash, and I have decided not to acquire anything more for a while. I also do model train stuff.

Make's me laugh. If it does not rain it pours. Tamiya has a new Sheridan coming as well. Tamiya is Vietnam and RFM looks to be desert storm. It happens so often you want a new kit of a tank and wait years to get it. Then several companies do one at the same time. So I say get both Tamiya and RFM and dump Academy's so no filling motorization holes in the hull.

Honest opinion from Tamiya lover; they need to change the way they select models subjects .. non of the current hot topics were covered by Tamiya, the thing that allowed Trumpeter, Takom, and MiniArt to penetrate the market (good on them).
2. September 2018, 00:08
Matthias Weiss Agree partially with you. Tamiya's new ones are mainly replacements for old tools. As we know Tamiya there latest releases were all superb in detail & molding and I believe this one will be as well. And - they are nit following Trumpeter, Meng, Takom, Miniart, etc. but release some models no one else offers in similar quality. And btw, found this one in the hot topics list!

Greg Wise Great job! I have the same kit almost finished, but still need the aftermarket tracks.
12. May 2015, 10:56
Matthias Weiss Great work, well done!
12. May 2015, 12:48
Lucas C. Thanks, guys!. Greg--yeah, the aftermarket tracks are unfortunately necessary for this kit, given how the kit tracks are not accurate and, being the rubber band type, don't replicate the sag well.
12. May 2015, 13:37
Vorya hidaryan Looks great !
12. May 2015, 14:15
Ulf Petersen Errors or not, that thing looks great!
I like the design of this tank (I remember the Sheridan from my quartet card game with tanks in the 1970s :) ) and the proportion between the turret and the huge barrel is a special eye catcher.
13. May 2015, 05:05
Burkhard D Looks great, the tracks are just icing on the cake. Shading is perfect.
13. May 2015, 08:48
Lucas C. Thanks, guys! I like the looks of the Sheridan, too. It has a futuristic look about it, especially the turret.

Roland Roth Hi, Roy!
The SHERIDAN I have seen live in my hometown (many, many years ago) - and somehow I want to build sometimes this tank. Please show more of your project!
10. March 2013, 08:00
Roy McKenzie Thanks guys. I have a lot of inprogress builds going :)
I also made some improvements to the 50 cal, I'l post some pictures of it. All the handles have been replaced with wire. I still need to paint the few stowage and decal. Then it's off to weathering.

Holger Kranich That sounds very good! Shall it be right the next one to build?
29. January 2013, 12:34
Markus Kutsch The Plastic Bench I think about it .Must do research (books) first.There are pics that show the Ontos with the Sheridan side to side (even the academy boxart does this ). :)

Markus Kutsch The Plastic Bench Ok!
I build the M551 .No problem.But the C-130 or the Heli. has to build someone else though iam no Aircraft modeller. :)
Next project for you and the Guys on the Wangerooge meeting...(scratch of course).I think there is none of both in 1:35.

I will have a look at the kit tracks first,if they are to bad i decide to buy the friul ones.
Friuls are great but not for "en Appel und en Ei"!
22. January 2013, 08:32
Holger Kranich Its heavy sometimes, the friuls make cost of the half of a kit! But the result is not to beat!
