iModeler Review: Trumpeter 1/35 Tiger I late w/Zimmerit (09540) – Part 2

Building the kit is very straight forward – after all, the Tiger is more or less a box with some doodads attached to it. I followed the first steps of the instructions and attached the swing arms and the final drive plates. These plates will [...]

iModeler Review: Trumpeter 1/35 Tiger I late w/Zimmerit (09540) – Part 1

Let’s face it: The Tiger I has to be one of the most kitted tanks in the history of scale modeling. A quick check on the interwebs shows the impressive number of 96 different kits from at least 14 different manufacturers, and we are only talk[...]

Thunder Model Scammell Pioneer Tank Transporter – Build Review, Part 3

As usually, I started by gluing all the multi-part assemblies to speed up the process of seam filling and not have to wait for filler to dry later on. There are quite some seams to deal with, but as fit is very good all filling could be done [...]

Thunder Model 1/35 Scammell Pioneer Tank Transporter – Build Review, Part 2

As usual, there are a couple of subassemblies which need to be built up and painted before proceeding any further – in our case this will be the engine, the cab interior, the winch, and the trailer mount. Engine assembly is straight forward w[...]

Thunder Model 1/35 Scammell Pioneer Tank Transporter – Build Review, Part 1

Last weekend I visited Scale Modelworld at Telford for the first time ever. Together with Martin (@editor) we roamed the halls, took in all the wonderful work on display, and in between all the “ohs” and “ahs” I had time to chat with Libor fr[...]

As with the rest of this kit, this is a very intricate assembly with lots of parts. What you end up with, however, is an articulating suspension, which makes it ideal for dioramas. As mentioned before, you have the choice between two differen[...]

Miniart 1/35 T-54B Early Production – Build Review, Part 2

After we took a look at what’s in the box it is time to start building. But before you dive into the maze of sprues, I would suggest some preparatory work: - Take your Tamiya Tape and stick some of it to every sprue, labeling it with the accord[...]

Miniart 1/35 T-54B Early Production – Build Review, Part 1

If you have been an armor modeler for some time, you might have gotten used to certain givens – an abundance of German subjects, a certain lack of soft-skin vehicles, or an ever increasing amount of parts in the box. At least that’s how it use[...]

Airfix 1/48th P-40B Warhawk Build Review, Part 2

After having had a look at what is in the box in part 1 (), it is time to actually start building this thing. And we all know how this goes, right? You don’t say. Anyway, the cockpit goes together quite well, if you keep in mind to first chec[...]

Airfix 1/48th P-40B Warhawk Build Review, Part 1

There have been a couple of attempts at the early P-40 in 48th scale over the years. The old Monogram kit and the Academy one have been around for quite some time. More recent offerings from Trumpeter and Bronco combine state-of-the-art, 21st-[...]
