T29

Out of the US heavy tanks prototypes of WW2, the T29 is one of my favorite due to its large rangefinders. This is also my first time building a Takom model and I enjoyed it very much. While building, I also heard the story of and IS2 named Reven[...]

1/35 Takom Jagdpanther and flat-bed railcar (Plattformwagen)

This is a 3-in-1 kit containing the tank, railcar, and railway tracks. So with just a few wee added extras and some figures it really came to life. I wanted to show a bit of life with the tank getting ready for transporting instead of it just be[...]

Takom 1/35 Chieftain Mk10 Track Bash

Well here's the latest instalment of the work on my Chieftain Mk10. I've put together and weathered the tracks before final fitting. I used the Vallejo Air acrylic wheel and track set. For the base colour I used Halfords red primer. I then used [...]

Takom FV432 Converted To FV432/30

For those who don't know, the FV432/30 was an FV432 converted by adding the turret from the Fox. A lot of people think that it was a Scimitar turret, but that is in fact wrong. The base kit is the Takom FV432 Mk2/1, with the Accurate Armour FV43[...]

Takom Chieftain Mk10 Berlin Bde

This was the final variant of the Chieftain to see service in Berlin before the wall came down. I'm currently working on the wheels, which Takom have moulded the outer set of the tires separately. I'm using the Vallejo Acrylic Wheels and Tracks [...]

Takom Chieftain Mk5c Berlin Bde

She is slowly coming together! I'm at the stage of trying to touch up the camouflage. I've already made a base to mount her on.

Takom 1/35 Canadian C2 Leopard Mexas

This is the Takom kit of the C2 Mexas. I've heard some not too complimentary things about the turret of the Takom kit. As I'm doing another (Meng) C2 but with the thermal cover to the turret and driving area, I decided to "donate" the unused tur[...]

Chieftain Berlin Brigade Camouflage Masks

For those of you who are interested in doing this complicated camouflage scheme, here is the web address of the company that makes them. The set is designed around the Takom Mk10, but with some adaptation works just as well on the Mk5, so should[...]

Berlin Brigade Chieftain Mk5C

At last some more progress on her! The painting is nearly complete. As you can imagine, even with the best paint masks (these were by Clayton Ockerby in Australia. If you're doing a Berlin Bde Chieftain, invest in a set!!!) you're going to get a[...]

Afghani Northern Alliance Tank Transporter Diorama

Here is a diorama showing the arrival of a Northern Alliance T-55 being welcomed by Afghani militia. The tank transporter is Takom’s MAZ-537, the T-55 is from Trumpeter. Figures on the vehicles are from Paracel Miniatures, the rest are modified [...]
