It dawned on me that all of us failed to mention the hobby/x-acto knife.You'll definately need one of these.Aside from a brush,it's the most important modeling tool.
After finishing my Group Build project I sorted through my half-built models and decided to finish off my Bloch MB 152. It is going quite well, after mending all the bits that got broken while in storage.
I have been asked by my wife to make a Cheiftain tank painted up to represent the one she drove (with a little figer representing her in it). Unfortunately, I can't find a kit! Only Airfix seem to make a 1/72 Cheiftain (and I suspect it is 1/76) and none of my local model shops have one in stock!
I'm going to have to use Hannants, which means I'll have to buy extra kits (minimum order for posting is £8, Cheiftain kit = £4.99). Oh what a shame
Just wait till you try to find a good driver in that scale.
I built the AirFix Chieftain.It's actually a very nice kit.You should have no problems doing an awesome job on it.
I built one about 10 years ago - I'm looking forward to making a much improved version!
You could of course buy it here instead, but then you wouldn't have any excuses for buying the extra kits.
Here is my finished MB152:
Nice French fighter.
I'm working on a Dragon 1/35 scale Nashorn. I've been working on it off and on for about 15 years.
Should get it done by ??????
Nice Bloch. Is that SMER/Heller kit?
I see the legendary KP stand on the photo ( some of my first models were KP's - really first autonomously destroyed model was VEB-Plasticart Yak-40 airliner when i was a kid ).
It is the old Heller kit, but with a 'Falcon' cockpit glazing. Quite a nice kit although the engine attachment is very weak. And yes, its an old KP stand taken from my spares box - well spotted
Nice model, Ricky!
And good to see I'm not the only one on a nostalgia trip these days.
Heller was actually my favourite brand when I was a kid. I used to buy my kits at a glassware store. Remember the days when every bookstore or hardware store had a representable collection of kits for sale?
