  1. Thanks Rob. I have to admit the winner for me so far is the Thunder Models kit.
  2. So, I finally got something done this weekend on both of the engines. I went slightly off instructions, as you do, so that I could compare the engines as sub assemblies. There are quite a few differences but I will discuss each engine on its own before moving to the comparison. The IBG Engine. The IBG Engine is spread across a couple of sprues (G and H) along with 2 pieces from the PE Fret, notably a bracket and the cooling fan. It's a pretty simple affair and on its own it looks like quite a decent shot at an engine. However, once compared to the Thunder Models engine it doe
  3. Thanks Rob, Yes saw that Thunder Models are doing more of them. I also bought the new radiator from their website for 1 Euro. It seems from their website that they were quite close to IBG at one point but now upset that IBG had the Heavy Breakdown Tractor planned and didnt say anything. Still for me a little choice goes a long way.
  4. Hi all, It's been a while, busy year last year. I got both of these kits for Christmas and so I thought I would do a comparison build on the tractor itself. I know there are a few differences, not least that one has a trailer and the other has a load carrier with a crane in it but I thought it might be of interest to some. I also got the Army Wheels in detail book and its pretty good so I will be using that for reference and maybe some detailing if I can fit it in. I doubt it'll be a fast build, may take me all yea for all I know as work is busy and once the flying s
  5. Thanks Rob. Yes needs a few touchups and changes. Jsut fancied something a bit different. May do their Normandy Airborne guys next. Really nice kits and look great together.
  6. Well this guy I thought was complete but after the photo's have noticed he needs a bit more work. Mitches Military Models do full figures and busts and I love their work. Last year I picked this and a few others up and this is the first one I have tried. Been a long while, over 15 yeras, since I did any figures but really enjoyed this one so going to do a few more. Figured (no pun intended) that he is an LSM given his scale. So what did I notice post pictures? Well he needs eyebrows, his T-shirt is too gloss and needs to be flattened down and I'm not 100% happy with the eyes or th
  7. Hi Rob, The figures came with the kit. Was one of the perks of getting them on release. Not sure if they are available separately Im afraid. J.
  8. Nothing sadly. Work manic and not been anywhere near the man cave for a long, long time
  9. Only built the lower hull of mine, up to about issue 46 even though I have up to issue 81 too. Will be watching with interest as I think my life will be busy with work for at least the next few months
  10. Very nice mate. Like it a lot Love the figure and the grass mat too
  11. Mine arrives tomorrow Cant wait now, thanks Jim
  12. Very nice. Love that grey and red scheme too.
  13. I have an M3D. Good but could be better. Was only $399 plus postage to the UK though. Thinking I need a better one soon and will probably go with an Ultimaker or something like it. Great fun though, not that Ive ever printed anything useful for modelling. Mostly printed stuff for my Phantom 3. J.
  14. Thanks Dr_GN. Thats all very useful thanks and very much appreciated J.
