  1. Hi Everyone, My first snow diorama... heck, first diorama... And I'm using some hobby snow I recently bought. I pressed some tank tracks in it to make an impression, but they're very hard to see. I've seen wildlife photos where shadows in animal tracks look like a pale blue. is there a consensus of what works to make detail in snow photographable? Or is it a question of trying to use shadows and photography to tell the tale? Thanks for your thoughts! Gaz

    How do you shade snow? What colors?

    Really...trying to get all of that color in all of those shade into snow... would be a hellacious task.

    Is this what kids that didn't get a PS IV for Christmas do for fun?

    Who can read Russian

    Hi everyone, I know the picture isn't the best. But Russian patriotic tank slogans interest me currently. Anybody wanna take a shot: Спасибо!

    OS2U Kingfisher by Kitty Hawk

    I had no idea there was a non-amphib kingfisher. Breaking those plastic 'wires' was a blessing in disguise. Sooner or later you'd have looked at em and thought: "They aren't to scale thickness".... "but it's too late"..... "or is it??"..... See.... you saved yourself an entire mental argument with yourself! Gaz

    Kitty Hawk F-5F done.

    Congratulations, Ern! Finished in only three months and 1 week. Quick-ish? Looks great, Buddy! Now pour a couple of strong ones and tuck into another build. Gaz

    Do you guys reckon that around the young lady and the T-34/85 are standing a bunch of chubby, grinning, middle-aged model builders trying to hide their stiffies?
  11. HI Everyone, Throughout my life I'd heard from my relatives about my bloodlines or ancestors, or what ever you want to call it. And sometimes I wondered just how true those stories were. Fellow Americans will know the name of Annie Oakley or Blackfoot Indians. My German ancestors have a family tree that dates back to 16th century Switzerland. Unfortunately I've never been able to obtain a copy of it for detailed study. My grandmother from the German side of the family is from Italy.... and I don't mind a bit of pasta, let me tell ya! Anyway... I've always felt curious about it. Last year Ancestry had a sale, so I thought I''d give it a go. What I learned was: I'm two thirds German. No surprise there. My next biggest part of my gene pool is French. Complete surprise! Mon dieu! The final dregs were Benelux/England (grouped together by Ancestry) And.... the final shocker: Russian! Who knew??? Never would have suspected it. Alas... No native American whatsoever. However, Annie Oakley is still a possibility since she was from Ohio, and the Pennsylvania and Ohio areas had a large influx of German immigrants in the 1700's. Any good Ancestry DNA stories out there? Gaz

    F-16 SUFA converted to SCANG bird

    A bit outta my playbook as I have no idea what SUFA or SCANG is. But I'll be watching and hopefully learning something. Gaz

    Kitty Hawk F-5F done.

    You guys know too much! I think if I new as much as you do, that I would give up buying models and just scratch build stuff.
  16. Monsieur, vous ne voulez certainement pas en déduire que nous, Français, ne pouvons pas laver nos véhicules blindés?

    OS2U Kingfisher by Kitty Hawk

    ONe of my early kits when I was a kid was a 1/72 Kingfisher. I'm certain to watch you build yours!

    Mig-9 LEM

    Stunning work, Martin! The only reason I can see for me not noticing this was that I must not have been coming to the site while you were actively working on it. Yep....just checked my profile... Oct 25. Very impressive! Gaz
  20. Did they possibly use dry track pins? I know a lot of WWII tracks had dry pins, but know little about French armor.
  21. The Char isn't a bad looking tank. I;ll be interested in seeing what you make of it.
