  1. Up next is a German panzer 4 ausf H. I'm pretty sure this is the H variant although it's labeled as G on the box This model is from the maker ZVEZDA I haven't made any models from this company before but they looked pretty good and had decent reviews so I thought I'd give one a go. Pictures of the box. Whitch is more of a cover as all the model is in a plain cardboard box inside this Pictures of the parts and frames.
  2. This should be a reletivly quick build. A nice little Pak 40 I haven't done a ambush or AT gun before so should learn some things on this. Model is made by Tamiya
  3. “German sitting civilians” (1:35 Miniatures series) MiniArt Catalogue #38006 Available from any good model shop Miniart is continually adding some interesting items to their catalogue and tis set is an example of that. Here a set a civilians Germans, all sited but in different body postures. I really don’t understand why Miniart gave the name German sitting civilians as they could only putted “Sitting Civilians” because I can´t tell the different of these faces to some French civilians for that same age and time. This set is on a typical MiniArt style box of thin cardboard with openings either end and a nice box art on the front of the box. The back of the box is where are instructions (kid of instructions) and colour profiles. The full set of 5 figures is made by 5 light grey sprues of the same size, and one small piece of paper which has some old newspapers and magazines for the use with the figures. The latest figures I reviewed from Miniart was a bit disappointed about the soft details and lots of flash (see here), that as not usual on Miniart figures. So I was quite expecting for some news figures. And just for the first look they look much better, again on the top quality. Starting with the clothes I think that are quite well reproduced with some good detaisl. Not as sharp and clear detail as resin but still, very good for plastic. The type of clothes looks adequate to the 1930/1940 and to see the accuracy of that you just need to google it. I really enjoyed the tie of both men and the details on their jacket. For the women my only fear was the reproduction of the fur of the jacket of the lady in the left side of the box (front view). Well check it, nothing to fear from as its not good as resin but is quite good indeed. The posture and body positions are quite convincing and very well reproduce making all the figures in a natural pose which is a quite hard task to do. The hands of all figures are extraordinary made and give the full bonus to these fantastic figures. Now the impossible in injection plastic: faces. Well not so impossible. I`m impressed with these faces of the civilians. Still resin heads are a extra to consider if you have the funds. In my sample, all the faces have a little mold seam on the side but is quite gentle so its easy to remove. The facial expression is quite good and I really enjoy it. For the first time, I can say that you, the have limited budget, do not need to get some hornet head for these. Their sad look, alongside the more intrigued and curious look and the attention look (maybe from Gestapo??) are very well made. The last but not the least, a little paper sheet in good color registration with maps and cover magazines. Conclusion: The figure set is quite comprehensive giving the modelers endless possibility for use in dioramas or vignettes, is the complete set is just one of the figures and all that for the price (at least in my usual store) of a resin figure. However a few limitation: the sitting position for all the figures and the winter clothes. Very well done Miniart! Very highly recommended Francisco Guedes Our thanks to MiniArt for the review samples. Available in any good model shop.
  4. http://www.wingnutwings.com/ww/product?productid=3112 So what do you think guys, is this the before mentioned DFW or something absolutely new? Maybe Albatros C.III, C.I? Dave surely knows, but will not tell even under hard interrogation or torture
  5. Hello everyone, This is going to be my first build project here on LSM. I need a break from Aircraft, so thought I'd do an OOB Military build. I picked this up at a very reasonable price, so thought it wouldn't be too much of a shame to build it OOB. This is the later version of Karl, which utilised a different suspension set up from the earlier version. Both versions have the ability to raise and lower their suspension, and Trumpeter give the option of modelling either kit in the raised or lowered position. This kit is also kitted by dragon, but according to some reviews on the 'net, the Trumpeter is the better kit as far as content and detail is concerned but it is also a far more complex build, so beginners or someone who wants a "quick build" should maybe go with the Dragon kit. This is the box top. The kit number is 00209. Notice the wording on the box top, it states some kit features... 840mm long with 1251 parts!! Upon removal of the box top you will find Trumpeters normal great packaging, with many boxed parts and bubblewrap or foam protecting fragile areas of the sprues. The total number of sprues is a massive 30, plus upper and lower hull, tracks and no less than 8 rail sections. Just look at all that plastic!! Will I start this today...maybe???
  6. For anyone building the Me 262 here is a cool video on YouTube of close up shots all around the engine. This might help detailing your engine. Paul
