Hi, am just back off holiday and ordered these for my first ever group build.

I was looking for inspiration and found this photo, it was taken in Italy, but I am transplanting to Normandy.

I will park the Carrier to the rear of the house. Really looking forward to the build. I just have a few bits to finish on two others and then this is next on the list.

 

Cheers

Kev

Thanks for the comments guys, getting quite excited to give this a go. Long long time since I built any armour though :-)

Right, about time that a start was made at long last. 

Here are the sprue shots

This will be a slow build as I am also doing a 1/48 English Electric Lightning F1 at the same time. Hopefully I will keep on top of updates though.

Cheers

I can't delete the bottom pic for some reason, any ideas?

Pictures you load up and don't insert into the thread are automatically placed on the lower part the thread. You have to delete them before you hit the 'Submit Reply' button.
Anyway, the sprue shot is missing in the Universal Carrier section, so no harm done :D

Fascinating how few parts Tamiya uses to represent a Universal Carrier. My Riich kit seems to have the parts count times three, not a comfortable thought on such a tiny vehicle.

The gun went together fairly quickly and no real problems. I did have to use the seam tool quite a bit though as a fair few seam lines. The front plate is just dry fit at moment and a lot of the detail parts are to be fitted. I wanted an idea of the size so I can work the base out. It's a bit bigger than I thought it would be, but no worries :-)

Next step is to build the carrier to a point where i get an estimate of the size. The diorama may end up with just the gun and crew.

Cheers

Just a quick mock up, feel a lot better about the fit now. Both Tamiya kits, yet the gun parts need an awful lot of seam scraping but the carrier appears much less.

Positions not concrete as yet.

After watching a few vids on Youtube, i carried on with a bit more of the diorama. I am learning lots whilst doing it too. Very enjoyable so far.

Still lots to do, but it's starting to look like a bombed out building, which is what I'm aming for.

Cheers
