    Elefant

    I started this about 8 mo ago worked on it on and off, but now that I'm retired I got working on it more. If anyone has suggestions on how to apply mud and dirt I would be very appreciative as I am a beginner. I will post more pics as I progress.

  4. I do like building 1/76. Of course the Airfix treads were like spagetti, so I weighted them down for a couple days. The gun barrel had no hole for the shell to exit so I had to drill it out. There was a lot of flash on the parts to clean up.

    Brick walls

    Thanks for the response Ed. It is going to be a WWII wall for a diorama. It is 1/35 scale. It will be a wall with a small hill behind it and cobblestone street in front. On the street will be my Elefant that I have been working on for the last 6 months. Tim
  6. I am looking for a model of the Leahy-class guided missile frigate. Any of them will do they are all about the same. I was stationed on the USS Reeves homeport Pearl Harbor Hi. I know that Monogram made the 1/415 8296 Monogram DLG-16 USS Leahy Guided Missile Frigate. Thanks

    1/72 King Tiger

    I had a lot of fun building this. The only gripe I had was the treads, they are hard to work with because out of the box they are like pretzels. I painted it in the colors of the 503 Abteilung, in Normandy 1944. All comments will be helpful.

    Problem

    I have a problem. I aquired some dioramas from a friend he lived next door to a gentleman that was a modeler, a very good one at that. The man passed away and his familt left his dioramas outside we live in Vegas so the heat and rain did a number on most of the dioramas warped the wood. So I have a lot of men, buildings, and vehicels. I would like to know what you guys think should I use them to rebuild dioramas. These will be used for personal use only. I dont know what to do........ I have included a pics of his work.
