  1. Hello guys These are the things I've been working on lately, as my hands shake more and more with the passing of the years I'm dedicating more time to the 3d designing and some less to the "real" plastic things. Anyway these designs are later 3d printed so I can see them built and painted in the finished models. I hope you like them.

  13. Hello friends Let me introduce you to the new military modelling magazine; Blitzscale. A project born between modellers who like to explore and look forward new styles in this hobby. While most of the availabe modelling magazines tend to show great models made by very well known modellers, this new magazine is a bit different; Blitzscale focuses in helping modellers with all kind of tips, gifts, etc. Every issue will be conceived this way, not only a showroom but a magazine you will read and use at your work space. The main articles in Blitzscale will show and explain step by step, all
  14. Hello friends I would like to show you one of the 4 models I built for the recent Blue Steel 5 AMX-13 in Lebanon book. The book is about how to use very simple painting techniques for novel modellers to achieve the heavily rusted and weathered look of military vehicles. For these articles I used the new Takom kits that has been an excellent relief for the ancient Heller one. Takom makes 3 different versions of this little tank and is announcing some new and interesting different versions, like the prototype with the M-24 Chaffee turret. Here are some photos of the model with the 75mm gun
  15. Hello guys I would like to introduce you to my new modelling book, FCModeltips 1, with 21 articles showing building and painting techniques, tricks and tips that will help you building your models in less time and with a high level finishing. In the last 15 years I have published many articles in many magazines and the ones that have been more successful were those that showed something new and useful. This is the spirit of this book, not showing a lot of pictures of finished models with long historical and technical texts but a good bunch of useful tips that you can use at your workbenc

  17. Having built the tractor version of the D7 I decided to start inmediately with the bulldozer version equipped with the LeTourneau WCK-7 blade, the newest kit of Mirror Models. The kits builds without serious complications, and I would just advice to test the coincidence of the parts and unions before gluing. The instructions book suggest us to beggin with the engine, nicely detailed, in which we will add the first photoetched parts that are included in the kit. Following with the transmission and the radiator we reach the tractor chassis to which we glue the engine, at thi
  18. CMP Ford F15 with breda 20mm Mirror Models 1/35 scale The CMP trucks were produced in Canada for the Commonwealth at the Ford and Chevrolet facilities and were deployed in every theatre of war within the armies of many nations. The recent Mirror Models kit represents one of these trucks captured in North Afrika by the Italian armyto which the y have added a breda 20mm gun at the back in the portee style. The model is made of a considerable amount of pieces of previous models so many of them will be left once finished. The instructions are a bit difficult to follow so is

    D7 tractor

    The D7 tractor has been produced since 1938 at the Caterpillar industries and is part of a family of which is in the medium type. Being produced in various configurations and models, it has been used both for civil purpose and in the army. The D7 tractor is capable of a 25ton work due to it's diesel de 200hp Cat 3306T engine. Miniart's model reproduces with high detail this classic tractor in it's more simple configuration as a prime mover. The model is made out of quite a lot of pieces and builds itself without complications thanks to a manual that shows the steps clearly and amusingly. Th
  20. Renault AHN gulashkanone This is the firs kit released by ICM of this curious French truck and it will be followed by more versiones. Lately ICM has improved the presentation of their kits with better and harder boxes and very easy to follow manuals that invlove very few pieces in each step. For my model I decided to depict a very anonimous truck that could be place mostly in every front from 1943 and that is one of the trucks that were fitted with a field kitchen to provide the troops. I painted the cargo bay with a sand primer. Then I used the Vallejo washes s

  22. Spain bought six Schneider CA-1 tanks to use at the Morocco war in 1922, some years later 4 of them had survived and sent to Madrid where they remained unused until in 1936 begun the Spanish civil war. The tanks that came form Africa received some minor changes; a gunhole at the front and another at the back, front light changed and added armor at the front made of a sewer cover. I wanted to make two of the models suggested in the decals set, the one in Morocco with the girls inside the numbers and this one I finally choose, one of the CA-1 used in Madrid against the nationalists

  24. Dear friends I´m not quite sure if this is the place to announce this, please forgive me if not and dlete this thread. I´m happy to announce that after two years of preparing many designs of scale accesories like declas, die cut leaves, natural texture prints, etc. I have finally opened a store where everybody can look for them. All my work is created with the same exigency that I have for my own models. Using caerful investigation and real photographic textures for a "closer to reality" look. I hope you like my new store, please visit at www.fcmodeltrend.com Thank you and enjoy of your
  25. In March 1922, 12 FT-17 were sent form Spain to Melilla to serve in the Morocco war. 10 of them had the round turret and had been bought some months before, another one had the octogonal turet and was adquired in 1919 for evaluation, the other one was the only TSF in Spanish service. 3 years late some of these tanks would participate in the firrst multi arms landing in history at Alhucemas. The Meng kit has been a welcome for the WWI and Spanish civil war enthusiasts, it´s a very nice model that builds easily and has many subtle details, it also includes some photoetched parts and me
