  1. Hi guys maybe you haven't noticed but soem of the packages of this french bottles water firm you can buy 1/35 scale are not correct, they don´t have neither the right size nor the design. In the next months I will design the most usual bottled water packages you can find in the actual war conflicts zones so you can download and print them being sure that they are correctly designed and close to the real ones. Don´t ruin your models using unexisting, anachronistic, out of scale, etc accesories. As you do with your models check that the accesories: -Exist -It´s from the date/era you
  2. I always have liked this Little and versatile vehicle, it was used in all the WWII fronts by many countries. I usually find Tamiya models very somere and simple, they are great for begginners but they seem a bit toulike to average modellers. Their old 1/35 Bren carrier is one of the worst models in their catalogue, full of simplified and oversized parts, and those vinyl tracks that have nothing to do with the real ones. Unfortunatley, although more tan 30 years have passed since then their recent 1/48 version of the vehicle is not better. I didn’t want to start a detailing work as the model

  4. Hello Mark, many thanks for your kind words. About the machine I Took it off on purpose, just to ruin a bit the simetry. I cut off the gun and drilled the ball, then painted the inside black. Cheers
  5. This is the Skoda vehicle built in 1920s of which only 12 units were produced until it got replaced by the PA III version. The models is very easy to build with just a few resin parts that have no defects at all. It builds enterely in a few minutes if you use ciano. I chosen the German scheme for the military police that used all of the captured "turtles" in Czech service after the invasion. For the painting I used the cenithal light system in 3 steps, first an overall black layer. Then a very light grey filter form above Then a blueish grey filter form
  6. Many tanks guys, I love WWI machines and I'm willing to see Takom's big bro.

  9. Hi Chris, thank for your words. Are you aware of some issues about this model? the interior color indication is wrong, so is the warning signs printed in paper, they are written in Pashto, one of the main languages in Afghanistan....where no Bradleys are deployed.
  10. Hi Mark I agree, this one and other brand new vehicles seem to me something taken out from some sci-fi movie. Cheers Federico

    AEC Mk.I

    I had to choose which AEC kit form Miniart should I start first and I thought that the Mk.I version was pretty atractive so here it is. The model is a jewel, plenty of fine details, photoetched, and many delicate parts that will ensure a crispy detailed model, outside and inside. The different colours primers are perfect to continue with the lights and weathering without having to apply a second "base" layer. If I had used a neutral grey primer I would have to airbrush a second paint layer of the proper colour. Pigments are essential for a dusty and weathered finish.

  24.
