Hello from the North of England
Posted by Ancientmariner on Saturday, December 23, 2017 2:22 AM


       Just joined the forum.Been modelling for over 50 years now,but usually ships and aircraft.Earlier this year,I started building 1/35 scale armour models.Up to date, I have built four tanks, Tamiya Chieftain,Tamiya Sherman,Trumpeter Challenger 2 and a Academy Sherman Calliope. Next model on my bench will be the Tamiya King Tiger Ardennes offensive mode. I also have three RC Tanks, Taigan/Torro Tiger 1,Sherman and a King Tiger.

Still in the learning stages with armour models, as this is my first time building armour,so I hope that I can pick up some tips.
