And after waiting for a bit I finally got the replacement speed brakes from Hobby Boss - great service.

Wow 2x builds.  I'm a sucker for the A7.

Great water work.  Do you think this is possible?  How would you go about it?  I have the Trumpeter fire engine kit.

Thanks,

John

John, those are 3 very nice looking gbuilds.

I can't see Steve's at the minute, will check those out tonight. But i know his water builds are top notch. I have a German amphibious tank i want to going into a river, so i am keen on ideas on how to do the splashing water.

Thanks John and Bish.

John, Hmm, I'd have to give that one some thought....It might involve resin.

Bish, here is my PT-76 in a river I made in 2018, it may give you some ideas. My techniques have changed some since.

Just got round to checking Steves out, impressive water effects once again Steve. And as much as it pains me to say it about an Imperial vehicle, thats very nice. If only i could do that to a Spitfire.

As some of you know, I have just joined the forums in the last week or so.  Having just got back into model building, I don't have 3 "last models" to share, but here's my first attempt at it after a break of many years.  Nowhere near the caliber of most of the models here, but for my first try after being away so long, I was happy with it.  Just trying to learn all the new things out there WRT paint these days.  Thank goodness for forums like this, and you tube!  So without further adooo, here's my 1/72 Hawk SBD Dauntless....

Rick, seeing that Hawk SBD put a smile on my face. Many happy childhood memories are wrapped up right there in your build!

Thanks John. I finished the BTR last spring/summer, so it’s been awhile. The X-Wing in late Fall when I was going stir crazy at having all my stash aNd supplies pretty much packed to move. All my other builds last year were armor, so that’s why I kicked off this year with the A-7.

Stick, those are just stunning builds Surprise

Templar, you have some great looking stuff as well. I love the little cargo truch and the Olympia looks fantastic in rust camo intsead of it's usual white and spar color.

I can remember just two of the last models I attempted to build back in the late 80's before I stopped building them.

  • 1:35 LAV-25 Piranha
  • 1/18 Scale APC Vehicle (Aliens)

I remeber melting a long section of the plastic tree in order to create the long antennas for the LAV

Templar - is that an Opal Blitz?  Built a 1/72 version ages ago.  Very nice.  I've always thought the BMP was a cool looking vehichle nice work.  And man, that Olympia has seen better days ;)  Really nice work on the heavy weathering

Mark - Seaview looks super - really like the base.  That voyager probe is on my wish list and it looks like you got the PE kit as well - fantastic.

Thanks,

John

Sorry Dog don't know about the Blitz. The Olympia was a attempt to copy a sculpture of it that I saw in Ca. Just hit me as a static object subjected to time.It's posted. Thanks for the comments.
