Let's not forget ICM too, Peter.

I have a long list-and I'm sure almost everyone has such long list- of plastic vehicles, I long to buy-providing they're offered.
I would go for the TL.37 even if it comes out in 1/25th or 1/24th scale-although I only work in 1/35...
Same for the Steyr 440/640, the ATS-59G, the PTS and so on and so on...

I hope tomorrow is ripe with surprise

Hello everyone!
After a very long time, I have the pleasure to introduce you to the first Krankenwagen Kfz.31 (Steyr 640) work progress.
Here are some photos.











This is all for the moment. To be continued.

Hmm. With all the mesh on the inside, it looks more like a police Paddy Wagon than ambulance. Looking great so far Kalin.

Work in progress: added Live-Resin pouches, aftermarket helmet, and primed the figure. Click on thumbnails for larger image.

Going for the 'Jamie Lannister' look Peter?


Looks like it will be a very nice figure.

It's a very OLD figure...one of Airborne's first 1/35 sculpts. It's no longer for sale anymore.

Live-Resin really made a difference here and I think that's what Live-Resin intended with their 1/35 aftermarket figure gear kits---to resurrect old 1/35 figures anew.

And ready for paint:



I had to extend two tubes by 2 mm (visible top of cockpit), because I chose to proceed assembling the frame in separate pieces which led the front and rear being angled slightly incorrectly. Otherwise trouble free build, and also that's a small fix.

Engine compartment looks quite tight, but I think I'm able to reach everywhere with small brush. I hope...

Also finished up cleaning tire tread pattern, which went better than I expected. I'll post a photo about that in next update.

Hello everyone!
Here is some of my work progress. I managed to deal with the first row of sanitary wraps. In addition, the capot was formed with its characteristic view. That's it for now.








Good luck to all!

I've finished the Straussler V-4 ... had to be a quick build because time was pressing for the review.






For some reason I cannot add the photos to the official album. (Normally I manage to do so. Not sure what is going on.)

Very nice Andras. Is a very unique looking vehicle. remins of the tanks for the fantasy war gamers in some respects.

In regard the pics, did you try one pic at a time? A few people have had issues trying to upload more than one at once.

Cheers.

Well done Passi!
It really looks to be a top quality resin kit.Looking forward to see it painted!

Nice Sank(r)a, Kalin!
I'm sure these stretchers and all PE that comes with them, give you a hell of a hard time

Wow Andras!
What a small gem you've built!
Thanks for the review too-it is very informative!

Thank you for the kind words. The tank indeed looks unconventional; one of the reasons I wanted to build it. (The other is that it is the only Hungarian-made tank.)

I will try to upload them individually, thank you.

Well time is running out on me. This Legend Kit is soooo difficult to build. I spend more time researching where parts go, than actually fitting them to the model. There were a lot of warped parts, airholes, etc. Instructions show the completed sub assembly with all 15 parts in place... and the numbers quoted do not match part numbers.....

This is where I am up to:



The side plate armour is hung from a leaf spring arrangement, the Legend are warped, twisted and so fragile that I couldn't use them. I have had to scratch build them. Legend do not give you the lower section behind the plates, which will be very visible on the thin ones, so I have to make them up too. I also had to make several hangers (J shaped parts that fit on the outside of the front armoured section) as these were broken in the kit, as was the piece that goes in front of the Gun mount. This is where I am with these:
