I intend to add some scratchbuilt details to the chassy.




Yeah, the chassis is looking slightly bare. Some axle housings, drive shafts, differentials, brakes, etc, etc, etc, ….

Axle housings, differential and brake boosters are provided as castings, same as pressure bottles for braking system.
Piping will be added to connect varous elements of braking system.
And some wiring.
Plus the inevitable drain and check plugs-where they are not present.
Front axle will need some additions too- the shock absorbers being the most important, but also elements from the steering.

Status on my ZIL-130 build:


Piping for air brake system added:



Fuel lines with scratchbuild coarse fuel filter and scratchbuild brake valve(needs to be installed-6 lines to attach):


Shock absorbers on front axle scratchbuild and mounted.
Still considering whether detailing the engine does make sense-it will not be visible at all.Will see...

Angel, What a great job on the Tee air line on top of that rear differential. I can never get mine that clean and square. Kudos!

Thanks Mike!

Spent almost an hour installing(fighting) the brake valve and attaching all 6 connections:


Added power lines from the battery:

Thanks Kalin!
Look forward to see the progress on your Steyr 640 Ambulance.

Jesse, interresting choice!
I never dared assembling and painting figures-Kalin is painting them for me(very convenient) ...
Look forward to see how your build unfolds!

I have a slight problem with the fit of the individual items, but I hope in the near future to share with you my progress.

Thanks Angel. Your build is coming along great! I am planning to put this guy into a diorama with 2 others fighting a dragon.

Hi all,
I will be building a Novorossian T-64a that fought in the battles around the Debaltsevo cauldron for this campaign. The main kit is the Trumpeter's T-64b, and I will be using a Miniart turret slightly modifying it to include smoke dischargers from CMK Kits. Some surgery will be needed to fit the turret.

Update on my ZIL-130 based SKP-9MV.

Not much resin work, but scratchbuilding:




I found some interior pictures....

Looks fantastic Angel.

I hope the doors open, or all that detail will be wasted!

PS I do not think there were too many Dragon fighting Italian Knights. I think they left that to mad Greeks, that were Roman soldiers... and somehow became Patron saints of many other countries ???? and of course, Ogres and Donkeys...

"Oh. You're a GIRL Dragon...…"

Chris and Raul. Nice choices guys.

I finally settled on the Legend Israeli Puma. I will re-acquaint myself with their resin kits before doing the M88A2 conversion. I want to do that real justice. This will be a challenge anyway.

Start pic.


The etch and wire is included in the kit, but the pic also shows the AFV Club tracks I hope will fit. The link and length resin ones look a bit of a challenge, as are the instructions - just 4 A4 sized pages, one of which is just a photo of the parts!

I just noticed no decals either.

That’s a lot of resin.

Oh yes it is. It has some hefty pour plugs too. The hull top piece alone weighs 127 grams trimmed of pour plug and fillets.


After posting I had a closer look at the kit and realised the lower hull is warped. First job, straighten that out.

Going to join in this campaign with a fellow that has been languishing in the stash for a few years



!/9 scale Modern Navy SEAL, Iraq, from Special Ops Models.

I've got four of their figures but haven't started one yet. The quality looks pretty good, and after removing the pour stubs, test fitting of the limbs and torso goes quite nicely. The aluminium rifle barrel and brass flash suppressor look really nice too.
There are a few casting bubbles on the underside of the magazine and carry handle of the rifle, and a couple of prominent but not egregious mould seams on the limbs to take care of. Apart from that, this should be a fairly relaxed build.

Time to get started for this campaign.

I am building the Warhammer 30k mechanic is Knight. Entirely in resin.

The main parts were constructed in just one evening. Next is a white base coat and a lot of clean up of the parts.
