    Bandai 1/72 A-Wing

    Don't remember what I finished since the forum went down, didn't see this one posted on here, so figured I was safe as to not to repeat. Built out of the box, my first Bandai kit (won't be my last). Just changed the red to green. White is still kit plastic, just added washes, dirt, and such to...

    Takom T-54B

    One fender side complete. Nice to see the fuel lines included. Lost one of the smaller ones to the carpet monster, never to be seen again, so had to scratchbuild a replacement.

    Takom T-54B

    Chains? Not sure what you mean. If you mean chains like you would put around a tire to give you more traction on snow and ice...they definitely wouldn't have chains on a tracked vehicle for that use....they wouldn't last too long. Tracked vehicles normally have grousers for extra traction...

    Takom T-54B

    Masterclub are good, as are the ModelKasten tracks. Just happens that I have a couple of sets of the Friuli T-55 tracks here to use. As far as the KingTiger's go.....while yes the Meng KT will be cheaper, it also doesn't come with an interior like the Takom one does. While there will be...

    Takom T-54B

    Just a slight over hang on the front right (3rd pic). The way the kit goes together they did it as a module construction so they can get the most variants out of the least number of molds. The top of the hull is built from 3 pieces, so they can change out engine decks, front glacis, etc, etc. I...

    Takom T-54B

    Promised myself that I wouldn't start anything else new until I finished something. So much for that one, this was just calling to me. Takom T-54B, going to be doing it in the '73 Egyptian markings included in the kit. Since Takom uses a common lower hull for all of their T-54/55/Type 69...

    Sparmax AC-501X - Will this be suitable ?

    Hi there Uli, Welcome to the forum. The AC-501X is basically the TS-501, just set into a case, with a tank. The TS-501 is what I use (and sell as the Harder & Steenbeck compressors are made by Sparmaxx). Been using mine for years, and it works great. Decently priced, and all you will...
