    Better cut those wheels off the sprue and give them a good sanding along the perimeter, or you won't be able to get rid of that moulding ridge :)

    Stick them on a toothpick for painting.

    Cheers chaps, it's straight from the box, I could have added details like indicators & the platform around the hatch on the cab roof but I just wanted to have fun & relax glueing & painting.

    Are you expecting that many casualties when playing with yourself?

    Not sure if it fits with the 'kits' aspect, but I recently found my old ships in a box in the loft...







    Rooting through the attic I found a tiny plastic Russki as painted by me, aged about 10, this amazing survival from the 'banger incidents' of the late 80's combined with a year of getting back into kits after about 20 years brings me to the request;

    I know i'm not the only one on here who has shamefacedly scraped away at little plastic things from time to time so whether it's recent or from a dim and distant past, good, bad or indifferent, any chance of a shufti?
    Get your kits out? :

    Cheers,
    Adam.

    Are those 1:1200 waterline ships? Once a friend asked me to repaint part of his 1:1200 collection, so I dumped them overnight in paint stripper. Next day while cleaning them I had that sinking feeling: the hulls were white metal but the turrets, cranes, masts, etc were PLASTIC! These were all melted down beyond any redemption!!!

    Took me weeks to rebuild those from scratch!
