    Well I've just bought a set of 1/35 Tamiya US Soldiers. And spent last night sarting to paint them up. Took VP's advice and am using Acrylics and find them to be excellent!

    Go on then let's have a look.
    Maybe I should stick to figures, more my forte than armour.

    Well I've only just started so I'm not ready to show them just yet. But I will take piccies and display them here, no matter how badly they turn out!

    Is that a veiled reference to my melted JS-2 turret? :)

    Which figures are they GH? Gone for those German machinegunners for nostalgias sake? ;)
    If you get back into it check out Dragon's 'Gen 2' figures for the latest in plastic detail. I've only painted one 35th figure that I'm pleased with over the last 18 months, I have better luck with 1/16th scale ones.

    Owen, I can honestly say that you are SUPER paranoid!!!LOL Having seen some of the models made by some of the others I'll be very scared about putting up piccies as my ability is not great!

    VP it's of the 1943 US army Assault team. I'll check out the Dragon figures though.

    Guys the idea is to have fun, not really a big modelling competion. The mistakes are the best bit, try stuff you normally wouldnt do. its all about the fun of learning and the ones that go wrong you often learn more on.

    Most of the time is just luck anyway. Spend ages doing some and they turn out crap other times kits your just doing come out lovely. Can never tell, no geat skill involved. That elephant of mine was a good example the tracks are bit crap but I just love the model. it very simple, I just like the model. Very happy with it.

    Is it this lot you've got?

    Yeah thats them Owen!! And no I wont be trying to pass anything off. I'll show 'em warts and all. My problem is that I'm getting about 45 minutes each night to do them! They'll take a little while. I have ordered a Revell 1/35 M3A1 scout car which will go beside em quite nicely!

    Gerard, how are they going?
    Is it too sunny in Ireland to be stuck inside modelling?
    Or were they so bad you shoot them with an air-rifle and you've taken up stamp-collecting?
