It would be interesting to hear what models you currently are working on.

I like that Diorama. Very good Shamo.

Im currently working on 2 model ships.

1. Hasegawa 1/400 HMS Vanguard.

Britain's last and largest battleship. The model isnt too detailed, but I like the ship. It has the option to be motorized, and even comes with a motor, but I wont add it. The motor looks tacky, and I wont be bringing the ship in the bathtub to play with :mrgreen:

2. Shanghai Dragon 1/350 USS Ticonderoga

A Modern US missile cruiser. The kit is rather bad, but I like the ship. Ive made a horrible error in the hangar bay. Oh well, Ill keep that side against the wall.

Very detailed, but the kit is sooo damn frustrating AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH *dies*

The work of shaolin_shamo

Post by The Desert Fox » 18 Aug 2002 15:30

Yeah shaolin_shamo, I must say I am impressed with your models figures as well. Very nice work indeed.

In the local wargamming/hobby shop lately has appeared a number of figures such as these in period costumes of various periods. I have seen german paratroopers, U boat men, tankmen, USA marines, Waffen SS troops of various descriptons and American civil war figures etc. They are produced by a company called "Dragon".

My current projects

Post by The Desert Fox » 18 Aug 2002 15:47

As a wargammer with great interest in skirmish battles, and great interest in the eastern front. My project of current times as been my growing collection of 25mm lead Wehmarcht and red army soldiers.

I have completed a small company of about 40 odd germans, including riflemen, sub machine gunners, heavy machine gunners, officers and selection of vehicles. These vehicles include a truck and two kubelwagons. I am now working on their opponents the red army, with the intention of refighting some of the action within Stalingrad. A friend has a great collection of buildings to do this.

For those interested in some great wargaming figures, may I recomend "Black tree Designs". Below is their website.

I am building 1:48 scale D-Day diorama, yes I know it is probably most obvious topic, but I am adding some details that are quiet neat (using extra small Xerox printouts of maps, Hitler's portrait for german bunker; using real sand, possibly water - see how it will workout) picture coming soon

I'm building several 1/24 scale aircraft.

A Stuka, a Mustang, a 109E-3 and a Typhoon.

It really nice to have such big aircraft to work with. Really allows you to put heaps of little details onto them like oil stains and exhuast staining.

Also build 1/48 scale bomber like the B-17 and B-24.

Only real problem with all these bg models is where oh where can I put them all...

I do seem somehow to find places for them though my family is beginning to hate me because my house is beginning to look like the skies of Europe on a particularly hectic day of air action. :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

Im part way through Dagons Kampfgruppe Hansen figure.
Also have a part finished Tamiya 1/35 Late Tiger in the cupboard, had a nightmare doing the track links on that one.
Any advice for painting german uniform camo patters?
Especially oak and pea patterns?
