Models April 2019

new model i got in April a load of 135th afvs

Picked up a couple of bits this month just going to run through them quickly.

Two Messerschmitt ME 262 models.

One being the Airfix 1/72 ME 262A version that I want to make a little video on. But more on that later. I do absolutely love this aircraft, a feat of engineering, not to mention a beautiful plane to look at.

So I have also picked up the 1/32nd scale Revell Night Fighter ME 262B Version. Along with that I have picked the Eduard photo-etch aftermarket parts.


I have never built a plane on this scale so this should be interesting to see the kind of detail that I can achieve with this one. I will be doing a fair bit of research for this so think I will tackle it next autumn / winter.

I got the Tamiya 1/35 German Sd.Kfz. 7/1 8 ton Halftrack w/20mm Flakvierling, not sure if it is a rerelease! It just looks so cool, I have always had my eye on it and when it came up for under £20 I leapt at the chance. This one is definitely going on the stash.

Miniart 1:35 – Jagdpanzer SU-85 ( r ) w/Crew BUY IT HERE

Academy 1:35 – M551 Sheridan Gulf War Re-Release BUY IT HERE

The AU-F1 and M551 Sheridan are going to the stash but I want to smash out the Panzersphwagon once I have finished off the Apache and the Harrier. Hopefully, I can get the Jagpanzer started as a slow burner, again a vehicle that I love.

Apart from the models I also picked up a couple of tools, one being a new airbrush, after the total cluster-fuck with the varnish on the Apache. It is a brand called KKMoon. They also seem to make CCTV cameras, SO! But for under £15 and the fact I only want to keep it for varnishing and priming, I’m not too bothered. I have read a couple of reviews that seem positive, so fingers crossed.

JLC Razor Saw wooden handle
JLC Razor Saw For Scale Model Making, Looks Good And The Handle Looks Beautiful


I got this razor saw, I have been watching a few videos on youtube regarding panel lines and a small razor saw seems to be the weapon of choice. I picked up this JLC one over the CMK just because of the wooden handle, I think it will last a little longer.

Talking about panel lines I order some photo etch templates for scribing panels and lines etch. They are coming from China so may have to wait a while to try them out, but they look pretty awesome.

Finally, I got a bottle of AK Interactive acrylic primer, I have been using black spray paint up until now, which has meant spraying outside of the house as it stinks, also it is weather reliant. So I wanted to move across to something that I could use in my airbrush and use in my house. AK hasn’t let me down so far! So their primer seemed the logical choice.
