M107 Self Propelled Gun Part 1

I have not posted on this blog in some time and its been even longer since I have posted about a plastic kit.

A lot has happened since then including moving into my own place which I have built a basement workbench in. This has solved one the main barriers to modelling I had which was having to pack my modelling stuff up from the dining room table after each session.

I have a number of part built kits to resume but I decided to start a fresh with this great kit. I have been looking forward to building it for a while as its something a little different from the usual tank. Its an Italeri kit sold as a Tamiya with some Tamiya figures so a bit of an odd one.

Being an Artillery piece with a massive gun should make for an impressive model when complete. So far I have built and painted the chassis and dozer blade. The blade can be moved which is demonstrated in the video below.

 

Tamiya 1:35 British Universal Carrier Progress

The Bren Gun Carrier is one of my favorite vehicles and its about time I got round to building one.

This is a nice kit as you get lots of accessories with it so you can customise the model to your liking. I have also been using this kit to practice improving the look of my figures.

There is still a lot of work to do here but its been an enjoyable build so far!

Ba-64 Armoured Car

This is a cheap model I ordered from emodels. It was made by a company in Moscow and the quality of the kit is particularly poor compared to the likes of Tamiya, Revell and Airfix. Still it was a quick build and I don’t think it turned out too bad. I particually like the slogans in Russian covering the hull.

The gunner is from a pack of Tamiya Russian tank crewman.
