    Hello from the UK

    Post  Guest on Fri Feb 10, 2012 9:14 pm

    Hello everybody!
    My chosen subjects are soviet pre-WWII and WWII 1/35 scale models, and I will show you some pictures next time I build something decent. However, my main reason for being here is to bring you updates of coming releases of the excellent Live-Resin products. The manufacturer has asked me to give him a hand in spreading the word, as he is too busy producing his outstanding weapons and accessories to do it himself.
    Kind regards,
    dierk

    Finally I have another Ruskie ... I have been watching the Live resin items, only seen CAD images off and they look just awesome, those a 3D prints if not mistaken so all minute detail is captured ... till date have seen just modern US equipment what are the future plans, we need to see a decent Duschka maybe ...

    Looking forward to see your work ...

    Hope you like these.
    This was my first effort just over a year ago - I got a bit carried away with the rust Embarassed

    The dirt on this one could do with a bit of colour variation. The Duschka is a resin item by TANK (the same people who make Life-Resin)

    Here I was trying out a few (new to me) painting techniques, so it's mostly OOB

    More experimenting - this time I tried out both 'salt' and 'hairspray'

    Questions, hints and tips welcome.
    I've been trying to talk Live-Resin into making some WWII stuff, and hopefully this will happen in the future. In the meantime I make do with the ones made by TANK, which come a close second.
    I have seen some of the Live-Resin stuff, and they really are as good as the CAD pictures suggest.

    Sorry to disappoint you skyhigh - all my stuff is strictly ground-based...

    Hmm - looks like I have to resize some images Embarassed In the meantime here are some links to photobucket:
    ZIS-5V
    Lend-Lease Univ. Carrier
    Lend-Lease M4A2

    cheers,

    If I were religious I'd justify myself by saying 'God never intended us to fly, or he'd have given us wings' Very Happy but the reason is much more prosaic: I can fit more AFVs into the space one plane would take up. cat

    Well, Ivan how about a Russian 'Beutepanzer'? It's one of my WIPs that's currently on the back-burner:

    It's based on the old Italeri kit, which had been gathering dust in my loft for over 30 years, awaiting my return to the hobby.
    I have to put it away every now and again when the urge to introduce it to the nearest wall becomes too strong Evil or Very Mad

    It's going to be this one...I hope
