Some recent ish armour builds
« on: November 17, 2017, 02:33:26 pm »
These are both 1/72nd scale, The V-150  is the ACE one that come out not that long ago, and the Merkava is the Hobbyboss mk4 version. The Merkava went together really nice, and was a good quick build. The V-150 surprised me in that I hardly swore putting it together, maybe tourettes is frowned upon in the Ukraine, anyway it went together really well, and the detail on it is pretty sharp too. I can recommend them both for sure.

Nice work mate.

I'm seriously thinking of getting some 1/72 armour as there's some interesting subjects nowadays. Hannant's are advertising some nice Hungarian WWII subjects and I have a soft spot for Hungary for some reason ??

Having built a couple of LAV-150's, & having two more plus ... um ... three Merkava's (a IID, a IIID & a IV LIC), so far, in the stash, all in 1/35, I must say I'm impressed with your work in micro-scale armour! :thumbsup:



Oh, & a Vietnam era M706 plus two M1117's also in the stash that I almost forgot. :-\




I really must start to build faster! :o

Thanks for the comments guys, there is some nice stuff slowly trickling through in styrene, especially Russian modern stuff, which is a favourite of mine. Cheers Wombat, as such words from an armour master like your self are high praise indeed.

I'm not a fan of modern tanks but I love the V150.
 :thumbsup:

The ICM 1/72 kits are detailed, if intricate builds which so far have fitted together well.

Nicely done.  :thumbsup:

I wonder if they're going to do any other turret options for the V-150? There were loads in real life.

I am hoping so, as their blurb about future releases, showed other versions. I will certainly get some.

Having just discovered IBG's aircraft models and their quality I now know they have a large range of WWII softskins and armour in 1/72.  Some really interesting Hungarian armour in particular. I am tempted  :angel:

Lovely pair. :thumbsup: I especially like that  V-150.

I've got a good handful of small armour, mostly WWI.  Not sure why but I tend to stick to real world with them, my only armour whiff is a Berlin Saracen.
I don't think it's nice, you laughin'. You see, my mule don't like people laughin'. He gets the crazy idea you're laughin' at him. Now if you apologize, like I know you're going to, I might convince him that you really didn't mean it.
