Older Radish Models....
« on: September 04, 2009, 01:23:53 pm »
Now that I've discovered the way (after Chris Edward's Tutorial!!) to post pictures, some older models from the Campion "Radish" builds....an old lot really.

First "up" is a 1/48th AMT F7F-3 Tigercat in Israeli markings, and an unusual Israeli scheme....well, it would be, wouldn't it?

Glad to see you've figured out the photo posting Terry!  :cheers:

Israeli Tigercat looks very nice. :thumbsup:

You've got a lot of time to make up for with pictures  ;D

Nice looking Tigercat.  I like the way you solved the "tail heavy" issue.

For the paraffin-burning lobby, a Royal Thai Air Force F-20A.
Made from the Monogram kit about 15 years ago, and it's still around.

Cheek!!!!

Something from the Imperial Roman Navy, a Germanic Hun Mercenary Corsair, made from the Hasegawa 1/48th F4U-4. This no longer exists....forgot what happened to it...probably broken at a show, or in storage. Made in around the late'80s, early '90s, and painted with Tamiya Sky, weathered with various mediums, but mostly pencil. Markings from stock Italian Insignia and, I think, 1/32nd Starfighter numbers, etc..

I remember this beast.  a Stunning bit of work.
I always hope for the best.

experience has taught me to expect the worst.

Size (of the stash) matters.

An armoured thing now. The "Imperial Roman Scenario" included all sorts of things, such as Aztec Wars, etc..
This is an Apache "Piranha" patrolling the Aztec/Apache Border.
Made from the Italeri 1/35th kit in the mid-90s, with just minor additions, such as shields from discs of plastic card. The figures are by Dragon.

No, but I might now. :thumbsup:
I've got some other "Indian" armour, and I'll post it later in the proper section!!
Lots of other stuff too, South African AWB, etc., and lots more on the way.
Also some Imperial Roman stuff and "Guns of the South" Confederate M.42 Duster!! :party:

Mein gott im verfickten himmel!!!

That Tigershark's camo is sharp enough I think my beard just got shaved from here!  Love the paintwork you've done, on all the stuff, especially that Tigershark and the Apache Piranha - that just looks WICKED.
