June model making update

Well I thought it was worth doing a June model making update, especially as I’ve not posted since April.

If you are on Facebook, I have a page to run along side this blog https://www.facebook.com/JOTCW. It tends to get update on a regular basis, and is growing quite well.

Revell 1/72 PT-76B

I’ve been slowly working on the Revell PT-76B light tank. The reason for the slow progress is due to two factors, not much bench time, plus it is quite a fiddly build.

Lots of very small parts to be added to the hull etc. These need plenty of time to set before man handling to kit for the next stage.

It is also a first for me, as it contains Photo Etch parts (PE). Not many, but a good starter if you have never used them before, like me!

Today (Saturday 25th June), I have managed to prime the running gear, turret, tracks and lower hull. The plan is to finish the upper hull tomorrow ready for priming.

Once I’ve finished, I may attempt the ICM 1/72 BTR60 plus have a use for my Elhiem 1:72 Soviet Motor Rifle Troops.

More June model making updates

Something that is not Cold War related. A 54mm metal figure of a Apulian Chief, 4BC, by Romeo Models.

Picked this up at the Yeovil Model Show. As they say ‘a change is as good as a rest’, plus I have enjoyed painting figures in the past.

I’d love to do some Cold War related figure painting. Sadly the choice for this era is quite low. Lots of Vietnam war figures, but not much in the way of NATO or Warsaw Pact figures. Quite a few in 1/35 by all the usual suppliers of that scale. Maybe I’ll have to go down that root for Cold War figure painting?

Anyway, the figure is primed and ready for the fun part.
