Def model tires for 1/48 Steyr.

I got 1/48 kits during the New Year Eve and will build Flakvierling with Steyr soon. Both kits would be detailed with Hauler photo-etched sets and Steyr gets Def model tires. Full review of these will be published on Armorama.com soon and so far I have two images for you.

Ding-Hao releases arrived.

I got the 2 first releases of Ding-Hao, spin off from AFV club/Hobby Fan. These are dedicated to Yugoslav armour and are based on M3A3 Stuart tank with either Flakvierling 38 or Pak40. Both were conversions done at the end of 1944.

The content of the boxes is impressive - all necessary AFV club parts, extensive photo-etched parts (gun shields, etc) and resin items necessary for fitting the main armament to the hull. Pity they have vinyl tracks included, but I already have the replacement - tracks from AFV club. Will start building them as soon as I have the Irish Churchill finished.


See my quick in-box review on Armorama.com for more images of M3A3 with Flakvierling content. 


And here is a corrected page of instructions!

T-34-76 progress

After adding some changes I primed and basecoated the model. 4BO colour comes straight from AMMO Soviet Camouflage set. 

Markings were painted with oils.
