Merry Christmas & a happy new year to all you Kiwi's out there. (and everyone else of course)

Just wondering what projects everyone is into in the new year?

I've recently started Tamiya's Pz IV Ausf H, adding Cavalier Zimmerit, a Eduard barrel and a little photo etch and it will have Dragons Pz III/IV individual tracks when, and if, I get it finished.

Hi Neill

Happy New Year.

I am still battlinga way on 2004's project italerei Sturmtiger.

I have been working a lot on it in the last week or so.

The new kit for 2005 will be the Italerei Opel Blitz.

Your project sounds real good.

Well, call me crazy, but I've started scratchbuilding another armored locomotive. The last one was loads of enjoyment, so I'm doing it again! Wish me luck. :-)

Well I have sort of "delayed" progress on the Panzer lV for a while, actually taken it to 2 displays this year as a "Work in Progress" model, most of the construction is done, need to do the tracks now.
Been putting more time into my Mid Production Tiger 1 lately, tanks and base are pretty much done and am working on painting 3 crew figures slowly.

M113A2 Desert Version by Tamiya. Really taking my time on this one so that i can get it right. Still contemplating on the gloss coat and experimenting whether the humbrol Satin Coat will wash off easily using turps as i dont want to screw my airbrush up.
