Decals are on, and now I have begun the slow process of assembling the individual track links.

Another fine build for the collection Rory. Sweet.

Iain. It will be worth it in the end.

Apart from some ham fisted mechanic putting one set of tracks on backwards (so hard to get good help these days ) , the Valentine is now done.

Iain,

Nice finish. Really digging the paint work and the open hatches. Plan on adding any figures?

Thanks Mark. No figure plans at this stage, the kit came with some tank riders but no crew, which just seemed weird.
I am trying to figure out how to display all my Valentine based tanks together without taking oodles of space.

I'm happy to follow Lap Man into this campaign. My entry will be the old mid 70s Tamiya Matilda.

Hi,
Too many interesting campaigns to follow. It takes 2 months for assembly of this Challenger 2 Enhanced Armour. A slow progress.
Preparing the weathering on it.




Cheers,
K.

I’m in with a British Army Cromwell Mark IV tank in 1/35 scale. I started construction on this kit when it came out in 1997.

I didn’t get very far...

This will be a fairly basic build. The Cromwell is assembled straight out of the box with the hatches closed and prepped with Tamiya rattle-can Light Grey primer.

The only aftermarket used was Tamiya’s photoetch grill for the aft deck.

The Cromwell received an undercoat of Tamiya (XF-69) NATO Black followed by covering coat of J.A. Green (XF-13).

Following a thoroughly demoralizing painting disaster with the 1/35 Cromwell this past weekend, I’m making a switch for this campaign to something entirely different – a Flames of War Destroyed Valentine in 1/100 scale.

The FOW Valentine comes as a mini-dio complete with a “sand” base, thrown track, and a blown off road wheel.

A wargaming objective marker, this resin model is so simple there isn’t even any assembly. I can concentrate on recovering my painting mojo on this one!

Nice work Mr K. The Chally is really looking the part.

Sorry to hear about the painting disaster Tim. Good to have a back up plan.

I started THE Tortoise a while back, spent a lot of time on the running gear, which is more than 1/2 the kit, but for all the work, little will be visible. Will post pics when the whole running gear is finished, as nothing really to show as is.

Progress pic. Hours of work on the suspension which most will not be seen.

Under a coat of Tamiya rattle-can Light Grey primer.

Not the largest vehicle to begin with, the Valentine is just over two inches long in 1/100 scale!

Basic colors are on. The desert sand base is Tamiya Deck Tan (XF-55), the tank is Tamiya Buff (XF-57) with a very light Deck Tan overspray. They actually are different colors, but the difference is almost imperceptible!

Other details are Tamiya NATO Black (XF-69) rubber wheels, Tamiya RLM Gray (XF-22) bedrolls, Tamiya Khaki Drab (XF-51) satchels & camouflage netting, and Tamiya NATO Brown (XF-68) exhaust. Decals are from Battlefront Miniatures.

A wash of Grumbacher Raw Umber artist’s oil served to deepen recesses and highlight details.

After a little wiping down, the oil wash will also help to integrate the various colors without attacking the acrylic paints.

Pretty scary when the paint brush bristles are as big as the turret. Build by microscope!

Looks really nice though Tim.

Thanks Peter!

Looking rather sorry for itself, here’s my completed knocked-out Valentine.

The red and white turret and hull stripes were ID for the British 8th Army in the desert. Just visible on the front glacis of the vehicle is the red Desert Rat of the 7th Armoured Division and the white-on-green “28” of the 7th Hussars armoured regiment.

The red triangles on the turret signified that this would have been a vehicle of “A” squadron.


The thrown track and presence of undisturbed stowage suggest that the tank was disabled by a mine – perhaps the crew are taking a breather before getting their mount back in action?
