Models etc

I thought ill take a very short break from The Tiger post but will go back to it.
I have been very busy at work so been very tired so lots of early Nights.

For my birthday back in February my best friends The Angry Lurker & Sweetness got me a 28mm
Cromwell MK IV from Warlord Games and a 28mm Churchill MK VII also from Warlord Games.

I have put them together just need to be transported to The Angry Lurker, where I will Paint them but under his watchful eye I just lack confidence. I have my work station which is where I put my kits together. I find putting together model kits very relaxing.
                                                                 

                                                       My Work Station

My main aim is to get all British Tanks in 1.35 scale and 28mm as well. I know I am doing a post on the German Tiger 1 but it is iconic so I had to get the 1.35 kit which is pictured on a previous post unpainted. I am about to start putting together a Tamiya 1.35 scale British Matilda MK II tank.

                                             Matilda MK II plastic kit 1.35 scale



I needed something to transport my models to The Angry Lurkers Man cave Fran was kind enough to give me a Games workshop case.


                                                          The Case

I also needed to get some foam to pad the case out with which to protect my models when in transit.
I went on line and found a company called KR Multi-Case I ordered a 108mm deep pick & pluck
which means I can pluck out small bricks of foam to fit any size model in cost me £13 which isn't to bad.

                                                           
                                                KR Multi-case foam

I will also put pictures up of the painted models when completed. My next post will go back to the story of the German Tiger 1

  1. Those are nice models. I haven't made any of Warlord's stuff but it is probably less stressful and demanding than a Tamiya or Revell kit. Looking forward to seeing the painted results. Fran's a good bloke, you're lucky to have him as a mate.
    Cheers,
    Mike

    Look forward to seeing the Matilda built up. It looks like a helluva lot of parts though!!

    1. Warlord was easy to put together very few parts.
      and yes the Matilda has loads of parts but I love kits like that big fan of Tamiya kits my Tiger 1 is a Tamiya kit
