Today we announce with sadness that three our tanks were badly injured from their fierce battle on Saturday. Mr Michie once again turned up in the shop and unleashed his suspiciously fortunate dice throws. Beating us once is fortunate, beating us twice is suspicious, but THREE times? Something is wrong.
Space Craft hereby challenge you, Mr Michie, to a game of the highly anticipated (by us anyway) Monsterpocalypse. Read up on the rules because you can no longer hide behind your measly cornfields or rural cottages as giant robots are coming to town!
First introduced in 1972, the Mi-24 “flying tank” is the first Soviet helicopter capable of transporting cargo and troops without compromising its attack capabilities.
1) Included in the kit are:
2) The canopy was carefully masked over before brush-on primer was applied.
3) Individual parts were painted before assembling.
5) This is the assembled model with decals added:
6) To finish off, a layer of dark wash was applied to accentuate the panel lines and protect the model.
Our latest build is the King Tiger from Meng World War Toons series – welcome to the world of cartoon tanks!
1) Included in the kit are the sprues, rubber tracks, and a small sheet of decal – which is a nice change from the Airbus A350.
2) This is a snap kit, the parts fitted nicely together but glue might handy for smaller parts.
3) The sprues come in grey, but we decided to prime it with a matt grey coat for a more realistic look. The finer details are picked out by hand.
4) In the final stage, decals are added. All the areas were nice and flat – no dramas here.
This is simple and straight forward kit, which can be built in an hour. The tank feels very sturdy, despite almost no glue was used.
Newly stocked – Plastic Weld Cement
