    Hi Harry,

    I’m excited to see your posting something, let me help you with the pictures.
    You can do either things:
    1. Upload the pictures to an external sharing solution (such as photobucket)
    2. upload the pictures to MSM by clicking on ‘Photos’ when hovering over your account name in the top right corner

    option is recommended since it ensures…[Read more]

  • Boris Kamp replied to the topic How do I? in the forum Other 3 years, 7 months ago

    @sprueman, okay clear, please give me at least a few days to write how-to’s on all of those and you will have an excellent guideline. Sounds good?

  • @jelliott Hi Jeremy! welcome to MSM, glad you became a member. We’re a growing community and I’d love to know what your interests are regarding scale modelling (-:

    • Thank you Borussia! I build mainly 1/48 aircraft; however, I have picked up a few armor kits to take a swing at. I started modeling athe the age of 10 and built through my teens and early adulthood. I gave it up for about 15 years and now I’m back at it. I’ve been building again for the past 3 years.

      • Oh nice, I wish I had the time to build more aircraft (or anything at all at the time). I’ve built the 1/48 F-117 and F-14 and they are the eye catchers in my display case! Good you got back at it, you must me happy you did right? I remember me getting back at it after years of nothing, I really enjoyed it.

        Would you like to show of some of your…[Read more]

        • I could do that. I’m currently working on the Trumpeter TA-3B in 1/48. As soon as its done I could post a string of work-in-progress pics.

          • thats a nice plane! You can do either things or both:
            1. create a showcase with build AND final pictures once the build is finished, like with my F-117 as linked to above.
            2. start and keep track of a build log on the forums, this way you can update it during your build and we can view it, comment and help if needed.

            Glad you’re thinking about…[Read more]

            • I’ll figure something out. I’ll be on vacation for about a month out of country so it will be awhile before I get back to building anything. As soon as I get back, I’ll be sure to post something.

      • Perfect Jeremy, looking forward to it!
        Nice! Where are you visiting?

  • Boris Kamp replied to the topic How do I? in the forum Other 3 years, 7 months ago

    Hi @sprueman,

    What exactly is it you’re trying to achieve?

    Are you trying to post a showcase, review, how-to, keep track of a build log?

    Let me know and I’ll gladly help you out.

  • haha, well the Fruil tracks will look awesome once you’re done!

Focusing on US forces during WW2 and Vietnam at the moment. I want to learn about applying pigments to AFV’s and other vehicles a bit more effectively.

        Seems like a great decision! Scale modelling is so awesome (-:

      I’m not sure you can edit your post on the activity stream here, I know you can with the forums and all other posts. I will look into it as I plan make a lot of changes to the site soon.

      Looks like great material for neat diorama! good luck with that one.

  • Nice! The PzH2000? I built that one many years ago.

  • Cool Keith! are you currently building it? how about keeping a simple build log here, would love to see your process and have your build on MSM.

  • @grumpy,

    Sorry for my oh so late reply, I think it will be unnecessary by now but I feel like replying anyway.
    Yes, if you have the money I think it’s worth it by far because the end result will be more realistic, especially the tires.

    What did you buy in the end?

  • @sprueman Welcome Anthony! Great to have you here. can you tell a little bit about yourself and your interest regarding scale modelling?

    • Hey Boris: I’ve been an armor builder most of my 45+ years, but now I sculpt military figures. My main area is the US military, that’s were I spent 27 years, USMC and the US Army. I’m from Amarillo Texas been married to the same great woman for 31years. Love what I’ve seen here. so far. As soon as I learn my way around I’ll post some pictures.

      • Sounds great Anthony! So you create those figures yourself? I’m curiously awaiting the pictures of your sculpted pictures and armour. Great to here you served that long, much respect towards you, even though I’m not American.
        Sounds like you’re settled perfectly then😄

        Great to have you here and I’m looking forward to your posts.
