    Yes the last one I finished was the Chi-Ha and in that build I didn't trim a single part or discovered any error!! So that was a 100%kit!!
    If you want a pleasant build just go for that one as your next :)

    I have some pics for you just in case you missed it :)

    I will save the Japanese tank for later. Too much other stuff to take care of first, like this Luchs.:twisted:
    Hey, maybe we can build the T40 at the same time too!:cool:
    I have the laser kit but I haven't found a barrel yet, have you?

    Well, I guess I am a little bit late on the T40 as well.
    I do have the same mechanics crew as well.
    I have everything I need, I guess.
    I just need time to put it all together. That's the hard part. Making time.:oops:

    Making time at home is the hardest part....
    But when kids at school,wife at work,fresh coffee in the cup then it's not so bad doing some quality mantime :)

    How are your luchs coming along?
    I do hope you will post your construction report here with me!

    It is coming along well, actually.
    Do you want me to post my pictures in this thread or would you like me to start my own?
    Personally, I would just rather post them here right along with yours, but it is only right that I ask first.:rolleyes:

    What do you think Johnny?

    I knew you would say so but I just had to hear it first.
    It is your thread after all.

    I'm digging through my pictures as I have been working on a little surprise for this build.:thumb:
    A little something for my diorama.:twisted:
    I think you will like it a lot.

    Well, I have been looking for the pictures and they have escapd me.
    I'll have to get some more.
    Anyway, just part of the diorama is an outhouse, but I am not so sure such a thing existed in Germany at the time, did it?

    I am not sure where the original design came from.?

    Oh yes that existed all over europe. And it still does :)
    Plenty of them here in norway, mostly near cabins.
    We have one up in the mountain at our cabin.

    I just installed a new one at my parents cabin on the west coast, that was of the electric type that burns the "waist" in seconds.
    Such toilets are the only option where you dont have water or permission to let spillwater and sour out in the nature.

    I also built that outhouse from papercreek about two years ago :)

    Cool!
    I thickened all the walls with 1mm and then put the wood grain inside and out. I'm all done with the outhouse, I just can't find where I put the pictures! Darn it!
    I even made a roll of toilet paper! I have to say myself, it looks pretty darn good! I'll just have to take some more pictures, I guess!

    Anyway, I had a lot of fun building it and never even gave any thought to the scale, until it was nearly completed.:cry:
    By the looks of it, I think I'm going to have to double the size of it.
    It will be fun! Maybe I can get a little more detailed with it!:twisted:

    Nice outhouse Russell!!
    I built mine in 1:25, and it's looking terrible compared to yours!

    Josve,
    How do you apply the skins onto the frame? Are you using white glue or spray adhesive? Please advise.
    Thanks.
    Beautiful work, I love all your models.

    I used white glue for the operation.I find that glue useful to most of the gluing I do :)
