I'll steadily add more people to this section as I discover them. Next up is Kyle Nelson who has a great blog with a gallery of his work. Really like his Pzkfw. 38(t) Ausf. B, looks fantastic with the interior done.

I completely forgot to post up some pics from the Scottish Nationals that were held at the Dewar Hall in Perth at the end of April. I went on the Sunday when it was quiet and got a good look round everything. I'm interested in the armour side of things so there are only so many aircraft I can stare at before they all start looking the same but the standard of some of them was fantastic. I went with ulterior motives as I wanted to see the standard in the painting competition. Hoping to enter something next year so better get practising my painting! I thought the variety of subjects that was on display was great with all things from sci-fi, fantasy, props, historical, aircraft and armour. Below is the winning 1/35th scale armour category:

I've always thought that the Sherman was a bit of minefield to model. With it being so prevalent in all theatres and its variants used, your modelling options are endless. I found this site really good at ironing out the details and when they came about. If you know of any other similar sites for different tanks then let me know!
I have one of the ancient Italeri kits already built that I am going to use as a dummy model for practicing some techniques. No detailing done on it, just out of the box. Straight forward build but I'm sure it's got a good few inaccuracies on it as some parts are very chunky and there is no room to fit the nasty vinyl tracks so will leave them off.
