    1. Tamyia.

    2. Easy to follow instructions, good quality mouldings, easy to fit together, good details, enjoyable to build, good box art too.

    3. 1/35. Big enough to see fine details and small enough to forgive my lack of painting skills.

    Tamiya 1/35th scale... I like the detail and the extra parts. Over the years the parts box grew which served me well with building dioramas,,,and modifying some vehicles. Regards Larry

    I must admit I am with Adrian for the same reason, (when I used to model many moons ago) but again the Verlinden models were just coming in then and some of them were very good

    I have to admit there is a lot of nostalgia there too.

    Going to Beatties model shop in Southampton on a Saturday with my paper round money and having to choose which kit to buy. Had to be German but which one?

    Sitting at the kitchen table in front of the Aga painting and gluing or maybe on the floor in my bedroom with a Duran Duran or T'Pau cassette or record on.

    Great memories.


    Great music.............. ahem............

    Well for me i started with 1/72nd Airfix aircraft ,then 1/35th Tamiya figures and vehicles , now i'm into Dragon models and recently Master Box , the detail on these are xtremely realistic in their poses and not to be morbid but the one thing that has always been lacking in figures was wounded or dead poses , Master Box seem to have filled that gap in realism , i've always thought that dioramas were never fully complete by not portraying that feature and there was nothing worse than cutting up good frigures to make them ,plus they never looked realistic ,also the facial features on Master Box figures is excellent

    I have experimented with a hot xacto knife when creating wounds of disfiguring. That seems to work well insted of just shaving off with the knife the excess plastic

    Verlinden gets my vote.
    I like the 120 mm figures due to the amount of detail that you are able to achieve. They also make some good 1/35th figures. Crews as well as wounded and dead. Also lots of extra kit for dioramas.
