Frederick, The Conqueror is a nice kit to make, especially if you like PE (This one had about 138 bits to play with) The casting is sharp and clear. The Emil is an Airfix 148 scale version and is done OOB so I had to use the decals. I will use Mals masks when I do another one though

Hi John,

Is this Holdfast Dynasty surfacing?

That Conqueror - smart looking model. What is it like as a kit?

Your Emil looks fine, too.

Looking good John, although I'm not sure what a madel show is, perhaps somewhere for mad ducks

I've managed to progress this one after building it mainly during madel shows that my local club attended.

That 1/72 Conqueror MKII looks awesome, even makes me want to get the kit, almost!

I do not believe that you are building a 1/48 scale Bf109!

Hurry with the pics, the week end is nearly over, well its Sunday morning

At the moment I have three things on the go.

1. OKB Grigorov 172 scale Conqueror MKII build can be viewed here: http://modelerssocialclub.proboards.com/thread/10569/1-72nd-scale-conqueror

This is for the Modern British Armour SIG.

2. I have a 148 scale Airfix Messerschmitt BF109E-4 on the go for my local club competition.

3. I also have a 135 scale Ace models British light tank MKVIc which is a long term project which I hopefully will have finished for SMW2016.

I'll post some pictures up this weekend hopefully.
