Some lovely sculpts in there but... sadly... not in my 'collection arc' (I don't collect dead things).

Grendel is proper awesome :) .

Good luck with the stretch goals and for feck's sake don't overstretch yourself ;)

Maybe they haven't the experience you require?

It all depends on the value put on the custom sticker. If it exceeds a certain value (I think it is 18) then you may be subject to import tax. If that is the case, you will also be charged 8 admin on top of the tax.

Sometimes, if you are lucky, you don't get taxed.

That is a general rule... not specifically CMoN (I have never ordered from CMoN).

The last time I got hit with charges, I spent $36 on miniatures (from RAFM) and ended up spending 14 on tax and admin charges (over two thirds of the cost of the miniatures).

I don't watch anything that isn't on TV, DVD, You Tube or linked to from Facebook.

I don't do streaming films.

It's got to a point where I am going to end up messing them up because I am bored with them so, as far as they are concerned, the tank and transport are finished for now:



The tape holding the top of the tank on and the sideskirts on the transport on, is just temporary because I will need things to be removable for painting :) .

I'm gald you like it :)

All the other stuff... it's a sci-fi tank... so I can come up with all sorts of explanations for the bits that could do with changing... but I won't :D

The Panther Russ is finished except for trimming the tracks (I'll do that when I paint it) and the Hanomag pattern Chimera is also finished apart from the side skirts (which are made but will need to be left off until the wheels are painted)... I am currently decorating the Wolverines :) . There will be pix when they are finished :) .

... I also need to sort out the legs for sale... Hmmm...

It's been a slow week but I am getting the details put on the Hanomag Pattern Chimera. I've added hatches, a few details to the turret and the start of the front detail. Ticking along... :) :

So today we are little further ahead with the transport:

In order to create a full review, I have fitted the legs to all of the torsos from the Tartaros terminator sprues and am in the process of building my little Wolverine unit. Here is where I am at so far :) :



The white balls are 8mm acrylic beads.

I cleared the port away... well... I drank it so it is much the same thing really :D

Here's where I am at with the Hanomag pattern Chimera (obviously VERY WIP still):

Thanks to SDKFZ (an excellent tank builder on another forum) and his excellent Hanomag scratchbuild for a Chimera... I have started converting a 1/35th Tamiya Hanomag half track. So far I have glued the top and bottom of the hull together and then cut down the centreline of the kit. I then cut out a segment about 2cm from each side. The idea is to shorten and widen the kit. So far so good. All the cutting has been done and I have cleaned things up. I have also put in a lot of battens so that I can join everything together (they still need trimming but they need to dry at the moment). The next job is to put in a 1cm spacer down the middle and then assemble the hull. Here is my little workspace while my house is in disarray:



Note... the port is sitting minding it's own business... :)

Libertee's Miscellaneous Musings II / Re: KITTEN!
« on: January 10, 2017, 05:10:46 PM »
He's 8 months old today... and bigger than our 'middle' cat already. I reckon he's got a bit of Maine Coon in him because he shouldn't be this big. My sister's little tiny cat produced Sam... and there are Maine Coons in the same house so it is possible that there was a bit of mixed breeding going on :o .

He's just as you say... big, floofy and cute (but tends to play rough so I have to be careful when I put my hands near him when he's in a fighty mood :) ).

Sometimes, it helps to see progress to keep you motivated.
