Here's my new builds for the AFV GB - and first ones for 2012:
Academy 1/48 S-Tank (motorized!!) hehe
Airfix B-type Bus - used in WW1 as troop transport and homing pigeon carrier - I am interested to try that conversion.
Hmm how to make pigeons????

If you want to cut your work, you can use Tamiya's Livestock set chickens... just modify the tails and trim the fat.

Got my hands on some refs...mostly external shots. However, got a very useful article from Airfix magazine July 1969, courtesy of friends in the Airfix Tribute Forum - an extremely interesting and active place to hang out, with tons of knowledge sharing, builds and WIP happening almost every hour B)
Started to build up the cabin - plastic sheet and strips used for the window panelling and interior ribs. No known pictures of the interior, so i followed the layout of other builds i found on the net, and added a few details of my own.
Pigeons on the way..took the easy way out and found that a Czech outfit called Hauler does a set for RM 20+, ordered two, plus some WW1 british figures.

1. Working on the upper deck and pigeon house. All details were sanded off and the new walls made from scribed plastic sheet. Square rod used for framework. The "outriggers" will be mesh netting
2. Chassis and lower body put together
3. Test fit the upper and lower sections. Man, it looks so home-made - hard to imagine this was a communication HQ vehicle :lol:

Damn interesting build Aneh,
Starting to look like the "Wacky Races" cartoon cars man. :lol: :lol:
The weathering will be great for this one with all the pidgeon droppings strikking down the sides.

The building is as usual up to your standards aneh.....but the subject matter....hmmm let's just say....it's different

i am not actually sure whether i am mesmerized by the build ... or the fact that the kit is actually red in color. in one the picts it looked like the kit is actually glowing. :D
|Starting to look like the "Wacky Races" cartoon cars man. |

Some update: built up the rest of the pigeon house including the "sangkar" on the sides. Used mesh from...something (cannot be mentioned here) with some tampal-tampal here and there for a bit of a battered look. The little "house" at the front is the entrance for the pigeons :lol:
Other stuff also scratched - extended rear mudguards, side racks, rear doors etc. RH front mudguard was missing in kit, had to fabricate.

Thomas, the mesh is too soft and too fine to be penapis kopi and the penapis teh in mamak shop is finer than this. And I know what he get it from lah... hahahahaha :lol: :lol: :lol: Sounds like "auntie".... :lol: :lol: :lol:
Aneh team should know this lah... what lah Thomas... by the way, good to see you back bro... :D
rtfoe - January 13, 2012 03:35 AM (GMT)
Beautiful lar Aneh Landy. Damn unique build.
Normally when all this extra plastic is added on I always have a problem of covering up with paint. For you no problem lar.
Mesh...starts with"p" and ends with "hose" I think. :lol:
Aneh Thomas aka Mr North...good you're back. GH where lar dey Pinang or KL?

landyshah - January 13, 2012 04:21 AM (GMT)

mr b - January 13, 2012 06:34 AM (GMT)
Interesting never knew that p equates to aunty meaning a type or garment could be used in scale modelling..........
rtfoe - January 13, 2012 06:39 AM (GMT)
Haha, you mean "P""Aunty" and not the the other garment "P""Aunty Hose"

Ah yes yes....something like that haha
Some update - base paintwork laid on, and begin detailing the interior - more stuff to add. Green was a mix of OD and Khaki, to try and match WW1 british army colours.
xamel1975 - January 18, 2012 01:29 AM (GMT)
Cantik benar reban ni :).
masterqq - January 18, 2012 02:06 AM (GMT)
Dei...don forget also need to paint tahi tahi burung kat reban ah..... :D
landyshah - January 21, 2012 03:45 PM (GMT)
Aaa..yes yes, Ill get real tahi burung and put ...a lot of pigeon hang out outside my room window
Interior finished - put some details like SMLE rifle, maps, some stowage, boxes etc. Also added the famous poster of Lord Kitchener "Your country needs YOU"
Window transparencies added, then attached the top deck. Continue with rear steps, doors etc...and put "hay" to make cosy bed for the birdies.
Still more to go....but mind thinking of next project hehe, will open thread

Per : Tak mampu menandingi
Tak terkata..masa bagaikan terhenti seketika..sebak rasa melihat penghasilan yang amat padu dan jitu yang tidak mampu diri ini menghasilkannya.
Memang layak dengan gelaran yang dipegang Mahaguru Alam Semesta Kerajaan Langit Dan Bumi. Sebagai pengikut yang setia kan kuarak kan panji dilangit dan bumi
Rasa kecil diri ini dan malu yang amat sangat untuk mempamirkan penghasilan yang tak seberapa dan diakhiri sengan serangkap pantun
Tuai padi antara masak
Esok jangan layu layuan
Antara model yang dibuat siap atau tidak
Sama-sama lah kita pamirkan
Sekian, terima kasih
Beli lebih bina kurang......akhir tahun jual
