Diorama accessories...................
The Trumpeter/HobbyBoss & Meng Facebook pages are covered with something called ' Wandering Earth ' - It's a Chinese Sci-Fi Blockbuster Film releasing soon. Merchandising and models will be made by Trumpy & Meng. I won't post anything sci-fi, but if this is your area of interest, feel free to post your spots!

Their PO-2, with pilots - not very inspiring boxart!

Four braille scale models in a box - all previous releases, I believe. The ATZ is a fuel tanker

I hope theyve included some women pilots among the 7 figures dave , the most famous use of the po2 was the female crewed night bombing / harrassment squadrons - the infamous night witches( nachthexen) if not ICM have missed a trick . Cheers tony

I have been corresponding with a seller on ebay uk, and for those of you that are following my Centurion build but cannot face the prospect of all that cutting etc, This seller has made up some conversion sets for the AFV Club Centurion. These are 3D renderings, and if I had seen these first then.... He also has other items both in 1/35 and 1/76 scale for sale and covers the Chieftain and Challenger
He is based in the UK, and his seller name is mark-dumbell, and for example one of the items listed is #113670651530.

Now that would have saved me a LOT of work, and for under £40......

When I saw your Centurion engine deck, I thought: if I’ll ever get my Mk. 7 actually underway, maybe 3D printing would be a good way to do those panels at the very least. (This is a 3D design I can do myself, as it’s all flat shapes :smiling3:)

There is a female, although I suspect not a pilot - not in that skirt!

Jakko,
Forget 3D printing for the deck louvres, they are just as easy to build up from strip, all the measurements are the same and the parts are c/a'd into place. And today I recieved a small package from Mark and let me say I am well impressed.

I had also noticed that — it’s just that 3D-printing the lot will mean they’re all exactly the same size and evenly spaced, two things I have the most trouble with when scratchbuilding parts :smiling3:

I remember those figures because I thought that the planks would break if used like that...
