Hi Shaun,
Have done 1/35, 1/32, 1/48, 1/72 and 1/76. If the subject interests me I'll build it, AFV of course :twisted: .
Below are a few of my 1/35 builds:

I do have lots more especially WW2 Jeeps, Beeps and Scout Cars.

Those are beautiful armour builds, Corricon. I'd be interested in how you photographed those 1/35 builds too, with the transition from background image to base – very convincing.

Man alive those are brilliant! excellent photography too. It's good to see another AFV builder on here, Corricon. I have to admit to being a part-timer with my interests more or less split down the middle between aircraft and military vehicles. Scale wise, I'm also not fussed and build in all the major scales although with aircraft I steer away from the largest scales such as 1/32 and 1/24 due to display/storage space restrictions. My model collection is a proper jumble!

Great builds and photography. I especially like the Landrover.

All the best.

Migrant,
Its basically a A4 photo from the internet that has an extra enlarged part of the road added at the base and then folded at that point and the vehicle is then stood on the folded part of the photo.
This is then photographed so that it fills the entire lens.
Hope that all makes sense.

Great work on the armor. Especially considering the scale of some of them. I really like the way you did the backgrounds of the dioramas as well. Going to tuck this one away for later.

Cheers,

More progress today in that the Churchill and Centurion are now complete:

I have also managed to get the markings applied to the Matador Refueller:

As I now only have 2 kits on the go I may well break out some others from the stash :twisted:
Updates to follow.

Churchill and Centurion tanks look excellent, Corricon and the Matador is also shaping up very nicely. This is great small scale military vehicle work and I look forward to seeing more of your builds.

Very nice indeed, Corricon. Military trucks such as this make great modelling subjects IMHO.

I love those photos. Very effective. The sandbagged sherman is especially nice looking.

As there is only the MWD Bedford on the go at the moment I decided to break out yet another Airfix Cromwell and to utilise another S and S Models conversion kit to make a Centaur Dozer.
I spent the last 2 to 3 hours assembling the main hull with the only adjustments being to drill holes around the circumference of the tyres, cut off the front mud guards, add a disc of plastic card to the turret opening and leave off the turret. Next I added some of the white metal parts that I could, that do not inhibit the painting, and I am now to this stage and ready for some paint:
