Thanks Eduardo, Unfortunately you can't find these ANYWHERE anymore I saw them on another forum and ordered them on the spot and was lucky enough to get them while they lasted. After this was showcased on this forum news show the company sold out and I haven't been able to find them at all. The company is out of Taiwan and they are called Expo Mini F Clamp set.

If you do find some please let me know. Although I purchased 6 clamps I wouldn't mind getting more.

Good Luck
Neil

UPDATE: Tankwagen

So did a little bit on the Tankwagen today. Finished out the wheels and frame and did some weathering. So here we go.

Wheels and tires being cut off the sprue and cleaned up



All glued up and ready for paint



Paint on and the frame with a base coat of Model Master "Rust" The wheels got a coat of Tamiya "Nato Black" with a little "Dark Sea Grey"



Dry fit of the wheels to the frame



Then sprayed the hubs and frame the primary coat of RLM 76 with a touch of grey to slightly darken it up a bit



next was weathering the wheels and frame. Wheels first!

Close shot of a finished wheel



Now everything weathered with some Mig pigments and dry brushed along with the spare.



Bottom Shots





Sides




Shot of the spare


 
And with the spare attached



That's where we stand as of today, see ya next time!
Thanks for looking!
Cheers!!

Lovely weathering on those wheels, giving them a real tired look (excuse the pun).

Nice build Neil.

Nice work on the wheels and tyres Neil, weathering very realistic. For a first attempt at armour you are nailing it. [smile]

Got home to find the last of my orders arrived the 1/48 crew and mech. figures from Dragon. They look ok but expected better from Dragon but they will do.

First the box art, which you've seen


 
And sprues



Some close ups




Check out the wood grain on the table top! gonna look good after some wash



That's all there is now just need to think of arranging all this on a base.
Thanks all
Cheers!
