I remember spending my pocket money on a series of 1/76 scale WWII tank kits, each came with its own little diorama, great thinking by Matchbox. Years later in 1994, I got back into plastic modelling with a WWI Mk.IV “Female” tank, circa 1917. I loved researching such an iconic design, even with the scarcity of detailed books on the subject. There is much more now! But to find out that no information of their actual colour was known was a bit of a shock to a modeller and his paintbrush! I finally got it down to battleship grey; they were naval after all, bare metal and brown, (ish), with a generous coating of mud!
For my very, very heavy Tamiya, R/C, Panzerkapfwagen Tiger Ausf. B. (Tiger II), there is so much information, that I have the histories of every individual tank! But again, primary colour is an issue!
Here is my tank as it is was during it’s last refit, with its insides showing its true age and the Sherman again to show its many layers of grime.

DSC00454.
The four deadly judges from 200AD. (I collected the first 2000 issues starting from 1976). Judges Mortis, Fire, Fear and Death. They decided that crime was only committed by the living, so they stopped all crime in their dimension!
Many years of dusting is evident here.

DSC00456.
Chief Judge Cal, (his deputy was a goldfish) and one of the Klegg hound mercenaries he used to take down the Judges. [Left].
Next are Fink and Mean Angel, from the Angel Gang. Fink spent too much time in the Cursed Earth’s rad zones and Mean was a nice kid, so Pa had him fixed!
Last is Sam Slade, robohunter and private detective in all robot related criminal activities. [Right].

DSC00458.
Judge Dread and the PSI Judge, Anderson, based on the Brian Bolland drawings of the comic characters. Behind them is the “Killdozer 2000”, which was used in the Cursed Earth story in the comic, (a marketing deal I think). Tweak, the brown haired, rock-chomping alien was found there along with Fergie, a large dimwitted nutter with a baseball bat!

ALIEN3’s ox-burster, (Longer cut of film), all grown up and on the prowl.
This model has been hanging on my wall since 1996 on a thread of fine fishing line and has never suffered a “Dusting”. Dusting – when a model tries to return to its kit form while being delicately brushed and cleaned with a little puffer!
The arms and legs of this model were bent into position using a candle flames heat, but I left the tail as I was pushing my luck already!
And now a close up.

Not all of that red is paint by the way. Sharp scalpels can be, well, sharp!
