1:35 Scale Painted Tamiya Universal Carrier Crew.

My friend Vinnie rather sneakily caught me in a good mood (we were in Burger King) and handed me a box and asked a favour...........

.....the favour turned out to be the Tamiya 1:35 British Universal Carrier Crew and weapons (he said he'll paint the vehicle himself) but the crew I sorted because he's a friend!

1:35 scale is approx 54mm scale........

  1. They look pretty good. I think I'd ask you to paint for me but it's also because I can't paint.

  2. Really nice. Been a long long time since I built a Tamiya kit. I used to droll over their yearly catalogues :-)

  9. They're really well done for 1/35th, which is not an easy shift from 15mm and 28mm.

    As a teen I used to make the odd Tamiya kit in 1/35th... I was looking at them the other day and couldn't believe how much they are now.

  24. I like that that one guy gets to stand around smiling while the other guys work. Mustaches have their privileges, apparently.

  29. Excellent looking crew and weapons - your skills translate well to any scale. I loved 1:35th Tamiya stuff when I was a kid - brings back great memories. Best, Dean

  31. Spot on Fran, nice painting

  32. The first miniatures i ever bought were a Tamiya kit, they were painted horribly and based with rocks but by god my nine year old self played with them everyday ! These look phenomenally better than mine, can't wait to see the carrier itself

    ReplyDelete
  33. Nice work Fran good tones and shading. Will this just be a display piece or a gaming model?

    ReplyDelete
  34. Well done; it's nice to paint some of the bigger figures from time to time.

    ReplyDelete
  35. I think he will be very happy with those Fran!

  36. 54mm!!! I am impressed-they look fantastic Fran. I'm late because I've had the day from hell and it's not over yet.

  37. They look a bit pale, but that might just be the lightning.

  38. Nice work Fran! They look really good. I need friends like you! I always end up painting their stuff instead.

  39. My brother has a wardrobe full of Tamiya kits at our parents' place, which he won, over a number of years, through the model making club he was in. Takes me back to his childhood and my adolescence.

  40. Good stuff, especially considering the figures are a little dated. Can't wait to see them alongside the carrier!
