my first interior

hello, ive just ordered my first kit with an interior the tamiya 1/35 M2 Bradley, has anybody built this kit? or has anybody got any advice about fitting interiors? i cant help thinking this will be a really bad kit as it only cost 17.99 but i will soon find out, if it is real bad ill be sure to let you lads know

I've got the M3 Bradly by Tamiya. I don't think it has an interior. I've got a /148 t-34 with an interior and a 1/35 Pz38 with an interior, but I haven't touched either of them yet. Oh, the Tamiya Stug B has a partial interior, and the DML Pz IV F2 has a partial in the turret.

All I can say is, do a lot of research before you start. Probably a lot easier with modern armor, though.

They have one with interior, it's just like the Academy.
Simple, easy. Not much to it, some seats and some details in the walls.

You should be able to get it at any art supply store. Just ask for strip and sheet styrene (hopefully that's what they call it in Britain). Art supply stores are a great source for model hobby supplies (plastic, chains, air brushes, paints, putty, knives, files, sculpting tools, resin, silicone, etc.). Think about it, our hobby combines multiple arts: sculpting and painting. Where should we go to find our supplies?

Hi

I've always known it as Plasticard and any decent modelling shop should stock it. Usually in a spinner display unit along with various other plastic sections/profiles. Some are a specific brand like Evergreen or Plastistrut.

Alternatively you could buy online, but bit expensive option with postage unless you combine with a kit or something. I haven't looked to see if UK online model stores carry this stuff as I've a stock years old and my local shops carry it anyway.

Other suppliers (in the UK) of this sort of stuff and more are.

http://www.ema-models.co.uk/
http://www.modelshop.co.uk/

Both deal more with model making from a architectural and prototyping point of view but still carry lots of interesting and useful items for our type of modelling.

Alan
