I started building models in March 2011. As you might guess, much interest was aroused by our subject - ArmA universe :) Anyone here interested in something similar? :) Maybe someone here just builds a plastic models, not necessarily on ArmA theme?

Let's share photos :)

This is the first model i build - Tamiya M113 A1 - which is fighting on the RACS side somewhere in the vicinity of Dolores.

M113 - Tamiya, Infantry - slightly converted "US infantry in Iraq" kit by ICM (my realy first experience in plastic figures painting). Base is made of plaster on the photo frame. Paintbrush.

Thank you, guys :) It would be nice to see the works of other authors.

Moderators, sorry for the size of some photos. I cant fix it now, because using a work PC without graphic editors, i promise to fix it later :) In addition, there is no huge photos anyway, maybe ten kb over limit or two :shrug:

Great Models!
Posted Image Master of testing for a better Arma and well, for science.
Teach the AI how to drive. Teach AI Tank drivers to turn their front towards the enemy. Give us supression effects for AI . Make AI ragdoll if they get hit. Give us proper animations for throwing Frags. Give us a proper wounding system. Fix the armored vests so that they don´t protect the whole torso. More Civilian assets. Females. Weapon resting. Give us inertia influenced movement depending on the Weapon you have.

Hehe, that's pretty cool. Well done :)

Status: lurker.

If you're wondering about where I am, since I'm not active at the moment - I am fine! Graphics card got broken, I met someone lovely, and I had to move far away from where I came from. I also got got a whole lot of work and school these days, so no time for ArmA-gaming these days either way. So there it is. That is my current status and story. Haven't really been paying attention to BI since summer of 2015. I reaaaally hope I can get back on the saddle sooner or later, but think might be the start of that scary adulthood everyone is afraid of. God have mercy on my soul, for I seriously want to keep seeing this baby (BI) grow up to be a evil mega corp.

Let's see how it plays out!

If you cant fix them do not hotlink them, thats what you should have done.
Not having time or tools available to prevent the posting of images well over 2x the limit is a big no and as such for breaking the rules deliberatly you recieve an infraction.
We surely can not have people break the rules and say they cant help it. The end would be near.



PS:
Lovely work, needed to be said as well.

You know you've played too much Arma when... Ha ha just kidding, these look excellent and definately not something we'd expect to see :D

The precision of lines are fantastic, did you also paint the weathering, camo and grime yourself because that is impressive, especially the small chipping along the hatches.

These look great, mate!

I don't know if anyone else in the community does anything like this. You may be the only one posting photos.

Yes, hotlinking images that will increase my download time of the page approximately 1 second will be the cause of the zombie apocalypse. I fully support the moderators in their actions.

On topic, when you talk about the 'TOW' being sanitary linen - is that something you would care to elaborate on ? I'm not sure what you mean specifically, and am interested in how it may make it's way into a model.

What's funny is that i always considered those games the other way around : a way to animate and give a brain to static models and figures.

My thought's exactly!
What I played with.. over 40 years ago...has come to life.:D

Very nice reverse technology with the models.:)
