Renault-Mgebrov Armoured Car 1915
« on: December 03, 2015, 02:16:46 PM »
Imperial Russian armoured cars from YellowHouseModels.  A boutique WW1 model company with a small range of top quality resin kits from Ivan.  This is the Renault-Mgebrov 1915.







Here's my current work in progress, I have to add the little door handles next.










And I also have the rest of Ivan's current cars in my stash:

-  Russo-Balt type C 1914
-  Fiat Omsky 1919 (twin gun)
-  Renault-Mgebrov 1915 (one turret)
- Fiat Omsky 1919 (one gun)



Would you like to see my collection (x4) of Russian artillery 1902?  These are great little kits and priced to sell, also sent from the Ukraine.

Here you go George

If you're not careful, Steven, you're going to end up making a shed load of wooden spokes with thin metal tires (or tyres ;) ).  You'll have to change your forum avatar!

George, I'll go for making a shed load of models from my stash to start with :).  I don't have time today but if you look in the Wiener Modellbau site you'll find submarines, a torpedo boat 1890's and a brand new WW1 Austro-Hungarian Morser kit.  When the morser arrives I might post the photos of my WW1 WMM collection.

I'm also going to build this one..



Large pile of green Tommy stuff for the..



Rolls Royce Armoured Car 1914 pattern.  I've also got the Resicast kit in 1/35 scale for this car.

Hey George guess what I just found on the net while the Dough Boys are sleeping........:)



The little silhouette on the left represents Dave's morser, so Bertha is a great big box of fun.  :o

I have the Mörser, which looks tiny now! I think I'll wait to build the Mörser before I consider this Big Bertha.

Love your collection Steven, appears you are really getting into WW1 armour and artillery. I'm very excited about Big Bertha, I will have to track it down and order one.

Hey George, yes, Big Bertha makes the original morser look small.

Thanks Nobby :)

Des if you want a Big Bertha you'll have to go the pre-order pathway.  I just put a pre-order into BNA models in Oz that way you avoid the Forex issues and keep the shipping costs down.  My Bertha cost a couple of bucks under $100 including the shipping.  I'd expect delivery mid Jan 2016, it's a bit hard to tell.  I've got a few of these Takom kits, they're lovely quality and priced correctly.  It's a rare thing to find quality products at a sensible price. 

I've also got some Armo WW1 armoured cars but haven't photographed them yet.

 Steve,
Fantastic collection of Armored Cars and Artillery my old friend. The Renault-Mgebrov is new to me,did the French also use the same vehicle? Not a clue as to why but I've developed a thing for Renault vehicles. Wouldn't mine building more of them.
Highest Regards,
