COMPLETED British Challenger 2 MBT Op. Telic (Part Final)

Finally its done...
after a few months sitting on my workbench its finally done!!

with added some detailing this must have been my most elaborate base to date for my build and the only thing missing is some figure....:o)

now i included some canvas tarp on the tank to cover some of the ration boxes and with added stuff i hope this would somehow represent the challenger 2 on a checkpoint somewhere during Ops Telic...

if you look closely, you might saw a poster of the late Saddam Hussein on the base
  This would be my "virtual" entry for a locally organized Diorama Group Build, it is virtual because i couldnt make it to the event due to me visiting the LIMA 2011 over the weekend thus my entry will just be based on some of these photos.

 There's a lot of my "first" on this build which includes the base, the use of scratch build Jersery Barrier, the use of those ration boxes and the elaborate base.

and this will be my last completed build for year 2011 and looking forward to more build in 2012. Stay tuned for more stuff from my workbench.. and be on a look-out for my new website with my own domain name coming in a few weeks.... for preview visit

LIMA 2011 - here i come!!

(actually tomorrow, but since early tomorrow morning i'll depart to Langkawi so i posted this today... :o) )

Langkawi International Maritime & Aerospace (LIMA) Exhibition 2011 is happening now (for the public) until tomorrow in where else... Langkawi Island and i'll be there tomorrow morning...

 Now at its 11th edition and my 2nd LIMA visit to date ( i was there during LIMA 2007). My main interest is to see the the Dassault Rafale, Saab Gripen, FA-18E Super Hornet and the Eurofighter in person also not forgetting the TUDM MIG-29s and the SU-30MKM....

I'm also going to make sure i didnt miss the helicopter exhibition on the tarmac and visiting the souvenir shop since i somehow forget to do so on my last visit in 2007 (maybe during that time i was captivated by the Red Arrows acrobatics performance  a few meters above my head hahahaha)

I planned to go via Kuala Kedah and still haven't decided if its going to be a day trip or will stay there until Sunday morning since accommodation shouldn't be a problem since i have a cousin working on the island.

Anyway for more info on LIMA 2011 visit  and remember that today is the starting day for the public to visit the exhibition (9-10 December) since the last 3 days (6,7, 8 December) it only open for Trade Visitors

I'll post some photos during my visit there sometime next week and until then....
