Awesome Mobelwagen, Tat! I really like the way you've detailed the Vierling as well as how you weathered the monotone scheme.

Bravo!

Beautiful builds, Tat and Eric. Two excellent examples of great one color schemes as already pointed out by Gary.

Thanks for participating

Thank you for your kind words Gary, Jesper!

It's my second attempt at using oils for weathering -- was quite happy with results that I held off on any chipping being wary that I may make a mess out of it, so very near the deadline. Anyways, this was supposed to be the prototype so I guess it can pass off without much need to show wear and tear

Now I can go off to do some building again -- been yearning for the smell of glue for a while now

Cheers,

Tat

Very nice build Tat. The fading and the colour modulation was really well done.

Almost done, the end pictures i will post tomorrow.
I only used from the really nice Revell SD.Kfz7 box only the 88 for this campaign however as its rather easy built i thought of doing dio of some sort.
As i'm building a He111 with winter coat i soon had an idea for a winter camo 88 in a revetment.




Base for the winter setting



Tomorrow more

Lovely looking builds, I hope someday to come close. Towards the end of April I was just going to quietly un-enlist as a result of posting idleness, but the extension means I'll go for it:

The date says it all really.



All the sub-assemblies ready for paint.



The eagle-eyed will see it has the number plate used by both Tamiya and Trumpeter for their armoured sd.kfz.7/2, which probably means there's a picture of it somewhere (and also means I'll have to find 2 different number plates at some point in the future)
When it came to the gun I realised I have to learn soldering first, so the unit off the Tamiya Mobelwagen was conscripted



As a small improvement I drilled out the barrels and gave it a spare Dragon flak sight.


Thank you for the campaign and forcing me to actually finish a model

Kind words. Thanks Gary Shively.
During collecting the modern Flaks, I realize the same barrel among the German Gepard (Tamiya), JGSDF's Type 87 AW (Trumpeter) and Britain Chieftain Marksman (Takom). Franchise in real world?

K.

I've got to call this one done for now. I'll do more weathering once it's placed in a dio. Any thoughts on improvements are very welcome!

It was fun watching everyone's builds!

Also my 88,

The base is a mix of sand and plaster with a topping of natrium bicarbonaat


And the result of the winter camo 88


and both together it looks like this, unfortunately i was not able to find a 1/72 figure to fit in this small dio






very nice builds looking forward to a FY3

Are we supposed to upload photos to the Gallery?

...I have trouble with this every time I have to do it. I can never seem to get the photos small enough.

Hello Mark, great campaign and thanks for the ribbon.

@Steve, you may down load the "FastStone Photo Resizer" to resize your photo, it's free and very easy to use.

Steve,
You should also be able to resize images in MS Paint, but if you still have trouble you can e-mail them to me and I will resize and post them. Starting photos (in the thread) and finishing photos (thread and gallery) are a pretty standard part of all campaigns so we really need to figure out how to make it work for you.

Jan,
Your ribbon has been posted. Nice 88--one of my favorites.

I got em in! MS Paint was really easy. Not sure what I was doing before that was such a pain, but this has made life at the end of campaigns MUCH better. Thanks a ton!
