I have both models and looking for opportunities to build it together. Initially, also wanted to build a Quad Gun Tractor but changed his mind, I can see that he is very popular here. I have a version with a gun.

I wish I'd noticed this campaign earlier. I've just finished two Krupp Protzes, the cargo version not AT! Buggar! Fortunately I have two Mercedes Benz L3000's to build. Would they be okay? If so I'm in with one of those as at the moment I'm building stuff for a dio I've got planned and I plan on filling one of these with fuel drums for a fuel and ammo dump that will be part of the dio.

Got the undercarriage of my Quad tractor done:



The motor and exhaust are just dry fit until the whole thing gets re-primed then will be painted separately. Re-worked the front bumper to replace the molded-in tow shackles and open up the front winch guide rollers:

Hi,
Mark, your Quad looks cool. I like details that you've done on front bumper. It is some pics of progress on my Sd.Kfz 7, next will be washing and primer. Model is not assembly, so I'll have easier task with painting.

Some nice work by everyone here I hope to get started soon on my built but I have a question for the Campaign Leader.
Will a Krupp Protze
 photo 14582749566_5087e60ff0_b.jpg
be considered a Workhorse? There was over 7000 units produced and was heavily used to tow artillery, especially the PaK 36, and transport motorized infantry.
If approved that will be my entry

Can't wait to see what's next for Pawel's build. His work is always amazing!

Interior of my Quad tractor is done, and the major subassemblies are ready to go together:



Added a field mod rack for the spare tire and replaced the grill with some stainless steel mesh (I hate working with that stuff, but it's what I had on hand). Also working on replacing the tarp roof--the molded plastic one is too clunky to look realistic.

I'm new here. Trying to enter my first campaign. Started a Quickway Crane in October. My dad operated one in a pontoon bridge unit during WWII. I've never scratch built before, this is my first attempt. Am also using the White 666 as the carrier truck. Hope I'm doing this campaign thing right?? I've got the boom done and most of the kit bashing done to the truck.

Pic of my Dad and his Quickway sometime in the fall of 1944.

(I don't know how to make pics bigger. - I'm still learning)

Was I supposed to get my entry approved prior to posting? Sorry if I violated rules.

Figured I better get this done before Pawel blows us all away with his fantastic work! Here's my Tamiya Quad Tractor:







It's a pretty rough kit by Tamiya standards, and the windows were a real pain, but I think it turned out not too bad. AM wheels, but otherwise all mods were scratched.

Thanks Mark for kind words. Your Quad is pretty nice. I have one in my stash. I want to build it in near future.

Poking along with my Quickway. Hobby Boss White 666 is a good kit for the tractor.

My kit for this campaign is the German Heavy Truck Einheitsfahrerhaus L-4500. This is the 1/35 kit by Zvezda (kit #3647).

Hello,
I finally found the time to make photos of the finished vehicle.
Great campaign gentlemen, thanks. Congratulations to all the beautiful models. Later I'm going to add this set of figures.
