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

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.

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:

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.

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.

Oops! I had been working for about an hour when I realized I never posted my starting photo. Hope I don't get disqualified! Picked up this kit still in plastic at a second-hand store just before the movers packed us up in August. Just now getting around to starting it after finishing up another campaign build.



As you can see in the picture, I'm also adding DEF Models resin wheels.

Alvaro,

Couldn't find any actual photos but here’s a screenshot that I pulled from YouTube of a scratch-built 1/6 scale Opel Blitz showing the exhaust pipe hanger detail (3:27 into the video).

… and the full video. Enjoy! Opel Blitz Truck – 1/6th Scale

I have a miniart US Armoured Bulldozer to review; I'd like to build it for a feature as well. So I'd go with that one.

Well since the campaign is already well on the way Id better not waist any more time. I have started to work on AFV Clubs Kfz.11. I guess this vehicle would be eligible since it was designed to tow guns. The kit looks good so far, but contrary to what numerous review say it DOES have pin marks, they are visible and theres a lot of them.

Johan, you got me going with your PE work. So along with a resin wheel set, I went and ordered a PE upgrade for the CMP Chevy C60L GS Truck Cab 13. … Out of the box gone out of control!

Anytime...

I have been working away on the Albion at quite a rate this week, and so it is pretty much finished, I still need to do some more weathering and apply the decals, but so far, I am pleased with the result!


Chassis engine and transmission, pre weathering.


The cab, now the handbrake here is a little heath robinson as my scratch building skills are somewhat lacking to put it kindly, and the original was lost to the dreaded carpet monster, so I did what I could with a piece of sprue, an off-cut from an old guitar string, and a little filler


The cab in place and the engine weathered down to look like it has done a few miles


Weathering in progress underneath


here is the basic Albion AM463 as used in a multitude of roles by the British armed forces during the second world war pretty much completed.


Getting a little more role specific with the addition of the fuel tank and pump.


Fuel pump gubbins


Base colour re-patched where needed and now with a camo scheme painted on

Nothing more right now, but more soon, sorry this has been a bit of a long one but this is a much more simple build than I was expecting, Airfix have seriously stepped up their game recently and their new tool kits are very impressive, especially compared to their older offerings! I still wouldn't compare them to to likes of Tamiya, but the new releases are really nice kits!
