Again, Thanks and congratulations to all! We've made a great team.

I would like to take this opportunity to invite you all to take part in my next proposed Campaign

Gaz



Gaz,
Many thanks for managing this campaign. It was my first one ever and it was a fun - seeing others to complete their models motivated me a lot and of course the "DEADLINE" itself was also a super-turbo button
Best regards,
Zsolt

Gary, it was a good campaign but my stug iv failed to get across the finish line. It stalled with build nearly complete and a base coat on. Guess I'll be signing up for the unfinished build campaign.
Well done to everyone who finished. Some awesome builds here to be sure!
Cheers

Thank you for the campaign and being so open to all the topics, including Sci-Fi. Also, thanks for the reminder to upload to the group photo gallery---I just did.

Great campaign...I had lots of fun!

To One and All,
First of all, Gaz, thanks for the comments and for running a good campaign. It was fun.

Lakota, the paint used on this was some of my old Polly-S Pullman Green for the basecoat. This was then lightened with Depot Buff (a sort of German Yellow) to cloud the main panels of the green to add some variation. Decals used were some of the Archer rub-ons. I will start on some actual weathering and detail painting this week, so yes, I will post some further pictures.

Now on to my Poland 1939 Pz. II build.

Stephen,
Congrats! Nice work! When you get it weathered and on a base, you'll have to post some pics for us to admire!

@Nick-Awesome job, thanks for sharing your build. Just when you think you've seen it all...
@Stephen-Nice model, congrats. Did you use Tamiya paints for your paint scheme? What color? I like it...
Take care,
Don "Lakota"

To One and All,
Here is my completed build of the Dragon JSU-122. I still need to do the weathering, which I will do when I build the base for it. Otherwise, the model is finished, but for a few tweaks. Thanks for a good campaign and a reason to complete a model that I have been meaning to build for a while.

Hey Everyone!
Thank you for making this a great campaign! It was a pleasure for me to organize it for such an enthusiastic and talented group of model builders.

On a side note, there are a few who still who haven't submitted a photo to the gallery.
Here: http://gallery3.kitmaker.net/showgallery.php/cat/30535/page/1

I've already awarded ribbons to most, and will check the campaign gallery and the campaign enlistment site over the next few days to see if I am still able to award ribbons to anyone who finished their builds in time but forgot to add a photo to the gallery. I don't know how long I'll be able to make changes before they lock it up.

Great Job Everyone!

Nick,
Fantastic job! I love the look of the Vanquisher! Imagine what the North African campaign would have been like had the Brits not carried on with that 2-pounder for so long. Congrats on finishing!

Andy,
Great job on your Stug! Congratulations on completing it on time. It looks good even with wet paint. I'd have never known if you hadn't said anything.

FV215b Vanquisher

In reality only a "wooden mock-up on a Conqueror chassis", here imagined as an operational vehicle!

Carrying markings suggesting it is part of the 7th Armoured Brigade, this brand-new addition to the British Army's Tank Destroyer arsenal is called the FV215b Vanquisher, a name that will strike fear into all her adverseries!

Based on the very solid Conquerer heavy tank chassis, the FV215b Vanquisher is armed with an enormous 183mm main gun. After such a whopper, the smoke grenade launchers, .50 cal and .30 cal MG secondary armaments hardly seem worth mentioning. Operationally, the sheer size of the 183mm shells would have meant a less-than-stellar rate of fire, so a first-round hit is highly desirable - and extremely deadly!
