Sadly i dint get tound to finishing my model over the last week family have all had a bug so ive had time off work but doin all the caring and running about but no modelling then catching the bug myself irony lots of great work on here though



Sorry to hear that Anthony. Hope you are feeling better.

If there is any consolation in it, you could still enlist in the "Unfinished builds 2017"Group build , it has a 'few months' ( ) left to run, and then we could all still see the result of your work there.

Cheers

I want to thank everyone that enlisted and especially everyone that finished the "Half a Year for a Halftrack" Campaign! There are some beautiful builds in our Gallery. I have awarded the ribbons, please let me know if you didn't get yours! Thanks again, and see you in the next Campaign!!

Glad to see you got a 'wriggle' on with the wavy line camo and finished the campaign Richard. Good to see you tamed that Dragon upper hull too. Thanks for sharing.

Mike glad to see you left the crew a little room to get inside. Nicely done, love all the stowage, makes it look the business.

I hope to join 'Jeeps' too, just I have 2 group builds to finish with looming time frames (no pressure Clayton!!) and the Takom one after that, so I am not committing to too much in future - the lesson has been learned!!

Richard- That camo looks fine to me, nice work! Thanks for showing!
Mike- I love all the extra stuff you've managed to cram convincingly in and on your truck! Thanks for participating, see you in "Jeeps"!!

Some serious weathering (Ardennes Forest mud) will follow with the construction of a diorama base sometime down the road. Meanwhile, this one is done for the campaign. ... Whew!!! 😅

Thank you Clayton, for hosting this awesome campaign. It was a great pleasure to be a part of this fun group and to see all of the fantastic Half-Track builds!

Cheers!🍺

Thanks all for the kind comments -- glad you liked it!

Mike, that half-track of yours surely is packed for one serious mission. Congrats on your finish! Yeah I think I've signed up for the Jeeps as well.

Richard, your camo looks fine. Freehand AB -- that is something I have yet to try myself.

Cheers,

Tat

Richard, Really nice work on your Sd.Kfz. 250/5 and the camo scheme!🍺
I feel your pain when it comes to driver fit ... and all that third-party image hosting BS!

Lovely panzerwerfer Tat, hopefully one day mine will look half as good.
I got the photobucket email a couple of days ago, and while my pictures are still up here, I have decamped to imgur anyway and hopefully I can get it to work (techno-luddite)
Last views before the hull is closed up


Given how many variants of the 250 that Dragon have made you might have thought they'd provide a driver who actually fits the position - this poor man has lost his right foot and half his leg just to get him in the seat and when in the hull his left arm bumps the spare vision blocks while his right arm fouls the instrument panel on the upper hull piece (more surgery - right arm amputation and carving).
And the finished article




I suspect the commander will be having words with whoever mixed the green Tarnpaste, too thin and came out of the AB as too wide a line.
The star aerial made it almost all the way through painting before a careless knock snapped it halfway up, the repair spot looks better to the naked eye.
Thank you for giving me the spur to get another box off the heap

Fantastic Tat. The last part sure lived up to the promise of your chassis pics.

Will be interested to see the whitewash finish when you get around to that, so make sure you post them!
