Thanks Clayton,
It was a fun build but tiny pieces tough on the eyes.

Hi all
my K9 is nearly complete as I decided for a OOTB build. As you can see on the pics, the barrel is huge! It is even longer than the hull.





Considering the thickness of Academy baskets rods, this should be some stand-off armor



Nearly time for some paint. Does anybody have an idea of a close match in the Tamiya range for the green, the brown and the sand colors?

TIA
Olivier

Olivier, nice build. It is definitely a beast!

Tom, a little cool gun. Are you making a diorama with the crew?

Looking forward to see more with colors on

Yes, I wonder if my "photo studio" tent will be large enough to make the pictures of the finished model

I'm making the crew to practice painting figures. They came with the kit, but were originally from the Karl Gerat crew. They came with some extra arms, but in no way do they represent the figures on the box top.

Made some more progress and hopefully will make some more progress tomorrow.

I manage to figure out how the the tracks go together. They are very nice little tracks with lots of detail.



Here they are on the back of the hull.



Here is the elevation mechanism mounted to the hull.



Here is the other side



Another shot of the back of the hull



Hopefully more tomorrow

Cheers

Here is my latest progress.

Nicely detailed ammo crate with a shell. Picture do not do it justice. Nice wood grains.





Gun barrel assembled. Some filler put into one of the small spaces.





Superstructure assembled.



Test fitting of upper and lower hull





Perhaps tomorrow I will start tackling the tracks.

Brian, that Sturnmorser looks like it would fall over backwards!

Got the camo on my Morser, chipping, overall wash and pin wash done, some more oil work, dirt and decals to come. Also have to add the pads on the wheels.

Here are my finished photos of the sIG 33 Infantry Gun.
I'm going to a figure painting class and the end of May. After I finish the figures I'll add photos of them as well.
Great Campaign, there are a lot of great models and I'm sure there are more to come.

Wow, some very cool stuff taking shape here! Except for the tracks, I've finished my PLZ05 - some springtime balcony shots for you guys:






More pics to come once I get the basecoat and camouflage on.

Have fun,

Jerry

My heavy Thanatar Plasma mortar is done. A very cool kit and something out of the ordinary. It stands 12 cm tall.

Looking forward to see everybody's campaign entries.

That is one of the wildest things I've ever seen, Jesper!
Awesome paint work, especially the metal parts, they look completely convincing!

Very good work everyone! I just finished moving from California to Michigan and managed to find a little time for an update. This is the AFV Club lefh18/40. Pretty complicated little gun with a lot of fiddle bits that are easy to break. I launched one of the spin handles across the living room the other day but luckily my wife was able to spot it and saved the day.

I started on my first of 2 or 3 projects for this build... the first two are almost identical kits. Renwals M-55 SPG in 1/32nd scale. The kit is as OOB as I can make it, but there are a fair amount of parts missing. This has led me to opening another identical kit, a Revell repop in the "History Makers" series. This still leaves me with the challenge of not having those parts for the second build, but I am hoping to either find parts somewhere or get good and just scratchbuild and pour molds for the parts I need (mostly road wheels and return rollers).


Here you can see a couple of the cross kitted parts and a piece of rod I have to use in place of one of the other parts






Seriously doubting these decals are going to work for me, but they have been coated twice with Microscale decal bonder, so hopefully they will make it through their water bath when the time comes


Fair enough to say this simple build is going to be challenging to finish from a parts standpoint
The second M-55 will have extensive scratchbuilding done to it as soon as I finish the first. As I build the first I can see alot of areas that can be improved or accurized.

Bryan- Wow, must be nice to have a wife looking after your carpet monster,

Brian- Gotta love those ancient kits, you find 'em for $5 at a yard sale, and you never know what you'll get,

PS- "M" Scale??? Never heard of that term before!!!

Yeah, this box had almost no pieces on sprues (which doesnt matter because all parts have numbers ON them) and when I started trying to inventory I quickly realized there was another kit in there, an M-41 Walker Bulldog (neither kit has a complete parts count but I have plannnns)
