Update on my 88mm Gun Flak 18. Two (2) days left! Aaaah!

Gunner figure added to his position. Also matte varnished the glossy decal areas.

Painting on the crew figures is done. I added 3 shells to the loader figures.

Remaining kit details are being worked on here. Ammo crates and spent shells are nice additions.
All that remains is making a suitable base for the model. Thanks for viewing. Good luck everyone on finishing the campaign. Bill

Update on my 88mm Gun Flak 18. Three (3) days remaining. Aaaah!

The 88 is complete, well almost. Got to matte varnish the decal areas.

Work continues on my Flak crew. These should be finished today, then I have to make a suitable base for everything. Getting down to the wire.
Thanks for viewing. Good luck everyone on finishing the campaign. Bill

Had a problem with one of the parts on the Britannia Metal gun, some holes were missing....Great Customer Service from John Garcia,of Model Expo (http://modelexpo-online.com/ ), who within 30 minutes of communication agreed to replace the questionable part! Kudos to him!



Well, sad to say, I'll need to shelve this until (hopefully) Artillery 2018...a lot of work to make the useless piece useful...

Update on my 88mm Gun Flak 18. Four (4) days left! Aaaah!

Decal work is underway. The kit decals were bad, so I used decals from my spares collection. Markings make it an Army Flak gun, but it's being used by the Luftwaffe. That's my story! Ha!
Thanks for viewing. Good luck everyone on finishing the campaign.

Smart move! I'm sure I would have done the same. (If I had thought of it!)

Kudos

@Mr.K, great job detailing up the interior of the Bereg A-222.




Mr. K, just as an F.Y.I. - MiniArt now makes a plastic version (available separately) of the Bereg engine (T-55 tank engine) that is even more well detailed than the Verlinden resin version.



Thanks for your words, William and Michael.
The original engine is hidden below the cover, so I decide taking it out, maybe for another show.

Update on 88mm Gun Flak 18.

Base coat is done. Detail painting and weathering are underway.

Painted one figure as a test of color choices. That Luftwaffe blue tuned out pretty well. One down and 5 to go. Fingers crossed.
Thanks for viewing. Bill

Update on my 88mm Gun Flak 18.

In all good conscience, I couldn't build this kit stock. So all the white pieces are styrene details I added via reference material.

Work continues on the Caesar Miniatures figures. Seam lines need removal. Loving this project....especially on a count down clock. Yea!!!!
Hope everyone's builds are going well. Bill

Lap Man, Cool looking D-30 howitzer. That is one well stowed gun in travel mode.
Franck, your Churchill turned out great. Got to love that huge spicket mortar.
Good luck to everyone with the remainder of their projects. Bill

William around my house a brand new #11 blade usually means there will be blood on the ground in the very near future!

Lap Man, your Soviet howitzer went together quickly, and it looks great. Primary painting went well. Enjoy the rest of the project. Bill

2nd entry update for 88mm Gun Flak 18 with crew.

The transport trucks are assembled. The wheels are left off for painting ease. The canon and support frame are done. I still have to make the cruciform base. I started clean-up on the figures. I'm removing the seam lines with a new, sharp #11 blade. There's more updates to follow. Thanks for viewing. Let's get modeling! Bill
