Guy, love the Howitzer Halftrack. The build and paintwork look awesome. Glad you added a figure to the project. Vehicles always look better when populated. Hahaha. KUTGW!

Michael, Ken, and Clayton thanks guys. It was a fun, if hurried, build. Only 6 more Dragon U.S. H/t’s in the stash to go!

Hey, since the Artillery Campaign deadline has been extended, I'm doing a 2nd build for it. Yea!!!!

I'm doing the 88mm Gun Flak 18 by Hasegawa in 1/72 scale. I'm also updating the gun crew with a set from Caesar Miniatures. It's the WW2 German Anti-aircraft AA crew set.
The time extension should be enough for me to finish. Thanks for viewing. Let's get busy! Bill

Franck, your Churchill looks very good. Paintwork is modulated nicely.
Linus & Guy, thank you. I'm glad you like how my PLA 105mm Recoilless Gun turned out.

Guy that half track is great. Actually watched Kelly's Heroes just after Don Rickles passed away. Donald Sutherland's turn as Oddball is one of my favourites..."Don't hit me with them negative waves so early in the morning."

William superb scene with the recoil-less rifle.



@Linus; thank you sir! “Woof,woof,woof”!

@William, great work on the recoiless!

Thanks John for the extra time.

I went ahead and burned some midnight (3am actually) oil to complete both guns so I am off the hook in that regard.

Cheers

Mike

Guy, a beautiful halftrack!

A reference photo on those US Halftrack gauges:




Great reference picture, thanks for sharing and for the positive comments. It would appear Archer really got the decals right!

My PLA 105mm Recoilless Gun is finally finished. Hip hip hooray!!!

I'm pleased with the final outcome. It was fun doing something different.

The gun was a breeze to build, though small parts made it a fiddly assembly.

The real challenge to the project was getting the figures to look decent.

The base work was a simple one. A wood plaque, cork subsurface, Woodland Scenic items all combined easily. Railroad tree products and air ferns were also used.

I had a blast participating in this fun campaign. Thanks for viewing and commenting so cordially. Good luck to everyone else in finishing their builds. Bill

Michael, fantastic work on both the LeF 150mm gun and the 88mm PAK. Top notch build and paintwork. Always partial to the deadly 88mm. Keep having fun. Bill

Made the same mistake on the PAK gun I posted earlier. Failed to add the decal markings. Here is how the now truly finished project turned out.


p.s. I modified the front axle so these wheels actually steer with the swing of the drawbar.




This artillery piece is NOT part of the campaign as it was started (years ago!) well before the campaign ever began.
