Tamiya, 3T Cgo Trk (Opel Blitz), 1/35

Hey all, nice completions, keep them rolling in!

Well, with the exception of some very fragile details, I'm going to call this one complete.
Delicate items like the side view mirror, etc. will be affixed to the Blitz when it no longer risks handling damage and is permanently mounted to it's diorama base in the near future. If you attend the New England shows you just might see this one entered at Armorcon, Danbury, CT and Baycon, Smithfield, RI this year.

Now for a Diorama Campaign!

Looks real with the Opel Blitz, Richard.

I'm going on my unfinished kits.
T-64A, waiting the weathering. Leo 2A6EX, painting the NATO camouflage.

Well, I almost made this an unfinished unfinished build. This was initially for the Trumpeter 3 campaign, but I realized while I was finishing up the decals that I had not formally enlisted and by the time I tried to correct it, it wouldn't allow new recruits--so the campaign was unfinished. Flash forward to now and it is only a few days until the end of this one and I never posted anything.

I've been in grad school and doing student teaching, so my mind is a bit scrambled lately.

This is built OOB except for some additional markings by Peddinghaus. I have not done the rail section yet as I am building another car for the Trumpeter 4 campaign and the two will be united on a common base at that time.

Been trying, but after I submit my pics, it spins its gears, says images uploaded successfully, and then goes to a white screen with only the Kitmaker banner at the top. I still have a few days to hammer at it.

Okay, so I have tried several times now to upload my pics. I had no trouble last night uploading my pics for the Takom campaign, but my Unfinished campaign pics are still not making it to the final submission step. I upload, it says they are processed, and it either dumps me to a white screen or dumps me in the gallery where all the pics EXCEPT mine are visible.

Anyone with more experience with the gallery have a suggestion?

Yes, the gallery is fussy. I've usually found that when it claims to have processed my photos and yet did nothing, the files were too big. Usually this means greater than 3MB, but it could be smaller. I try to resize my photos to 1024 x 680, that usually gets them down to 1MB or less and it usually works.

Mine had already been downsized, so I'm not sure what the deal is.

All done and uploaded to the gallery. still think this is not that bad of a kit for practicing paint apps on and even with basic painting it will turn out 100% better and as they are only around $12 they make a good test bed for trying out new techniques. Also I'd would definitely recommend this kit to someone wanting to get a youngster in to modeling as its easy to build right out of the box with a low part count so as not to overwhelm them and the bonus of the youngster being able to play with it afterwards.

I might be interested in doing this kit again and seeing if i can take parts from Revell's old Black magic M4 kit to make a more detailed M4A3

The Italeri Shermans were quite good for their day. I have one of the original DML M51 kits that used an Italeri Sherman as a base. Congratulations on a good finish.

Congratulations to all who finished, particularly liked the Jagdpanzer IV. I'll not be joining the happy club this year, the weather's been sh***y the last few weeks and spraying in the unheated garage is no fun. And as this hobby is supposed to be fun the Coelian and Kugelblitz are on hold until sometime in the new year when the days are longer.

Happy New Year everyone

Close finish, but a good finish!

Just like the others that crossed the finish line: great job! And for those that didn't: there's always 2018 I know i'll be joining as well.
