Life has been busy lately, but I've still managed to get a little bit of work in. Slowly but surely the Amiot 143 is taking shape. Some more interior details have been added. After I've cut, divided with simulated hinges, and set the windows (from Evergreen stock), it'll be time to join the fuselage halves. Exhaust pipes have been added to the engine nacelles; bracing has been set to the fore of the upper rear turret position; the silver ring positioned on the lower rear machine gun port served a dual purpose: as a track for both a MAC 34 machine gun and a retractable segmented canopy which I have yet to build. Still a long way to go, but I think I see the light at the end of the tunnel (which a wise man once told me could be the light of an oncoming train).

Meng pickup WIP as a CIA truck Afghanistan 2001, not identical to the third photo, but more 'inspired by'

Just got the Ammo by Mig washable dust on and scrubbed back with a stiff brush. I could have taken more off, but I'm happy with the effect so far.





the BEAUTIFUL Live Resin Mg is still WIP as well


Armorcon is Sept 23, tick tick tick....

I am actually building 3 Abrams right now instead of just the two that I originally started the campaign with. I thought I would do a quick group pick. Trying to finish the middle one first.

The second pic shows the number two Abrams that I am slowly doing also as is in line next to finish. I am trying to decide if it will be left clean or with gear all over it also.

Well, like a lot of modellers, i have way too many in-progress projects. Perhaps joining this campaign might be a good plan to finish off at least one of them

I'd like to join with this Trumpeter Centauro i started in 2012 for a campaign on a Dutch forum. While building i remember having a conversation with a fellow modeller who was building a Panther about the size of our barrels. I will let you fill in the maturity of that conversation, but let's keep it at "mine's bigger"
Of course i had to cheat a bit and glue the PE on the barrel last monday...

This is how he looks likes today.

I may be able to pull off a burst barrel, but it is iffy.

Bummer! My mother would sometimes break a model when she was dusting them.

I may not be able to complete this campaign. While I was out of town, my mom managed not just to break the barrel, but to partially tear the barrel off. I say "partially", because it looks torn. It did not snap, as I suspected it would. While I will build another, I just can justify budgeting a replacement kit. Happy building.

Finished up the "Afrika Korp" diorama. A Tamiya PzKpfw IIIL with TAHK and Jaguar figures. Now freed up to complete goal of getting a couple more static builds finished. Have a Tamiya King Tiger (Porsche turret) and a Tamiya JagdPanther (Late) that I'd like to get done. Another Campaign starting soon so will have a full plate (best kind to have though). Thanks for looking.

Kelly,
The glass on the Panda Uh1D was a drop fit. The pilot door glass sits behind the framing, but unless it is a contest build it is not too noticeable (and MANY other issues will need to be addressed in that case.)

MUCH better than other 1/35 helos.

The MRC OH58 I built had TERRIBLE instrument coaming/windshield fit, the DML OH6 family is notorious for the glass fit, and the MRC vinyl feed chutes will melt the unbagged clear parts in long term shelf tests (ask me how I know)



;( that what bums me out about so many heli models.

Todays work was trading out the glass that look so bad with the included plastic sheeting. I am liking this new idea I am trying. i think I will be doing all my models this way for now on. As I have multiple shade of colors for reflecting.



Here you can see a drill bit placed in front.

Thank you all.

I'm having difficulty in uploading a photo to the gallery. I keep receiving a message stating the page is not working.

Anyone else experiencing these issues?

I had the same problem trying to upload pics for the Hangar Queen campaign.

Nice work Wayne, That's a camo scheme you don't see done very often.
