I really like how that camo came out Wayne. I wouldnt have thought you did it by hand.

I'm in with this paper flakpanzer

Been hanging around since the turn of the century. Hopefully not the only one I'll finish this year.

Black applied, flat coated with MM Acryl Clear Flat. Tracks assembled and base coated. Now the weathering begins!

Another week has passed and more progress has been made.
Remember that MM Acryl mix of baby poop tan?



Well here she sits all base coated in sand.





MM Acryl Field Drab, straight from the bottle. I chose to hand paint the pattern.

First coat.





Second coat.





I used a mix of Vallejo "Yellow Tan" and "Sand Yellow" for the Earth Yellow patches.





I'll be using Vallejo "Black Gray" for the crow's feet.

These are up next.

The interior looks amazing!





Thank you, sir! I recently got a book on the plane that has some great (and explanatory) pictures and diagrams, and it has helped me to understand the structure far better than I had. The problem now becomes: How much detail is too much detail?! If I was going to be a real stickler I'd have to rip out the whole interior and start over--but THAT ain't happenin'! No, I'm just gonna have some fun with this. I have a Smer Amiot 143 in my stash; maybe in a year or two I'll build that--and REALLY go to town!

Got a little work in over the weekend. The Amiot's gondola is finally starting to take shape. The navigator's seat, map cases and folding chair were positioned in place; the pilot's position with the secondary (lower) control got some attention, as well. When it's cemented into place, the secondary wheel will fall into position in front of the navigator's seat. On to scratch building the rest of the interior!

Nice progress gents! Here is mine where I am just about finished with the build stage. A ton of parts went into this tiny little TD.
Will begin the painting of the upper structure, gun and tracks separate of the body then bring everything together for the final camo and weathering.

I managed to get my Tamiya Tiger1 (Mid) finished up and the pieces together to complete the diorama. It shows a Tiger1 of sPzAbt.505 on Eastern front, late Winter 1944. Crew is prepping for expected Russian counterattack.

Next up for 'Unfinished 2017' project is to finish up a Tamiya PzKpfw IIIL of Afrika Korp.

Mrclark7 - That is one impressive Abrams.
AgentG - The Patton(forgive me if this is incorrect) looks like the kind of build I enjoy. I too use putty to represent cast surfaces. I look forward to the build phase coming to completion.

I have a small update. And, this is about as far as I can go, before I find the rest of the parts. Should be back, at it in a few weeks.

Another shot of the build. It needs a lot more finishing for me. The windows, antenna, rear track, rear wheel, top machine gun, decals, ammo cans, and extra tracks, just to name a few.

I still have another Abrams needing finishing, and last night while pondering, I went looney and ordered two more Abram tanks. doh!

I have an idea for what might be the first style attempted on here. At least while doing searches I am not seeing anything nor in google. So cant wait to show that idea. Plus it will put two different versions in the stable.

I love the academy abrams because you can grab one for $25 on amazon and it lets you build fast so you can get to painting to try ideas and techniques.

Does anyone know if the British still use camouflage nets, when the Challenger 2 was in service? I have a stockpile of Verlinden stuff I would prefer to use, rather than having to order some.

^^^^ yep another one to add to my list.



There is little flash and everything fits together very well. So far, my only problem has been with the return rollers and mating the hull halves together. To be honest, I don't remember how I built the rollers. The problem, with the hull are the etch mud guards. They don't fit, with the lower hull.

Here's my Challenger 2 turret as it sits. I will add a couple of subtle filters and start the weathering, this evening. It looks black, in the photos but is rather a dark, bronze green.

I decided this campaign would give me the push I required to finish an M60A1.

I started a USMC M60A1 with ERA in NATO camo. After a bit I decided to fill the ERA mounting holes and back date it a bit, but retain the NATO tricolor finish. That bit of indecision as well as all the work correcting the ancient Tamiya kit, stalled the build for half a decade.

Then I remembered one of my all time favorites, MERDC Gray Desert. That and this campaign got this one back on track.

We begin.



What I started with.





Finally assembled the dreaded road wheels.



Turret and it's mods. Yes I realize I initially used the wrong air cleaners. They were too well cemented to the fenders to remove.



Primer finally. Good old spray bomb Krylon Gray.





Base color, a mix of MM Acryl colors.



Stay tuned.

Very nice! Every Abrams needs a well-armed Minion or two...
