A few more of the build and were it stands. What was a green camo has now turned to a desert scheme. Still need to do antenna's and a few more bags. The decals were a nightmare as they were silvering bad. Compared to how it was, I am much happier.

For my first entry, I'm planning on completing my Winter Eastern front 1944 diorama that has been sitting idle in a back room. The first photo is the 'inspiration' I used for the diorama to show a Tiger1 (Mid) from sPzAbt.505 preparing for a Winter defensive position. The next photo is the Tamiya Tiger1 (Mid) used and will have added a crew from various figure sources such as Tahk, Jaguar, Verlinden and various others (still deciding). I'll finish up the Tiger and then complete the base in the Winter defense theme.

There is no limit to when you can join a campaign. In particular, this campaign (as well as Aeroscale's "Hangar Queens" and Model Shipwright's "Dry-Docked" campaigns) lasts the whole year. These campaigns are pretty much annual. We all have unfinished models!

Don't forget to enlist here.

Gary -

Hope it isn't too late to jump on board. It has been quite a while since I've done or found the time for much serious modeling, and I'm very anxious to get it going again. I've recently 'Retired' from Boeing after 28 yrs and finally can dedicate time to the hobby and relax, enjoy it like in the past. Anyway, I thought this would be a great Campaign to get myself back into it and complete several 'in limbo' builds I've got. I have several to choose from and I'd like to focus first on those I have set up in dioramas that require finishing. I wasn't sure if they would qualify. They're basically single builds with figures and bases that need completion for either the kits, figures, and/or display base. Really looking forward to being active on Armorama again and enjoying builds in future. Bring on the Campaigns!

just a small update did a pin wash on the panel lines, painted the M2, stowage, pioneer gear, and extra wheels. I still need to do some touch up and add the archer decals I got for this guy.

Karl, that is some beautiful work, conjecture be damned!
Glad to see your progress.

Are you aware or enlisted in the Hangar Queen campaign over on the Aeroscale part of the site?

One campaign per build, but another place to showcase old stalled builds.

Mike



Thanks, Mike! No, I'm not familiar with the Hangar Queen campaign but it sounds like something I should check out. 90% of the time I'm an armor guy, but right now I've actually got 3 aircraft going and no tanks(!?). I can't recall anything like this before for me.

Some small progress being made. I've started the pilot's position, mounted the ladder to the cockpit, added the front ball turret flooring, and navigator's chart table. Now working on the ventral gondola machine gun mount (the machine gun will have to be scratch built, as well), flooring, and canopy. Slow work but I'm enjoying this first significant foray into scratch building.

made a little progress over the night. I am working with two different Abrams from academy. both will end up in desert scheme but will still be different.

The first was once painted in a green camo I had tried.





After once thinking I was okay with it, I guess I just kept wanting to do an idea so striped it and repainted.

Managed to get the rear wheel cover cut off.





Some weathering done. But it has much more to go still.

Panther A wheels, the hell that never ends..


ha just read this and was thinking same last night while priming my panther.



too right.. I think I finished the wheels before I stalled on that build again.. so it did not make it to AMPS 17, maybe Armorcon this fall.
I ought to dig it out tomorrow and see what else I have to do on it.

Carry on, I hear they can be 'finished'...

Making SOME progress with the Amiot 143. I only wish there were some better pictures, schematics, etc., of the interior available for research. Some of this is sheer guesswork. While I'm okay with some guesswork, I'd rather have something concrete to work with.

Anyone mind if I jump in? I have a Tamiya M60A1 that has been sitting partially built for at least 5 years.

Christian, I know how you feel. My Merkava has been stalled for months.

Gary, I am just like you! I suck at models but I like building them (just not painting them). But that's fine; it's a hobby, not a job.

With photobucket now borked, here's what my build looked like originally



Since then I have sprayed a new wash coat of colour as I wasn't happy with the wide variation, so now they are a bit closer while not being exactly the same,




I will be resurrecting the thread I started when I originally began these builds as there will be some extra changes with aftermarket and scavenged equipment from other kits.

My BMPT is JUST as un-finished as it was....I swear to the styene Gods that I'll apply paint to it...I will.
