Nice looking models!

You all should have your ribbons now. 24 finishers. I couldn't award erichvon as he wasn't listed as having enlisted. I will have to see if there is something I can do about that.

Still time to finish and get a picture into the Gallery though!

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.

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

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.

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

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.
