gotta look into these. thanks for showing.



You're welcome. Notice that some kits can be bought in three styles:
- premium, the model is put together and completely painted.
- basic, the model is put together and basecoated. This is the form of most my models. I then take the model apart, clean mouldlines, paint and assemble again.
- kit form. Basically the kit on sprues. This is the form I will buy all new kits in. Much better than way.

Hope that helps.

Slow progress, but so far no big issues. Next are the last few details and some touch ups. Then weathering can begin.

More to follow

I have been fascinated by French bombers of WW2. They seemed have been designed by an aeronautical engineer and an architect! I have a Heller MB 210 somewhere that needs finishing some day.



Same here! I recently bought a Potez that looks pretty strange. I built that many years ago as a kid, and I'm looking forward to doing it again with better equipment and improved skills. There are a few old Heller kits out there that I'd like to acquire and eventually build. Inter-war French equipment in general fascinates me.

Hi Everyone. Here are the images of a Heller 1/72 Amiot 143 French bomber that I'm entering in this campaign. I love the quirkiness of the plane itself but I'm getting kinda sick of looking at it! My intention is to build an interior; how far I'll get with it remains to be seen, but I'd like to put this build to rest by the end of the year (naturally, I'll be doing 3 or 4 other builds in the meantime).

Sorry guys.. I have a confession to make.
I started a new kit and might even finish it!
(hangs head in shame..)



Trumpeter's new Su-101, fun little kit, falls together.
But it is not done yet, so there is still hope of me stalling and having this show up in UB 2020

I finally made a bit of progress and glued the clear pieces to the inside of the upper hull and turret. No pics since you probably wouldn't be able to see much, but I am moving forward!

Unfinished Builds 2017 is KitMaker-wide. I'd rather it were confined to Armorama-only since Aeroscale and Model Shipwrights have their own unfinished build campaigns. I think this will happen starting next year.

I can honestly see this being a perpetual campaign. Once it is over another of the same theme begins.



Pretty much my only campaign ribbons are from Gettr Done, Unfinished Business or Hangar Queen campaigns...

I know it is only one campaign ribbon per person that completes the models but I'd like to add another vehicle as well. I am pretty much done with this Korean K1A1 minus camo, weathering, etc.



Challenge accepted...
I'm working on my third.

Gary, you can get in on this too. Let's see who knocks off the most shelf queens,
Mike



Ha! If I get one done, it would be a miracle!



That's what makes it a challenge.
It's not like we all don't have a LOT of shelf queens, some lower hanging fruit than others, to finish.

No problem. I have several kits that I hope to get done this time. First is my Merkava but a Tamiya Kettenkrad may slip in there.

Finally decided on what to do for this campaign.
These fellows have been sitting in boxes or on shelves for years waiting for me to get back to them.
All three are Tamiya kits


I will consider this campaign complete if I complete at least both of the Jeeps, or the Chevrolet. Ideally I want to complete all three, as I have some figures and a diorama idea waiting for these guys.
