Hi all!
Going to try and actually complete a campaign ...once and for all! I'll be enlisting with my unfinished 1/35 Tamiya Opel Blitz, pictured below as it appeared at the completion of the recent Poland 1939 Campaign ...of course - unfinished!

That's the great advantage we have over airplanes and ships!

Congratulations on another fine build.

Hi Guys, calling my KV-1 complete. I tried some different material and techniques for mud effects since #%^#*^ tracks were a pain in the #%% and broke

I've got the base coat (white) on the Tunguska hull. The tracks are assembled and primed. I'm about to start masking the areas of the hull that will get hit with gray over the weekend.

Got this one done in time for ArmorCon but just now getting the photos online. It was a project within a project with all the interior goodies, but I'm glad it no longer lives the life of a shelf queen!

I started assembling the tracks last night, 104 links on the left side. I'm going to get the right side done tonight. Once They've had a day or so to dry I'm going to take the tracks and road-wheels back off for painting.

I'm hoping to give the lower hull its base coat (white) over the weekend.

Another finisher! Well done!

This is beginning to look like MLD's Campaign. He's finished off 2 kits and may finish a third before next week.



Congrats Cam for another one off the shelf of shame and into the display case. Well done! Go buy yourself another TWO models... -grin-

As for me finishing these, it's not too hard to do with so many shelf/hangar queens to pick from and soooo many low-hanging all but done fruit to choose from! But thanks!

I still have that Panther w interior from 2012 to finish though..

Building has been going well but the PB problems have derailed my postings. I will try and link a pic of my Sherman III DV off Imgur

WIP, not a long term shelf queen of a project, but one getting some bench time lately.

Meng's pickup, Live Resin's mg, mount, sight and my pedestal.
Due on the Armorcon tables this Sat... tick tick tick...

Here's the Panda 2S6M Tunguska kit that has been taunting me for over two years now...



I've got the hull and road wheels primed. I've still got to assemble the tracks and the missile tubes and prime the turret.

It's going to be painted in a three-color arctic digital camo pattern.

Thanks, Gary. It's been challenging, considering that this is the first time I've attempted any extensive scratch building. It can be pretty intimidating to begin, but then you familiarize yourself with the materials and the hit-or-miss approaches to working with them. Then you get a little bit bolder with every step and it really gets fun. Now I find myself thinking hey, I've got a Smer Amiot 143 on hand--I'll build THAT in a completely different way!

Your interior looks quite amazing, especially since it is in 1/72 scale!

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).

My TOS-1 is dead, so I'll change it with another one who need's to be finished.

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....
