Sorry to see life got in the way of art John. Gaz has proposed a Italian campaign and given a lot of the stuff in Afrika Korp went there, you might be able to complete the Zundapp in that build. Gaz allows part built ones to be in his GB's - great incentive to finish shelf queens.

Dang!
Was hoping that my Zundapp was able to make it out alive from this excellent campaign that Gaz put on. Even tho I joined one campaign and changed my build from Rommels Grief to a Zundapp. Once again (same thing happen last year), baseball took up all my modeling time.
Anyways....excellent builds I see here Gents, keep up the good work!!

John

Gaz, is there another desert campaign in the works?

Yeah, my name got switched over here; don't remember why. Sure it was so I wouldn't forget something...

Anyhow, I bet you'll succumb some day. I was only going to build WWII kits but now I have a Polar Lights classic Enterprise AND a Perfect Grade Millennium Falcon, plus a pile of Hasegawa and Tamiya Volkswagen kits.

And a Pteranodon, for some reason. Has there been a dinosaur campaign? Now I'm thinking of The Land That Time Forgot and having a crossover campaign. Hmmmmmmm......

If it's not starting until then, I wouldn't say no to starting that kit. Probably have more display shelves built by then as well.

As far as big, well it's not the biggest I have but it definitely is not small, either. It could ride piggy-back on my B-17G. And if you know what gets talked about over at LSP then know I am on the list of people anxiously awaiting that Lancaster. I'm not afraid of big pieces of plastic!



I go by the same handle over at LSP, but I don't have room for that kind of plastic. I do some 1/32 single seaters, but nothing bigger. But I love to admire the big kits guys do... living vicariously...lol

Still, I'd love to see it.

Shell,
That would be awesome if you could find the time. I'm resetting the Italian Campaign to go from December to June if that helps.

That's gotta be a big kit!

Now... Do you have a 1/35 scale Anzio Annie in your stash?

Gaz



If he doesn't, I do.

Great job, Zon!
Congratulations for completing! Your jeep came out very well!

I'm glad you enjoyed the campaign, as it was my pleasure to host. Hopefully I'll see you in Italy!

Shell: Great work on an interesting vehicle.

I'm slipping in under the wire. Tamiya 1/35th scale SAS Jeep with a little Legends Resin and some Tamiya Allied Accessory set. First time playing with pigments. Learned not to use white spirits over a freshly painted acrylic flat varnish







Now to re-learn how to post to the gallery...

Thank you Gaz for a great campaign and spurring a new interest in early war British armor. I might see you in Italy.

Happy Modeling,
Zon

Well, once I'm done with Big Cats Mk V it's off to Trumpeter Mk IV, Workhorses, Dragon 2018, Anti-Aircraft, MTO, SciFi & Alt History IV, Hot Out of the Molds 2018, and Bandai Star Wars.

So far. Might be going to Italy, as well...

And the finished kit (or as finished as it's going to get for now):











This represents one of the vehicles that sat in Benghazi waiting for spare parts, so it isn't that worn yet.

Now, to finish my Big Cat Mk V.

Finished, with an hour left in my time zone. Can't remember if I posted any photos yet, so here is the initial pic plus some in-progress shots:



I didn't actually start until two weeks ago; I was working on five other campaigns at the same time.

AND I was finishing grad school at the same time, plus work.

Damian,
Fantastic job on that Valentine! Congratulations! Really like the chipping.

Kelly,
Your Honey looks great! Congrats! I like to see those ID panels on British armor, so it's a win-win.

Thank you both for participating!

It's only 1PM Thursday on Baker Island in the Pacific ocean, SW of Midway Island. So, technically there is still almost 11 hours to go.

Of course in 11 hours I'll be asleep and unable to do a 'on-time' check up. That will leave another 5-6 hours for me not to be at my PC... 'hint-hint'

Damian and Kelly. Great work guys. Nice additions to the Brit side of the campaign.

Thanks for joining in.

Really thought I was going to go captured German on this one. But I did not have the right markings. The British decals that came with it were horrible for the area they were to be applied to. So after the turret, I just painted the other flag on the hull.

Miss placed the machine gun. Will look for it later today.

A bit late, but life is giving me treatment like Marine Corps style frantic recruit training. More in a gallery.

Alright everyone,
I've awarded ribbons to those that have completed so far. I think there is still 36 hours to go for any last minute crushing.

I'll be in hospital overnight having a minor surgery, so you won't hear from me until sometime tomorrow.

Until then,

Happy Building!

Gaz




good luck with that. Thanks for the campaign hosting.

Now... Do you have a 1/35 scale Anzio Annie in your stash?

Gaz



No Anzio Annie hiding in the stash, I wish, but I have a few that will fit the bill of the Italy/Sicily time frame. Will post on the thread.

Thanks for the kind words Bryan.

Ken the dio really adds to the overall impression. You did a great job on this one. I enjoyed watching this one - and the sand bags evolve
