Hello guys!
Happy Holidays to all!
This is the development of my project.
















And something else.
The Marder I model was the first one I made from the Trumpetter. I expect to see him in development.

And this is the second part of my project.




All my guns are with their tugs. I consider them as one whole.

Mark, excellent looking KV, that's a nice clean build. Trumpeter's KVs are very enjoyable kits.

William, sorry to hear that your Marder has been a bit of a pain, but if you're still having fun, that's what's important. I hope the rest of the hull and the superstructure aren't so much of a struggle.

Happy Holidays, everybody!

Nice builds guys, Kalin, that is a ton of detail on that carriage, nice result for all that work. Mark those KV kits are really great, they put the fun back into modeling, not a lot of extra details to add, and they go together really well. Looking forward to the paint. William, thanks for posting that problem with the tracks, I'll have to watch out for that, probably will go with aftermarket myself when the time comes.

Man oh man, missed the start of this one. Thankfully not by much, got to pull the LAV Recovery variant out of the stash tomorrow and get cracking. For anybody doing an LAV, Black Dog's engine compartment is out, I just scored one on EvilBay.

Update on Marder I.

Suspension subassemblies went together easily. The bogey trucks have a fair amount of detail.

There was some construction issues with the bogey attachment to the lower hull tub.

As stated earlier in the thread, there is a major issue with the kit tracks.
Assembly continues with the hull interior. I will be adding some additional details, and maybe a driver. Having fun. Bill

Kalin, the Morser looks fantastic. Lots of eye candy detail.
Mark, your Kv-8S build looks terrific. Curious to see the painting phase.
Happy modeling. Bill

Hello Mark!
Very good! I like!
I expect to see him in color.I wonder how you will paint the chassis and hull on the inside.

Update on the Soviet KV-8S tank. Trumpeter 01572

The assembly is completed.



This is my first Trumpeter tank build. I must say this was one of the best and enjoyable builds I have done so far. I even had a easy time of it assembling the track links and fitting them around the wheels. Didn't have to swear once.



Painting will take place after Holidays. I plan on using Mission Models Russian Green. This will be the first time using this paint. If anyone has any tips on how to apply the paint they would be most appreciated.

Kalin,

Looking mighty fine. That frame really looks great, can't believe all of the detail packed on it. You are going a fine job with it.

Kalin, great progress on the Mörser 18 - it's really taking shape!

And Mr. K, I'm really looking forward to your ZiL-131 with the Grad (I'm a big fan of Soviet/Russian rockets on trucks).

I made a (slow) start on my T-64 a week or so ago, once I get a reasonable amount done, I'll post some progress pics.

Have fun building, everybody, and Happy Holidays,

Jerry

Hi!
Here's the sequel to my project. The main part of the gun carriage is assembled and the first layer of paint is applied (Tamiya XF63). I encountered a problem with the support plate and required processing. But the kit is old-fashioned.
Good luck to everyone in the campaign.

Hallo guys!
I present to you my progress on my project. The kitmodel is quite detailed and at the moment, the individual parts fit without further processing. Here are some photos.
Coming soon to the second part of my project.
Bye.

Nice choices here, I'm going to enjoy watching this campaign. Jerry, your T-64, and your Osorio Tom are two that I have in my stash.

Well, I'm thinking of doing a winter dio with the Trumpeter KV-2 knocked out with some German sentries directing traffic while the KV-2 acts as a large road sign pointing toward battalion or company HQ.



Cheers everyone!

I know they are addictive; I've already committed to the Workhorse Campaign and am showing some restraint in not signing up for a few more that look great. Maybe sign up for one more, but will wait a bit to see which new campaigns are proposed. Thanks for the Armorama Campaigns welcome.

Welcome to the Campaigns, Chuck! Be careful, they are addictive....



Yeah, Chuck, welcome to the campaigns. This is only my fourth (not counting a couple I couldn't complete in time), but I agree that they're addictive....

Good to see several Soviet builds plus some kits you don't see built too often. This is going to be good!
