Here's my Trumpeter entry. I built the Tamiya KV II years ago when it first came out and the detailing was pretty good, despite the parts count being smaller than what we generally see in today's kits. I've built one of the Trumpeter KV I kits a few years ago and, like Tamiya, although the parts count was low, it still built into a great kit. So, with this being my very first Armorama campaign, I'm looking forward to this build for a variety of reasons. Thanks for hosting this one. Cheers! chuck

William, the tracks are awful.

Hard to paint and too big for the tiny tank.

Greetings! I'm signing up for this fun campaign with the model below....a Marder I. Love these hybrid type vehicles.

Looks like a nicely detailed kit right out of the box. It even comes with a couple of figures.

I must admit, the box art is atrocious! Some executive at Trumpeter must of had a child in art school to come up with this hideous rendering. Hahaha!
I'm looking forward to a fun campaign, and getting a lot of inspiration from everyone's builds. Happy modeling. Bill

Hi Rory,

Thanks for the recommendation. This is the first time I've built this kit but I did build their T-64B Mod. 1975 a few years ago - actually, that was the first kit I completed after taking up the hobby again - and it was excellent, went together beautifully, just like you said.

On a Russian modelling site once, they said that Trumpy did not get the turret shape quite right on their T-64s but everybody agreed that this wasn't an issue on the BV kit because the reactive armor obscured the turret shape.

Hey guys,

Here are my start photos for the T-64BV. For aftermarket stuff, I'll be using Trumpeter's own indy links and SKP lenses:

I don't know how much I'll get done in the next few weeks, but some time in the new year (2018 already?!) at the latest I'll be tearing into it.

Have a fun campaign, everybody!

Jerry



I Have to say that this is a lovely kit. Mine went together beautifully and I had 0 issues with the build. 10/10 Would build again

if I can finish the battle damage campaign, I'll be starting on 1 December with the Trumpy VK3001(H) Pz.Kpfw. VI Ausf. A. I got it off of eBay a few months back and it has inched its wat to the top of the pile.

Cheers

actually, I might be able to get that in on another campaign in time.

Might go for a UN B1 on this one.

There is a lot of modeling info out on the Fishbed but the Fishpot has been a different story. Best guess may have to be good enough.

I had in mind a much weathered bird looking like it had been parked outdoors in readiness for an alert. The AL would be dull & have weather streaks from being out in the elements.

Hey guys,

As I hurry up to try to get my T-72 done in time for the conclusion of Mk. 3, why not go for Mk. 4? I'll be doing another Soviet Cold War subject, the T-64BV.

I'm up for this one. I have a number of kits that want building. Right now the SU-9 Fishpot kit is showing me some skirt . . .



Oh, the sooner it starts the better for me. I really want to get into that Fishpot.



I'm doing that one for a Campaign at Aeroscale,
2nd Gen Fighters Campaign.



How is it going together? I have found little modeling reference on this bird. Basic things like wheel well color seem elusive. What are you using?




Paul, so far no problems.
Trumpeter's colour guide for the interior is vague.
Most of what I found for the wheel well is either silver of aluminium.
I used Tamyia X-11 and then used some black wash .

So far I got the wings, tail, cockpit done.
Just need to mask the canopy and add some colour.

Just needed some filler for the fuselage and one wing, the other wing fitted perfectly...

Gaps:


Big Bird..
