Jerry,

Excellent construction work all around. With all the details, angles and low spots on this one, I'm not sure whether the construction was the most challenging or the painting and weathering yet to come. Great work!

Cheers!

I began work, on the sdkfz 7, yesterday. So far, only the gearbox is complete. I plan on putting in a few more hours, today.

Jerry- continue looking in awe.Your T-62 is stunning even without paint.

THAAD Chassis completed and primed. The lift works perfectly. Metal tubes for the cylinders.

Wow, this campaign has been pretty busy lately! I finished building my T-64BV tonight, pictures in a sec, but first:

Kalin, your Sd.Kfz. 8 is excellent - nice detailing and contrasts between the gray finish and your dust application, which really looks the part.

Ernest, that's an awesome-looking motor for your Wildcat, not to mention all the cockpit details - looking forward to your progress.

Nigel, cool AS-90 under its basecoat, your battle with the mesh on top of the turret (I hate that stuff, too) doesn't show up - good work.

David, same with the THAAD, getting everything lined up on a truck chassis is hard enough without axles not fitting but it looks great!

Bill, the Marder is really shaping up nicely, can't wait to see the exterior painted and the figures in place.

Chuck, clean build so far of the KV-II.

John, nice LAV, looking forward to the paint stage.

The turret of my T-64 was pretty busy with all the reactive armor, snorkels, stowage boxes, etc. but it went together well. Now I need to paint the running gear, fit the side skirts, then mask off the tracks and wheels and proceed with painting the rest.









Have fun,

Jerry

Hello guys!
For some time I was involved and I could not offer you any development on my project. I see that things are developing with you.
The situation with me is the following:
The tractor is almost complete and requires some more work. The cannon is ready, it remains to be packed together.
Here are some photos:









For now, goodbye, success in modeling and I'll see you soon!

John, your build looks great. The resin wheels definitely bring it up a notch or two. Crew figures look good in the hatches. I like the idea of a digital snow camouflage.....cool. Happy modeling.

Construction done! Now on to some finer details and then PAINT!!
I was not going to put a crew in, but changed my mind when I found picturers of Marines in Norway with the white Digital Uniforms. Had some CMK figures that fit the bill.

Ernest, thank you for the nice comment on my build. WOW! You did a stellar job detailing that engine. The wiring adds a lot of "Fidelity of Detail". Happy modeling. Bill

Chuck, your "Big Turret" Kv is shaping up nicely. I've always liked this version of the Kv....it's like a tracked pillbox. Glad you got some extra bench time in this weekend. Happy modeling my friend.
Bill

PS: Thanks Chuck for the compliment on my project. You know me, I love to "Frankenstein" those figures together. Hahaha!

Now with some extra time this weekend, I stated work on the turret. No issues here with construction, though I had to remove some molded in location marks on the turret sides for optional parts that are not called out for this particular version. Now I need to decide if I want to use the turret grab handles provided in the kit or scratchbuild my own with brass rod.



I left the rear turret hatch door unglued as I may have it propped open a bit when I place it on the diorama base.



Cheers!

Here's my latest work on the KV-II upper hull. Needed a bit of filling (not much) and had to use some clamps to keep the plates tight together.




I was able to get a lot of hull and turret construction done this weekend. Just taking my time and rolling along with this one as I am thinking about what I want the base and groundwork to look like.

Cheers!

William, very nice work on the Marder, the interior weathering looks very good.

Here are a few shots of the P&W R1830 Engine for the Wildcat. I drilled out cylinder heads and added a spark plug made from wire sheathing, the wiring harness and added copper wire to simulate the ignition lines.

Parts, a lot for a kit engine, ready for priming.

Update on my Marder I.

The Pak 40 is installed into the fighting compartment. No issues here.

Started work on some crew figures. Two figures came with the kit. The third I cobbled together from my spares bin. All figures required some conversion to attain the poses I wanted. Also shown are the few remaining kit parts to be attached.

Painting the camouflage pattern is up next. Thanks for viewing. Happy modeling everyone. Bill

Angel, very nice KS-19!
Anthony, that should be a neat project for your build. I have some photos of some knocked out armor that I took in Iraq and Afghanistan that look a lot like the picture you posted.

Looking at all the nice armor and gun builds make me want to dig out one of my Dragon kits and get to work. I just might do that after I finish the F4F-4.

Here are some photos of the AM cockpit that I got for the kit. Like most AM cockpit sets it looks like it will a bit fiddly to install when the time comes.

David,

Nice progress. That is going to be on large model by the looks of the frame assembly.
