Up through step 5 on the THAAD. Rear axle did not fit - had to trim pins and fill with putty to get it to fit correctly

Nigel, your self propelled howitzer looks great. Sorry to hear of the storage basket issues. I'm sympathetic to your travail, my Marder is giving me a hard time. No worries, that's why they call it modeling and not assembling. Bill

Progression my kit after a few days. The storage basket at The top of the turret was a nightmare. Really dislike working with mesh and the plastic parts themselves did not line up good. Probably the most frustrating part of this kit. Still good overall. Have also primed the kit to check for seam lines. Here it is beside a Chieftain I am building for the British brigade.

Angel, Mark and Bill, thanks a lot! Especially on the turret, which I'm working on now, attaching the array of reactive armor at the correct angle is...interesting, shall we say. I'll post some pics soon.

Bruce, welcome aboard (if an armor modeler is allowed to use a naval expression ) - what kit are you planning to build?

Ernest, welcome also - good to see aircraft in the campaign. Good work on the cockpit so far.

Angel, your KS-19 looks awesome! Are you going to weather it further? I was thinking of building it for the upcoming anti-aircraft campaign, but another kit from the stash is calling - your build has inspired me to do it as well if there's still time by November, though.

Anthony, good to see your scale represented like Bill said. I'm looking forward to your KO effects.

And Bill, the great work continues on your Marder - the interior details and weathering look excellent. Sorry to hear that the build is such a bear but it's very cool you're still enjoying it.

Have fun everybody,

Jerry

Update on my Marder I.

Fighting compartment assembled with fenders attached. This was a chore. The instructions had the fenders reversed, and they required modification to fit to the hull.

Assembly problems continue. The front hull piece needed copious amounts of putty to mate up with the lower hull.
Even with the mounting issues, I'm still enjoying this build.

Ernest, it's wonderful to see a plane entered into the campaign.
Angel, you did a fantastic job on the big artillery piece.
Weathering looks good.
Anthony, nice to see a braille scale model in the campaign. Good luck achieving the KO'd effect.
David, that's a cool looking model.

That gun is exceptional. You know, I may have to buy that kit based on your excellent build. Thanks for posting.

cheers

Bill-excellent painting and weathering on the interior(wish I could manage that as good as you,sir!)
Nigel- nice progress.Regarding guns, be adviced that building guns leads to addiction-you can never stop, once you build one
Chuck-following with interest,I have the same kit in my stash.
Jerry-I follow your T-64 build with joy and awe(I'm frightened by the count of all these reactive armor blocks in kits of Soviet armor).Try also the gun I am building- it will not disappoint you.
Ernest-your big scale Wildcat is more than welcomed to the Campaign.
Matthew-looking forward to your Challenger 2.

My KS-19 now has basecoat and some initial light weathering(3 different filters):



I found also a display box to accomodate the couple

I have a Challenger 2 to enter, if I can manage. I will be adding some am parts. I have assembled a few etch bits, if that's acceptable.?

Just finished the PTO Campaign on Friday. Here is my entry for this campaign and a photo of the base work I did on the Grand Phoenix cockpit yesterday and today.

Bill,

Excellent weathering on the subassemblies. Gotta love that grime.

Cheers!

Update on my Marder I.

Working on the fighting compartment. The kit has a good amount of detailing in here.

Paintwork on the fighting compartment is complete. All the components are ready for assembly. Having a blast on this build.
Bill

Full Disclosure: The parts required a lot of test fitting and modification. The kit's instructions are ambiguous in many areas.
Aaarg!

Jerry, the molding quality on your kit is BEAUTIFUL!
Angel, the tractor and artillery piece look fantastic together. A real show stopper!
Nigel, good work on your self propelled howitzer....it's going together quickly.
Keep up the awesome work fellow modelers.

Thanks for all the encouragement fellas.
@Chuck – Nice progress on the KV-2. Have the same kit in my stash… come to think of it – I’ve been meaning to build the thing! Might do so once I finish this AS-90

@jbranca – looking forward to your build of the T-64. I have the T-64B and T-80BV kit and I’m still not that great with photo-etch.
@Angel – Nice work on the towed gun! I’ve never built one of those things… looking at yours is making me reconsider.
Here’s my progress last night with the AS-90. Put on the tracks and wheels for dry-fitting along with the gun. This thing is probably the biggest kit I’ve handled so far (mostly because I’ve do WW2 stuff and the occasional Leopard and Abram). I’m hoping that I don’t need to clean up the gun barrel too much. Will be priming her soon – hope I don’t uncover any nasty surprises!

Kalin, great start on your Sd.Kfz. 8.

Angel, fantastic ATS-712, it's going to look great weathered and paired up with the the KS-19M2. As a matter of fact, I have that AA gun in the stash and will be following your build with intense interest. It sure is impressively huge.

Bill, nice progress on your Marder.

David, looking forward to your THAAD build.

Nigel, cool AS-90 build. Too bad you had to fight with it but everything looks well aligned now.

Chuck, good work on the KV-II.

My T-64BV is going together well with no fit issues. I've finished the hull except for the tracks and the side skirts, which I'll do after I've painted the running gear. Unlike Bill, I'm not really a fan of painting while I'm building but since many if not most Cold War/Modern MTBs have side skirts, there's not really any way around it. Here's where it stands as of today:







Have fun everyone,

Jerry

Angel, the accompanying artillery piece is freaking huge.
Nigel, cool looking self propelled howitzer.
Chuck, hey, it wouldn't be a model build if everything fit perfectly. Hahaha. Good luck my friend.
Bill
