Excellent Jesper. The weathering on the paint work is fantastic.

Here is my finished build. Quite a nice beast.

I will try to take better pictures when the weather clears and I can take pictures outside.

Thanks Peter and Angel.

Finished painting driver. Not perfect, but fun to paint anyway.



There are couple of shiny spots that will be fixed with matt varnish.

Replaced the broken Bracing at the bottom of the front and rear of the box.

Have primed and pre-shaded since these pics.




Removed the mud flaps since then too, as I could find no pics with them this long. Several pics show none, so I have chosen to go that way.


I don't suppose anyone has a pic of the connector for the wiring to fit the socket on the vehicle??

You're welcome, Pasi!
Both the quality of the kit and your build are really top notch!

Watching your Sank(r)a built was my pleasure too,Kalin!

Wish you a good start,Lap Man!
Sure this will be another stunner of yours!

Gentlemen,
We have 23 days left.
Should anyone need bit more time to finish a participating build, please let me know so I can apply for dead line extension.

I also remind those of you, who already have finished builds but did not upload at least 2 pictures to Campaigns gallery, to do so(R&R say: no pictures in gallery-no ribbon)!

Gallery is here:
https://gallery3.kitmaker.net/showgallery.php/cat/31419

Good luck!

Beautifully done Kalin. I love it. Thanks for joining in.

Pasi, a very interesting choice. It is really coming to life now.

Hello everyone!
I managed to finish building my project in the camp. I think I've done it. Here are photos:
1. Before weathering







2. After weathering. I've used Tamiya weathering master (Set A and B) and oil paint from "502 Abteilung"








It was a pleasure to participate.
The ambulance will become part of this:



Good luck to all!

Bace, I'm looking forward to starting work on the Steyr 640.

I hear you, gentlemen!

That's why they say resin is not for the faint-hearted...

I've built several kits since my first resin build (PlusModel's Pavesi/Resin I Campaign), but honestly-I have yet to find another resin kit of such quality (maybe the Steyr 640, I received last week?!?).

Splendid job on the Sd.Ah.,Peter!

Peter, I see that not only do I have a resin problem. But it looks wonderful. After painting it will be even better. Good luck.

So, as per previous post, I have a back up to try and meet deadline - the Plus Model 1/35th Sd Anh 32 Ammo trailer. The moulding on the lower tool box brackets was damaged but I thought I could get away with it, but looking at the pics, they clearly need to be replaced.

Rather than have to make up ammo to fit the very small holes in the brass etch, I decided to button her up



Replaced the Notek convoy light with a better detailed Dragon one. I also replaced the Shovel with one from the spares box and used an Aber clamp and some etch fret section for the clamp and shovel holder.

Well time is running out on me. This Legend Kit is soooo difficult to build. I spend more time researching where parts go, than actually fitting them to the model. There were a lot of warped parts, airholes, etc. Instructions show the completed sub assembly with all 15 parts in place... and the numbers quoted do not match part numbers.....

This is where I am up to:



The side plate armour is hung from a leaf spring arrangement, the Legend are warped, twisted and so fragile that I couldn't use them. I have had to scratch build them. Legend do not give you the lower section behind the plates, which will be very visible on the thin ones, so I have to make them up too. I also had to make several hangers (J shaped parts that fit on the outside of the front armoured section) as these were broken in the kit, as was the piece that goes in front of the Gun mount. This is where I am with these:

Thank you for the kind words. The tank indeed looks unconventional; one of the reasons I wanted to build it. (The other is that it is the only Hungarian-made tank.)

I will try to upload them individually, thank you.
