Put a few hours in on the bergepanzer IV. Not too exciting yet, just a lower hull. I also completed all the road wheels idlers, drive sprockets, and have the magic tracks cleaned up ready to begin assembly soon. My first Panzer IV and second Dragon kit, sure are a lot of little pieces but I love the detail. Some nice builds here. Keep up the good work. Here are the glamour shots.

Shaping up nicely, Bryan. Beware the Dragon kits: the instructions will get you every time.

Nice beginning Bryan.

"Glamour shots" ?? Maybe you are talking about your hands ?

Hmmm …. no dried paint under the fingernails and no nicked skin from the Hobby Blade. Bryan, you are just not trying hard enough!

Nice start. Just watch the placement of the idler arm. Dragon IV's have nothing to stop you going too far forward or backward when fitting it.

I was actually “at work” when I took thoes pics. Picked up an extra night shift at a small local rural hospital. I get my own office and just have to answer my pager. Got to step 8 in the instructions and got paid over time to do it! Took that pic at about 4am. Earned my money later that morning.

Thanks. It is definitely a career that can go from 0 to 100 in a hurry. If you ride motorcycles, helmets DO make a difference.

I ride a bicycle, and yes, they DO make a BIG difference on them too. Do you have idiots riding motorcycles in 'Flip Flops' or with no protective clothing on over there? Seen that a couple of times over here. The gene pool can do without them.... but you guys end up with the mess to put together.

Yes we do and no helmets. At least one day a week here, there is a motorcycle crash and 99% of the time the rider does not survive.

I am in a state that does not require helmets, many people choose to not wear them. I guess they like the wind in their hair or something. Summer is coming soon. We call it “motor cycle season”. We get a lot of motor cycle vs deer collisions as the deer population is very dense. Unfortunately hitting a deer at 60-70 mph still usually results in a dead rider.
I’m afraid I have pulled the thread off topic, sorry about that.

Ok guys I'm done and dropped out. Due to the loss of my start up pics being lost (one too many phone throws ) and my upcoming separation after 21 years my heart is just not in it. I need a r and r, retreat and reorginisation. It was a challange with the old m-29 and had a good run for the money but. Life takes precedent and things need to be done. Thanks to all who helped stear me onwards with the beast but she is being added to the would of, could of, should of cabinet Carry on gentilmen.

Sorry to hear that Bob. I hope things get better for you.

I went through the big D after 16 years with my first wife, so I know what you are going through. All I'll say is hang in there, time does heal all wounds.

I've been there 10 years ago, Bob.

Live your pain now, but don't look back in anger-the Sun will shine again!

Howdy Y'all
Bob-Hang in there and keep the faith.

I had a few weeks of writer's/modeler's block. I did some rattle can priming and painting today. I got stuck when I got to the cab. I really want to put an African-American driver from the Red Ball Express in my build. I also decided to do a little work on the wheels.

The joint at the driver's shoulder didn't disappear when I used an acrylic filler. I went ahead and primed him and gave him a coat of my favorite base coat for American and Russian soldiers-Tester's Light Earth. Straight out of the rattle can.

That's all for now folks.
Take care,
Don "Lakota"

Hi all,

I thought i will show a Humvee loaded with supplies for logistics to support the ground troops on the battle field.

This tamiya kit is very pleasant and relaxing to build. the jerry cans and the ammo boxes are from the dragon abrams kits, as for the stowage bags, they are from the trumpeter stryker kit. i may not use the stowage bags for this though, i think it looks too much.

Gets the message across Cam

In future, use the last button in the black strip under the text panel. the one that says [ img ]. That will bring up a code line and just copy your URL over the bit that says "h t t p ://put.url.here/image.file" (have to show it with blank spaces here so you can se the text).

Then then add the pic format at the end of the url address e.g .jpg, .bmp or .gif, etc. as when you copy the url in Imgur it does not add the pic type reference to the end of the string for you; you need to add it in yourself.

In your case it would look like (without the spaces)
