Quoted Text

Buy a big box and put a present in it for her. When she has opened the box and taken the present, just tell her you will keep the box safe and fill it next year...…..




I'm sure that will work, mate

Not much time (and mojo) for styrene cutting last week, yet I managed to finish the rough construction of the other 2 bridge quarters:





Next week I'll start detailing the bridge, while simultaneously preparing some models for the comming Sofia Scale Model Show(Oct.12-Oct.13)

Thanks Richard!

Once all bridge quarters are done, I'll find a way around to show everything.

Probably something like:

I see your point, Peter!

But try to see my point too-
With total length (vehicle plus deployed bridge) of almost 1 m., I risk a big size scandal with my better half...

I only deploy the bridge, when she is having her beauty nap...and this evening I'm still waiting for it... and waiting... and waiting

Yeah, I've got to agree with Pete on this one. All that awesome detail is hidden unless you go poking around underneath.

They hide too much of the rest of the work Angel! They have to be shown deployed so we can enjoy it all....

Some progress on my project.
The scissor bridge consists of 4 almost identical-at least in basic dimensions-quarters.
With 284 mm length per bridge quarter, these are by far the biggest structures I've ever built sofar.

2 down, 2 more to go:




True styrene eaters...

Peter, Robert- thanks for your kind words, mates!

To be honest- my participation in this contest was "awarded" even before modelling judges arrived on the scene.
For- as planned- I went to Svishtov's Museum of Engineers Equipment and touched, smelled and crawled over & under the real Pontonwagen(Pf.11), preserved there


And took plenty of photos of some other quite interresting objects

Kind regards,

Fantastic work Angel. A labour of love, but it is just sensational.

Congrats on the gong too. Of course your entry was best in WW2, never any doubt on that.

Thanks Richard!

While preparing the BLG-60M-2 for a modelling contest participation(WIP section), I added some more tiny details, like:
Mudguards, spare tracks and second tow rope:


Hydraulic lines to the rotating cylinder and in the laying arm:



Manta Modelling Expo 2019 took place over last weekend in Veliko Tarnovo/Bulgaria with plenty of models in various categories and scales put on display.

Here is my BLG-60M-2 on the WIP Section table:


I also ran my other "Once More Unto the Breach" Campaign project-Henschel 33D1 with Pontonwagen(Pf.11)- in the contest:


It won the "Best Model in WWII-Allied Category" Award:


A fact, that makes me extremely happy and proud

That looks terrific, Angel. Truly excellent work. I can't wait to see the bridge section!

I'm hoping there's a vendor at my club's contest this weekend that has the new M60A2 AVLB! THAT will be going home with ME!!

Congratulations on crossing the finish line here, Richard!
"Dust Bunny" looks terrific!

I've added some details to my BLG-60M-2 like fenders, headlights with protection cages, parking lights with wiring, convoy light, some other tiny details and one of the towing ropes:





Intend to start building the scissor bridge in the last week of this month.

I am preparing the vehicle for a modelling contest participation (WIP section) next weekend, so stay tuned for more updates,

OK. I think I'm going to stop with this one before I F*** it up worse than I already have. This was my first time using pigments and I'm not all that pleased with it.

I'll shoot a couple pics tomorrow for the campaign gallery. I might do the Stryker Engineer Squad Vehicle next when I finish the SA-4.

I look forward to seeing what the rest of you can do.

Love the name too.

If I only I could get to Texas next weekend.

I couldn't even get to Armorfest in Cairns Queensland last week although a few of my club guys went and rode various tanks:
Sherman Firefly
Panzer IV Ausf G
M113 FSV
T55

Lucky them.....
