Good day to all of you! After a 10 year break, with two small intermissions, I returned to model building a few weeks ago and rejoined Armorama yesterday. Fortunately, all those years ago, I carefully sorted and stored everything so numerous old projects lie patiently awaiting my attention.

I stumbled upon the Campaigns area and decided this campaign may serve as motivation to complete an old project. If the campaign owner permits, I would like to sign on with the project shown below, an M3A1 Stuart.

Back in 2009, I started this project by cleaning up some of the suspension parts. In 2018, during a brief return to model building, I assembled the running gear, assembled the tracks, and attempted to fix a problem with the sponsons. Two weeks ago, I pulled out the kit yet again and finally made some significant headway.



Thank you for your consideration!

Welcome to the campaign! And congratulations on Neo for finally finishing his sniper diorama! Don't forget to upload an image of finished builds into the campaign gallery!

We're almost to the end of October, so only 2 more months to finish your builds and for me to put up a ribbon!

Great! Congrats!
Maybe you can dust the boots of your figures a bit, to blend them more with the base?

I thought they were an easy build (until I started building them).



So true! That sums up all my campaign attempts this year.

This is the place for those unfinished campaign builds! You're in good company!

I just joined w/ another of my many unfinished efforts.

I was in the Sniper Campaign but they kicked me out (because it was over weeks ago)...


This was / is going top be a Dio of a Soviet Sniper Team, Ca. Afghanistan 1980's.
Thees are the old ICM Soviet Troops offering. I thought they were an easy build (until I started building them).


Figures partiality done:






Idea for Dio:


Really pushing on this now. Think I have an excellent chance (50/50) of finishing !

Looking very nice Freddy. Camo masking is very well done.

Quick tip. When posting pics from the url address in the gallery, only use the part that starts with the [ I m g] tag through to the [ / I m g] end tag and remove the bit that says'/ thumbs' (the spaces I have added in this example is so you can see the text). That way a full size pic will appear in the thread.

e.g remove the first bits from [ u r l ] in your post:

[u r l =https://gallery3.kitmaker.net/showphoto.php/photo/473371]

leave this bit but take out the / thumbs
[ I m g ] h t t p s://gallery3.kitmaker.net/data/31833/thumbs/IMG_5973.jpg [/i m g]

and remove the last bits
[ / u r l ][/quote]

and you get this:
