I add my 48-scale Tamiya T-34/76 m.1941. May be in winter camo, but I have not decided it yet.

I can finally present the assembled model. I took so long because of the tracks. They were a nightmare to assemble....at least for me.

Hi Charly,
I´m happy that you like it. Have fun with your Dragon T-34. I really liked the detail and fit on my Braille one.

Hi Chris,
thanks for your feedback and for tuning into my build log.

Hi Jeff,
at first I did not grasp where you got the idea that the build was done in 2002. Now I understand: The placard "gave me away". Only - that "painted by Alexandra Mir" does not refer to the model but to the real tank. The model was started, built and painted by myself - in 2013! At www.aleksandramir.info you can check out her artwork. Click 2002 and you´ll find the Pink Tank-Project.
Qualified?

Hey guys, here are some WIP pictures and a few of my finished up Tamiya JS-2 in 1/35 scale. I really couldn't think of a better candidate in my stash for this campaign. I did not do any of the photo etch parts or the metal barrel.

If someone could post my finished photo's in the gallery that would be AWESOME since I don't have any space left, and can't find a way to delete old photo's.











































Thanks for looking and thanks for letting take part in this group build!

Didn't work on this one for awhile, anyway got some bench time



Wheels are set.

Will start on the hull



I might get a 122mm metal gun barrel I still need to order one so this one is going to be a slow build.

Forgot to write about the color that it is Russian green. Sorry too much alcohol these days.

@Chris : The colour is standard middle green with areas highlighted with yellow and some shades done with diluted black.

Hi, Charlie and Chris thanks a lot for the kind words. The green is from White Ensign and has two more shades from mixing it with dunkelgelb and light grey. Too many nice builds here but it is too hard to write more from my phone,I 'll do that as soon as I get back home.

I don't think a project finished in 2002 can qualify Michael.

Michael, great looking piece, esp like the groundwork and the detail you put into the braile scale t-34/85, the build log is excellent.


John, loved the muddy look of the BT-5, what green(s) did you use for tank color?

Nasby, also loved the weathered look on your BT, also can you share the colors used for your tank color?

Hey Greg, Everybody,
John, Your BT looks great!
Michael, Really neat subject.

I'm in with Dragons' T34/76 '41. Going for another OOB experience since the detailing is great (at least for me).

Thanks,
Charlie

Hi, I started a T-34/85 with a little diorama in November. A detailed build thread can be found here:

http://armorama.com/modules.php?op=modload&name=SquawkBox&file=index&req=viewtopic&topic_id=214510&page=1

Although not in Stalins service anymore when placed on a London real estate the tank very likely participated in the crushing of the Hungarian uprising in `56. Whether it was put in service during Stalins reign or afterwards, I do not know. So just let me know, whether this build still qualifies for the campaign.

It would be lovely to earn my first ribbon.

Here are some pics:












Happy modelling

Michael

I had a few days to finish the small BT. I decided for a simmilar muddy weathering as did John on his big BT. The decals from UM are a big dissapointment, they started to dissintegrate on contact with water and I was barely able to save them.

Season's Greetings to All!

My entry to this group build is a 1/76 JS-2 Model made by Fujimi:


I actually started with my build on 23-Dec but did not made my posting until today.

My progress to-date:


This build will be OOB but except for adding a plastic plate to cover the cavity of the Upper Hull.

Hi everyone, it's been a long time since i posted. Very little time available for modelling. I managed to get the Zvezda BT 5 built and the ASU 57 is getting there too. Lots of great builds here guys. Really cool work on all the models i saw. Here are some pics of the BT 5. I went for a rather muddy one. That has to do with the fact that, on most films someone can see showing BT series tanks, they usually go charging into swamps etc and that, kind of, stuck in my mind regarding them.

Finally got some time again on the bench to get through the first step of this JSU-152. Tried my hand at doing some weld beads using the super thin cement and stretched sprue/plastic rod. Whew, some serious fumes working with the cement. May try milliput next time.



Also, got the voyager PE and resin barrel in the mail the other week.




Going to try some soldering for the fenders and see how that works out, any tips welcome.
Looking fwd to moving into the meat of the kit now.

Well I am a bit late to the party, but hopefully I'll still be able to complete it by the deadline.

Took the pic a while back, have made a bit of progress (mainly just removing/cleaning up bits) but I've got no pics of that yet, not much time for modelling this time of year...

Anyway!

I'm entering with Dragon's T-34/76 Hexagonal Turret (6424).

Start pic:



I'm enjoying seeing all the other builds take shape, all those KVs are getting me excited for the upcoming KV campaign!


Happy holidays folks!

Howdy!

I'd like to join the campaign with my HobbyBoss T-26.
Here is the starting pic - shot a few days ago.
