Thanks for the warm welcome all......

After a visit from on of our kids and his suggestions, I have restarted the engine and trans work. The tank will be shown with rear hatches open now (Per his suggestion )

I will try and take some in process pics tonight.

BTW. I see a lot of people starting their build posts with cell phone time date image - Is that part of the build etiquette?

Jeff D,
It looks like you're missing a back-slash on your second "img" tag. Nice kit choice. I've heard mixed things about the kit and am interested to see it build up.

I'd love to see Hobby Boss do a T28.

Well adding 2 images at once did not seem to work quite right.

I am new to the Forums. I thought this might help me be more diligent on building my models.
This is the first Campaign I joined.
Here is what I just started on March 1st. ICM T-28
Now if I can figure out how to add images..........

Still working on the hull details.
Just a few small parts before starting working on the tracks.

Here are my in-process photos of the JS-2 by Tamiya.
I chose the link and length tracks. As you can see the knockout pin holes took a lot of time and patience to fill them in.

Hi everyone.

Here is my contribution to the campaign; Tamiya's IS-2 model 1944 ChKZ.

I will use some extras, RB Model's metal barrel, Aber PE grill set, and Armo's "IS Family" decals.

Lots of nice builds happening here. Just thought I'd post a pic of the progress I've made on my kit. I made new fenders from the aluminum around wine bottle corks, then "distressed" them. I just have to finish up the turret, then I can start painting.

Great progress guys!

Burak, will your T-34 be a captured example, judging by the grey camo or some russian variant?

Here is my progress, still have to weather upper hull, finish commanders figure and ad some base, but the tank itself is pretty close to being finished.







Cheers,
Greg

Progress... I think half of the tank finished. After tracks and uppper accessories, I will paint in gray camo.

OK guys, calling this one done. Someday I'll work up the courage to do a whitewash on one of these, but for the moment my wife's supply of hair spray is safe!

Thx Guy!

I'm almost done with the basecoat, pitty that the Vallejo green that I used does not stick too well to Tamiya primer, oh well, after some shading I'll have to 'dip' it in 'Future'...

Roman, that was quick! I dont build and paint 1:72 quick assembly kits at that rate, let alone 1:35.

Got to love those small Miniart tanks and yours came out really nice. will it have any markings?

Cheers,
Greg

Finally with so many Campaigns, I managed to get some work on the ISU-122

Details added to the top hull, I'll work on this kit in 3 sub-assemblies:
lower hull & running gear (needs wheel caps & tracks)
top hull ( still needs other small details and hatches )
gun & mantlet ( not started yet )

Good job with the gimp Jens, I like it!

Last update of my Stalin before painting stage:
I've added two last details: unditching log racks and front fender mounting strips, which are actually drilled , which may not be visible in the pictures. during the last photoshoot I also tightened both tracks by one link, i think this way the tank looks tidier. Backdrop for the photos changed to black this time, which I think works quite well.

Best regards,
Greg

Since my model is done I played around a little bit with GIMP. I hope you dont mind me posting the result.




looks great! It could be the Boxtop art for the kit!
