Thanks John - how or where do I see my Ribbon?



Ian, unless my eyes are failing me I don't think I see your finished build in the campaign gallery:

John would refer to the uploaded pics as basis for giving out the ribbons.

Cheers,

Tat

Well thanks to a 7 day work week and some other last minute stuff coming up it looks like I wont make it 100% of the way!

Finished my Airbrushing but havent done my detail work yet. Happy with how it came along, being my first kit and my first ever go at Airbrushing.



Hard to get a good photo without proper lighting and only using my phone.

The highlights look a lot lighter than they do in person, im confident with the details picked out, a wash, and details, it will be broken up and become more dimensional and tie in better.

Thanks for the interest so far.

Finished up. Made a log out of evergreen and used some sewing thread as rope. I was able to use some evergreen to add some stuff the Dshk to improve it's look a bit.





Second campaign this year, two or so more to finish off. Back to the build desk!

Sal, Really nice work on the rail car. Are the wood panels painted or actual wood? If that is painted, that is really nice work? Which if any paint set did you use?


Thanks Brenton
No they are plastic coated with cheap craft store acrylic brown paint. I then use Model Masters Brown Oak Detail Wash and over that some random brush strokes with watered down black acrylic paint



OK, Thanks for the information. Once again, nice work.

Hi all, the Back to Basics campaign has been extended to 10 Oct 16 to allow a few people to finish. I will stipulate that this will be the only extension and would strongly advise against anyone joining now.

Thanks for the education. I had not realized there was a 35(T) as well as the 38(T) that I was already familiar with. The road wheel arrangement really changes the look.



You're welcome. I'm still learning a lot myself. Plenty of interesting and lesser known vehicles out there, I'm constantly discovering new ones. I play a fair bit of World of Tanks on XBox so I often see ones I like the look of and plan on picking up their kits in the future.

Mitchell - Your kit came out well, great first effort. Is it an Italian tank?



Thanks mate, its a Panzer 35t,http://www.achtungpanzer.com/panzerkampfwagen-35t.htm
it is built and equipped in the Operation Barbarossa loadout and will have paint and decals appropriate once I get my airbrush.

Paul,
Thank you for the compliment. The Tamiya 38t was an enjoyable build, like most Tamiya kits. The part fit was excellent and the instructions were very clear. I hadn't done a panzer gray scheme in many years, so I wanted to try one with 'modern' techniques. I am pleased with it. The 1/48 kits are fun to build and look pretty good just OOB.

Thanks,
Stephen
