Oh shoot I did overlook a couple vision blocks. I will get them finished up tonight. I'm still calling her done
Olivier can you remind me what company built your EBR kit and where you ordered your am wheels? I really like that thing, very unique design.
I am a little surprised we don't have more kits finished. I hope a couple appear tonight and tomorrow.

Bryan,
the donor kit is Hobby Boss EBR-11 (wrong official denomination but it's the kit's one). To backdate it, I used the Azimut conversion EBR FL11/75 mod51 (only a couple of parts are really useful).
If you build the kit as the late version with the 90mm, take note that the mistakes I mention in my article are still to be fixed.

I purchased the AM wheels at LuckyModel.

Hi Groupe,

Some good looking models here. I am sorry I wasn't able to get involved. Had some big ideas.

Thanks for making these models.

The campaign leader is Cantstopbuyingkits. He posted today on a different forum so he is still around. If the ribbons are not awarded in the next couple days we can message him.

Yes I am still here around Bryan, judging by the rules of this campaign all of you should receive your campaign ribbon by the end of this week , as long as you have made sure to upload your pictures of the finished build up to the campaign's gallery

Pawel nice weathering

In the weekend the painting went a bit wrong on my F1c,..just way off was the color


So i tried to correct it with a layer of grey and i think it looks way better,.. but it still needs a bit more,.. bud thats for a later day.

I just finished the decals on the model right before the end of the day/campaign. Original decals are by the way thick and very easy to brake,.. anyway the result





Tommorow i will add a better picture to the gallery,..

Thanks

As I said earlier, the general campaign rules require picture evidence that the build has been finished and no-one will receive a ribbon unless they have done so.

All six of us have photo evidence in the campaign's gallery. It is just the six of us that finished.

Can someone explain to me how this campaign works. Several months back I registered and still appear as the last member in the campaign list. I was working on my VPS and decided to use it for the campaign. Olivier said that it was "probably late" to enter, but I did finnish the model and posted pictures of both, the build and the finnished model. Am I still in? If not, how come?

Marcos,
The campaign ended December 6th as it stated when you enlisted. The campaign leader did not issue an extension nor was one requested. I also do not see a picture from you in the kitmaker gallery. Try sending, Cantstopbuyingkits, a message to see if he can help you out. Hopefully he can. Good luck
Bryan

Thank you Bryan. Forgive my ignorance. I assumed that posting pictures on the campaign thread of the finnished model was all I had to do. I am not even sure how to upload pictures to the kitmaker gallery. My mistake. No biggie, it is just a ribbon. Thanks anyway!

Don't give up quite yet Zorrolobo! IF I UNDERSTAND IT CORRECTLY, you fulfilled all the requirements of the campaign EXCEPT posting to the official gallery. This is a common oversight and one of the duties of campaign leaders to to ride herd on participants to make sure all who participate make the required posts where they need to be made. Cantstopbuying kits may well be able to guide you in the correct direction so you get your ribbon and he gets another completed model in the gallery.

I can't speak for him and the words above are only my thoughts. Give him a ping and see what he has to say. You have nothing to loose outside of your time & keystrokes.

Thank you guys. I figured how to upload the pictures, and did so. I also sent a message to Timothy. We'll see how that goes. Thanks.
