Thanks, John.

I have several more pieces to build if you're up for 2018.

I always enjoy anything mounted on that big MAZ 8x8 chassis!
(I've built four of them so far and contemplating a fifth one!)

Also the Russian PLZ, self-propelled gun is very impressive.



Thank you, Michael (165th), Ken (69mudbone), Clayton (FromEllijay) and all participants watching. Great campaign!

As the gun is deployed, you could just have left them off - they'd be out in the field. Nice to see another sFH, we almost have enough for a whole battery.



I had already attached them, and sprayed my camo. Removing them to avoid painting the red/white would have been more work than being extra nimble and steady.

A final pic, and link to more pics:

I had to hand paint the sighting poles in-situ as I forgot to do it while they were off the kit. I had already done the camo and decals before I realized it. I am now ready for a few rounds of playing "Operation" with my kids.

Due to the Photobucket Mishap of 2017, all my postings are dead, so I am posting highlights from start to finish as well as a gallery pic. I have left the piece relatively unweathered as I intend to build the crew set that goes along with this and make a base, but I am in the middle of creating my display area and the crew won't be ready for some time.

I think this makes four of these entered with one pull-out. The other two are in towed position as well, I believe.

Way to go Comrade.

Boy this campaign has certainly brought out the end of the race sprinters!

I have enjoyed this thread AND the campaign itself very much!

Hi all,

VERY impressive builds/dioramas here on display. If I had time, I'd compliment everybody individually.

Anyway, I finished my Meng PLZ05 (many thanks for the extra time, John, I needed it):











Congratulations to everyone who's finished and good luck to those working up to the deadline.

Very nice, especially the camo at this small scale. I have a problem with the "bulkiness" of some of the figures but all around it is a first rate job and the dio base really brings it all together. Aces! Kudos!
