I wonder if MLRS would be acceptable?

Would a missile launched anti air kit qualify for this campaign? It is technically classified as air defense artillery after all or would this be too far from the spirit of the campaign to qualify?

That's a fine-looking piece of artillery, Bryan...

Ok here are some updated pics. The instructions did not say where to put the decals. Did 2 filter washes with yellow ochre over the lightened base coat. Will do pin wash soon.

Ended up mixing a little white with my dunklegelb blend and shooting another coat. Much happier with the results. Will post a pic after I complete a few more steps.

Looking good, Bryan!
You can always lighten it with some ochre or white oils.

Bryan, might be a bit dark, but I am sure it is realistic. The whole academic discussion on shades of paint is superseded by reality, weathering, wartime conditions etc.

I say keep it as it is. It will look great when finished.

Update.
I got the base coat of dunkelgelb down. I used a mix of 50% Tamiya XF60 Dunklegelb and XF57 Buff over NATO black. I'm not sure if I like the result but I think it will improve with filters/washes. The periscope/ optics were painted seperately and are not attached yep. Well, let me know what you think. Thanks.

Angel,
You are right. I kept double checking the instructions to make sure I wasn't missing something. The wheel connection seems very poor. Besides that a decent kit. I bought it in a kit that came with a 251 ausf C to tow it.

Nice work Bryan!

I've built this kit recently-it is a small gem,except for the tiny moon-shaped conection points for the wheels.I had to drill the shafts, insert some copper wire and CA the wheels to get rid of wobbling.
Looking forward to the next step,

Hi everyone,
I wanted to get a quick update in. I have finished assembly of my AFV Club leFH18/40. I will begin painting soon. I need to build a new paint station and buy a new compressor so hopefully in the next couple weeks I can wrap everything up. Now I just need a new half track campaign to motivate me to build the half track that will be towing this gun!

The whole Photobucket kerfuffle has left me out in the cold so I'm trying imgur. Using the Eduard PE on this kit, the main gun, so far, hasn't really improved it so much IMHO, and I might not use the set if I were starting again. Part of that is that I don't see the dark color of the PE so well, and part is that I'm not so happy with the details. That said, I have a couple of images of the trailer fenders, one before and one after the initial shaving and surgery called for in the Eduard instructions. It gives an idea of what has to be done and the hope I have for the fenders.

And it looks like a successful divorce from photobucket.

Here is some of the progress I have made so far on the German 35.5cm Super Heavy Howitzer by Soar Art.

I didn't notice any parts missing, Shawn, , and your close-ups show some fantastic detailed wear and tear! Excellent work!

I finished up the Krupp 12.8 CM PAK 44 over the weekend. I wanted to make it look like it had seen some heavy action (to match the number of kill rings on the barrel)

Overall this was a fun build, and a first artillery piece for me. If anyone recalls, I had a mishap a while back when I dropped the finished model on the concrete floor prior to priming it. I was able to repair most of the damages but there are some details that were completely obliterated.

feedback is welcome

I decided to withdraw my sFH18 from Artillery campaign and will build an 1:48 Soviet 37 mm AA Gun instead.
The reason for this: my sFH 18 is to be towed by a Sd.Kfz 6/1- as it was used in Royal Bulgarian Army-and this pair fits better into another running campaign-Truck and Trailers.
The rules for Artillery Campaign explicitly state build for this campaign only so my change of subject is to follow them.
I will post starting picture of UM's 1:48 37 mm AAG kit soon.

Looks good, Robert Jan. There are some really nice details in this kit. Be careful they do not break of in the bath before basecoat.

None of the resin issues are visible to me on the finished kit. Looks to be a great model with some paint on it. Looking forward to see more.

Hi all.
Some little details to add, but the piece is near to a bath and ready for base coat.
























Waiting for slightly improvement on the weather conditions in Thailand. The humidity now is a problem to give it a first coat of primer. We'll see.
More projects on the table waiting...

Kind regards,

Robert Jan

Very nice, and very fast, Angel!


Thanks Clayton!
Still the piece needs weathering and for me that's the slow part...
