Majid - Thanks a lot! Your truck and missile are coming along very nicely - the detailed engine looks great under the hood.

Joseph - Thanks! The HIMARS kit, as well as being of a cool subject, is reasonably well-detailed and goes together pretty well. The only thing I found fault with is the lack of an engine (just the bottom oil pan is provided). If I had had more time, I would have converted another engine to drop into place, but all I can do now is just look at Majid‘s build and feel the engine envy.

RE: an extension.

I don't need a whole month; a week would be plenty. But if others need it I'll use it.




I went ahead and extended it until November 30th;

Joseph: Congratulations on both your medals! Quite the pair of guns and nice work on both of them.



Zon, Thanks for the compliment! Just got a chance to see your aerosan. it looks great! Congratulations!

Joseph - Your S-51 turned out excellent, a good, clean build. The prizes it and your B-4 won were well-deserved.



Jbranca, thank you very much for your comment. I like how your HIMARS turned out. That looks like it is a great project. I might check out that kit!

Joseph - well done .i like your s-51 its beautiful.These are well deserved awards



Majid, thank you very much for chiming in. Your project is progressing well. I think this is the same stage where I left mine. Hopefully I get to continue working on mine.

Gentlemen,

I call my Trumpeter T72B mod1990 kit finished this morning. It was a strange build with some doubt in the middle of building work but after the final paint went on, I got new power to complete the works and I like what I see now.












Regards,

Tamás



Great pictures Tamás! I had to look closely because I thought they were pictures of the real thing. Your model looks that good!

Since your campaign leader is MIA, let me know if a significant number of people need an extension. Will one month do?

Hi guys,

Work has swallowed me up in the last several weeks, so I haven‘t had much time to do anything else, either modelling or posting here, but I did manage to get my HIMARS done a few days ago. But first:

David - Cool ISU-152! It really looks the part of a long-abandoned vehicle.

Joseph - Your S-51 turned out excellent, a good, clean build. The prizes it and your B-4 won were well-deserved.

Zon -You really nailed the winter finish on your Aerosan.

Tamas - I really like the finish on your T-72B - the restrained weathering works really well.

Majid - Great work on engine and interior detailing/painting/weathering on your SA-2 and ZiL-157 - I‘m looking forward to seeing it take shape.

ComradeMP - Good progress on your KV-3, especially with all those track links! The weld beads really add to it.

Shell - Love the camo on the Karl-Gerät, looking forward to further progress.

Here‘s my finished HIMARS:















Good luck to everyone racing towards the finish line!

Jerry

Are we still on track for the midnight 12:00 PM October 31 deadline? I have not updated in a while but I have just gloss-coated it in prep for decals and touch-ups, and then attaching the tracks. As I intend on building the ammo tender at some point I am holding off on much if any weathering to keep it fresh for a diorama involving the two vehicles. For now, it is going to be presented in 'Kubinka'-approved finish.

I didn't use the metal barrel as I wasn't satisfied with the join between gun barrel and sleeve--which is to say none as they appear to be one piece. Anyway, where she is:







My only concern is that Oct 31 is Halloween, and being a dad I would be the not-fun kind of monster if I didn't take my kids out, so that is going to push me tomorrow and that evening. But as long as it is built, painted, and decaled and represents the subject in its finished form I'm good, right?

David: Excellent work on the rust. It's like finding something in the forest after many years.




That's what I was aiming for as it's based on a YouTube video I watched some time ago.

Angel: Thank you for the kind words. You are too modest. Your workbench photos are quite good.

David: Excellent work on the rust. It's like finding something in the forest after many years.

Joseph: Congratulations on both your medals! Quite the pair of guns and nice work on both of them.

ComradeMP: Great Start and nice addition with the weld beads.

I am calling my Aerosan finished. I didn't go too heavy on the weathering, but wanted it to look a little used. I also tried to indicate a grease/oil leak from the propeller dripping onto the back. Interestingly, the fuselage and skis are made of wood, so i did some really light chipping, but it is hard to see. Overall I really enjoyed this little craft and am very happy with how it turned out.

Trumpeter 1/35th scale Aerosan RF-8/GAZ-98










Happy Modeling and thank you all for a great campaign!

Wow! Both of those look great, Joseph!

What shade of green is that you used?






Hi Richard,

Thanks very much. I used AK Interactive's 4BO Modulation set.

Hi Tamás,

Thank you very much! I am happy it turned out well even though I was rushing to finish it in time for the competition.

Hello everyone,
I'm calling my S-51 done! I limited the weathering to painting highlights and pin washes. My thinking was, this vehicle is not in the forefront and would not be crashing into buildings or vegetation. Because of this, there are no scratches, chipping or any visible damage. So, here's how it looks.











Here are some detail shots where the highlighting and effect of the pin washing can be observed.



And finally, I entered this at last Saturday's IPMS OrangeCon and it won 3rd place in the Self-Propelled Artillery category!


I also entered a companion build, the B-4 which also won 3rd place in the Towed Artillery category.


It was pretty neat to enter 2 models and both winning medals!

I will be uploading pictures to this campaign's gallery soon.

-Joseph

Tamas: thank you for the encouragement. My main goal now is to not mess it up! Also, some day I hope to get my picture taking up to Joseph's level.

Joseph: that has really turned out nice with such a superb paint job. I think I will have to give that vehicle a try sometime.

Happy Modeling,
zon



Thanks Zon, I like your aerosan. It's looking good. The color white is pretty challenging and you're doing a good job there.

The S-51 is one of those that you don't see often. I liked it for its obscurity.

David, your rusty weathering looks convincing. Keep it up!

Angel, thanks for your compliment on my modulation. Believe it or not, I'm still in the learning stages.

And it looks the part, David!

Excellent paint work!



just a quick up date, the weathering will begin shortly as i am now just waiting for the rust effects to dry and i have also sprayed a clear coat over it as well to seal it all in.
