Hi mates,
great builds so far, congrats to all of you
After a longer than planned break from my project I'm nearing the finish line

Had a few self-induced issues, but in the end I think I will be content with my model. It seems to me, I'm the only one who is building an aircraft, he?
Anyway here are two pictures:


Painted and waiting for the decals
It's still big, even in 1/144 scale...

Hi all.
I'm afraid I will not be able to finish this campaign, due to serious health problems. Hospitalization and some upcoming surgery the coming weeks, will hold me away from the workbench for the coming months.
Keep up the good work everybody.

Kind regards,

Robert Jan

Aloha All,

I've encountered a fit problem with my Aerosan.


Here is the fit at the bottom of the front without the top piece. Pretty good fit.


This is what happens to the sides at the bottom when I put the top piece on.


The top fits really good with the sides splayed out.

I've posted the fit question in the Constructive Feedback Forum but included the pictures here since I'm building this for the campaign.

Happy Modeling,
Zon

Tamas: super nice PE work.

I've decided to join in the fun with the only Trumpeter kit I have ready to build.

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







Happy Modeling,

Me too. I have never build modern tank so for me it looks complicated enough without trying to paint or wether it. Hats off Tamas.

Hi Tamas,

That‘s an excellent, clean build - the photoetch work is masterful.

Looking forward to seeing it painted!

Gentlemen,

I have just finished the building process, now start painting. It was very long story but I enjoyed it a much. It was also a god practice before the Meng T-90A kit.

I think the painting will start in September only.

T-72B_WIP_10

T-72B_WIP_12

Cheers,

Tamas

Hi Angel!

Awesome job on your KV - with the mud, streaking and missing fenders, it really looks the part of the old, battered war-horse. Your photography is effective here, too - the low-angle shots are especially dramatic. I would have a hard time giving this one up, for sure, but if it‘s going to your brother-in-law, at least you can visit it a lot.

But if some day I decide to scratchbuild the Soviet 57 mm. AA Gun S-60 (he served on one of these guns as a loader), I'll definitely keep it for my collection.



That would be very cool.

Your HIMARS is looking really good, Jerry!



Thank you!

I see, David!

Thanks Bogi!
I made a promise to myself to build the KV-1 for him and I'll hold it.
Besides- he'll be happy with the KV (he already has a T-34/76 and a T-14 Armata built by me).

Thanks Ken!
Missing fenders are the only way to build 2 KV kits with only 1 PE Fender set

Well done David!
Do you intend to add an engine?



I have managed to get a miniart t34 engine and transmission set as well as the t54 engine as well but I'm not sure if I will have time to complete them. it's a real shame there isn't an engine set for this kit as alot of the panels open up although the engine access door on the rear of the upper hull is molded on which is a shame.

Well Angel, if I am at your place I would apologize to him and offer some excuse... And keep model for myself.
Excellent build.

Your HIMARS is looking realy good, Jerry!

Tamas and Bogi- I'm still amazed by the quality of your builds, gentlemen!

Because of my BLG-60M-2 AVLB scratch-bash-conversion build for "Once More Unto the Breach" Campaign, I have been idling on my KV-1 build for almost 2 months.
Yet time is running out, so I did some final touches this evening and declare herewith my KV-1 finished:






This Saturday, it will go to my brother-in-law as a jubilee present for his 50th anniversary,

Tamás, nice progress on your T-72. I built the T-72B Mod.1985 (the one without any ERA) a couple of years ago, and boy, do I remember all those PE discs for the anti-radiation cladding. That’s some great PE work in general you‘re doing.

Bogi, you’ve really nailed the look of the 17cm artillery piece in your reference photos - brilliant!

As for me, I‘ve put the basecoat on my HIMARS, but it‘ll stay at this stage until September/October, once I’ve finished my build for the Stalingrad campaign. Detail painting is next, then I‘ll put it together and weather it, etc. In the second and third photos, I‘ve just loosely fit the sub-assemblies together without glue to give a general impression of what it‘ll look like:







Have fun,

Jerry
