BrassNautilus wasn't enlisted as he was just posting pictures of some KVs he had made at an earlier time. I have closed the campaign back up to allow awarding of ribbons once more.

Well, it seems I typed without my glasses again. I misspelled me (my) on my last reply, but any way thanks for my pretty ribbon Warren.

Warren, just wanted to say thanks for the great campaign and for the cool looking ribbon I learned a lot about the KV series of tanks and this was the 1st kit that I use AM PE on so I learned a lot about modeling There were also some great looking builds here by everyone and it would be great to see a Feature made from this campaign

I tried to post the images on the gallery before I posted them here, but somehow they're not there... bummer.
Should I try to repost them ?

If anyone finished their kit but did not upload a picture to the Gallery, or I plain missed them, please tell me and I will go and award you a spangly ribbon.

@ vonHengest, how are you progressing?

Cheers and congrats to all who participated even if you didn't finish.

Congratulations Bob and Kimmo. The KV-2 is looking quite good; and top heavy. Kimmo's KV has just gone through the Soviet Peoples Volunteer Workers Field Tank Wash (love to see that written out in Cyrilic).

Cheers,
Jan

@ Bob, you did it!

@ Kimmo, that sag looks fine.. and you could say it has just rained and the tank is still wet from the downpour....

Well done to both of you!

This cant be called finished..? Heres where it stands right now. Flat cote on lower hull and roadwheels. Turret and upper hull still gloss cote. Friul tracks have gone thru DIY "Blacken-it" treatment and for some reason they got longer than before treatment. So I may have to remove one piece to get a proper amount of slag, now it looks too deep?

Do I dare to ask, how long would that extra-extension be?? Its sure, that my KV wont be finished today... Im facing three hours on soccerfield today partisipating on trainings and games, so all that time is away from modelingtime. My KV is about 95 % ready and I just noticed, that in this hurry trying to finish in time, I have forgot to paint periscope lenses to black..
Ill try to upload pics tonight, if I have a time.
Damn, this is so embarrassing and frustrating..
Congrats to all others, who finished their KVs in time.
