Thanks to Andrzej's willingness to give me a short extension I was able to finish the welbike. It would have been finished about three days ago, were it not for the fact that I managed to drop the bike during painting, breaking apart in five or six different pieces. After some rebuilding and much , I finally finished.

The welbike is painted in Tamiya dark green with some subtle weathering. I did not add any decals even though both the bike and container had some markings. Only the Tristar kit comes with decals for the two of them. Since I have both the Tristar and Dragon kits in my stash I may try my hand at a build log, comparing the three bikes.

Here are the pictures:









I may still do some touch ups here and there and work on the tires, they look kind of crappy in these pictures.

Andrzej, thanks for running this campaign and for letting me finish past the deadline. I hope my entry is a worthy addition. Pictures have been uploaded to the campaign gallery...

Lap Man,
Nice truck! My finished product will be a little smaller

Andrzej, I hope to have mine done tonight. The cables were giving me fits, but the building is done and the basecoat is drying as we speak. I'll try to get the detail painting done later on today...

Andrzej, thank you for hosting this campaign and getting ideas from me. It was a very fun build for me... I bet no one could have more fun than me while building my Hello Kitty AFV

Sal, if it's OK to join your campaign with BR-52 in condition in which it is in the moment (you've seen it...), than I am only too happy to do so! Thanks for invitation!

Tom - not much running from my side unfortunately... Family life sure is time consuming . I'm happy you had good time.

Hey Andrzej, Thanks for the cool ribbon and for running the campaign. Too bad that you didn't get your BR 52 finished but if I remember correctly from your last update you didn't get very far with it. So I think you should join my Military railroad Campaign and use that as your entry

@ Lap Man and Mark v - you have unnofficial extension (I don't want to bother local authorities aka Gary Kato with official extension) - please PM me as soon as you upload picture of finished model into gallery.

@ALL
Thank you very much for participating in this campaign. There were some interesting builds here.
Unfortunately health and family conditions did not allow me to give as much time and attention as I wanted. Also my BR52 as advenced in progress as it is is far from being finished.
So, thanks again for participating. Here is list of people who finished the campaign and earned a ribbon (Lap Man, Mark v, I'm waiting for your entries, so don't worry).

I've got mine finished, but i'm having a terrible time taking a good photo.. here is my latest attempt..

and don't laugh this was a "quick build" and I left my comfort zone of MM enamals and used some tamiya acrylics.. now I remember why I prefer the MM paints. LOL

Hasegawa Aircraft loading set.. (I don't build 1/72 aircraft so I have no missles or bombs to put on the trailers and dollies.. )



I'll have to wait for a sunny day to try outside, for tiny stuff like this that seems to work best..

I could use a few extra days, so the paint on my welbike will actually be dry for the final pictures

OK, who needs extension?
I know I do... Honestly speaking I'm not going to extend it just for myself because I have no idea how long it is going to take to finish my project...
I have to wait for another "Finish it Campaign"....

And here is an update from Last Minute Modeler Mark:

Parts ready to go. Did lots of dryfitting to make sure everything fits and ended up drilling out a lot of the predrilled holes. While the bike does not have a lot of parts, it does take some thinking up front as all you get in the instructions is one exploded view. Some parts need to go in a certain order for it all to fit together.



The wheels are four parts each (axle, two sets of PE spokes, and the tire). While the Tristar set has a template to bend the spokes, I followed the Hornet instructions, which has you use the tire:

1. Put PE on tire


2. Use rounded object (in this case the back of a pen) to bend the PE


3. And done!


4. Just pop the piece out, reverse it, glue in the axle, and add the other spokes. This worked surprisingly well.


And here is a picture of the progress so far: fuel tanks and engine are on. Not the best picture of the bunch.



More to follow soon...

Howdy

Had a productive night and got some building in.. nothing special just a basic quick build.

1/72 scale U.S. Aircraft Weapon Loading Set.



There is the Ford Tractor, followed by the ammo trailer and a General Purpose Dolly.

The Lift truck is in the center front and the far right is a Drop Tank dolly and the left front item is a Hydraulic Lift trailer.

Nice choice Delbert !
I had that set.. don't know where it is these days..

I hoped to get on board on this one but too many Campaigns lately so I had to decline this one.
I was planning on doing a BergeTiger (P) from Dragon. It will remain on my stash.

Howdy.

I pulled this down and put it on the bench last night.. I kept putting it off because I really wanted to finish my hanger queen build.

anyways, I think there is still time left for my Not-Fighting Vehicle.

its the Hasegawa 1/72 scale U.S. Aircraft Weapon loading set.



Its kind of an oddball in my collection as its something I received from a family member, even thought I don't build 1/72 scale aircraft, or even modern aircraft. LOL. So this will be a good use for it.
