Oh, the Karl... this is a relatively old build (just showing off I guess) of the Hasegawa offering. It was a really nice kit, if anyone is thinking about building it.

YES!!!

Rail Guns, SP Howitzers, Towed Artillery and as well as Fixed Artillery... so the Atomic Annie fits RIGHT IN THERE!

The more the merrier!

Looks good Rob, I like it! Does it have a lot of parts or PE? Are you adding anything like figures or a base?

I'm still moving forward with my plans as I discussed with John. One or 2 of these guns and the ammo supply vehicle.

I need to start shopping around for tracks too.

Jeff,
The kit is plastic, resin and white metal. Not sure about figures yet.

Cheers Rob.

I just received the Takom Skoda 30.5cm which is perfect timing for the campaign. I haven't built a kit in, lordy, over a decade! The Skoda looks relatively simple so I think it's the perfect kit to build to get back into the game.

I'm looking forward to this!

Cheers!

So here's the model I am building, the Takom Skoda 30.5cm I started clipping parts this morning then thought I'd better show my work I'll post photos along the way (if that's OK) for those interested in this kit.

Er, just tried and realized I have no idea how to post a photo here! What do you do? I tried doing copy and paste but that didn't work.

Cheers!

Chris

I believe the easiest way is to host the images on another site for you to use.

I use Photobucket and it's free.

Hey, I think I figured this out. So here's the Skoda box and the mess of parts I've clipped.

Amen! That's why I'm trying campaigns (for the first time ever); maybe it'll give the push I need when I stall.

As for this campaign, I'll get rolling on my M12 pretty soon. I'm trying to get my stalled WoT campaign Sherman moving forward again first.

Seems I missed Rule #2? (can't say as I've noticed that rule before)


Quoted Text

The Rules and Regs
1. Builds must not be started before the campaign start date but must show all AM parts involved AFTER the start date.

2. Un-started kits must show a picture of the box(s) that the model you are building before the start date.



Hope I'm still good to go...

Date/Time of start:


As you can tell, I bought this from some one here on Armorama and some of the parts are loose (hope it's all here).



This is what I've done so far:



Nice little Howitzer that'll give me a break from that 1/35th Ratte I'm working on (and, lol, now that the bench is cleared some, I can still work on the air intakes for it).
