Pavel excellent finish! Extreme realism in 1/35.

Kind regards,

Pawel - I'm bowled over by your field gun. Are you sure its a model and not a real gun in a museum?



Thanks guys for kind words.


Good progress gentlemen. Good luck and lots of fun with model building.

My British 25pdr is completed. Wont be ending up in a diorama any time soon so I haven't bothered with most of the crew.

Just received the AFV Club PAK 43/41 kit in the mail from eBite.
For some reason I seem to suddenly be going crazy for artillery???
This will be my third big gun in two weeks!

A bit more work done on D-74 field gun to report. Most of the subs are done now and the paint mostly squirted on. There were some parts of this that I could not figure out from the destructions. I had to put the parts together to puzzle out where some of the bits went. Here are a few pics taken last night:

Something new to share - this one is NOT part of the artillery campaign because #1. it was never entered. Also it was originally started many years ago but only finished and painted just this past week, so it really does not qualify. Having recently finished my Dragon sFH 18, 150mm gun for the campaign, it was such an enjoyable experience that I had to go further by completing the only other piece of artillery I had on hand. This one is the old Tamiya Flak 36/37, 88mm kit with the addition of a metal barrel.

One modification to point out: I reworked the forward steering linkage to make it functional so the front wheels actually steer with the swing of the towing bar just as on the real thing!

Hope you like it.




Also added the arm rests to the brakeman's seat and the proper pioneer tools that seemed to be missing from the Tamiya kit and instructions.

I have been having a lot of fun with the Cold war era Trumpeter Soviet D-74 122mm field gun. It has tons of teeny-tiny parts that have been more than a little challenging for my old fat fingers & thumbs. The PE has been even harder. I'll have some pics of a little document holder or something that took quiet a lot of thought to puzzle out a way to fold it a bit later. This was a more advanced kit than I have built in the past but it has been fun to see progress at the end of each session.

Here are a few pics of work done over the weekend:








Looking sharp, Paul, nice clean work!

Had a problem with one of the parts on the Britannia Metal gun, some holes were missing....Great Customer Service from John Garcia,of Model Expo (http://modelexpo-online.com/ ), who within 30 minutes of communication agreed to replace the questionable part! Kudos to him!



Hmmm...a little optimistic on my part, still waiting...

great looking static artillery pieces so far.

Here is where mine stands as of today.



bought a PE tool for the build. Amount of times needed, 0. o well


There are quit a few errors in the kit. Including a spru which seems to be about 50% of part or more are for a HUMVEE. Need to fill in these holes and then let in sit for about a month until I figure the paint scheme.

Pawel, if you don't mind me asking; what coating did you use on your wheel rims? I have tried using pencil lead but the shine does not seem pronounced enough to really show up.
