A lot of interesting builds in this campaign. I have not decided what to build yet.
Maybe some sci-fi hover tank or APC.

More to follow later

I'm finishing up MiniArt's T-60 for a review; I think that would be a good entry for this campaign.

Slowly progressing. So far, very nice kit to build, except maybe cleanup of the parts.

And I'm joining with MiniArt's SU-85 in Polish markings from 1945:



This my first Miniart kit, and I'm positively surprised by the amount of plastic. Plan is to leave roof, possibly side etc off to show interior

I'm in! I've got half a dozen DML Sdkfz 251's to build and my favourite part of building them is the crew compartment. Not sure which version to build yet though.

Hello there

Here's what I'll be attempting (minus the engine bay).



Some tweaks required as per David Byrden's site but looking forward to it.

Cheers

Hi John,

You mentioned adding to existing kits, so taking that as a tangent I'm proposing finishing up with this:



It looks a little odd because it's going to be this:


When is an interior NOT an interior? When the hull is cut off to turn it into an exterior! The story is a farmer bought a surplus M4A2 Sherman from the UK government in 1947, and turned it into the world's most nifty tractor! I started this conversion several years ago, using an Academy M36 for the hull tub and FDA assembly, and collected a resin engine. The bulkheads are Evergreen, and there's lots more detail to do!

Does this qualify?

Hello all,

Update on the Rye Field Models Tiger I which is my entry for this campaign...
It's a nice kit that goes together quite well. Just a few additions in terms of wiring and stuff like that, and some changes based on the info on Tiger1.Info

Given things a quick spray of undercoat to help identify any problems.
Turret first... still need to add electrical panel and fuse box, and some detail to the vision block holders:





Driver's compartment...really not much is visible through the hatch but I've added what I think would be noticeable by its absence... still need to add a bit of wiring.



The brace between the front and centre of the tank you may notice is cut... mistake on my part as the hull was a little warped, I thought I'd straightened it but it warped again and ben this part. Once all the other "horizontal" pieces are in place, there's enough strength between them to hold things in place but this part alone was a little weak and it bent a bit. I cut it to relieve some of the stress and will fix it before I fit the hull roof. This particular area will be completely invisible (thankfully...)

For the R/O compartment, I only added a bit of wiring and then altered the MG ammunition storage as per David Byrden's info..



I left two ammo sacks missing on the left (rear rack) as they'll be on the MG mount itself.

Any comments welcome.

Cheers

Sean

Would railroad coaches be part of this campaign? I have a few 1/87 Pullman kits that come with complete interiors.

I've had a look through my half tracks this morning and decided that I'm going to use one of my Dragon 3 in 1 Sdkfz 251's. The one I'm using is kit no.6224 which is either a 251/1, a 251/7 or a 251/10 with the short shield, which is the one I'm going to go for as I've not built a 10 yet. Once I've made a start I'll post some pics up.

Made some progress. Built the roadwheel boogies and added on the return rollers.

Well, due to having to work on the model (and the long Christmas break) I've actually finished it in about two months...



















Fear not, I'll have others lined up with interiors... (Just building the Modelcollect E-75.)

I'm still in...I'm trying to decide between a M36 Jackson and a M3 Stuart. Once I figure out which one, I'll start posting some work.

I'm trying to decide whether to do Dragons 3 in 1 Nashorn, or their Late Panther G with a Tank Work Shop partial interior (driver/radio operator and turret)

Got mine interior painted,and varnished. Next is weathering. Talking about kit itself, detail is fine, nut some obvious items are missing. Such as gas mask containers, ammo ready rack on turret (for 8 magazines, in front of the ring). There is no instructions for the driver vision blocks (these are included in kit, but you must use artistic license to attach them). As well, massive turret ring renders guns fixed as soon as you glue spent shell sacks. Then lets speak about hatches. There should be brace on drivers hatch, to keep it open. It does not open until it reaches turret in real one. Engine hatches also seem to open to certain angle past vertical (http://svsm.org/gallery/PzkfzI/IMGP2673 ), but not 180 degrees. So if you want to picture them open, you must use some artistic license.
Interior itself is realy nice, but unfortunately not much from it will remain visible


Gray on the interior turned out darker than i wanted, but this became apparent only as i test fitted everything together. Some weathering dust will make it lighter a little bit.

Can the vehicle be open topped? I am considering a Sd.kfz. 251 for this campaign. Would that qualify?
