After review, I feel I'm jumping between Extreme Procrastination to Obsessive Ambition...


I listed four but I only have to finish one right ?

Some progress on the T-34


In retrospect the MasterClub tracks weren't the best choice. The resin pins break when i look at them, almost all the holes they are supposed to go in need drilling out so that takes some time. And copper wire which doesn't break. Perhaps (not unlikely) it's me, but i wouldn't recommend them. Still, my ego won't let me admit defeat yet

The front hatch needed some work, the weld lines on the turret too and the front end doesn't fit yet. But it's getting there

I'm in. I have a ton of models that fit into this category...so maybe a Unfinished Business #25 could be possible. But for now, I'd like to add this kit to this campaign.
Dragon #6577 Flakpanzer I with ammo trailer.
Are my images showing up below? I just switched to 500px.com for my picture archive since google photos won't work for me or is a pain to get to work. Thx

I love all the variants built on the Panzer I chassis. The only problem are the individual track links are sooo small!

This is the way it was left in 2016, but I made good progress in the past 2 weeks. Will upload up to date pics when I get home later.

I'm in with the Meng Merkava III BAZ. It needs some paint and some parts to fix. Photos come on Sunday

First proper experience with using PE, other than simple seatbelts. Was very frustrating, but rewarding! Lost or broke a few pieces and ended up scratching them. Some of the lamp guards & the wee lever coming out of the dash to name a couple. Added a few parts too - exhaust pipe, pump handle also lost & various bits of wire for the tie down loops etc. looking forward to final painting & weathering. I posted this elsewhere recently but got no comments -
"I'm still building a DUKW from the 2016 "Best Of Both Worlds" campaign lol! Haven't had any time at all due to house renovations and clogged up garage, so bad I couldn't get near my bench! I'll see if I can sign it up for one of the unfinished campaigns currently active.
Anyway, have had a good week or 10 days back at it - almost all construction work done, and painted base green, just awaiting an Iwo Jima camo scheme. Kit instructions say optional US National star or star inside a circle decals, but looking at 1945 pictures, I can't see any vehicle displaying insignia on I.J. Anyone got any insight or thoughts on this?"

Hopefully some advice now! (sorry about size of pics,
need to look into that)

I also had trouble with my first experience with photo-etched parts (AFV Club Wiesel MK20A1). Of course I had my first experience at age 61 after several strokes.

Your DUKW looks great!

My Land Rover has had the rear interior touched up, the missing windows and roof installed, and the rear doors are currently held shut with a liberal application of Humbrol Maskol on the inside. Just needs windows masking and it's pretty much ready for paint.

Some more progress on the Tiger. I'm not too concerned with the pin marks on the inside of the turret as these will not be visible once she's closed up.




The mantlet is a replacement part from Panzer Art with casting numbers. It took a little effort to drill through the resin, to get the barrel to fit but well worth it in the end.

I am in with this Pz.kpfw.IV Ausf. C from Dragon. It has been sitting on a shelf for close to 2 years now. It mainly going to be PE work with OVT, exhausts, and a few bits and pieces, as well as the metal tracks from Masterclub.
I am hoping to post an update soon!
