CAnt pay attention to one kit for very long these summer days
Meng's Toyota pickup with resin driver, head swap from a Black Dog CIA figure. Needed a little 'surgery' to get him to fit in the cab.





Going to fill the bed with some Live Resin, Meng, BLack Dog, and J's Works stowage

Got the figure installed, some backseat stowage added and am wrestling with the placement of the driver's weapon. Trying to decide between these.

One figure will be posed outside the truck with binoculars and the driver will get a walkie talkie in that 'should be holding the wheel but is not' hand.

Mike,
I had a good laugh at the driver. Guess he lost *ss, literally.


Take care,

Hello everyone,
I restart two unfinished kits built few years ago. The first kit is low-quality BRDM-1 from Eastern Express and the second is broken BM-21 from ICM.

Does a Chompbot count as armor? I would like to join! As you can see by the dust, this guy has been shelved for far too long.

Make sure you are logged in or the enlistment stuff won't show up.

You will see the "Enlist" button on the top of the right hand side of the page. Just click it to enlist.

Done! This is my first campaign. I am going to finish a Panther F from Dragon. I started last summer and never finished. I will send a photo when I figure out the photo upload process.

Just finished to build the Boxer. And a coat of clear varnish was applied before the weathering stage.






After around five and a half years of building this model I can see the finish line

Take a few laps around the workbench with your arms held high when you finish!

Some progress on the Chompbot:

I finished the mechanic



...and the cockpit



And here's a pic of the (almost-finished) driver inside the cockpit



I remember reading, back when I started this thing, that the Chompbot was built to fight an invasion of evil vegetables, so in addition to finishing the Chompbot and the little garage space I am going to build for it, I think I'll sculpt a small pile of anthropomorphic angry dead carrots and tomatoes for my mechanic to glare at.
