Hello everyone! I wanted to post my official start pic. Picked this guy up at a show in Feb thinking it would be fun to do something besides a gun tank, then saw this campaign. Talk about good timing. I am currently working on a Wespe for the Italian Front campaign but as soon as that is complete I will crack into this. A lot of great builds. Looking forward to watching everyone work progress. All the best!

Torsten, I like it.
Kalin, nice choice.
Richard Long, welcome.
Richard S, good luck with weather next week.

Today package with Sd. Kfz. 7 dials finally arrived. So I am finished with it.



Maultier is almost finished, I am waiting to order some wooden and ammo boxes.

MasterClub tracks took few days to complete but they are worth time and money.

Now, if there is no problems, I would like to make another entry.

Actually, I am thinking of braking number 10 in this campaign.

Thanks folks!

Peter, the trucks of the "Folgegeneration" are truely powerfull with their permanent 4WD. They go everywhere the tanks go. My truck never let me down. Only once I needed to be towed out of deep deep mud by a "Bergeleo". Nothing else helped. It took 5 hours before these guys came. A day I will never forget. But that's another story. The trucks are now in use with the Bundeswehr for 40 years, that means something. Most of the "heavy duty" trucks in our army are made by MAN.

Richard, you poor chap! I hope weather over there becomes better for you soon to do some work on your model. While I "re-organized" my stash I found another MAN 5 to gl kit in the original package from 2001. Didn't know I had it but on the other hand it's obvious that it's a "must have" for me. As I have the Tankograd book of the GECON ISAF vehicles I thought I would look nice to have another MAN in desert camo as they are used in Afghanistan. But not now and not for this campaign. Maybe for "Logistics Part 2" ....

Kalin, good luck for your build!

Hello everyone!
I start with a MINIART model: L1500A German 4x4 Cargo truck, 35150, scale 1:35. This is the initial photo.



Good luck!

Yes! Very good paint job so far Torsten! I'm still hoping to get the UN white applied to mine. Weather hasn't been very cooperative lately.

I'm going to be on Spring Break all next week so fingers crossed that I'll get some time for model stuff.

Looking good Torsten. It is a beefy looking vehicle.

Nice choice, Richard! I've seen a ZIL 131 as a fire fighter truck last summer in Latvia. Interesting vehicle.

I have been a bit on the slow side with my build. Last week I also started my build for the Foreign Fighters Campaign on Aeroscale and last weekend I "re-organized" my stash .... OH MY GOD!!!

Anyway, here is a small update of my MAN. First Revell 65 Bronce Green over all ....


.... in the last days I airbrushed Vallejo 71251 NATO Black. First on the driver's cabin ....


.... and today on the cargo area ....


.... it sure is not 100% correct but close. NATO Brown will follow soon and then some paint corrections. Still have to scratch build that warning sign for dangerous goods ....

The company my Father works for recently closed up operations and one of the bits he was able to acquire is a professional grade Paasche spray booth, which now sits in my hobby room.




Niiiice!

SWMBO demands I not only paint outside, but it stays out until it is dry. She gets migraines and strong smells like perfumes and thinners can set her off, so I can't blame her.

Therefore I do most of my airbrush painting when she is out...


Most of people in this hobby have that problem. Few years ago my wife lost sense of smell and taste. So, lucky me. I can spray whatever whenever I want. Only thing she can complain about is dust... And, like Totsten I am based in the kitchen. Good thing about having bench in kitchen is that I have sink and trash can on my right and refrigerator and cabinet with all my modelling stuff in the left. Perfect position.

[snipped]

Richard, I have no hobby room and do all airbrushing in the kitchen, believe it or not. So I can work 365 days per year. And all the paint which doesn't go on the kit, goes on the old newspaper underneath. Okay, I only use acrylic paints. Never have used enamels with the airbrush, only with a hairy stick in my earlier days. White on my MAN is just the primer, the truck will get NATO Standard Camo.

Torsten



I'm doing hairspray chipping of the white over a base coat of Tamiya NATO green.

I have to do all my painting outside.

Thanks for your comments, guys! But I haven't finished yet ....

You are wrong there. I am building vehicles for the last few years. Aircraft's are my first love ....


Same here, Bogi! Started with planes, which I still build more than AFV's (mainly WW2 era) and in 2013 I layed my hands for the first time on a Leopard 2. So we can shake hands! The 2 paint brands I have mostly in use are Revell Aqua and Vallejo. Especially the spanish paint works perfect with my airbrush. The others I use from time to time are Gunze and Tamiya.

Thanks for the offer but I'm not really a fan of weathering as you can see on my Gripens. On my aircraft builds I prefer to do nothing and leave the work to the dust on the shelf of pride .... Even my AFV get only a bit of pastel chalk to give them a slightly dusty look like these guys. Don't want to ruin my models. So will my MAN. I still have a photo of my truck from the summer of 1987 or 1988 and it's just dusty. We took good care of the material. Okay, from time to time it was covered in mud after a day out in the training area ....

Nice work on the 5T, Torsten! Mine has the green base coat on it. I'm just waiting for the weather to warm up a little so I can go into the garage without wearing a parka and put down the hair spray and the white top coat. Hopefully this weekend..........
