Gary- Well here it is skidding into the finish line. I went with gray. I will still try doing some weathering tomorrow. Hopefully its good enough for the end.

Okay, with only about 2 1/2 hours until it is Sunday on Baker Island, I call Annie done. She is still a bit shiny from the last top coat, and there may be some touch-ups to do but for now she is complete. Looking at another build I found online which was for the Trumpeter version, I have found some missing items I plan to recreate and add on later on, as well as building/painting the crew and making a base. The Peddinghaus decals were a bit thick, so I need to hit them a few more times with setting solution as well. Also, as predicted, I broke off quite a few small pieces...most of them during the last few hours.

Congratulations, Shell! Love it! What an impressive display of a mighty artillery piece.

Well done!

Congratulations to all of you who were able to complete your builds!

We've had a great little campaign.

I've updated the front page, and given awards to those who successfully completed the campaign.

My apologies to anybody I may have missed. I've triple checked but I am only human. Let me know if I've missed you and we'll get it fixed.

Hurrah!

Congrats to all who completed the campaign.

Now I am off to finish Stalingrad, the Eastern Front, and Bandai Star Wars. Ten weeks to go!

Hello Gaz,
Many thanks for the enthusiasm you gave to this campaign (too) and for your flexibility to let it be finished by some notorious deadline-missing lads
And of course thanks to all of you for the support to each other and (as I described armorama to my wife) for being the most relaxing, comfortable and accommodating forum over all!
cheers,
Zsolt

ps. see you in the next campaigns

Gary- I got them uploaded.

A lot of nice stuff has been posted.

Awesome rail gun Shell Bush. Would love to try and build it. But, no where to put it. Thats what keeps me away from choppers also.

I have built the IBG 1/35th scale Otter; a few accuracy issues around the doors and the driver hinged visor panel being too long and the fenders a smidgen too short in vertical height (and 1/48 scale pioneer tools!) The mortar tube is the post war truncated cone Dutch version, not a straight tube. With some TLC it comes out quite well. Not sure if the 1/72nd scale has the same issues around the doors and visor but the difference in the fender would unlikely be noticeable.

For my build I just sliced out a section of the door, repositioned the hinges and added a strip in the bottom of the door opening to raise them to the right height. Same for the visor:



Great build! I hadn't really noticed any accuracy issues, but then again I have little in the way of references to compare it against. My guess would be that the same errors are on the 1/72 if the bigger kit had them. I'll check when I get around to building it and see how I can improve. Thanks for the heads up.

Do what I did and put yourself a cot in the basement. Your bed is probably big enough to hold the model even if you are married, and your wife/SO will appreciate that it doesn't snore or pass gas during the night.
