@bunker buster: great job on finishing your m1a1 longtime shelf-queen. It looks really great with all the stowage. I hope to post some pics of my almost completed Tamiya panzer iv d very soon (well maybe)....
Cheers

Seems like forever since I posted any progress.
Got the base coat down



Then the cammo and decals





The figure is just there temporarily until I can get the two I have for this kit done.

Finished up the FM Millenium Falcon , only a WIP for 15+yrs.. for Hangar Queen #497 and was going great guns on a sci-fi kit until the wife 'accidentally knocked it off your bench'


I haven't been back to the jadg lately.
These next couple of weeks have a little more the elusive 'free time' to get back in the groove.

Good progress on the King Tiger. The figure looks good too!

Mike,
You know I remember my mother knocking models off the shelf and breaking them while dusting. Back then I thought it was accidental but now maybe not so much.

Unfortunately I have nothing to report except a happy accident with my Kettenkrad where I broke the front wheel assembly off. Makes it easier to paint!

Progress on the D9R. Cab mostly done, but not glued down, a bit more to do. Lots of painting and weathering to do. Will be using Israeli green.

And another dark horse, out of nowhere, off the shelf of shame and onto the workbench..
Bandai 1/35 Gundam 'Operation Cyclops' jeep thing.
Now finally assembled and with decals.
Still needs a final flat coat and a small base.



Next up the big old hovertruck thing..

I lost my modeling mojo but I hope to get it back soon.

It's a sweet little kit with loads of hidden stowage details. Both of the back seat outer side panels could be posed open with stowage detailed, also under the seats and under that panel behind the seat. For the longest time I couldnt figure what to pose open or not.
Finally decided to just finish the kit and move on. The hood/dash junction is a bit fiddly and the instructions for the deployed or stowed mg aren't the clearest, but I muddled through.
Overall the construction and engineering is top notch. Right up there with the Bandai Star Wars kits.

@GaryKato - Gary,

I have a 1/76 Revell Firefly that I was unable to finish over in the Memories of Matchbox Campaign and would like to know if I could enter that project here before it collects dust and get it done?

@GaryKato – Gary,

Here’s where I left off due to life things and a bit of losing some of my modeling mojo too! Gary let’s get back in the race and build, build, build like crazy plastic eating zombies!

Hope my mojo comes back so I can finish at least one build.

This campaign is military vehicles only - no airplanes.
