Working on some basic interior painting on the Kubelwagen before I close it up:





I like the clean build you have there Larry!

Cheers.

Hello again and welcome to my update on my BRC40...

There was some pin damage on the main chassis part, but it will be mostly unseen when the build is complete, and there is a lot of flash on this kit.. I still have some to trim here and there.. every part seems to have a small bit and the main chassis part had a lot..

anyways here is some pics of the chassis.. lots of small parts and some were difficult to line up but so far so good.





here is a photo that shows the flash on this kit..

Hallo
I'll enter the building with Tamiya GAZ67B field car. The only aftermarket that I will use are DEF tires (just ordered).

Time for me to chime in here I suppose!

Box and start pics, with my little man Darcy having a look in . . . .




This build will be included in a P-47 Diorama I am starting on now. I am planning to have the top off, driver talking to a pilot, radio operator standing on the front passenger seat barking angry instructions at wayward taxiing Jugs!
I'm using this image as a bit of inspiration.

There will be a Tamiya 6x6 Fuel truck in the mix as well.
Hoping to start on sub-assemblies tonight, fingers crossed.

Cheers, D

A couple of hours at the bench and most of the sub assemblies are together.


I think the red and white chequer decals on this one will be fun! I need to keep the outside of the body as clean as possible, free from handles, fittings etc. the plan is to paint the interior, dashboard etc, then grey primer and white paint on the outside to give the best base for the decals. Then I can add the fittings inside and out.

I am putting together the sub assemblies of the 6x6 Fuel Truck as well so I can paint both vehicles at the same time.

I am a confirmed noob at armour and soft skins so any and all suggestions, comments and critique gratefully accepted.

Cheers, D

Been missing in action for a while, while playing WoT as a tournament player. Now with the new Tier 10 tournament rules, I have quit the game, so more time to model.

Here is what I will be building for this Campaign.

I will be building this in the USMC design, and it will be OOB to get my eye back in before moving forward with my new purchases.

Let me be the first person with the GPA in this campaign.



I will use mostly parts from the new release of GPA, wheels and suspension will be borrowed from Jeep and the lower hull is the single part form the old release of GPA. The reason of using this hull is that I already started to correct the tunnel at the bottom before I gave up.


And of course there will be some photoetched parts.


And finally the proof photo:

Okay, so I just stormed through this build, which was good, but I forgot to stop to take WIP shots.

So here is my M151A2











This was a great vehicle to get my eye back in. Thanks for putting this campaign on. Now off to the 500+ Campaign for my M270.

Great work everyone! Wish I could get off the chassis with my SAS build. May need to switch out if I can't get motivated soon.

Here's a few more in progress shots. The Bronco jeep is pretty cool, very detailed, with lots of very small parts and PE. Also, a neat thing about this kit is that they have incorporated the specific variations the Brits incorporated into their glider deployed jeeps. The trailer model is a work of art, however, I had a major molding defect, which amazed me, given the degree of fidelity and detail throughout the kits thus far. The trailer axle was missing a large chunk from one of the ends, so I used squa photo B133AA6D-EBB8-495A-94E0-42A7895E9466_zpsfckwxfqs.jpgre Evergreen to fabricate a new axle end. Here you go....

Next step is paint, and the figures. I also need to think about a base, and the final presentation. This whole kit is based on a famous image from Normandy, and Bronco really nailed it.

Here is my entry for this campaign, the Tamiya SAS Jeep. I think I will be using figures from the Dragon set though.

I just put up a new shelf in my office. Specifically for Light Utility Vehicles, including the new build M151A2.

In order, my Kfz.II VW Typ 166 "Schwimmwagen", VK Kdf.z Typ 82 "Kubelwagen", Aerosan RF-8/GAZ-98 and M151A2 w/ TOW Missile Launcher. And of course the Two Kings from Lord of the Rings
