Thanks Colin, Dustin!

I was looking at it while preparing to put on a gloss coat for the wash. The detail on the grill or air vent at the back of the turret wasn't too good look at. So I cut some mesh and strips of plastic to fashion what can pass on as some sort of cover. It surely won't get the nod of any contest judge in either accuracy nor quality -- but I guess its good enough for me



We're expecting a typhoon this weekend so I went out early and did the gloss coat. Hope to get on to the washes by tomorrow.

Cheers,

Tat

Congrats on your finish Sal!

Two weeks to go and here's where I'm at. I Used a rattle can for the sandy base coat. Did the wash on the lower hull / running gear so I can mount the rubber band tracks, weather and finish before marrying the lower and upper hulls.



I typically stretch the rubber bands prior to mounting, but I guess I got a bit far on one of the runs this time. Staple wires to the rescue, only to have another issue on the connection points where the ends meet. Glued the tracks on the idler -- it has held on so far.



I then went on to brush paint various shades of the base color on selected areas, panels.




Next up would be an overall wash for the upper hull and turret.

Cheers,

Tat

Learned a bit of simple rust weathering so decided not to go for the whitewash camo after all. That'll do for this one.

Thanks Fellas for the kind words!
I learned a lot on this one and look forward to building another or maybe a Soumua.

That Char B is just awesome! You must be crosseyed after painting all of those thin black lines, very impressive.

I'm calling this one done! Some great builds here and it was a joy building this Char B and seeing everyone's work turn out so well. Hope we do it again in 2017!

Hello lads,

Slowly, but steady forward
Mazda RX-7 takes some more shape on interior.
I finished dashboard and mid-panel with gearbox lever and handbrake.

Next - the worst nightmare to me so far --> masking and painting windows. Good I have leftover from kit I screwed last year... I have additional 'live' left

Some pics of finished cockipt (please let me know if you have any issues seeing images - posting via Google+).





Cheers,
Radek

Thank you for the extension until end of October. This is good news.
I primed the T54 mod. 1949 this weekend and laid down some Vallejo model air Russian Green, attempting a little colour modulation. The Friul tracks are now a rather bright and shiny metallic grey. Lots more work to do, but confident I'll finish. Photos coming soon, I hope.

Cheers

Matthew

Any extension is most welcome John. Do you mean another 2 weeks beyond 31 Oct?


At 1st I was under the impression that this ended on September 30 but the campaign page says October 31.
I should be finished by the end of October haven't had much bench time lately

I was thinking this would end on 30 Set... nevermind.

Mid Oct there will be a better picture of who needs an extension to wrap up the build.
