Like your camo, Iain.

Two weeks left, everyone. We going to make it?

Well I have managed to get decals on, and have one more day this month where I should be able to do some serious modelling, so fingers crossed I can get tracks on and finished in time.

Tracks are on! Not as difficult as I anticipated, the first went on reasonably easily though the second is being a little obstinate.




Going to have to glue a few of the links on the second track, where they are pulling apart slightly, few more dodgy links on that side.

Yep, Indy links can be a real pain sometimes, but in the end, I think the results are worth the effort.

Thanks for the comments Iain, Clayton. I've decided to go for a dunkelgrau finish to keep things simple. Last night I painted the tracks. Finished it off with decals and gloss coat.




Washes next.

Cheers,

Tat

Looking good Tat, paint job is nice

My bishop is nearly complete. Need to fit the periscope and reinstall a headlight due to a broken support arm.
Also had to replace a piece on the front of the turret after it went ping, and vanished in an unknown direction. Used a piece from my Dragon kit. Not quite the same size but hopefully will be reasonably inconspicuous after all the paint touch ups are competed.

Fingers crossed I might even have it finished by the weekend.

Need to double check, but I am pretty sure I have completed my Bishop. Last few bits (that haven't vanished with a ping into the unknown), are on and paint touch ups are mostly done.

No doubt when I can finally take some pictures to upload, they will show up a few areas that need attention, but for all intents and purposes I think I am done!

Kit is done.



















There are a few small bits missing, but that's mostly because they are actually missing, rather than I couldn't be bothered to add them.

The only things not included in the kit are the antennas, and the pipe from the external fuel tank.

Rather than "make antenna plastic frame channel from the heat of fire" as described in the instructions, the antennas are 0.5mm steel rod, and the fuel pipe is some nickel coated copper wire I had handy.

The only thing I really don't like is the limber, and the poor fit I have ended up with the ammo trays. The fit of the wheels is also not brilliant, but I can't see what, if anything I might have done wrong in the instructions.

Images have been uploaded to the gallery

Congrats on your finish Iain!

I present my contribution to the campaign:







The ammo came from the Hobby Boss Munitionschlepper kit which am thinking of building for another campaign.

Thanks Mark for having me in this campaign, and congrats to all!

That looks great, Tat, super job!! Your painting has produced every shade of grey there is and it looks very very authentic.

Short of anyone asking for a last minute extension, today is the last day to get those builds wrapped up! If you haven't already, please get at least one photo of your completed build into the campaign gallery.

I'll award first round of ribbons later today, and catch up any late finishers tomorrow.

Thanks for playing, everyone!
