Again, thanks for a nice, well-run campaign and to the enlistee's who built many unique and little seen models, I mean, not everything is a Panther, Tiger or a Sherman!



It was fun for me too, I enjoyed seeing the builds that our campaigners entered. With the future Poland 1944 campaign we will see some of the more mainstream builds.

Yes, I did build one for the DOG Campaign, but hey, Dogs are people too! I actually have another kit in my stash, that one has indy links...



You have a 7TP kit with indy links? This is one I do not know about. Tell us more!



Well, technically it's a Mirage T-26/BT 2 (memory is not what it used to be, )...molded in white plastic with indy links. Instructions all in Polish...

Depending on the configuration, that T-26 might be a version used during the Spanish Civil War . . .

Nice finish guys, congrats!

Well, my armored car never got to the wire The farthest I got to was a gloss coat in preparation for the washes. Lesson learned -- never start too close to the deadline as surely there will be snags that can hold you down.

Cheers to all!



Tat - You are not too far from completion. If you want to complete go ahead. I will monitor this thread for a couple of weeks. This goes for anyone else who can finish their model soon. If I can still award the ribbon at that time I will do so.

I unfortunately somehow missed the end of the campaign. I have no idea how this happened.

Did you have a build near completion? If you just need another week or so I would say go ahead and finish your model and post your pictures here and to the campaign gallery. IF I am still able to award the ribbon, I will do so. I do not want this campaign to be prolonged too long however.

If we have enough interest maybe we can do a Poland 1939 take 2 at some future date.

Great! I'll keep monitoring the thread for a while yet. I'm looking forward to seeing your finished model.

I have not been at the bench for over four months due to ill health so unfortunately was unable to get anywhere near completing my build.

Some excelent builds there so well done to everyone and thanks to those who arranged the campaign.

Damn, unfortunately I missed the deadline too

I should've chosen something less frustrating than this 7TP. It killed my modelling mojo (hopefully not for good ).
So it lands on the "unfinished business" shelf with remark - do not open until Milky Way collides with Andromeda

Cheers,
Radek

I agree this model is very frustrating,|:( but I managed to put it together. Now I have to assembly tracks, I don't like it. Soon I will send some pictures.

I found the Fruil tracks for the Soviet T-26 fit perfectly and really improve the look. I posted pics earlier.

Radek - Sorry to hear about your missing the boat here. We will be having a Poland 1944 campaign a bit later & maybe next year a Poland 1939 Take 2 if enough folks are interested.

Oh, I'll definitely join both The 1944 gives more choices to select from
And for Take 2 I'll also choose something more handy (IBG has some nice new stuff coming in this year, incl. PZL.23 & PZL.37 planes, maybe something more in future).

@Pablo_G
Pawel, great progress on 7TP... maybe some day mine will follow

Pawel - I love your paint, it looks much like the illustrations. I see you also sanded off the molded on tools and added some aftermarket items. It does make it look better. I also see some PE fender braces? It looks better than the kit plastic ones.

Your tracks came out very well. Are they aftermarket?
