@Mark - congrats to your impressive T-34, great job

I'm over the finish line, too. Here is my Northrop Gamma of 1934.

Calling my done.



This kit was quite a little monster, but I wanted to focus on color modulation and some other weathering effects so I intentionally stayed away from heavy mud and white wash. Tried to go for the look of a vehicle that had seen plenty of time in the field, but not a lot of action.

Good luck to everyone still plugging away!

That's your basic speed build right there, Alex. Nice job on your interior. Very cool subject.



Thanks. It's smoke and mirrors. I started it at the beginning of last month and took pictures as I went. I save them up and then post.

I'm really enjoying the build. I like ICM kits and what they've been able to do over the past few years...they've come a long way.

I'll be building ICM's 1/35 Panzerspahwagon P 204 (f). This is a French Panhard 178 Armored Car in German markings. The Germans captured a good number of these and they were pressed into German service. I will refer to this as a "Panhard" throughout the build.
I was debating between this kit and ICM's Zil-131 Soviet Military Truck. I decided to go with the Panhard. I had built the old Al-By offering back in the 90s and it was dated looking even then. At the time, there wasn't much French AFVs to pick from. This will be a good comparison.
Plus, this armored car probably will eventually find a place on what I am building for the I Really Want To Build This Kit Campaign.

Starter picture. The kit has a nice interior and engine. It comes with markings for four vehicles. If I do what I plan, I will probably go with an overall gray vehicle, probably serving as an auxillery vehicle in France. The plan is to have it recaptured by French Resistance....so FFI and the double-cross markings, probably "roughly painted by hand". As an aside, Vichy French vehicles would have had dual MGs instead of the 25mm gun and coax MG.


Vehicle floor and underside. Posed it next to the Al-By Panhard.


Vehicle floor, engine, and drivers' stations basically assembled. Very nice details. I prepainted as much as I could as I went. The cooling fan mount is a bit delicate.
The Panhard had two drivers' stations...one up front and one in the rear. Funny little note, for the actual Panhard 178 it took longer to construct the turret than it did the chassis.




Painting. The bulk of the interio was painted white. Engine compartment areas were painted medium green. The rest of the painting is basic. I drybrushed and dirtied up the interior.
Note the leafsprings are molded onto the hull side panels. This is a bit different, but it works well.



Started putting the body panels on. Fit was okay. A couple places will need some attention before paint.




Added the rear stowage boxes on the rear fenders. There is a metal piece on each front fender. They look like they could be used to store stuff.


The suspension and drive shafts are simplified. As mentioned, the leafsprings are molded to the side body panels. The differentials are quick and easy, but you'll have to note that the front axle needs to be mounted to the leafsprings first, then add the differential. Other suspension bits fit well.


And that's where I am now. I'll start on the turret next. So far, I am very pleased with this kt and how it is building up.

@Mark - your T-34 looks cooler every time

My Gamma gets more shape now, standing on its wheels.
Still more filling and filing to do, but I'm looking forward to the end result

Good luck with your builds, guys

Thanks, Clayton. I actually started out trying to follow Adam Wilder's very first ever tutorial on Missing Lynx, but since I don't have any of the enamels, I kind of broke formation at that point and did simplified mud effects with pigments. Plus, I wanted to keep the mud light on this one (in spite of the crappy kit road wheels), as I have tended in the past to go overboard on mud with Russian stuff.

Oh, and I'm still nowhere near Adam's results...

It's great seeing all the different subjects folks are coming up with for this campaign. I thought we'd have some el-crapo tank kits, but there are some cool airplanes going on, and groovy figures. Thanks to everyone for joining the fun. I can't wait to see what these all look like when they're done. All of you are proving that you don't have to go for the expensive big name kits to get a great end result!

My modeling skills are slowly improving, although you can't tell from my photography, which un-like a fine wine, is not improving with age:





Once I get back from travelling next week, I'll mount the running gear and call this one done!

Got a little further this longer weekend, we have Labour Day on 1st of May today




The kit needs some putty, filling etc., but that depends on the version you wanna build (7 Options!). As I build a TWA mail plane, I had to close up the front cockpit with scratch parts. Of course that means some filling
Have fun, mates

As far as I know, they are their own molds, I've built a couple of their 1/72 tanks, and they didn't have numbered sprues either

Thanks, Mark. They are cool little minis.

Peter, That is definitely something out of the ordinary. Very unique looking plane.

Hi mates,
I'm joining in the fun with that kit from Williams:

The Northrop Gamma




Probably try the NC-1375 of TWA

BTW much cool stuff already on your benches and some interesting subjects!

Some progress on my figures. Basic colors are on and the white metal body armor has been scratched to simulate wear in the city fighting.

Next are the washes and highlights.

More to follow
