So, as per previous post, I have a back up to try and meet deadline - the Plus Model 1/35th Sd Anh 32 Ammo trailer. The moulding on the lower tool box brackets was damaged but I thought I could get away with it, but looking at the pics, they clearly need to be replaced.

Rather than have to make up ammo to fit the very small holes in the brass etch, I decided to button her up



Replaced the Notek convoy light with a better detailed Dragon one. I also replaced the Shovel with one from the spares box and used an Aber clamp and some etch fret section for the clamp and shovel holder.

Peter, I see that not only do I have a resin problem. But it looks wonderful. After painting it will be even better. Good luck.

I hear you, gentlemen!

That's why they say resin is not for the faint-hearted...

I've built several kits since my first resin build (PlusModel's Pavesi/Resin I Campaign), but honestly-I have yet to find another resin kit of such quality (maybe the Steyr 640, I received last week?!?).

Splendid job on the Sd.Ah.,Peter!

It is difficult to compare with professionals.

Bace, I'm looking forward to starting work on the Steyr 640.

Hello everyone!
I managed to finish building my project in the camp. I think I've done it. Here are photos:
1. Before weathering







2. After weathering. I've used Tamiya weathering master (Set A and B) and oil paint from "502 Abteilung"








It was a pleasure to participate.
The ambulance will become part of this:



Good luck to all!

You're welcome, Pasi!
Both the quality of the kit and your build are really top notch!

Watching your Sank(r)a built was my pleasure too,Kalin!

Wish you a good start,Lap Man!
Sure this will be another stunner of yours!

Gentlemen,
We have 23 days left.
Should anyone need bit more time to finish a participating build, please let me know so I can apply for dead line extension.

I also remind those of you, who already have finished builds but did not upload at least 2 pictures to Campaigns gallery, to do so(R&R say: no pictures in gallery-no ribbon)!

Gallery is here:
https://gallery3.kitmaker.net/showgallery.php/cat/31419

Good luck!

Replaced the broken Bracing at the bottom of the front and rear of the box.

Have primed and pre-shaded since these pics.




Removed the mud flaps since then too, as I could find no pics with them this long. Several pics show none, so I have chosen to go that way.


I don't suppose anyone has a pic of the connector for the wiring to fit the socket on the vehicle??

Thanks Peter and Angel.

Finished painting driver. Not perfect, but fun to paint anyway.



There are couple of shiny spots that will be fixed with matt varnish.

Here is my finished build. Quite a nice beast.

I will try to take better pictures when the weather clears and I can take pictures outside.

Well, at least I finished the Sd Anh 32. Puma is still being glowered at...





100% acrylic paints. Tamiya Base colours, Shovel and weathering with various Vallejo paints.

...and MIG will tell you, you can't weather with acrylics…
