Gentlemen! I'm calling this one done. THanks for the Kind comments and the great Campaign!











It was a simple, yet fun to build kit. I still think the side skirts are too thick. Except for Friuls, this one is OOB.

Cheers!

johhar,
You're a dedicated campaigner! I appreciate you sticking with us even though you've had to change kits.

I finally realized I won't be able to complete the Humber armored car by the campaign deadline due to some detours so I found a kit I'm pretty sure I can.

Unfortunately I have to surrender to the no longer deniable that I won't finish the Humber armored car by the campaign deadline due to some detours. Luckily I found a kit that's much less of a build that I should be able to finish.

Jose,
Glad to see the quick start on your Marsupiale. Unfortunately, there are many things made by Italeri that nobody else has tried. Si, it's always nice if we can add little things to the exterior.

I still waiting for an M5.



You and a zillion other people around the world Jose. #D in scale do a conversion set you can get from Shapeways, but at 2-3 times the price of the host Dragon kit, that is an investment!

Nice start on the 82. Italeri may not be super detailed and sometimes fit is an issue, but some very fine models can be made from them. I'm sure this will be one of them.

Thanks for the welcome Gaz and Peter.

Peter: It`s a tipical Italeri kit..... I try to update only the exterior, I try to see the interior when the two parts of the fuselage closed and you didn`t see anything.
By the way, you are making a good work in the halftrack...., I still waiting for an M5. The Argentine Army have a lot of these several years ago...

I start in my SM 82

Peter,
I was beginning to wonder...

Glad to see your start! Looks like a great kit.

Gaz



Well you have seen it up close at the last couple of meetings... about the only time I had to do work on it with other builds needing finishing.



Uh, huh....

Damian, great to see you back in still punching.



Well, you'd need something with bigger stopping power than messed up clear coat to derail me.

Well Gaz, time I posted some pics.

My build for the campaign Dragon M3 75mm GMC with:

Hussar M3 front wheels (old pattern);
RB Model 35B92 aluminium and Brass barrel for M3 GMC;
plus a few Griffin Etch sets.
L35027 WW2 American M3 75mm GMC;
L35A039 Ready Round Ammo Rack for M3 75mm GMC; and
L35A041 Rear Vehicle Stowage for M3 75mm GMC/T48 GMC

A shed load of etch... not all will be used

Forgot to post start up but...



Have put together the basic suspension components and cleaned up wheels. Etch in the floor area of the cab and gun and mount well under way:

Welcome Jose. I too will be interested in this one, as I haven't seen that kit built either.

I restarted M3A1 scout car. With the second attempt, I'll do some more details. Like this inlet (no idea for what), originally flat plastic pies, here carved and to be covered with fine PE mesh.

Jose,
Welcome to the campaign! I've never seen the Marsupiale modelled, so I'm super keen to see your build!

Excellent Stefan. Those first pics remind me of a blow up dummy tank!

The camo work is superb.



DITTO!
