Tamas: super nice PE work.

I've decided to join in the fun with the only Trumpeter kit I have ready to build.

Trumpeter Soviet Aerosan RF-8/GAZ-98 in 1/35th scale.







Happy Modeling,
Zon

Me too. I have never build modern tank so for me it looks complicated enough without trying to paint or wether it. Hats off Tamas.

Hi Tamas,

That‘s an excellent, clean build - the photoetch work is masterful.

Looking forward to seeing it painted!

Gentlemen,

I have just finished the building process, now start painting. It was very long story but I enjoyed it a much. It was also a god practice before the Meng T-90A kit.

I think the painting will start in September only.

Cheers,

Hi Angel!

Awesome job on your KV - with the mud, streaking and missing fenders, it really looks the part of the old, battered war-horse. Your photography is effective here, too - the low-angle shots are especially dramatic. I would have a hard time giving this one up, for sure, but if it‘s going to your brother-in-law, at least you can visit it a lot.

But if some day I decide to scratchbuild the Soviet 57 mm. AA Gun S-60 (he served on one of these guns as a loader), I'll definitely keep it for my collection.



That would be very cool.

Your HIMARS is looking really good, Jerry!



Thank you!

I see, David!

Thanks Bogi!
I made a promise to myself to build the KV-1 for him and I'll hold it.
Besides- he'll be happy with the KV (he already has a T-34/76 and a T-14 Armata built by me).

Thanks Ken!
Missing fenders are the only way to build 2 KV kits with only 1 PE Fender set

Well done David!
Do you intend to add an engine?



I have managed to get a miniart t34 engine and transmission set as well as the t54 engine as well but I'm not sure if I will have time to complete them. it's a real shame there isn't an engine set for this kit as alot of the panels open up although the engine access door on the rear of the upper hull is molded on which is a shame.

Well Angel, if I am at your place I would apologize to him and offer some excuse... And keep model for myself.
Excellent build.

Your HIMARS is looking realy good, Jerry!

Tamas and Bogi- I'm still amazed by the quality of your builds, gentlemen!

Because of my BLG-60M-2 AVLB scratch-bash-conversion build for "Once More Unto the Breach" Campaign, I have been idling on my KV-1 build for almost 2 months.
Yet time is running out, so I did some final touches this evening and declare herewith my KV-1 finished:






This Saturday, it will go to my brother-in-law as a jubilee present for his 50th anniversary,

Tamás, nice progress on your T-72. I built the T-72B Mod.1985 (the one without any ERA) a couple of years ago, and boy, do I remember all those PE discs for the anti-radiation cladding. That’s some great PE work in general you‘re doing.

Bogi, you’ve really nailed the look of the 17cm artillery piece in your reference photos - brilliant!

As for me, I‘ve put the basecoat on my HIMARS, but it‘ll stay at this stage until September/October, once I’ve finished my build for the Stalingrad campaign. Detail painting is next, then I‘ll put it together and weather it, etc. In the second and third photos, I‘ve just loosely fit the sub-assemblies together without glue to give a general impression of what it‘ll look like:







Have fun,

Jerry

I could spend some time at my bench and had a little progress on the hull of the Trumpeter 1/35 scale T-72B Mod 1990 kit.

Lots of a/m parts added from the ET Models set, the details look very promising now. I tried to use such exhaust cover in the past w/o good result, but now I like what I see.

Still a lot to do, but as busy I am at work it will happen probably in August.

Finished.
I spent five days in cleaning, gluing and preparing for painting. Lot of time, considering that I am on vacation, spending much time on the workbench.

I used this photos as a guide



I decided not to paint it but to sand it, finish I am playing for a while now.
So, finished model








Good luck to everybody with ongoing builds.
