Quoted Text

Hello Mark, I use blu tack to assist in airbrush the camouflage, it's not reusable after painting but it works fine.



I have blu-tak I have been recycling for quite awhile, but I've not used it for large-scale masking like that. I used Panzer Putty once and found that it left an oily residue in the acrylic paint. Yours looks great.

eMan,
I really like the camo. Did you use Panzer Putty?

Just wiped my future buy on evil bay. Thanks however for the quality type No. Will take a look at them. Going to join this campaign with a towed Big Gun.
Will be an easy build, all covered for transport.
Introduction and pictures will follow ASAP.

Nice campaign to watch, good luck everyone,

Hallo, Mark! Wonderful idea to make a model of Sd.Kfz.7 Late production, but ...sprue casting leaves much to be desired.

Kalin,

Sorry to hear about the quality of kit, but it sure does have a lot of detail for the under belly.

ComradeMP,

Those Trumpeter KV tanks are really simple kits to assemble. I have finish the KV-1 and KV-8 and they were one of the most enjoyable builds I have been involved with.

I also have the KV-3 in my stash so I will be most interested as to how it turns out.

Hello everyone!
My first progress on Trumpeter's kit 01507: Sd.Kfz.7 Late.
I definitely do not like the kit. The latest models of Trumpeter's towed tractor (No.01583 and No.09538) are of much better quality.






Good luck to all.

Coming in with something I've been wanting to build for awhile, from way back when I was still new to World Of Tanks. The mighty KV-3. If we can get another WOT campaign again sometime, I'd like to build another one with the Dt-25.

Got the Trumpeter KV-3, I've been slowly been working on it for awhile now, but haven't posted it yet.

I have that kit, and will be watching your build with interest.

Hello!
In the campaign I will participate with the model of Sd.Kfz.7 Late Version.

These are the starting photo.

Applied a flat coat. I tried using Vallejo Satin varnish, as i do have a bunch of it, but it kept clogging the airbrush. So i cleaned the AB and used the Testors Flat.
I used Vallejo Acrylics for highlighting/ dry brudhing. You can see it in my poorly lit pictures, but i think i like oils better.

Since I am already halfway through Dragon's K5 Leopold for the Italian Campaign, I figured I would go ahead and build another big gun.



It came with a metal barrel from the original owner which I will be using, but otherwise it will be OOB and scavenged bits.

Started on the lower chassis:

I'm a bit late but I'll probably jump in with Trumpy's USMC LAV-25 in 1/35 scale. I should be starting in a few days.

That KV 7 is interesting. I didn't know anything about it until i found it on tankarchives.blogspot.com.
As for my KV-1S, tracks are built, base coated and installed. Glosscoat and decals installed. A quick pinwash and overall dirty wash.

I then highlighted the tracks, installed fenders and fuel tanks and some odd pieces i left off. The head light took a flight when i was going to intstall and now need to locate it.

Flat coat next.

Scott, nice BMO-T, looking forward to your painting and weathering.

Peter, same for your Tupolev!

Rory, your tiny Schnellboot turned out great! Producing builds + finishes of this quality so quickly is an art in itself.

Mark, I really like your KV-7, your very restrained weathering is just right for a proving-ground vehicle.

Marc, good job so far on your KV-1S. Even if the color modulation didnt turn out the way you wanted it to, once you apply some washes and, if you want, dust it up a bit, nobody will be able to tell - it always amazes me how much weathering changes the hues and intensity of the basecoat.

Mark, awesome beast - I love Soviet/Russian eight-wheelers (or, like the Topol, even more) with various massive weapons mounted on the back.

Ive finished most of the build stage on my HIMARS. Next comes the paint and the final cab assembly, etc. Because Im in a number of other campaigns that conclude before this one, progress wont be very rapid, Im afraid:

Assembly phase of the Rubezh ASCM is done:

Subassemblies are just dry fit and in various states of priming/painting.

Messing with the basecoat. Bought a Vellejo 4 - BO modulation set and attempted to do it. I'm out of practice and my airbrushes were giving me problems.
Cutting and cleaning indy links off the sprues now.

I am calling this one done, Soviet KV-7 Mod 1941. The kit did not come with decals seeing how this design never left the proving grounds.

Here are a coupe of final photos.
