Slowly moving to the finish.
I have loaded it up to get an idea of what it will look like so here is an almost there pic.

Still needs a clear coat for the decals and then I will figure out how to weather it for Vietnam conditions. The Skyhawks on the ground there looked fairly grubby.

cheers

John,
If final date always August 31st, 2017 it should be OK for me.

A little aftermarket: wheels and antennas



Some bolts need to be cut and glued while another bolts are already molded on the vehicle.





Trumpeter do not give cable for the winch. I add one.


A front part of the vehicle with probably the engine ventilation. I have glued a piece of black paper on the back of the part to hide the void.





A first view with the camouflage applied. Trumpeter instructions are wrong about the scheme. I've found pics on the net and in magazines to correct it.

i have been working again on the BMP and have installed the metal masterclub tracks which i pre-painted as well as adding the side skirts.

I still need to start the weathering process, numerous washes etc but you will get the general idea from the picture below.

Ah well, stupid photobucket won't let us post links... then it's time to change!

Here are the previous pictures and newer ones (at the end) with the fade and decals done.













Cheers and thanks for looking.

Well, A big update, construction is done. I redid the turret footman's loops as I was not happy with the one I did initially.

























Comments are welcomed,

Progress on my build has been slow but in the last few days I managed to get it painted.

It's being delivered to the Marine Corps so I have to get a clear coat on then the decals. Also needs a load out so still a fair way to go.

cheers

I finally finished the KV-220. I wanted to depict it right after the Germans captured it during the fighting near Leningrad in the winter of 41.

Some close ups of the details. This was my first time adding snow to a tank.

I was supposed to post this a few days ago, but somehow I forgot.. Anyway, I'm gonna build Trumpy's E-25 which I'm also building for the yearly contest of my local club. That's double the pressure to finish a kit for once!

Dated entry pic as required.
