Angel, the artillery tractor build looks magnificent. Love the addition of the canvas framework. I agree, don't hide too much of the interior detailing. Happy modeling. Bill

A very good job, Pro.
The front would not be mobile?
You get to sew a canvas.
Кnowing you, you will not be surprised if you do.
:D

Your work continues to amaze Angel. The build just gets better each time.

Merry Christmas and a safe and prosperous New Year to you and your family too.

Shalta,Shawn,William, welcome aboard!

Continuing with my Pavesi P4/100 30A build- I decided to add roof framing and canvas to both carts.

Canvas won't be closed as I am not willing to hide interior details, but "lifted" on the sides.Sort of hot-sunny-weather-layout.

Roof framing progress:

I am using the brackets and cutouts for the struts-where I can

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you and your beloved ones!

Out of curiousity, would Asuka's M4A3E8 Thunderbolt VII be fine for this campaign?
The add-on armor + extra MG mount are all resin (Its hard to find a review that says it, though.), so with the "just a plow = no" it sounds like a no, but the extra armor is pretty visible IMO.

Link to scalemates' page for the kit: https://www.scalemates.com/kits/1021773-asuka-model-35-040-easy-eight

I won't be particularly upset if it's a no, as my time to build is VERY bad right now, and I'm not sure if I want to risk messing up the kit right yet, so I'm not even sure I'd be able to get it done for the campaign, but it's worth asking.

I'm joining this fun campaign with this obscure resin kit. It's a 1/76th Sturmgeschutz IV with zimmerit. The maker of the kit is Vac-U-Cast.

I'm also using a white metal set from SHQ of Panzer crewmen.

The kit has few resin parts and 2 white metal parts. Luckily the Stug hull has fairly deep apertures in which I'll add the crewmen.
Thanks for viewing. Happy modeling. Bill

Shawn, the E-75 is a very interesting conversion. Following this build with curiosity.
Angel, your artillery tractor is an amazing build. Love those meticulously detailed wheels.
Wishing continued success to all participants.

Peter-thanks for the advice!
No problem with shop assistant's funny look when buying stockings-from time to time I buy for my (lazy) girls things that are more embarrassing

Gold?Well I could say this kit is worth gold and it will be true in more than one meaning.But what you see is a combination of wrong lighting and lousy photographer(that's me).

Kalin-I wish I could take and post a new picture of the black primed Pavesi, but I can't.It is green now:

Yovchev, did you not become a goldsmith? ... Now seriously.Is that a primer? And why is it with such a golden tinge? Was not it black? Success in completing the model. I'm waiting for the final product.

Welcome aboard Richard.

Interesting vehicle Shawn. Looks like some nice crisp castings. Love the green 'zim'

Angel, the pic looks more gold than black, and certainly no ugly duckling.

Tip for cleaning models. Use a bucket to clean in, then strain the water through a funnel with a stocking attached around it. It will trap any loosened parts.

If the shop assistant gives you a funny look when you buy the stockings, tell them you are buying them for your mother or grandmother...

I wrapped up my build the other day for the Battle Damage Campaign and finally started on my Jagd E-75. The base for this build is the Trumpeter Flak E-75 with the following Paper Panzer Production parts:

GT-103 Gas Turbine (includes rear hull part and the engine deck)
E-75 Wheel Set
Conversion for using Lowe tracks with E-75
and of course the Jagd E-50/E-75 Eber conversion kit.

I also have the 1946 Panzer Crew and the Panther Mystery brackets that im considering using instead of the fenders.

After all these resin parts are added, there isn't a whole lot of the original kit left aside the suspension and hull tub.

Clayton,Peter,Jesper,John-thanks for your kind words!
As advised by a friend of mine-I gave the Pavesi a thorough liquid soap bath,rinsed it and let it dry for almost 24 hours.
Side effects
-I lost the towing hook to the sewage pipe ,will adapt one from my spares...
-the wheel rods developed natural rust
I primed the tractor with Mr.Surfacer 1500 Black,diluted 1:1 with Mr.Color Thinner.
Now I have a black Ugly Duckling:

Construction finished:







Carts and wheels still not glued together- intend to prime and paint them first.Some small parts will also be added once painted.
I replaced the resin radiator protector-I sucked at removing it from the "sprue"- with soldered one, scratched from copper sheet.Some rivets were also added.
Very enjoyable build sofar!

Wheels look complicated, but are not difficult to build-once you finish the first one



Yeah right, you go on believing that Angel. The rest of us will just sit here and look on in awe.....

A wheel assembly jig comes with the kit.

I've switched over to conveyer building the wheels:


Wheels look very nice when built and mounted on the vehicle

Gotta question either your sanity for building it or mine for loving it!
