More work on the upper hull. This time I'm dry fitting the upper rear hull plate. I'll probably finish up replicating the weld line in the first before returning to complete attaching the rear upper hull plate.

A little more progress on the KV-II. Just started the upper hull and found a few very small gaps on either side where the sides joint the front plate, so we had to do a little plaster session. n Then I had to reduce a lip on the vertical plate on the left side using a little strip of sheet plastic. I'll need to replicate some of the weld seams on the front glacis plate.

The artillery is looking good. Can't wait to see this completed.

Way to go.

Progress with the hull. First time for me to build a modern artillery piece. It's freaking huge. The fit is pretty sketchy though. Had to unglue several parts and repair the damage because of alignment issues (some caused by my own carelessness) - definitely not a shake and bake kit.

Wow, this is a big beast.
It's probably bigger than the prime mover.
Very good model.
I like!

Angel, your ATS looks fantastic. Nice addition with the artillery piece.
Chuck, good start on the KV. It's a coin flip, but I like to paint and build as I go on a kit.

Good luck everyone on their projects. Bill

Little more progress on that KV II. Detail throughout the lower half is great. Now I'm torn as to whether to paint the lower hull now, then add the link and length tracks or add the tracks last.



Pretty neat to see various modelers subjects and progress.

Cheers!

chuck

Hi, Bill!
The cannon looks great. Congratulations.
As for the artillery prime mover, the engine covers on the sides will be open.
Good luck!

Mark, thanks for the nice comment. Having built several other Pak 40s, this one is nicely detailed, and assembly was error free.

Update on my Marder I.

Interior paintwork and driver are done. 75mm gun and trunion mount are finished. Inner gun shield is also complete. Having a blast on this kit. Happy modeling everyone. Bill
Full Disclosure: There are a lot of sink marks on the gun shield that needed sanding out. Ouch!!!

Kalin, great job on the halftrack. Too bad all that nice detail gets covered up. Happy modeling. Bill

Kalin,

Off to a great start. The assembly look great so far and the paint work looks very nice and smooth.

Hello guys!
Happy New Year! I wish you health, luck and many successes.
Bill, what you do with the model is very good.With the shape of the driver and the interior you give him a completely different vision.

And that's my progress with the project.









Cheers all for the New Year.

Thanks Jerry!A jig for folding the PE protectors comes with the kit-without it the task would have been almost impossible.
I've managed to paint the ATS-712 last year and will post pictures tomorrow evening when I get home.
Oh, and I intend to build the AA Gun(KS-19M2) also within this Campaign.

Angel, your AT-S looks great, especially the headlight guards must have been pretty painstaking work. Looking forward to seeing it painted.

John, solid start on your T-10.

Happy New Year, everybody!
