Just a small update here. The tires are attached to the chassis. I know about the lines on the tires and tried to fix it, but the rubber is so soft.. I will try something addition to cover them.

Bill: Thanks for the kind words. Your Missile Jet War Launcher looks good, especially the driver poking his head out. Part of me really wants you to paint it just how it is, in the same radiation green, with the white rivets and maybe white highlights on the fenders, like a parade vehicle. Anyway, I'm sure it will look fantastic when you are done.

Martin: nice work on the weathering. Looks great.

Chris and Scott: Welcome aboard!

Happy Modeling,
Zon

I was digging through the stash and this fell out. ACE models TOS 1 in 1/72. Not normally my scale but I thought I might join in the fun.

That, my friends, is how you turn a dog of a kit into a work of art! Fantastic work, William.




Yes, it proves you can make a silk purse out of a sow's ear. Very nice detailing work Bill.

Update on my BM-8-24.

After doing some research, I rebuilt the traverse and elevation mechanisms. Also rebuilt the travel lock.

I also added rocket ignition wires to the launcher.

Added upper hull details. These include headlights, driver's hatch, and relocated the exhaust pipe.

Rear hull details added. These include tow hook, step fender, and access ports.

Last hull detail added. This was the commander's cupola. The tank tools are the last items to be added.

That's it for now. Thanks for viewing.
Bill

Looking good! I'm thinking I might do the Volkswagen Launcher:



After I do the M9 ACE or M1 ABV for the Once More Unto the Breach campaign...

Richard and Pete: Thanks for the kind words. Pete, I'm also curious as to how they hold up. I've already added a bit of CA to some of the smaller edges that didn't seem to lay down all the way.

Happy Modeling,

Nice little duo Richard. The grey roof is a real contrast to the digital camo!


Coming along nicely Zon. Interested to see how the decal zim holds up to painting and weathering.

Aloha and Happy New Year!
Some progress on the Sturmtiger. Applied all of the Zimmerit decals except for the glacis plate, which requires me to cement the upper and lower halves, as the decal overlaps the top of the lower hull. Otherwise, I've installed the fenders and primed the lower hull so i could complete the tracks. Painting the wheels will be next I think. Sorry for the dark photos.





Happy Modeling,
Zon

William (panzerman1),
It's a surprise thing with the scene of the interior.

Happy New Year to all.

Thanks Zon!

I was able to get it finished earlier today. Like I said, it's a parade vehicle so I didn't do any real weathering.

Here are the pictures I've submitted to the campaign gallery.





I may do a another one just for giggles later. I've got the Revell-Germany MAN 5T Mil GL truck I'm doing in the Logistics campaign and either the M9 ACE or the M1 ABV for Once More Unto the Breach, the combat engineer campaign.

I also just bought the Trumpy SA-4 Ganef kit from Squadron a couple hours ago!

Bill: Looks awesome. Great idea for the interior, and well done.

Richard: I can see that driving through Tiananmen Square now.

Keep up the good work! I need to get back on track.

Happy Modeling,
Zon

Looking good, Richard!

Bill, Very imaginative solution on the interior. Should look great, without have to scratch and entire interior.
