Jose,
Looking good! Does the kit have raised detail?

Yes, Bryan. It was precisely Angel's idea. Miniart have released great models with equipment. In addition, the Takom's crane (Takom 2108 oder Takom 2109) allows you to make a working one.
Very good work with color modulation and with the equipment of the crew compartment.
Good luck, Bryan!

Thanks Zon. I use .05 diameter styrene rod for most wiring. The slightly thicker and the thin stuff coming off the headphones is copper wire.
Kalin are you going to have the crane lifting the turret on the interior panther? I always thought that would be a cool dio.

Gaz, Marc, Zon and Peter, thanks for the nice comments.
Gaz, I have another Panther model with an interior plus a crane. Оne friend of mine, Angel Yovtshev, gave me the idea to make place for repair of damaged machines, where the elements of the Panther will be visible. So that ...
Zon, I use metallizers "Mr.Metal Color" on GSI Creos and I am very pleased with them.

Good luck to all.

Kalin,
That is a fantastic interior! Seems a shame to close it up.

Thank you for sharing it with us!

Great Work Stefan and Jose!!

Bryan: Nice interior. What did you use for the wiring?

Kalin: brilliant interior! What colors did you use for the ammunition? I've only found a bright brass, but it's too shiny.

Happy Modeling,
Zon

A lot of good builds in this campaign. Looks like all are enjoying it.
I don’t see me building an interior kit anytime soon after seeing Kalin’s work And Colin’s cut away thread. I would shelve it.
Carry on

Hello everyone!
After more than a month I can boast of my work progress. I close the hull and follow the turret of the tank.
Here are some photos.












So much of me. Good luck to all.

Stefan, that camo is spot on. You really have an eye for it. Did you use some technique like masking, or how did you do it?

Another update on the Wespe. I am close to finished with the interior. As usual I may have gone a little "chipping happy" but its all good. Will start on the exterior soon. Here are some pics.
The vehicle I will be modeling:








Keep up the great work everyone!!

Gentlemen! I'm calling this one done. THanks for the Kind comments and the great Campaign!











It was a simple, yet fun to build kit. I still think the side skirts are too thick. Except for Friuls, this one is OOB.

Cheers!

I finally realized I won't be able to complete the Humber armored car by the campaign deadline due to some detours so I found a kit I'm pretty sure I can.

Unfortunately I have to surrender to the no longer deniable that I won't finish the Humber armored car by the campaign deadline due to some detours. Luckily I found a kit that's much less of a build that I should be able to finish.

Peter,

Thanks for your adv., but I prefer to wait an inyected model kit of the M5..... and please an AA Oerlikon 20mm too!!!!!

Gaz:

I agree with you. Italeri its the only manufacturer of the SM 81 and 82. I still waiting for anothers twin engine of the Italian Air Force.

Jose,
Glad to see the quick start on your Marsupiale. Unfortunately, there are many things made by Italeri that nobody else has tried. Si, it's always nice if we can add little things to the exterior.

I still waiting for an M5.



You and a zillion other people around the world Jose. #D in scale do a conversion set you can get from Shapeways, but at 2-3 times the price of the host Dragon kit, that is an investment!

Nice start on the 82. Italeri may not be super detailed and sometimes fit is an issue, but some very fine models can be made from them. I'm sure this will be one of them.
