Update on my MB model JS2M. Got the hull finished and added the PE. I have never worked with so much PE and it was quite a challenge for me, but I think it came thru pretty good.



The Turret was pretty easy, but the instructions don't give you any advice on the grab handles size or placement, so I just used the ol' MK1 Eyeball and winged it.



and here is everything put together. Now to start the painting process.



Here are the tracks. I used the tracks from Tamiya's JS2 as they were easier to work with than the metal ones in the kit. Had to add a spacer to the sprockets as the Tamiya tracks were just a little wider than the kit tracks.

Nice progress Jesse, I finished my first brass fender set recently, I must have snapped them off half a dozen times when the model was finally done, I feel your pain. I think it will go better for me next time.

Hi Jesse,
this looks like a Frankenstein build
Good job with the PE. This is the kind I hate to do.

Hi all,
I finally get some time to start the painting of my T-80. The camo is a bit weird as it was applied for arms exhibition in Russia.
There is still a bit of work to do. Some olive patches are not correct and I need to fix some over spraying on the yellow here and there.

Looking good Jesse

Olivier - Caterpillar yellow and OD. Did they look to hide this in an Earthmoving parking yard???

That is one striking colour scheme alright

Thanks John. The weathering on the wheels appears brighter in the photos than in real life. Gotta learn how to use my camer better.

Hi all. Seen some nice progress over the last weeks. Life and work was pretty busy, but I made a start with the Holt Gun Tractor.
Lots of cleaning to do with this kit. Far from what I expected. I did a random build and started with all kinds of sub-assemblies. Tracks, chassis, wheels, etc. Thing that caught my attention at first was the nice moulded engine. Great detail. On the other hand, very fragile pieces. Speaking of pushrods, levers and springs. This will be replaced with some scratch work from messing tubes and styrene, except for the springs. Not attached yet and I'm thinking to make them of very thin lead wire.
I think it is a good kit, but a lot work to do with measuring, dry fitting.

Pictures...

















Added some detail with bolts and nuts as well. Most of the other styrene will be replaced by messing tube as well. Also think to leave the roof off, will see. A real challenge for further detailing it is, for sure.

Kind regards.

Impressive detailing on the engine Robert

I took some time to finish the basic paint on my T-80. A coat of gloss varnish has been sprayed before I start the various pinwashes.













There will be no markings. The weathering will be minimal as this tank was displayed at a static exhibition.

Well, after some shuffling around, losing the instructions for the my first attempt, I should have more time now, and am changing subjects.

I call this campaign complete, for me at least









Hope you like it. I just insisted a bit more on the drybrushing to highlight the details of the OD areas.

I got my first resin anything kit yesterday from Lots Of Models.

It is the U.S. soldier figure by itself with gear. Could this be used as itself? https://lots-of-models.com/collections/live-resin/products/live-resin-1-35-us-army-soldier-with-ach-mich-helmet-3-resin-kit-lrm35003?variant=15918742851

Totally understand if not.

I'll join the campaign:
A PlusModel resin kit(Opel 4x4 Chassis #156) is underway to my door.
I will use it to convert an Italeri Opel Blitz Typ S kit(#216) into a four-wheel-drive Opel Blitz 3,6-6700 Typ A in service with Royal Bulgarian Army in 1945:


I have no experience with resin, but I'm eager to find out does it work for me.
