Clayton, no worries at all, you had much more important things to worry about, my sincerest condolences for your loss.

Hi everyone,

It has been over a month since the end of the Battle Damage Campaign, and for those of you who were wondering why there has been no wrap-up and awards haven’t been given yet, I received the following note from Clayton:

Hello Tim,
Unfortunately I was rushed to the ER Jan. 20 with a collapsed lung, staying for 2 weeks, when my wife became very ill and died Feb.18, I'll get back in the swing of things ASAP, I do appreciate your asking.
Thanks, Clayton

Nice work in this campaign,

My entry from the stash is the old Italeri Hetzer


Easy build straight out of the box, i did some changes but not much





Painting, spray paint base color (Tamiya) and burnt metal (Life color) camo hand-painted (Vallejo) then washes and added colors with oil paints








I wanted to do the Hetzer with full foliage coverage however i had some problems with it so for now decided that this is it as such,..





Thanks for the fun

Tim, great work. Shows old kits still bring enjoyment and can be built into a fine looking model. Cheers



Thanks, Peter. I figured after spending the past 50 plus years in a cellophane-sealed box, it was high time for this old girl to see the light of day!

So here's the unlucky (but finished) MiG-21, in all its battered glory:





Even shot up, the MiG 21 was a beautiful aircraft!

Very impressive Shawn. Love the overall effect and story with the figures.

Matthew, what can I say. That painting finish is superb. It will be a real shame to close it up as Tim has said.

With basic construction of the MiG finished, all that remained was to attach the PVD air data boom in front of the nose and the blade antenna on the spine.

The kit came with a molded boom, but it was thick and out of round; I made a new one from 1mm and .6mm telescoping brass tubes. The blade was rescued from the spare fuselage part.

Thanks for the kind words guys, this hasn’t been a really fun campaign.

Matthew that interior looks perfect! Can’t wait to see more on this.

Matthew,

That interior looks really good - it will be a shame to button it up!

Love the KV and the Mig 21. Both looking very nice...

Great that there is an extension for this campaign. Is it until 31 Jan?

I may just get my GAZ society car finished. I have not been lazy; I’ve painted and weathered the interior. Now I just need to mask the windows inside and out, paint em, and get this thing buttoned up. Oh, and drop a large piece of debris on the roof (the battle damage)!

Here are a few pics…







Cheers

Matthew

Shawn,

Your little diorama has lived up to its early promise - absolutely stunning work! I learned a lot, thanks for posting it.

Shawn,

Your little diorama looks fantastic so far! I can almost hear the banter of the men reminiscing how they killed the giant!

Tim,

The decals look perfect! Your Mig is coming along very nicely.

I have been busy this week painting the 3 figures, and last night I Finally worked on the base. Ive been working on weathering the soldiers today as I wait for the plaster on the base to cure all the way.

I couldn’t decide which of the two pilot figures provided in the kit to use, so I painted them both up and test fit each of them in the cockpit.

The first one looked ok, but he seemed too calm given the massive damage to his aircraft, so I went with the one who is about to punch out.
