Alright everyone,
I've awarded ribbons to those that have completed so far. I think there is still 36 hours to go for any last minute crushing.

I'll be in hospital overnight having a minor surgery, so you won't hear from me until sometime tomorrow.

Until then,

Happy Building!

Now... Do you have a 1/35 scale Anzio Annie in your stash?

Gaz



No Anzio Annie hiding in the stash, I wish, but I have a few that will fit the bill of the Italy/Sicily time frame. Will post on the thread.

Thanks for the kind words Bryan.

Ken the dio really adds to the overall impression. You did a great job on this one. I enjoyed watching this one - and the sand bags evolve

Thank's Zon, hope I will see pictures of that GP finished. I finished mine just before I started work on Sd. Kfz. 8.
Some great looking models throughout this campaign, I have to say that I am sorry that it's coming to an and...
Gaz, you have been a great host and I am really sorry that I can't follow you to Italy. There is lot of fighting left for me in North Africa... If, by any chance, you include Tunisia in that campaign, I am all in.
Greetings to everyone

Ken, the diorama is very cool. Interesting high point of ground, landscaping, and Italian troops. To everyone, this campaign has stayed interesting and really heated up as the end approaches.

Thanks Gaz. Glad you like it and also that you did 'suggest' I build it. It was worth it.

Now we need to cook up a new 'campaign' based group build, as this one was so much fun to be part of.

Some great work done while I was away. Too much to call out individually, but excellent builds one and all.

The Diana is not totally complete, I have accessories to add, but for the sake of the GB and deadline, I am calling it here.

Added Magic Sculpt covers to the headlights as the kit ones have the slit openings which are not on any photo of the Diana I have. Did this as No. 4, as everyone does 7 or 8, and I do have a photo of 4.

Gaz: I'm really liking your second entry. Nice damage.

Bogicevic: Great work. Nicely beat up.

Richard: Good job. What colors did you use?

Nathan: Looks Sweet!!

I feel like I'm in a total slug-fest, inching toward the finish. Just did not have a good time getting paint on this thing, but I press on. Next will be washes, then hopefully an inordinate amount of chipping. The deadline is the midnight, the 21st, local time, right?









Happy Modeling,
Zon
