Wow, what a finish! Looks like there are 21 completes in the Gallery, out of 35 starts. I don't think most campaigns get a 60% completion rate. Great work folks! Nice job running this mone Michael.



Mark, You are right. I just looked back all the models built in this campaign. It looks really great. Congratulation to all participants!

Michael, thank´s a lot for leading this campaign.

And that wraps up the PTO campaign. Congrats to all who finished and thank you to all who participated! Ribbons have been awarded, so if you didn't get one and think you should have, let me know.

Now, on to the Mediterranean!

Okay, pics in gallery. I am going to redo post my initial pic as I can't recall if the original was on Photobucket or not. I almost crashed at the finish line when my dull coat started wrinkling my paint and decals. It messed up the aluminum underside but it looks like stressed metal now, so I'm not messing with it too much. Model is pretty much OOB; don't believe I added a thing. Have the pilot but his head is not done yet. Plane is not weathered yet, as I am pondering how to work around the evil dull coat. This campaign AND grad school was a tough combo.

The starting point:

Was going to upload pics by end of day (it's 3:16 PM EDT where I am) but have encountered the weird bug where you can't see the campaign gallery on the end day.

Anyone know a workaround? I am just waiting for my dull coat to dry so I can take photos.



I'm on my phone and don't have access to my computer to post the link. Try going back to the very first post in this campaign thread on page 1. There's a link to the gallery there. HTH!

And here's the direct link to the gallery.

Gallery is fussy on it's best days. My first upload failed today. Then I realized that the pics were TOO big, running around 4Mb. Shrank them down then they went in just fine around noon PST. Good luck with the battle.

Here are the finished Photos of the Japanese 75mm SP Gun.
I am late in getting the photos to the forum. It was at a contest (a Friend took them for me) and I just got it back.






Great Campaign - a lot of great models.

Peter, good job on the P-38. I could not make out the nose art, what was the pilot of this a/c?

Bob



Hi Bob, thanks, and the airplane is from
80th FS, 8th FG (Lt. Allen Hill), 1944. You can check the nose art better in the gallery.

Well there was a slim chance that I could get this finished before the deadline. Then I saw that I missed a float

@Mike - Very good, your Ki-84

I've just posted my final pictures of my Lightning in the gallery and say thanks for another entertaining campaign!
If there are some mates struggling for the finish line, good luck
