Well done on finishing Mark and Joe!

Looks like it's time to wrap this one up. Congratulations to those who finished and, to those who didn't, there's always Hangar Queen 9!

I'll be awarding ribbons later today so if you don't get one and think you should, let me know.

Hopefully I'll see you all in March for the Eastern Front campaign!

Stephen, thanks a lot for your thumb up!


Joe, really glad to see you finally made it after Michael's offer for a day more!
Sorry for the wheel but anyhow it's beautifully done with a fresh and neat look. Great job!

Now Mark, one more for the gallery!
Pretty well done on this last-minute build.

Congrats guys, you really speeded up.

With 1/2 hour to local midnight, I'm declaring victory and going home!




Thanks guys, it was a great campaign, mostly marred by fat fingers and lousy decals.

Thanks for understanding guys.
I think next year I'm going to concentrate on getting some half finished projects on the desk completed. Then make a start on some of the kits I bought this year. Got a few 1/35 WW1 tanks and figures I'm excited to start work on for starters.

Chaz, your Tilly looks fantastic in the Malta camouflage. Might have to try that myself someday.

Thomas, the Thunderbolt is really cool. Nice work on the finish.

I'm happy to call another campaign done and finished

Before I'll end up my build log with the final pics, here's a short overview.

Michael, thanks a lot for hosting this great campaign and congrats to all who crossing the line. Was a pleasure and fun!

I'm not going to be able to make it. Today has been a complete write off as far as any modelling goes. Another 3+ hour trip to do Christmas shopping. So that was my plan scuppered.

I'll post pics as and when I finish, but I am thinking of quitting any campaign builds next year. I seem to get very little time these days to work on anything and rarely complete a campaign.

Been fun to take part and see so many cool subjects.

Paul, very nice looking Lee with it's pretty deserted look! The result is great and much more than basic!

Mark, hope you'll bring it together right in time - a day left..

As for my Jug - I took the final pics today and recently uploaded, yet not viewed. Give me some minutes to edit them for the network.

See you later, Th mas

Franc-I love that Apache! The one in my stash was never going to be built so I sold it on eBay. It's nice to see one finished, congratulations on your build.
Take care,
Don "Lakota"

Fantastic builds everyone.

Hoping to do the final assembly on the Kelly tomorrow and mount her to the base.
This week has just been so busy I haven't had five minutes at the work desk. This time of year I suppose.

Almost ready to wind this one up. Therefore, it's time to launch the campaign I think many of you have been waiting for: The Eastern Front! It will run from 1 March through 1 September, 2019 and will include everything from Finland to the Balkans. The Enlisting thread is here, to sign up, go here. Should be a good one!

Well dang Michael I can't get anything past you! No they're for a comission build of a 1/32 Panavia Tornado I'm doing for a really nice guy up in Auckland.

Mark great work on the P-36A I know you can make it I have faith in your abilities!

Franck fanatastic result I really like what you've done with your Apache.

Thomas it's really quite a little stunner isn't it? Outstanding perseverance aginst mounting odds and I like the result so far.

While your M3 might have it's issues Paul it sure looks the part and I love how dusty it is! Something I'm still getting the hang of with the odd AFV I do.

Close to the finish line, slim chance of making it. But it's not for a lack of trying.

I got the M3 Lee done last week in the markings of a tank from Tunisia in March of 1943. I had some successes with the build such as the Krylon paint and a failure also in my mud daub camo that ended up looking like water spots. I hid the damage in the end and will have to try again with another technique on a future build.

I was fortunate to have a great reference book with plenty of Kodachrome pictures of M3s in stateside training with plenty of dust. While the color was wrong for North Africa, they were great for getting the dust patterns. I used a very small damp Q-Tip to daub off the dust in places where boots & uniforms of the crew would have wiped it off trying to make the model look like the pictures.

My skills are basic and I try new things to make the model look better each time.

Thanks for a great campaign and I look forward to a trip to the Eastern Front.

Great work, Chris and Franck!
Congrats for getting the finish line with those very nice looking builds. Another pretty addition for the gallery.


Hope I can post a final pic too, as I'm very close...
