This here is the official thread. Unlike what I intended, this campaign is open to anything from all of KitMaker.

Also, Nito74 is listed as the campaign leader. This means I won't be the one handing out awards at the end of the campaign.

I need to figure out what to attempt to finish. I could try for the Merkava from last year's campaign or pick a kit more closer to finishing than that one.

I’m in with this project. It is Italeri’s 1/35 LVT4 that I am backdating to the early unarmored cab variant.

I'm in! It's either going to be a Kenworth K100 or a Kenworth W900. Decisions, decisions.

I just changed it Gary, just for Armorama, so Tanks, AFV, APC, Softskins.
No Ships, No Planes, No Helis.

Just Tracks and Wheels.

Well, I guess my unfinished walker is OK? More a tank than a plane for sure

I want to finish this one for the campaign:

My first build for this campaign is my old Tamiya M5A1 Stuart. I had finished airbrushing this when I went back to touch up some areas by hand. It looked pretty good until I took these picture. Click to see the full image.



I plan on airbrushing the whole thing and then painting the fiddly bits. I had painted them off the tank then added them on.

I'll start this year of with a Maquette T-34 Model 1941

This kit was started several years ago and got packed up again several times. The kit is a true multi-media kit with wire, a mesh and i think a small resin box The plastic used is in several shades of grey . Some parts are sold separately (tracks, turret, engine etc.) so this kit is really a sort of pre-Dragon modular approach with the basic T-34 sprue's getting combined with several update sprue's to make this particular 1941 model.

But honestly, it's not really a great kit with mediocre fit and detail. But it does look like a T-34

The tracks are single link which required a fair bit of cleanup. I replaced those with resin Masterclub tracks i bought from a fellow modeller.

And this is how far along it is now:


First job is to sort out how far along it actually is and then get glueing...

Moved the LVT to front of the line to accomplish a bit of work. Got the sponsons and suspension mounted on both sides.

Hmm. I have a feeling your old name is still active. I assume you've tried to logout and login under your new name to enlist?

I have a feeling if I award the ribbon that it will show under the old name.
