Hi Charlie,

I have to admit... I enjoy - forgive me - crappy kits! They provide great opportunities to take some low risk chances in trying out new techniques. You've got the right idea; be bold, throw some paint around! You will undoubtedly learn something, and even if it is a total disaster you are only out seven bucks, right? I built the Lindberg Scharnhorst years ago, made a glorious mess of it - but I still had a great time, and learned a lot.

I am having a lot of fun!! I am gonna try some things with this one and it doesn't bother me much of it isn't perfect. This site has been a hug inspiration to get back into modeling again. Even with the limited time I have, I love it!!

And then you realize you have enlisted to a campaign and not even told the world what model you'll be finishing

For this campaign i will attempt to finish the Italeri S.L.C. 200 "Maiale". I started this kit a few years ago. Construction wasn't problematic, if i remember correct. The PE bits are fiddly, but doable. I primed the kit with Vallejo UK Bronze Green, the figures with (i assume) Vallejo Black primer. Then put the model in a box when moving town and have not opened it up since then.

These are the bits in the box:


And this is everything taken out:


Only 1 small piece of PE broken off. Not a bad result

Got a little work done this weekend.

Taped off the hull but didn't break out the AB yet.



Hand painted the deck. Let me tell ya, there are two ways I thought of doing this: Painted the whole piece deck color and hand painting the little bits, or the wrong way. Guess which way I chose.



Either way, progress!!!

Keeping this thread alive!

Got some AB done this weekend



Also painted some 53 Corvette pieces since I got the black out. You can see some in the background.

Touched up the deck and TRIED to hand paint some Tamiya. I would say at best, I got mixed results.

Then I had to make dinner and be a functioning adult for a little. Then I got some paint down real quick before bed time.



That Hull Red sure looks brown in the jar. Would like to add in a little bit more red on my next ship. and Hey!! Did my own boot line and it turned out ok!

Dry fit all together as of this morning



Now I need to seal it up and start the weathering so make it look half way decent.

Thanks for looking!

Deadlines are fine. At work. But i've come to the realization that deadlines and hobbies don't work for me. It ends up looking to much like work and that's not what i want. Above all i want hobbies to be fun.

With that realization i've decided to stop all groupbuilds, campaigns etc. that i've started. Of course i'll keep watching the often amazing builds i see coming along in the campaign threads, i'll just not participate anymore.

And since i consider it somewhat rude to just drop out without notice... well, there's this notice

@Gary: it is indeed a nice kit, fiddly PE, but quite doable. It's just the finished that i never get around to

Hey Goof, no worries - we're pretty casual around here! I know what you mean about deadlines; I'm not fond of them either. Just drop in when you feel like it, and have fun!

I really enjoyed the Do-24 you did for the Flying Boats Campaign over at Aeroscale, by the way!

Just a little less than 2 months to go. Of course, I haven't touched the Trafalgar since I stripped the paint off it.

It was a cheap model, but I got to try all sorts of things I have never done before.
