Ive signed up for this campaign as have two kits I want to get finished before the end of this year and as I have finally got my model building enthusiasm back thought it would be a good idea to get some half done kits finished before starting anymore.

Kit 1 will be Tamiya's 1/48 Gekko which was an entry for the Nightfighters campaign a year or so ago but I gave up with modelling so it got put onto a top shelf to gather dust.

Kit 2 will be a 1/32 Hobbyboss Spitfire which was started for the Looney Toons campaign but it suffered the same fate as the Gekko.

Hopefully these 2 kits will finally be finished this year

I have Connie almost fully dressed now. Time for props and wheels to finish her off

While we all know it isn't terribly realistic, there is something about a modern jet with a full "Hasegawa, Two Bobs, Microscale" level stencil load.

And I am still not done. Apparently there is very little surface you ARE allowed to step on or push on atop these birds.

Hi everybody,

here is something I wanted to do for the Smurf-campaign when I got sick and everything stopped for quiet a while. Last month I re-awakened her and now I'm nearly done. She's a F-86F-30-NA Sabre in 1-144 scale and nearly finished.

@Jessica--

And for Keith

--Thanks Jess! For this old aircraft hydraulics troop it's nice to see the oft forget and frequently ignored landing gear.

The whole kit and finish came out great and the Connie is looking like it's following in its footsteps.

I'm hoping to start back up on the 1/32 F-16A after returning from a quick vacation. Looking forward to seeing more work from everyone.

The 787 is nice Jessie, but the Connie is even nicerer

Mike, is that the Hasegawa E that's really a D with different decals? Although if its hung from the ceiling it will take a super-spotter to know the difference

Latest and not greatest off the shelf of shame..
cruddy ancient Hasegawa F15E with the abysmal foreward fuselage to main body joint.
Oh well, building wheels up for the classroom ceiling so the grey is sprayed and the gloss is curing. Next washes into those fine Hasegawa panel lines and 847 decals.

Nice, you might get me to try an airliner sooner rather than later.

Okay, calling this one done




And for Keith


Moving on to Connie, I've got her basic paint done


Then a bit of basic black

And the first pass at the decals, still very wet here

Really, a beautiful job on that 787, Jessica. As expected.

I'd rather fly Cessna 150 Airways than get on with that carrier, but, they do have pretty airplanes. Your model does them justice when they can't garner any for themselves.

Speaking of Then and Now...


I need to glue on the main gear doors and make certain that the engines aren't going to drop off the wings and then it'll be done

Someone has designed a campaign ribbon (same format as before, just with the III changed to IV), it just needs uploading.

I noticed there is no campaign ribbon. My proposal is for a new design, a phoenix rising from ashes.

Wow, never realised how much the Skyraider looks like a Hellcat from that angle!

Hi people,

I'll put some better ones into the gallery.
Hope you enjoy it and have fun

Howdy Y'all
I will hopefully finish my Monogram F-5E this weekend. I need to get it done for our club's "Japan" contest this coming Friday. The bad news-NO CAMERA in the house! My family went on a trip and took the cameras. I'll post the finished model when they come back.
@Robbie-how do you like those Sword kits? I've never built one but some of them are interesting subjects like the ones you've chosen.
Take care,
Don "Lakota"

Just a reminder here, but there's still no ribbon loaded for this campaign. Always a good idea to have a flashy ribbon, it can drive enlistment!

Michael



Hi Michael, I know a ribbon has been created, is it my job as campaign leader to upload it?

163 is in the gallery.



Hi Mike, its not showing up - campaign gallery is empty.
