Yes, that's finished entry, Robert!

If you feel like, you can add some dust(then it will be a finished entry with some dust on it ).
Congratulations for crossing the finish line!

Don't forget to upload some pictures to Campaign Gallery:

Looking good Robert. I'd go with the shields as you say, will help with the tracks.

Sure I will!




oh so close.... so an early start on Good Friday and got more done than I expected before church.... wheels & tracks now on (tracks rusted, rust on spare tacks and little around the body) with cotton buds holding the upper track on the return rollers while little touches of glue dry (have noticed some links not 100% aligned unfortunately)... general dusting tomorrow I think...



only one question remains and that is if I put the side skirts on or not... will see before dusting (I think they hide a few messes around the lower hull

Looking very, very good, Robert!

Finished entry should be painted, while weathering is optional.So I think yours is almost finished!
You just need a small final push, mate!

I'll be very happy to award you the ribbon




if I can get the wheels finished tomorrow along with more detail (rusty tracks & exhausts, work on tracks (still too uniform colour)) then the rest Saturday afternoon I should be good... I reckon any personal weathering I want to do can be done as a side project....



tyres painted... need to finish detail painting and a little dust and she's done.... watch this space

Still don't think I will get the TAS 44-M finished in time (if I just do detail painting and no oil filter i "might").... but so you can see how it is close to the end of the campaign:

Matt coat on, detail painting started.... don't think I will do oil streaking this time around but happy for you all to try to persuade me:

Thanks Kalin

I just noticed I didn't touch up some of the black on the tripod legs. Masking tape curled up and let some paint run.

Please accept my sincere thanks for allowing the community to follow the build of your great WHIF vehicle!
I hope to see you again- sometime in the future - in a possible sequel.




it was an interesting campaign and I really should've restarted got back modelling sooner in the year, unfortunately that was not to be.. I will be back (and if there is a 2nd scratch build campaign give me a shout)...

Extension granted.

I don't suppose I could ask for just a little more time for this campaign? Say like one more week?

In the US our income tax deadline is April 15 and that has been a conflict for me in completing my project!



Will another week(till April 22nd) be enough for you, Mike?
Can't promise, but it won't hurt me asking John.
