I have made some progress on my tank myself. The 1947 panzerwaffe flak tank. It is a 1/72 kit changed a bit to be used as a 1/48 kit. I think it works ok - especially for a what-if project.
Used the usual approach for me of mix of various colors that looked right.

More to follow

Jesper: That looks totally cool! Like a chain-smoker! Sweeeet. And thanks for the encouragement!

Happy Modeling,

Have to make DNF on this campaign. Sort of finished the kit, but not happy with the paint job (or mostly with my decision to leave fancy coloured plastic unpainted):



Learning experience anyway, I know better what to do next time. Thanks for the campaign, and nice models above.

Looks nice, Pasi. Congrats on finishing.

I also finished my 1947 flak tank.

Very cool six-barrel Flak AAA, Jesper! Very nice job!

If that was real, it would really bring down huge Allied bombers!

I wouldn't say no to an extension either.
Unfortunately haven't been able to get behind the workbench for at least a week. I'm hoping the Angel will be trouble free.

Your Flak tank is really cool Jesper. Be interested to know how something like that would work. Would they be 75mm guns in it?

Jesper: Super cool. Your Flakpanzer turned out great!

Pasi: congrats. Looks the part.

Lap Man: Nice progress. You got this!

I've finished my Warhammer Vindicator. At some point I'll drop in a tank commander, but not for now.







Happy Modeling,

Anybody that can help out with a ribbon design?

Alternatively I will try making one myself. Everybody will get their ribbons for sure. Not to worry

Thanks, I have made ribbons before, so I should be able to. However, my artistic skills might not be as high as other people.

I finally finished my entry for this campaign. I took a 1/35 Trumpeter JS-7 and modified it to be a prototype version rushed into combat trials during a hypothetical scenario that sees the Soviets taking Berlin in 1946-1947.

The first picture is a side by side comparison showing my JS7 next to one built out of the box - gives an idea of the details I removed to simplify the tank and 'back date' it.

The rest of the pictures show it finished. I wanted to work on impact marks and general battle damage and depicting an AFV that has seen some heavy fighting. There are several impact marks on the tank, but I assumed the heavy armor of the tank might have made it almost invulnerable to most things thrown at it. It was fun making so much damage on the tank.

Its great seeing everyone else's builds, and I look forward to the next iteration of this campaign - its become one of my favorites.

I finished the Phase Spider today. It's a "ready-to-paint" D&D figure that comes primed for painting.


I've never played D&D but I couldn't resist the figure when I saw it in a game shop. Great campaign. Thanks for taking it on.
Take care,
Don "Lakota"

Nice spider, Don. Nice "shiny" effect.

Looking good so far, EMan. Looking forward to see more

Thanks, Zon. I Am looking to do a quick runaround and start the next one soon.

However, I want to award ribbons first. Company IT removed my previous paint design program, so now I only have Microsoft paint. I am really not getting a design I am satisfied with. I will try my old computer.
Anyone with the skills to make a cool ribbon will be much appreciated if a cool ribbon is made.

Lap Man-Sweet model, congrats on finishing.
Jesper-Would you allow partially built kits from the Bandai campaign? Thanks for keeping these campaigns going.
Take care,
Don "Lakota"
