Jager looks great Gaz, Fantastic job. Thanks for joining in mate. Been a pleasure seeing you build this one.

The line up is great too, although they all lean to one side



Peter,
Thank you! I use a tripod to hold the camera steady. It has a bubble level. However, the Canon camera doesn't... so, all of my pics lean a bit.

Looks great Gary.

Getting closer to the paint barn. This will be a 3 footer/1 meter build for sure.


Just not happy with the plastic and my results to this point, not planning for the SOD but it would be easy to park this pig there.

Yeah. I realised that, I was just joking...


Keep at it Ryan. Don't let it beat you!

Hello again,
The cab is almost ready. I tried to scratch build the handles of the doors, and decided to not use the machine gun. The model is really a putty eater...

Ah putty - the hallmark of Revell kits!

My own MENG Leo 1A3 build now has a natty three-tone camo scheme (sorry no pics), so it's time for decals, detail paint, weathering, and final assembly! Should make the deadline for sure...

Dear modellers,
the chassis is almost done.






I did some scratch here too, and a lot of filling and sanding. Almost every part was full of flesh, a lot of parts that not fitted together. Fun.

Good to hear you have some progress Tom. I Have just laid down decals on the PZH 2000. One I've hit it with top coat, I will posy pics. I have also started painting the two crew figures.

Great job on the Marder, Nigel. I like the weathering.

I am getting ready to jump in on this one. I am going to go with the Jaguar I raketen jagdpanzer. A reasonably simple build, so more progress soon. 🙂

It only took 3-4 hours to build the complete jagdpanzer. It is a very well engineered kit. However, it still has a number of sink marks still to be filled.

More to follow

Hello dear modellers,
some improvement of the back side of the truck. I sanded the molded ropes and the places for the rope. And drilled the holes.





And tomorrow will add the new ropes too.
Enjoy

It is the little details like this Martin, that can really make a difference to the end result.


Quick couple of progress pics of my own. Decals down and Flat coat done. The turret is just sitting on the hull in the pics. The rear bustle actually scrapes on a box like structure and the tow cable heads when it is inside, so rather than risk damage I'll leave the final insert and twist until it is completely done.


Onto the 'clear' parts then weathering. Plus I need to finish the two figures:

Hello friends. I would like to take part in this competition with a PzH2000. Here are two pictures of the current state.

Some more nice entries.
I don't understand how Meng messed the cable hooks on the PzH 2000. However this is a great model.

Thanks Guys. Yes Olivier, there are a few odd things, but it is a great kit overall.

Welcome aboard Viktor. Looking forward to your take on the beast. I have never seen that pouch before, was this a special edition kit with it included?

This is a tool bag from MENG. Was not included in the kit.
