I was looking at the list and still have the P-3C and RF-4 to complete but got 4 of them out of the way.

I have 2 A-10s and 2 F-4Bs to add to the list.

Thanks MC. It is probably my favorite US WWII tank build yet. Everything came out just right.

Besides the Tamiya Meteor, I was up for completing the Zvezda (ex-Dragon) T-72B with ERA. I had totally forgotten it was entered here, and finished it last year, with Tamiya tracks in place of the unusable L&Ls. Here she is:

Cheers, thanks for looking, sorry about the wait!

I thought this GB closed way back and we had a later incarnation! I must check what I was up for...

I have so many partialy built kits that I can do a one man GB of these...  Oh yeah, I just had a look at the front page here and saw that I was signed up for a T26 Pershing, and RF-4C as well. I finished the T26 two summers ago... the RF-4C is still sidelined.

ditto 4 ships, 3 submarines,  ss-25, fire truck, dinosaurs, .ural 6x6 2 planes, 3 helos

VERY NICE 68!!! I had that kit before and it does build up very nicely, as can be seen by yours lol. I had a Hasegawa air-ground set that I replaced the two microwave oven bashers with.

Anybody thinking of moderating part 3?  If not I might be able to swing it come January.

Thank you sir. I actually added a little more to the TC figure a few weeks ago- some insignia on his uniform and wiring for his handmic and helmet headphones.

Yes I could jump in on a NME3 myself. Still have plenty of shelf queens just waiting to be finished.

I haven't stopped by here in a while and missed some completed work!

Theuns - Sorry, 5 months late here but I've got to say great job on the Mil 24/35 and MIG 17!  Both are very nice and the MIG 17 has a very interesting color scheme and markings!  NICE! 

Stik - 3 months late catching your completed Pershing!  I also missed it in the Armor forum.  Man you really did a great job on this one!  The paint job, weathering, dust all blends in perfectly!  I love all the gear you added, it really livens up the look of the tank!  Great choice on the TC, he fits in perfectly and you also did a great job painting him! 

68GT - I'll say it again, great job on the F-4G!  Camo scheme looks great and I love the shark mouth!

Congratulations to all on finishing all of these, they are all beautiful! 

I'd say there's No More Excuses for doing a No More Excuses GB part 3!!  I've still got 4-5 shelf queens laying around!

I have 6 listed in my signature and a few more I'm sure.  I have never moderated a build here but if nobody wants to step up to the plate I guess I could.  I just don't know how much time I would have come my daughters basketball season.

I completed the Testors/Italeri F-4G back in December or January but never posted shots.  Maybe we can get a part 3 going.

Thank you sir. Well, it's done but my camera and computer are not talking to one another right now so I can not get the finished photos loaded at this time... oh this technology can be aggravating!!!
