68GT-thank you for opening up another round-I have two projects, the P-40 from Bish's RAF GB and the F-6B for an old D-Day GB/Shelf of Doom II that I hope to finsh before the end of this year but if I don't, they'll be goals for SoD III....along with a couple of others that need to be completed.

I'd be up for another go. I think about a quarter of my stash would qualify for this build.

I'd sign up for another round.  Never did finish that T-34 that I intended for this GB. Embarrassed

I wasnt even paying attention to the end date.  If there is enough interest we could run another.

 

The Interceptor GB petered out so I'm open to mod.

I noticed mt F-80 did not get a (completed) behind it yet?

Are we going to start another round?  I've still got a few I can add to the next GB.

Unfortunatly I do not believe that I will be finishing this one. I had over-commited myself, and by the time I came to this one it was becomig a chore to finish. Also the weather has been bad, and too humid to paint. I had hoped to finish this one, but do not feel up to more painting right now. Great work everybody, I am still following your fantastic work and hope that you do better than I did.

Yeah! I finished another. Had lots of fun with 30 year old decals and Alclad NMF.  Lost the ejection seat somewhere so I had to scratch build that.  the decals and seat belts were the only thing added to it not out of the box.

Tony,

  When you get a chance can you update my completions in the roster and add one of these pictures to the completed page?  Thanks.

Gentlemen, I don't think I'll be finished with the Type 4 by the end date. But, I'm not going to stop until finished and I will continue to post progress pictures.

68GT-looking forward to seeing your comleted build.....I'm ashamed to admit that I've got three planes that just need the canopy painted-I hate masking & painting canopies....

Bruce-very nice job on your Type4-chipping & weathering look good from here

Made some progress on the Mustang-my first attempt at invasion stripes-not perfect but I'm happy with them-learned some lessons on the way so all is good....and in real life, they were painted with brushes quickly, so......

will shoot another coat of Future tomorrow after work to clear up some silvering of decals-then some flat on Tue and hopefully some oil weathering on Wed-might actually meet the deadline!

I got some chipping done on the Type 4. This was my first attempt, and I'm not real happy with how it turned out. Let me know your thoughts.

I'm waiting for some Wilder Rusting effects to come in then I'll finish doing some rust on the hull and the turret. Then some mudding. More to come...

Thanks for looking...

It's the Hasegawa kit in 1/72.  Bought this back around 1982 from the air an space museum on a class trip to Washington.  Started it around 2005 when I got back into modeling.

I got the pin wash complete, and this weekend I'm chipping her up and rusting her a bit. Then, with a little luck, I'll start mudding her too.

More to come...

Don't be embarrassed, 68. I'd like to see this one finished! What scale is it, by the way?

I'm going to jump in here with my long time shelf squater.  Been building it off and on for years.  1/72 Hasegawa P-3C Orion

 

Oooo! Can't wait to see this one.  I have one in the stash I haven't started yet.

John,

Great job on the F-80. The NMF turned out very well. I have a lot of old decals too, so it's nice to know I can save them. 

 

I use Microscales Micro liquid decal film on them,  brush on 1 or two coats and usually works great.
