Steve that looks incredible! I’ve enjoyed watching you bring it all together. I’m honored you built this one.

In the pattern: 1/32 T-38 Thunderbird custom build, and a 1/32 BaaBaa Black Sheep Corsair for a tribute build!

Well, progress on my Hawkeye is painfully slow due to poor fit, so I've cracked open the 102 and begun painting the cockpit. I don't have anything to show yet, but in the next few days I should posting up some pics and progress. So far, it looks like it will go together with no fuss.

Well, I'm almost done the StuG, just have to paint the figures. Would anyone have any ideas who to paint these guys? From my limited knowledge S.P. guns wore field grey uniforms? What other camo would they be in?

I don't have the foggiest idea regarding German uniforms but if you pose the question on the armor forum you'll get more info than you"ll need or want.

Since I finished he Blenheim I returned to the Eurofighter.

The seams are filled and I need to finish touching up the cockpit, mask and install the canopy, install the canards and paint. The paint scheme is the same throughout so it shouldn't be any problem.

Nice looking plane Europe.

Steve, that Eurofighter is a such a sick looking AC. I can't hardly wait to see this one done.

As far as the 102, I've completed the seam work and need to get some shots taken and post them up. I'll try to get to that later today. It's a nice kit and has great detail. It also builds very easily with no fuss at all.

Steve,

Nice job on the Blenheim! The Eurofighter is looking good as well.

GA,

The Stug is looking good. No clue about the uniforms though.

SD,

Looking forward to watching the M-41 come together.

Haven't started my Tornado yet, to many unfinished Weekend GB builds on the table.

Ok, Gents, here's the shots I promised yesterday. I've been pretty busy this week so work has slowed, but this kit practically builds itself. More to come.

Brandon,

Looks like yours went together a lot easier than mine did. Is the IP a decal or pe? I do recomend getting the window mask for this bird, makes life a whole lot easier. Looking good.

The IP is a the kit decal. I didn't spend too much time on the cockpit as it will be closed and very small so it will be hard to see anyway.
