I've never joined a group build before. I know you build a model around a certain theme, but what do you do then? Present it?

I'd like to join. Not certain what I will be doing but it will probably be a Tamiya or Hasegawa 1/48 Corsair.

Yes! we can start!!!

Now I don't want anyone thinking I started early... it was already started before but I was able to use it for this GB. Here is what I have done so far on my StuG IV, where there is salt is where I am planning to put chipped paint but that may change b/c I may have over done the affect, what do you think?Disapprove [V]

ahh, come on scer, I built that kit in 12 hrs!Big Smile [:D]
dont worry you dont have to rush!

Anthony, looks good. I think it going to be too hard to tell if you over did the salt effect until you remove the salt. I wonder why I have yet to try this method? Guess its time to model DAK.

FINALLY! some competition!

Well, you know how we had that discussion in the last thread about no competition. Well, I finally had some. The judges decided to delete the Juniors catagory since there were only 2 entries and make a military category and auto catagories.
I was very happy to recieve the best of show military against a very nice U-boat and some sort of german plane. And they were not juniors, that just boosts my confidence.Approve [^]

anybody else make it to the Hobby town contest?

The monkey has decided. Since I got this model April 2nd it counts. I shall not be doing the corsair like I thought. I'm doing a Revell 1/32 Panavia Tornado completely OOB (except decals maybe.....) Hope that's okay.
