Good job Tony.

Justin, that's too bad. This challange can be difficult. I missed the deadline last year on my first try. That's going to be cool though.

Is it too late to join Bill?  I've joined all of Lewbud's previous Weekend Madness GBs and I'd love to join again to honor him.  As usual I'm out of town this Thanksgiving weekend, but I can set aside next weekend for a krazee kwik build!  Maybe a couple of weekends before Santa shows up!

Hey guys!  I lost my internet last nite so wasn't able to post.  Not that there is much to see.  This kit is rather simple but goes together well.  Basic pit and only a few parts for the fuse.  Mostly together and in first coat of paint.  With ten hours to go, I should be OK.

And, DONE. One hour to spare. Very nice kit and it builds very well. I just don't like 1/72, they are too small for me. Especially today with my super shakey hands. But, I pulled it off and although not perfect I am very happy with how it turned out. Now to find one in 1/48.

Buddy, we all miss you and wish you had been here for this. This one is for you my friend.

My hats off to all of you. Some really excellent builds, and some challenging ones too. I reckon that Gee Bee would take me a year, so really well done. Both of the Japanese aircraft are eye catching. 

I'll take a moment to honor Buddy, I think he'd be happy with us.

Bill, I might lock and load again for next weekend. I always enjoy these weekends so much. Anyone care to join ?

Thanks for hosting this, and to all participants, I've enjoyed your builds retrospectively because I'm always too busy to read them at the time :)

I'm really pleased with the weekend. I got this model done, laid 100 square metres of turf in the backyard, then dug out and prepared and laid another 30 metres of it on the nature strip. 

Cheers

Tony

Done was a super fun build, tried a few new things, textured the hull and turret, and did hair spay paint distressing. Had a lot of fun on this one.

Dobber i can see all the work you put into that toon!

Bk that's a beauty.

Tony i may join you again next weekend! I've got another one but not sure about Holiday plans yet.

Steve nice looking triple play there. I can't help but think of Purina pet food every time I see that Polish marking lol

 

In the pattern: Scale Shipyard's 1/48 Balao Class Sub! leaning out the list, we're down to that Tamiya P-38F/G to use the other nose art Exito Decal (in-flight for this one), & in keeping with MC's hydra theory I bought another F-5E to do in FROG camo! And I just got a Trumpeter 1/32 F/A-18F!

ok....here it is....12hour overdue, but I got it done!

She is ugly, close up, but should look just fine in my display case...

 

This kit fought me to the bitter end.  The last step necessary was to install the glass.  The kit glass was horrendous.  I ended up making the front glass out of plastic blisster packaging, and the side glass ( as you can probable tell, were made from white glue, and are still drying.

 

Overall, I really like how this scheme turned out on this kit.  But, I will probably try to avoid AMP kits in the future! (at least for these weekend madness builds!)

 

Also, I was trying to drum up support and others to join in on the group build, and I did get a couple...search the hashtag #weekendslammerbuild on facebook and the instagram to check them out!

Now THAT is different.  Great idea.  Now that I see it finished I can see where you got the idea.

Well, I'm calling her done with an hour and a half to spare.  Usually I'm right down to the wire.  Took me forever to mask and unmask her, no decals here!  I'll post some better pictures when I have better lighting.  I always seem to finish at night.

This one's for you Buddy!

Me too, Dave. I'm getting my booster and flu shot Friday after work, planning to lay low all weekend.

 

Great work, troops!

 

Caveman, did you know that the Santa Fe actually ran an airfreight service for a brief time called Santa Fe Skyway. But they flew DC-4s, not Ekranoplans.

 

Carry on, really nice work so far.
