Hello everyone. Smile I am going to be building a halftrack towing a big gun. Richie said these guns were very good for blowing up planes, blowing up tanks and even against infantry. affraid affraid affraid







The figures are butt ugly so I will use some better ones. Thanks Jenny for the photos and helping me post them. Very Happy

Hiya Mel:

That is going to be a great little combo you have there. And you should tell Jenny that she owes me another $25 because of the butt crease ugly figgies you have Wink .

Well this was a pretty nice build. The figures all need to be built yet. I need to make the base too.





Pavel have you got some photos of the scheme you like so I can see?

Hi Mel:

Wow! It DOES look like that Zabak's disease is spreading here Wink . That is a real nice job on both the halftruck and the "88". And if you and Jenny can get the paint done this weekend, maybe you and her can enter a second kit. Maybe even a couple of airamaplanes for your "88" to shoot at Razz . I'm sure Jenny would like that Suspect .

Sorry I am so late in finishing and thanks to Erica and Gary for giving me an extension. I had to wait for another bottle of diorama gloop that Jenny ordered to finish.























I used figures by Preiser, thank you Jenny for making the load on the back of the half track , for taking photos and helping me post them. Very Happy
Thanks Richie for helping me with the right paints and stuff and cutting the board.

Very nice!! The HT and 88 are very good and the figures are excellent, but my fave is the base!!

Those rubber band tracks remind me of the sort you got in 1:35 kits when I was a kid. They were tragic! Full marks for persevering with them, well done!

Cheers

Howdy Mel:

That turned out to be one great little diorama. And I am impressed with how good your halftrack and great big old "88" looks way nice too. So in the future just make sure you get to the gloop before Jenny does Wink .

That is a beauty too! I think Mel should get double credit because that was two kits she built! And very nicely too! I kind of thought it was a France, 1940 diomarama until I saw the caps, but more so the K for Kampfgruppe Kleist, ahhh... a visit to the Ostfront! The tracks that were supplied are kinda icky, but the weathering is awesome and makes me a bit jealous! Not too much, not too little, and just the right color of dust too! Awesome work Mel! Smile
