Update on my Nashorn:





Like Dustin, I'll drop whitewash over the top, but unlike him I'm going to leave most of it on then set up the crew in the fighting compartment. My figure skills are not too hot though.

I see this campaign will be ending very shortly. Can kits over 50% but less than 100% be submitted? Campaign link doesn't say from what I have read, unless I missed it.

I think that it will be up to the Administrators.

Agreed; the campaign leader makes the call, but as a general rule most campaigns limit new entries to 20% completed. How one would measure that I have no idea, but I'm guessing the difference between 20% and 50% is readily apparent.

Finished! This little guy was rather easy. The only problems where that the belly's air intake was too big and had to be substantially cut down and the prop came broken in the box.

Locator pins and flash for days. And nothing quite lines up. Oh well. Flash and sanding aside, this has been a fairly easy build so far.

Just finished my last campaign build, and thought this would be my next campaign. I'll be building the Tamiya 1:35 Marder III Ausf. M. Marder is the German word for the marten.

What exactly is a marten? Here is a pic of one.


Here are the required starting pics with today's date.

Was able to get a little work done last night. The chassis went together without any issues. Need too cleanup the suspension and the road wheels are ready for primer.
