Let's see if I can get this done in a month:



This will be primarily OOB, as I am going to be using it as a template to finish a Bandai 1/30 kit for a friend. The Bandai is very toy-like, so I plan to make copies of whatever I see missing. If I change anything, it most likely will be the tracks, which aren't very magical. I just finished a Dicker Max, so I'm in the Pz. IV frame of mind.

Here is my completed Pz III Ausf L.
The same photos are in the campaign gallery.
A Lot of great models on going in this campaign.
Thanks for a great campaign.
Tom



Tom,

Not sure you posted these in the correct campaign. This one is about Panzer IVs, M4s, and T-34s. It's also the first post I see from you here. Should this be somewhere else?

Michael



Michael,
You are correct, the pz III belongs somewhere else.
Do I still have time to enter a 1/48 scale T-34?

99% done, just waiting on replacement fuel tank mounts. Shapeways tells me they ship on the 3rd. At the rate I paint I can still go for the unfinished business campaign, but I hope to at least get a basic coat of paint on.

@ Randall, Nice looking T34

I've made more progress on my 2nd build for the campaign - Tamiya's venerable Pz iv ausf D with a lot of adds and a bit of scratch. Here are some pics









Doubt I'll get this finished by the deadline, but my first build the Italeri pz iv F2 is very near completion (fateful last words)...

Cheers

Very nice work Matthew. Really did a nice job bringing that Panzer IV ausf D up to today's standards regarding details.

Cheers!

Chuck, Nice looking panzer iv F2! I like the way you've posed the vision ports open on the turret - very nice. Makes it looked lived in. I look forward to seeing the paint job!

Best

Thanks very much Matthew. Each build I try to do something a bit different from the previous build. Small steps. I'm hustling to get this done before the deadline at the end of this month. I'm hoping to pose the turret stowage bin open and stuffed with hay along with a chicken or two, similar to the one color plate from the old Squadron Panzer IV series...Looking forward to seeing your build completed.

Cheers!

Good to see so many of you racing for the finish on those old workhorses. About three weeks to go!

Some really nice looking models here. I am still hopeful I can get paint on my T-34, but nature has been against me this month. It's my fault for procrastinating.

The hot days of summer have kept me out of my painting and casting room. That area of my house is not cooled and I can't take the heat. Those days were mixed with rain storms that sent the humidity way up.

I decided to rebuild the paint booth in another room where I can add a window air conditioner, and a vent fan, but it turned out to be a never ending project! The new room was a junk storage room and to move all the junk from the room I had to build a new storage area and that involved... You get the idea! It might be a blessing because it got me to start throwing out some junk I don't really need.

Anyhow I think I might have the disasters under control in a week to ten days, and then slap some paint on the model just to get it "done".

Under the rules for this contest is states no what-ifs. Can I make sure this means no German captured schemes before I commit to building one. I have a world of tanks sherman that comes with zero decals in reality.
