@Mike - Very good, your Ki-84

I've just posted my final pictures of my Lightning in the gallery and say thanks for another entertaining campaign!
If there are some mates struggling for the finish line, good luck

Cheers Peter

Roman, I've built that kit, and it goes together really well. Looking forward to seeing you speed build it!

Here's a pic of mine!

Well, My KATE did not work out very well...
After I painted the Green upper surfaces when I spray future on it got all gross and ruined the paint.
SO I ran it under hot water to remove the Future and it removed some of the paint as well.


So I will try and finish it up by the 15th now that this has been extended.

But in the mean time, I did finish the Zero

Okay, I've uploaded my photos to Kitmaker, but how to I get them into the campaign gallery?



Matt,

Go to the campaign gallery, look in the upper right hand corner and see if you're logged in. If not, do so. If so, click on the "upload photos" link and follow the instructions. This will actually call for you to upload directly from your computer, since the gallery is separate from your personal gallery and can't upload from there. Hope that helps!

Michael




Done and done!

I was going about it backwards - I uploaded them to my gallery and figured I was supposed to then essentially 'tag' them into the campaign gallery.

Paint is done (no decals on this bird). Needs a flat coat, the prop and spinner added, antenna, and that'll about do it. Off today and the weekend, so I expect I'll be done shortly.

Because I couldn't leave well enough alone, I managed to finish the second kit for this campaign, the Kawanishi N1K1 floatplane.





And here next to it's landlubbing brother the N1K1-ja

Hi mates,
my Lightning is near the finish line.


Decals are on, but at the rudders they came off partly.
I'll try to fix that with the german equivalent of Future...
Guns and canopy come last.
Should make it to the deadline

1st coat of paint is on, and decals are done. The markings are from a company called Third Group. I bought them years ago, but they went on perfectly and you wouldn't know they were around 12 years old or more. The turret stars are supposed to be incomplete.

tracks are 3 bar cleat from Panda and correct for this tank based on pictures in "Son of Sherman"

So it is where i am at this point. Start working on painting bottom areas. first coat of weathering. base color


Now i am going to put a base color 50/50 with white to make it lighter, then 50/50 with black. And at the end just base color to cover all up. First time i am using that technique so i will se how it will look...
will keep you guys posted

Extension or not, I've gotten busy! (No complaints by me!)

So, I do NOT like canopies. But, I may not like them "less" now that I've found (again?) that Bare Metal Foil does pretty good with the correct blade.

Before:


After:


The canopy parts are not yet glued into place...a little more to do before I can "zip this one up."
