I will award ribbons in a weeks time, so if anyone needs final touches on their builds - now is the time.

Remember to have photos of your finished build in the gallery.

Anybody need a two week extension to finish their build? Please let me know.




I would take you up on that, but only if enough others ask as well.

Not going to make it. Took a family trip to New York City over Christmas and the traffic and weather ate up more time than I anticipated; put me behind way too much to finish in a day.

@ Radek - Thanks!
For natural metal finish I mostly use Gunze's No. 211 and to get some other shades, 212, 213 etc. For small parts like landing gear, antennas etc. normally Humbrol 27001 (matt Aluminium) and 27002 (polished Aluminium), too.



Hmm seems I'll have to give those "smelly" stuff a try next year finally as it looks fantastic.

Ho, ho, ho everyone

@Jesper - thank you for comment.

@Lap Man, Peter - great updates your kits

@Alex, congrats on finishing your kit.

Final update

Ok, so it's 'mid' Christmas, my stomach has already surrendered, so I decided to finish the TKS between bites of a home made cold cuts and cakes .

I decided to be a little bit conservative with weathering as the vehicles weren't that much combat worn due to short campaign. So only some dust, scratches near hatches and a little bit of dirt here and there.

Here are the pics of finsished kit:





And at the end 'In your face' photo against TKS's main adversary:


It was a great build and despite fact the tracks look like if TKS hit a mine or two, I really enjoyed these tiny details and the I like what came out of my clumsy hands

(Pics downoladed to gallery)

I keep my fingers crossed for all you guys who are still finishing your kits. Thanks for great campaign and see you next year

Cheers,
Radek
