About the Author

About Kevin Potts (ElCapitan)
FROM: PENNSYLVANIA, UNITED STATES

I started to build models at the age of 6 and somewhere in my teens I took a long break. Then a couple of years ago I returned to the hobby and got back into it, so now I try something different on each vehicle in an attempt to push myself.


Comments

@Braille -thanks for the comments, Eddy. While a long time (longer than I anticipated) in coming this build was meant to eventually be a build review or perhaps a feature. As you might recall, bases are still new to me so there will defintely be a continuance of this build in the "AFV/Braille" forum on the site. As for storage, I am not too sure. I have little on hand and it just isn't available in my area within 100 miles (160 km) or more, if then.  As for antennas, that depends on the final base and other factors. I'll leave this and other specifics for a more dedicated thread.  Cheers, Jan

Jan, nice work on the M26, like the weathering. Also looking forward to the base and all. Graeme, decals arrive yet? I am willing to grant individual extensions to those who are close to finish and only need a few more days. It would be a pity not to have some of the builds in the campaign just because of a few days. As for the campaign gallery, just send them to me and I'll use them for the feature and post them to the gallery later on. Ribbons will be granted in any case of course. The gallery issue really is a nuisance and I hope this will be resolved soon. Now go for the final few hours! Cheers! Stefan

@Greame: Decals in the post? D'oh! We're all dying to see it finished! Fair play to Stefan to give you a dispensation. You deserve it. Your build log has been fantastic! Eoin

Hi Eoin & Stefan...wish I had read your post before bashing on! In any event, I scrounged the decal box and this is the best I could come up with. The 25th CIB flash is OK, but the white star is too big and the AoS # is incorrect. The Commonwealth Division patch is missing (but coming in the mail). Honestly, I think I will re-do the markings. I was hasty here for the deadline and I'd rather slow down and get it right before I seal the markings on with a gloss coat.

Man, would you look at that! missed the end of my own campaign! Thanks to all the participants! I will give out the ribbons soon and get to work on the feature. Graeme, the M8 turned out great anyway, I hope to see it around in the forums finished soon. Cheers! Stefan

Stefan, Thanks for the fine ribbon and a GREAT campaign. It was a definite learning experience (especially about early Trumpeter kits). Nothing wrong or shameless about a plug for your next campaign. It's a good reason for a leader to build and complete a kit. As for your next campaign, I recall a US half-track in my stash begging to be buIlt. Cheers, Jan
