Howdy good sirs,

Just a quick note to let you all know that I stopped by and updated the Master list (first post) showing all of the updated participants (that includes you PvtParts ).

There are only four (4) days left till the end of the Campaign, so try your best to get your entries in just as soon as you can. Good luck!

Tread.

Oh, and since I kinda let PvtParts slip through the cracks (I try to read thru the other "Incoming!!" threads, but pay most of my attention to this thread because of time constraints), I wanted to post a picture of his finely built, Shermie-based M12 SPG.
here ya go......

Hey tread! Would a single mortar would do for my next entry? I guess the diorama won't be complete till Oct.

Here's a picture of my finished MLRS. It is sitting on a blow out disk, or what is left of one, from an actual rocket pod that was fired by a unit that I used to work with. I tried to find a whole disk, but none were to be found since they fly a LONG ways or break into itty bitty pieces when a rocket is launched.

Way cool there Targetdriver! Great idea for the base too! Make sure that you are all signed up for this campaign. I didn't see your name there but I might have missed it in the listing.

shonen_red:

I am not Tread and your question was directed to him, but please allow me to say that a single mortar does qualify.

Howdy fellas,

to shonen: Well of course. Would love to add a " X 2 " after your check mark!

to targetdriver: First, a hearty Congratulations on making it across the finish line! And second, my apologies for not checking the "Incoming!!" Campaign page to notice that you signed up. Always room for one more, especially one that is so well done. And BIG kudos for your rather unique 'display base'!! Superb idea there targetdriver.......love it. You get special marks for that!
I'll add your name to the 'Master List' right away, along with your 'goodies'....

Tread.

Finally done with my project. It is the Tamiya Flak 36 built to represent a gun from the 24th Panzer Division prior to it's demise in the Stalingrad campaign. Here are a couple photos, I will have more in my "Regarding German 88" thread, along with some descriptions.

There sure is a lot of great stuff you guys have done for this campaign. Very impressive.

Got a close call today, almost severed my finger at work. But an injured one wont stop me from making the deadline. I know I'm already cramming but I'm almost done.

Hey there Tread.....

I will be able to make the deadline, but I may not be able to have pictures available until after the weekend, the finish date is what? Thursday or Friday? I have a model show to go to this weekend, and will just be getting it finished Thursday night (maybe Friday morning) and then a 4 hr trip to Halifax for the show, so I may not have pics posted until Sunday night or Monday.

However to bribe all of you....I will have probably 200-300 pics of probably the biggest show on Canada's east coast.

Hope thats ok!! Be my first completed campaign...lol

My entry for Incoming Campaign can be seen in my photo gallery. A little fuzzy but you will get the idea. My buddy helped me out by taking the photos and getting them posted to my gallery. Comments are welcome...be gentle...this is the first model I've completed in over twelve years....it isn't much, but it's all I could do with what little time I get to do any modeling...I really enjoyed it...brought back some fond memories while researching some of the items I had to scratch build...

11Charlie , that is totally COOL and totally OUTSTANDING!! Congratulations for completing your first model in 12 years (I know that you've been extremely busy these past few months!) and also for getting back into the fold and for being a part of this campaign!!! It is an honor to have you here man! Not too many have the 4.2-Inch time that you have! Great to see one of you do one of that!

One Q: What's that gray 'box' to the left of the tube?

Now, if you can sharpen up your favorite image there, please send it to me el pronto!

kkeefe,

I think what you are referring to is actually the aiming post bag with two of the four aiming posts still inside (if standing facing the business end of the tube). The box to the right is the M53 sight box I had to scratch build. My buddies digital didn't take closeups real well, as you can tell. The aiming posts, the aiming post bag, sandbags, and a number of details on the mortar were all scratch built as well. The molded-on baseplate handles were cut off and rope handles made to replace them. The rocks were made using woodland scenics rubber molds and dental plaster (we use that at work for casting footprints and tire tracks at crime scenes). The lighter foliage was made from some kind of moss from northwest rainforests and the darker foliage is reindeer moss (both purchased at Michaels).
I don't mind saying you (kkeefe) were a huge inspiration in getting me to participate in this campaign and I appreciate the guidance you gave me early on (and with the sandbags). Everyone may notice I kind of followed your lead in displaying the mortar...hope you don't mind...like they say, immitation is the best compliment...I'll get you better photo's as soon as I can...

Thanks for all the feedback guys...keep the suggestions coming...it means a lot...
