Thank you Treadhead and all who helped establish and run this arty campaign. I appreciate my entry being accepted, and the ribbon is very sharp! I'm beginning to feel a wee bit salty around here. Time to get my itty bitty Jap. fuel truck built for "Move it".
Sincerly, Tom

I am done, I am done...ha ha ha...I cannot believe it.

Did I cross in time?

Here is the 2S1 122mm SPG and the 1V13 FDC.

I have to run off to a show in Chicago for the weekend, so I will try to catch up with you all next Monday.

Ciao,
This was my entry into the campaign. Hope I'm not too late. Four Hurricanes have put a damper on my modelling as of late. Anyway, the entry.......


Ciao for now

WOW!! Some excellent models still coming in! Looks like the extension is paying off!

Paul: That is a beauty and I know that it was a struggle at times for you but, I knew that you would 'gut this one out' and complete it for this campaign! Congratulations man! Any chance of getting a base and some groundwork added? Something like that would really finish this off!... If it is complete, please tell me which one of the four photos sent is your favorite, if not, I can wait. I would like to have this on my guest files page! I wish that all mortar kits were in this scale as the detail in the sighting unit is very nice. A far cry from the 1/35 version.

Rob: WOW! Another beautifully executed GrW42!! Wonderful little setting with all of the painting is just wonderfully done.

If you would be interested in having a photo on my guest files page, please choose and send your best photo to [email protected]. Thanks.

Great stuff everybody! I have no idea when this campaign is going to officially end so, keep 'em comin' in!

I can't believe that I'm still laughing over this thing... what a ton of fun doing this was! :-) If I ever stop laughing, I just might do another.

Scott:
This was sent to me as a gift from a girl-friend in Belgium. I have no idea what it is or who it is supposed to be although I am trying to find out from her what kit it is. (I think that she might have found someone else... someone a little closer. :-) )

Harrison:

Thanks. This was my first ever attempt at something like this. Didn't really care about the facial tones. These little buggers are so small I was surprised that I got paint in the right places period. Especially as I was laughing all the time thru this! :-)

Dragonslain:

It's not that the figures are short, it's the large caliber mortar that they're with. :-) I'll have more pics on my website as soon as (and if) I can find out a little more about the kit. :-)

Thanks everyone for your kind words. First time branching out like this. I had an absolute blast with it too! :-)

Painted and washed entirely with acrylics and total time on the bench was about two weeks. My 'standard' 3-1/2 inch dia base, Sculptamold and Woodland Scenics foam 'bushes'.

I figured that it contained a mortar so what the heck. :-)

Hey Tread...Ribbons? Us poor gun-bunnies are looking for our reward! :-) #:-)

Looks like we got a EXCELLENT turnout for incoming, you must be proud. It got me off my lazy butt to finish my vehicles, something I should have done years ago.

Howdy to all my modeling Compadre's!!!

To begin, I want to first extend my apologies for taking so long to finally get to wrapping this all up, and putting the 'rubber stamp' on this Campaign. I've had to go over all of my personal business from last week, and had to spend a decent amount of time going over all of the entries in the "Incoming!!" Campaign to make sure I gave EVERYBODY their just credit.
I'm pretty darn sure I've checked everybody off properly on the master list (First Post of this thread), and believe I have awarded everyone their Campaign Ribbons. And on that note, I want to send out a big "Thank You!" to whoever it was that awarded the Ribbons while I was away. I think whoever it was that did it did a darn good job of keeping you guys at bay, and not letting you all turn into a lynch-mob seeking my head on the end of a rope!

I have also awarded over a dozen new medals to the following participants:

9) Savage
64) rfeehan
52) Jacques
15) Tony_Frey
126) huskey1943
109) lestweforget
155) LogansDad
146) TOKE
137) A-Train
122) recon-19d
116) RotorHead67
138) blaster76
111) 19K

And to those of you (above) who had to wait a bit longer for your Ribbons, I truly appreciate your quiet patience

So, before I post my final words of pride regarding this most successful of Campaign's, would all of you please take a moment and check out the first post of this thread and make doubly sure you have ALL received your just rewards.

Thank You.

Tread.

Thank you for all of the fun Tread!

I was hoping to see your Norinco multi-tube finished however, that would indeed make a lovely "bucket" entry....

It has been a pleasure to serve.

Hey Tread, thanks for all the hard work on this campaign.

I like my pretty new ribbon in my salad bar!

Now we just have to get Gunnie (guntruck) to give us our T2K 2003 ribbons... ( I know, I know, never satisfied...)

Oh yeah,

If the front roll-call is correct, we had 76 out of 155 individuals complete a kit for this competition. While that is just under 50%, it is really impressive. However, that still does not add in the impressive NUMBER of kits built:

99 entries.

I think this was a big success.
