I really like the Landsverk M38, see if I can get my hands on that one.
This one is also very nice.

Never build a Dnepro Model kit so far. I have a little resin kit in the stash and detail looks very good. So might give the Ford DAF a go for this campaign.
D-Day Miniatures just released a Dutch figure set and they look just great

One can also purchase the individual figures or sets of 2.
Let's make a plan now on what to build for this campaign.

Cheers,

Robert Jan

Well, I already subscribed as from the beginning of this campaign, but my purchased Dragon Panzer II will have to wait. On it's way to my doorstep is the Dnepro Ford DAF. Will be my first Resin Car/Truck to build. Seen some good building reference from the 'Panzer Serra Bunker' already, so I'm prepared for a, hopefully successful build.
Waiting for the kit to arrive. See you all soon.

Kind regards,

Robert Jan

Gary: Congratulation! The look of the 8-Rad is really stunning. What have You used to weather the tires and the Wheel arcs?

Great work Gaz! Nice finish for that lovely 8 rad. Well painted and weathered, especially those wheels.


I have some advances in my R-35.

Another problem: we need lenghten return wheels a pair of millimeters to line up tracks correctly.





Engine painted.







Interior completed. I was testing and then we will see only the seat... That´s a real, real pity.





Tracks in place. Fortunately, there were no problems here.





Regards!
Tomás

The interior looks great, Tomas! Is it difficult to find resources for the interior?

Nice choice Pasi. Seems to me that some of those parts are identical to parts in the B1 bis kit ….


… and my start pic... forgot to post it a couple of weeks ago:

Gaz - What a great build! Having the wheels slightly steered adds some life to the project. It was worth the extra effort you lavished on the suspension.

Tomas - Your R-35 is really coming to life. Are you planning to open up the crew hatches?

Pasi & Peter - Two very appealing kits from Tamiya. Both of those tanks did a good job for the French in 1940.

Tomás:
Outstanding detailing job! Excellent.

Pasi and Peter: Great choices. I will enjoy Your builds!

Started on my 6Rad and did some refinements on the antenna.



With only some few parts on one sprue, glueing could be done rather fast. I added some wiring and started priming. Next will be some color.


Have fun

Thank you Gary.

Yes, it is a tiny little kit.

The colour and decals are now on with some fading effects and a washing. Next will be the weathering process.





Have fun

Very nice work Oliver. The added detail does make a big difference. I tried to build the Italeri 1/35th scale version but was very disappointed with that one.

Gaz: Thank you! Sorry, I cannot understand your question. Do yo mean to find resources to see the hull interior?

Peter: Thank you! And I like a lot the Char B. Great choice.

Pasi: Nice tank the Somua. It performed well in that battle.

Paul: Thank you! Yes, I´ll leave a hatch (only) open.

Oliver: Thank you! And great advances with your 6 rad. Nice build and great job with the painting.

Here we go with some advances.

Turret complete. We can see the little metal gun barrel. The three "little plastic horns" on top were impossible to handle for me. So, styrene came to the rescue.







The hull is almost complete. This is the only thing we´ll see from the inside.





And build almost complete.

Nice build Tomás. Not all Somua had the lifting hooks on the cupola so it depends on your references.

I plan to start the Char B1 Bis soon.

Some nifty builds going on here! My entry will be the A13 Mk III Cruiser tank by Bronco. It's been in my stash since I saw it at a show a decade ago (when it first came out) and it's about time I got stuck in. I did get the indy-link tracks, as the kit vynil ones are about four links too short...

Tomas... Excellent! Love the add-ons!


Tom... Glad to see this come along. Been wondering about these Bronco cruiser tanks.

My entry to the campaign.
Dnepro Model 1939 Ford DAF 1 ton 91 Y & TAS Modelshop 4.7cm Dutch Bohler anti tank gun.


In Dutch abbreviated as "PAG Trekker" the Dnepro Model 1939 Ford DAF 1 ton 91 Y is one nice fine kit. It has an engine and the detailed resin is very crisp.
The PAG from TAS Modelshop is kind of fragile. It has some challenges so see where that goes.

Kind regards,

Robert Jan
