Here's my completed Leo 1A3. I decided on the NATO-flage for interest, even though they only lasted about a year after it was introduced. I tried putting these in the Gallery just now, but once again it is FUBAR with the "server busy" message.

Brilliant finish Tom. The camo is very striking, I can see why you went with it. Very nicely weathered too.

Thanks for joining in, once again, your company has been most enjoyable.

Good morning,
I am dome with the chassis of the UNIMOG.





The paint job is not perfect, but after weathering it will be look better, I hope. Enjoy your day

Nice Martin. You probably won't see much in the end anyway...

Well everyone, my PZH 2000 is now sitting on a simple dio base, waiting for the glue to dry. Figures are about done... the finish line is in sight. However, the base is looking quite bare, this massive machine with so much bare earth under the barrel.... Ineed to think some more about that. I'll post pics in a couple of days and ask your advice.....

@Pete, once again it's been a fun campaign! Can't wait to see how we do these in the new forums. But when we do, I'll be there!

@Martin, that chassis is stunning! It's almost a shame to hide it under bodywork...

Very nice Leo Tom.
I still don't notice at once if it's a A3 or a A4. Even after I've read Michael Shackleton excellent books

Wow, these are stunning results gentlemen.

Sorry for posting litte in the last time. I just had to educate this little fellow (He is rather fast in finding things that I dropped. Just have to teach him, how to give them back to me).



Now, I found some time to take some pictures of my roll out.




Keep on building!

Hi Oliver,

really nice work with your Spz Luchs. However, the rear warning plates look way to large.

Check here:
http://www.panzerbaer.de/types/bw_spaehpz_2_luchs-a2.htm

These warning plates for Bundeswehr vehicles are 423x423mm. You may check this for better look. Perfect scale does these decals and sells these with etched ground plate.

Very nicely done Oliver. I especially like the way the tyres came out with weathering.

Thanks for joining in. Hope you had fun.

Peter and Oliver - those models looks great.
My next update - the cargo part is painted and placed on the chassis.




I hope that I will finish the cab this week and in the next weekend will weather the model.
Thank you for watching

You are the only person I know that does the cargo bed before the cab Martin.

Looking good.

I have a good reason for it. I was not sure how to mask the cab, the windows are open and I wanted to keep the interior clean. So I started with the cargo bed until I find proper way to mask the cab.

Two weeks to go guys.

With the end so close, I am not going to start a thread in the new forum. Based on the end dates and people starting new threads for the others, this will likely be the last Campaign that will be start to finish in the old Armorama Forum. The quality of the builds in this thread is a great testament, and fitting epitaph, for that. In my opinion anyway.

Cheers

Peter

lol, its seems so lately. This build is really bad. I am finishing up my Leopard from Tamiya in the other campaign and was thinking it wasnt going to be good, I was wrong, I actually think thats one of the top three builds I have done were it fit together really well. On the flip side I am sure this italeri kit is worse than even the Tamiya Panther A.

No, Peter. I don't know about the other Amorama Campaigns here, but my 40 years Leopard 2 Campaign ends on the 1. Dec. I will also not open a new thread for it in the new forum. But sadly it seems that we can't take all our ribbons with us ....
