Operation Desert Storm 25th Anniversary

January 17th 2016 will mark 25 years since the US-led Coalition began airstrikes in a prelude to boots on the ground to force the withdrawal of Saddam Hussein’s Iraqi forces from Kuwait. To mark the 25th Anniversary, we will be commencing a Kiwimodeller Group Build, beginning January 17th 2016, and finishing on the 15th of July 2016.
The build is open to any scale and any subject that played a role in Operation Desert Storm. This includes Iraqi forces. The model must be built in its entirety within the specified build dates and the build should be accompanied by a thread in the group build forum documenting regular progress. Post shots of your sprues at the beginning of your thread.
By the end of the GB (and no later than 24 hours after the completion date) participants should post five pictures of the completed build in the GB completed builds thread. There is no entry fee for the GB, but a donation for the upkeep of Kiwimodeller is welcome The winner of the group build will be decided by popular vote.
Voting will run for the week following the 15th of July, ending Midday the 22nd of July. A deadlock will be decided by a separate run-off vote.

Well....I'm calling it done.. Reasonably happy being my second armour kit. Learnt a lot! I'm thinking I went a little too far weathering wise but as I was learning as I went Im not too bothered. I have to say ...I actually did enjoy it in a frustrating sorta way!




























Bring on the Tomcat!

Its extremely very good. You should be proud. And nothing wrong with the weathering either, sure it is on the heavy side for a modern western unit, but it looks great.

Fine model, friend. I'd be more than happy with that on my shelf.

Yep I really like how this has turned out. That is a totally convincing machine. The simple base also works really well.

That looks great dude. I like the weathering, looks good to me (though I am no armour expert). Nice simple base there was well... all works in well together.
