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.

There isn't Kane, kerbside detail only :lol: I think Plus Model or someone make a drop in resin engine set

Update time. Been trying to get through my loss of Mojo :whistle: After the pigment fixer had dried over a few days, I masked up the M1025 last night and blasted primer and colour coat on today. Couldn't have been a much more unpleasant day weather wise for painting. So bitter out in the wind :blink: Hoping to do some detail painting early in the afternoon, then seal it in with a clearcoat later (weather permitting) in the afternoon. Still have 3 days left to finish it :silly:

Anyway, here are the progress pics.

... or 10 days if you go by the end date shown here:
www.kiwimodeller.com/index.php/kunena-2015-06-20/group-builds :P

Either way I hope you find the time to get this one done. It's looking too good to miss out now.

I'd quite like to do a jeep/humvee/wheeled-military-thingy of some sort myself soon.
There's a TV add on at the moment for selling the 75th Anniversary Jeeps that has some war footage of the original Willys Jeeps.
It made me fish out my S-Model 1/72 'Quick-build' kit. I don't know where they get the idea of this kit being a quick build - there's probably as many parts as in a 1/35 kit including PE. There are 2 kits per box (S-Model are nice like that) but even so it's a very full box. :)

Which end date was it? I was going for the 22nd... but then reading the blurb in the header on this it's the 15th... I'm hoping to get my Missouri done, just been under the weather the last couple of days and haven't made any progress on it

At the bench now. Just brushing the last detail painting on the Mk.19

Will be spraying X-22 before dropping the mrs at working and put it into the drying room I made (laundry with doors and windows closed with two dehumidifiers going full blast lol)

Hoping to get decals on at lunchtime, then another coat of X-22 before a pinwash.

Targeting flat coat at 4pm

Wet coat of pigments around 5pm

Final dusting pigments and finishing pics between 7pm and 9pm

Well that is the plan :lol: :woohoo:

I don't think the drying room is helping, sorry.
Dehumidifiers remove water from the air but I doubt they'd have any effect on paint solvents which are much more volatile.
The best thing for drying paint is heat & air flow. Heat promotes evaporation and air flow keeps the partial pressure of the solvents down.
Open those doors & windows and crank up the heater. :)

On task, but a little behind schedule.

Just come up from giving the M1025 another coat of X-22 after applying decals.

Will wait for that to dry for an hour or so, then will be mixing up a wash from Windsor & Newton oils to apply

Still have just over 4 hours to finish it :woohoo: working on getting the kids to bed so should be a bit more focussed for the final push

Hi Andrew. How did you get on?

I started building models, then I was collecting more than I built. Now I'm more of an archivist.
