The subject of this group build is to take a model off your shelf that's been sitting there unfinished and finish it.
To start post photos of your model(s) in it's current state with a quick blurb of what version you were building and why it ended up abandoned. Then blog and post photos of you finishing it!
Extra kudos the older it is.

Here she is in all her glory - a Tamiya Marder 1a2 with Eduard PE



This was the first kit I tackled when I got back into building and I was keen to scratch build an interior. All up it was a bit harder than I thought so it's languished while I've tackled other projects



So now it's time to dust it off and finish up. Still undecided about what finish I will paint it

That's a subject you don't often see built. Interior looks very nice. Looking forward to seeing this one progress.

Yeah, something else to go for an interior like that on your first model!

Great interior. This is an excellent shelf queen to work with.

Thanks, I'm looking forward to getting it finished and stopping it sitting there staring at me all the time

Now that I've finished editing from the weekend I can look at where each stage is, post some updates, and get to work

So taking stock of where I am with this build

The turret is done and primed


The body has had the interior sealed up and work being done attaching the photo etch tool holders. Need to continue with photo etch and cleaning up tools


It's a bit of a frankenmarder and I haven't decided what colour scheme I want to do it in yet. I also have some accessories for it, spanning several decades so it will not be a 100% accurate vehicle:

So far slowly working through figuring out what I was thinking in places, fixing other places, and moving though the build

Still undecided as to what I'm going to paint this - I have the Ammo RAL 6014 Gelboliv OR I could do the three colour NATO.... decisions decisions

For me, I think the model has so much detail that the single colour will let it shine out more.

But then it would also look great in 3 lol Im not good at this.
