After adding some wear and tear, some dirt, some rust and some decals the Tiger 1 from the movie "Fury" is finally done! I have netting on it I will be attaching flock to when I get some,  for now it's all but done.  I've added every hit mark from the Sherman tanks (bar the kill shots) to the front of the tank and the turret.

While I was at it with my camera,  I took some photos of the Panther as well.

I've been working again at last,  after some delay.  I have started on the T34/76 now, which I'll be building to resemble the Russian Gate Guards.

The T34 has been primed, ready for painting this week. I also put together a new shelf for the tanks to sit on display.

The T34/76 is airbrushed and ready for some weathering and details tomorrow!

And finished! A weather worn, outside display piece tank, rather than a battle worn tank as I usually do.

Nice.
When do we get the 1/35th scale Kremlin for it to stand in front of?

I can't finish the plinth until Hobbycraft reopen unfortunately, but I know what I'm buying when I go in to build it. Should be done by Christmas!

One Sherman Easy 8 kit + one radial engine kit = the biggest project I will have ever set myself.

I plan to try (keyword being try) to replicate the interior of the Sherman tank in 1/35 scale.  I have a kit of some crew on the way for Christmas and once I get some more plastic plate and putty I'll put my plan in motion!

Christmas has certainly been fruitful this year.  I've enough projects to keep me occupied for the rest of the year!

You do realise that the rest of the year means... TOMORROW. ????!!!????
That is a lot of work, even for you.
I take it that the basement is no longer flooded, or is that why you got the ship kit?

Let's just say we may as well have an indoor swimming pool now. After a short discussion, I've now permanently moved into the smaller but much warmer and much more comfortable dining room. And yes, the Bismarck shall set sail upon the tides of floor aneath, only to be scuttled and sit forever more on the surface of the tiles there!

I decided to make my first project of 2021 the Matilda 2 MK3. I'll be building the turret with the 2 pounder gun and colouring it in the funky Tunisia 3 tone camouflage.

You are truly waltzing along with that Matilda.
Good progress.
