Consider this your invitation to reply to the Weekly Update, with a post of some of your work, whether completed or "in progress" of kits, figures, and dioramas.

This is not a private club or group, anyone and everyone can add to the thread, & is openly encouraged to do so.

All skill levels are encouraged to participate, & everything Braille and relating to this forum is in scope.

There is no need to write a "short story" to accompany any work submitted, though some notes about what you are posting is usually useful (though you may write at length if you wish) and queries for assistance, opinions or advice with a build or kit are encouraged.

Comments are encouraged, be they suggestions, tips, advices, hints, warnings of kit or instruction deficiencies, questions, etc, with the proviso they show the level of respect to the poster and the work they have taken the time to show us, that is customary on the forum.

The intention is that a new WEEKLY UPDATE is created each week on the same day, to allow people to post new pictures and updates of their work, as the original will "move down" and will be hard to find after a week.

The WEEKLY UPDATE is not intended to change how people already use the forum, though anyone is welcome to add their updates and comments, its intent is to draw a few of those who work away on braille scale subjects and seldom or never post, to share some of what they do each week, for the inclusion and enlightenment of all forum visitors and regulars.

The Hall of Shame thread should be here but for some reason it decided it wanted to go elsewhere. Never mind you can read it above...

In completing my German collection this week I received the MMS PzKfw II D and the Marder 7,62 mm (r) II D. Maybe ACE or MACO will go for these one day but I couldnt wait
The MMS PzKfw II D Flamingo SdKfz 122 was built November 1992 so had to wait a long time for its fellow II Ds
I still hope the coming years will finally bring us (in normal plastic kitform) the early variants of all German main tanktypes : Pz I A, Pz II a,b,c and D/E, Pz III A,B,C,D,E and F, Pz IV A,B,C and a decent Panther D. Is that too much to ask ??

Good going Angelo! How far are you with collecting those Lebanese decals? What cammou scheme will the M 113/ZSU combi get? On the net I 've seen some pretty fancy ones!

I commend you on building white metal kits; that is one medium I'm afraid to tackle. I also love the camo pattern on the third one. Way to go man!

We are modelers - the same in spirit, in hunger to insanely buy newly released kits, hustlers in hiding our stash from our better halves and experts in using garbage as replacements for after-market parts.

Although I must say the miller's daughter seems quite well endowed. Still, brilliant work; you've got some mad skills man!
