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.

Update on the Resin model votes : Nothing is realy decided yet as serveral kits have been named, some twice... Please keep voting, as I will have to decide somewere tomorrow.

WIP are some Mice (Pegasus and Dragon). Been working on those for 5 years now....Panzertracts was a great help though the Kubinka Mouse engine deck is still puzzeling me. I am still looking for a clear picture that shows the forward engine deck of Mouse # one. But I will get there..someday..

Since my diorama "Taking the Scenic Route" is finished.

I decided to step on the brakes and stop adding more details to it because I feared
that it would never be finished if I continued so I threw the "details to add" list
in the dustbin and took the week off instead

The diorama will feature in an upcoming issue of Military Modelcraft International.


Cheers

Sven-Åke

This week, aside from the ambulance GB, i´ve been working on the crew and tank riders for my KV-1S. I´m trying to replicate this photo.

I constructed the figures and started the painting process. I´ve also started on the weathering, but there´s a lot to do still. Here´s a WIP pic.

I would also like to thank Piotr Wypiór for his help with interpreting the banner. (It was back in 2008, but anyway, thanks!)
All comments are welcome as usual.
