Allen,
Belated congrats on your award. Just caught up on your build, still coming along great. Bottle of 20 year old malt on its way to you for your cold, but had to drink the contents to save weight on the postage.....
Cheers, Mike.

Good Evening Fine Folks Around The World,

So sorry that I have been quiet for a while. I have gotten over the cold and feel much better. I am still trying to get used to the time change too. I haven't stopped working on the Hanomags through the whole ordeal and have made progress. So,

Rick - I don't know Sir, but I thank you for the vote of confidence. I do hope to have it done next year, but not too late in the year!!!

Dude 2 - Thanks John and i am feeling way better except for Sunday night and you know about that...

Paul - Thanks too my man as there is no turning back now. Onward to the finish line someday!!!

Danny - You are much too kind Sir and you never need to apologise for being on vacation. A vacation is a wonderful thing and I hope you enjoy it to the fullest. I am afraid the rest of the vehicles will be pretty much OOB with the exception of resin tires and a couple of minor fixes. The Steyr was fun and a lot of work to boot. I still can't believe I won something for it though. Thanks my friend..

Stevie - Thanks buddy, I am feeling better and sometimes I forget what I am building too. Ok, it is a scene with a rocket on a launch platform being fueled and prepped for firing. In total, there will be 5 vehicles, 3 trailers, a V2 rocket and a launch platform (and maybe a partridge in a pear tree too). The Steyr supplied the juice for all the checks before fueling and the actual firing too. It will not be in the scene and was the hardest to build for the project. therefore I built it first...

Mike - Thank you Sir and it's great to hear from you. I hope all is well on your end and you are still modelling. I have missed those floppy ears around here too. Take care my friend…

So here we are with a little update. Starting last Wednesday night, still not being 100%, I started nipping parts off the sprues from the second Hanomag kit. I knew where all the parts went from doing the first one anyway...
IMG_1606.JPG On the next day, started to clean them all up and started gluing some of the sub-assemblies together. The Takom plastic is kind of soft and some of the attachment points are rather large. On Saturday, we were well on our way and they looked like this…
IMG_1607.JPG So with it underway, I broke out the hairy stick and painted a bunch of stuff like the interior, motor, exhaust and seats. On Sunday we had this…
IMG_1609.JPG Twins!!!!!!! Identical twins!!!!!!!!!! Ok, there are a lot more finished parts than in the pic. I have since glued the outer doors into the side panel frames and trimmed the inside doors to mate up with them. The inside door panels were painted dark gray too. They will be glued together after the outside is painted late war dark yellow...Ok, enough Blah-blah for tonight. I would normally have more pics. but it gets dark too early and I forget to take them.

More to follow and all abuse is welcome. Thanks again for looking in and Moggell on!!!...

Prost
Allen
