    I'm not sure how long it took,but I've got 24 links put together so far.It's very tedious,but the parts all fit like they should.

    Done!Approximately 490 pieces were used in constructing the tracks.It was actually quite fun and satisfying.

    Hello, fellow modelers I have officially completed my tank destroyer. It is a polish SU-85 with a winter chamo. I look forward to hearing each and everyone of your output in regards to my latest efforts. This in hopes of my getting better each and everytime. I look forward to seeing everyone's entry, and to my fellow ladies. Try it, you just may like it.

    I'm hoping to be finshed in a couple more days. I have to apply decals, track grouser rack (it fits over some decals so it must be last part to be glued on), then some weathering.

    Well, I'm afraid I won't be finishing on time. The real world in the shape of work and family has once again intervened and it's been a mad month that looks set to continue to April. I only got as far as cleaning up parts for assembly :cry:

    Sadly, much the same here. I doubt I'll get mine finished. I do have the upper hull done, and the lower hull, wheels, tracks etc ready for assembly, but time is not on my side. :(

    yeah that may be a good idea. I think I can have my tank finished in time, it's really down to the very details now. but it would be kinda sad if only few of our contestors can make the deadline in time.

    Ricky, what do you think of postponing?

    End of the month would help me out as well.
