Hey everyone.  This is my first post ever.  I have recently gotten back to modeling after some time off and would like to share my WIP.  This is my first major work ever and I figured that sharing my progress would keep me on track to finishing this project. 

This project is a MG Kampfer that I picked up a long time ago.  I’ve tried to finish this kit a couple of times and got distracted with other projects.  This time I'm out for blood and intend on finishing this kit in style.  I don't have much to post because I just started but here is a pic of what the model looks like in its current form and a link to my blog where I will be keeping track of my progress in detail.  Anyway thanks for reading.  Oh and I would enjoy any tips or support along the way.

This looks really interesting, and is a great use of other parts.

I like where you're headed. Looks cool so far.
Id like to pick up some home casting tips for random parts too.
Cheers.

Hey guys, thanks for the comments and encouragement.  As far as casting goes, I learned what I know from reading and experimenting a lot.  Advance of Z book 1 has a good casting technique.  I recent found a translated version on Mecha Skunk.  http://www.mechaskunk.com/16.htm
Anyway, my WIP is moving slowly.  I want to be farther, but I am happy with my results. I’ve worked on the feet, shoulders and main engine.  Here is a wide shot of the Kampfer with the engine parts and tanks mocked up so that I could check the overall look of the model. 
As always, I am open to comments.
