Sorry for the delay in starting, I got a bit distracted.
Although I was in two minds whether to do the missing Christmas special this month instead.

As usual, you have seven days to submit your modelling marvels, it's free to enter, for anyone, apart from last month's winner.
You only have to submit some pictures and/or videos up to a total of eight visual representations, plus a summery of anything you've done, or had done to the model.

Please find this month's dedicated chat thread here.

NUMBER 1

Finally, something new to Submit: My Late War Jagdtiger with MovieTone paint scheme. This is a Repair, Upgrade and Detail Build from a stock Torro IR Metal Version. All the touchy touchy stuff including paint and weathering was done by yours truly (with a Shout Out! to Jon's Magic Grime). The Markings are from Rad's Always Excellent Stencils.

NUMBER 3

I enjoy TOTM and want to see more of you put in your truly good work. I am putting in my cold Russian winter morning KV-1. Electronics? Well, I did switch it to Taigen with the Russian 12-Cylinder sound.

C'mon: it's time to show Herr Doc. how to really build and weather an AFV.

NUMBER 4

Sorry Dr. Herr Professor, I wasn't going to submit this month until I saw your Winter KV. I have one too! Of course, it's a fish out of water here in Southern California. No snow to pose it in. (Oh darn!)

Mine was a static KV sold "for collectors", no electronics and just basic mechanics - plastic gears and tracks. I added a speaker and main board. This is my first foray into using chipping fluid. The biggest modification, the reason I started this tank in the first place however, was to reroute the smoke exhaust. The original vents are solid, but there is a hollow metal aftermarket replacement. Easy, just plug them in. Nay, nay! The gearbox is so close to the deck I had to fashion a brass detour for the exhaust tube. It works, as you'll see.

The protrusion in some of these sots is the IR receiver used in battles.

Blow it, I have quite few jokes sent to me by women about the failings of husbands, far too many of them aren't suitable for posting :{

Hot construction safety tip number 2

Falling asleep at the top of a ladder is as dangerous as falling asleep at the wheel. Never take a nap at the top of a ladder.
