Russian armor group build feeler
Posted by ManCityFan on Monday, November 06, 2017 12:17 PM

I am thinking about starting a Russian armor group build, but there seem to be a lot of GB's going on right now, so before I work on a badge, I thought I would see if there is interest.  I am thinking this would be a 1 year GB, starting early 2018.  Open to all Russian armor, any scale. 

Let me know if you are interested.

Thanks,

D

I just started a T-55. Maybe 10% complete. I would love to join. It's in Ethiopian service however. Is that ok?

  Being fairly new on the forum, I am not sure what the "norm" is.  I don't have an issue with it.  What kit, and how far along are you?  I would be more inclined to say OK if you are still in the construction phase.

Hadn't even thought of that.  They did export a ton of armor.  I think to get as many folks involved as possible, Soviet armor in exported for foreign service would be fine.  10% complete seems reasonable to allow.

So there does seem to be enough interest for me to at least start working on a group badge.  This should be interesting.  My computer skills aren't what they used to be.

Well, I've defaulted on a pile of GBs this year but I have been working on a couple pieces of Soviet/Russian heavy metal so this should be doable. Are you allowing light construction or do you want us to start cold with an entirely new kit? I should be able to go either way.

The rules are really up to you for group builds.  You can be more liberal and open or specific.  The rules will define how much interest and follow you get.

I am in the construction phase.  Still will be into january before the t34 sees paint.

OK, I think we have enough interest to do this.  I settled on a year because that gives plenty of opportunity to join in later.  I will start a new thread with the rules.  I will allow crossovers (although I don't really see much that would fit for the GB as a crossover) and started kits in the construction phase.  

If anyone has computer skills, and wants to help with a GB, feel free.  I found some WWII propaganda posters that will work with some modification, but I would also like one with modern armor on it, as this seems to be more popular.

Thanks for the interest.  This should be fun!

In my opinion the easiest way to post photos here is using USE.com. there are plenty of other options however.
