Cool cool. I wish I could help with the badge but my computer graphic design skills are nil. I want to see someone build that Soviet tank with a bunch of turrets and about a block long. I don't know the designation or if any kit is even out there. That would be something to see!

"Thanks Mancity for starting this GB. It will be my first."

Hey Griffin, you are welcome.  Honestly, I did this for totally selfish reasons.  Just finished a T-34 (and got my first badge), have plenty of Russian green paint, several Russian armor models, and wanted to do another one.  The T-34 was a lot of fun to build.  Figured if I started a GB, I would get the badge.

Plus, I really like watching armor builds.  Win, win, win.

Dwayne, if you're ok then with some construction work already done then I'd like to bridge the gap between Route62's T-34 and Griffon25's T-55.

 

Roster updated.  Glad to have you aboard!

Cliff,

Great looking kit friend. Like an idiot I passed this one up at a yard sale a few weeks ago for three other kits. I will be watching you with this one.

I'm in. 1/35 Tamiya T-55 in Ethiopian service during the 1998-2000 Eritrean Ethiopian war. Might not use the Trumpeter crew however. I'm looking at it and it's pretty shoddy. Thanks Mancity for starting this GB. It will be my first. I have to say I enjoy Premier League football and Man City's win against QPR a few years ago was probably the most incredible sporting event I have ever seen! 

 

 

 

 

 

Roster updated.  Looking forward to seeing this build as well. 

Yeah, the win over QPR was the greatest sporting event of my life.  Hurt myself celebrating Aguero's goal.  Have a special about that season on my DVR I plan to put on disc.  Have to watch it every once in a while.

Russian Armor Group Build November 2017 - November 2018
Posted by ManCityFan on Monday, November 06, 2017 8:27 PM

Comrade, welcome to the Russian Armor Group Build.  This Group Build is intended to show off the many variants of Russian armor past and present.  The build is open to all armor produced in Russia, including exports.  Soviet armor is seen throughout the world, so if you want to work on a tank exported to the Middle East, that is fine.

Rules:

OOB or detailed like crazy, your choice.

Any scale welcome.  Come on, let's see some braille scale! 

Crossovers are welcome.

In Progess in the construction phase is OK. 

Works in progress pics are a must.  We want to see what you all are doing!

The group build officially starts November 7, 2017, and ends November 7, 2018.  You may join any time you like as long as the build is done by 11/7/18.

When joining, please let me know what manufacturer, scale, and subject you will be building.

I will maintain the roster, and a finished model post.

First Group Badge for modern armor builders:  Thanks Hunter for the pic!

Next Group Badge for WWII builds:

And one more for Cold War armor:  Thanks again to Hunter for the Pic!

Most important of all, have fun.
