Enlisting for service with the ICM 1/35th Sd.Kfz. 251 Ausf A. Be nice to see how these ICM kits compare to other 251's as well as get an early version on the completed shelf.

Du bist entschuldigt.

Let me check the stash. I'm not sure what scale or subject to do. I might have to assign every kit a number and roll the D and D dice to decide. Leaning toward the 1/48th Skybow Late Tiger.

What are the ground rules? Same as the other group builds? Do we need to start fresh or can work be lightly (less than 25%) started? Just curious. This is only my second group build but have been watching from the sidelines. My first was this year's Weekend Madness.

Those are super cool looking GB badges! Will an 8 rad car qualify? Just got this from the Dragon sale and it's a beauty.

Daddyman - Yes a kit that is 25%-30% built is fine. Also, nice work on the Hurricane it came out nicely even with the painting trouble.

plasticjunkie - It was made in Germany and is armored so it counts.

Okay, I’m in! I’ll likely be doing more than one, but I will start off with the Pzkw. 1-B from Testors/Italeri in 1:35 scale.

I was planning on revisiting the Tamiya SdKfz 7/1 8-ton halftrack w/ flakvierling on New Year’s Eve (a tradition started by a friend).  The model was one of my earliest Tamiya builds, and I have fond memories of it, even though I just sloshed white paint on the bare plastic to get the winter whitewash effect.

I have secured a fresh kit, and although I wanted to do a nostalgia build, I have succumbed to AMS and have aftermarket tracks, gun barrels, and PE.  I know there are other more modern kits of the subject, but I really wanted to have that “Tamiya feeling” again.

So please put me down for a Tamiya 1/35 SdKfz 7/1.

How do you feel about paper panzers? I don't have many tanks in the stash, but I do have a P.1000 I wouldn't mind taking a stab at if it's accepted.

Think I will start with the Mongram PzkwIV. I have a 1/32 crew commander in mind for this kit.

 

If I don't get sidetracked, I wll attempt to complete the Tamiya 1/16th Leopard A4. It's one of the oldest kits in my stash going back to when I picked it up around 1988 when stationed at MCAS Futenma

 

And if I have any time remaiing, I will try and take on the Meng King Tiger and it's Interior Set   Just looking at the interior set looks daunting.

1/144. I didn't know they made a 1/72- that would be a BEAST of a kit! I'll have to keep my eye out for it.

I didn't know either until i saw it, i think it was a Meng kit. It was a beast of a box, almost £90.

It looks huge. The 1/144 is as big as two 1/35 panzer's on it's own. HLJ has it for $85+ shipping... I just might have to grab it once I see how I'm sitting after the Christmas season.

Quick question- which GB badge would be appropriate for the Ratte? WWII or General? 

 

I wish! No, it's the Takom 1/144 with the two Maus'. As long as it fits your rules, that'll be my entry.
