Tank Destroyer Group Build?
Posted by Anonymous on Saturday, November 13, 2004 8:38 PM
Not that I don't have enough on my plate as it is, but what would anyone think of starting up a tank destroyer group build sometime early-mid 2005?

I had brought that up in around July, but the post got some replies and then just died down. I would have to say that I would be in, depending on the time frame. Would it be open to all armies?

all types...... i don't know much about starting these kinds of threads, but I think it would be a good GB. Any army, should we say any era or keep it to WW2?

uh............. Confused [%-)]Confused [%-)]

do i HAFTA think on a sunday? Well, I guess it would be anything classified as a TD........ one wouldn't call an M10 or M18 a tank, they are TD's........ same for the Jadgtigers, hetzers, SU class............ if someone has a better description, please help me. Propeller [8-]

If it is a Mid-Summer start time I'd be a player. An SU or a Jadgpanther would be my choice.

I think that the gun shouldnt be towed, has to be on a chassis.

If it's mid 2005 I'm in... I've already got an Academt TD that would be great. Sounds like a great GB idea- I hope the replies start flowing in!

Sounds like fun. Starting the build after he Tiger would be a good idea, maybe leave some time to let the budget build back up a little.

The Tiger ends 6/8/05. Maybe overlapping the two builds by a month or so might not be too bad.

OKAY!!!! Just add a post or send me an email if your in..... If we set a start date of 6/1 would that work? I'll do DML's hetzer OR a Hellcat, not sure yet.

I'd like to add my name to the list. I already have the Academy Jackson and the Verlinden Details set on my Greatmodels wish list and Christmas and a March birthday are coming. The Elefant build ends 6/6, so late May or June would be fine. Pete

Oh man get out of my head!! I was just looking at a book today about building US tank destroyers.I was sorely tempted but thought nahh only if Im gonna do a specific kit. Now along comes the very excuse to get it.

I knew when I saw Dwight's completed Jackson about a month ago that I had to build that kit. Now I have an excuse. If it comes out half as good as his, I'll be happy.

Should we throw this thread over to the armor forum? It seems to have lost steam after a good start. Just a thought.

you'll have to start a new thread in the armor forum. It will probably pic up more speed in there.
still dont know what i want to build. It will definetly be something german, maybe a Marder III or Jagpanther.
