Ofcourse it did.PP,she wasn't a modeler until after she hooked up with Big Daddy SturmTiger.
Started. I hope so it will be a big big surprise for everyone.
Finally after a bit of research I have settled on a kit.It's one I wanted to do initially.I intend to get building as soon as I get off line.
Well,I'm off to a great start.I should be done with the actual construction some time today.It's nice to be building something I don't have to wear.
Hi! Is there any possibilities to sign with a lend lease vehicle? Because my two years old son made a puzzle(nice little pieces) from my kits upper hull...and I havent got any suitable kits at home...
Any WWII vehicle is acceptable as long as you show it has been captured.
So in this case, i'm sorry, but i'm out. I havent got money for another kit now.
I am building a russian M10. There were not captured by any axis forces as I know. Anyway its a rarity, only one photo was taken during the world war.
If Russian M10's fought against the Germans or even Finland for that matter,there is the possibility that one could have been captured.That's all you need.You don't have to have proof.I personally would like to see that.
An american russian german Wolverine? This is almost a science fiction...
Anyway the facts are:
They equipped 1223rd SP Artillery (SU) Regiment in 29th Tank Cops and the 1239th SP Artillery Regiment in 16th Tank Corps; both formed in March 1944, got into action in June - July 1944...
52 were delivered to Russia.
I can see what can i do.
I wanted this particular build to require a bit of imagination,but most of all to be fun.I want to see that American,Russian,German Wolverine.I didn't know those were supplied under lend-lease as well.
Hey Guys! Boba Nette has decided to enter this build. It just didn't feel right not participating. It's in my blood. Good Luck to all that enter!
So far,so good.I've got my entry built and painted.Now it's on to weathering and detail painting.I must admit,this vehicle is looking very unique.There will be no doubt about who it now belongs to.
I really missed building tanks.After putting together space-suits and painting laser guns,it's good to be back home.
As I understand things so long as it's a theoretical possibility it's a goer, you could have a west european camo style painted Waffen SS Pershing tank if you want since it might have happened. OK it didn't, but it is possible that it might have occured.
Correct.Any WWII ground vehicle is eligible as long as there is the possibility it could have been captured.Also,the theater of operations must be accurate as well.Due to it's very late entry into the war,a Pershing would be tough to do.But I guess there is the chance one could have been over run by German troops.For my entry,I did a bit of research and came up with a background story supporting the the vehicle I'm building.
I might not be able to finish on time - we are in the process of buying a house (yippee!) but that means that we don't have much spare time.
See what you can get done Ricky.If you still need more time by January 1,let us know.We've extended the build deadlines before.I've said it before and probably will again,but you can't have a group build without a group.
So how are the builds progressing so far?I've got quite a bit done during the last week.I'm down to just a few fine points.My build is missing something and I can't figure out what it is.Oh well,plenty of time left.
I managed to open the box. :roll:
I have the lower hull assembled, and half the wheels on. And the turret is half built. I did that on 1st November...
