At this point I have no idea what I might be building for this campaign but I have enlisted.

Most likely I will be finishing my Oshkosh Mk??? 8x8 LHS or my Mk??? 4x4, or both!

I would like to start that big WWII Australian flightline crain based on a CCKW but I am very loaded up with projects right now!

I'll be building one of these...
A what-if StuG VI using a Tiger 1 (P)*
A what-if StuG VI using a Tiger 1 (steel wheels)*
A Field Work Truck using an Opel Blitz
A what-if Allied SPG using a M3 Stuart and armed with a 6dr.

*the StuG VI is not to be confused with a JagdTiger.

Thanks for your question,Matt!

The build must be painted to be considered finished.
Weathering is optional.

Hope this helps,

Well heck - seeing this pop up...I'm "scratching" to get building! To do my first build, I've got to do some heavy duty cutting on a kit...and the weekend is here...hmmm...and I have a full box of sharp #11's......I might just start!

If this disqualifies me, maybe I'll do something else for the campaign...if not, I just took a pic of a pristine, 1/25 scale, Revell Chevy truck body....for proof it's a new build!

Happy weekend fellow model builders!

Cheers,

Nick

Nick,

Grabing your knife now does not disqualify you.

Just be carefull with this sharp #11's
Two days ago one of mine rolled down the working table and punched my compressor hose...

Hi Angel - ok - thx -

And you're right - now my worlds of work and hobby are colliding - safety...at work, safety is a constant subject of awareness - though I spend much of my time in an office!

Home though, on a nice Saturday - a different story! Lol - the sharp #11, saw, pin vise, cutters - as much as I'm begging to make a joke about it all, a slip with the knife can really do some damage to a finger, hand (a compressor hose) etc! It hurts, is messy, and generally should be avoided!

Yes - being careful when building a model makes plenty of sense!

Cheers,
Nick

Does the scratch build have to be armor?

I am thinking about scratch building a catapult for my nearly finished Arado 196.

Any subject, Mike!
(I intend to build-among other things- an ZIF-55 compressor).

So- flying, crawling, sailing, roaring by, supporting or just pumping air- all these mechanisms fit in.

A door that is wide open!

Plenty of time till May 1st, but...

Here is what I definetely will build for this Campaign.
A ZIF-55 Compressor Trailer in 1/35th scale.



It will be the early version- where a ZIS-120 engine drove a 4 piston V-shaped compressor.
Been eyeballing some "donor" kits lately-an ZIS-151 truck by HobbyBoss and MiniArt's ZIS-5 wheels set.

I intend to build the Compressor Trailer open- can't stand showing all the beauty inside.
