  1. P -51 MUSTANG STGB IV for 2019 ? @18 on 17/11

    I’m interested too!
  2. Italeri 1/35 Landrover 109

    Great looking Land Rover. I have one of those on order.
  3. 1/35 Soviet T-24 Tank

    Looks great. Nice to see that Hobbyboss is investing time in interwar subjects, however obscure.
  4. Meng and Takom Panthers

    Having never built or even bought a Panther, I might be tempted by Meng kit. They both certainly look excellent kits. I am sure there will be plenty of online analysis!
  5. M3/M4 Medium Tank STGB

    Given the complexity of some individual track sets for the Sherman, I think that they can be excluded from that 25% rule. Anyone who completes a set of Bronco tracks deserves a medal!
  6. Meng Soviet T-10M

    Your T-10M looks great. Really clean build. I have one of these in my stash as well and well impressed with the mouldings. Incidentally these weren`t used in combat as such but were involved in the Prague Uprising of 1968 in Czechslovakia......
  7. SMW 2017 Telford 11th & 12th November

    I havent been to Telford in many years and will go again sometime in the future. However from what I have read, it sounds like there are issues with car parking and queue. Maybe a move to a bigger venue with parking is required? NEC? But I guess that would be down to cost......Im not a member of IPMS go cant chip in too much.
  8. M3/M4 Medium Tank STGB

    I would suggest that if ONLY one of the following is complete it is allowed to be entered. 1: Basic six bogies. 2: Basic hull but no fittings. Tools, hatches etc 3: Basic turret including barrel but again no other fittings. The suspension is such a significant part of a Sherman build particulary DML and Academy kits, I don't think more than that would be allowed on a started kit.
  9. How do I post Pictures?

    Test photo!
  10. M3/M4 Medium Tank STGB

    20-25 % sounds good!
  11. M3/M4 Medium Tank STGB

    As co host of this group build can I ask if partially started kits can be submitted at the commencement of the GB? I would think about no more 20% of a kit started? I have to confess on self interest here having a few started M4 series kits!
  12. M3/M4 Medium Tank STGB

    Take at look at Lucky Model. They ship Legend Resin sets free worldwide!
  13. M3/M4 Medium Tank STGB

    There are some good projects being planned and good to see a Sexton in the offing as well. On the subject of aftermarket tracks, much like many of Broncos products, the Sherman tracks are incrediably fiddly. Sherman kits have been blighte for years but substandard tracks. However the most recent Tasca/Asuka and Tamiya tracks are good. I would be reluctant to using metal tracks as Sherman tracks were what were know as "live" tracks so didnt sag like Panther, Tiger and T34 tracks. Panda tracks are very good. http://www.shermantracks.com/ AFV Club also make a selection of tracks as well for the M4 series. Remember that many of these track sets had rubber shoes so there was no metallic contact with the road surfice. Also they all had rubber surfaces running against the road wheels with possible exception of T66 which was the first tyoe used on the HVSS.
  14. Wonderful Scooter!
  15. Bristol Type 175 Britannia 1/144

    Beautiful Britannia. Flying to Havana from Prague on that route must have been labourious.
