  1. Hello All, I have been looking at all of the group builds on Britmodeller the last week or so thinking what ones can I join (I would like to join a few but I must be realistic). My modelling time has been short of late as in August I was made redundant from my job when the 80% furlough scheme finished (yeah - funny that!) and I then started another job 3 weeks later (yes I know I was lucky there). I have thanked my old place of employment for playing for my holiday with my redundancy money and the deposit for a new car (70 plate Nissan Juke if you must know). I now work for the Fire Brigade in their IT deptartment - I love it there. The work/life balance is amazing compared to my last place and I am enjoying the challenge - however it also means I am dead to the world when I get home. So I thought I would enter the longest running/just started GB with what I am hoping will be an easy build! As I understand it, SAM's are allowed in this GB? With that assumption in mind I have picked out the Trumpeter SAM-6 from the stash. I thought I would break up the aircraft models with this little beastie. Not much to look at huh? Onto the sprues... exciting! I am going to go for the Polish one as that seems interesting to me for some reason. Can anyone make heads or tails of that? I know my record on previous GB's isn't the best, but I do have to admit I did finish the model in my last GB I joined the "model kit you built as a kid" one. I just haven't posted any pictures of it... see below. Those micro-missiles really do bug me. I might look at them in a few years. So the plan is to get a simple kit done and painted. I do have another idea for this one, but I will need to see if the Postman is kind to me. Kind regards, Dazz
  2. This should keep you NATO boys on your toes. I picked this kit up a number of years ago and I might as well pull it out. I'm only in 2 other Group Builds, what's one more! It looks pretty good in the box, although I've said that about Trumpeter kits before and been burned, so we shall see. I will build a Czech one, just because it's camouflaged as the Russian one is straight green.

  5. Camouflage & Markings, Eastern Front 1943 Scale Armour Modelling This is a first for SAM Publications, a book on the armoured fighting vehicles of the Eastern Front in the Spring and Summer of 1943, which is when the Battle of Kursk took place. Starting with the background of 1943, it moves on to explain tank production of both sides, including numbers built, numbers of lend lease etc. Of particular interest is the chapter concerning German regulations over colours and their usage. The photographs are refreshingly new, some are familiar but the majority are not to this reviewer at least. There is even a Willis jeep in yellow camouflage and in use by the German army. The colour plates are scattered throughout the book and show familiar vehicles such as Tigers, T-34s, and Panthers, but there are also SPG’s, halftracks, anyone fancy building a green Matilda? There are a number plates for tanks used at Kursk, with their unit markings, camouflage and charts of army components for both sides. There is also a summary of events of how the battle was fought. Conclusion Although this book only has sixty five pages it is packed with useful information, particularly for the modeller with some very unusually coloured vehicles that would make great subjects to model. As a first publication in this field SAM have set the bar high and I look forward to seeing what else they decide to publish. Highly recommended. My thanks to Dave Wardle, (Panzer Vor!!!) for reviewing this book. Sample provided with thanks from SAM Publications
