Did several gs already. That Is why I’ll do the F. Having old and new moulds in one kit is really great as you get almost a free tank to be build from spares after some time.

That would be great any if you can help, any info I can gather is a step closer to the result. My base kit is 1/72 if that helps ? Im not looking for a 100% exact replica but more something that looks like an M10. 

 

Just a quick update on the Airfix Magazine article. 

 

I took photos of the pages with the aim of downloading them onto the laptop and then uploading them to Flikr so they can be viewed here but the stupid iphone is not communicating with the laptop for some unknown reason. 

 

I’ll keep trying.

Am I too late to join in?

Been contemplating this for ages and decided to dip my toe in at the last minute. 

 

I have a Dragon Panther ausf D in 1/35, fairly vanilla but nothing to complex for a limited time build 🤞

 

Thanks

Nope just start a thread when the group build starts. I’ll add you to the list on page one.  Very honored that this will be your first group build. Just so you know, my primary rule is to have fun, if you finish bonus. If not as long as you enjoyed the time spent working on your build thats whats most important.

I have a few questions, as I'm new to this Group Build thingy...

 

What is the 25% rule ?

At what date should you start building ?

 

I really want to build one of these....

If you have already started making the model then only around 25% of it can be completed before the start date of the GB. If you are unsure if your have pasted the 25% mark, then you should post a picture of the model in it's current state & the GB host will give a ruling on if it is still eligible.

On a related matter, one of the options I have for this GB is the very old Tamiya Panther Ausf.A, which I had previously built to about 50% of OOB. I've decided I want to put some more effort into it though, so I've taken most of it apart & plan to rebuild it with extra scratch built & 3D printed parts. The current state of the model is below 25% OOB (only the basic turret parts are still in one piece), with all the extra scratch built stuff I plan to add it will be a much lower % in total. @Corsairfoxfouruncle I presume this wont be a problem with 25% rule?

Thanks for the help Mig, models that are more than 25% can be worked on along with your primary build. They only rule is they are not allowed into the gallery for voting. Let me see what you have done so far but if its just the turret It will most likely get in.

Okay.... Go ahead and sign me up lol.

If I can get everything I'll go for a late production Panther G, with a bad case of Barbers Stripe Syndrome.

I went ahead and ordered the Rye Field "Early" Late G, for the build. It should be here for next week, in time for the start.

They do a lot of interior kits. 
Fortunately this one is Without interior.

I have the full interior version of that kit & it's a beast, the box is about 3x the size of the Tamiya Panther kits etc. If the GB was longer I might have been tempted to built it, I can see it being a long project that would take me six months to slowly build though.

Solid Scale sell a painting mask for Daimler Benz factory camo that I can recommend. I've used a few of their other masks before & have that Daimler Benz set in my stash, I might using it during the GB but I haven't completely decided on what I'm going to build yet.

I’m certainly doing the MNH stripes, for the Group Build, but I do see a DB in my future lol
