in this case I don't think there'll be an issue, what an awesome looking model!

One quick question: does reconnaissance encompass observation types such as the Henschel Hs-126?

 

Cheers,

Adam.

I would say so, observation is another form of reconnaissance

This is creeping up on us and I've been thinking (always a bad idea!), I may have another crack at an AFV instead of my usual, and preferred, Wingy-Thingy(my previous two AFV featured GB's never got finished).  This time it'll be something on wheels, an IBG 1/35th Marmon Herrington MkII Armoured Car, with figures!  This is just a maybe mind and subject to change!

a change can sometimes do wonders, I had had really poor form with AFV's until I build the ZSU-57-2. It was the first AFV I'd manage to finish in under a year and a thoroughably enjoyable build it was too. So much so I'm building 5 this year!

 

It's a cool looking armoured car you've chosen, I look forward to seeing it in the build.

Hello to All

I think to enter in this GB with a FL 282 V-21 Kolibri 1/35 Miniart, not much seen !

that's an interesting choice. I've seen one of these built, they're a really nice model.

Hi All

 

I would be interested in entering with a Sherman Firefly if that is permissible as a tank killer.

 

Cheers

 

WW

I should think so, it was sometimes referred to as a "Tank Destroyer", and the 17 Pounder was an effective weapon against the Tigers and Panthers.

 

Welcome aboard.

Oh my word, things are getting out of hand.  :frantic:  

 

I've already made choices for each category in this GB.  That should be enough  - but nooooooo....   :banghead: 

 

I've had so much fun building Hellcats in the Grumman GB that I'm now seriously considering building an F6F-5P and F6F-5N in this GB...   :mental:

Hi Rich - as this GB is coming up - just checkin' 

 

Would this be acceptable in the recon quadrant for the GB??  (So far as I know, these aircraft were purely recon birds, and are kits that are very RARELY (if ever) seen built on the forum...)

Hi Philip,

 

that will be fine, that model was a dedicated Recon bird, super unusual and as you say rare. I've never seen one built before and didn't even know there was a model out their of one.

 

So go for it :thumbsup:  , it'll be great to see one of these built and in the gallery.

Hi Rich,

Is a Police Chopper acceptable in the Recon category? I know it's not technically 'reconnaisance' (more like observation) but thought I would ask.

Have plenty others that would qualify so no stress if not!

 

Cheers,

Dermot

It's been turned into the cutest little tank destroyer ever, hasn't it? I might change my mind when I start putting the tracks together - apparently they're individual links, which at this scale are going to be 3mm wide.

hmmm....not the sort of thing to come a cross a Tiger in!

 

Oh dear I just realised this is a 1/72nd scale model!!!! :yikes: I've been reading a review on one of them, yeah individual tracks and I reckon saying 3mm wide is being very generous for this scale!

 

This is a review of one of the other versions...
