Enzo and I have had a bit of a chat and we have decided that this STGB will run

From: Saturday 6th February 2021 to: Sunday 9th May 2021

 

That gives everyone a good couple of years to practice their modelling skills in all the other AFV STGBs that are happening - so we have perfected our skills ready for the Pz.III GB in February 2021! :thumbsup:

 

If you want to take part and haven't signed up already, please let us know below!

 

Kind regards,

 

Stix

Is anyone else a bit freaked out that we're organising GBs two years in the future?!?!  :yikes:

 

I intend building a Panzer III Ausf B in 1/35 from the Mini Art kit.   It's a bit of an odd version, as it has eight road wheels per side, like a Panzer IV.

I have to say I was a bit freaked it was two years away but there's plenty of other AFV GBs to keep us occupied in the meantime.

 

With regards the MiniArt kit - I have the same kit - is it this one?

If it is - it's a really great looking kit and I love the fact it has all the additional track armour and comes with stowage boxes.

 

I'm tempted to make that kit too but then I have all these kits in the stash to chose from too!:

And finally the one I think I'm going to make at the moment...........maybe.......:

Mine is 35221.  It doesn't have all that extra armour, but it does have a crew.

Right. These kits are part of the trial series of A to D versions. Your's looks to be mostly similar to mine bar the figures in yours and the extra tracks and stowage in mine.

The track assembly is really scaring me.  :door:  I though my current Panzer IV build was bad enough with its separate track links, but this one has seperate track links and two track pins per link.  That's just insane! :mental:

Yes but thats the way it seems to be working/heading ? Ive temporarily decided to stop suggesting new builds. This is because im currently hosting 3 builds and co-hosting 1 in the next 2 years. That may be added to with a 4th build if i get one more sign-up in the British armor build i have going ?

I suppose the problem we are going to have is that, because this GB is currently due to happen so far in the future, people are going to forget about it in the meantime.

 

So I have been thinking (a concern - yes I know! :banghead:) : 

If you have thoughts as to what you might build for this STGB then please post up some details below - including photos if available.

We could start collecting links to suitable Pz.III reference material.

 

If anyone has any other ideas please let us know.

 

Kind regards,

 

Stix

Stix,

 

 I'm up for this one but I will forget, just as I did with the Panzer IV one.  So if it is ok I'll tag along nearer the time.

No problem. I have added you to the list in post #1 and I will do like I did with the Pz.IV STGB and contact everyone a while before the GB starts.

Kind regards,

I will probably build one of the other Pz.IIIs and post the odd update photo in this thread.

People at the least could post actual Panzer III photo’s occasionally to bump the thread to the top ? I am always doing research. I occasionally find stuff not related to my subject matter mixed in. If i find any good Panzer III Pictures i will post them here.

Playing devils advocate....

 

If at its heart a STGB is just a thread where folk come together to build the same or similar subjects. Then if you promote builds into a thread

 

Aren’t you then basically conducting a GB but over a 2 year time frame???

 

The issue is there are lots of great ideas for GB’s and if promoted well and actively you can get the numbers to reach the threshold. 

 

The issue is there isn’t enough time to fit em all in hence the 2 year wait for it to begin.

 

I agree keeping the interest in the GB you have right now active and engaged over a 2 year period is a significant challenge.

Very good point! Hadn’t thought of it that way - wasn't my intention at all but I can see why it could be seen that way. I have taken it out of my original post. You could edit out of yours or it may look like it's still an option.

Kind regards,

Stix

Hi Srđan. No need to worry - this Single Type Group Build already has the necessary people signed up for it to go ahead. STGBs need 25 people signed up for them to happen. I have added you to the list in the first post at number 29. Full GBs need 30 people signed up plus they also have to get through end of year voting - known as the 'bunfight'.

And no need to worry about getting ready before the start date of this STGB......to avoid clashing with other AFV STGBs this Pz.III STGB doesn't start until February 2021!

I'm looking forward to following your 1/72nd project. 

Kind regards,

Stix

Oh, I permuted STGB and GB necessary numbers.

Anyway, I'm looking forward to start of this GB ;)

 

Thanks for putting me on the list Stix!

 

Cheers,
