Pz.III STGB - LESS THAN 4 WEEKS!! Starts Saturday 6th February


Recommended Posts

After what seems like an incredibly long time since I proposed this much anticipated Single Type Group Build, it is now only four weeks until the start day - Saturday 6th February!

 

The following 43 members are already signed up - are you all ready for the off?:

@Ozzy, @Corsairfoxfouruncle, @SleeperService, @fatfingers, @German Armour, @vppelt68, @GREG DESTEC, @bigfoot, @SoftScience, @Robert Stuart, @Yetifan, @Retired Bob, @sdk_uk, @Foxbat, @exdraken, @Chrissy_J, @John, @the South African, @Bullbasket, @ridinshotgun, @AgentG@ijs302, @stevej60, @Bonhoff, @nimrod54, @Silver Fox, @badger, @srkirad, @sampanzer, @witjas4, @Jasper dog, @Rob S, @klr, @modelling minion, @SimonT, @shelfspace, @Mig Eater, @M3talpig, @Longbow, @robw_uk, @Ned, @Six97s and @Andy J

 

I apologise if I have missed anyone off the list. If anyone else wants to take part please just let me know. The actual chat thread for this GB can be found here:

 

 

I'm still not absolutely sure what kit(s) I'm going to make..........I have changed my mind many more times than the number of Pz.III kits I have.......which is a lot!!......but probably not as many as some people! :frantic:

 

Kind regards,

 

Stix

Ready for the off.
Very tempted to build one of my StuGs now - with a Panzer III on its way (last heard of in Duisburg), I will have too many kits to complete in the GB time frame.

Hi Stix. I was ready to go, but the kit that I have, is the Dragon lll M/N, and it's a bit of a dog in places. Turns out that it can trace it's origins back to Gunze Sangyo in 1987....and it shows. So I am in the process of ordering a Tamiya 1/48th Stug lllG, and hopefully, it will be with me long before the kickoff.

Stay safe and well.

Hi thanks for the reminder, I wanted to build a 1/35 panzer but haven't found one yet but I have a 1/48 stug to hand which is tempting me so just about ready

Mine's all set as its the only one in the stash and I'm building it OOTB, makes a refreshing change knowing what I'm doing and having all I need!

Hi Craig. That sounds perfect to me! I'm quite jealous of you and Andy - I have waayyy too many and it's now difficult to chose which to build. I have some 1/35 kits that I really want to spend a lot of time on - probably quite a bit longer than the three months of a STGB - and, whatever I chose from the 1/48 or 1/72nd versions I have, I need to keep in mind I'm hosting this GB and want to make sure I spend more time checking out everyone else's builds as well. I'm gravitating towards a couple of 1/48 Tamiya Stug IIIs at the moment.

No problem!! Glad it was useful.

I'm also thinking about making a 1/48 Tamiya Stug III. Which one are thinking of making?....and Friul tracks!.....I'm a bit jealous!! They should take it to another level.

I may start with the Ausf.B version if I do go down the 1/48 route. I've also got the G version - Kit No.32525 - which I will start if I think I have time enough to do two.

And good luck with your Panther! Hope you get it finished okay.

Hi Robert. Great to hear you are ready - I always enjoy your builds. I too am thinking about going down the Stug route and it sounds like you have the same problem as me with too many to chose from.

Hi John. Sorry your Dragon kit isn't a suitable project for this GB and I hope your 1/48 Tamiya Stug turns up in time. I look forward to seeing what you do with it - your detailing skills always takes your builds to the next level.

Thank you and take care too.

No problem.

It looks like there are going to be a lot of 1/48 projects in this GB which, I think, is good news! I really enjoy Tamiya's 1/48 kits. I'm looking forward to following your build.

Hi Steve. I've heard the Takom kits are supposed to be really good. I'm looking forward to seeing your skills take it to the next level! :thumbsup:

Just as a re-cap I have bought this especially for this GB, ignoring the half dozen already in the stash! :whistle:

IMG_1431

It turns out that this is a re-box of the Dragon kit of the Stuh 42 which I already had in my stash :doh: But this means I can build both options, the Stug IIIG and the Stuh 42. :thumbsup:

AM is turned metal barrels with brass muzzle brakes and resin mantlets.  Roll on Saturday the 6th February.

I’m all set to Rock ‘N’ Rolla.....

 

I have too many Pz III and Stug variants than I wish to admit to, at this point.

Lee, you're in a safe place, amongst friends, just admit that you have a model addiction.  I felt better after I did, come on now, be honest, we will not judge you......so come on, how many? :fight:
