The first Armour Single Type Group Build on Britmodeller was the M3/M4 Medium Tank STGB back in 2018. There's just been a conversation in the Panzer III STGB that we need another Sherman STGB. I'm sure there's lots of suitable kits in our stashes.

 

Anyone interested?

 

I'll start a list - just in case:

01. PlaStix (Host)

02. fatfingers

03. Corsairfoxfouruncle (Co-host)

04. bigfoot

05. robw_uk

06. Robert Stuart

07. Bonhoff

08. TEMPESTMK5

09. JackG 

10. Ted

11. klr

12. Bullbasket

13. Jasper Dog

14. Could be you...

Count me in.  I plan to dip my toes into armor for the first time at some point this year with Tamiya’s 1/48 kits and I think this would be a good reason to set aside the Easy Eight that’s currently in the mail and get my feet wet first with the regular M4 and M10 TD.  Hopefully then with a couple under my belt I won’t embarrass myself!

Hi Matt. Great that you are interested in taking part in this possible GB and Tamiya 1/48 AFV kits are a good starting point for building armour models. Be warned though......some find armour modelling very addictive........once you've built one, you just have to build another! Ask me how I know!!

I have added you to the list in my first post.

Kind regards,

Stix

Hi Ben. Great to have you along for this GB too - if we get it through the voting at the end of the year! I have added you to the list as well.

 

We only need 9 more people to sign up for this STGB to get it through to the voting at the end of the year!

 

Anyone else interested?

 

Kind regards,

After accidentally assembling the majority of the M10 kit the other day (funny how time just flies) I may or may not have already added a couple 1/35 kits to the stash :whistle:.  The Easy Eight may not last til 2022 but I’ll have several other options to pick from if this GB makes it through.

So long as you don't mind whitemetal, I'm sure I could rustle up a little diorama for this build. I sacrificed a couple of Shermans to an Ardennes beast in the Panther GB, perhaps it is time they got their revenge...

Would vehicles based on the RAM tank be included? Are they a close enough relative of the M4 as I’ve got a kangaroo I’m tempted to build for this? If not, there’s plenty more actual M4’s in the stash!

Hi Tim. Yes - whitemetal kits are definitely okay. I have added you to the list in the first post. It would be great to have one of your dioramas built as part of the GB.

Hi bigfoot. Yes - an M3 or M4 Kangaroo will be appropriate for this GB. :thumbsup:

Kind regards,

I’d really like to join in this one but I have nothing in the stash, but I’m sure I can rustle something up by next year. I wouldn’t mind an M10 I think Airfix have a nice new one ( well new boxing anyway I think it’s Acadamies kit)

Hi Marklo. Thank you for your interest in this STGB. I have added you to the list in my first post. Hopefully you will be able to find something suitable if and when this GB runs.

Hi Peter!! Thank you!! You are a star!! Thanks to you (....well.....and the other 24 modellers who signed up before you!) we have have enough to get this Single Type Group Build into the voting at the end of the year!! You can take credit for being the 25th signup.....I'm sure fame and glory will follow!

 

I will mention to @Enzo Matrix that we have 25 signups and hopefully he can add us to his list of GBs in the vote at the end of the year.

 

Anyone else interested in taking part? The more the merrier!!

 

Kind regards,
