Not to steal Sabot's thunder, but the summer solstice is upon us. Time to start building. I have a Panzerspahwagen (Panhard 178) on the bench.

Well Heck - I woke up this morning to the blare of the Trumpets sounding the start of this Campaign! Thank Big Jim for setting up the new Campaign Forum too you guys - it will make managing these activities easier for all!

I'm heading off to see a matinee showing of The HULK - if it blows, I'll really come back raring to dive into my BT-7!

Model On - and you CWCO Campaign guys - finish those models first !

AWESOME!!!! I already have the turret ready on my KV-1e. The whole Tamiya kit is an easy build, the only thing that will take time will be cleaning up and assembling the aftermarket tracks and wheels. You can check the Campaign folder for updates.

No tank rollout expected here soon... but I may yet be a late joiner !
In the meanwhile, thanks for the campaign forum, Jim ! Really makes my day.

As we speak, the Red Army forces are in disarray, falling back trading space for time...

There is an Alan Panzer II Ausf. C at the ready in the advance of the Nazi columns. A Techmod T-50 light tank is getting upgunned with a Jordi Rubio 45mm main gun in hopes of slowing the horde of Huns. Eduard of Czechoslovakia is playing privateer by supplying each side with photoetched upgrades for their armor.

I have cleaned the parts for my T-35 (not an easy task at all) and am ready to start building.

Sadly, I think my rallying cry would be more like: "Prepare to abandon tank and make for the rear!"

And I busted the plastic on a DML Stug III today at our Nordland AMPS club meeting.. Tried to get Sabot to trade his Alan Pz IIc for it.. but he was too stubborn!!!

Sorry Charlie, only the freshest tasting tuna....er...not a StuG guy, besides I already have the Tamiya Fruhe StuG.

Was digging through my references to see the differences between the various Panzer II Ausf's. The Squadron/Signal Leichte Panzers in Action is a decent reference for this tank.

I'm still trying to finish some figures for the WWII Small N Big campaign but while they were drying I started work on a Tamiya Sdkfz 251/1. I really hate not being able to afford some Russian vehicle since it seems they are so badly outnumbered. If it helps any at least this one will be knocked out.
