I could jump on this although I wouldn't start building for some time due to all the started kits on my desktop right now. Have been thinking of doing a T-34 for a while now.

Could you give some more specific info about timeframe, you have been thinking of for this? I have half-finished KV-2, T-34 and T-70 in my stash and some of them have been in hiatus over 3 years!! I'm so sick'n tired for their current state....

It'd be a good excuse to add a Su-100 to the collection.

I have a 1/72 T-34 that is partially built, along with a partially built building for a vignette, if that is fine by you?

Seams like the place has gone campaign crazy
Greg is a great campaign leader and I have a few Russian Tank in the stash that will work here
The questions time I am already committed to 7 more campaigns that end this year plus the 2 I'm working on
So if this is approved I will most likely jump in
Would a IS-2 with a big OKW on the turret fit here I have been dying to build that 1 for a while

Jeremy - Good to see you. Yes that's great - all partials accepted

Sal - the more campaigns and builds the better I always burn out on a build so it's nice to go back and forth.

JS-2 - it belonged to Stalin at one time so go for it


Let's submit this thing

Greg,

We have too many Campaigns to finish(some with extensions) in July/August.
I'd rather start this one in September, to allow everyone to finish their builds during the Summer.
We have around 26 Campaigns to finish this year.

Let me know what you think.
If everyone is ok with 08-2013, I don't mind but I know must of you guys are in many of these Campaigns that end during the Summer .

I just ordered a 1/72 Trumpeter IS-3, intending to build it as a birthday present for a close friend who is playing World of Tanks (guess which is his most favourite ride? lol)

Since his birthday is in end December, I will likely start in September or October (it will have to be a simple build; my schedule is a little packed )...timing seems just nice for this campaign

Of cos I am assuming you mean August 2013?

Cheers
Lawrence

Hi Greg,

IŽll do a twin build of some rather low-tech kits, and see
what needs doing to them along the way :-

T60 and T70 Zvezda and Toga

Still undecided and might switch some kits around to fit in. I may use the KV-122 here and then another Trumpeter kit for the Trumpeter Campaign.

Still thinking...

Hi Greg,

The tanks allowed are only IS chassis based tanks ?
Or any tank used by the Soviet Union during WW2 ?
Just during WW2 or after 1945 too (at least until Stalin's death)?

Thanks,

Any tank used during Stalin's lifetime. That should keep it interesting
