I will go with either ribbon, they all look exceptional.

My MAQUETTE Pz.Kpfw 38(t) arrived today and the parts trees are probably from different batches since they are in 4 different colors.

Please do join us. We get going May 10.



Glad you like the ribbons guys

I've committed to a few others and I am not one to usually back out of something. I might have time to start during the middle of the build. I have a Tamiya Char B1 bis that has been in the stash for a while.. Aber etc set and 2 x RB barrel sets (forgot I already had one when I ordered another ) so not going to be standard Tamiya 'shake n bake' proposal

Peter, Ive built this kit twice in the past and had no problems. I keep a 5lb. sledge on the table to coerce those kits that are rowdy and need some discipline.

I have been working on a ribbon for the last week or so off & on as time & mental clarity allowed. I had in mind a simple French Tricolor with 1940 emblazoned on it and tried several permutations of type & color. I like the typestyle Peter used in his samples. It looks 1940 modern and is easy to read in a small size. The ribbon can only be 50 pixels across so that is important. Getting good definition in the small size across the three colors was another issue. I ended up using a gold color with a black border to help the date stand out. Here is what I came up with:





Comments, Ideas?

I was just looking over the huge number of great campaigns going on now or coming up in the next few months. I wish I had more building time!

I still have not decided what to build for this campaign. There are several armor kits that are good candidates and I would love to build a Curtiss Hawk 75 in French colors. Is there a good kit in 1/32 out?
