I'm probably building Miniart's SU-85 (early model).

I am on for this one. Probably a jagdpanther or jagdtiger.

Looking forward to get started.

Happy New Year, Everyone!
It's January 1 here in Australia, and I'm ready to get started on Trumpeter's Stürer Emil. I bought this kit secondhand at a show a couple years ago, and it had a set of Modelkasten tracks with it.

Here is my "beginning" photo:

How could you steal my thunder Gaz! Seriously hope everything is okay given the reports of fires we are getting. I'll just switch to a Tamiya M10 76.

Thank you for the concern, guys! recent rains and firefighters have reduced the amount of fires and smoke in my area. I've always been pretty safe as the fires haven't come close to my home.

Norman, there's no reason you can't do Sturer Emil, as well. There were two of them, Max and Moritz.

Couldn't take the comparison with my meager effort Gaz. Saves me pondering as to whether the crew wore Panzer black or Sturmartillarie field grey

Happy New Year everyone!
I couldn't wait to start the campaign. And ...
More than a year ago I bought a model of the Gunze. The campaign is the perfect place to present and assemble it.
Here are the initial photos.



Have fun and succeed.

Cool choice of vehicle Kalin. I think the JgPzIV70 (v) is awesome.
I was deciding between that and a Hetzer, but opted for the Hetzer.

Here's my entry into this campaign. This will be my first build of Romanian armor as well as a kit from this manufacturer (CMK I believe). Hope everyone has a great time with this campaign. Happy New Year everyone!

Cheers!

Hi,
Like Alex I'm thinking of doing the Waffentrager Auf E-100 from Amusing Hobby if that's acceptable. I have signed up and look forward to getting stuck into this little beast!

Cheers,
Johannon

Hi there Johannon, not wanting to step on Davids toes (He is the guy who thought up this campaign), he has already said in a previous post here that it is only tank destroyers that saw actual service and were put into production .... no what if's or paper panzers.

hope you can get another kit that fits the profile and stay with us.

Hi John,

Roger that and let me see what else I have in my stash. Several armored regiments worth to go through!
Yes, will definitely stick with this.

Hi all,

wow all of you guys are really quick off the mark but in fairness i have been busy what with my wedding at the end of November, then Christmas and now our planned honeymoon to Australia in the middle of January.

Anyway, i have started a new thread which has links in it to the enlistment page as well as the gallery page where you can upload your finished kits.

I have asked the Moderators to sticky the new thread so we can let this one fizzle out but i will add my starting picture here which is the tamiya jagdtiger in 1/35 scale...now i thought that this kit came with indy link tracks but i have the rubber band style in the box, so i might have to get after market ones... i'd also like an engine for it but there isn't one in the box, any ideas guys?

anyway here is my starting picture:

Hi David. Funnily enough I am just at the paint stage of the Tamiya JagdTiger, and it certainly came with link and length tracks as well as the vinyl ones. My box does say at the top left corner, just above the red lettering about photo etch being included, that it gives a choice of either vinyl or link/length, but I can't quite make out if yours does. For what it is worth, depending on what you do with the side skirts, this is one of those kits where it perhaps matters less, as certainly very little of the "sag" is visible

could I get some feedback on a Stryker M1134 anti tank guided missle being allowed? At least thats how its said on the side of the Trumpter model box I have. If no I can stay with my original build. Just saw I had this in the stash already.
