I've narrowed my project down and will be building the Y-Modelle ATF Dingo 2.3. The kit has been sitting in my stash for some time now and been looking for a reason to build it and now I have one.

I'd be very interested to see how that Dingo model builds up. It looks excellent! Is it 1/35?

Yes the kit is 1/35 and the details are very crisp and all the parts are made with 3d printing. One of the biggest challenges will be cleaning up the chassis frame as this is cast in one piece and the pour stubs are in really bad spots. One let down is the doors are molded shut, so I will have to scratch new doors once everything is opened up.

Looks like I'm joining my first campaign!

I love me some armored cars, I'm not quite sure why but wheels and a big gun just gets my modelling fire going.

I'll post up a photo of my armored car collection later today and let you guys pick my build.

Well the choice has been made. I know Chris is building one, but this one will be a little smaller. A Mini-D so to speak.

Signed up and have a 1/35 DAK Tamiya 232 with an aftermarket PE - will likely order some wheels for it.

Here is my entry to this campain, Scale Link´s OOP Landsverk M38. As shown in the second picture this will end up as a Danish Forsøgspanser 7 which means, the 7th vehicle in the Danish Army’s experiments with armored vehicles.
