I agree Jeff !!

Tat, I built that same kit a few years ago, it's a must, great detailing, metal gun barrel, the suspension looks complicated but it's not.

By the way, here's where you can post the finished builds, the Campaign Gallery !

Start your engines !!!
And remember to have fun !

Thanks Jeff, John.

I was actually looking for a Puma, but the LHS only had this and one that had a 20mm (?). So I thought this one was a bit closer. It was only after I got home when I started looking for online reviews -- and was quite happy to read that it was a well received kit. Yes there was mention of a complicated suspension, but I guess you'll never know until you get to it.

It's 1 September on my side of the pond. Let me open up the campaign then:



Cheers, and happy modelling to all!

Here is a photo of my entry for this campaign: Italeri 1/72 M-8 w/an Aber barrel. The T-34 is for the "Stalin's Armor" campaign.
@Tat: Can't wait to see your build photos. I have the kit and hope to build it someday.


Here's the work I completed today:

Take care,
Don "Lakota"

Dave & Brett, interesting choices, can't wait to see how they build. Here's the latest progress. I found an open seam on the fenders, I was able to use Mr. Surfacer 500 on the front fender. I'll try it on the back fender when I get back to this kit. I'm giving it a rest for a month so I can work on other projects.
Take care,
Don "Lakota"

Jose',
Not a bad choice.
The barrel is wrong, luckily I had an after market barrel. The kit builds up nicely.
Have fun,

I'm in with The Hobby Boss Sd.Kfz.222. I will use the "Feeling Part" Honeycomb Deck set and try to find a 2cm barrel in the stash.

 Hello friends!

Excellent kits for working!

@ Don.- Great and quick start!
@ Jon - Nice start!

I decided to start the old Mexican Vehicle DN-III made in resin for Model Fiber from México.



The kit comes with some failures as the wheel protectors which are incomplete and / or bad finished. The front and side port of vision do not have good detail. Some pieces are missing. Finally the hull has some holes that need to be filled. This kit is quite a disaster!



Regards!
Rodolfo

Some interesting builds going on here so far. I know I said I was going to build the Dingo 2 for this campaign, but I decided to hold off for now until the new Revell version comes out. I plan to do a said by side build review of both kits. Instead here’s my project that I will be building. Had this for some time and even had planned to build it in a past campaign but never got around to it.

Another Bronco Staghound here. I picked this as it a good OTB build...but man, there are some fiddly parts near the drivers windows. Will tackle the turret next weekend.
