I have three F14's in the stash, and I'm sure I have a F4 hellcat/bearcat/wild cat too. So I guess count me in on this build!

I will be building one of the DML Jagd Tigers, just don't ask me which as I have two currently. Before anyone says anything I am not starting them both.

Another Big Kitty campaign!

Too bad signing up for a campaign doesn't automatically mean finishing one! I'd be all over some tables and picture-galleries were that true!

But this sounds GOOD and even doable.... I have a bunch of steel kittie-kits - Pz.II Luchs, SdKfz 234/2 Puma, some Panthers, Tigers, King-T, Jagd-P and Jagd-T, too - all hanging around with tongues lolling out and stuff just looking to get built and painted! Just added one of those Amusing Hobby Leopard kits to the pile... Grrrrrr!

I'll make a choice before November and get on this.

Big Cats Mk. X.....

Yeah.... I just went and scouted my stash looking for steel kittens... I think there's been a bit of kit-box hankie-pankie going on in my stash closet while I've had the door closed!

Let's see... in no special order, my 1/35 kitties include...
2 Dragon 234/2 Puma
2 Dragon JagdTiger kits
5 Dragon KT kits (2 zimm, 2 other)
7 Dragon Tiger I
8 Dragon panthers
3 Tasca Luchs
2 Dragon JagdPanthers
3 Dragon Tiger(Porsche)
2 Tamiya Panthers
...

and a bunch of other derived and hybrid kitties... Bergepanthers, Bergie-P with IV turms, w/ flak guns, "Leopard", etc.

There's also a few 1/72 kittens lurking. All-up, I'm pretty sure that (gasp!) I have perhaps 50+ German kitties in my stash... Where the HECK did these things all come from? I'll hope SWMBO isn't reading in these threads

And, hey, I don't actually much think I'm really a FAN of Panthers, Tigers I or II or J-T - my real preference lies in smaller stuff, like Pz. 38(t), Pz. 1 and II, and their many derivatives!

So... I'm probably good for "Big Cats Mk. L"! Of course I'll not likely live that long!

Yep count me in as well, have a 1/72 Berge Tiger that I wouldn't mind building.
though if I can get my hands on Wittmann's 007 Tiger in 1:35 I would be a happy man.

I'm falling behind in my campaigns and I'm insisted in so many it's hard to keep track of them all but I can't resist building those Tigers



Sal I know what you mean dude, I've only completed 19 builds
in the last 17 months , and have another 9 to do for this year

John has there ever been a record set for receiving awards on one day?



Paul plasticholic



Hi Paul,

As you can see in the 1st post, it was proposed in July to start in November.. as far as I know most of the participants in Mk.I & Mk.II have plenty of kittens in stash.

This crazy for your 22 day / build rate I know ...
Don't worry mate, you're gonna make it in time for sure..

I am in with a late Tiger II Ardenns DML kit with a late war resin update. Thus changes to the turret, rad vents, main gun, tracks, wheels. Should be able to get it done. Need to finish a few before I tackle this one.

I'll probably jump in after the New Year. I had to bug out on the last one and I don't want to miss the sequel. I have no idea what I would do.

Have a Jagdpanther in the stash, but I might wait until after Christmas to jump in onthis one. I'm hoping Santa brings a DAK Tiger with photo etch

Believe it or not...nothing. The stash is empty in terms of feline named vehicles. My stash is actually under control...sort of. I've got to pick up a couple kits. I figure I'll add a kitty kit to the next kit order I do.

Here is photo proof of the start of my project, a Tiger II mit 10.5. As you can see in the picture there are two kitties snuggled in the box. The barrel is from Zitader which make all the bits for the late update. I got all the other stuff, the hull, deck, turret hangers, from Chesapeak models, periscope from a scrapped E-100. The second photo is a tad out of focus sorry about that. Will be using the kit's tracks not the ones showing.

Okay I am in. 1:48 AFV Club Tiger I. I am used to doing 1:35, so this will be different. I am also going to try out weathering effects with this build. All my builds are usually clean off the factory floor

I just had to get started on my cat. It is November is it not? Using Gunze liquid puty stippled on to give the resin deck and DML's hull some texture. That is the grey colour you see.
