Kalin,
The Italians and Romanians were an important part of the Stalingrad story. Please feel free to include them.

Hello everyone!
Gaz the idea of ​​Stalingrad I like. Count me in.
I have a question: The fighting on the Don River between September 1942 and February 1943 would have answered the subject. Or should we only focus on the Stalingrad region?
I want to make a model of the Italian or Romanian Army.

I'm guessing that at proper size, the boot to butt tag won't be easy to decipher.




You guessed it. You would have to be 'in the know'

Hi John A,

Good choice - looks like we‘ll both be doing 24th PD vehicles.

I like the banner with ol‘ Adolf getting his butt kicked, too.

Howdy Y'all
Peter-thanks for the inspiration. I've got Tamiya's 1/48 KV-1 kit.
Gaz-I'm in, of course. Now I just gotta start and finish the Anzio Annie kit for the Italian campaign.
Take care,
Don "Lakota"

Thanks, Peter! Great reference!

I've got a 1941 small turret so it definitely seems like it would fit.

Mark, not sure what version you have, but there were definitely KV 1 at Stalingrad. From Concord 6509 Stalingrad Inferno




And From Concord 7012 - Stalin's Heavy Tanks

Gaz,
What's your call on the KV-1? Plausible enough to make it?




Mark,
I'll allow it. I honestly don't know much about KV-1 variants. They all look very similar to me.

Hi Gaz,

Hmmmmm....since your initial proposal, the Dragon Panzer III J in the stash has been calling to me, so count me in! I‘ll be doing one of the ones fielded there by the 24th Panzer Division:

Well...
Counting me, we have ten interested parties.

Anyone else want to chime in?

But I might pick up some Russian steel if any comes my way at a good price.



Maybe at next month's club meet. Traditionally, the December meeting is also a swap and sell so you never know your luck.

I've barely started your current GB idea and you drag me into another one!!

I'm in with a Sturm-Infanteriegeschütz 33B or maybe a Sturer Emil


...and you forgot the word "frozen' from before 'heart'


and when are you going to join my Matchbox build Gaz. Surely you have an ex-Matchbox, Revell re-issue aircraft floating around



Peter,
I knew you couldn't resist! But you'll have time. But you don't have to feel obligated.

I'm doing the Sturm IG 33, too... I have two of them. But I might pick up some Russian steel if any comes my way at a good price.

And another word wouldn't fit in the title box. The title was inspired from a title I saw in my youth. It had a good ring to it.

I don't have any Matchbox kits. I have only been buying models for 4 years and I have only a few Revell kits, none of which were Matchbox re-pops. Trust me... I would have joined if I had something. I have plenty of Hasegawa, Tamiya, Academy, and Dragon kits, though. Ooh...I even have the Gaspatch HS-123. But yeah... I don't have any old stuff. Sorry!

Great idea Gaz ! Subject matter is wide open. The opportunity to finish a shelf queen or two makes this campaign a winner.
Boy, do I have things that fill the bill ! Now what should I build/complete ??!!/
Thanks !
