I would suggest number two or three from the top.

The last one gets a little messy with too many objects on a very little area in my opinion. But good to test the idea.

Great work on all of them, Jeremy. Appreciate the time and effort.

Jeremy,
I actually like the last 1 but 2 or 3 would be good as well. Good job with them. I see you have gotten bit by the bug too
I'm looking forward to this campaign starting.

Thanks for your time and effort to try my ideas, Jeremy, but I have to say the same as others, that there might be too much stuff in the last ribbon. My favourite is number two from the top. But they all look great after all.

Much thanks for the feedback guys, glad you all like. Sounds like number 3 from the top, or maybe number 2 from the top, is going to be the one we go with?

Jasper,
I think they need to start giving you a double row of ribbons for your collection

Maybe we could petition the Kitmaker network to increase the height of their banner size

Hereīs just a little teaser to all of you, who have enlisted into this campaign. Itīs TRP KV "Big turret" with some parts from Eduard PE set and some selfmade parts. It will have a Jordi Rubio barrel later.... I have used as a reference Neil Stokeīs excellent book and his recipe for one of the 24 first production "Big turret" KVīs.
Enjoy... or suffer.

Which is a good thing! Although several of us seem to be finding it hard to wait for the start date

Have you thought about putting together a quick list of who's building what for this campaign Warren?

No I hadn't Jeremy. I don't think many people have made up their minds yet.

I will start off by saying I can build any of the Trumpeter releases EXCEPT the German liveried ones.. Somehow it just doesn't look right having a black cross instead of a Red or White star! An German slogans suck, 'Strength through Joy' indeed!

I think the German beutepanzers are interesting, but like you I'm sticking with the Soviet tanks for the most part. I feel like building a big ugly KV-2 with a Russian slogan plastered all over the side of the turret. They are just so iconic.

I am sure most of you have seen it, but I have been posting my build of the Trumpeter KV-1....

Good practice for the campaign.

Sure, here is my WIP Trumpeter KV-1 Ehkranami, building it out of the box. It has been very fun to build. I started building it before I realised this campaign was going to start, but no worries I have a Trumpy KV-2 in the stash just begging to be built that I will use this Jannuary. Just a few more bits including the tracks, I will be using the kit provided link n length instead of the rubber band tracks also provided. This campaign should be fun!

Awesome! Even though I'm already following your build, it's really motivating to see it here

Iīm planning to build KV-I Ekhrany according to Neilīs recipe for a mid-late July 41 scheme with not full Ekhrany armor. Thereīs just couple things, that are controversy, between kit instructions and Neilīs recipe and therefore Iīm little confused..
