I normally dont build German armor, but I have a Dragon premium Panther Ausf D just sitting on the shelf that I originally planned to combine with a SU-152. So Im game with building it for this campaign.

I've posted this question, under a different thread. But, does anyone know the correct interior for the IV D in Africa? I'm looking at the Verlinden set and Tank Workshop set. I have built both, before and noticed some major differences.

Greetings All,

Clock is ticking down till start time, I am excited for 2 reasons the GB is gonna start and I am almost out of Afghanistan, and returning to the bench is gonna be a great relaxation tool. I am stoked. I just wanted to drop in and say hi, we got lots of members and some great looking projects I see I think it's gonna be a good one.

Would a SIG be considered OK for this campaign? I have the s.I.G.33 auf Fgst.Pz.Kpfw.III(Sfl.) from Dragon.

Semper Fi, Thundergrunt. Keep your head down and come home in one piece. I have never entered a campaign...but I'm going to do this one in honor of your homecoming...count me in.

I've got a Panther A I want to use, but I stuck a few pieces of the turret together to dry-fit a Verlinden zimm set. Could I still build that for this campaign?

Stay safe over there Euge.

I have an extra track jig, for Dragon/CH panzer IVs. This should work for any panzer IV. If anybody wants it, shoot me a pm.

If the s.I.G.33 is not allowed, I will go with the Elefant from Tamiya. I have the zimmerit from Tamiya, tracks from Friul and gun from Aber for this kit. I am getting quite... giddy about this campaign.

Gary: Great to hear! I'll be watching your build, intensely. I've wanted to see how one of these builds up.

Thanks Jeff,
Still some time to go before you need to decide.
Some incredible builds about to take place on this campaign.

I think all our thoughts are with Thundergrunt. Safe home from all of us.
