Thanks for the compliment Paul: it's deserving of a ribbon. But as it's not my campaign I guess you'll have to earn it the hard way!

Paul, you will just have to build a Bronco for your ribbon

If people do get stuck for time, I may be able to extend the campaign as we all know, Bronco kits are not something you build in a lazy afternoon!

Have enlisted but nothing as yet in the stash. Do like the look of the new pz.kpfw 1 with interior... Or maybe swap completely and try an allied subject... Will see...

I'm currently working on the M1114, and I can tell you it's one of the best kits out there, the level of detailing is superb.
lots of options, so far I only regret that I bought just one.

My first Bronco was the Sdkfz.221 but this one is one or two levels above.
Take a Premium Dragon kit, add a very good set of instructions, take out the 736 extra sprues Dragon left ... and you got your Bronco kit.

Yep I'm also building a Bronco at the moment, A SdKfz 6/2 3.7cm Flak half track. Fit of parts is excellent, their tan plastic is great to work with and the detail is spot on.

have now got my kit (well I will when it arrives).. have gone for the A13 MkII Cruiser IVA - most likely going to do caunter scheme but will see... first allied vehicle since coming back in to armour... may look at some AM for it (barrels for example, believe the kit I got (ebay) includes the engine deck replacement, maybe add a fair chunk of stowage - all depends on what photos I can find....

anyone got some good references for the interior - perhaps I can scratch some (or is there an AM set?)

Well we don't have much longer to go until the campaign starts.
And it's great to see so many enlist!
Looking forward to starting my Zrinyl assault gun, keeps looking at me from the stash saying "build me, build me" LOL

Cool so now we can start

I have been looking at this kit since I bought it back early October last year, and waiting for the 1st April.

Here's my entry into this campaign, a Hungarian Zrinyi assault gun. Will be built OOB except for a metal barrel which I should have shortly.



I look forward to seeing what others are building!

@Tony, have seen a few build ups of that Marder and it looks great with an insane amount of detail. Look forward to seeing how it goes

I got started on my Marder IID last night and finished up assembly of the wheels this morning.







After the wheels the hull took on some parts.






That's it for today folks

@Tony, the Marder is coming along very nicely!

I got a start on my Zrinyi assault gun today, got the 105mm Howitzer, mantlet and driver's station built. When I next build some of this kit it will be the suspension, which looks very complex and full of tiny parts

Progress so far:

The instructions for some parts are very vague, I hope I got the gun all assembled properly.


Late version mantlet with spare track hangers.


The cosy driver's seat in the lower hull.

PM sent Jason

It's a neat kit but some areas of the instructions are like you said vague very vague.

I'm in with a Humber Mk. IV if Jason allows it...one wheel has been assembled for the review I wrote so it's not completely unassembled as per the rules
Really would like to get started on this one, can't believe its been almost 3 years since this one rolled across my desk!

@Tony, thanks for the tips and I will have a go at correcting that part you mentioned in the PM..cheers

@James, your Humber will be ok. No dramas if only one wheel has been assembled!

Hi there
For my first campaign i plan on doing a whatif of a T17E3 Staghound,going to be a bit of a learning curve as this is only my second experince with resin.


At the moment still waiting on the donor kit and the m8 conversion kit to come through the post.
The conversion kit is from The new TMD and looks like this


Hopefully they and the other bits will arive soon as im very keen to get started
