This will be my entry, for this group build and my binge build. This should be fine, right? Since it is a variant of the T-54.



Yep, that's good to go!

OK, so my M-41 doesn't qualify, but I've got an M-48 and two M-1s that want to get built.
I'm in.

Came sooo close to snagging a Tamiya M48A3 for this build at my local thrift shop. But it was missing the running gear . Nice price, if it was all there, but way too expensive considering that 1/3rd of the parts were missing...

Lucky you that you checked it first!
I was "lucky" to find and buy an Italeri RSO during one of the periods when it was out of production and difficult to find. When I got home and checked the box the running gear for one side was missing, one sprue in the box instead of two ...

It certainly in as far as I'm concerned. Should be an interesting subject!

@Robin,

A painful, expensive lesson. I've picked up a couple of models at thrift shops only to find major components missing when I got home and laid it all out. Picked up a Tamiya 1/2 motorcycle only to find out the entire bag of parts for the front wheel is missing Even the AMT M1 Abrams I snagged for this campaign is missing some small parts, 2 antenna mounts ond one of the doors for the gunner's vision port. I think I can fake both of those.

Im in. Tamiyas M1 in 1/48th scale, most likely, or Tamiyas Tiran 5 in 1/35th, if I get ambitious.

Happy Modeling,

I am going to guess this is the spot.... So, here are the beginning shots for my build....





That is the pile.... kit, track, decals and PE. Not sure where I will start first, although I do know that there are a lot of tie down loops to be replaced.... which thankfully the PE gives me, along with a tool for setting up the holes.

I have a blog on my efforts to research the model that is here...

Hi Bob,

Nice choice of kit - I havent seen very many Type 10 builds. And I like the slightly obsessive sleuth work tracking down your particular tank.

Ill get my start photo up tomorrow of my T-80UD.

Have fun with this campaign, everybody!

And this one is off and running. Welcome, everyone!

I'm going to have to delay my start a bit to clear things off my bench as well. As one of the projects I'm finishing up is the Takom Merkava Mk.1, I'm not sure I want to do another one right away. If I do it'll likely be the Meng Mk.3D or Mk.4. I'm also eyeing the Dragon M48A2/Magach 2 or the AFV M60A1. Choices, choices!

I have built the Dragon M48A2 and really enjoyed it. Went together well but watch those tracks if you are using them. The DS tracks disintegrated on me.

Here's my entry Takom's M160A1 with ERA from Desert Storm in 1991. Tank will be painted in MERDC Desert Gray camouflage with sand ERA panels.


Btw. It would be good to change the topic header from "proposal" to "official"

No idea. Went to use my Tamiya extra thin as I have done on other DS tracks and where it touched just ate through and dissolved the track. Not sure if it was a bad batch or what?

Bruce,

See your thread on the problem. I've posted a long but hopefully helpful answer.
