Well I have my kit lined up. A Tom Modellbau TKS Polish Tankette. It's not bad considering it's from an Eastern Bloc country in the 90's I believe. Needless to say there are quite a few things that can be seriously improved upon. The gun is horrible. I'll need to replace that with an AM barrel. Any suggestions for an AM 20mm autocannon based on the Oerlikon and a few other guns? The handles too need replacing as they are very thick. I can do that out of wire. This tank is extraordinarily tiny. The tracks are probably only 1/3rd the size of my M4A3E8' T66 tracks. The box is smaller than what the Revell 1/144 Eurofighter and F-14 Tomcats come in. It's also probably as tall as the E8's hull alone without the tracks attached.

This sounds like a good one I,am sure I can find something for that kind of money at one of the shows before the end of this year.

Too bad I will have to tear the tracks off, after the campaign.



I know the feeling. At some point I expect to move the launcher on the Gaskin on a Trumpeter BDRM or some other chassis.

Oh it's on? Count me in. For the bargain I should I should enter this $2 item:


But for a first campaign, I think TankManNick should enter a tank, eh? $20. Good excuse to build a modern vehicle for a change!

December / January start is good for me. I have three or four kits I'm considering.

Alex: Thank you. I always thought the Type 89 was a sexy beast, but thought it being an older kit would require a lot of work. Alex' build made me do a little research( http://www.armorama.com/modules.php?op=modload&name=SquawkBox&file=index&req=viewtopic&topic_id=227071 ) and decide that I had to try it out.

I'm fine with the timeframe and whatever start date is picked.

Matt, that's a neat vehicle. I have it on my wishlist for Christmas.

How about starting December or Jannuary, and going til September/October (10 Months)?



That works for me — gives me about 9 ½ months to procrastinate and two weeks to build!

I just placed an order for Trumpeter's Type 89 mlrs, for $17, before shipping. If this qualifies, I think I can hold off tearing into it.



Of course Matt, that is in... unless you spend more than 8$ on aftermarket

So we´ve got the basic team together, great. But before I can submit it we have to settle down a timeframe.

I'm interested to see that BTR build up. I've got my SA-9 so I'm ready. I'm pretty sure we'll get another person onboard for this one.

Fabian,
I still may jump in here if the time frame is right, but I'm so far behind on my build I dont want to be counted as the 10 committed
By the way looks like a nice kit for the price

from that we need only ONE more (or can I count myself in? )... and a ribbon, of course...

I had to browse through my stash aswell... I could enter with one Tristar Panzer IV or one of Dragons early StuGs... but I guess some afteremaket wouldn´t hurt there. Got some Paks and Flaks and Motorcyles but, well, I think I´m going bigger that that:

470 parts, 60 PE and 10 Clear plastic, full crew compartment. Released January 2014... scored last week in an German online shop.

Exactly 15 quid.

found the old academy knock off of the tamiya kit, $20.14, Im rounding down on that one. Should be fun to try to bring it up to a decent standard. The tracks are going to suck but I've blown the budget!

I just got a Dragon Stug IV Early Smart Kit for exactly $25... Not including shipping. But I won't be using it in this campaign sadly

And actually that TKS that was $7.50, the guy lowered to $4.
