    Oh well I have to say I'm in if its Armout as I got my teeth into it
    I have found a new hobby in tanks and still Ww2
    I still have my KT2 to finish but there's no harm in starting another
    I'll have to look for one but count me in

    You could do the same as you did for the Cosford 'under a fiver build'. Pictures of the finished tanks on their own then a separate thread in the Diorama section.

    I think it would be a good idea if each GB had its own gallery section where pictures of completed builds could be posted. No comments, just the pics.

    They do it over on Britmodeller & it works well.

    Hi Dave I've got the same kit in the stash, I tried starting it several years ago, and put it back in the box, it truly is a horrible kit, the plastic is too soft and everything seemed too thick, I keep saying that I will get around to building it....but not just now:rolleyes:

    I assumed that Dragon would only re-box an old kit if it was close to their own kit quality. Looks like I was wrong.

    Hi Tommy I have acquired Two Su for this thread I'm hoping to get them both done. First is the Mini art SU85
    The other is the Tamiya SU 122
    They will both be in Russian WW2 mode poss ,with crew ( nor sure yet ) I may ask Monica for some advice on Russian tanks as I know little on either
    I await the flag drop on the start

    Kind regards

    Robert

    You're going to love me Tommy! I've changed my mind yet again, sorry mate...At £20.00, I couldn't say no.

    Something different from the normal Russian stuff. The crafty Russians put their own turret on the hull of captured German Armour....Ruski Stug!

    Looking forward to the start.
