Operation Crusader saw the mighty Eighth Army relieve the siege of Tobruk. The battle of Gazala saw the Desert Fox and Panzerarmee Afrika in victory culminating with the fall of Tobruk.

Sounds interesting. I've been meaning to do some British subjects and this seems like a good opportunity.

I really need to get myself some new shelf space..

I would be interested in this. I'm in a few other builds and would like to finish those first, but time permitting this sounds like a fun build to join.

Fantastic!
It's great ro see eight guys express interest in just over a few hours. For me, I've been hankering to see some desert schemes as well as use recently learned techniques on desert camo.

Tat,
Beute it up! As the pics illustrate, both sides made use of captured gear.

That's great Gaz. A captured Matilda may be an option as well. Better start reading on this desert conflict

Hi Guys, count me in with an Italian M13/40 medium tank. That will be somewhat off the beaten path.

Hi Raj,

Count me in.
Going to buy the Bronco StuG III Ausf D version for this one, as I really enjoyed building the G version for the Tankbusters campaign.
