Greetings,
With all the armor running around, I'll have to counter that with an Eastern Express Il-2m3 Sturmovik.
Regards,
Firstsergeant



Welcome aboard. Always great to see a bit more variety in the GB's.

I’ll represent the opposition with something Russian. Possibly an already started T-34 with interior, or something else fresh.

Happy Modeling,
Zon




Oh goodie, another Target

I expect a few more will roll in with you and Mark once the campaign starts Zon. The only Russkie kits I have are too late to be in Stalingrad.



Well, my already started T-34 is an /85, so too late for Stalingrad. Since Gaz jumped in with a /76, I'm thinking I might go for a fresh KV-1.

Happy Modeling,
Zon

You're welcome. Glad you and the guys liked it. It is very different to the usual ribbons, but it kind of stands out for that reason.

Hi Everyone,
I added the award to the campaign that was provided by Peter Battle.

Thank you Peter for taking the time to design for us an awesome looking ribbon!

I've decided on what I'll build for the campaign:


It just came in the mail yesterday along with some Masterclub tracks.

Thanks guys
This gives me a very good reason for a refresher somewhat with my copy of "Armageddon in Stalingrad" Vol 2, Sept-Nov by David Glantz. And were still weeks away! woo hoo!

Years ago I started on a few of the figures, a couple bldgs, etc. But def still in the assembly stage.

Should be a great campaign!

Cheers
Dave

I'll be contributing a diorama (w/o vehicles, as long as this is acceptable)



A dio figures only, certainly fits the rules Dave:
The Rules and Regs
The Campaign's scales will 1/6 to 1/144 and encompass air, ground, and figures. All historical, no Sci-fi, please.

Just enlisted for this one, probably my favorite battle of all time.

I'll be contributing a diorama (w/o vehicles, as long as this is acceptable) mid-Sept '42, factory district.

Been collecting figs, arty pcs, books, bldgs, detail accessories etc for awhile now, but was never able to sustain any momentum towards a completion.

Cheers

Welcome, John!
I think most of us are building German armor, so far.

Change of plans. Instead of the Sturm-Infanteriegeschütz 33B, which a few guys are doing, I'll do something else for a bit a variety - a Bronco Marder 2 Ausf D...

Yes Gaz, a Bronco again...

Count me in. Going to use a Tamiya Flak 36/37, probably spiked and abandoned

I'm sure there were a few such signs dotted around when the Germans got there. I got the idea from this

Something more like this?

Russian Cyrillic wall sign (with Bullet holes you probably can't see)






I like this Tag. Even if some of use are building German armor.

Hi John A,

Good choice - looks like we‘ll both be doing 24th PD vehicles.

I like the banner with ol‘ Adolf getting his butt kicked, too.

Jerry



Thanks Jerry

"Death of a Leaping Horseman"


Enlisted! Plan on building PzKpfw II F of the 24th PD.
