Hello there- here's my first post on Armorama. I generally build flying thingies, but for reasons I'm still unsure of, I've entered a group build. The subject is a well kit by Monroe Perdu, another wonderful little 1/35 gem designed by Mr MP, Mike Bishop. I'll be interspersing these reports with my next aircraft build, which will begin with the new year- for another group build! Both contests are at Modelers Alliance, a great site aimed at all types of modeling. Random cartoon characters will appear, as Fritzi and Hannah are on break until January. Read on to meet Wendy Wehrmacht- and of course Pfennig makes his strident commentary.

Chuk I look forward to seein you tackling Armour rather than the wingy things. Did you get the KS750 with the resin set or without?

Cool blog so far Chuck.
A friend of mines used the black dog stowage set for the kubelwagen, and he said the fit wasn´t 100%. He had to fill a little and re-sculpt to have the "sit" look natural.

I was wondering how I was going to cope after you finished your last marvelous project. Glad to see you and Pfennig back in action.

It's nice to have the week between Christmas and New Year's off- time to model! My lovely wife puts up a lot from me this way- although I did steam clean a lot of our carpets today... Take it away, Wendy!
