The Competition is open to all, here are the parameters...
1) There is no time scale or armament type, it can be any sort of armament, tank, artillery, self propelled guns, troop transports, lorries etc., from any era starting from 1900 to present day. So a wide variety of types to choose from.
2) Those using the armament must be different from the intended end users. This can be because the armament is captured, purchased by another end user, scrounged, lent or 'aquired'. For example a PzKpfw IV was designed and intended for the German Army, however it was sold to Spain and Syria, supplied to Bulgaria and Croatia, captured by the Allies, so these latter named countries were 'New Owners', I hope this illustrates the scope of the competition.
3) The time scale is from now to the beginning of April next year, the competition is intended to be a bit of fun and done at a more leisurely pace. There is no starting criteria, just join in as and when you like, show some progress shots and keep us up to date with your build at intervals - no need for weekly updates. The feature will appear each Friday, as did the Shelf Queen Challenge, and will just be a general invitation to show any progress you may have made.
4) There will be a prize for the best model, as voted for by the members. Also a lottery prize to be drawn for (by my good wife) out of the remaining entrants in the final Gallery. The prize for the best model will be the Dragon Tiger I with Panzer Aces, the lottery prize will be a choice of OKB items from a list I will provide.
Post any updates here...
...got a drawing of the top so have been calculating dimensions, will be able to cut plastic soon!!
Got a suggestion; someone asked in one of the GB posts how long the build was, so why not include that in the title? Like this; "GB - purple tanks - week 2 of 16" This way when one gets some inspiration we won't jump in with a week to go!!
