Calling 1:48 armour and softskin modellers!

Hi everyone

I’m not sure how much news filters across the Kitmaker Network since the switch to the new format, so you may or may not have seen the sad news that long-time Kitmaker member and contributor Steffen Arndt died recently:

As anyone who knew Steffen will realise, he was a dedicated 1:48 scale modeller - The One True Scale as he loved to call it(!) - specialising on aircraft and armour.

Anyway, we’re getting a group build together in Steffen’s honour. It will encompass all types of models, to encourage as many people to join in as possible from all modelling genres - and, you’ve guessed it - the one qualifying factor will be that you submit a build in 1:48 (or as close as possible for some of the genres where it might be hard to find a suitable kit).

We’re aiming to get the ball rolling at the start of February, with a finished date at the end of 2021, so there’s plenty of time to find something to build, even if 1:48 isn’t your normal scale. So, keep your eyes peeled for more details if you’d like to join in.

Above all, I really want this to be fun, despite the sad reason for the build. Steffen loved modelling, so let’s make this a real celebration of the hobby he gave so much to, both on Kitmaker and, especially, at IPMS Deutschland.

Take care care and stay safe.

All the best

Hi again

We’ve got a thread going where you can “sign up” for the build in Steffen’s honour:

It would be great to get some 1:48 armour builds in the mix. :beer:
