With two week’s & two days before the Forgotten Wars Campaign & T-34-85 campaigns start, I hadn’t planned to do another build thread.
Reorganized my work space, hopefully it will help improve my very slow build times.
My fill in the dead time project, the new Tamiya #35372 KV-1 practically built itself in less than nineteen hours. It has to wait for warm weather for paint.
Considered returning to Shelf of Shame project Dragon #6164 Kursk Panther. Dragon called it a Kursk Panther. Their faulty research included many details that appeared after Kursk. Didn’t realize how badly Dragon missed the mark with it until after hollowing out all the guide teeth in the tracks and assembling the hull. Pitched it straight in the trash bin in 2003.
For some reason, my wife dug the kit out of the trash can and slipped it back on the shelf, where its sat since.
Opened the box and lots of PE tool clamps to complete. Not quite ready for that after the Italeri Panzer IV G build.
The Three Amigos
Goals are Takom as a Kursk Pz IIIM probably 2nd Panzer Division, maybe 11th Panzer Division, Tamiya as a Leningrad Pz IIIM attached to 502 Tiger battalion and DML as a Tunisian Pz III M probably of 21st or 15th Panzer etc.
Decided the Takom Blitz Panzer IIIN should be a good first project. It will be my first Takom kit. What’s in the box looks impressive. Excited to try one of the New Wave manufacturers kits.
