    I guess we should chooses Axis or Allies first.I'll go for Allies this time around.

    Also,I think the moderators should be allowed to participate AND vote as well,if they so choose.Everybody gets one vote to cast.That makes it more than fair.The more vehicles added to the competition the better.

    I'm open to suggestions. I'm thinking about doing allies too.

    I vote for a Sherman, because I have a kit at home waiting to be built! :D

    But I don't really care. Anything from any Allied nation is fine by me...

    Hi guys!
    How great to see that you're alreading planning on a GB2! No christmas brake here, it seems! :lol:
    basically any tank is fine with me, but I still have quite a German Army in stock: A jagdtiger, a sturmgeschutz and a kingtiger (porsche turret!!).
    But I guess I had my chance last GB ;)
    I'll see what you guys come up with.
    :wink:

    We could go with a Sherman build.It's inevitable that we will get around to it some time.

    It will depend on what can be had locally. I don't want to order another kit. :wink:

    I hope to get an allied tank destroyer but I imagine a Sherman will be easier to get.

    Everybody give me some ideas and make a list to take to the hobby store. I then try to find something that fits the list and that will be my choice.

    Ricky, I already know about the Sherman. :wink:

    not to favour the ideas behind nazi's, but I'd like anything German. I'm not so much of an Allied builder.

    I have an idea!Build anything you want,as long as it has been captured!This should make it easy and interesting for everyone.

    Indeed a very nice idea! interesting. :cool:
    I think that it might be a little hard to judge though, since there will not be much comparison if everyone submits a different model. Thoughts?

    In the first group build,no two models were the same.The two JagdPanthers were different scales.I don't think voting would be any more challenging.The contestants just have to slug it out.

    Hey Guys, I would love to paint a winter camo scheme. I have no specific vehicle in regards to allies or axis. I'm just hoping to do better than the last time.

    Love this idea! :D

    It means that you can do any tank you like, and pictures of Captured tanks are common.

    It also means Bobo Nette could do a winter camo job, by maybe doing a Germanised T-34 :wink:


    JCalhoun - scratched record, me? :grin:
