    SturmTiger's comment on the divisions in which the tanks served:

    "Panther 421 belongs to the 12th SS Panzer Division,the Hitler Jugend.
    Firefly 71 belonged to 13/18 Royal Hussars,27th Armoured Brigade. My research indicates both units operated in the Normandy theater on or after the D-Day Invasion"

    Hi guys,

    wonderful job on the cromwell there. This is going to a though round to judge!

    We have 5 models so far, Jcalhoun, Ricky, ST, Boba Nette and DMPN. Thanks for your contributions!

    Like me262, or unfurtunately without doubt, I will not be entering a model at this time. Mine's still mostly in the box... :( I will keep working on it so I can show it some time later, but there won't be a PP model for GBIII.
    I'm very, very sorry!

    btw, was today the last day, or does it run till tomorrow?

    Hi guys! I just wanted to say good luck to all that entered, and to those that regularly enter and could not this time. You will be missed. All of the tanks look wonderful. Great Job Guys! Question: How long is the voting process? I have a busy work week ahead, and would hate to miss the vote. Once again, great job!

    Nice job me262.I'm glad you were able to join.It would appear the 12th SS is well represented.

    I must admit,including actual units as part of the build seemed a bit technical at first,but after scrolling through the posts I feel real credit has been given to participating units from a historical point of view.Good call JC.

    Good job, sir! Errors? I don't see any errors. :D

    ST;
    I felt it would give the project a more historically accurate feel to it. Glad you like it. :D
