Many thanks for the hint. Picked up 1/35th Revell Calliope and Acadamy Russian version for £22 all in for both including postage. The Tasca was looking at £50 or £60 for the Firefly from Amazon.
I'm sure I'll regret it later but I do love a bargain!

The 2 month buffer time to get ones ''bottom'' in gear to source kits, associated add ons and web searches for info is a great idea, started already, decided on the Italeri sherman ARV, thats going to be a challenge for me in itself as I'm not a tankie modeller through choiceI.
It'll be good to get out of the comfort zone
Once I have everything that I need I'll feel more comfortable.
Looking forward to it.

This one of the models i will be doing at the start of the year, Formation M4 a3. Just look at Formations site. They are not going any more.

Just in case anyone hasn't heard, the good news is that Formation products will be continuing with new owners:
I'll have a go at this group buld too. I'm going to attempt to finish Academy's M36 with a few extra bits and pieces. It'll be a French vehicle in Indochina.

Evening all - I've been doing some measuring up and the M51 hull works out to just over a foot long at 1/15
Since i have wanted to try this ever since i first saw an M51 in Shep Paines Road to Damascus diorama way back when I am going to attempt this as a scratch build in the Sherman group build if that's ok with everyone
The obvious way would be to just buy a Tamiya kit but at £100's of pounds, that is not really an option and is not so much of a challenge

Count me in work permitting, although not sure if i can complete in 3 months. Hopefully winter will give me a bit more time.

|Being a newcomer to the site, and never having done a group build before - can anyone tell us newbies what's involved please? I have a Sherman or two in the stash (the Revell Calliope too) and would like to join in if that's ok?|

Have a look at Spitfire Spitfire, its a group build. Basically though you build whatever it is and post progress in the thread.

I think the idea of it Stu is that we all build on a common subject, as Ross says posting updates on a single common thread.
Its a great way to share ideas, techniques and encourage each other through the builds
