Thanks Christian,

I will hop over and sign up and as you say I think I am okay on the parts however I will double check when I purchase the kit and if there is any doubt buy something more suitable.

You're safe, Mike, even with the unused parts you'll top 500. Welcome to our addiction!

Thanks Clayton,

I am not new to modelling in general but new to military modelling. I have spent a lot of time building cars and trucks all in showroom condition.

Weathering is a whole new thing to me so looking forward to getting stuck in.

Welcome to the Blood, Mud and Tears brigade Mike! At least you will get a showroom condition ribbon from the build if you complete it

Ugggh. Totally futzed the turret with excessive glue. So will go this route instead. BTW anyone know if it is possible to order replacement sprues from Meng?

Sorry to hear that! Maybe you can ask them on Facebook about replacement parts?

Almost finished with my Big Cats V build, and this looks like it will be a fun one. I've got a few kits in the stash that easily fall into the 500+ category. Just need to figure out which one.

I'm looking forward to this campaign. That kit has been sitting for far too long showing some leg and winking at me . . .

I'll join too. Don't know if I will be able to finish in time though ....
I picked Bronco 35174, Versuchsflakwagen Fur 8.8cm Flak.37 Auf Sonderfahrgestell (Pz.SfI.IVc). If I counted correctly there is two pins and a track link (3 parts) and around 200 links in total so the tracks alone gets me over the limit, the vehicle and the FlaK 37 go as bonus parts Don't need to count the helmets and other loose parts lying around .....

Image of the "unboxing" will be added to the Gallery.
Review of the kit:

/ Robin

Tried to upload the 'start' image to the gallery, the upload seemed to work but I never got to the postprocesing part and I can't figure out where the image ended up either ...


In case I never manage to upload to the 500+ gallery:

Hi,
To prepare to this campaign, I pick a Panda's T-15 Armata. It's an ugly beast. No interior, only one decal and camouflage option.



I counted quantity of parts. With sprues A and T, it's over 500 parts. Now, taking the breath.

Regards,
K.
