My next trip to Ireland, in a little under 4 months, will be to fight on the German side in a big Kursk bash.
For this, I've sorted my to do list into 3 sections; German, Russian and Scenery.
Scenery wise I will be adding a few wrecks to my collection, maybe make another windmill and do various Russian farmyard stuff.
German wise I don't have a clue yet, I've requested, and have been granted, a spot on the German side, but listwise we are a bit in the dark to what we can and can't use. Personally I'm hoping to build me a few of the PSC Panzer IV's this time, and if I can make them H's even the better as those will be useful for Normandy as well. Having said that I have a small stash of Wills beauties so G's or even F's are not a problem either.
Russian wise, well I'm not on their side, but I will be handing over a full T-34 company to the gamesmaster. They might use it, they may not, who knows. And that is what I have started off with.
4 boxes of PSC T-34's (The 5th is in backorder, should be here next week-ish) gives me a starter of 12 T-34/76 1943. Of this lot 2 are for the Germans, the other 10 are Russian. Of these, 3, including the CO, are with the command cuppola which I made from surplus hatches left over from the Pegasus T-34/85 Fast build, with some modification. 1 of these will be a OT-34.
As soon as the last box arrives 1 will complete the 10 tank Company and 2 will be turned into wrecks.
Everyone will get banged up fenders front to back, replace the cast one wire with brass, make either a Notek or a normal headlight plus pots for the removable antenna to go in just using left over sprue that I will carve up. None of this lot will get the round fueltanks, a few will get square fueltanks, most will be without.
Looking forward to getting these finished and ready for paint tbh.
