Hi there

It's time to start signing up for Project X. This build will cover experimentals, prototypes and "paper projects" of all sorts - aircraft, armour, figures, sci-fi and warships.

Because some subjects might take a fair amount of research and scratch-building, we've pulled the start date forward to allow plenty of extra time - you can start building anytime from now on. The build will finish at Christmas.

Please add a post to sign on and I'll add your name to the list of those who've already expressed interest.

Cheers

Rowan

Hi MJ

I've got one of those little beasties too! Great value compared with the original Mauve release!

Where people have said what they'll be building, I'll add it to the list..

All the best

I want in. Do I have to say what I'm building? I'd rather show up with something that is a surprise.

Surprises are fine Sniper!

I still haven't decided what to build yet myself!

All the best

BTW Tony Buttler has his third book due out later this year on British Secret Project 1930-1950 - so plenty more ideas should be in there !!!!.

I'm in !
Thee's plenty of time so it should be fine...
As projects from movies or anime are accepted, I'll probably build the little savoia fighter from the "Porco Rosso" anime by hayao Miyazaki ! It's a little beauty of a kit from Fine Molds !

Would I be able to join with a partialy built kit? I won a CMK Jagdpanzer IV L/71 88mm Krupp conversion The seller says it has been started I e-mailed him on friday asking how much has been built and have not heard back anything yet I also got to get a new 88mm barrel for it as it does not have one
If I can't no hard feelings

why am i not surprised,

alas i have no such luck in choosing, i only build allied armour, and most of our designs were superb so we didnt have loads of prototypes like those silly teutonic types!

cheers

OK, count me in on the figure side of things, this will be a good chance to do one of my old PASGT wearin' Verlinden figures.
Look for a figure wearing the USMC "T" Pattern BDUs, Circia 1999. If any one has additional photos, I'd love to see them....

Hi Randy

We're keeping it pretty loose - aiming to finish around Christmas/New year. You can start building whenever you like, so there's hopefully enough time for anyone who needs to do some heavy conversion work for their entry.

Nice one PorkChop! I've been hoping we could feature some experimental uniforms and equipment.

All the best

Either that or I was thinking of a Coelian Panther (or one of the other way cool prototypes in the Encylopedia of German ...(whatevers)... Let me know if its not too late!!
