Nahh! I think we should just switch all Dave's votes to Wallace & Gromit!

It's simple, easy to remember - and the build we want to see!

More cheese, Gromit?

All the best

Can someone, anyone, please just build an AFV Club sdkfz 251 C. I never really see this kit being bult much so if one of you guys have it, I would LOVE to see one built up!

I know the rules suggest picking from your list but I thought someone could add this as a project.

I must admit to being a little shocked that all my choices seem to have votes, I must have picked some interesting subjects, and I really don't mind which one I build.

This is quite a fun campaign really has some one designed the medal yet?
