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.

Rob



You could suggest it for Jim Lewis - he has a Member's Choice option.



I am to please the Membership! If it is the Member's Choice winner - than I shall build it!

I am surprised you don't already have most of these built or is the plan to build them all in the time most off us build one?

I have been tempted more then once to start building the tank and the Viper. Personally I am hoping for a draw .
The figure would only take me a couple of days, so it is possible to build them all in the time allocated, in the event of a 5 way tie .
