Poll: Anneís next armor build

Now that I’ve finished my M4A3 Sherman model, it’s time to choose a new project. As some of you know, I bought a rather large collection of armor models a few years ago. The seller’s primary interest was in the Eastern Front of World War II, so most of them are German, Russian, or Polish.

I’m not in the mood for another challenging model right away, so I’m planning on choosing an older kit. We all know the kind: hand drawn, limited detail, garish colors, possibly with the initials “MM.” Since I’m no armor historian, it doesn’t really matter that much to me which one I choose, but I guarantee it will be quirky in some manner. So, for fun, I’ll ask: What nationality should my next model be? I’ll promise to abide by the results of the poll, and I welcome comments!

Voted for the "other", having a Japanese subject in mind. MM has in its catalogue Type 2 Ka-Mi and Type 1 Chi-He. Another good option is a Type 95 Ha-Go from the old GPM. My grandfather did this model couple years ago and posted it here. Type 95 Ha-Go

I assume you have a "stash".Could you tell us what they are? I'm thinking if we
pick one of the Japanese ones listed your stash will not diminish. Or is that what you are wanting to do?
cheers, bob

Yes, I have quite a stash. I suspect anybody who has been a member of Papermodelers for more than, say, 48 hours has a stash! In my case, there were over 100 unbuilt kits in the collection I bought, plus the stash I had accumulated before that purchase. They exceed a banker’s box in volume. So it would be impractical to list them all individually.

Now, of the items in the stash, some are not candidates for my next build, due to the fact that I want a less-challenging project this time around. It’s not going to be the behemoth 32-page Modelik T-35A, for example, as cool as that would be otherwise.

Most of my stash kits are from the Polish publishers we all know and love: MM, GPM, Modelik and its predecessor ModelCard, and a smattering of others. The subjects are predominantly WW II, and as noted, most are of German, Polish, or Russian subjects. But there are a few subjects from other combatant nations. I hadn’t really considered a Japanese subject until Pacific Wind mentioned it, but I do have a few in the stash, so that would be a possibility.

My thought was that the final selection will be a surprise to all of us — I don’t know yet what nationality will top the poll, and none of you know what specific kits I have to choose from. It will be from my existing stash, not a new purchase, and there will be something whimsical about it — odd colors, weird suspension, strange configuration, or something like that. The poll runs through Christmas, so there’s plenty of time to vote if you haven’t already!

Dear Rick:
we should ask Col. Don if there are still birds in the Museum or not. If not we could all harvest some locally to send to Ann I could offer Bond Lake New York Canadian Goose Poo.
Enjoy,
Miles
