the build is a chance for folk to show off skills if the want to...

or they can crack off a quick model and enter - and then get on with something else...


its not like you haven't built PSC kits before - it just won't be a Luchs is all... ;)

1. Are S-Model kits definite in? Some of their kits are more complex than those traditionally produced by the likes of Esci etc - especially the ones that come with photo-etch. Just checking as there are some juicy ones in my stash and one or two of the others have cast doubt on it.


YES
- the majority of S-models kits I have seen are quick build - they don't do individual link and length track or many fiddly parts...
When your average Revell or MACO kit has 200+ parts - i'd say that S-models is a quick build... and i'm in charge so :P

their Sdkfz 253 comes in at 31 parts... i'd say that was a quick build...

hincmar wrote:2. The rules say that conversions, accessories and super-detailing are permitted. Does that include spare parts from traditional kits? E.g. can I upgrade a basic T-34 by, say, Zvezda with bits and bobs left over from projects involving Dragon and Revell kits? I ask simply because my spares box is probably larger than most people's and I wouldn't want to be considered as having an unfair advantage.


oooh - go for it!!!!! - the whole point is that those folk who want to enter - build a quick build kit and get something done - fine... the availability of quality from quick build kits is enormous now, S-models being much finer in detail than say Armourfast - but if folk want to take an Armourfast kit and simply build it - fine. If folk want to take the same Armourfast kit and throw £30 worth of after market extras at it - also fine...

as long as the basis of the original kit is the fast build kit - then fine...

i even think that if you have Ken Overby resin conversion kits that use PSC kits as the basis - they are also eligible...

just had a look online - When i included Zvezda in the listing i was thinking of the 15mm stuff Zvezda do for their games - and the 20mm figures and guns (we all use them - would be rude not to...) I think Zvezda AFV kits are the absolute limit on this build - some of the "quick build kits" they do are almost the same as a normal kit. BUT the majority are still single sprue for each tank - so i'll wave them through...

Force-of-Valour kits = normal kits and are outside the scope of this build...
