Wehrmacht '46 Group Build was created by Andrew
After it has raised interest in the IDF GB thread, I'm proposing a Wehrmacht '46 Group Build :woohoo:

Thinking of a start date of May 2012 to tie in with the actual German surrender? Run for 8-12 months?

We could even include Luft '46 for the Flyboys ;)

I'm keen, who else is? :cheer:

It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

Yes, after the IDF build. I'd need to locate an Trumpeter E100.

Me, me, me. I already have an idea in mind.

My wife calls me a curmudgeon. I haven't looked it up but I assume it means "fun loving and free spirited" or some such twaddle. I inform and perform over at www.militarymodels.co.nz and stick my oar in here as well. My passion is WWII 1/35 armour but I'm coming around to liking the odd 1/32 thing...

Same one that's been on the back burner for two years, a scratchbuilt Waffen S.S. troop carrying helicopter.

Can you source some good shots of their experimental efforts (paper chopper etc) They had a few in mind. You'd have to do it in ambush scheme

I scratch built this, does it count? :P







Yeah I'd probably be up for this one as well if we can include this type of thing as I enjoyed building it.

The germans started using choppers in 1937 as spotters for the navy and throughout the war they were using a twin rotor variant to haul equipment up mountains for mountain troops. They just never cottoned on to their tactical uses and so they were never developed to their full potential or produced in large enough numbers. The US had it's first fully operational chopper flying in 1944 being used to rescue downed pilots.

I'm going more down the what if as in what if some one woke up one day and thought "hey, we could stick a squad on these, a few guns, and go blitzkrieg airborne style"

So planning on using the design styles they had at the time but building a larger airframe, single large rotor and room for eight guys. Think of a more angular, more skeletal Huey and you'd be close.

That's more Maschinen Krieger style than Wehrmacht '46?

I'd be keen to have a go at something like that eventually too

If it goes ahead Andrew, if you looked after the Wehrmacht '46 side of things and I could take care of the Luft '46 part, if that suits you of course.... Just throwing it out there....

Maybe we could call the whole build the "Third Reich '46" and then have the smaller land and air group builds.... Just a thought...

Are you looking at something along the lines of the Fa-223?

Yeah basically thinking of taking that and expanding upon it. To do the Fa-223 means either doing the 1/48 scale one or trying do scratchbuild it and keep it accurate so I figure it's easier to do a "next evolution" version and do a bigger one that's sort of that crossed with a Chinook.

Definitely be interested in doing a build for this. Have a E75 and a Panther F that I'd love to tear into. :)

Funny you should mention that, I did think about it for a bit before I realised I have nowhere near the level of scratchbuilding skills required for a task of that magnitude...

Tracks would be the hardest on something like that. That and finding a 1/35 scale battleship turret.

If anyone does one my money is on Trumpeter, they do a lot of Paper Panzers already. Seems to be one of their niches.

Yup, I'd be keen on doing a Luft 46 project. I built the Dragon 'Natter' back in the late 90's just before I gave up plastic kit modelling and I recall I really enjoyed it.

On the bench.

1/48 Hasegawa Hurricane Mk.IIc
1/35 Afv Club Scorpion - Kiwi conversion.
1/35 Revell TPZ1 NBC Fuch
1/48 Tamiya Stug Ausf G

Coming Soon.
Another 1/48 Hurricane
1/35 AFV Club Walker Bulldog - Kiwi conversion.

So by '46, this is those German weapons that didn't make it into the war? I'm thinking the Horton 229 or XVIII. Or if I could get my hands on a classy enough kit, H-class Battleship H-44.
