Welcome to the Official Hot out of the Molds 2017 campaign! Jesper (SGTJKJ) is your leader on this one.

This campaign is for those brand new or re-released kits that you have been waiting FOREVER for (or suddenly appeared and surprised you) and you just need to clear the bench and start on them right away. As a bonus, your build of a brand new kit gives a heads up to those who are thinking of getting it but want to know how it goes together. To that end, separate build threads in the appropriate KitMaker forum are encouraged, but you should post your start pic and a link to the build in this thread (and hopefully a link back to this thread in your build.) In addition, no ribbon unless you post finished pics in the campaign gallery.

All types of builds are welcome but I'm running the main thread here in AeroScale because that's where I can make any necessary changes.

If you want to sign up and/or read the rules, go here. The campaign gallery can be found here. Looking forward to some great builds of new releases!

Campaign leader signed up as the first one

Just to clarify the rules: anything that hit the shelves in 2016 and of course 2017 qualifies for this campaign. If in doubt, just ask

Linus, beautiful kit. I really like that Airfix is focusing on the British niche in the market instead of making the same kits as everybody else.

I agree Jesper I think everyone can lay off the Spitfire/P47/P51/Me109/Fw190 market for a while and come up with some new stuff.

New banners with the misspelling "Molds" fixed.

Thomas, welcome onboard.

Great choices. I have been eyeing these myselves. Are these models of actual tanks or are they US "What if" heavy tanks?

In any case they fit the campaign great and I hope this will be the campaign to break your campaign gridlock

No they were prototypes, production was canceled when the war ended. 8 were built. I have seen 2 in Fort Knox a few years back, they are huge. Takom gives some options as if they entered production. They would have given all those paper panzers something to think about.

I had to suspend campaigning for a diorama I'm building for a local museum.

Welcome onboard, Linus. Cool looking kit.

Are you going for the marking scheme from the box art?

My lord is build. It was a very quick build and excellent fit. One hour was all it took. Painting it will be a whole other subject.

Welcome onboard, David.

Really looking forward to see your build. Based on your Star Wars entry for the Sci-Fi II campaign it will look great.
