So good luck for the tricky parts... And finishing the suspension is not the only concern: after tackling with all theses tiny part, you must retain enough stamina for building the rest!

How does one join in with the group builds here on Scalemates ?

As I have just acquired a Tamiya M41 Walker Bulldog 1:35 which counts as a light tank if I am not mistaken :)

Go here (0., )
then click "add event" then make a project with the stuff you will use and put the exact name of the GB into the title box. Then add the exact name of the GB in tye title box of the photo album and connect the two loo

I cant believe the m 41 is a light tank lol

Have I got something wrong ? is the M41 not a light tank ?
20. June 2014, 17:07
Choppa Nutta
ah so, I see Mike Goldberg is doing an M41 as part of this group too so to answer my own question, yes it is :D

Yes it is classified as a light tank but was much larger than the light tanks of WWII. It is really large when compared to the light tanks early in WWII.

The Bulldog weighed 23 tons as opposed to the pzkpfw II ausf a-c which were 9 tons. The term light tank is a moving target.
20. June 2014, 17:18
Choppa Nutta
so were the tanks, moving targets that is :D
anyhow, this is good because my Abrams, T-55 & T-72 probably don't count as light tanks, not that I actually know :)

I wish there was a button that said "Join"...
I can't see a button that says "Add Event"
20. June 2014, 17:29
Choppa Nutta
This seems all a little convoluted to me at the moment :)
I was hoping for a "Join" button that created the right thingyame bobs for you.... or am I being a bit thick ? :)

Choppa when you click on the event on the main page there is a button labelled attend event.

Watching. Are going to replace the springs with real ones?
20. June 2014, 17:36
Dave Flitton
I stand corrected, they are already there.
20. June 2014, 17:37
Choppa Nutta
the only button I can see is "edit event" and I have scrolled up and down a few times
20. June 2014, 17:38
Choppa Nutta
where is this button supposed to be ? near the top ?
20. June 2014, 17:39
Choppa Nutta
click "add event" - "attend event" ?? just not seeing these buttons at all...

then make a project with the stuff you will use and put the exact name of the GB into the title box
- "Light Tanks Groupbuild" ?

Then add the exact name of the GB in tye ? title box of the photo album
- "Light Tanks Groupbuild M41 WALKER BULLDOG" ??

tye ? what does that mean I wonder ?

and connect the two --

I'm so sorry but this really isn't obvious to me what I am supposed to do here at all, I am not getting this :(

- "Light Tanks Groupbuild M41 WALKER BULLDOG" ??
omit m41 and onwards....: "Light Tanks Groupbuild"

Apologies for hijacking the topic btw.

Choppa go to Scalemates home page. Scroll down the right side until you reach the events. Click on Light Tank Group Build. There is an attending this events button after the picture and the details and before visitors pictures

Choppa Nutta
Yeah sorry everyone for my confusion, hopefully I can work this out soon :)
20. June 2014, 18:00
Choppa Nutta
In the visitors section is a button labeled "attending this event" which I clicked on to see who was attending this event and then it seems I was part of the list, this is confusing !
"Join Event" would be a much easier label to work out what to do...
Anyhow, appreciate the help :)

Hi Alan,

after all the suspension parts you'll need a "spring break"... ;)
20. June 2014, 18:03
Choppa Nutta
lol :) and then after your holiday you should have a bit of a spring in your step... :D
20. June 2014, 18:07
Choppa Nutta
Sorry Alan for the diversion in your thread, I appear to be part of the Light Tanks Groupbuild now after much confusion on my part, sorry for being slow on the uptake here and thanks for everyones patience and help :)

Anyhow Alan, I can see you making a nice job of this one, especially with the sprung wheels and PE parts, one to watch :)

No problem. Hopefully, it will be a nice job.
