I have voted for a Kriegsmarine GB as I won't be taking part in a Channel Dash GB. Ironically, for the last Kriegsmarine GB I built a "Channel Dash" Prinz Eugen!

Is it too late to ask if the Kriegsmarine category could be extended to 1:1200? :pray:

1/1200 ships are fine, as long as they are Airfix or were issued by Airfix.

The winner is Kriegsmarine 1:400 - 1:600 - 1:1200.
The original proposal as from Bissyboat who has volunteered to GB Leader.
Next step will be a poll for the start date.

Nice one Steven. Give me a bell on the PM when we┬┤re good to go, so we can poll the dates for the group build.
