Funny - that was actually also the first kit that caught my eye :o - also it is Tamiya, you can never go wrong with Tamiya.

Well I was going to go with the majority vote and start the Greyhound. I even ordered some tires with chains on them and a aftermarket kit to make the front wheels turn to one side or another. Once I gathered everything on the bench and started looking through it, I have way to much after market and PE for it. I even found a set of Voyager PE fenders and storage boxes I forgot I had.

I just don't want to start a build with all of that,

For some reason my interests keep me looking at another halftrack.

Dragon 6425 Sd.Kfz.250/8 w/7.5cm K.51 L/24

I dont have any PE for it so it would be a out of the box build.

I would use these figures from Alpine 35077 middle bottom row.

I need to sort it out by Saturday. I really want to start building something. I need to keep my mind of this COVID 19 stuff. Working in the medical field, it honestly scares the hell out of me.

Shawn, I'd say build the story you want to tell or the goal you want to accomplish. For me, having a goal of telling a story or learning a new technique helps to keep the motivation going. Although, considering how much I've actually finished in recent years, I may be fooling myself. :roll:

I'm right there with you Matt. The build I just finished is the first build I have finished in about three years. :o
