Ha, I always wanted to build a M18 in it's element, knocking out german tanks in france while at speed. I will only be home for a week in november and then will pick it up in december when I'm home for a month. College gets in the way of building.

Howdy Y'all

I wouldn't mind joining if you include 1:144 scale. I have some Dragon kits that would be cute as a bug (and about the same size!).

-Sean thats sounds like a intresting project you got there mate, as dates and time restrictions of college and school, i plan to have finish date at June 2010 so we all should have plenty of time

-Don, i was going for scales 1:72 to 1:35, but i'll allow 1:144 too, happy building

i have scene building in my head of what im going to do for this campaign, for a while i've been wanting to do a small dio of either Iwo Jima or Berlin in the closing days of the war, i was thinking of depicting a T34/85 with bedspring armor charging over a heap of rubble and german chap lining it up with a panzerfuast,

or for the iwo jima idea, i was thinking of having Jap suicide troops charging a sherman with demo charges

well there my ideas, but im swaying towards the berlin dio

I'm very interested too if the deadline if far enough in the future. My builds go slow since I have a tendancy of building not-that-straight-out-of-the-box.

I have a Hetzer late, Jagdtiger final or E-10 I could release from my stash. But the Hetzer will probably sit there for another time since I just started working on an Aufklarungspanzer auf 38T (Recon Hetzer; paper panzer).

They are currently going through some staff changes and they are getting the back log of campaigns straightened out. So it shouldn't be too long before everything is approved and up and running.

Gary Kato and Mike High are stepping up and taking care of it all.

This campaign will definitely happen. The only variable is when. If I start this in November, would it be too much for people? One problem is that many people start a campaign then get distracted by others then ending up finishing none.

Howdy Gary ,

I resemble that remark about finishing none!

I'm buying and moving into a house in November. I wouldn't mind if we started later but I think it's up to the others. I'm only building a 1/144 scale tank destroyer by Dragon.

Y'all take care now.

Shouldn't take that long to build a 1/144 kit, right?
November is coming up fast so I need to make a decision. I'm going to go with the original dates of Nov 13 to June 6. I'm sorry if this FORCES people to rush out to the hobby store to buy a kit ("Honey, it's an emergency!"). And paint. And decals. And reference material.

Campaign approved. Don't forget to visit the official campaign page and enlist!! (Well, as soon as I make it official in a minute).

There should be a sticky thread in Aeroscale's campaign message forum of people who can design ribbons. I'm on the list but I lost my Windows PC (which is where I designed them) and haven't figured out if there's anything on this Macintosh that I can use.

My idea would be a tank in crosshairs.

Found a simple paint program for the Mac. Crosshairs are kind of hard to make visible in such a small thing. I changed to a smoking tank.

As usual, suggestions are welcome.
