Alright, glad to see so many people joining in the game.

Here's my plan for an M8 greyhound with some Blackdog snowchains and Dioart C-ration boxes and maps, and the Mig figures. I've been thinking of adding a little jeep with one of the Dartmoor guys fixing it but I also want to make sure not to bite off more then I can chew and finish this thing.

Stefan: Nice list you have there, what program are you using?
I still need to get the replacement barrel for my Hetzer and then I'm good to go.
Does anyone know of a good seller in North America who sells Hauler products?

Jeremy, the program I use is plain old Excel and then convert it to jpg... Not very satisfied, I will have to find a solution with better resolution.

So here's my photos of the unstarted build:




Remember, everybody, a pic of the unstarted kit is mandatory for the campaign.

Cheers!

Stefan: I'm curious as to how you added the checkmark boxes in Excel?

And should I post a pic of my unstarted build, even though I don't have all of the AM parts yet?

Jeremy,
I recently placed an order with Track48 (some bits for this campaign) and other than slightly higher shipping and a little longer shipping time (about 9 days) the servcie was the same as any other reputable dealer - very good. I would highly recommend Track48.

Track 48 is actually a true mom+pop operation,I think they work out of their house,they have other jobs.I actually called the # one time,and a kid answered the phone and said my mother will be home after 6 !! But that being said they are nice to deal with.Meeta the owner goes out of her way to be helpful,it just takes a little longer.

Gents,

The great time is comming finally. This one is my victim for the campaing, although it will go a bit slowly because I have some other builds on the go at the moment. My plan is to add some figures and a decorated base later but nothing decided yet.





Happy modelling!
Lu

Hi all !!

I was so looking forward to this campaign that i almost forgot about it were it not for Stefan's banner that shows up everywhere

I was going to do a Firefly with Hessian Tape of Blackdog. Now I remembered that I hacked together most of the donor kit some time ago, don't even have the box anymore (arrgh..).
Now: do I have to buy a new Firefly kit to meet the requirements or may I use my old one and chop off everything I don't need?

It's almost done mind you so it is not a virgin kit!
On the other hand I have to throw away most of the upper hull bits and the complete turret with barrel and stuff. Plus for me the most fun part of building is painting.

You decide. Maybe gives me an excuse to buy a new kit (''but, honey, the guys said I need some new tanks...well, errm, two at least...why? ummm....ok one would be okay, but that I need....
