Hey all,
with the release of all the great flakpanzers and SP flak tanks, half-tracks, etc maybe its time for a campaign?

This wouldnt start till the summer of 2010...probally go for 9-12 months to alow for some conversions and such.

all kinds of subjects out there...WW2 and Modern!

anybody interested?

I would be interested for a 4th quarter of the year start (or a long running time), depending on how my current builds go 'til then...

Cheers
Stef

I would be too, but after the summer.
A lot of campaigns I am doing end around june/july, so after that would be great!

I agree with both of you. I am also pretty busy for the next couple of months, and already commited to several projects (and some I need to finish). Thats not counting what review builds come my way

what if we did a June 15th start and run till March or April 15th (give us US citizens something to look foward to other than tax deadline!)

anybody else intersted? there has to be more than 3 of us!

How about making the subject a little wider and including all AA weapons, not only SP?

A.



thats an idea. I guess that would also include SAMs. Personaly I thought there was plenty of subject matter to do just a SP campain
--flak halftracks (10/4, 10/5, 7/1, 7/2, SWS, etc) plus the US based M15, M16
--M42 duster
--all the opels, 5 tons, MAN, etc trucks with mounted flak
-- Sgt York
-- M163
-- all the flakpanzers (wirbelwind, ostwind, mobelwagens, 38t, T-34, M-5 w/ flakverling, kugelblitz, etc)
-- Gephard
-- russian stuff
and I guess self propelled would also cover any SP SAM launchers.
thats just off the top of my head...

any addtional thoughts of opening it up to ground mounted and SAMs?

I would be intersted as long as it starts this summer. I have a few differet SP's haging out, it would give me a reason to build one.

few more subjects...
M6 Linebacker
SA-6
SA-4...(all those russian types)
M5 w/ maxon turret
M1097 Stinger
LAV-AD

I would even think a CWIS would qualify as it is mounted on board ships...

anybody interested? lots of subjects. Need a few more "yes, count me in". We wouldnt start till late summer/early fall, so plenty of time.

Definately something I'd be interested in, especially if it was an Autumn start and a 2011 finish, got an old Tamiya Sd.Kfz.7 with flak that has been collecting dust since I bought it about 8/9 years ago. count me in.

I say keep it to SP and include SAMs. For no particular reason other than I think SP already has a lot of options on its own (as can be seen from your list...).

To add to your list:

British Crusader AA versions
Canadian 40mm bofors mounted on trucks
US M19 and M14

Personally I would build a Crusader AA or certainly an M15 if Dragon released one by then...

If it's 3rd quarter I'll join up. Right now I maybe over committed. All of a sudden it's busy at work and I'm going for all the overtime that's offered. I have a M-16 and a 38t in the stash so all set there. Tom

With the recently released superb DML 1/35 Sdkfz / 7 Quad 20mm and 37mm Flak kits, Gepard, Wirlbelwind and pending Ostwind - GREAT IDEA!

Make a nice change from Panthers, Tigers and M4's.

Count me in.

Great guys, i think that at least brings us to the minimum 10..

Yep, lots of choices....now there is that cyberhobby panther flakpanzer too!

not sure yet what ill end up doing...I have the following in the stash already:
--taymia mobelwagen (3.7mm) w/ eduard and other bits
-- Revel 10/5 w/ Extratech, Eduard, and other goodies (maybe a new gun from Dragon?)
-- Tristar 38t 2cm flakpanzer
-- Opel blitz w/ 2cm
-- T-34 flakpanzer

before the campain starts ill be working on an M16 w/ lion roar set this spring... Id love to get another M16 kit and a 40mm bofors to make a M15A1 ...
