Hi Stanley,

If cross breading is OK then yes as I'm already entered in the Sherman campaign, but it would be good to see some Chuchcills,Grants, Cromwell etc running too.

Ooooh. Interesting. I've been looking for an excuse to build a Matilda. But can it start in 2011? I'm in three campaigns right now.

If it's a long campaign starting in 2011, then I can probably participate.

If it's a very long campaign (say all of 2011?) then I've got at least four tanks I could build for it...

Mind you, I'm struggling with the current crop of campaigns!

I am interested but the start date would decide for me, it would give me an excuse to start on the Challenger 2.

Stanly,
I have been looking at a Matilda now for a few months. The only thing British that I ever built was a LRDG Command Car for the Special Forces Campaign. So I could roll with a Matilda if its later in 2011 0r a year long campaign. Just have to get a hold of one

Get the newer Tamiya kit, it's supposed to be really good from the box. The older one needs some work to fix a few issues.

Consider it done. Just drop me a message for my inbox and I'll get to them when the campaign comes close to kicking off.

I'd be up for this one, a 2011 start would be perfect, and that makes 10.

I would join a British Campaign this next year. As others have mentioned, I have been thinking about the Matilda kit for a bit and, maybe a stretch for an armor campiagn, thinking about building the venerable tamiya 25lb-er and crew. So count me in!
