I was sitting at work and thought about the upcoming release of the M1070 HET. The idea hit me...would there be a interest in doing a campaign based on the vehicles that either haul the mighty MBT's into battle, or the recovery vehicles that return them to the rear for repairs? I was thinking of the supply, fuel,or ammo trucks running the roads.

kits could include the 5 tons all variants, Hemmt's , LMTV family , wreckers, M88 type recovery tanks.. and the HET. Any era ..scale..etc, the main idea os to have fun building .

Any one interested in such a campaign? Thanks for any and all input
Jeff

I really like this one, it gives a home for kits that don't really fit in the other campaigns that normally run here.

Will you allow all scales? I would be considering a 1/72 International or REO.

Its a great idea!!
I have a maz 537 transporter, a m-26 recovery vehicle and a cromwell arv... Currently i am looking for a t-34 ww2 recoveryvehicle what it takes to make one.

Next year is extremely bussy for me. I am full with campaigns (4), in januari i have a new house, in februari my wife delivers my first newborn child .
So i have no time for this one... To bad... But i like the idea dough...

Regards,

Remco

Sounds like something different which is the type of kits I like Would all types of cargo vehicles be allowed like Opel blitz
Also what time frame are you looking to start it I'm pretty much booked up till the end of February

Thanks for the support! I' m really hoping we can get enough people to approve the campaign! I' m hoping a start date around the start of the yr running 6 months .but any ideas or concerns are welcome! The question about scale...anything would be welcome. I' m planning the Maz 537g.. Id allow any support track, truck, etc..pretty open!.

Thanks for the interest ...

Hello Jeff,

If your including braille scale then count me in. I've had a diorama idea for a Diamond T transporter recovering a disabled tank in North Africa for a while now.

Any time next year would be fine for me.

All the best.

A cool idea, for sure. Can we wait on this until someone makes the Navistar MRAP Wrecker in 1/35th scale and plastic?
That or their MRAP ambulance are things I'd really like on my display shelf someday.

I am interested as I have Legends M88A2 Conversion set that I need to do a build review of, and it would seem to fit right in here.

Thanks
