Hi all!

I know I shouldn't as there are too many campaigns already and I don't really have a lot of time lately, but with a little help from a good XO I think I will be able to lead another Campaign, now that the Korean War is drawing to a close.

I'm planning to finally crack open the box on one of the DML US Halftracks in my stash and I was wondering if anyone cared to join? I propose the following:

US Halftracks Campaign:
- Any halftracked vehicle based on the US design (i.e. also Israeli, British, Soviet, etc. versions). Also included is the M3A1 Scout Car as the Halftracks wheeled father.
- Timeframe: June - December 2012 (7 months; I think there's room for one more campaign in that frame)

Anyone in? Anyone care to be my XO?

Proposals for banners and ribbons welcome.

Cheers!
Stefan

Hi
I love halftracks particularly Israeli ones, always up for doing another one.
Still using the old Tamiya versions got to many to waste and could get about 3 or 4 for the price of a Dragon one.
Count me in.

Phil, I would think the issue was that you were not logged in on the right site. The link goes to armorama.com, if you logged in on armorama.kitmaker.com you would not be logged in on armorama.com. Sounds crazy, but I've noticed this several times...

Cheers!

Havent been involved in a campaign for several years, but this is one I need to get an old project underway that I have been planning for years ... long before the introduction of all the modern series of kits.
I have the old Tamiya M3A2 which I wish to build and also the M21 to steal the sides from, several Blast stowage sets, Eduard etch and TWS resin running gear and tracks. I have even a Plus Model engine.
When Dragon released all their modern kits, I really wondered if it was worth the bother, but have now decided to go ahead with this ... and the whole six months will be needed! Enlisted today!

I'm looking forward to this.

Is this too much of a start? I was just trying out my new etch mate.



Cheers Rob.

Naw, Rob, I think that's okay, as long as you don't do anything else until the start of the campaign. So what will it be?

Hey guys, anyone have any ideas for ribbons? Banners?

Cheers!
Stefan
