Well I have one more potential idea for a Campaign, mainly it's before someone else thinks of it! My last one as I have 2 already approved and one awaiting. I don't think 4 is too many for me to handle. We'll slate this to start next year sometime too, maybe mid-year?

How's everyone for anything mobile or stationary that deals with shooting down Aircraft? This would include Anti-Missile Systems too like the Patriot system but not an MLRS. Something like Scud mounted on a Maz or in a bunker like in Vietnam.

Flakpanzers, the 88mm Flak Series or Flugabwehrkanone (it was used against aircraft and armor as a dual purpose role) the M42 Duster or it's sister, the M19 Twin 40mm Gun Motor Carriage with those two turret-mounted 40mm Bofors guns on an M24 Chaffee light tank chassis.

And, any Flakpanzer whether it was purpose built like so many German vehicles using the PIV chassis or field improvising by mounting Flak Guns on like a T34 hull ... as long as it was actually built or a photo supporting it. Also, we gotta have the Paper Panzer Flakpanzer/Panthers in on this too but I doubt we'll need them.

So, what ya say Full-Time Campaigners? Anything else I may have forgotten or left out? It'll be the same as usual ... un-started kits, scratchbuilding highly encouraged, any scale and any brand too.

Argh! Just when all of my flaks are in some stage of "already started!" But with a year or so until the start, it gives me time to save some coin and get me a Duster. I'm in.

Happy Modeling, -zon

I'd join for sure, but too many things on my plate right now.
10 Campaigns + Management of 3 Campaigns ...
First 3 months of 2013 would be great, or start earlier but having more than 6 months..

Thanks guys!

I was thinking like a start of March or April 2013 and run 'till November or December 2013.

Might be a lot of wheels involved and could encourage setting it in a diorama of some sort?

I'm interested but I'm also way overextended. It'd have to start late in the year. I just can't commit to any more campaigns right now.

Fantastic guys, I knew I could count on you all!

Let's see, so far we have:


Jeff ~ Panther F

Phill ~ WARDUKWNZ

Zon ~ zontar

Mike ~ Tanksami

Sal ~ ltb073

That is 8 so far guys and with John (Nito74) on the fence with the proposed start we could only need 1 more?


What you say?

This is fantastic guys! Barely 24 hours has passed and we now have more than enough signed on to launch this Campaign into action!

I do want to thank everyone for joining in and making this a reality. I know it's a good subject matter and I hope we all have fun with it!

Just hope our Big Toe isn't too overwhelmed with approvals! I'll get it submitted right away!

In my apparent haste I typed out the word "Skud" and what I meant to use is the word "Sam" missile launch sites and mobile launchers.

I hope I didn't mess anyone up and if so, sorry ... go ahead with any plans to use the Skud.

I do hope Gary can fix it.


Also, glad to have you aboard Mike!

Okay, time to do some thrashin' and picture takin'!

I didn't realize this included SAMs as well. I'd like to build something along that line so count me in for next year. Mid-year is great.

Yeah, I'd like to see a lot of SAM projects. I thought I had one but turns out it's a SKUD launcher, which is cool looking on it's own but not Anti-Aircraft.

Jeff i am seriously glad that this campaign is gonna take off ..this is just to good a campaign for it not to happen .
One thing to think about tho .. can you imagine a Skud missile as a anti aircraft missile ?? my question would be is how big is the damn plane its meant to shoot down

Glad you feel that way but it first must be approved!

Either Trumpeter or DML, one of them makes a SAM mobile launch vehicle kit so I may look into that. If not, I have 3 possible ones to choose from. A Tamiya Sgt. York, the M42 Duster or a Italeri Ostwind.

AWESOME!! And everyone ... THANKS!

I'll announce my choice of kit to build when we get a bit closer to the start time. That way I can change my mind and John won't have a fit.
