It is good to see a number of members that are/did take part in the Panther campaign looking to participate in this campaign as well. for a start and finish date how does Dec 1st 2012 until the end of June/July 2013 sound?



Darren a few other campaigns start in the beginning of December but none start in October or November. Maybe you should move up the start date
Just my $.02 I'm in either way

Sal as it is an 8 month window I don't think that will cause to much of an issue and there is always the option of adding time if needed within reason.

I was just getting the dates put down and noticed that the end date is before the start date. Need to correct the year to July 2013.

Trevor I did select 2013 but I suspect it is an issue with the move, Gary will sort it when it is approved.

It is my intention to build the King Tiger below with Cavalier Zimmerit, Friul tracks, and either an ABER or RB Models barrel.

Nice Darren! Are you matching the box art? I think that's my goal for this KT build.

I pretty much have the same project for this Campaign, but in a larger scale.

I will be using the ATACK Zimmerit kit, because the sticker sheet from the Production Kit is junk and cannot be fabricated to fit the different angles needed on this tank. It is designed for the Trumpeter Kit but that's life, it will be made to fit.



This Tamiya Initial Turret Tiger B kit.







I have been saving and squirreling back parts for years and heading into the winter time this will be an awesome project. I will use the tracks and gearbox from the FO Kit while the FO Kit will use an IMPACT Gearbox and metal tracks. To be built at a later time.

We're all glad this Campaign will become reality!

I will be building this



Extras I will be using are:
Spade Ace metal tracks
Voyager PE set
Voyager smooth mantle
RB or Voyager barrel

The kit comes with 8 Fallschirmjager figures and I also have 3 resin SS crew figures to go with it. I will be building '332' of SSpzabt 501. If anyone wants the magic tracks and turned barrel for their campaign build let me know

Jeff; that should be an interesting kit to watch coming together. I am considering giving the hairspray method an outing to show a worn white wash effect but it is not set in stone as yet.

Thomo don’t forget to register your interest on the campaign page, here is the link again if yoiu missed the the earlier one.

Matt that is a nice kit as I built it just after it came out, watch out for the tow cable as I found fitting them a pain but I admit it could just have been my ability at the time. That is a generous offer on the tracks and barrel, thank you for the offer and I am sure someone will have a use for them.
