Hi Andy,
count me in with either A39 or T28. They are both on order
and already prepaid, just waiting and getting itchy fingers,
and a drooling tongue!

Now heres the reason why: 62 Euros and 90 cents Official price but because Im a a good customer at my LHS it cost me 52 Euros:











Now come on guys, join up!!! This is going to be one Big Barmy Army

I've also got an A39 on its way (do Turtles "flock"?...) but if the timeframe is long enough I might entertain the idea of scratching a TOG2. After all, it's mainly flat slabs...

I'm not holding my breath on an A39, I'll just have to be patient.

In the meantime, has anyone used Verlinden's resin engine upgrade for Dragon's old 1/35 Maus? If yes, how well do the tubs fit to the inside of the hull?

We need to pump this Campaign up a few notches! I mean, I am so excited to get the T28 AND the A39 too. I need to haul something around on my Tank Transporter build. Right?

So who has a good price on the A39 right now? I need to get one purchased by this weekend so I have both here.

We get this kicked off I just might build BOTH!!

Sooooo, who else is in? I mean, you guys could still build a Maus too.

No. Gee it won't be out 'till next month, but mine is paid for.

O.K., now this is interesting, may I ask what you have paid for the T28?
Mine is also paid for and it costs here in Germany 62.90
about 80$.
It would just be nice to know if everyone is paying about the same for these new kits.

Well, it only weighs 45 tons. The T28 weighs 95 tons and the A39 78 tons.

I would say no to that question. It might be close to a heavy designation, but not Super Heavy.

For this campaign the minimum weight will have to be something like 75tons and up ..this will count out every MBT in current service and all SPG's which i know off anyway
Now i know that there is some Russian prototypes which are massive and i would bet some of those have got to be 75tonners and up .man its hard to find info on those tho but if anyone can that would be seriously cool .

Hi Guys
Sorry about the lack of replys of late as my Dads not well.
What I will do is propose the campaign with the numbers we have as I've found that in the past we get more join when its offical and listed on the campaigns page with the others.
Cheers Chums
Andy
