Anyone up for another StuG Campaign? According to the schedule we are looking at a start after October of this year and maybe we should let this one run for a year or longer, to allow for some more complex builds.

Also, what do you guys think of allowing started kits? Not necessarily for lazy people like me (who didn't finish for his own Campaign) but for those that started a kit and just never got back to it for one reason or another. I would say they shouldn't be too far along, 25 or 30%.

Also I think the same rules http://www.armorama.com/modules.php?op=modload&name=Campaigns&file=index&req=showcontent&id=596 are good enough, except for the unstarted kits part.

So, what does everyone think? This will be the "Original" Crossover Campaign.

I should be able to find another Stug so count me in. Still have a few other campaigns to finish though. A years time frame sounds appreciative though the start date could be pushed forward some what. Thanks

Hi Jeff,
I would be very keen to join specially if I was allowed to try & finish the one I never got to finish for your first Stug campaign. It isn't even 25% started & if went for a longer time would help a slack a$$ slow builder like myself.
Cheers Mike

Thanks guys!

Hey Mike... I know the feeling bud. It was my first Campaign and I didn't know any better on the time length.

This time we'll go for a year + (?) and Trevor... I was thinking maybe even the first of December? How does that sound everyone? If we're lucky there should be some snow on the ground at that time for a true Battle of the Bulge feeling.

Or maybe we should just paint up some M47's, Gray? Or should that be another Campaign idea?

Hi Jeff,
that with the M47´s could be another campaign, and call it the "Movie Campaign". We could then do things like the crazy T34 Tigers from Kellys Heroes and of course the M3 half tracks done up as SdKfz 251´s , or the Graf Spee that wasn´t,
or .......

Oh by the way here´s one of my builds, if this runs for a year
I shall do two for sure:-

You can count me in! I have a Stug III F with Eduard photoetch (it's my first, all those tiny bits look intimidating!) or a Dragon StugIV that I can use.

Jeff,

count me in! I had a blast in round 1, and have several StuG'S in the stash just waiting to move to the top of the build pile!

Let's see, that makes almost 8 and Gary (BBD468) said he might be interested so just a few more to show interest and I'll submit.

Everyone okay with the December 1st 2013 start with a 12 month run... or more?

Sweet looking kit Dave and with a year run time you won't feel rushed doing all that AM.

So now with you coming on-board (awesome), and Sal on the fence needing a kit and our bud Gary yet to reply that would make it 10... but we need just a few more!


This is turning out great!

Yessiree!

I'm planning/collecting/researching for a Lrg-EastFront-Dio, one which will include a StuG IIIF as it's armor.



Something similar to these...

I'm probably in. I don't like to plan that far ahead any more. The time is long enough and it's not a subject that I have to get motivated to do.

I'm still a F/8 short in my StuG lineup so I'd probably do that.

I'm in. Might go for that new StuG III Dragon just announced. Maybe I'll even finish it before the last day this time?
