Hey All

Sorry for such a delay, going thru the Big D, and had some Military related stuff arise from my recent deployment to AFG. I see we have plenty of entries. now I will contact matt to see a Time frame when available, and get tready for future enlistments. As for time frame I am thinking at least a 9month long build but up to Matt. also as for the AM market goodies, that is up to your personal prefrences but I would say at least 3 Aftermarket Pieces to enhance your builds test and improve your skills and so on. As for me this wil definatley be a whole hog build as I have only completed 2 Armor models ever in the 3 years here joining Armorama and both were out of box. I will contact MAtt unless he sees this before I do. But I am excited to learn form you all experienced guys and the new builders as well it just is a pleasure to get new ideas tips and tricks to keep our hobby strong. Take care all

Euge

Sorry Ill send to John the Administrator for Campaigns.

Howdy Y'all
This may be the slowest campaign idea to become a campaign yet but we're almost there! Yippee!
I would like to make a couple of request: no ribbon with the Donald on it & allow builds that are 10-20% completed. I'll live if we reject my second request but I don't think I could have a Donald ribbon on my page. (Just kidding)
Take care,

Use Carl I's "Laughing Pig" in the ribbon. Make perfect sense to me.

Thanks Eugene,
No I need to dig out some of my kits, make sure they're no more than 25% complete and that I have the adequate number of aftermarket sets. I may not anything in this category so I might just start a new kit. Darn.
Take care,
Don "Lakota"

Hey Everyone The Whole Hog Campaign is open for business, I hope that some of you out there have a project that's been brewing in your minds as when to build it and try some after market. Well the time has come Hope to see lots of you out there join the campaign and see a lot of different projects and techniques that we all can learn from each other and keep our hobby going. see you in the campaign.

Eugene,
I recently acquired the Academy's M3 Grant along with Bronco tracks and the Eduard Big Ed PE set (actually three sets in one) plus the Squadron Walk-around book just to round out the order and gret free shipping. All in all a relatively ginormic build investment for me.

Will that get me in the door?

Eugene, this is a great idea for a campaign!

This is my plan...

Tamiya 1:35 panzer iv Ausf D (that old chestnut)
Friul panzer iii / iv tracks
Eduard photoetch set
RB model turned barrel and mg
Black Dog T35087 Pz.Kpfw.IV Accessories Set (It is for the Ausf J but I need the track and two road wheels that is hung from the front glacis)
Star Decals 35976 Afrika Mix #1 PzKpfw IV Ausf D, D/E and E (1:35)
Dragon 6693 DAK Panzer & Artillery Crew Libia 1941 (1/35)

Total cost, an eye watering 83.34 GBP... and to think the Tamiya kit cost just 13 GBP...

Can't wait to get it started.

Hey guys I'm entering my first campaign. Looking to do AFV Clubs Stryker M1132. Been om she shelf for a while. I already have a Big Ed set with slat for it. Going to dress it up with resin wheels and maybe a Legend engine. Im still learning working with PE. Should be a fun build!

Hi,

I normally am a Braille Scale modeller, but I have a 1/35 Dragon Panther A that was bought me as a present a few years ago, the build has stalled and I was wondering if this is more than 25% built for the campaign. I have already got the Fruil tracks and intend to get more aftermarket to do this as a vehicle from the 5th SS panzer division. If it's not ok that is not a problem as I will revert to form and do a fully tricked out Braille build.





All the best,

Paul

Hello everyone,
I have taken the liberty to start my wonderful and motivating build. I must admit that I have been infected with the disease that ravaged the modern armour building community: the Meng Terminator. I am adding missiles and lattice screens Magic Model, plus two 30 mm barrels from RB model. I am also contemplating about replacing the tracks, but I doubt it would be an improvement. Anyway, it is already dark here, so the photos are comming tomorrow.

Hello everyone I just enlisted.
This is my inspiration:



This is the kit I'm using as a base, I'm just going to leave off the engineer bits.



I'll be using Eduards additional armour panels, Slat armour and blast shields. also voyagers stryker duke antennaes. Haven't decided if i'll use DEF's wheels. I also haven't sourced the cam nets yet, trying to figure which ones to get. Any ideas?

This is certainly my type of thing and will encourage me to participate in my first Armorama campaign. Just need to decide what to use from my stash. Decisions, decisions...

Did you think about the AFV Club ones? They look like a good choice.

Cheers!

John,
Why set the bar so low? Certainly there must be more you can add to that?
