Hi Guy's,
I was wondering if they maybe any Interest out there in doing a part II of this Campagin?? I thought could be the same rules as before if that was ok by all?
For a timeline I was thinking maybe start 01.12.14 & going until say 31.07.15, incase there are others like me who build so slow!!

Cheers Mike

I'm in. I've got a HB LVTP7 that has been peculating in the stash for a couple of years. I'm think to go with Argentine or South Korean colors.

Ian

Best wishes,

Nice choice Paul, looks like that Bergepanter with 3,7cm Flak on it... but wait, roadweels are wrong, that AA-gun is not a 37 mm and...

IŽb be in with something from a similar timeframe (at least kind of) a JNA T-34 with rubber armor:

Hi Fabien,

Welcome on board & thanks for joing up!! Well it looks like the Balkans could be a popular theme.

That now makes eight so we are certainly getting closer

The Jugoslav wars have produced quite a few odd and starnge vehicles, so If youŽre searching for some inspiration (not olny T-34s in there ):

Yes. The Hobby Boss kit comes with the decal option for the Argentine markings. They are pretty bland; overall OD with a small national insignia. It's a nice kit with a full interior. I think it's missing the radios though. I've also got a Trumpy BMP-1P as a back-up, though I might build that for the UN Campaign.

Mike that is indeed the right answer . I promised you something from Badmans Madlab, and after the T55M18 Frankenstein I think this is quite fitting .

Ian my friend I should have guessed you would turn up here , I'm fine and yourself ?
How about a Challenger 1 from the balkans to stand next to your Chieftain?

Hi Guy's,
We have 9 contenders by my count so far, is their anyone else out there who wants to help get it over the line & become our magical number 10!!!

I have thought could open it up a bit more by allowing anything Post WW1 so can also cover USSR v Finland, Spainsh Civil War, Italy in Ethipohia etc.

Cheers Mike
