I know Darren did the last Campaign (which was a lot of fun) but I cannot wait so I am proposing one myself! I'm thinking about one year run?

Un-started kits, any scale and any type of Panther (German WWII) tank. This WILL include Paper Panthers, prototypes and tanks that had anything to do with it's history.

I need to get back into building again and the 8X8 Campaign will be one of them so lets see the hands of 10 please!



Any thoughts?

HERE'S THE LINK TO THE GALLERY!

Hey Jeff,

I've got three 1/72nd Dragon Panthers to make for an Ardennes themed battlegroup. If the campaign kicks off smartly I'll be able to include them but I'll have to start em soonish either way .......

cheers

Well Brent, we'll have to see what John says. I'd like to start in the fall but he knows when we can.

So would September or October work guys?

If you pick a start date when the weather is getting cooler you may get more interest.

Yeah... you know how that goes. It just depends on the schedule. I think most Campaigns see more interest when it gets colder.

We'll see. Welcome aboard Mike!

Anything involving a Panther will interest me - count me in. I have several Panthers in the stash and ideas of making a Bergepanther Ausf G which will involve a fair bit of fiddling, use of spares box, kit bashing and scratch building. Yes, I know I could buy the TMD kit, but having to bash it together myself is more fun.

Regards

Exactly Rob! What fun is it to buy the kit when you can kit bash it with other kits and most likely have a better finished project.

I have been slowly gathering parts to assemble a true Panther II, like the Jentz book entails except I will venture into using a different designed turret than the Smallturm looking piece.

And welcome aboard Rob! Okay, we have 5 so far (hopefully) so we're half way there!

Hey, I have at least a few Panthers in the stash...

Count me in - more specially so if you are starting up fairly late in the year

Alright guys, we have more than enough! I'll send it in!

Looks like we will start October and run for 8 months... with a possible small extension for those (like me) that might need it.
