Any vehicle or set of figures, any era, so long as it/they served in the United States military. Scale would range from 1:72 to 1:16. Basic rules for my campaigns are the same. I'm thinking starting April 19, 2015(in memorial of the first battle of the American Revolution) and running for six months. What do you guys think?

I like it. I have an old Tamiya M48A3 kit that needs proper care. It missed a few earlier campaigns, but it's a perfect match for this one, as far as my stash goes.
I would hum the Battle Hymn of the Republic the whole time I was building for this campaign!
Count me in. (no, really this time!)

Hi Matt!

Yes, good idea. A little very comprehensive, but fun.

Cheers!

I'm glad this is being received so well. If it gets off the ground, I promised my dad an accurate Hellcat.

Count me in. I'm not sure what I'd do though. I'll probably try to find something you might not normally associate with US forces. I'm assuming sea and river vessels are acceptable as well?

One stipulation is, no captured vehicles. The equipment must have been purchased by the US military.

Darn! Here it seemed this could be a great chance to do one of those captured German things with white stars slapped on by the new managers!

But the Boss says it's to be something "purchased by... us". So, that's what I'll take up. Maybe one of many new 1/35 Jeep kits out there. Or maybe the Bronco "Locust" - US version.... That one is waiting right by my bench for some love!

Go Army! Been there, done that, still have some (ratty) T-shirts. I'll volunteer for another stint.

Sorry, Bob. Captured vehicles is just asking for one offs. Besides, they would not have been OD. A note on that, your build does not have to sport the standard olive camo. I really hope to pull some first timers, in, on this one.

Be nice to see something that wasn't 20th or 21st century. Mentioned figures? How about a US Civil War cannon?

Might just join this campaign to get something from before the invention of the internal combustion engine in here.

Of course that is fine. That war was a defining moment, in our history.

I was thinking along those lines as well.

If this is a go I'm on. I have a couple of kits that might work.

Howdy Y'all
I wouldn't mind trying a Jeep or a Stuart. I'm in.

Thanks,

By my count, that's ten. I will get started on writing this one up and designing a ribbon. I've decided to change my build to Dragon's M1A2 SEP Abrams.

I'm glad this is being received so well. If it gets off the ground, I promised my dad an accurate Hellcat.



Which Hellcat..? The M18, or the F-6F-series aircraft..? Either way, would be great!!!
