Campaign idea, to see if there's any interest! 6 mos. (half a year) to build a half-track; any scale,any war, any theatre... "What-Ifs" imaginized vehicles OK! (as long as it makes sense!) Simple rules;
*Must be a half-track vehicle, meaning generally a tracked car with 2-wheeled steering (as far we know)
*At least 2 in progress build and 4 finished photos minimal;
*Build for this campaign only

All in fun, it's my first Campaign proposal, so any hints/suggestions/advice/warnings and threats are welcome!

I'd be up for it if it started early next year as at the moment I'm running the Sdkfz 250/251 Campaign which finishes on 02/01/16 and I've still got about another 6 variants to go through. I've built two but I'm all half tracked out at the moment (individual track links have that effect on me) so I'm having a break from them for figures and tanks for a bit. With there already being a half track campaign running it would make sense to wait until that's finished even though it's specifcally German ones. Just saying lol. If it's early next year count me in.

We could run it from Oct 1 to April 1, if that would help with half-track burnout...;-)

Tom, are you looking for the M3A2 kit with nine figures? I have one a friend souvenired me a long time ago that is missing decals and 1 30 cal. and he had started some painting on. If this is what you are looking for PM me. Wayne

Tat, my mistake. It does in fact end at the beginning of December. For some reason I thought it was the end of December.

I have a Dragon Sd.Kfz. 251 Ausf. D w/2cm Schwebelafette (6292) waiting in my stash. I am in. An early 2017 start would be perfect.

I too would be interested in this campaign. I have been eying the Tamiya 250/9 and even ordered a set of dry transfers for it. Sounds like fun!

I'm potentially in as long as this doesn't start too soon--too many campaigns already in the works!

With everything else going on, I'm now thinking of a December or even January 1 start...we're close to at least ten, so do I need a go-ahead to formally propose the Campaign? I even have the Ribbon ready ;-)

Clayton,
How would you feel about a Kettenkraftrad? Only has the one steerable wheel, but I've been wanting to do one of those for a long time.
