Enlist here for Jeeps! Campaign

Jeeps! Willys, MUTTs, GAZ/UAZs (Da, tovarich), Type 87 VWs/Schwimmwagens, or Kübelwagens (Jawohl!). How about whoever and whatever you want to tow behind, strap on to, or bolt on or in it. Focus on Civil Service, or anything military between WW2, and Viet Nam. To keep it simple, the Jeep must be the focus of the piece--e.g. not a Tiger running over a Jeep.

Static display, vignette, or a diorama. Any manufacturer, and any (and all) AM is allowed, scratchbuilding is allowed and encouraged. Figures are fine. Open to any scale 1/6 to 1/72 (sorry guys no 1:1 ).

Dates are from July 01, 2017 through March 01, 2018. Typical forum protocol: less than 25% completed upon start of the campaign, post a pic of the kit you intend to build, and at least 2 WIP shots, then post your completed pic/s in the campaign gallery.

Let's have some fun and see what you've got!

can we clarify the parameters for this one

'Jeeps' are still in use so how modern can we be? (you stated Vietnam but that leaves out two major mid east wars, plus the gulf wars, afghanistan, Grenada etc...)

I assume Landrovers are included as well as mechanical mules?

if you want to make this a true 'jeep' campaign make the vehicle cargo classification the defining item. (1/4 ton capacity vehicles only maybe?)

Thanks,

The campaign is focusing on the Jeep, or light personnel carrier, cargo hauler, ordnance-hauler, et al. This does not include Land Rovers, or MULEs. Keeping it limited to the smaller, more "personal" vehicles such as the ones I listed: Willys (US, or British), MUTTs, GAZ/UAZs, Type 87 VWs, Swimmwagens, or Kübelwagens keeps things more in-line with my campaign concept.

Being as there is a trucks and trailers campaign in progress right now, I wanted this to be more about the people and cargo movers used by the day to day grunts. Add some stowage, have a little fun.

As far as the dates, how about anything between 1939 (Germany invades Poland) to 1975 (end of the Viet Nam war). Beyond that, I am drawing a line--I mean, we gotta have rules, right?

I hope this clears it up, and looking forward to seeing all of the finished builds!

Knuckles,

By UAZ you mean the UAZ 469?

I have a GAZ 69 planned as a Syrian army cast off. The truck itself is early 50's, but it will be used in a current Syrian civil war setting, so I'll have to think about something else if I can't get over the urge to join!

For GAZ let's stick to the field car variants. Otherwise we're getting into trucks. So, I'll have to say no to the 66 or 69 trucks.

Not a problem. It never hurts to ask. The UAZ 469 is a more modern SUV version of the GAZ 66 and used for the same purpose more or less. But I can see the difference in utility.

A WWII WIllys or Ford jeep is a 1/4 ton truck. I'll think about how a GAZ 1/4 ton fits into my project mix, as these were also used in Syria and were still around in '73. Probably be more fun to trick out than a 66 anyhow!

Thanks.

OOPS!

I meant to ask about the GAZ 69. I know the GAZ 66 is way too big. Sorry about that, it's my number dyslexia. It just dawned on me.

Awesome. Glad to have you along. This one should be a kick--lots of opportunity for towed ordnance, cargo, figures, and most of all, FUN!
