Something I’ve been thinking about for a while… How about a campaign featuring: Rockets and Missiles.

Build a Rocket or Missile (or both) by itself, on a launcher, or any other way you can think to present it. Early history to WW2 to present (including Sci-Fi), both Military and Civilian.

Some examples - V1 to Space Shuttle. The new SA-6 or and old Gemini Capsule. Humvee w/ TOW or a Nebelwurfer.

OOB, conversions or scratch builds OK. Dioramas and vignettes OK also.

Running 6 months or so… Spring 06 to Fall 06. Campaign Ribbon and a jelly donut to all who finish.

Anyone interested?

Would a Sherman with rockets count for this proposed campaign??

If so...Count me in!

Sure would. Primary or secondary weapon system is OK.

Yes, My Scud B with TEL wants out of the box... it's been knocking on the top for a couple of years now!

I'm serious about the jelly donut, though. Don't tease a fat kid.

NEO -

Sounds like a winner. As a former "Missile Combat Crew Commander" when I was in in the Air Force and Strategic Air Command (SAC), visions of a Minuteman III spring to mind. Or since when I left the Air Force, I was in "Space Command", maybe a Titan IIIc or Delta? Then there's that Revell Saturn Rocket kit in the back closet gathering dust. Hmmmm.....the possibilities, the possibilities...Yeah count me in too!!!

Keep the good ideas flowing guys.


I'm thinking of the Nebelwurfer or an SS-12 myself.

Sounds good!

I'd like to try a British "Bloodhound" AA missile. It looks like a really aggressive, "come and get it" piece of work.

Now, if only I could find one. WOT? No modern(-ish) British stuff... Hmm, now ain't that a surprise!

How about modeling a "Hamas" member throwing a rock.... Is that considered a "Rock-et"?

I'm now LMAO! :-)

While I've tried to be very flexible on subject matter I think that's just alittle too broad an interpretation of the rules. LOL.

Nice try though.
