I think I should have waited before starting my Crusader AA


How advanced is your build. If it's not more than 10% done you may consider holding your work until starting date or you may get another kit (Dragon's Flakpanzer looks interesting for example).

Thanks for the thought Marcin, but it's about 75% finished.

Flak panzer!

75% is a lot and some paricipants might protest. Maybe you could find some other allied AA vehicle if you don't want to cross the line and join the dark side.

I can't decide whether to build a flakpanzer I, a wirbelwind, a ZSU Shilka, or the Sgt York I meant to do for the 'Old blood and guts' campaign but never got around to because of having broken my hand. all 4 are in my stash. I've done a little work (but not much) on the wirbelwind and Shilka, and it'd be nice to have an excuse to move those up the priority list for things to work on.

Hmmm....

I'd love to join this one if I could. I've got an idea for a flakpanzer 38(t) dio that I've been planning for a while now. only problem is that I'm planning on starting it earlier than the date for this campaign. school's in the way, and it'd need to be done y around late March, too little time for me.

My LAV-25 AA defense kit should be on its way from Lucky Models any day now, so figure 2 weeks to get it? Once its here, I'm in for sure.

Only thing that might throw it off is me moving. My family is building a new house, but wont be ready when we have to move out of this one. So for the time being, we get a 2-level apartment. My workspace can be backed pretty small, so I can take it with me, but timing may be an issue when I have to move everything into a little apartment (and some storage units), and then move it all back out to a house. I'll be sure to update you guys on how its coming though, and I dont think I should miss the deadline, even with my other campaigns going on.

I'm in with a "darkside" Armored cab with 3.7 cm Flak. I have an interesting idea to create a dio, hope time and luck helps, it should be real interesting if I can build it... hope no one else comes up with the same idea....

I picked up a 1/75th Ostwind at the local hobby store and now I'm wondering how to represent it given its limited use late in the war. Would it be acceptable to have it loaded, or loading onto a transport vehicle as a captured vehicle?

This is my first Campaign so I want to be sure to follow the requirements and provide the necessary updates as I progress. Any input from you veterans whould be appreciated.

I SO like the idea of naming this build "Duck Hunting!!!!" I'm in if it begins after the new year. I have no idea what I'd build right now but.....we'll see.

I have a Mobelwagen sitting on my shelf that I am trying desperately not to touch. It's unnatural to have a model just sitting there unstarted.

I'm in as well. Looking forward to taking part in this one.

I will build the Tamiya German 20mm Flakvierling 38 MIT Sd.Ah.52. I might think about building something to tow it with as well. I will just have to play it by ear and see.

Thanks for the campaign Marcin.
