I have always been interested in Flak. By a coincidence I became aware of the campaign Achtung Jabo on Armorama (Today, Feb. 7, 2007).

The object on my workbench is an german SWS Flak 43 with a 3,7cm gun. I started to build the kit on Jan. 10th 2007. The SWS is sprayed with Tamiya surface primer and its ready for some serious airbrushing.

The vehicle will be positioned on a flatbedded railway wagon (Dragon: Schwerer Plattformwagen SSy) with some smoking figures.

Here is my entry for the Actung Jabo Campaign, a 1/72nd scale Ostwind, still in the box and waiting for me to begin. Still not sure how I'll portray this rarely seen (in combat) vehicle. Probably start this week. (Hope the picture "shows.")

Just opened the Sd.kfz 7/2 (Tamiya #35144) I cant remember how old it is, does any know when this kit was released? Any way I started it and just never got back around to it. As far as I can tell only ONE of the poly caps for the road wheels is missing. Plan to start this week or next. If I hit the lottery kits for everyone.

I just enlisted! This is my first campaign, and I'm going to go with the Sd.Kfz.251/21 Ausf.D “Drilling” from Dragon. After all, it comes with the Achtung Jabo crew. If there's enough time I'll put them in a diorama.

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.

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 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 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.

If my first try at a campaign works out (Arty Up!) I would be interested in this one as well.

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....

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'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.
