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....

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 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!
What are you saying? Join the dark ones!

While I understand your title is meant to portray a warning about incoming fighter/bombers I would probably go with a more generic title than a WW2 German phrase. Wouldn;t want to let people think it was only for German AA units.

Well, it would definitely have to be after the New Year. I am running the Meow Camapaign and enrolled in the Tank Aces where I plan to do Barkman's Panther "D". And for my Master's project. A backdate conversion of a 350 scale Yamato for the Philipine Sea Campaign.

I have a 251 "Drilling" kit from Dragon I can tackle. Though one of those OPFOR missle shooters like a Gaskin or Gekko or a zoo-soo (ZSU 23-4)sounds pretty neat

I think this would be a great way to kick off the new year.

It will give me an excuse to do that old Tamiya Flakpanzer Gepard kit thats just collecting dust on my shelf.

A good idea. It allows lots of scope for participants to build a wide range of kits from a number of different countries and periods. I'm definitely up for it.

Although someone is bound to ask if some tank can be entered because it has an anti-aircraft machine gun mounted on the turret.


I think such entries shouldn't be allowed.

Quoted Text

Would prototypes be allowed?


Prototypes are ok, too.

Quoted Text

If small vignettes/dios are allowed [..]


Dios/vignettes are welcome.


Quoted Text

A duck hunter campaign ...


I'll treat that as name proposal if you don't mind, Robin.
What do you think about title "Achtung Jabo!" or maybe you other suggestions.

I'm in for a 2007 operation! If small vignettes/dios are allowed,I would do a flakvierling in a Tobruk type emplacement.
cheers for skeet shooting!

Marcin -

Sounds like a great idea. I've got a 'WirbelWind' and some other candidates to look at in the 'stash'. I'd love to join in. However, with "MEOW" and "Purple Heart" going on, the 'New Year' start is definitely the preference. Keep us posted.

Great idea for a campaign Would prototypes be allowed? For example a Panther with either a twin 3.7cm or twin 5.5cm flak turrets Or an M3A1 Stuart with a quad .50cal

A duck hunter campaign would be a good idea. Although someone is bound to ask if some tank can be entered because it has an anti-aircraft machine gun mounted on the turret.

It would be interesting to see the different towed, self-propelled, wheeled, tracked, cannon, machine gun and missile armed entries. It could be quite a large variety.

I thought some more of you guys would like to participate, but maybe I need to wait for some more replies. Thanks for all those who has replied so far.

Missiles as well? Especially with Trumpeter's new SA-2 and SA-6, Dragon's old SA-9.


Why not? We have to show all we have against friends from Aeroscale
Starting after New Year is good idea so this date would be proposed to Staff.
I'll wait few days more before submiting campaign proposal so we could declare at least 15 members wishing to take part in this one.
BTW I would enter with Italeri's Crusader III AA MK.III which is waiting to be made as vehicle of Polish 1st Armoured Div.
