Alright guys, I wanted to run this past you, and see if there was interest in a Tamiya campaign, open to any scale and any subject, just has to come from the mighty Tamiya. No re-pops, and or re-boxings.

What do you guys think? I'm open to time frame, so if we wanna run this closer to spring and or summer, I'm certainly cool with that.

I'd be in. I've got a M41 Walker Bulldog I picked up for a rainy day build. Any thoughts on a start date?

I had a 1/72 F-16 CJ under the tree and I'm itching to get started. So count me in!

The sooner the start date the better for me. Will we be allowed to start the build earlier than the official start date as it is has been done on other recent campaigns?

Never been involved in one before but have a fair share of Tamiya kits in the stash. Anything to get me to build more would be appreciated and if it's a group build, so be it. Please count me in.

By "open to any scale and any subject" means that a ship model would qualify, right? If so, I have a 1/350 scale Tamiya Yukikaze that I would like to enter for this campaign.

wow guys!!!!! this is great, I never would have thought that this would even get looked at!

so does the timeline of February 1st 2016 to Sept 1st 2016 work?

And yes, subject matter and scale are wide open, planes, ships, armor, race cars, civilian vehicles. Anything that is in the Tamiya line, and comes in the Tamiya box is open and eligible.

Aftermarket is whatever you want, conversions, photo etc, barrels, decals, doesn't matter. However you want to build it, then have at it!
